Kickin’ It: The Tamar Collection Launch Event

PicMonkey Collage

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending “The Tamar Collection” launch event at Red Light PR studios in Manhattan.


At this event myself and a group of beautiful bloggers/socialites had the chance to experience the line and chat with Tamar Braxton up close and personal.


Myself & music artist Levine Leavitt

The Tamar collection is an affordable line of sophisticated and trendy clothing for the everyday woman. What I love about this collection is the wide variety of basics that work for an array of occasions. The line is filled with fun clothing and sexy shoes that can be worked into anyone’s wardrobe. When I asked Tamar who the collection was inspired by here’s what she said…

This line was created for women everywhere in all walks of life. We shouldn’t have to spend $1000 on a pair of shoes in order to be fabulous.

We couldn’t agree more with Tamar! Style shouldn’t be defined by a price tag.

Her gorgeous mom and sister Toni Braxton was also at the event supporting the launch of her collection!


All the guests left with a gift card so we could experience the collection first hand. I ended up ordering these black crepe pants and these blue denim jeggings.

Both pieces fit true to size and they are very comfortable. My favorite piece from the collection is definitely this red A-line dress that was sold out in my size on the site.

LBS Review: Reebok Skyscapes + GIVEAWAY

reebok-skycape-reviewNow that I’m a full-time mom, I’m finding it much harder to throw on a pair of stilettos just for the hell of it. After all, balancing in heels is a much harder feat when you have a little mini-me in one hand and a diaper bag in the other. So my day-to-day is much more balanced as far as footwear. I’m spending way more time in flats and…gasp…sneakers! Yes, the inevitable has happened. I am now a mom who wears sneakers. Sometimes.reebok-skycapes

When I do wear sneaks, I won’t settle for anything less than cute and comfy. I like my footwear to still be stylish and fun. I had the opportunity to try out these sneakers from the new Reebok Skycape collection, and they’re officially my new “running errands with baby in tow but must still look cute” sneakers. They are super lightweight at only 5 ounces and they are made of this material, this stuff that’s similar to what they use in lingerie, that makes them so soft & silky. Like I can literally wear them all day with no issue.


Just last week I took BabyBrownSugar (aka baby Cadence) on her very first afternoon stroll around the park. I packed her up in her little car seat, rode down to the park and strapped her up to her baby carrier after finally figuring out how to clip it on. With all the other things on my mind, the last thing I want to worry about was how my shoes look or feel.


So I decided to wear my black & pink Reebok Skycapes. They are SO comfortable. They feel like second skin. What’s even better is that they’re machine washable. So all that walking back and forth on the park’s grass, spilling milk while trying to get the baby to stop crying, all those little “new mommy” messes? Gone once you pop these babies in the washing machine.


I also love that they come in so many fun colors and they even have CUSTOMIZABLE pairs. How dope is that? You can get them in leopard print, blue camo, you name it. They’re available for online PURCHASE HERE from Reebok.com. Guess what? *Oprah voice*
