Award Season 2017

It’s finally here again!

Yup, you guessed it – AWARD SHOW SEASON!!

As we eagerly anticipate the excitement of tonight’s 74th Golden Globe awards hosted by latenight funny guy Jimmy Fallon, I thought it only fitting to start the season off right with a small taste of some of the stylish notables I will be waiting for later on with baited breath.

But enough chit chat, here’s a sneak peek at some pre-party looks.

#FBF – A Look Back

It’s officially the last Friday of the year guys and honestly, I can’t help being just a little nostalgic.

This has been one of the most amazing years ever. I have had some of the greatest opportunities of a lifetime, personally and professionally and especially so with the blog.

Looking back at my memories from this year, I was really having trouble deciding what I wanted to share with you all because there were just too many awesome moments to choose from. So while I sit here flipping through more of these moments, here are just some of my favorites.

Getting Rooted

It is often said that a tree without roots, does not grow and so is the same for a people who do not know – correction – do not accept and understand their history… and in turn, themselves.

Therefore when it was first announced that there would a Smithsonian Museum dedicated to African American history and culture I was beyond excited. I was even more ecstatic when then President Obama finally declared the museum open this past September. Hence it should come as no surprise that the hubby and I made our way back to the Capitol to partake in this piece of history.

Critics Choice Awards

So I know I’ve been gone for a while but I promise you it’s not because I’m done with the blog. There’s tons of great stuff in the works and I kid you not it will be so worth the wait.

In the mean time though I know there’s been a lot going on and as we wind down the year we can always indulge all the fashion inspo we can get. Am I right, or what?

This past Sunday was yet another fashionable night in Hollywood as the 22nd Critics Choice Awards were underway.

The Critics’ Choice wards are the time of year when your faves from movies and television get their chance to shine and be honored by the only other voices greater than our own – the critics.

An evening with Abercrombie Fitch x Elle Magazine

This past week I had the pleasure of attending an event hosted by Abercrombie & Fitch Elle Magazine and featured blogger Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge.

Held at the brand’s flagship Fifth Avenue location, the event was super exclusive with a guest list that comprised of models, bloggers, fashion fans and bigwigs alike. Guests were checked in at the door and then ushered into the store which was closed to the public for the evening’s festivities, and to the second floor where the main event was taking place, although guests were free to shop the entire store for more amazing finds.

“Spring Cleaning”

Despite not having much of a spring season this year I have still made the conscious effort to part-take in the usual “spring cleaning”.

This year my “Spring cleaning” list is super loooong.

Not only am I clearing out my closet but I’m also opening up so mental real estate. I’m working on letting go of things that are no longer benefiting me on this journey I’ve been recently embarking on – one that has set me on a trajectory to fulfillment and happiness.

And while there are lots of adjustments to make and lessons to learn, I am wholeheartedly embracing every single experience, taking notes and smiling (genuinely, I might add) through it. But enough about my spiritual journey, it’s time to work through the piles of clothes in my own closet! Yikes!

Quality Time

First off let me start by wishing all the dads a Happy Father’s Day! I hope you all get to enjoy your day as much as all the mamas did!

A few weeks ago the hubby and I managed to fit some quality time into our busy schedules and decided to take a nice little stroll through our neighborhood and probably take a trip to the zoo.

We also thought it would be a great time to work on shooting as the weather was fairly nice.

Tony Awards 2016

In a special #FBF I wanted to take the time to share a recap of this year’s Tony Awards.

This past Sunday the Tony Awards gave a spectacular close to the 2016 Award season. Not only did the guests and honorees turn out in the numbers- and finely clad I might add – but the evening proved one for the history books.
