“You Only Live Once”~Clay Adventures

image

I believe that since you only live once, live life to the fullest.  That’s what I do! Yesterday 3 friends and I went ceramic making in El Cerrito, CA. It was one of my friends birthday and she has always wanted to go clay making like in the movie Ghost, to bad it was all ladies (LoL).  The place we went to is called Play with Clay.

This was my first time doing an ceramic class and who  knew it would be a 3 step process to make my creation. First you make whatever you want out of clay and decorate it. Then 3 weeks later you come back to glaze it and you come back a week later to pick it up. It’s a long process,  but I know it’s worth it. Our class was 3 hours long,  which is enough time to make 2 to 3 clay creations. I decided to make 2, an ice cream bowl and a cup.

Here are 5 things you should know before jumping right into a clay making class.
1. Wear something that is comfortable and you don’t care if it gets dirty.
2. Go at a time where your nails aren’t done. The clay gets all in your nails and is really messy.
3. Go with a group of friends! Our instructor said 4 is the perfect number because she can easily help everyone.
4. Get some ideas of what you want to make before hand. I knew I wanted to make a ice cream bowl.
5. Make sure you wear a head scarf, hat, or tie your hair up. The clay gets messy.

Have a great day!  I had so much fun, let me know if you ever go. Here’s some pictures from yesterday.

“CURVES AND STRIPES”~INSPIRED

20131215_153301I was inspired by one of the Style Bloggers that I follow to recreate her stylish Black and White Striped outfit. I really love that fact that “InmyJoi” shows off her curves with her tight skirt and mixed print striped shirt. When I saw this stylish outfit, I had to recreate it! I found my entire outfit on Black Friday by accident; I was shopping with my friends. When I walked in Torrid the skirt was calling my name, but I was mad that I couldn’t find a top right away. Since I was determined, I found a similar top to “InmyJoi” from Lane Bryant. To get the full look I decided to get a size smaller in the top, so it could fit tighter, but the skirt is true to size.

Remember that curvaceous and plus size women are dime pieces who are top of the line and nothing less, always, 2 SNAPS TO THAT!

Feature~ “Naeemah the DIVA”

IMG_20131027_171459
Happy Sunday,

My friend Naeemah always gives me life every time I see her outfits. She is fierce and a diva. Naeemah carries confidence wherever she goes and always spreads “joyful blessings”, which she always says at the end of a conversation. Naeemah’s calm, cool and collective spirit inspires me to do more in the world. She always knows how to word things and encourages others. She is known for her eclectic style and can wrap a turban like no one else I know. I love her passion and determination. Most importantly she does her and doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. I love how she puts together different outfits and makes them pop out with a turban and her accessories.

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING

This is my first pair of leather leggings and I had no clue what top was going to go with it. But when I saw this beautiful black strapless peplum top, I knew that it was a match. I like to shop by buying separate pieces and coordinating the outfit together later. I felt beautiful and powerful in this outfit. I hope you like it!
