CoCo Curvy to Haute CoCo

Remember when I posted about me switching some things up on here! Well with the new year vastly approaching I decided to take the first step and that is changing the my blog name!! Yay me!! I have been going back and forth trying to come up with something cleaver yet me! Without further a due welcome to Haute CoCo!

Here’s why I choose the name. I consider myself to be a very fashionable person (well at least in my opinion). I mean I live fashion, beauty, home decor! It puts me in a happy place. CoCo is a little nick name I gave myself. My first name is Ashley but Haute LeLe didn’t fit me so I went with my middle name Nicole (hints the CoCo)! Plus if you haven’t noticed I’m a chocolate girl! The color of CoCo get it lol!

I have neglected this blog to the fullest! During the Summer months at work we are so swamped that I don’t even have time to think. Once I get home I’m so burned out all I want to do is relax my mind and hang out with my love. Now that we are in our slow season its time for me to get back on it and keep my momentum up. I have some great ideas for this little weblog space of mine and I can wait to share it with you! So please stay tuned!

Girls Night Out

girls nightI’m super excited because on Sunday I’m going out to dinner with four of my really good friends whom I have not seen in a while! When life happens and we get older you sometimes tend to become busy with your family or career and don’t get the chance to connect with your girl friends that often.  I love the fact that we can all come together and pick up right where we left off.

girls friends

I believe having a circle of friends is very important. Being able to talk to and relate to other woman is very therapeutic. On Sunday I’m going to suggest that we turn this girls night out into  a monthly ritual! It will give me an excuse to get CUTE, FLY, and FABULOUS and enjoy the company of my girlfriends. And I can’t forget to post some photos of my out fit of the night! But you must stay tuned for that.

Love Coco

Hello 2013

With the year ending and a new one beginning I wanted to wish all my followers and readers a Happy New Year! nye

2012 like any year had its ups and downs but what matters the most is how we have overcame the trials made it through. So continue to strive for what makes you happy and give little attention to what makes you sad. Forgive those who hate on you and embrace those who love on you. Every day we wake up is a blessing from our Grand Creator and should not be taken lightly. We don’t have to wait for the clock to strike 12 to become a better person all we have to do is begin right where we stand. Change doesn’t come easy but a change for the better is so very worth it! We can only hold ourselves back from greatness no else holds that power but you! So chose to be excellent in all you do. Put LOVE in everything that you do and I promise you, you will never be disappointed!

Farewell 2012, Welcome 2013

Love & Kisses -Coco

Happy 2013 Dolls!

Nude Heels

As I mentioned in my previous post I did some shopping this weekend! We took a trip to our local mall and visited our friends at Bath and Body Works ( they are having their semi annual sale right now), Victoria Secret, Express Men (for Mr. RLE), Macy’s, and Last but certainly not least Torrid.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to purchase when I walked inside. They are currently having their big up to 60% off sale so I wasn’t leaving empty handed! When my eyes scanned the store I spotted my new beauties! I have been in need of a classic simple yet chic Nude Heel and these babies fits the description! They are comfy too! A wardrobe staple for sure!
