Peachy Dress

I think spring is such a fun time for fashion, especially if you are into hats, and girly dresses. Today I am sharing some peachy, soft, and pretty dresses like I am wearing here.

This is an older dress that I bought in the L.A. fashion district, but the necklace I am wearing was found at a thrift store and matches it so well!  Don't you love when that happens?

 The shoes were also found at a thrift store a different time, and the hat came from Roses, which is one of my favorite stores here in the south.

Blue Print Tank Top

I just love how crisp white leggings can look.  The problem is keeping them that way, though!

Does anyone else love wearing white, but have a hard time not getting it dirty in the first five minutes?  Something as simple as leaning over my trunk putting packages away, and new thing I know I have dirt across both legs, lol!  

I think I will be risking it and adding more white to my wardrobe this year!

FashionMia Spring Dresses

Today's post is about FashionMia.  FashionMia has so many cute dresses, skirt, tops, and more!

I'm going share a couple of their cute skater dresses.

The first one is a plain, simple, classic red dress:  I can see dressing this up, or down very easily.  It is also such a comfortable item, making it perfect for hot, sticky summer days like we have here in Virginia.

The second one is this pretty floral dress that is in the color of the season, lilac! This is such a pretty, feminine look for spring and summer.  I love how light, breezy and comfortable this dress looks.  I can see wearing this to church, lunch, shopping, etc.  It would be suitable for so many occasions.



Bell Sleeve Floral Printed Chiffon Skater Dress


Next up, I am sharing a couple of my favorite shift dresses.


The first shift dress I want to talk about is this white dress with black polka dots.  I recently bought Vaughan a white necktie with black polka dots, so it would look so adorable for us to match with me wearing this dress!  I really like polka dots, and he black and white version is just so classic!  This one also looks to breezy for warmer days.


Summer Tie Collar Polka Dot Chiffon Mini Shift Dress


The last dress I've chosen to discuss is this red, white and black plaid dress, because Vaughan loves plaid so much!  I also love how super-sized the plaid is!  The black, white and red plaid is another of my favorite plaid styles.  And throwing on a simple, knit dress like this one make getting dressed so easy!  That's one thing I love about dresses.  All you have to do is decide on accessories, and you are good to go!

Upbra Perfect T-Shirt Bra Review

 Hello, and happy Sunday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  

Today, I am sharing the perfect bra for the perfect cleavage!  It's the Upbra, and for this before-and-after photo set, I am wearing it in the T-Shirt bra version.   I decided to get mine in nude, because that way I'll be sure it goes with everything I wear.  

I just wish I had discovered this bra years ago!  There are lots of times I wish I had something that really gave lift, and cleavage, but with other bras, it usually was hard to get things to stay in place, and keep the dramatic effect.  

Pictured below, you can also see the convertible version of the Upbra, also in nude.
A nude, strapless bra is an absolute must for me in my wardrobe, so I'm very happy to find one that will also add some amazing cleavage to my outfits. 

Upbra has several features that make it special compared to most bras on the market, including  cleavage control straps that are adjustable, and a special grip support in the cups.

Upbra also has other bra style options, and swimwear!  I don't know about you, but I could especially use a cleavage enhancer built into my swimwear, because most swimwear seems to flatten my chest.

So, stop by Upbra, and see what they are all about!
Right now, you can use code GREENUPBRA10D to receive $10 off your order!

Pink Trench Coat

I really love the spring pastel colors in this outfit!  I am sharing a few simular pieces at the end of this post.

Yesterday, the removal of some dangerous trees in our yard was started.  Today, the professionals returned and finished the job.  We opted to remove the debris ourselves, so we have a lot of work ahead of us!  Our yard is a disaster zone now, but I am so happy to have it done!  Now each time the wind picks up, we will not have to worry as much about a tree or limbs falling!

SheIn Pink Sweater with Pearls

Today I am sharing this adorable pearl decorated sweater from sheIn.  It's the perfect piece for the cooler spring days like we are having here in Virginia.  I love the pearl accents that are all over the front, and the layered sleeves.   The fabric is soft, resists wrinkles, and it is light, but not too lightweight.

Unfortunately, this sweater comes in only one size, which seems to be a small, or smaller medium at most.  You can see my measurements here.   The price is great, this color is just $19.00!  It also comes in four other colors, which make the price differ a few dollars.

I can see wearing this the rest of the spring with so many different things in my wardrobe!  It would look great with white leggings as well.  And it would be extra girly and pretty with a nice skirt.

I am excited to start wearing my spring and summer clothing, how about you?

I still have a few pretty items that I am hoping to wear on the remaining cool days as well, though.

How to Wash Virgin Malaysian Hair Weave?

How to Wash Virgin Malaysian Hair Weave?

If you are a hair freak like we are, you would admit that at least once, you have looked at Virgin Malaysian hair weaves and thought wow!  These are so shiny they could replace the sun!
Well, that can't exactly happen, but yes Malaysian hair weaves are incredibly glistening! Not to mention that they are usually bouncy and retain their curl patterns even in adverse conditions.
Sadly, a lot of ladies still do not know that the rather open secret to keeping their virgin hair weaves as shiny as new is simply by washing them. That's it! If you want to use your weaves for as long as possible, just wash it! Think about it!

When your hair extensions cost a fortune, it is only right that you devote quality time taking care of it. So why do people choose not to do it? Because they fear they would do it wrong and ruin their expensive weaves.Contrary to popular misconception, washing virgin hair weave is as simple as reciting the letters of the alphabet.


In this blog post, we will walk you through the DIY process, and by the end of the following paragraphs, you will know just what to do with your Malaysian hair. Ready? Let's get started!
How to:

1.Part your hair into two sections at the middle from the front to the back and let the sections rest on your chest. Detangle your Malaysian hair gently with a paddle brush or wide toothed comb.

2.Starting close to the top of the weft where the tracks are, wet your hair in a downward motion with warm water. You can do this in the shower, sink or bathtub with a bowl of water depending on what ever location is comfortable for you. Here, you need to be careful as you would not want to soak the tracks under your weave.

3.Once you are satisfied with the wetness of your weave, apply a small amount of moisturizing shampoo and wash gently working your way down. This is to remove initial dirt and excess oil. Trying to wash your hair at the stage, you will discover that your virgin hair weave would be difficult to lather. This does not have to get you in panic mode. This is totally normal. Rinse and repeat the process until the water runs clear.

4.Apply your conditioner: We would recommend pure conditioners (Conditioners with natural ingredients) Leave your conditioner in to saturate for at least 15 minutes and rinse your hair. If you do not feel comfortable about your rinsing your conditioner off, it is totally fine if you want to wash it in for a bit. Whatever you do, be certain to rinse thoroughly after each step of washing to prevent product build up.

5.Finally, between air drying your hair and sitting under a dryer, the choice is yours. It makes no difference. Before drying, apply your leave in conditioner or any natural hair oil of your preference for better moisturizing and an ultimate shine. It is very important to let the tracks of your hair get dried before you step out or before you retire to bed. Reason being, it could give you that not-so-cool awful smell of a septic.

Conclusion:
Take note, the use of a downward motion when it had to do with wetting and applying and washing was incessant. It is imperative that you do all these in a downward motion because if you get your tracks too damp, your mode of installation especially if it is glued in, would start giving way and this could pose a problem.
To ensure that your Malaysian hair never loses its characteristic shine, it is recommended that you wash them every ten days. Washing them daily or once in two months is the best way to say good bye to them!

Everthing I am wearing, except the shoes, was thrited.    I did not find the skirt and top at the same time, but the blue flowers in the print of the top actually match the blue skirt!  I love it when things like that happen!

It's such a pretty shade of blue, too; perfect for spring and summer.

PrAna Fedora and Dress

For today's post I am sharing two items from the sustainable brand, PrAna, that uses 100% organic cotton!

The first item is my "mocha bisque" Cybil knit fedora, which also comes in cargo green, coal, and light suede.   This hat is the perfect summer vacation hat!  The construction feels durable, and the fabric feels great, as well.  It seems like it will be easy to pack, while maintaining its shape, because after I have fold or squeeze it, it jumps right back into shape as soon as I unfold/release it! 

That hat comes in only one size, which is a 0/S, and I have a rather large head.  The good thing is that is still fits me very well!

I love the bright, beautiful colors on the band, as well.  I know this hat will go with many of my summer clothing items, but I can also see wearing this into the early fall, because of its "rusty" orange color.

Next up, I am wearing the wrinkle-free Cantine dress with PrAna's "Blue Graceful" print.  It comes in seven other colors/prints. I am wearing a Size Small.  The dress comes with a built-in shelf bra, and removable padding.  This is the perfect little vacation dress! The thing I like the most about this dress is how well it resists wrinkles!  That is a must for travel wear!

Right now, you can use code GGLG18 to receive 15% off your prAna purchase when you buy online and enter your code at checkout, at PrAna!
