Family Fun! A Day at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to share some of my family time with you all.
First, I wanted to let you all know something. I don't blog for the "money", shit I don't get any money, LOL. I blog because it's a creative outlet for me and I use this to express myself and get all of my ideas in my head out. I do the Family Time to capture the little moments our family share and in time when my girls get older they can come here and see the places we've been, how much fun they had and think back on the memories. I know I only have 23 followers and most of you have more than 1000 or so, but still enjoy sharing with you all and capturing the moments with my family. It's only the 4 of us and we've lived in Dallas for about 12 years, I told my babies this summer we are going to experience Dallas like never before. When I wasn't working we really had to save up months to go to places we wanted to go or our car didn't have air condition and I wasn't about to subject my kids to the Texas Heat, LOL!
Now that everything is O.K. and we have an extra paycheck coming in, plus and new car, 
Thank God!! 
We can enjoy the summer with the girls like we want to... 

Well from time to time during the summer, I'll be posting blogs of our Family Time..
Hope you enjoy.

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.  Inspiration: 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
