Business Babes – Faves On Friday

robincharmagne talks business goals

Happy Friday,
This week finished on a busy note, which is fine by me. I would rather be busy getting things done that move me toward my goals. Pretties, I have seriously been grinding for the past few weeks, being intentional about my business goals and objectives – defining my end game. I’m always looking for business motivation whether that is people, books, quotes, or a good movie. Today’s Faves on Friday is some business goodies to help you get to your end game.

1 – Sometimes we think people who have money or who are doing well are different from us, well yes they are. They think differently. You wanna be rich, successful, and happy then you have to change your mind. Best business advice I have read this year!

2 – Grammar Police? Um yeah. Sorry, not sorry. Some words and phrases get ingrained in our head and we use them everyday – incorrectly. I know that you know at least one person who needs this list stat! My vocabulary is expanded for sure.

3 – This beauty encompasses the one trend you betta rock this Fall. And, in a faux fabric, you will have some coins left over to snag a bag in this trend too. Wearing this jacket will make you feel like a real Boss Chick – girls, who run the world.

4 – This super short book asks where will you be five years from today? It seems far off, but time goes by pretty quickly. Do you know where you want to live, what you want to be doing? If not, this book can help you getcho life! Great Christmas gift too!

5 – When I need inspiration in business, this rags to riches movie gets me pumped up to meet my goals. Favorite line – “Dress shabbily, they notice the dress. Dress impeccably, they notice the woman – Coco Chanel! Say that Sigourney Weaver.

What are some of the goals you are trying to achieve? Let’s cheer each other on!

Have an absolutely fabulous weekend!

Rainbow – Faves On Friday

rainbow-robincharmagne
Hello Pretties,
Hey y’all Friday finally made it! I know what you’re thinking, what’s this crazy pic robincharmagne posted? I saw a rainbow this week. I have not seen a rainbow in like forever. No filters no editing, raw and natural.This divine collision of water and light fanned out across the sky, creating this beauty. It just really got me excited. On the home front, this has been a rough week for my family with some good news and some not so good news. So when I saw that rainbow, all I could say was thank you God for reminding me of your presence despite the storm. Rainbows are supposed to mean good luck and legend has it, there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. But have ya’ ever seen the end of a rainbow?? It’s the inspiration for this week’s Faves On Friday. Five things to just make ya’ smile, and only one splurge everything else is under $50.

Eloquii – Outfit Of The Day Pieces

Hello there,
OOTDs (outfits of the day) are the most fun to put together but sometimes you just run out of ways to mix and match your wardrobe. I have mostly jeans and a whole bunch of tops cause y’all already know that’s my uniform. I’m kinda at that point where I need to add some versatile, transition pieces as we prepare for some much desired Fall weather. My go-to shop for plus-size fashion is Eloquii. You’ve seen me in their fashions quite a bit on the blog, most recently here. Their pieces follow the trends, not boxy or frumpy, but fashion forward and they come in a fabulous array of sizes, 14-26. The best aspect of shopping with Eloquii is the fantastic sales that they have weekly, sometimes more than once a week. Fab buys are in ample supply on the site. I handpicked some pieces I’m itching to add to my closet. The price points vary from $16 to $169.

Connection And Community – Monday Musing

Connection-and-Community-robincharmagne

Hello Pretties,
Was your weekend grand? I hope you did something, everything or nothing. It’s all good. This Monday is another day of musing about things that are top of mind lately. Last Monday, I shared with you all about a new social media tool Periscope, that is growing and how fear almost, almost kept me from diving in. I watched quite a few “scopes”as they are affectionately called, and people who use Periscope are “scopers” and really good scopes are “dope scopes.” Yep the word dope is back in fashion. Periscope is just another thing on my blogging journey. But I realized while watching the scopes, how I almost missed two important pieces of blogging – Connection and Community.

Kimonos And Shorts – OOTD #64

robincharmagne-leaning-photoshoot

Hello pretties,
Midweek and things are humming right along. How goes it in your neck of the woods? We aren’t officially in a heat wave in The A, but I swear it feels like it, very HOT. Perfect weather for light layering pieces and my favorite this season is the kimono. I love this bohemian style trend and have worn this thing all summer long, including here. I wore these shorts on vacation, but was a little leery about modeling them on the blog. But after attending The Curvy Fashionista’s Style Expo and seeing so many full-figured pretties celebrating their size, I said no more, “I can’t wear this or that” on the blog. Nothing is off-limits so y’all better watch out! The day of the photo shoot was so hot calling for easy and breathable fabrics. Take a peek!

12 Dorm Room Goodies

dorm-room-goodies-robincharmagne

Hello,
How’s everyone doing? Sending positive vibes to ya’! Have y’all been enjoying seeing all the kid’s first day of school pics? I always loved school and still have a love of learning, so it just makes me giddy! Not so many pics of the college kids going back or just starting their college careers. Maybe they are preoccupied with snagging stuff for their fancy smancy dorm rooms.

I remember my dorm room, it was not decked out at all, really kinda plain. I had a navy blue comforter set from Sears, a small fridge, desk lamp, bath stuff and a husband(back rest), that’s it. My folks were all about reading, writing, and rithmatic’ and not letting me have a fancy room. Guess what else I had? Wait for it….a typewriter. Yep, no computers. That makes me feel so ancient but I used that thing for a minute. Kids today have these dorm rooms decked out to the max. My niece’s dorm room was more like an apartment with all the trimmings. If you have a sweet kiddo headed to college, I’ve handpicked some goodies to make any student smile!
