Happy hump day everyone! I’m so sorry for my absence. I’ve been out of town for a few days and I needed to take some time away from social media to focus on other areas of life. I’m sure you all know how that goes. Well let’s jump right into today’s post, my first guest post of the year. I’d like for you all to meet the fabulous Deidre, she is the owner of a hot fashion blog called Frugal Flirty N Fab and she’s a BLM sista!
I love Deidre’s smile, it can brighten any cloudy day and she’s super stylish. She writes, “ I’ve been blogging a little over 3 years and It’s been some of the best years I’ve had.” She goes on to say, ” I started the Frugal Flirty N Fab because I wanted to see more of a variety when it comes to seeing people of color represented in a more positive light when it comes to Magazines, Movies, Tv and even Marketing.”
What I love most about her style is that she looks great in her outfits! I would totally shop in her closet because she rocks pieces that I love as well and did I mention that her hair is to die for, that honey blond color is beautiful in her natural hair. I love that her hair is always on point!!
She wants her readers to know that, ” Looking Great and Feeling great should never cost a fortune.” and that she is a ” mom, wife, full time employee and a lover of all things fashion.” What do you all think of her style? My favorite look is the orange skirt and black top, what’s your fave?
Please stop by and show her some love on her blog! You can also find her on Facebook , She’s hoping to take the fashion world by storm, one frugal post at a time! Well, Deidre your well on your way 😉
Thanks for visiting!
At 33 years old even I still think that I’m too young to have breast cancer but we all know it’s a real possibility for young women to have this form of cancer.
I had my first mammogram when I was 30 and continue to do regular self breast exams.
Breast cancer struck home several years ago, my grandmother died of this type of cancer, which was discovered in its late stages. It was difficult to see someone suffer from a disease that could have been better treated if it was detected earlier.
I participate in several types of fundraisers that help build more awareness and provide more funding to fight breast cancer. I’ve done walks with the Susan G. Komen foundation and Making Strides as well as donations through other organizations. I recently attended a local benefit dinner where proceeds from each ticket sale went towards breast cancer survivors.
I try and do something different each year, my favorite event thus far was the Susan G. Komen 5k walk through Central Park in NYC. I went with a group of coworkers and friends, met so many survivors there and was so happy to be apart of something so wonderful and beneficial to others.
I love that there are so many ways to show your support. The survival rates have increased and the number of related deaths have declined, thanks to research, new treatments, and early detection.

Hope you love the pictures and please enjoy whats left of the weekend!
