5 Must Have Little Black Dresses

Hi loves!! The long weekend is almost here and good heavens I am SO excited!!
Aaron and I were supposed to be going to Georgia, BUT plans have changed. So looks like it will be a fun filled weekend in the ham. 
{famers market • dog parks • church • pool day • gym gym gym}
 I can't tell you how excited I am for Monday.

We are just going to the pool all day :) We may grill or something! 

Anyway, on to the real post!
I wanted to share with you my TOP 5 Must Have Little Black Dresses. 
Seriously...a M U S T
The comfy cute t-shirt style dress. I would wear these every single day if I could. It's almost like staying in your pjs all day! 

Black with a little pop of color is always a must! The little details of color add so much character!

The skater style dress is necessary to draw attention to your waist area! I love love love these types of dresses because they usually hide my big booty! Hahaha

And these body con dresses tend to do the opposite...accentuate my big booty. I love these! I love how they show off women's curves! <3 and we all know I love anything and everything striped!

And last but not least a floor length dress that is flowy and airy! I love the cutout details of this dress.
All of these pieces are from a company called SheIn! 

Check out the prices are really great too and yes this is a legit company.
I'm about to start shopping for the beach. I am ecstatic for this trip for several reasons. The main one being that this is Aaron's first time to go with us and also my Auntie Stacie and Uncle Brian are going and they know how to have some real fun! EEEK! So, I will beed to be looking CUTE!

Bye for now

Fake Companies?

Hi Loves!!

I was just web browsing while working down my first cup of coffee for this morning. This is what I do while I attempt to wake up and become mentally ready for the gym! It really does help LOADS when I see all of these amazing pieces of clothing/swimwear. Its such a motivator thinking, MAN I want to look GOOD in that. 

So I come across this site called Zaful. And Hello, look up there! There are some STUNNING options and that just on the first page. Not only that, the prices are incredibly low. So I'm looking and then I start thinking, this has just got to be too good to be true! My little fashion loving heart is jumping around like its on some sort of high, only to be crushed immediately.

So then I look up reviews for this website and of course all of them are terrible. Most of the reviews people say after months their purchases never even arrived. And when they tried to contact Customer Service...nothing. They couldn't get anyone. 

For real? How to companies like this get away with this? Have any of you ever had an experience like this with a random online company? I want these BAD. They are incredible. 
If anyone knows an actual legit site where I can buy something similar, do share!

That is all for today. Oh one last thing, I am SO excited for the weekend!!

Bye now

Atlanta Trip

Happy Sunday Friends! 
I am currently sitting on the couch doing everything I can to keep my eyes open long enough to finish this post. I've had a very fun, yet exhausting weekend! Here are some photos from mine and Aaron's fun Saturday in Georgia.

First stop in Atlanta, The World of Coke
Gosh, this place never gets old for me and that darn movie at the beginning makes me bawl my eyes out every single time. 

We had such a blast in the Tasting Room! I think it should totally be required that you leave with a stomach ache from all of the sugar intake. Aarons favorite was Ginger Beer haha! My favorite will always be Coke Zero! Mmmmm! OH something I didn't know is that Coca Cola makes my favorite Coconut Water!

I love this man so much. He's seriously the best! It doesn't matter what we are doing, he finds some way to make it fun and memorable!

After the WOC we went to the aquarium and spent the rest of the afternoon there. The fish are so pretty but sometimes I would get sad because of how large they are in such small tanks.

I would definitely suggest going to The World of Coke if you are ever in Atlanta! It is the best!!
We had gone to Georgia to visit some of Aaron's family, but unfortunately they had someone they were close to pass away. So we ended up just making it a quick trip! So our family trip is rescheduled for Labor Day weekend and I can NOT wait!! It's going to be so much fun!

Well friends, I am off to bed!! Why do the weekends have to go by so fast?

Weekend Craziness, Friends and Pups!

Hi Friends!
I'm so glad its the weekend. Although thinking about my weekend makes me tired. This weekend will be filled with an early trip to Pepper Place to see some friends and family, The Boudoir Belle has a shoot tomorrow, and then as soon as that is over I'll be hauling tail to get to my friend Tiffany's Baby Shower...Oh, did I mention I am one of the Hostesses of the shower. I am so excited to celebrate Tiff and Trav as well as excited to spend some time with some of my closest friends.
This same exact group <3 Gosh can't believe this was almost a year ago since we took this! These friends of mine are the ones that no matter where life takes know that they are always there for you, and you are always there for them. I lived two hours away for over two years and not one single thing changed between us. 

So Tiffany & Travis' life is about to change in a huge way and we all can't wait to meet, cuddle and love on baby Carson Hayes. Ahh Seriously cannot wait! 


On another note! I just wanted to give all of you an updated on the new addition to our Family!
M R.  B A I L E Y 

It's been an adjustment for Bucky! He's so sweet, however the little guy is spoiled rotten. Like BAD. It's embarrassing to say, but sometimes he would cry until we sat in the floor with him to eat...and we would. Every. Single. Time. So SPOILED. But Bucky & Bailey have been getting along GREAT! 
I love all of my handsome guys. I'm one lucky lady!!

I'm off to give the dogs a walk and then I'm off to work.
I hope you all have a fantastic and easy Friday!
Be back soon,

Do Good People!


Today is finally the day. I've been waiting and waiting on this day to get here ALL week it honestly couldn't have creeped by any slower. But finally, FRIDAY is here and I couldn't be more thrilled about that. Now to knockout my workout and the work day. Theres something very exciting happening and I can NOT wait to share with you all! And if you're one of those that is automatically thinking..."Oh this is the day for Brianna...." and your thoughts wonder to something pretty and sparkly on my finger. Let me just stop you there...NO! That's not the exciting news for today. So you can go ahead and put that little idea to rest for another day!

So....Stay tuned here, as well as on Instagram and Facebook later tonight!

Also, one last thing for this wonderful Friday ahead.
{So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12}
Today, try and remember the scripture above. It's just so simple to do. Sometimes in life we make decisions, or we do something that has an impact on someone in a negative way. It may or may not be intentional, but it still happens sometimes. Here lately I've been really focusing on "switching the roles." Sometimes it's much easier in relationships to see how your decisions effect someone else by putting yourself in their shoes for a second. For example, say I am thinking about doing something that I'm not sure if Aaron would be okay with or not. The best way to really know other than asking him directly is to simply switch roles and ask myself, "If Aaron did that to me, would I be okay with it? If I come up with a NO answer! Then 9 out of 10 of those times, I shouldn't do it to him either! {Please don't misunderstand this...Aaron and I both are individuals who make our own decisions, however, when you're in a committed relationship, its very important to consider each others thoughts and opinions on things!} It's just so painfully simple and it kills me to see people mistreat other human beings by being so selfish. So start today! If you want to feel loved more, love on others more. If you want to smile more, give more smiles. If you want to be helped more, give more help! If you want to be invested in, invest in others! I think you get it now! GO DO IT FRIENDS! 

Bye for now

Weekend Recap!

Hello Loves!
Hope you all had a great weekend and your week has had a wonderful start.
My weekend was SO fantastic. Although, as always it goes by WAY to fast!
We had a wonderful Saturday at Pepper Place! We love spending our Saturday Mornings there and I
l o v e when we get to take Bucky Ruspin with us! The farmers market is one of my top favorite things to go to in Birmingham! And we just have so much fun together! After we went to the Farmers Market, the day was just so incredible gorgeous that we wanted Bucky to play some more! So we took him to Railroad Park! We let him off of his leash and he had the BEST time he's had in a long long time. Especially since Aaron's back surgery. I'm sure this upcoming Saturday we will be doing the same exact thing! I for sure want to take Bucky back to Railroad!
Saturday night was Belle's Night Out! So I spent some time hanging out with my boss lady and some other awesome ladies that LOVE what The Boudoir Belle is all about! So we just enjoyed hanging out and relaxing at one of the ladies gorgeous homes in Greystone. She had this incredible pool and hot tub area! It was really one of the most gorgeous homes I've seen in a minute. 

We have some fun new things coming at the end of this week and cannot wait to share with all of you! I hope you have a super fantastic day!

New Styling Tools!

Holy Heaven my dear friends, I don't know if I have ever been so happy for the weekend. I feel like this week has been TWO MONTHS long. I honestly think its because last Saturday night Aaron and I went out to celebrate Kelley's 30th Birthday. We were out so late and they stayed out even later than we did! I just haven't had enough down time to recover from it. Well Kelley....You definitely brought in your 30's with a bang! Haha <3 Love that crazy lady! So I say all of that to say this... This weekend I am not doing anything except going to Church and a family birthday party! Oh and Belle's Night Out on Saturday night! 

So on to something that I have gotten around to sharing! I've had a couple of people asking about my hair and what I've been using on it! Well, I have to brag on my Handsome Man for a second. A few weeks ago, Aaron surprised me with a new flat iron from LUV Hair Inc. So he thought he was purchasing me a new flat iron. He was ordering online, btw. He knew it came with other things, but didn't know what they were! Well to my surprise it was a brand new flat iron along with a curling wand with FIVE different attachable barrel sizes. I have been in HAIR STYLING HEAVEN ever since. Before he bought me this thoughtful surprise, my Chi was completely worn out. But I have used that thing almost every single day for well longer than I can remember and I would use it to curl my hair! Needless to say, since I got the curling wand, I haven't even tried out the flat iron yet! Haha You did good babe, you did so good <3

So here's my new hair styled with my new curling wand. I think this want was maybe an inch barrel. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It makes my hair look thicker than it already is. I love big hair! We all know this about me by now ;) I love messy big natural looking hair and this gives me JUST that! 

Just wanted to share with all of you that have been asking!
Be back sometime this weekend.
Bye now
