United Colors of Benetton’s New Season in Kids

This Season, United Colors of Benetton is screaming at its competitors!
High quality sweaters and super strong denim has Mom’s and kids alike in a state of “WOW”. Zac’s grandmother got him an awesome collection of United Colors- Kids gear for Christmas. After we tried on the clothes, I fell in love with the quality and did some investigation on their website. You’ll find a great display of the upcoming seasons goodies for kids of all ages. I selected the “shop” and found some of the items Zac received. I honestly fell in love with the idea of being able to see what they have now and what is soon to come. There is currently a sale of up to 50% off which I will be patronizing!
My Grandparents celebrated their Golden 50th Anniversary.  While picking out clothes for the party, the first thing Zac could think of wearing was his logo sweater. I of course intervened and incorporated a little bit of ZARA and H&M.
Take A Look!

New Hair! New Year!

For the past 4 years I’ve worn the SAME EXACT hair style!
As I breezed through my Facebook pictures and bored myself from the lackluster side swept bangs, I realized it was time for a true change.
My hair has been natural for quite some time meaning:
NO relaxer
NO texturizer
NO perms
With that, I decided to join the kinky-curly crew and embrace my naturally beautiful hair.

 For the past week, I’ve been trying the Bantu Knots and manipulating my natural curl patterns to see where it takes me. The entire has been quite interesting but I thank GOD everyday that my Mum is a hairstylist… Lord KNOWS the outcomes may have been truly TRAGIC, lol
Wish me luck as I figure out how this works.
I need products to try out…
ALL recommendations will be greatly appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚
enjoy your weekend!!

Let’s Go To The Park!

For the past few weeks, I’ve been working like a maniac!
50+ hour work weeks have kept me away from doing some of the things I most enjoy…
Late night dinner with the ladies, Reality T.V. with mi madre, and most importantly, hang time with my chipmunk, Zac. To make up for time lost, I took the most important man I know out for an evening at the park. 
The weather had been awesome the entire day. I couldn’t miss a moment!

Just Can’t Let Go!

Zac has been growing all too quickly!
I haven’t been all too brave as far as letting him start school. 
I know it sounds a bit silly but, I find that the more kids are exposed to… well… OTHER kids, they can become slightly… different.
I’m somewhat nervous of Zac picking up phrases or habits I don’t support at home.
As unrealistic as that sounds, I fought my fears and took my chipmunk to experience a trial day at a neighboring day care I grew up in.
Although I didn’t show up in time, here’s the gear I intended him to wear, lol

Baby Gap Hat, H&M Bow-tie, H&M Button Down, Baby Gap Crew Neck Sweater, H&M Skinnies

On the Move!

Life has gotten quite hectic with a few events at The Gap as well as my new position and transfer coming up. I hadn’t had much time to update MOM.ME

Zac has been growing a ton!
His face is changing, sense of humor is over the top, and believe it or not, so has his energy. He’s becoming much more over protective and social as his vocabulary grows. With this NEW-FOUND ZAC, its time for an upgrade in wardrobe.
My Mom or as Zac likes to say, “Ya-ya” and I went window shopping to see what sales would be going on for the kids.
We were DRAGGED in to The Children’s Place by their unavoidable “$5 Tees” Ad on Fulton Street.
 After remembering my more than generous employee discount at Gap, I reneged, we left out empty handed but, DO check out their sale… TONS to offer at The Children’s Place.
 With the Chipmunk growing, I’m hoping to maintain his bow-tie. I’d say he favors the clean lines but the Tie definitely adds fun.
His SUPER fashionista Grandma- Mrs Jamison is known to find THE most insane and unheard of sales ever known to man. Of course, she ran into Daffy’s which is now going out of business and ran into these cool finds for the Zacster.
MOSCHINO Orig Retail Price $85
Moschino Orig Retail Price $133
Diesel Orig. Retail Price $85
Each show ranges from about $85-$133 actual retail price. Mrs Jamison and her wonderful self managed to get these funky Diesel tennis shoes for $30 bucks. I fell in love with them the moment she’d text the photo’s. Anyone who knows Diesel knows their products last forever and a day, not to mention, the shoes are without a doubt comfortable. I wanted to stay away from the “Toddler-Like” round toe in the Moschino shoes and kinda liked the maturity and spirit of the Diesel shoe for my big boy.

Too Cute Chipmunk of the Day!

Check THIS cute little Chipmunk and his Fashion Forward Energy !!!!
 This little man is wayyyyy too cool with his H&M gear on. I’m not one for biting but, I may have to steal this haircut for Zac. But, I must say. Whomever this hot guys parents are definitely know style and understand their little one. The socks are the coolest touch and definitely match his personality. Not too many can pull this off but, to each its own.
This kid is DEFINITELY a breed of his own. But, he can be down with the #TeamZac any day!

A Bit About Me

        Most people know me for my sense of humor, outspokenness, high-energy, and most importantly, my son Zachary (otherwise known as Zac). From the day he was born, my life changed. It became a little more exciting. A little more interesting. Instead of using make-up or having cute shoes or a wearing a great hair cut, I have the cutest, most liveliest accessory in this guy (but I’ll address his coolness in the following issue)

       I’m a Visual Merchandiser at The Gap so, I have a lot of fun meeting new people, styling them and their families and just making things look beautiful. You’ll be able to see some of the work my Brand team and I have done. I’ve been lucky enough to work at many different stores within the East Coast, met tons of great people in the midst of it.

   There are a lot of interesting characters in my life. My VERY West Indian-American mother, my perfectly HILARIOUS older sister, a few eccentric and unusual friends you may get to know and love as well. Throughout my journal, I hope you’re able to use us as a reference for fashion from real life people. With real incomes. And real responsibilities. ๐Ÿ™‚
