Fab Family Does the Wynwood Walls!

Hello Fabulites, How's everyone doing? I work so hard throughout the week so that when the weekends roll around I can take a little break from my daily doings and simply enjoy my family and my community. Part of enjoying and getting to know my community means branching out to different places and learning and teaching my kids all about them. That's exactly what happened a couple weekends ago as I introduced my boys FabJr, and BabyFab
 to Wynwood Walls, Take a look!

 
For those of you who might be unfamiliar, Wynwood Walls is a large area of warehouses and buildings showcasing some of America's finest street and graffiti art. The area was created in an effort to revitalize the community and  to create a center where people could gravitate to and explore, and to develop the area's pedestrian potential, and has done just that!
 
 
Since its inception, the Wynwood Walls program has seen over 50 artists representing 16 countries and have covered over 80,000 square feet of walls, and is a must see when visiting South Florida. As you can see BabyFab took it all in mainly on my hip! Clearly like the walls, He's a work in progress!

 
After getting used to his surroundings a little BabyFab really began to get into the artwork. Can we all jus take a minute and get into his cute little palm tree shorts? Fab indeed right, or should I say Just fly!
 
Mommy getting in on the action while BabyFab watches in adornment. He loves it when I act silly. Or maybe he's in full adornment of the beautiful artwork. I'd like to think it was me!

 
I greatly enjoyed exploring the beautiful artwork with my boys and best of all explaining to them that art comes in many different shapes and forms. FabJr. who happens to be quite the artist mentioned that one day we just might see his own personal drawings being showcased at Wynwood Walls. As a mommy hearing that I knew it meant mission accomplished!



 
Thanks for allowing me to share my family outing and the beauty of South Floridas own Wynwood Walls with you. I hope you enjoyed it and as always add it to your must stop destination your next time visiting! Just in case you were worried about seeing the same designs on each visit rest assured that will never be the case. Art is ever-changing and thankfully so are the Wynwood Walls.
 
Have you ever visited the Wynwood Walls?  Do you have something similar where you live? If so please share it with the Frugal Flirty N Fab! For additional information on the Wynwood Walls please visit http://thewynwoodwalls.com/

BabyFab and my #FormulaForHappiness

 
Where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday I was laying eyes on BabyFab for the very first time and already he's 19month! Thanks to Gerber® Good Start® Gentle Formula I now have the chance to reflect on my #formulaforhappiness and the things that made the biggest difference in my life during BabyFab's first few months of life. Please follow along as I do just that!
https://ooh.li/6d5627e
 It required quite the adjustment once I brought my little bundle of joy home from the hospital. It had been nearly 12 years since there was a baby in the house so adjustment is a bit of a understatement. Somehow, someway we were all very busy living our separate lives but BabyFab changed all that right away! As a family he brought us all together and quickly showed us all what the true #FormulaForHappiness was really all about.
 
https://ooh.li/6d5627e
 
The first few weeks home from the hospital were some of my most memorable ones. My life consisted around watching him sleep, hearing his little cries for food or the never ending diaper changes. And I'm positive I'll never forget the sounds of his baby burps after feedings or the joys of seeing him smile in his sleep for the very first time. Dreamy! Some of the best advice I received during that time was to make sure I was getting enough sleep while the baby was sleeping and trust and believe I took full advantage of that and hopefully you will too!
https://ooh.li/6d5627e
Gerber® Good Start® Gentle believes that the Formula for Happiness™ can be a lot of things, and moms have different ways of enjoying the journey through motherhood.

A Better Me with Nature Valley Simple Nut Bars!

   Nature Valley Simple Nut Bars #SimpleSnacking
FABulites, This morning I woke up, sat my scale by the trash, and vowed from now on to be the best version of myself I can be and I'm going to show you how Nature Valley Simple Nut Bar products are going to help me do it!

https://ooh.li/9670e7e
 
Let me just start at the beginning. It started when I attempted to put on my black jumper that i'd only worn one other time which was on my birthday April 8th. To my surprise this time when I attempted to wear it the jumper was so tight and unflattering on me that I could barely get it zipped! Did my jumper shrink, is someone playing a mean prank on me, what was stopping it from fitting the way it had once fit before? The answer  was me!I was the reason for this fashion disturbance but I'm not going down without a fight. I'm giving myself a full month of healthy eating, Nature Valley Simple Nut Bars and moderate exercise to show my jumper who's boss! Are you with me? 
 
https://ooh.li/9670e7e
 
Nature Valley Simple Nut Bars come in two flavors, Almond Cashew Sea Salt and Roasted Peanut and Honey and can be found at your nearest Publix. I chose Nature Valley Simple Nut Bars to assist me on my journey because I spend lots of time on they go and they're the perfect go to snack. That won't have to worry about over indulging on bad snacks. They are also perfect for the times when healthy dining options aren't available. Pull out a Simple Nut Butter Bar in either flavor and chow down until healthier food options are available. Best of all this simple snack is made of just 7 ingredient, can't get any more simple than that! With my exercising, healthy snacking, and day in and out dealings with BabyFab and FabJr.,  I'm positive I'll be back in my jumper in no time at all!

Travel Tips to Last a Lifetime with Walmart Family Mobile!


  
  #Tips4Trips #CollectiveBias


FABulites,  Picture the Possibilities! It's time again to plan and orchestrate the Family's Summer Travel Trip complete with lasting memories and awesome experiences embedded in your brain to last a lifetime! Fun Right! Well today I'm giving you my top 5 Frugal Travel Tips and showing you how Walmart Family Mobile can help you achieve it! Ready? Let's Begin!

 We've all heard the saying, Time is of the essence and Time waits for no one but when it comes to spending quality time with your family, what if anything does that really mean? It simply means when the opportunity presents itself, and you have things like Walmart Family Mobile on your side, you figure out how you can achieve the trip of your dreams! Do your best to never allow the opportunity to spend time with your family pass you by no matter how costly it might appear in the beginning.  In the world of the Frugal Flirty N Fab, all things are negotiable and My Fab Five Tips for Family Travel will show you how and why! Let's Get Started!
 
 
 
1. Search for a Package Deal!- The biggest honor you can present yourself with when planning a family trip is to search for a package deal. The ideal would be finding one which covers air fare, hotel, and possibly transportation at a set price. If that's not possible try making sure at least airfare and transportation is included. You'll save big bucks in doing so! If you have to pay for your air fare separately then make sure to try to book travel on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursdays. Flights are cheaper on those days. It's also cheaper to search out public forms of transportation instead of having to rent.
2. Consider Traveling with a Group! The group rate will nearly always be provided at a cheaper rate and possibly have benefits come along with it that are not possible to nab while traveling solo. You might also want to consider traveling during off peak times and seasons for additional discounts.
3. Plan your Meals! The best thing you could possible do for yourself and your family if you're interested in saving some funds in try to stay in a Villa or something that provides a stove and a refrigerator. That way you can possible cook both breakfast and dinner and prepare sandwiches for lunch without having to worry about paying for expensive meals. If you select and apartment or home rental instead of an hotel you can definitely cut back on food costs. Food is always extra costly when traveling and just maybe you can use those funds toward a special family time activity.
4. Don't be afraid to clip a coupon! You'll never know what type of deals and saving could  be right at your fingertips. Always make sure to  look for family activity discounts. who knows when you'll get a 90% off coupon for sky diving! Talk about a memorable family trip right!
5. Travel With Reliable Communication! My number 5 tips is definitely one of my favorites and its make sure you travel with an affordable, reliable phone and phone plan such as Walmart's Family Mobile Plan! This particular plan if perfect for both having at home and for traveling. Walmart Family Mobile can be purchased at any participating Walmart and it takes just minutes to visit your nearest Walmart, locate the Family Mobile section,  and get connected. For our upcoming family trip we'll be traveling with the Alcatel One Touch Pop Astro which comes complete with 4G LTE Data and Unlimited Talk and text! You can't beat that right! And if you're into taking pictures and capturing those special memories as much as I am then you'll definitely enjoy the 5MP Camera that comes with it! No matter how you look at it, Walmart Family Mobile is a must!



Thanks for allowing me to share my best Family Travel Tips and ways to save with Walmart Family Mobile with you today. I hope you enjoyed and I look forward to seeing all those wonderful family vacation photos! Where are you and your family planning on traveling this Summer? Will Walmart Family Mobile be a part of it?

Soul Food Saturday!

Happy Monday FABulites! Hope everyone had an inspiring weekend, I most certainly did! Saturday I managed to do something I haven't done in almost 2 years. I left the kids with the Hubby and spent an entire day focusing on growing and feeding the Frugal Flirty N Fab. I even managed to catch the CDFA swimwear show at the W Hotel as part of SwimWeek Miami which of course was absolutely amazing!
First thing Saturday morning  I headed to Florida International University for Florida Social Con and I couldn't believe the wealth of knowledge that was in the building!  We discussed why social videos are so important and how Periscope and Meerkat can be beneficial to your Brand.


 
I left feeling inspired beyond belief and super thankful to my BLM Sister Michelle Talbert of Her Power Hustle for inviting me!
 
Almost immediately following Florida Social Con it was off to the W Hotel for SwimWeek Miami's CFDA Fashion Show. Here's a little snippet from what I wore and also the models final walk of the CFDA show
 
  Picked up this little Cutie at H&M for a Steal of only $15! If you're a follower of the Frugal Flirty N Fab then you already know Looking Good should never cost a Fortune!
 
 
It was grown and sexy and everything I needed it to be considering it's been well over 2 years since I last attended a Fashion Week Swim Event. Just like that I was at home and basking In the glow of my element. It was as though I hadn't skipped a beat! Saturday's events were food for my Mind, Body, and Soul and I'm just happy I was able to spend my day the way I did, Being Inspired!
 
Thanks for allowing me to share my Awesome day with each of you but before you go share with the Frugal Flirty N Fab, How you spent your Saturday?

Fab's Shoptiques Most Wanted!

Happy Monday Luvs, Hope everyone enjoyed a FABtabulous weekend. I most certainly did. Saturday I went to the movies with the fam and watched Magic Mike and Terminator 3. Who am I kidding, I really watched nothing because I was too busy chasing BabyFab all around the theatre! Ha! Sunday I spent some time in this cute getup enjoying my family at the beach! Weekends were made for having a good time and I make it a point to do just that! When I wasn't living La Vida Loca with the fam, I was trying to visually prepare myself for a couple fashion inspired events I have coming up and like always, Shoptiques proved to be my one stop shop cause the possibilities are endless!
I've been dreaming about denim culottes for weeks, kinda feeling swimwear since my Pinup Fit I rocked yesterday, and simply because anytime is a good time in my book to rock a fab dress, cute top and jumper of all jumpers, these looks are my current Most Wanted. I have no other way of explaining it. Notice the cute prices right! What's the use of wearing a great fit if you have no money in your pockets?

Thrill of eBay Must Have Daily Summer Deals!

 
Fabulites, If there's one thing you know about the Frugal Flirty N Fab it's that I Live for a good deal, But how many of you knew I was low key obsessed with eBay's Daily Deals? Here's why!
 
Daily eBay features items from their trusted sellers who are offering unusually deep discounts ( between 20% and 90% off) and free shipping. The only catch is that they have limited quantities of these fixed-price items, and at these great prices, they won't last long. Yep, Sadly Once they're gone, they're gone!
These featured deals are updated at least once a day starting at 8 a.m. Pacific Time. And when they sell out of items during the day, they replace them with brand new deals. On newer deals you'll see a message that says something like "Added 2 hours ago" to let you know it's a fresh offer. Is this amazing or what? Deals on top of Deals Daily! Now do you get an idea of exactly why I'm obsessed! Without further adieu, Let's take a look at my top 5 eBay Wishlist Items!
