I love helping people feel good by looking great on the outside and boosting their confidence. However, notice I said “boosting.” Having self confidence in my opinion is not something that a person gives you, but helps you to expose what you already possess. It’s about being able to recognize it and to be willing to make some changes.
Change is not something that is always something easy to do, yet it needs to be done in order for you to grow and reach your potential. At the end of the day, I can help you look like a million bucks, but if you don’t think you are worth it, no one will believe you are either. You need to tap into the things that make you feel alive and worth living.
Be encouraged by motivational messages from speakers like Lisa Nichols and Tony Robbins and others. If all else fails, you have the Word of God. The Bible is your instruction for life and in it you can find encouragement. Pray and ask God who He has called you to be and don’t be afraid to be bold and be confident walking in it!
Mannnn, how I miss not having to worry about the humidity and frizzing much less do anything to my hair with these faux locs. I also didn’t mind all the lovely compliments too! 😉 For years I have had people tell me my hair would be great for locking. I can say I fell in love with this style and it suits me however, don’t look for me locking my actual hair anytime soon folks!
I’m trying to plan the next time to do them between work, house work and watching my little buggers (last time it literally was an all day event with me doing them)! Anyone want to help? 😆 I’m also calling out my sister in law Jolita Fountain for the challenge to tag team once again (Oh and by the way she makes faux loc wigs too if your interested)!!!!! If not this style, I’m looking for a fun up do, any ideas????
Shout outs to my little man Lamar for being my photographer 😘.

This past Sunday was the reveal of Victoria Beckham’s collobration with Target in store and it was pretty cool! Prior to hitting my local Target I checked out Beckham’s designs online so I had an idea of what I would be seeing. I definitely think that the clothes online did not do the items in store justice! Being able to view the merchandise in person allows you to try it on and most importantly, feel what the fabrication is like.
The collection itself was a nice welcome into Spring providing fresh colors that popped along with prints that brought about the beauty of Nature. Even though I appreciated the ode to Nature, I’m not a fan of having insects on my clothes and neither was Olivia. She wasnt feeling the bee print and if I had to choose, I would have gone with a ladybug since they don’t sting or chase after you!
In my final observation, I liked how there were “mommy and me” outfits and could definetly see Beckham and her daughter Harper rocking a few of the styles. Especially the ones with the scalloped details. As for me, I got to try on only one dress that Olivia and I could wear together, however it was a little to short and theses hips were not made for the style. I would have tried on a couple more coordinated pieces, however the baby was crying non stop until I picked him up!
Overall, I love Beckham’s style. Kudos for her making her line affordable (price range $6-$70) and in plus sizes going up to a 3X! I did think the kids line was more enjoyable then the women’s, although the fit was about true to size. My daughter however, had to go down two sizes for fit because of how generous the cuts were and she is already tiny (she is almost 5 years old and would have needed a 3T). Nonetheless, below are a few pieces that I thought were adorable on my Muffins.
This last one is my favorite! I may have to order online since her size was not available in store. What do you think?
Like most of my titles that describe either what I am wearing or how I am feeling, this one is no different. I am literally going with the flow. At times it can be challenging trying to find what to wear as you progress in pregnancy because one day your clothes fit perfectly and the next, they don’t. Instead of getting frustrated though, turn to those easy to wear pieces that require little to no effort. In this case, you can never go wrong with a pair of black pull on pants, a fun top, a cardigan and comfortable shoes!

Can I tell you about this great buy I found at Target for only $12! I have wanted a cross back top since last year that was tastefully done and didnt show too much skin. As you can see I chose to layer today just for fun and also because I now have a bump, I didn’t want to show my belly! I think this is a perfect top for summer and can be worn in multiple ways such as blazer, shorts, denim skirt and more! So happy I found this and also at such a great buy!
