2019 The Year of Change…

ee395727-8a68-45ac-8973-f1b7a53ff927

Hello friends, boy have I miss you guys. I have had so many things going on with my life, I just couldn’t find the time to write a blog posts. You know… from time to time, it’s great to take a step back to re-evaluate things. That’s exactly what I’ve done, and I like to think I’m better and ready to tackle what 2019 will bring me. 

2018, was a really hard year for me if I must be honest. I battle things I thought I had left behind years ago. So, let’s get into it! A few years back I talked about my battle with depression. The thing about depression it never truly goes away, you just try and deal with things differently. That’s what I thought I was doing, when I realized that I was sinking yet again. 

I started to gain weight, and just didn’t like the person looking back at me in the mirror. I often thought, girl you have a lot to be thankful for, why dwell on the negative. I would stay in my room, and stair at the walls in disbelief that this was my Life. I spent a great deal of time on social media to try and escape from things going on in my life. The thing with that though was, that didn’t help my situation it only made it worse. 

I found that nothing was really making me happy anymore. I didn’t want to shop, and definitely didn’t want to take photos. I saw more death in my family in 2018, and it hit me so hard. I thought how will I go on… how can I pick myself up and keep pushing. Because I knew in the end, I was a survivor and God had bigger plans for me. The funniest thing was, I was getting older and I’ve yet to live to my full potential. When will I get it all the way together? Instead of continuing down that road, I turned to someone I will call my angel. 

Let’s just say this person came into my life at the right time. My fear was having so many things going around in my head and not being able to share them with anyone. I now had an outlet, and I could feel things starting to get better. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still not the person I would like to be, I’m just dealing with it day by day. My angel made me see that my life had meaning.

Depression will have you thinking that your life is worthless, and no one really wants to know how things are going in your life. That is probably the biggest misconception EVER. My angel showed me that was so not true. I knew deep inside that I had beat this battle before, and I would beat it again. All my life, I’ve had conversations with God daily, but this day was different. My grandmother appeared and told me things may not always go my way, but just keep fighting the fight and tell the DEVIL not today. 

I have claimed that 2019, will be the year I live to my full potential. I will not neglect myself anymore. I will be more consistent with things that make me happy. I will get back to the girl that SMILES, and know that smile is REAL. I will be open and honest because my TRUTH could change someone else. So… here’s to a phenomenal year. 

Until next time,

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!

Falling for burgundy…

Friday was day full of fun and excitement. I did a little Fall shopping, and that always seem to get me excited. I just wish Houston would get the memo on Fall, so I can finally wear some of my finds. JCPenney Fall line is one I can really get into, starting with the dress I’m wearing today. The fact that burgundy is a must Fall color, had me feeling some type of way. The color is so vibrant and rich. I think it’s one of the main reasons I fell in love with this dress.

I opted to wear my burgundy mules, and how cute is my burgundy bag. Didn’t I tell you I love this color… Also I knew my rose gold necklace would be a perfect addition, and finally my three toned Austin earrings completed the look, and your girl was ready. Until next time have a great day!

Crochet LBD…

 

IMG_4355

Stopping in on this beautiful Friday to share with you my new favorite LBD. About a week or so ago, I shared with you my Ivory Crochet Dress from Charming Charlie, well guess what I had no idea it came in black. Well I couldn’t deny her a home, so I had to purchase her. In my opinion, Little black dresses can be so much fun to style, because I feel it’s the only color that you can dress up or down and still look flawless. I added a little color with the shoes, bag, and earrings. The remainder of my accessories were silver, can never go wrong with silver. Remember me saying, when I find something I like in different colors, I buy them all. This black number was no exception. So tell me what do you like most about LBD?

Ivory Crochet Dress…

IMG_3820When I saw this dress I was immediately drawn to it. The crochet pattern was so feminine, I knew it was coming home with me. I love dresses that scream girly, and she didn’t disappoint. The OTS look was keeping with my current obsession. Can you see all the details? From the patterns, to the fresh color, what’s not to love? I received so many compliments on this number, that solidified it was a Winner. The dress is lined, and I didn’t have to worry about anything showing. Charming Charlie is the store of all stores, from accessories to clothes, and this dress comes in black too. So, if you have never visited them, now would be a good time. I decided to pair it with pink accessories. The pink really brought the entire look together. How can you go wrong with pink? What are some of your go to colors for accessories?
