Single and Alone When All Your Friends Are In Relationships…

D9336C0E-B6D5-462F-A056-824D1988B473

This is probably the hardest post I will ever make, but here we go… It’s been six years since my last serious relationship, and at first I thought I was okay with that. Well lately I’ve been yearning to find someone to spend the rest of my life with. It’s that empty feeling, I feel sometimes. “Hard to face though” Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve gone on dates, but it never amounted to anything. Through this time, it has allowed me to work on me, so I can be the best I can be to my future King! I don’t want a man just for the sake of saying I have a man. My goal is, and has always been to have a man that will complete me.

In my quest for working on me I have also refrain from sexual intimacy. I know what you may be thinking, six years is a very long time, and OH it REALLY is. Well I suppose I put more focus on other things in my life that make me happy, and time just flew by. Trust me, I would love the opportunity to have the kind of intimacy that doesn’t end with my clothes off though. That’s very hard to find these days. I refuse to compromise myself just for that moment. I was asked by a friend don’t you like sex, my answer was of course I do. But… there is more to life than just the act itself. Can you Stimulate my mind?

As I look back on how long it’s been, I said know way it’s been that long (trust me it really has) where did the time go. However, I don’t want to wait another six years. But, when I think about it, I have zero tolerance  for BS with men. Side note: it just might end up being another six years, but I hope not. Most of the men, I’ve come across lately don’t want to take the time to get to know you. What’s up with that?? I have people say you attract what you give out, what does that really mean? I carry myself like a lady, that deserves and want more.

The fact that I haven’t been in a relationship has also brought me closer to God, and the love I have for him is one that can’t be shaken. I pray daily, but I don’t ask God to send me a man. When it’s my time, it will happen and only then. Being single and alone doesn’t have to be a death sentence. I know that’s a hard pill to swallow, especially when you may see so many of your friends in successful relationships. And who likes being a third wheel, or the only single person at gatherings? So guess what, I will just continue attended events that don’t require a date. Now at the end of the day, I would be lying if I didn’t say I was a bit envious of those in happy relationship, but my time will come. Am I the only person left in this world thats single, I do feel that way sometime. You just never know what your friends or others have gone through that got them to that level of happiness. Focusing on YOU is key!

As adults we have to make hard choices, and that means looking deep inside yourself to re-evaluate and regroup. I’m loving the WOMAN I’m becoming in this time though, and my King will love me too. In the end, I don’t need a lot to make me happy. So in essence, I do have a very fulfilling relationship, and it’s with the almighty God, he never lets me down. He accepts me with my flaws and all. He doesn’t judge me. He loves me unconditionally. He brings me the joy that I need, not what I want. I have always had faith, and believed in God, but during this time my relationship with him has truly evolved.

 If you are facing a similar situation, take this time to mediate and pray and know you are not alone. I say to all Women, don’t compromise who you are to be with a man just to say you have a man. YOU deserve more, and who doesn’t love a great love story. And always remember, being alone doesn’t mean lonely.
Until next time, have a great day!

Embroidered Denim…

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I’m coming to you to share these oh so cute embroidered jeans. Because what kind of friend would I be if I kept them all to myself. As always, doing a bit of shopping online, and was instantly drawn to the detail on the jeans. They were Gloria Vanderbilt and I hadn’t worn any of her jeans since high school. I only wished that I had sized down one, they were a little big. Nonetheless I wasn’t going to waste time sending them back. However; the colors in the jeans, I knew would be a perfect match with my burgundy cold shoulder top. These jeans would look great with a pair of sneakers, I opted to wear booties and I loved the overall look. My navy floppy hat brought the entire outfit together. Don’t you get that 70’s vibe when you see floppy hats, I know I do. These jeans are a statement piece all by themselves, that’s why any top would look great with them. So what are you waiting for get out there and get you a pair!

Let the fun begin, and by that I mean vacation. I’m always so excited when I get to do absolutely nothing. Although I have a few events planned for this week, I just plan on resting. Sharing with you today this stunning green pleated top that I paired with these gorgeous booties. But, let’s talk about these distressed jeans that I’ve had a few years, but will never go out of style. When I tell you they are extremely comfortable, they came with a pre-cuff, but I cuffed them a few more times to really showcase my booties. Until next time, have a great day!

Hello all, I know it’s been a while since my last post, but work has been keeping me very busy. Just stopping in to share this beautiful cold shoulder dress. The blend of black and white is what I loved about the dress, and not to mention the pockets.

Now that’s a major win!

This dress can be purchased at my new favorite store Stage. Although I purchased it in store at Palais Royal, I’m sure you can find her at your local Stage store. I decided to pair the dress with my black and gold belt to add a little spice to it. Now my gold necklace is one of the pieces from my shopping event with Palais Royal, isn’t she gorgeous. What about these booties though, block heels are becoming my go to style for heels. They are Very comfortable and I can’t get enough of them. What are some of your go to style heels?

Happy Monday, I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. I wish I could tell you I did something fun, well this girl had to work the entire weekend. So with that being said, I’m coming to you to share my latest find for the upcoming Fall season.
This dress has all the qualities that I look for with the pleats, the cold shoulder, and most importantly the colors are so pretty and feminine. Purple is my favorite color and I was really looking forward to pairing this dress with my new purple stain heels from DSW. Not to mention, I hadn’t worn my purple Austin earrings, so this was the perfect outfit to complete the look. Who else is looking forward to cooler temps? Who am I kidding I live in Houston, and it’s usually hot most of the year. Have a bless week.
