Hey guys! So, I wanted to catch you all up to speed with everything going on with Pumps + Pouts and more. Also, I wanted to take some time to get feedback from my readers so I can get a better understanding of what you’d like to see more of. At the end of the day, it’s all about you! I love blogging and I have a ton of fun doing it, but I also want to make sure that you’re enjoying the content that  I’m sharing as well.



First, I am officially an LLC! Pumps and Pouts, LLC finally went into effect last week. And if you haven’t heard, via IG (@pumpsandpouts), I am opening an online store! No biggie, just a couple of cool things I thought you guys would be interested in. Who am I kidding? I’m super excited about what I’m going to be selling soon! So excited, I’m hosting a little giveaway for it (click here to enter)! But there are only 2 days left to enter, the grand opening is this upcoming Monday at 12 PM/ET!


So what am I selling? Well, Shop Pumps + Pouts will consist of 3 small boutiques: The P+P Shoppe, Atunlo, and Currently Crafted. Here’s what each one will carry.

1. The P+P Shoppe

The P+P Shoppe is my merch store that will carry fun and expressive apparel, accessories and home decor. They will be made to order and made with love!

2. Atunlo

Atunlo, which means “recycle” in Yoruba, are all things that I once loved and now need a new forever home.

3. Currently Crafted

Currently Crafted is my DIY shop. I’ll make cools stuff just for you! They will also be made to order and made with love.



In other news, if you haven’t also heard, I’m getting married! My fiancé popped the question back in February of this year on our trip to Key West. However, we’ve been so busy and slow-moving on the planning process. But I think we’re (well, I since he’s not helping much with planning, but rather just showing up to altar lol) starting to gather ideas and things on a roll. My cousin, owner/event planner of Swanky Rose Events, is going to be helping me plan the entire thing. So thank goodness I have her!


I will be adding a new wedding section to the lifestyle tab to keep you post on our planning adventure. I really wanted to create this because I’ve learned HOW EXPENSIVE weddings can be, and that there are ways to plan an awesome wedding at any budget! Personally, I don’t want to spend a ton of money on a wedding because I feel like that could go towards a new house, traveling, or a new walk-in closet (hint, hint lol ? ). So I’d like to keep our wedding around $6k. It’s going to be a challenge, but I’m excited to take it on and put my DIY skills to use. All my years of art school are finally getting put to use! But I’ll be sharing inspiration, tips, and documenting my experience along the way.


I’m super excited about all these major life changes I have going on, and can’t wait to share my journey on both! So, now it’s your turn. Tell me what you have loved seeing so far, or what you’d like to see a little less of. I’m all ears and hope to continue delivering content that you really like and want to share with your friends!
