ThrowBack Thursday.. Memories

Hey everyone! 
It's Throwback Thursday and I was just thinking back to see how much my girls have grown. My oldest daughter, Tatiana is taking the picture, she's my beauty queen. I'm holding on to little Nile because I know at any moment she would dart right into the water. Still til this day, she's the fearless one. Laila's the middle is the silent and observant one. Very conscious where we moves, just like a chess player. This picture was taken about 6 years ago in Mississippi while visiting my oldest daughter. I'm originally I from New Orleans but we moved to Dallas in 2004.

I'm not really a picture taker, never have and never will be. 
I don't like it. No Reason, it's just me.



Here's another beautiful picture that my oldest Tatiana took.
I know she needs to go into photography.
I actually have this picture enframed on my shelf. 


My hubby and my mom, when she came to see us on her Birthday about 2 years ago.


That's me and my girls about 5 years ago.. 
Everybody's all grown now.
I miss those times.



I've always been a Fashionista.
LOL! 
Me with the bow tie and the big smile and my beautiful cuz..


Last one!
My best girls and I went on a Fabulous cruise and we have a great time. 
I was feeling myself, lots of drinks and great company..
Yes!!


Until Next Time...
Make Memories Chic!!!!!

New Orleans Style Homemade Yaka-Mein!!
If you're not form New Orleans, then you probably will not know what this is. But if you do, then here's the recipe for "Yaka-Meat". Yaka-Meat originated http://www.noladefender.com/content/bowl-mystery. Link above to make a long story short..  
Ingredients below:

2 pounds of stew meat beef 3 or 4 quarts of water 2 cubes of beef bouillon cubes Black Pepper to taste Salt to taste Garlic Powder to taste Onion Powder to taste Kitchen Bouquet 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce Half Bottle Soy Sauce Half Bottle Any Louisiana Hot Sauce Long Green Onions Boiled Eggs

Add the 3-4 quarts of water and half bottles of Worcestershire and Soy sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and let cook about 2-3 hours or until beef is tender enough to fall apart.

Inspired Faux Leather Square Obi Belt

Hey Everyone!!! Today, I'm coming at you today with an accessory an Obi belt to be more specific. I've been obsessed with Loewe's Wide Obi Belt since I've seen it on one of my favorite Youtubers.  As some of you all already know, I love to recreate designer fashion but give a twist to it.
I love doing this at a fraction of the cost to tell the truth I actually did this for FREE..
Yes, FREE with faux black leather I purchased from Wal-Mart years ago.

I love how the belt cinches in your waist, making your silhouette even more dramatic.
Can you say Statement Piece?
It feels more like art to me, such sculpture statement to make.

Loewe Wide Obi Belt






It's not really a tutorial, more of a pictorial.
I actually used a old peplum pattern and cut the shape I wanted.
I can't give you dimensions, you'd have to make the shape to want..




When you get the shape you want, you cut the pattern.  Make sure you cut 2 and cut both on the fold.  After, cutting 2 ta…
