BLK X GRY


My newfound lifestyle of minimalism has changed me in many ways.  I've gotten rid of a lot of unnecessary items and I avoid purchasing things that won't fit in effortlessly with the wardrobe that I currently have. The entire process of minimalist living has taught me not to over consume but to buy each piece with discretion.  I believe that creating a capsule wardrobe is important; you may notice that my looks have become gray-scale.  As a previous sucker for all things bright, I've realized how I'd missed out on the beauty of the classic hues of black, white & gray.

My shoe selection is pretty minimal as well, keeping my same hue scheme for the most part but adding nudes and blush colors for a pop of color.  *It really is humorous that I'm considering blush colored shoes a pop of color!*  These classic cut ankle boots from DSW have become my favorite;  I've worn them with tunic dresses and I've even paired them with sweatpants!  I crave versatility in the pieces that I own.  Getting ready in the morning is so easy because everything has harmony and can be layered differently to create a whole new look!  I've raved about just how much I love DSW and the way they treat their customers, I believe it makes their shoes even better!







My little guy, Carter wanted to say hi!

#BrosiaEATS: DINNER // Zucchini Spaghetti


My taste buds were set on Zucchini Spaghetti tonight-- in fact, my taste buds have craved the dish for the past several weeks.  In 2015 my goal is to refrain from eating out often.  Last year I ate out 4-5 times a week, some weeks were better than others.  It is way too often that I go out to eat and am totally not pleased with my meal, wishing I'd stayed home and made something myself.  I am tired of wasting calories on ill food.

I went out and purchased a Veggetti today I've had my eye on it for a few weeks and I'm pretty certain this is like, one of the best purchases that I've made this month!  Satisfying my cravings, Zucchini Spaghetti for dinner tonight, tomorrow night and maybe even the night after, ha!

#BrosiaEATS: LUNCH



I'm doing my best to always make getter decisions on meal choices,  avoiding the drive-thru lines and keeping far away from the microwave.  I moved during the first week of the year and my new house didn't come equipped with a microwave, so I'm going with it.  I'm all about the stove, oven and cold meals at this point! 

For lunch today I had Swai, seasoned with lemon, pepper and topped off with parsley flakes.  Along side of the fish I had quinoa-- I really enjoy the mixed quinoa packages available at Target, I've mentioned them in the past and have round this particular mix to be my favorite-- it includes spinach, tomatoes and delicious feta cheese. So yummy!  I washed it all down with a refreshing cup of sweet tea.

CONCEALING DISCOLORED KNEES & ELBOWS


Every now and then I feel the need to pull of that "perfect skin" look and I've hunted for a body concealer that would not rub off, had no shimmer and most of all a concealer that actually matched my skin tone.  I find that with products in stores today, they don't really cater to darker skin tones.

Genius Beauty's Nubian Skin Perfecter is available in a number of shades:

Creme brûlée for light skin tones
hazelnut for redder tones
mocha for warm brown skin tones
dark chocolate for the deepest dark skin tones

Check out my video for an actual demonstration on how the concealer is applied:

90'S ESQUE




Boot season in Arizona is a little different, it calls for days that allow you to wear over the calf boots paired with light weight slip dresses and maybe a cozy throw jacket for later in the day when the temps drop.  I recall one particular week this winter where it actually felt like a winter--  The week us Arizonians freaked out because we got an incredible amount of snow in the valley and all stores were sold out of heaters!  I am happy to say that those days are over and fortunately for us, temps have not exactly gone up to the typical desert heat that we usually dread -HOORAY- boot season stays!


It has been a while since I've last worn heeled boots, I almost forgot how much I love them.  These are from DSW. There are so many fabulous boot trends that can be found at DSW right now; the selections are incredible!  Each time I visit DSW it truly comes with an experience.  As soon as you walk in you're greeted, the associates are knowledgeable about what is in store and what they haven't received just yet-- they always have an answer to my many questions but my favorite is the checkout process.  The checkout process is the overall deciding factor of how much you're going to enjoy your purchase.  Have you ever left a store not feeling 100% about your purchase?  You were sold on the product but maybe you weren't totally treated as you thought you should have been-- I always have good conversations about style with the associates at DSW and leave feeling like I just got the steal of the decade  *skips out of door*! My in store experiences make me love DSW even more.
