HAPPY THANKSGIVING FRIENDS!
Thank you for following Fashionably Living! Your comments mean the world to me and I am so grateful for each and everyone of you! I pray that you have a blessed and fashionable Thanksgiving!
Hi lovely ladies! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away? I can’t believe how fast this holiday season came, I remember thinking this summer that “I wish Christmas would come soon!” I just love this time of year! Even though I don’t live in an area of the country where it truly looks like Christmas time, but it is still beautiful and the weather is even more beautiful! Most Christmas’s are sunny and warm for me and although I dream of a White Christmas sometimes, I enjoy not having to shovel snow…lol!
Anyways today’s outfit is all about blue! I wore this outfit earlier this week and it was something new I combined from my closet! I love this blouse and I scored it for under $10 at Old Navy, I always like a good deal. This scarf was a gift from my mother-in-law and these pants are so comfy and I have them in four colors , when you like something, nothing is wrong with having several right? But did you see my new shoes? These are my favorite part of my outfit! Oh, how I love J. Crew these beauties were suppose to be a Christmas present, but I gifted them to myself earlier!
Have a fabulous and fashionable weekend!

The opportunity to add upholstered headboards is a popular way to update the look of a bed. It will have a more modern feel and will make those who sleep there feel more up to date. It is a good idea to change up some style and design elements in a home every now and then to keep up the energy. No matter how happy people are with how they decorate a space, it will feel old and dated over time. They will get tired of seeing the same things, the same colors and the same accents day after day. Updating different elements regularly will keep a home fresh and more enjoyable.
The variety of headboards for beds is impressive and changing them is a key decorating technique. This is a lot easier than many people think as the features are interchangeable since the bed rails are standard. Adding upholstery is even easier as many can slip over an existing part. Since the mattresses and other elements of the bed are hidden under comforters and are covered by duvets and dust ruffles, simply changing the bedding to match the headboard will make it look like a completely new bed in the room.
Changing the curtains is another quick and easy decorating solution that can make a big impact, especially when it is changed to match the bedding. These elements and a coat of paint could completely transform a room.
These changes are all easy and the project can be done in a weekend. None of the elements need to be expensive, making this project accessible to almost anyone. Those who are not happy with their current bedroom might want to shake things up a bit and do some redecorating. Making a headboard the focus of the project offers potential benefits as this is an element that is getting more attention. From standard wooden versions there is a wide variety of options to choose from. Some are padded and others are covered with fabric and there are even functional versions that have bookshelves built right into them.
Many of the elements of interior decoration are simple to change. Some people are intimidated by this kind of project as they think it has to be extensive and use expensive elements. Most of the changes are minor and can be done without any help. Choosing to switch to upholstered headboards or converting the current ones are good examples of how easy these kinds of changes can be.

Hi ladies! I am sorry I have been MIA for several days! I miss you all, I feel like I haven’t had a chance to sit down in 2 weeks!

I have always loved fitness and it has been something I have committed myself too from a young age, but its fun to share progress and to have accountability!
Here are a few tips to help take you through the Holidays!
1. Drink plenty of water! Add lemon it helps detoxify the liver and metabolize fat!
2. Before you plan a grocery trip or order out, look up the nutritional value of the foods you’re considering and ask yourself if your grocery list matches up with your needs and goals.
3. Eat a big salad before meals, it will help you fill up on healthy vegetables and you won’t eat as much!
4. Bring snacks with you to work or when your out running errands. Plan for one to two snacks a day as needed, and you’ll likely eat less and avoid binges.
5. Eat protein with each meal to keep away hunger pains
6. Eliminate sugary drinks and diet soda, which can trigger your craving for sweets.
7. Fire up your creative juices in the kitchen by investing in a new cookbook and trying new healthy recipes, a brand new great book is Feel Good Food!

Happy Tuesday Fashionably Living readers! I hope you are having a great start to your week. I am excited to share this outfit post with you, because I love it! As most of you know I love ruffles, so this blouse is one of my favorites! My sister-in-law gave it to me as a gift and its from one of my favorite stores J. Crew. The brown dress pants are a great fit and very comfortable and the nude heels are from Jessica Simpson, I love her shoes! I like neutral colors together, and now that it’s Fall I think these colors are very fitting. What color combinations you will be wearing this Fall?
