Now that Halloween is over, fall is in full gear in NY. I have a love/hate relationship with the fall. I love to be decked out in a cute fall jacket, I love rocking cute sweaters with boots but I hate being cold!
SheIn is by far my favorite website of the moment and lately, I've been stalking their website for some peek-a-boo shirts and some really cute fur vests and coats. Check out my wish list for November below and tell me which one is your favorite!
Shhh, it's a secret! Get 40% off $55 and over with code PM40. Ends November 7, 2016.
Yes, it is officially that time! Hot lattes, pumpkin spice and my favorite dark lipstick. Although I'm known for rocking a dark lippie all year, there's nothing like rocking black lipstick with a leather moto jacket and some over the knee boots for the win. Because your girl is frugal, I keep a cheap hitter in my purse. $12 and under. My favorites from this year include some oldies (NYX Transylvania) and some newbies from Nicka K and Sephora. I just dropped some selfies so you guys could see the lighting difference and I have a swatch picture of all my favorites as well.
My first Nicka K True Matte purchase was earlier this year. I decided to venture outside of my normal NYX Soft Matte Cream purchase due to budget restraints and I picked up this really pretty gray matte color. The only problem was that it was super drying and in a matter of hours, I felt as if it was flaking off of my lips.
After watching a video from The Socialite Life on youtube, it was explained to me that coloring changes the formula of lipsticks.(You learn something new every day, thanks girl!) I decided to give Nicka K another shot, purchasing a true matte color called Cocoa Bean, a black matte and an iridescent one similar to the Sephora one I already have.
The second round was way better than the first. I love the True Matte Cocoa Bean especially for the price ($3.99 - $5.99 depending on where you are). Although the formula is really drying, I only needed to apply it once throughout the day and it stayed put through me eating and drinking after several hours. I do recommend moisturizing your lips prior to using this lipstick and not wearing it days in a row like I did.
While I was pregnant, I used yoga to alleviate my back pain and for mental clarity through meditation. I've been doing yoga for a few years and since starting, my yoga practice has elevated from using rain forest and white noise sound tracks to full out Trey Songz, Partynextdoor and Bryson Tiller playlists. I had no idea what I was doing had a name and is recognized as #trapyoga where black girls are uniting their love for yoga and trap soul.
Although I am still a newbie, Yoga has been more than just a tool for my back pain, it has become a key element in my every day life especially after becoming incontinent from losing the muscles in my pelvic floor following my emergency c-section. Yoga allows for flexibility and also increases your libido through increased blood flow so it's also good for women who have lost their sexual appetite due to pregnancy.
Even though the majority of yoga you will see on this post is done in workout clothes, personally, I do it naked or in lingerie. Yoga is beautiful and can be sexy and should be treated as such. For those who are apprehensive about yoga, I recommend trying it in a mirror in whatever you feel comfortable in.

Who doesn't love a good arch? This cow pose in conjunction with the cat pose strengthens your kegel muscles for stronger contraction action and great orgasms.
Excellent for stretching thigh muscles and relieving tension in the hips. No tensing up! Also extremely easy to do for beginners.
Gets the blood rushing! Do I really have to spell this one out for you?
Calms the mind and cures muscle tension plus your ass is up in the air.
This pose is targeted to the vaginal area, focusing on the cervix. Once you release this pose, blood rushes through the cervix area prepping your coochie for some activity.
Wide legged Straddle
This was the first difficult pose I learned how to master. There are many variations of this pose including an aerial one which is easier for beginners. This pose is great for libido, increasing blood flow in the pelvic area. And, any sexual partner will appreciate a solid split.
I'm a summer baby, but I absolutely love Men's fashion in the fall. I love the array of jackets, stylish sweaters. Fall is the perfect season for versatility when it comes to mix and matching bow ties, button downs under cashmere sweaters, suede blazers, pea-coats. On the casual side, wind breakers, hoodies and my personal favorite, gray sweatpants. Below are my top picks from UK site Stand Out.
