Ladies (and gents), it can be a challenge to find the perfect workbag. A bag that can fit all of your important items. Something that has enough room for your wallet, personal items, basically everything you already throw in your purse (or pockets), PLUS your breakfast/lunch, a change of shoes, maybe a computer, an umbrella and any other items you deem important for your work day/commute. So we've taken it upon ourselves to find some super chic options to ensure you're living your best Kyndafly life!Read More
Our #WCW is none other than our very own Kyndafly gal, Renata. If you haven't heard yet, she was featured on the My Black is Beautiful site for her daring use of color! Check out the post here, http://on.fb.me/1W94RdS!
Packing for a quick trip? Like leaving today come back tomorrow type of trip? Well, we're here to help you pack light and still manage have everything you want (and need). And of course, you'll have a few options, because fly ladies (and gents) gotta have options. So, as I prepare for my very own whirlwind jaunt fours hours to the south (what up STL!), here are some very helpful tips for what to bring.
- Commit to no more than three pair of shoes, and really three pair may be one too many. Bring a comfy, casual pair (sneakers) and a dressy pair (stylish, yet versatile). Having a versatile dressy option will allow you to wear it with multiple looks, should your time on this trip include a few events.
- That brings me to clothing options. Separate the trip into two parts, travel and events. For time spent traveling, be it by plane, train or automobile, think comfort. Joggers, hoodies, t-shirts, leggings, etc. And since this trip clocks in at less than 48 hours, you will likely be able to wear the same travel clothes on the trip home. For your events, bring two bottoms (pants/skirts) and a few shirt options. Don't forget pj's, socks, undies!
- Lastly, you'll need your toiletries and accessories, which can likely be packed in the same bag. Pack the essentials and you should be good to go!
Now all you have to do is muster up the energy to enjoy every minute of your super quick getaway! Happy travels!
Let’s face it, sometimes going out sort of feels like work. At least the effort to get yourself in the mood to go out, then figuring out something to wear, then the actual process of getting dressed…sometimes all of that is so daunting, you consider passing on the whole night out. Eventually though, you’re all dressed and ready to go. And it’s probably later than you expected to start the night out, but once you are actually out, you’re out for the long haul. It’s never planned that way, but once you have a couple of drinks with your girls, the fun just doesn't stop. And before you know it, you’ve slept away half of your weekend from an Instant Classic night out, you feel like crap, and dammit, the weekend is almost over.
But, what if you could have all of that fun, minus the hassle of convincing yourself you want to go out. A few drinks, good times with your friends, and still fully enjoy your weekend…who isn’t down for that? Well, you can (and probably have) partaken in such an activity…commonly referred to as the Day Party.
Day Parties are nothing new, but it seems as if the sheer number of them has increased on any given weekend in recent years. And it’s fairly easy to understand their appeal or preference in some cases. The same party environment you experience in the wee hours of the night/morning, smack dab in the middle of the day is fun. Mostly because day drinking is fun! And well, it’s a fun way to spend part of your weekend. You’re out and about, socializing and NOT sleeping away part of your weekend. With the day party, you’re actually making god use of your weekend. And if you play it just right, you have the ability to do something before and after, ensuring you aren’t just wasting away the those magical 48 hours you dream about during the long work week.
The appeal for this event is obvious, but is the appeal so strong that it could replace the traditional night time version? I highly doubt it. But, for some of us who've since tired of those long nights partying until the sun comes up, the Day Party is quite the enticing alternative. Party for a few hours during the day, and home in time for movie night? What's not to love? If you haven't made it out to a day party yet, shame on you! Partake in this fun and not so new party alternative, and enjoy your weekend!
