2018 Vibes..




My blog has been filled with outfit of the day posts and wish lists from some of my favorite stores from week to week, overall this blog hasn't grown and has been extremely repetitive. In the beginning my blog was created around style, fashion, inspiration and lifestyle and I must admit I'm a bit bored. If something isn't growing it is then time for change

This blog, 'Black On The Rocks' will take on a totally different vibe and will consist of what's going on in my head. It will now range from my personal style on Sunday's and Thursday's (titled "OOTD..."), Music Monday (discussing my favorite artists and cool albums I listen to from Jazz, Hip-Hop, and everything in between), Talk Tuesday (venting what's been on my mind and a bit of poetry by yours truly here and there), Wow Wednesday (ranging from architecture to dope finds on the web). I want this blog to be an expression of who I am, to make this site a bit more personal that will have something for everyone.   

This site will no longer be, in my opinion, a cookie cutter blog site. I will no longer try to fit the mold of what everyone else is doing. I thought I was supposed to post my favorite skin care products, and wish lists from H&M, and holiday posts because that's what some of my favorite blog sites were doing (which is perfectly fine, it's just not ME). I became lost in the norm when the norm genuinely makes me uncomfortable. I had the goal to win a blog award of some sort but how can you achieve that when you're not being true to self? That is now my new goal of 2018. It took me a minute but I finally got it right. I know exactly what I'm supposed to be doing... 


2018. 



With love, 
Key

The Christmas Kickback

This year I'll be hosting my first Christmas dinner called 'Christmas Kickback' where a few of my close ones come over and open gifts, listen to music and play games.

Down below I linked the things you'll need for hosting your own Christmas party, whether last minute or some things to add to your festivities! Shop your inexpensive items below.

OOTD: Giving Sweatpants Style

This look started off with just the two piece sweatpants set but while standing in the mirror the look felt incomplete. That has been my struggle lately, could the look I'm going for use more or less? So I decided to add this denim tan oversized men's jacket to give it a bit of color and personal style. I love a good baggy oversized piece to compliment and add a bit of funk to the rest of the look. I'm all for dressing up and throwing on a pair of heels but I'll choose baggy clothes any day. Shop my very affordable and relaxed yet cool look down below.

OOTD: Mules In Fall

I love a good blouse and a nice pair of denim jeans. Today's look was paired with my black mules from Forever 21 which are one of my more comfortable pair of heels. This look called for a red lip so of course I reached for my Fenty Beauty lip paint!! Shop my look down below.

The Puffer Coat

This coat reminds me so much of my childhood. The huge puffy coat that your mother bought you that you didn't like because it swallowed you up and was uncomfortable. But looking back on my childhood this coat was actually pretty fly! I love how fashion always makes a full circle so I can style pieces from back in the day making them more current. Shop this cool black high neck puffer coat down below. Tomorrow I'll post how I'd style this beauty if I owned one.

Fenty Beauty

Rihanna can do no wrong! I mean am I right or am I right?! First she blew us away with her Fenty line with a huge range of foundation shades, then she released her Galaxy Collection and now this Stunna Lip Paint in 'Uncensored'! It goes on wet and dries matte which I LOVE! There's nothing like a matte finish! Oh and the packaging! Can we take a minute and discuss how elegant the packaging is. I love the soft gold wand with the font "Fenty Beauty" along the side.

 You know how you get a new lipstick and it says it's "long lasting" buy it's really not?! You will not have that problem with this lipstick. I wore this lip paint on my birthday and was complimented on how the lipstick still looked great after a night of eating and drinking!! 

Shop this Stunna shade and see for yourself!

Shop: Menswear

Being a tomboy at heart and mentally stuck in the 80s/90s my most favorite thing to style is menswear! I love the baggy look balancing it out with fitted pieces. Their clothes are so much more comfier than ours and easier to layer. My favorite menswear piece to style is outwear -a loose fitting top with a more feminine look on the bottom! Down below I styled a look around a mans Parka jacket. Shop down below!
