Living Room Make Over On a Budget with Target Style and H&M Home

After almost a two year hiatus the Home Decor bug has hit me again. There are sooo many things I’d love to be able to do to our home, you know like upgrading our 1950’s pink and black bathroom, but as we continue to tackle our student loans we just don’t have the additional $10K contractors are asking for to completely redo it.  We’ll see in theory we do, but I’d more rather be debt free than have a pretty bathroom to use. The first room I decided to do a mini makeover on was our living room because I…

I’ve Been A Bold Girl This Year

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ For this entire year, I’ve been sharing great stories on how I’ve been bringing out the bold in my life. I was nervous about 2016, but for me, this year has been full of wins. I stepped out on faith and went after the things that I wanted.

This is the time of year where I Breathe Deep.

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ Self Care. It’s important. It’s typical for entrepreneurs to go into overdrive at the end of the year. The fourth quarter is one of the busiest times of the season and encompasses two mega holidays. We’re so busy trying to keep up, maintain, and get better that we forget we can’t keep pouring out greatness if our greatness tank is empty. During this time of year I wind down and take the time to reflect on the bold moves I made in the months earlier.…

On the other hand,it takes some intense planning and saving to make sure that I’ve coordinated great items that will work well together for the…

Rock your Favorite Shoes Without Worry with Amopé!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amopé™. Opinions and text are all mine.#Amope #Shoelove How many times have you gone into your closet and grabbed a pair of shoes that you haven’t worn in a long time? Only to realize why you haven’t worn said shoes in a long time? If it’s too many to count you’re not alone. Right now I have a closet full of gorgeous, wonderful shoes that I never wear because they are constantly throwing some type of shade/disrespect to my feet whenever I put them on. Yea there are tons…

Don’t Be Afraid to Standout!

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ #Bringoutthebold Personal style is so important especially if you’re a blogger or an entrepreneur. You want your brand to stand out and be immediately identifiable among everyone else’s. This is why I use consistent colors and fonts on both this Blog BeingMelody as well as Broke on Purpose.  While my blogging color scheme might be the same my personal style is not monotonous at all. I’m pretty limited with my wardrobe due to my workplace rules and regulations I try to play it up and…
