Thanksgiving Day

Outfit: Dress-Forever 21 (recent)/Booties-Seychelles(1 yr old)/Tights, Ring, Earrings-Ross

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I happened upon this beautiful tree when we were headed to Thanksgiving dinner at my aunt's, so I decided to stop and take a few pics. I found this dress at Forever 21 (~1 month ago) and immediately I knew it would be the dress I would wear to kick off the Holiday season. I also found these tights (~1 month ago) and they have become a wardrobe staple so much so that I purchased another pair this weekend. It's crazy because I never used to wear purple and now it's one of my favorite colors to give simple outfits a little punch!

There are only a few days left to participate in my upcoming giveaway! Please remember to follow my blog, follow me on Twitter @TiaLou75, or like my facebook page to enter.

Have a great week!

Last night I attended the Beautiful Textures Launch at bar ONE Atlanta and I had an amazing time. The event was free and included complimentary valet parking as well as a complimentary drink. It was a great venue to mingle with other naturals and I was completely shocked when I was asked to be interviewed about my hair! It was also great to hear the uses of the products and see actual models with different textures of hair that had been styled with Beautiful Textures products. The styling was awesome and best of all the products are affordable, less than $7 each. Gift bags were given to all attendees containing a full-sized a product. I was fortunate enough to win a gift bag containing the entire product line! I can't wait to try it all!!!
