Happy Monday y'all! My blog being my business, a laptop and a good camera are must-haves! From editing pictures, writing blogposts , posting on social media, to sending emails, technology plays a huge role in my everyday life. That's why I am excited to be partnering up with @intel for their #SHEOWNSIT campaign! The campaign celebrates female business owners and and entrepreneurs and allows them to share their success stories 🙌🏾 Of course blogging is a lot more than just taking photos, sharing beautiful content, and getting free stuff...lol; it's also hustling hard to get brands to take you seriously and pay you for services; it means spending early mornings/ long nights for us mommy bloggers, and finding a good photographer if your hubby/bf is not one 🙄 or taking self portraits which can also be a pain. But I enjoy sharing and inspiring you all and am so grateful for the opportunities to work with awesome brands and all the wonderful connections I've made with so many amazing people!😍 I especially love the freedom to be my own boss and make my own hours anywhere I am 🙌🏾😎 Be bold and Follow your dreams guys! The sky should be the only limit because women can do it all today and that is so empowering 💪🏾 Live in your purspose and your life will never be the same!

I recently read the book "Four Agreements" and it talks about how we're constantly in self sabotage mode. We talk to our selves as if we are incapable of happiness, unworthy of love, and we deserve everything bad that happens to us. The moment we slightly feel worthy and confident someone else reminds us that we are then too arrogant, or we need to go back to feeling incapable. The person inside you is the one who deserves the love, deserves the praise, deserves the smile, deserves it all because you are the only one that can love yourself the most. Most of us don't love ourselves. Self-love, self-worth is not taught. It's your right to love YOU. The more you do, the more others will. I cant even begin to tell you how this book has opened my eyes to such simple thoughts💕 📷@csmartfx @aletheaflowers ..
Hope everyone had a great day! Have you checked out my latest blog post "Perfectly Me" featuring this beautiful cardi from my #Artex spring collection that I collaborated on with @sexyplus? Here's a little video showing off the amazing details. Click the link in my bio for your bed time reading 😉🌸.
Captured almost two weeks ago... I finally graduated UDC as a Fashion Merchandising Major. 🙌🏽👩🏽🎓 Almost 4 years ago before I started this program I knew that I always wanted to be on the business side of fashion. #coinminstry What that business was ? 🤷🏾♀️ I had no clue . Today I can proudly say I'm most interested in Digital Marketing and connecting brands with consumers via their experience online. Our journeys through life don't last forever so submerge and infatuate yourself with every experience while you can . Next Stop @scaddotedu 📍
Dressing up was always one of my favorite activities when I was younger. Those days generally involved past recital costumes and my mother's past gowns from the '80s. I might be older now, but luckily I still get to dress up in beautiful clothes and I actually have places to wear them! That's kind of how I feel in this amazing skirt and sweater! Totally dressed up and everywhere to go!
✨let's be real✨#sponsored i only (occasionally) work out so i can wear ivy park tees and pink sneakers 😂 ok so a bunch of you have asked me to review @skinnycoffeeclub - now that it's been 28 days since i've started using the product i'm ready to give my honest opinion!
1️⃣unlike regular coffee, i experience zero bloat
2️⃣@skinnycoffeeclub contains less caffeine than traditional coffee but amazingly i get so much energy after i drink it!
3️⃣very economical and cute packaging!
4️⃣this is the only con. i love dark coffee ☕️ and the taste of the skinny coffee isn't as strong as i would prefer! however, if you're looking to shed a few pounds and get some extra energy, i def recommend giving @skinnycoffeeclub a try! use code KrisJoy for 20% off 😊
THROWBACK to my first blog fashion shoot! **Long Caption Alert too, but worth the read I swear**In 2012 I completely quit my management job in the fashion industry. While I looked for other employment opportunities, I wanted a way to maintain my connection with the fashion world, I wanted to reach out to women beyond the stores I worked in and help them feel as good as my loyal customers did. So while in-between jobs, I managed to start what would become my long term career. While my blog wasn’t titled XoXo,B at the time, and I certainly wasn’t making ends meet with my blog, I didn’t care, it helped me feel successful even when I wasn’t nailing interviews. The connections I have made, the amazing people who have supported me since day one, the mentors who continually educate me on ways to make my blog more successful, I had no idea all these things would come to me, just by taking a leap of faith and writing about my life & outfits. Everyday I feel like I own it more and more, which is why I LOVE how @intel is celebrating women in business with the #SHEOWNSIT campaign.

I was dragging today, until one of my oldest friends @carly_t_davis texted and reminded me of tonight! My Monday nights just got better again. The Bachelorette is back! Who's excited?! I am so ready for tears, fights, final roses, and lame introductions! Reality at its best! How awesome is this paisley jumpsuit from @sloanandbri. It seriously is so flattering and comfortable. I highly recommend! #getthelook#getinspired#getinmycloset#bachelornation#ootd#ootdfashion#sloanandbri#jumpsuit#paisley
Happy Monday! Buying lace up shoes is all fun and games until you have to actually put them on 😂 !! But it's 🍕 night so the complaining stops there! These @justfabonline espadrilles are 😍 and comfy too!
