MELANIN POPPIN |Fall Edition | Cabin with Friends

Hello Passionista-

This weekend I took a much needed trip to the cabin with my college friends. We’ve been to Ellajay and Helen so many times that we wanted to try somewhere different. So, this year we went to Gatlinburg, TN. We take this trip every year and every year we make so many memories and build stronger bonds with one another. I’m so happy to have friends like them. The Smokey mountains were good to us. We stayed in a nice big three story cabin with a wrap around porch, hot tube, movie room

Of course we took a ton of photos…

Black Panther Party Group Costume | Halloween 2018

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!

As a kid, I never really got to dress up for Halloween. So now, I love to get dressed up for Halloween and luckily so does my friends. Halloween is one of my besties favorite holiday, so I have to dress up no matter if I like it or not … lol

For the past 3 years, my sister gals and I have did group costumes. As hard as it is to get 6 girls with different preferences on one accord to decide on one idea that everyone likes, the finish product and the good time we have is always worth it.

Year 1 we managed to achieve ” The Royal Flush” – DIY costumes made by me.

Year 2 we quickly put together “The Purge Trio“- DIY costumes put together by me.

 

 

 

This year, we pulled off the ” Black Panther Party” costumes put together by all of us.

Honestly, this group costume was the easiest to put together. Everyone picked an all black outfit to fit there personal style and comfort level – because its was cold. We all purchases black gloves, black berets, and black sunglasses.

My entire outfit is from Forever 21, but it was all stuff I already had in my closet (off shoulder sweater, Black ripped jeans, and booties).

Black Sunglasses from the Dollar Tree

Black Beret from Target ($12.99)

Black Gloves from Amazon ($7.99)

We hit the town for a fun night of loud music, dancing and eating sweet treats. I swear I had to much candy and cupcakes for comfort.

I think we nailed the look, what you think?

Brunch with Friends

Helllloooooo !!!!

I know I’ve been missing for two days of blogmas. I’ve been busy with orders and shopping…🤷🏽‍♀️

But, I’m back now !!!!! 😍

I recently hosted a Christmas PJs Brunch with all my girlfriends. It was super nice! But of course – as the host, I did not get any pictures. What I can say is— we had a good time.

I cooked a really nice brunch. I made lots of mimiosas and we drank lots of mimiosas!

We played “dirty santa” and cards against humanity… so many laughs and memories made…

I did manage to get a few snaps with my polaroid camera for my next scrapbook..

Until next time 💝

Halloween 2017: Group Costume

Hello Passionistas and Happy November!!!!

We are getting to my favorite time of year. I love November, December, January and February months. But any whoo- this blog is all about Halloween.

This Halloween I did a group costume with a few of my friends. We decided to PURGE!!!!

img_9418Honestly, these costumes were thought of last minute and put together every quickly and easy.

We purchase over-sized white ti-shirts and Halloween blood from Walmart. I made rips and whole in the shirts, adding blood splatter for a visual affect. We wore the shirt with black legging (that we already had).

We purchased the mask, flag bandannas,  and plastic weapons from party city- for less than $20.00

Remember the Time

Hey Girls,

I love birthdays and planning events. It is truly one of my passions. This year me and my friends all turn 25. Many don’t consider this a milestone birthday, but I do. I mean I thought my teenage years were strange. Well being in your 20’s is an emotionally roller coaster. And you need a support system and strong well to keep you pushing through. My friends and I have been through a lot and have accomplished so much together and individually. So I came up with the great idea for us to plan each other’s 25th birthday celebration. I’m creative one in the group so I’ve been leading this mission (plus it was my idea).

IMG_0002 Last month I planned a birthday event for one of my girls. We all got together for brunch and wine tasting. It was really nice! The day was filled with good conversations, laughs and cries, great wine and most importantly friendship. To end the day, I wanted to leave the girls with something special to “Remember the Time”. So I came up with this idea to make picture frames, as party favors.

I took a visit to Michael’s craft store to pick up some acrylic paint, glitter, modge podge, and wooden picture frames (one larger than the other). I used the color blue because that’s the birthday girl’s favorite color. First, I took the larger frame and painted it completely blue. Next, I coated the smaller frame with modge podge and sprinkled silver glitter all over it. Then, I let both frames lay flat on a sheet of newspaper to dry over night. The next day, I used a hot glue gun (and glue gun sticks) to glue the smaller frame on top of the larger frame to make this masterpiece (pictured on left).

This made the day even more special. We all took pictures with the birthday girl and everyone got a Frame Party Favor to “Remember the Time”.

Try it for your next event and let me know how it turns out, See you Friday!IMG_0015
