the perfect $25 coverup


staying positive

Did anyone else feel like last week was five days of Mondays? I couldn't catch up for the life of me and each day I felt like I got more and more bogged down. That's why I only managed to log one post over here. It was just one of those weeks.

Last week, the bottom dropped out for me. Throughout quarantine and everything associated with COVID, I've tried to stay positive and look at the bright side.  At work, we were lucky enough to secure a PPP loan and that really helped with my outlook on things. But last week, things bottomed out. We're feeling the economic effects of this whole situation and it has been the hardest thing I've dealt with from a professional standpoint. Lemonade will be fine and make it through this whole thing but it's not all rainbows and unicorns. We are legitimately making lemonade out of lemons as we speak. Send sugar.


keeping calm and sane in the Q with Bluegrass Hemp Oil

Let's talk about CBD. Have you jumped on the bandwagon yet? If not, it's time you gave it a try. Especially in these Corona times. It has been a God send in helping me maintain sanity and my cool when surrounded by the kids 24/7. There's only so many fights and snack requests and messes you can handle before you lose it, you know? Adding a more consistent CBD routine has been key to making sure I don't totally fly off the handle.

That on top of the current state of the world is enough to have us all on edge.


My Favorite Swimwear Brands + Suits

The photo below was taken on February 20 which seems like 37 years ago at this point. But since it's apparently summer now and pools are opening again soon, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite swim suit brands. Especially since a couple people DM'ed me saying they're going on vacation soon and need some inspo after being cooped up for what seems like an eternity.

The good news too is that lots of swimwear is on sale.

All Dressed Up With No Where to Go – Target x Lisa Marie Fernandez Collection


The Perfect Basic Tee

I am a creature of habit.

As much as I love trying new things and venturing outside of my comfort zone, I thrive in routine and love when I find something that fits perfectly into it. One thing I've done in the last year to create more of a routine, is simplifying my closet. Honestly, the amount of black and white surprises me sometimes since I really do love color. But it's become easier to stick with the basics when I need to get going quickly.


California Chic Comes to Louisville – A Look Inside POSH HOME

One thing I really wanted to do after redesigning the site was share more Louisville-focused content and do more features on businesses and shops. This includes featuring more local Black creatives and small businesses. I stopped by Philly's Best Frozen Desserts over the weekend, so stay tuned for a glowing review on their treats soon. If you're a Black small-business owner or restauranteur or know of one I need to check out, drop me a note. I'm going to start working my way through the list I found on Louisville Scoop but I know that's not comprehensive and new spots are popping up all the time.

Until then (and it's coming soon), today's feature is a couple weeks overdue. I popped into this new boutique late last month and am just now getting around to sharing it over here.

When the gals at POSH HOME reached out to me originally, it was right before COVID shut down everything. So it was only fitting that it was one of my first stops once retail was able to reopen its doors.
