Style File- Gabrielle Union for New York & Company!

FABulites, I might be a tad bit late but man oh man am I loving this  fashion collaboration between one of my most favorite actress Gabrielle Union and Fashion Powerhouse New York & Company.  I mean who would've thought it would be so great? Today I'm sharing with you all some of my favorite pieces from the collection and why I'm so here for this collaboration. Let's get started!


*Click the arrow to see addition collection pieces*

For many years I have adored the fashion stylings of Gabrielle Union. I'm not sure if it was the way she knew how to style her frame so perfectly, the way she often preached looking good doesn't have to cost a fortune, or the way she always looks like she's having such a great time with fashion. Whatever it was I was definitely on board for it. When I heard about her collaboration with New York & company I wasn't exactly sure how it would go but I can now say it's exceeded my every expectation. The collection comes complete with bright colors, a variety of different prints and patterns and best of all at least to me is that it makes me proud to get my grown woman fashion on! The very reasonably priced dresses, jumpsuits, active wear, pants, jackets, and more are perfect from everything from a day at the office to a night out on the town and everything in between. This is definitely a fashion pairing you want to pay attention to, It's absolutely everything!

The Birth, The Death, and the Monster Storm- What's Been Happening with the Frugal Flirty N Fab!


It's been almost 30 days since I last posted and while I can say I missed you all the truth of the matter is that life simply took over.  Not just everyday life, but the shit that happens in life to change you forever. I know I haven't shared anything personal with you before but with this post that'll be forever changed. I'm hoping the information I share with you today, inspires you to tell the people who are most important in your lives that you love them, I'm hoping this post inspires you to be more than you ever thought was possible, and I'm hoping this post reminds you that changes is good and life is short. You see I derived from the school of thinking that as a blogger you stick with what you know not how you feel. I now know that's the furthest thing from the truth and you will all soon find out why.

1. The Passing- You may have heard me talk about my Mom on the blog before but I never really went into depth about our relationship. You see from as early as I could remember I knew my mom was a special lady. The mother of 9 always had a smile and a positive word for all those she came into contact with and I'm proud to say she taught me everything I know about how to uplift, motivate, and leave others feeling better than they did before meeting you. She was everything! On August 22, 2017 I got the call that no daughter ever wants to hear. The woman I knew as the greatest mom to ever walk the face of this earth was no longer. My mother was finally free! I still can't even begin to put into words how this event has effected me but at the same time I found myself relieved that she was no longer suffering and in pain. Because of her greatness I have the most amazing memories and moments to look back on. I actually find the most comfort in knowing without a doubt she enjoyed her life to the fullest extent and I am just one example of her joy.

2. The Birth-Just 2 days before I laid my mother to rest I received one of God's greatest gifts. My only daughter gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl named Naila and again in a instance I knew my life would forever be changed. FABulites she is everything and at the moment I was nearly overcome dealing with the loss of my mother I was  put in the place to love again. OMG I'm a Grandma!! She was born weighing in at 6lbs 9oz and the joy she has brought to an otherwise not so happy situation is absolutely amazing. Now I have the opportunity to be to her what my mother was to all her kids and grandkids. What a blessing!

3. The Monster Storm-Just 2 days after laying my mother to rest and witnessing the birth of my very first grand daughter, mother nature introduced us to what was later titled the history making Monster storm or Hurricane Irma. She showed up and showed out at a time when I found myself most vulnerable. All I wanted was to be alone to deal with all the changes happening in my life but somewhere somehow the world had other plans. Even with everything I was dealing with I kicked into Super mama mode during the hurricane. I'm not sure where I mustered up the strength but I made sure my kids, grandkid, and family were all protected and had everything we needed to make it through the storm. I made it my business to make contact with all my neighbors and make sure they were all good, and I even managed to try to motivate and be a source of inspiration for all those going through this and any other type of storm. I knew without a doubt no matter what happened with hurricane Irma that we would overcome and so it has begun.

Now I hope you have a better understanding of exactly why it's been so long since my last blog post. Lot's of life happening around these parts and Life changes things. I can't wait to share with you the positivity that comes out of these changes and please believe me when I tell you it's coming! I'm just a girl who wants to change the world for the better and nothing will stop me from doing so! I have the Will, the Heart, and the Know How to do it so FABulites promise me that you'll continue to inspire and motivate me along the way!

Summer of Savings with Walmart Family Mobile!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #SummerIsForSavings #CollectiveBias #WFM3


Can you believe summer is coming to a close? I can't! It has been the most amazing summer ever for my family and I and I can proudly say I owe a great deal of that to the frugal fabness of the Walmart Family Mobile Plan. This Summer I decided to take full control of both my Finances and Time Management by just living in the moment enjoying my family every step of the way and I'm proud to say that with a little help from Walmart Family Mobile I managed to do just that!




My kids are growing up so fast. That's why  I'm thrilled I realized sooner rather than later that now is the time to create lasting family memories because once today is gone we'll never get it back again! We place such an emphasis on working but when it's all said and done how many of us later end up regretting the amount of time we spent working instead of enjoying our families. With the help of the Walmart Family Mobile Plan it's truly been a Summer of no Regrets and one we'll cherish for years to come.



I kicked my summer off by heading to the nearest Walmart to see exactly what they had to offer. When I laid eyes on the LG L59 Grace I knew without a doubt my Summer would be immediately kicked into gear.

Now that my mobile plan was hat I wanted it to be and saving me money It was definitely time to enjoy the fruits of my labor. For months I'd wanted to spend the day relaxing at a great day spa and this summer I was able to do just that. It was completely invigorating and I'd definitely recommend it if it's something you've been considering as well. Five minutes in and I'm positive your only thoughts will be how come you didn't do this sooner!


Sometimes the best thing you can do is just spend a couple days away from your everyday surroundings. This summer we were fortunate to be able to take a little  family road trip and stay at this amazing townhouse in Orlando. It was absolutely amazing and came complete with the newest of appliances, furnishings, and tons of things for the whole family to do. Who knew simplicity could be so magical?


I'll be the first to admit that I'm not really one for the great outdoors so when I agreed to spend the might away camping I think it caught everyone off guard. It'd mazing what you'll do in the name of family and much to my surprise it was an amazing experience we'll share for a lifetime over.


No summer is complete without several family friendly trips to the beach. Each outing I tried to make sure was more exciting than the last one for my boys. I made sure I packed all their favorite snacks, beach toys, and more, Summer of Savings, Please don't go!


Thank you all for allowing me to share with you just some of the possibilities that can happen when you decide to give Walmart Family Mobile a try.  Don't take my word for it, get a LG L59 Grace and $49.88 PLUS Plan  powered by T-Mobile and see it for yourself.

Blue Floral Wrap Dress Fit of the Day!


FABulites there's been so much going on with me lately it's no hard to tell if i'm coming or going. With so much happening I've been feeling a little out of my element. Not dressing up as much as I use to, not going out as much, and not really having the urge to look pretty I knew this was a phase I needed to say goodbye to. What does a girl do when she wants to spruce herself up without breaking the bank, She heads to Ross!

Wrap Dress-  Fashion-Style-Ross-Deal

I was in the store all of 10 minutes and out of nowhere this beauty jumped out at me. At first it was the color that drew my attention because I know most blue colors look great on my complexion.

Floral Dress- Maxi-Deal-Ross

It' wasn't until after I tried it on that I realized this dress had tons more to offer besides the obviousness of the amazing color. This beautiful floral wrap is super figure flattering, has a great pattern, shows the perfect amount of skin and just makes you proud to be a woman. When was the last time you bought a dress that made yo feel like that?

Wrap Dress- Summer Style- Fashion Trends

For the first time in weeks all I could think about after purchasing this dress was how I was going to style my dress, what shoes I was going to ear with it, what makeup I'd chose to wear with it, and best of all how I was going to share my Fab Find with all of you!

Natural Hair- Fashion- Style

Can I just say all over again I'm totally in love with this dress. So much so that I actually purchased 2 of them the other one being in my favorite color red. Rest assured that one will also be making it's way to a Frugal Flirty N Fab fit of the day post soon enough!


Floral patterns have always been good to me so when I noticed the dress was covered in pink floral flowers it was a no brainer that I'd rock my Boutique Sales Chic "Chic in Pink" Block Heels with this dress. I love how they add that pop of color to my look without distracting from the beauty of the dress.


Don't mind me just doing my signature pose on the wall because I got this superfab dress at Ross for a Super Cute $11.99! Yep you heard me right FABulites, This gorgeous wrap dress cost me a mere $11.99, Need I say more?


Thank you all for allowing me to share with you my Ross Fab Find of the day  and also for reminding me that looking and feeling good never has to cost you a million bucks! We all  fall off the track ever now and then but its good to know that we can also get right back on track!

Lavish Alice Must Haves!

I absolutely love when I come across a new designer that aligns so nicely with my brand,  and that's exactly what happened the other day while I was surfing the net looking for a couple fashionable options to send my summer off in style. At first it was the asymmetrical dress that caught my attention, followed by the most amazing pair of pants and then a geo print jumpsuit my soul couldn't seem to live without. All three pieces were courtesy of the brand Lavish Alice and immediately I wanted to learn all about them and more!

The Real on Revlon Colorstay Foundation!


FABulites, Have you ever accidentally fell into something only to later realize your union was inevitable and always meant to be? That's exactly what happened last week when for the first time I stumbled upon the greatness of Revlon ColorStay Foundation and  today I'll be speaking to all of you about how that chance meeting has since forever changed my life!

Makeup- Foundation

Just like a majority of you, I am also a creature of habit, so when I ran out of my favorite foundation, Nars Sheer Glow I wanted more but wanted nothing to do with the hefty price tag ($45) that came along with it. I mean I'm a bargain shopper and I absolutely and whole heartedly believe in my craft enough to know that there were less expensive options out there for me and that I just needed to take the time to find out exactly what my options were.



My coupon game is super strong! So strong that when I received a coupon for $5 off any Revlon foundation I knew this was my chance to test it out without feeling like I was just throwing my money down the drain. I wasn't at all familiar with Revlon foundation but I was willing to give it a try and see if I liked it or not. I was in the store for what seemed like forever trying to make sure I was picking the right one. I wasn't exactly sure what color worked best with my complexion or what was best for my skin type. What I did know was that I wanted something that could be worn daily nd that gave me the coverage I needed and at that moment, Revlon ColorStay entered my life for good!

Beauty- Natural-Foundation-Melanin

 I could not believe how perfect Revlon ColorStay was when I put it on. I'm no makeup expert by far but in no time at all I knew my skin was digging it. It was light, easy to apply, long lasting, didn't turn orange and gave me that flawless look I was going for. Revlon ColorStay, forever sold to the Frugal Flirty N Fab!

Frugal Makeup-Flawless Coverage

Thanks for allowing me to share with you my brief review of Revlon's Colorstay Foundation. What are some of your favorite drug store brands that give you the same flawless look the top more popular brands offer? Have you tried Revlon ColorStay and if so, what were your thoughts?

Fab's Must Have Summer Essentials!




Summer is definitely one of my most favorite times of the year. The kids are out of school, BBQ season is in full effect, the weather is beautiful, and it's just the most perfect time to sit back and enjoy some good times with your family and friends. Because I make it a point to make my summer months the most enjoyable I can, today I'd like to share with you some of my personal favorite Summer Essential to make sure it's done right, Let's Begin!



SUMMER GLOW-One of the first things you need to get you through the summer months is a great summer glow. This glow can be achieved by simply allowing the sun to naturally Sunkist your skin (safely), or by applying a really good skin bronzer to your face neck and maybe even the shoulders. You'd be surprised at just how far the right summer glow will take you so get up, get out, and get your Glow On!


SUMMER PEDI/SANDALS-Summer just isn't summer without being able to show off that cute new pedicure or fun perfect sandal. Take this time to enjoy something different, something fun. This is the perfect time to try that really bright nail color you were afraid of in the past and I personally think you're in human until you've rocked a pair of sandals to the office just once or twice. The summer months were meant to be enjoyed so show the world just how much you're doing that and have no regrets about it!


SUMMER SWEETSPOTS-I know you knw we all know the summer heat can be a little unbearable but at times but it's during those times that I need you to know that SweetSpot Labs Coconut Lime Gentle Wash and On-The-Go Wipes products have you covered. Coconut Lime Personal Wipes. are great for daily use in freshening up your sweet spot but also great before/during/after your period, wiping down your whole body after a workout (armpits, back of knees, neck etc..) while you’re at the beach, when you’re traveling, or just sitting in the car too long.  The Coconut Lime Gentle Body Wash is the only one product you'll need in the shower that' safe and gentle enough to use all over. Both the wipes and wash are alcohol and sulfate free and can be purchased for a cute $5.98 at your nearest Walmart location. These products are naturals, gentle, and smell amazing!


Summer is whatever you make it and I chose to make mine fantastic. Hopefully by utilizing and taking advantage of some of my Must Have Summer Essentials  from the glowing skin to the SweetSpots yours will be equally as amazing. What's topping your current Summer Essential list?

14 Must Have Summer Sandals!


Hey yall Hey and Happy Monday! How's the month of July treating you so far? Things have been super busy for me but not so busy where I can't take the time to share with you my Top 14 Must Have Summer Sandals! I got the most amazing pedicure this weekend and from that moment on I couldn't seem to get my feet or finding the most perfect pair of sandals off my brain. Let's take a look and after viewing you can let me know how I did with my selection.

I take caring for my feet very seriously and this includes making sure that pedicure stays on point far beyond the summer months as well as making sure they stay dressed to the T if you know what I mean. Sandals are cute, creative, functional, and when done right can be downright adorable. They come in a variety of prints, styles, and colors and can be purchases with even the smallest of budgets. Some of the things I look for when I'm shopping for sandals is great color, embellishments such as stones, fluff, or tassels, and a cute print. Just because sandals are flat by no means says they have to be boring or ugly.

What's your strategy when it comes to selecting the perfect pair of summer sandals? Which of my Top 14 Must Have Summer Sandals are topping your current Must Have List?

Frugal Flirty N Fab Covers Essence Music Fest!

Just when I think 2017 couldn't possibly get any better something happens to make me change my mind. In reality I'm just a Mom trying my hardest to live my best possible life while motivating, uplifting, and encouraging my family and friends along the way. Imagine my shock when I got the news that I'd been approved to cover one of the largest music festivals in the World after having it on my BucketList for over 5 years! Yep you heard it right folks. The Frugal Flirty N Fab had the honor of covering this years Essence Music Festival and today I'm sharing some  of the Festivals most memorable moments with all of you!


As most of you already know I'm a huge Mary J Blige fan so of course I had to be front and center when she hit up the Walmart stage.


This video of Mary performing will give you a little glimpse into why I love her so much. At one point or another this has been every one of us at the family BBQ!


One of the Weekend's most anticipated performances was that of Super Group Escape and trust and believe the ladies didn't disappoint!


Lately I'm absolutely intrigued by every move Chance the rapper makes! To be so young and talented and have such a powerful urge to give back is absolutely amazing!


 I have been a fan of this woman, Diana Ross since before I was even able to walk. It was a dream come true seeing her grace the Essence Fest stage.


I know I've said it before but there's something so soothing and calming about Monica's voice and presence. It's like she's a walking World Peace poster.


"Star" was definitely one of my most favorite shows of last season so it was truly an honor to hear them speak on the direction of the show and what we can expect next season.

Thank you so much for allowing me to share with you some of my highlights from the 2017 Essence Music Fest. I just wanted to send a special Thank You to my niece Sheniqua who captured all of the above pictures and videos  and covered for the Frugal Flirty N Fab!

Did you attend EssenceFest? What was your most memorable moment?

Hippy Heart Fit of the Day!


Hey yall hey and happy Monday!!! I hope everyone enjoyed a fantastic weekend. Mine was pretty good but as always I look forward to next one being better. Today I want to share with you my Hippy Heart Fit of the Day and I'd also like to have a little conversation with all my Mom followers about how much if any influence your kids have on what you wear. Let's get started!

Hippy Heart/ Boutique sales Chic/ Fashion

So allow me to set the scene. There I was getting ready to go have a drink with the hubby looking and feeling all cute when suddenly these words came from my 14 year old son's mouth, "Ma, that shirt is about 20 years too young for you to be wearing"! I laughed when he first said it and brushed him off but then when he said it again I really had to think about it.

All Black/ Block heels/ Jeans

So here I am, a 40+ Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger, Fashion boutique owning Boss who prides herself on being able to wear what I want when ever the hell I want to wear it listening to my 14 year old son's Mom fashion do's and dont's.  I mean when and how did this happen? Up until this very moment I had actually never considered anything actually off limit but am I finally at that age where I need to be a little more careful when choosing the things I'll wear? Am I?

Online shopping/ Sale/ Deal/ Trends

Hippy Heart is one of our best selling shirts at Boutique Sales Chic. I fell in love with it the first time I laid eyes on it and immediately knew I wanted it to be for sale at our boutique. I mean in my head this top is uni-age. That may or may not be a word but you know what I mean. I know there are some tops that women over a certain age might not feel comfortable wearing but in my head this one just wasn't one of them. If I'm being truly honest with you, I love this top because it gives the GIRLZ a little extra shine time. Women of all ages want the GIRLZ to shine a little , Right? Don't yall dare judge me!

Choker TShirt/  jeans/ block heels/ Boutique Sales Chic

Is there some truth in what my son was saying? Am I now at that age where I can no longer just wear whatever the hell I want to wear? Is it time to switch from Hippy Heart to Change of Heart? Clearly FABulites, I have questions!

Is my Fit of the Day inappropriate for a Mom or woman of my age? How much of an influence do your kids have over what you wear?
