FALLing for Milani!

 
Hey yall Hey! How's everyone doing today? Fine I hope! I have never actually done a makeup post before but lately I have been so obsessed with Fall Lipsticks that I thought it would only be fair if I shared a little of this Love Fest with all of you so get ready to find out why I'm FALLing for Milani!
 
 
Confession, Until the middle of last year I kind of  stayed clear of  Fall or any of the darker lipstick options. I'm not really sure why but for some reason I just didn't believe I'd be able to pull the look off. It wasn't until I came into contact with my very first Milani Matte that I knew I was doing myself a huge disservice and It's been nothing but Love ever since.
 
If you have subscribed to my You Tube channel then you already know of my excitement picking up Double Espresso and Sweet Nectar and when I combines those two with my fall favorites from the previous year Milani Matte and Flirty I knew without a doubt I have this thing call FALL on lock and I just can't wait to share additional looks with you. What I love the most about the Milani brand of Lipsticks is the great coverage, affordable pricing and the super fab color options that look great on a variety of skin tones. I also appreciate the fact that I can find Milani everywhere from the Drug Store to the Beauty Store to my favorite Department Stores, Milani all around!
 
Thanks for allowing me to share with all of you exactly why I can't get enough Milani! Are you a fan of Milani Lipsticks? What colors are you looking most forward to rocking this Fall?

Fab's First Video Fit of the Day!

Hi Guys, It's Thursday and I must admit I woke up feeling pretty fantastic today and hope you did as well! Today's the first official Day of Fall and although I can't tell the difference by far (Florida girl) I can definitely sense a change in the air. I feel like its the perfect time for growth and new beginnings and with those 2 things in mind I'd like to present you with my very first Fab's Fit of the Day Video!
 

 
 
One of my favorite things about being a Blogger is that you never stop growing and learning. When I realized that on my running days I have very little time to prepare for my day I knew it was my turn to share one of the ways I'm growing with all of you. Being that on these days it's now more important than ever that I find something to wear quick that needs very little attention and also that's going to make me feel Chic and Confident through out the day I knew the time was now to share a quick video with you showing how my look came together. When I matched this blue midi skirt with my basic off the shoulder over sized black tee I knew I had a winning look! That's why it's so important to not only fill your closets with the perfect Date Night looks but you also want to make sure you have your fare share of what I like to call (anytime) pieces that you can mix n match and put together on short notice. Makes all the difference in the world and I can't begin to tell you the peace of mind and confidence booster that comes along with it.
 
Thank for allowing me to share with you all my very First Fab Fit of the Day Video with all of you. If you like what you see please make sure to Like and Subscribe and then look forward to seeing more!

Things to Think about Before Heading to a Disney Park!

It's always good to GetAway, and  when you add in enjoying a little family time with your kids it  gets even better, but have you ever looked so forward to a family getaway then realized you weren't nearly as prepared as you thought you were or should have been? If so then you can definitely relate to this post, Let's Get Started!


I was so excited about being able to spend the weekend away with my family in Orlando that I, the mother of all planners failed miserably at planning accordingly. We had the four park 1day park hopper pass and can you believe I allowed myself to believe that we , 2 adults a Teen and a Toddler could actually take on all four parks? Silly Rabbit, Tricks are for Kids! I'm not saying that it can't be done but I'd definitely be interested in seeing the family that's able to pull off that fete!


I failed to realize that just because my Toddler enjoys seeing certain characters on TV does not mean that he won't freak all the way out when they appear up close and personal in his face! This picture was taken just moments before the bug attempted to have a friendly conversation with him and he leaped on my head screaming at the top of his lungs and holding on to my hair for dear life! It was so embarrassing because my hubby had to help me get him off and I know for sure there were laughs and illegal pictures taken!

Disneys Animal Kingdom

I clearly was not thinking properly when we got to Animal Kingdom and decided it would be in our best interest to go directly to see the Festival of Lions performance. My toddler is probably the biggest Lion King/Lion Guard fan there is and it brought me so much joy seeing his little face light up during the show but the tantrum that followed once the show was over was another story! He did not want to leave by any means and pretty much demanded Simba come back out for a repeat performance! If I would have been thinking I would have saved this performance for the end of our visit and not the beginning. Timing is everything!

Huge tree at Disney World

I was not prepared for the beauty of the 2 parks we visited. I feel like you should probably take a day alone just to walk around and see all the scenery. I enjoyed being able to take in what I did but I'm pretty sure there was tons of nature that was missed.


I should have had a better plan for seeing the animals at Animal Kingdom. Because I failed at planning things out I hate to say we barely saw any! No Lions, Tigers or Bears this go round!


I definitely was not prepared for how HOT it would be! I'm a Florida girl born and raised so I know a little something about HEAT but this was something all together different. I swear there wasn't a body of water around that I didn't feel like diving in! The Heat was Torturous! For the first time in forever I actually felt like I was melting! Did I mention I arrived at the park in my cute little off the shoulder jumper and sandals?  Anyone in their right state of mind should have known to wear sneakers, a dry fit shirt and comfy shorts. Lesson learned!


I should have been better at mapping out what Theatrical shows we wanted to see and which ones were of no interest to us. I'm pretty sure we missed out on some of the better ones. Maybe not better but catered more to our liking! When I finally had the chance to review what was actually available for us to see I knew immediately I screwed up! Can you believe we even missed the parade? Who does that?


While most times I greatly enjoy living in the moment this was one time I wish I would have taken more pictures and captured my families memories. After all was said and done I came home with tons of pictures from the park and only one family photo that was too dark to even make out. Next time I'll know better!

Disney Ferry Boat

Disney is huge and there's a lot to see so next time I'll make sure to pay careful attention to the different modes of transportation at each park. I was so thankful for the Ferry Boat and Train but afterwards I had to question if we used either to the best of our ability. At one point we sat on the train and came to the same stops 3 different times....All Aboard!!

Disney Water Ride

Last but not least I'd make sure that we reserved our times for the FastPass before we even arrived at the park. I love the fact that Disney makes it fair and provides all their guest with speed passes but what I failed to realize was that you had to reserve your time on each ride in order to use it! The lines were so long it made it very difficult to get on too many. You also have the option of downloading the My Disney Experience app on your mobile and being able to  reserve rides and make changes on the go. You live and you learn right!

Thanks for allowing me to share with you my Things I wish I would have considered before my weekend getaway to Disney World. While my family and I enjoyed the most magical experience I hope reading my list will help you and your family better enjoy your time spent there and create lasting memories.

The GetAway!

Last week was a tough week for me and although it was only a 4 day work week there was just something a little unpleasant about it. My 3-4 hour commute to work was frustrating, my toddler refusing his bed time was frustrating, my not achieving the work out results I expected was frustrating, and me just not being on my A game was Super Frustrating! What does a girl do when life gets a little hectic? She calls up a couple of her friends and hits the road for a little Family Fun and GetAway!

VW Denim Beetle

Blogging definitely does have its privileges! Once I was certain I wanted a Weekend Getaway I called up my friends at Volkswagen  and asked them to send me over the cutest thing they had available. I wanted to hit the wide open roads in style. When I plan a road trip, I plan a road trip complete with all the Mom approved Kicks and Giggle available! Imagine my surprise when I heard a knock at the door and saw  this little beauty, the 2016 VW Denim Convertible sitting Chic and Pretty!

VW Denim Beetle Interior

I absolutely adore everything about this Denim Beetle. While some might say it's not practical enough for most Moms, It gave me a much needed sense of adventure and the look on my kids faces was more than enough for me! My immediate thought was trying to figure out what outfit I would wear to match the beautiful denim interior!


The Beetle Convertible Denim has a special Stonewashed Blue exterior color, Denim Blue convertible top and heritage wheel design that makes a true classic timeless. It's powerful turbocharged engine makes it more practical than other high style small cars.

Why I love the VW Denim Beetle Convertible

Don't we look great together, Fab and the VW Denim Beetle! MomLife! While I've dove to Orlando a million times before this was my very first time doing it in such style! The road felt amazing and for the first time ever I enjoyed every bit of the ride. I know it might sound a little crazy but for real for real, that steering wheel felt like silk in my hands! Fab indeed!
VW Denim Beetle Convertible

Once I had the car of my dreams the only thing left to do was to figure out where I wanted to go. That's when my second call came into place and I phoned my friends at Fountains at ChampionsGate in Orlando and let them know we were on our way!

Fountains at Championsgate Orlando

The Fountains at ChampionsGate is a luxury rental community in Orlando that houses three and four bedroom villas and is the most perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway!

Fountains at Championsgate Villa

Each unit comes complete with a fully appointed kitchen, upscale furnishings, and the most fabulous of living areas. The most perfect of weekend escapades!

Inside Fountains at Championsgate Villas

We arrived at the unit around 11pm on Friday night and from the moment we opened the door I was head over heels in love. I was in total awe of all the space and the beautiful decorations and lighting. Don't get me started on the marble kitchen with stainless steel appliances! Dreamland for sure!


I loved the fact that BabyFab was able to run around so freely  in the over 1900 square feet of space. He most certainly enjoyed the multitude of TV's in every room while his big brother was in awe of the Blu-ray/DVD player and Playstation®3 console  plus unlimited DVD and game rentals*. Can someone say Win Win!

My visit to Fountains at Championsgate

You already know I had to take the opportunity to do a cute little photoshoot. My beautiful surroundings proved to be the most perfect of backgrounds! The lighting throughout the villa was pure perfection!

Fountains at Championsgate Pool

When we weren't enjoying the indoor features of the resort we headed to the pool area and did what we do best, created lasting family memories.

FABulites, We all have to get away sometimes, and Thanks so much for allowing me to share with all of you how I prefer to do it in style! Make sure to check me out on Instagram where I'm sharing lots more of what the fam and I got into this weekend and beyond.  If you plan on visiting Orlando anytime this fall make sure you check out the Fountains at ChampionsGate Fall Special here allowing you to save up to 30% Off the Best Available Rates! Trust me when I tell you your family will love you for it! For additional information on the 2016 VW Denim Beetle please click here

Fall's Must Have Dresses!

TGIF Luvs! We are just moments away from the weekend and I don't know about you but for me its On and Poppin! In the spirit of me being fully aware that many of you are going to hit these mean shopping street this weekend I thought I'd do you a little favor and save you a couple coins by sharing with you my current Fall Must Have Dress Obsessions and wouldn't you know it they are all priced below $50! Let's do this!


 The Color, The Style, The Ruffle, The Dramatics, I don't care what I have to do to make this work out for me but you can definitely expect this little number to be hitting a Frugal Flirty N Fab blog post in the near and dear future. I know I can't be the only one completely obsessing over this beauty. I mean I've already decided how I'm going to wear my hair and what makeup options will work best for this look. Fab indeed, I digress!
 
Dresses excite me and for that I will never apologize. Because I'm unselfish and generous with the things that I like I make it a point to share those things with all of you. I plan on convincing you one day at a time that style doesn't come with a expensive price tag and that looking great is more about confidence and grace instead of how much said item costs. I believe at any moment Cheap can be Chic and its with my Fab Finds and Looks of the Day that I intend on showing you how!
 
Thanks for allowing me to share my Friday Obsessions with you. Which of my Favorites are topping your current Must Have List?

Floral Heels
 
You ever go crazy over a pair of shoes and then when you get your hands on them you never get around to wearing them? These are the perfect example of that syndrome. Just sitting pretty in my closet waiting patiently to be worn and today was the day.

Labor Day Kick Off Fit of the Day!


TGIF Luvs!! Were just hours away from having the Labor Day Weekend of our Dreams and I'm so beyond Here For It!  Although I don't have anything really special planned I am looking forward to three days of Family, Fun, Fashion, and Food in that order! In honor of this Holiday before I thought this would be the perfect time to share with you one of my favorite Weekend Coming looks with you and today that look is all about the Almighty Jumpsuit!

 
FABulites, Man oh Man I can barely put into words exactly how happy this jumpsuit from Marshalls makes me! It's everything that a Friday is all about and them some. There's a Great Print, Wide roomy Legs, Open Chest, and it has Pockets, Winning!

 
Do you all see those cars coming behind me? Clearly this jumpsuit states, "Go Around"!

 
Jumpsuit are absolutely perfect for rocking a Holiday Weekend. Most require very little fuss, make quite a statement,  and are usually very affordable! This fabness definitely met my monetary standards by being priced at a super cute  $16.99! Can I get a Gone Girl?


The pockets had me gone as you can probably tell from the above shots but I love it hands free as well.


Thanks for allowing me to share with you Labor Day Weekend Fit of the Day! What are your upcoming Holiday plans, yet more importantly, What are you Rocking?

Fab Luvin Fit of the Day!

 
Fabulites, Believe it or not I wasn't always the most comfortable one with my body but with age comes maturity. I can remember a time when all I wanted to do was cover it up, even though I always felt it was beautiful. Fast forward a couple years and I can barely keep my clothes on! It may not be be the best one around but at this stage in life I adore every single nook and cranny and you should too. With that being said lets' go ahead and jump into my Fab Luvin Fit of the Day!
 
 
I've been hearing all week how everyone is super ready for Fall, Unfortunately when you're a South Florida Girl, there is no Fall!. These dramatic temperatures will go way into the month of December for us so you might as well get used to seeing me in a sleeveless dress and sandals for  the remainder of the year and possibly then some! Don't cry for me Argentina!
 
 
Back to what I was originally speaking on. I absolutely love everything about this Belle +Sky Sleeveless Dress The color is amazing, length is appropriate,  the $8 price was amazing and I feel like such a put together lady when I'm wearing it! What could be better than that?
 
 
There was a time a couple years ago when I would have been afraid to wear this dress anywhere except for a night out with the Hubby or the Girls but trust me that mindset is now years behind me! You see sometimes when you have a curvy frame it can often be looked at as being overly sexualized wearing a body hugging dress. Is it appropriate to show off my curves when I'm out with the kids, at work, when I was trying to be professional I would think to myself but now that's all behind me!
 
 
Fast forward a couple years and today I'm rocking this dress to the office itself! Yes I have curves, Yes I'm a Mom, Yes I'm Professional, and Yes I'm Confident in this dress! Matter of fact I'm honestly considering heading back to JCPenney and picking up the other colors just like it! I will no longer attempt to hide my curves or be ashamed of them. I work hard as hell to have the ones I do and I'm going to Rock em from the Mountain Top for as long as I can and I hope you will join me in doing the same!

Thank you for allowing me to share with you my Fab Luvin Fit of the Day and as always Rock your Curves and whatever you're  Rockin Today?

Foodie Loving Fashionista with Alli!


This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and alli® weight loss aid. All opinions are mine alone. #alliInmylife #Before #CollectiveBias
 
For a majority of my adult life losing weight has been an issue for me. Add in being a mom of three, wife, full time employee, food loving business and brand builder, and things get that much more difficult! Seven years ago I gave in to my heart’s desires and started what you've come to know as the Frugal Flirty N Fab! This decision changed my life in more ways than one, bringing both my love for food and fashion to the forefront! For most, this combination simply cannot exist and it hasn't been an easy journey, but with trial and error, and the help of alli® weight loss aid, I've managed to maintain my weight. I now have the ability to try out a new restaurant during the day while being a fashion runway staple during the night and I can't wait to share with you my Top Tips on being a Foodie Loving Fashionista with alli® weight loss aid by my side!
 
 
For as long as I could remember I was always the athletic one and the one with the body most would kill for.  What happens when that's no longer the case, how do you deal? Are you still expected to rock that same girlish figure of your twenties long into your late thirties, early forties and beyond? I'm not sure if there's a correct answer to my question but what I can tell you is it's something I struggle with daily. Since the birth of my third child things have gotten progressively worst. It seems like I have been trying to lose the same old 10 lbs for the past 2 years now but today I'd like to share with you what I like to call one of my weight loss tools. You ready?


Tips on Maintaining and Obtaining your Weight Loss Goals!


  1. Water is your BFF! I know sometimes the thought of drinking water all day, everyday can be very overwhelming but the health benefits are simply amazing. Get in the habit of having at least 8 eight oz. glasses of water daily and watch the lbs. begin to melt away. I'm not saying you can't enjoy the occasional glass of wine but if its your overall goal to lose weight then water needs to be your friend along with alli® weight loss aid!
  2. Never buy clothes more than 2 sizes larger than what you are wearing now! Part of losing the battle of the bulge is increasing the size of your clothing without first combating the problem causing the weight gain. This tip has proven to be tried and true for me. Once I notice that I have increased at least 2 sizes then I know immediately it’s time to make a change. Because this is kind of my current situation this is why I have now made alli® weight loss aid part of my plan.
  3. Use alli® weight loss aid in conjunction with long term behavioral changes, such as eating right and exercising. By making the necessary changes to your daily lives and taking alli® weight loss aid, the only FDA-approved over the counter weight loss aid, you can boost your weight loss efforts* and make your goals that much more achievable! It works by blocking 25% of the fat you eat from being absorbed by your body. Because of its fat blocking properties, it can help you eat within a certain range of fat giving overweight women an edge to achieving a healthier version of themselves now and for always. alli® weight loss aid can be taken by overweight adults (BMI > 25) who are 18 years or older and should be used along with a reduced-calorie and low fat diet. alli® weight loss aid cannot be taken by those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.  One capsule per meal that includes no more that 15 grams of fat per meal, up to 3 times a day. Be sure to use with a well-balanced, reduced calorie, low fat diet and activity program. Take a multivitamin at bedtime when taking alli® weight loss aid, drink plenty of water throughout the day and make sure to download your alli® Brand Startup Guide for more details.

*alli® (orlistat 60 mg capsules) is for weight loss in overweight adults, 18 years and older, when used along with a reduced-calorie and low-fat diet. Follow label directions. Most people lose 5-10 pounds in 6 month period.

4.    Make sure to include a healthy lifestyle as part of your everyday activities. I have long been a runner and because of this I am most comfortable hitting the pavement for a run at least 3-4 times a week. The key to being success at maintaining an active lifestyle is to make sure you participate in activities that both you enjoy and that are beneficial. It's also a good idea to try to get the family involved as well. Activities such as bike riding, family walks, skating, dancing are perfect and can be easily added into your routine. There are also smaller steps that can be taken eventually adding to your overall calories loss and increase of energy such as taking the stairs at work and walking instead of riding when you can. Consult your doctor before beginning any exercise program.

5. Don't be afraid to listen to your body. Although the body knows what it can handle and what's needed, don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone to achieve said goals. Don't get complacent with the 30 minute runs or eating a salad every days for months because the body gets used to it and will begin to reject said efforts if not increased. One method that's worked for me is that every week I attempt to increase the distance I run by at least 1 lap or an additional 2 minutes of working out. You'll be amazed at exactly what the body can handle. Just don't be afraid to test it out! You got this.
 
 
6.While alli® weight loss aid blocks a portion of fat from being absorbed in the body, you still need to make sure you are eating a healthy diet consisting of lean meats, veggies, lots of greens, and fiber. Give yourself the best possible chance of being successful when it comes to healthy eating by planning your meals in advance, having healthy snacks on hand when needed, and making sure you are aware of calorie and fat content when eating out. If for some reason you fall off track, get right back on, and start right where you left out. It's important that this new healthier way of eating becomes part of your everyday lifestyle.
 
 
7. Know that you are enough no matter what size you are and rejoice in it. At 5'3 157 lbs by society's standards I am 11 lbs. overweight. Although no where near perfect I adore my body today as much as yesterday but that doesn't mean I won’t continue doing what is necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle and figuring out what works and doesn't work for me. It's like you've heard a time or two before. One size does not fit all and never will, but I just hope you'll stay tuned, better yet join me on this journey. I can't wait to update you shortly on my current results! Do I have what it takes with the help of alli® weight loss aid,to finally beat the battle of the bulge? Stay tuned to find out!

 
Let's use this as my before shot. This picture was taken just a week ago and I think it'll be the perfect example because this jumpsuit was so tight on me when I wore it that I was totally uncomfortable. Kinda felt like the pants could rip at any minute. Can't wait to see how I rock this look when I join you again. Will it be too large? Will it still be super snug? Or will the fit be picture perfect? Guess we'll have to wait and see. Wish me Luck, Excited!
