I’ve decided to no longer talk or complain about winter. I’m over the snow, cold and blizzards. I’m fully aware that it is still very cold , and that there most likely will be a few more flurries, and sub zero temperatures before this season completely effaces itself. But as of today, I’ve made the decision to rejoice in the fact that there are a little less than 30 days left until Spring, which brings me to today’s post!

Metal, metal and more metal. Metallic accessories, specifically shoes make me do a happy dance. I prefer gold to silver, but lately that silver’s been growing on me.

Now… I know that metallics aren’t a NEW trend, but it’s one that keeps on giving. Every season new styles emerge, and today, I’m sharing a few pairs that would work for you regardless of your personal style. I’ve created a sweet style guide just for you that I’ve cleverly named  “pedal to metal” hahahah good right?! You know you like it ;)

Best part is, all the shoes listed above are under $100. Woop!

But wait… there’s more, I’ve also made a mini-me chart, for all you twinning fanatics out there. And by all you twinning fanatics I mean me! Not as much of a clever title but hey I tried! Check out the “Just like mommy’ style guide below for the lil’ mamas.

Boys, I’ve got you next!

First things first!

SN [ the secular music lover  in me always wants to break down into full on Biggie Smalls “one more chance” (radio edit) rap mode when I hear/say “first things first “. As a matter of fact any word reminds me of a song… I could be having a conversation with you and one word could very well trigger a concert in my head and I could totally belt out a tune, because these are the things that go on in my head. You can sit there and act like you don’t do it… But you know you do. Matter of fact you do it at least once a day ;)

Let’s carry on and try this again!

—-

First things first, let me start by saying that I am one proud mama! Neriah is almost fully potty trained!

We’ve been dealing with potty training headaches for months, and it’s only when we decided to let her be, and accept  that she would use the potty when she’s ready that she surprised us all.

She’s been using it on her own for about a little over a week now and we couldn’t be happier. I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I celebrate every single thing this little girl does and while he was doing the harlem shake, I was doing the Ndombolo !

But wait there’s more…

Not only is she almost completely potty trained, our lil’ mama ditched the crib and has moved to a toddler bed.

Yes she’s almost 3 and yes up until last night she was sleeping in a crib!  You see my daughter has ninja-esque sleeping habits. She is a wild sleeper, which I should have caught on to from her days in the womb.

The idea of having her outside the crib, wasn’t one I was “down” with, I liked the comforting feeling of having her “behind bars”! It assured me that 1) she wasn’t going anywhere and 2) she would get a good night sleep.

But being that she will be turning 3 this week, we figured it was time for her to move on to bigger and better, hence, le toddler bed.

I will say that this morning, her father and I had a good laugh when we found her sleeping with  the bottom half of her body (legs) off the bed and onthe floor while her torso remained on the bed.

I should have captured the moment, but something tells me there will be plenty more until she fully gets accustomed to sleeping on the bed.

All in all a great first night … Which leads me to today’s post!

Now that Riah is out of the crib, it’s time to start thinking about her sibling’s nursery. Thankfully, N’s crib is white, which is a neutral color and as mentioned before,  I ‘m all about neutrality when it comes to kids. The whole push on “pink” is for girls and blue is for boys is something that causes me great anguish, and a topic I will discuss further in another post, because today, we celebrate.

I’ve already mentioned that I love greys and whites, so over the weekend while getting some much needed rest, I made my way to the mecca of inspiration and looked up nursery ideas.

signature style

I’ve been wearing a lot of black lately, which is a little out of character for me considering that up until a few years ago, I rarely ever wore the color. If you know me, you know that green is my color of choice. Any shade of green makes me happy. But the last few months have been filled with black and I like it!

Other than it’s ability to match everything, black has oh so many benefits!

It’s easy to wear, it looks good with pretty much everything and it has slimming powers. You see how my bulging belly has disappeared? I assure you I’m still very pregnant.

Black has become part of my signature look,, along with my short hair, a good lip color and of course oversized shades!

I’ve recently joined Garnet Hill’s blogger challenge which consists of bloggers sharing their signature style and inviting their readers to do the same.

So I ask you to join me in sharing your signature style by using the hashtag #GHSignatureStyle on Instagram and Twitter for a chance to receive a Garnet Hill personalized gift!
