Weekend Vibes: Sexy Vintage Maxi Dress + Hat + Sandals

Hi loves! Happy first of May! Today was a easy and breezy day. We had a Cinco De Mayo party here at my condo, I couldn't eat any of the food due to gluten cross contamination, but I had fun. This is probably one of my favorite maxi dresses of all time, I love the little cut out on the front as well as how flowy it is. I am glad I kept it all this time because as we know in fashion what is old will become new again. I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!

Boho Chic: Faux Suede A Line Skirt + Gauze Top + Cute Sandals

Hi loves! Happy Saturday! Today I wore this cute outfit to Riverfest as well as the Mac & Cheese Throw Down. I couldn't eat any of it, but it smelled amazing. Boho styling is one of my favorites because you can be free, flowy, and comfortable; while looking cute at the same time. As usual, I love being downtown in the city and I was loving the views. I hope you all enjoy the pictures! This is the Hillsborough River in which Riverwalk runs parallel to it at 1.8 miles. This area is great for parties as as well as festivals and working out.

Date Night in the City: Sexy Twosie

Tonight I am featuring a two piece set from Fabletics. They usually make work out clothes or "clothes to live in", but now they are expanding to skirts and swimwear. Although this is a two piece set it is still made of the same high compression sweat wicking fabric as their athletic wear.

*Twists were in 21 days, I decided to take them out early since I have SD and I didn't want to scratch my scalp and break of my hair. I will wear this twist out for the duration totaling 30 days.

April City Life Vlog: Who do You Think You Are

Hi loves! This month was a month of adventure! I decided to finally pay for a DNA kit from on St. Patricks day because it was 10 % off. I delved into my family tree and history and the more I found the more I couldn't stop. I would have loved to film this, but for me, it was a rather personal experience; so I decided to vlog what I was comfortable with via photos.

On my own I was able to trace my ancestors back to the early 1800's to two specific plantations and 4 cities. At this point, I just couldn't stop there so I paid for the DNA test and then started planning my trip to the Kingsley Plantation in March. I had an amazing time and I am so glad that I went there despite being apprehensive because I am an empath. I also go to visit historic St. Augustine, which I have never been in my life as a Floridian. I pretty much did as much research as I could to find gluten free restaurants in Jacksonville and St. Augustine because I can't take anymore chances at getting glutened after the last year I have had. I am really happy to say all of the restaurants stood up to my personal (health) standards for gluten requirements.

This months project has truly been a moving one! I am still 3 to 5 weeks out from my DNA test results, however, I think I know a little of what to expect now.

Food and diet: I pretty much ate fish all month even while on vacation. I tried a lot of new recipes and I added some of them to the bottom of this post. It was too many to add on one blog post so I will post more next month.
