Too good...

Men's wear has been fascinating to me lately. I am 
stimulated by subtle, strong, and edgy pieces.

A burst of Coral

Outfit of That Day

I got my braces off Friday and it was literally so exciting. I had 
been waiting for this moment for such a long time and now 
that it is here, I am literally in love with my smile, for the most
part; still adjusting. I got this coral/orange coat for X-mas from
my mom. I am in love with it. I also received this ring from 
my close friend and roomie Jess which I adore! I am a bargain
shopper for sure. But I am not a quantity type of girl, it has to 
be great quality and also good price- hence, Bargain Nonee!


Coat- Gifted from Mom (Old Navy)
Pants- HM ($5)
Boots- Zara ($42) 
Hounds-tooth Cardigan- Target ($8)
Tank- Target ($2)
Ring- Gifted from Jess (Macys?)

1st OOTD of 2013

Outfit of the Day

Sadly, today is my last day in Connecticut. Good bye to sleeping at 4 
or 5 a.m. each day and waking up at noon. Goodbye to good conversation
with my brothers and mom. Goodbye to being a thug (not real thuggin') and 
chillin' all day. And goodbye to being 100% comfortable with familiar
and wonderful people- my family! But on the other hand, hello 2013 and 
every wonderful thing this year has to offer me (braces off Jan 18, graduation, new 
job, next chapter, new opportunity). Back to this OOTD, all I wanted for 
X-mas was a good pair of leather boots. I scored these beauties from 
Zara for $42 (all leather, and good grip) Holla! Bargain Nonee strikes again!

Down Coat- Nine West from Herbergers (gifted)
Corduroy skinnies- H&M ($10)
Cross-body Purse- Urban Outfitters ($9.99)
Scarf- Charlotte Russe ($5)
Boots- Zara ($42)
Ring- handmade by moi

2012 "OOTD" FlashBack for TPJ


2012 was a year of learning. My year began with launching TPJ January 1st. I
considered TPJ a place to come and do what I LOVE to do which involves style,
photography, expression, jewelry, and many other artistic things. 

I have grown so much this last year and I feel relatively successful in taking the 1st 
step. I pray and long for better success in 2013. 

Great moments of 2012:
1. The Pinnest's Journal launch January 1st, 2012
2. Buying my first car in February
3. First OOTD in April 2012
4. Concluding junior year nursing in June
5. Africa in July (most amazing)
6. Beginning senior year in September
7. Opening AfroBeat Jewelry in November
8. Nursing Dedication in November
9. Spending the holidays with my familia in Connecticut
10. Wishing my blog a marvelous and splendid 1st year Anniversary January 1st, 2013

Happy 1 year Anniversary!

To many many more...
