Chicago's upcoming events for October 2013

Image
Chicago is by far the best place to go on family outings, Downtown Chicago has a plethora of things to do! Family and kid friendly is definitely what you are after, (those of us with kids of course)...especially since we know how awful Winter can be around our town. Luckily for us, it has still been in the low 80's except for those early morning temps when it feels more like low 50's. Who's complaining definitely not me, you take what you can get, I know Winter is coming soon. Last year we seemed plagued with plenty of snow, but not as frigid temperatures. We definitely don't know what this year will bring us, but for now there is nothing wrong with enjoying a little extended Summer weather. Family time is so hard to obtain sometimes, because both parents are working, the children are in school and have activities, but spending as much time as possible with your family is always a great thing to do!  It's in those moments that we share with our little ones, th

A goal without a plan is just a wish, is tonight's topic for Positive Inspirations Radio Show. Have you ever had a moment where you thought you could do something, but without a clear goal, where will that thought get you? It's just a wish, you don't want your life to be a wish, we need to make our lives as fulfilling as possible. We can only make our lives fulfilling by completing what our destiny is, and you don't always know what your destiny is without a goal to complete the plan.  We discuss, how far our decisions can take us and how far we can go with a plan in life. Whether you are a new listener, or a recurring listener please keep listening and supporting the show. We really appreciate and love all of our listeners!!  So please sit back and relax, and enjoy the following episode of Positive Inspirations Radio Show!  Here is one of the many quotes from tonight's episode. -"Live life to the fullest, Live life happily, And live long"

Friday's Quotes of the Day

Image
I think in life we have to try and inspire people no matter who it is, our lives are a reflection of who we are and what we have yet to become.While there is growth, there will be times that our growth will be  influenced by the good and bad things that have impacted our lives.  Our life can best be described as a wishing well, if you expect great things to happen for you more than likely they will, but there are things like trivial pursuits that may get in  the way of your happiness.  I have chosen two really great quotes for Friday, that will affect you in a good way, print them out and post them somewhere you can reflect on them. It can be hard to see where we are going if we don't know where we have been. Life is a bunch of experiences that are coupled together and give us the tapestry of life. Reflection, optimism, growth, and influences will always impact you but it is through faith that you decide to be stronger, wiser and even more triumphant than you were bef

How It Was Styled Outfit of The Day

Follow my blog with Bloglovin October is a great time to wear the items that you love the most, for my outfit of the day, I chose a  black blazer, denim shirt, and burgundy skirt. These are all great colors for Fall, I also paired the outfit of the day with a pair of ankle boots.The sun was shining so brightly on this day, it was absolutely wonderful! The Fall trees are changing color, some of them resembled my burgundy skirt! Take some clues from the leaves falling all around you, to add some colorful inspiration to your wardrobe, you can never go wrong with denim or burgundy for Fall in my opinion. These colors can be easier for people that may gravitate toward black, or gray colors during colder weather. If you are that person, maybe you can switch it up this Fall and Winter. I used to love wearing darker colors in Autumn and Winter, but I noticed that the more vibrant colors you wear the happier that it makes you feel. You don't have to try anything drastic, but try a l

How It Was Styled Trend Black and White

For my third look, I am still utilizing the classic white shirt as my centerpiece but I have decided to add another great Fall trend using the colors black and white.  The dress in this post has a little vintage feel to it, and I loved it with the sandals, and belt wrapped around my waist. Don't be afraid to accentuate your waist in clothing it's so easy to add a belt at the lowest part of your waist, this will cinch in any shirt or dress that you are wearing. It's a great style tip, that more women should use. The dress in this post can be worn for Summer as well as Fall. I have brought this look into early Fall by simply adding the classic white shirt, a belt, and leather sandals.  As temperatures drop, add layers to  your favorite Summer dresses by adding tights, sweaters, and a great pair of boots. If you must spend money this season make sure that it's for things that you will wear over and over again. For instance, shoes are always a great investment, becaus

How It Was Styled October Date Night

Image
As in the previous post for How it was styled October Edition, you will  see that a classic white shirt is the inspiration for my second look as it was in my first look. This second look was actually worn for a date night with the hubby!  I am wearing a few more accessories with this look, which actually makes it very different from the first look that was  based on a  denim jumper dress. I felt very comfortable in this look because we all know, when we're going on a date with our husbands or boyfriends, we definitely want to look as cute as possible!   This look has a lot of Fall  in it with the denim vest, classic white shirt, and red pants with zipper accents on both sides.  Take a look at how I styled this outfit, for this post, when you're a busy wife and mother you live in pants. I am just glad that these were comfortable and had zipper accents.... LOL Hugs, Frederica "Always remember to live, The Ultimate Life" Fashion Deta

How It Was Styled October Mom's Night Out

Have you ever wished that Fall could become Summer? Or Summer could become Fall? Well, with a couple of tips and tricks your wardrobe will never know the difference. You may only notice the difference, if you concentrate on the changing seasons really, really  hard. Luckily, Chicago weather has cooperated pretty well up until October this year.  It almost still  feels like Summer instead of Fall, right now.  So, with that in mind it's been really easy to transition some of my favorite pieces into Fall. The new season is not always about spending a lot on an entirely new wardrobe but adding to some of your key pieces that will easily withstand any trend. For this edition of How it was styled October Edition, my focal point is basically centered around the key piece which is a classic white shirt. A white shirt is a classic that every woman needs in her closet, you can wear it with basically anything and feel like you are ready to go just about anywhere. Take a look at some of
