OOTD--Sassy Saturday 7/30/11




Happy SunDAY Yall,
I hope you all had a good weekend!

I have been wanting to post more Outfits of the Day, so here is my attempt. Recently I went to Unique thrift store in Silver Spring, Md and I found some great things for the end of summer and going into the Fall.

I thought that this outfit was a great example of what my mood t

his summer has been, Bright and Sassy! This summer i have been into cinched in waists with pants and skirts to accentuate the waistline, so I wanted to highlight that in this outfit. I have also been really into color blocking, so I thought that this was a good example of color blocking with some prints:)


Take a look at the pics and let me know what you think...

Fashionable Atlanta-1st Annual Blogger MeetUp!!

Hello All,

So on last Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending the 1st Annual Blogger Meetup with my 2 BFF's Ayesha and Khadijah! I had been looking forward to this event my whole trip, and lets just say I was more than excited to be in the presence of all the wonderful ATL bloggers.

This event was a chance for all of the Fashion/Makeup bloggers in the ATL area to meet, socialize, and most importantly--do what we know how to do--BASK IN OUR LOVE OF FASHION!

Since I came with my new Nikon D5000 in hand, I was able to take some great pics of the event and the wonderful people I met:)


I left feeling sooooo inspired, and want to do sooo much with my blog now.

Chek out the pics,

ATL Thrifting Adventures

Hi..my name is Shahidah and I'm addicted to Thrift stores!!

Lol..no but seriously, I have really been finding some good finds at thrift stores and since it was my good friend Khadijah's Bday on the 22nd, we decided to check out the ATL scene of thrift stores. So I did a quick search of area thrift stores and we were able to find a few..but we came to the conclusion that the ones we went to were more "consignment shops" and "vintage stores" because of the prices. They were definitely not my normal thriftin prices!!

Check out the pics...















The 3 we went to were:

1st-The Lucky Exchange, they have 2 locations, but we went to the one on Moreland..loved it!!

749 Moreland Avenue Suite 103-A

DIY:Sugar Scrub--Soft Lips

Hello All,

So as I said in my previous post, I was gonna highlight some pics from my ever so awesome trip to my hometown of ATL.

As I was chillin one day at the BFF'S house and her sis and I thought of making our own scrub for lips. Because its the summer and we all know we are wearin those bld and bright colors, we wanted to make sure that our lips were smooth and "crust free" lol when we wore them.

What you need:

*White sugar*
*Honey*

This is a very simple recipe that only takes minutes to make and do.

1. Make mixture and stir slightly
2. Take as much as you like and gently rub on your lips
3. Rub off with wet paper towel or washcloth

VOILAA..smooth lips afterwards..

Let me know how this works for you:)

Doing it myself,

Shahidah

My Journey.....

Hello All,

So I dont think that I have mentioned this before, but I am in the process of embarking on a very exciting journey in my life! This journey has been one that I have wanted to start for a long time, but have been prolonging. I am on my JOURNEY TO NATURAL HAIR!!

This is something that I am really excited about and one that is happening at the very wonderful time in my life. Over the past 4 months, I have had 4 different hairstyles. While I love change in my life, I reflected upon this and said to myself--Self, lol, why don't you do something that you've always wanted to do and reamin constant! This for me is very exciting and brings me joy to know that I will be FREE!! LOL

I have not had a perm since March 4th, so yesterday marked my 4th month without a perm!!

I want to document this process and let the blogosphere know about my journey. I am also very excited about trying out different products that will work for my hair and playing around with new styles.

Stay tuned for pics that are soon to arrive,

Almost NAtural,

SHahidah:)
