Fashion

Fashion was my first love, here is a collection of fashion blog posts on how I style trends, outfit of the days, look books, tips, and so much more all to do with fashion and style.

2017 FALL FASHION LOOKBOOK | POSITIVE BODY IMAGE

My blog and YouTube channel started off as Dress Yourself Happy. Because when I was going through a pretty rough time in my life, I found the blogging world that reminded me all the work I was doing on the inside wasn’t enough, I had to dress myself happy too. While I’ve always loved beauty and skincare, I LOVED fashion. Playing with different trends and finding things that worked for my body was always fun. Dealing with some body image…

WHAT’S IN MY HANDBAG – SUMMER 2017

Power Color Red

Power Color Red Happy Thursday! Can you believe it’s the end of the first week of 2017? In honor of the New Year, today’s look of the day focuses on my power color red.  New Year means a fresh start, which is why I want to wear red, my power color.

New York Travel Diary

New York, My History Arriving in NYC This year, Hubs had to meet me in New York. Flying into JFK International alone, I had an overwhelming sadness. Part of it could have been the stress of travel. The other part was the realization how a year can change your life. Most of the time, I just chug along day by day. When there are makers in time that remind me I have managed to chug along for a year plus,…
