Refocus

Sometimes we get caught up with all the challenges of life and it’s not until either something drastic happens or we have had enough, that we ask ourselves, “How did I get here?” When you examine your life, you are where you are based off of the choices you’ve made whether good or bad. However, when you have made the wrong decisions, it’s about how you respond that will determine what happens next. 

 I used to tell my team, “control your controllables.” Meaning, you decide where your next move will be. Don’t get down and dishearten about what happen or could have been, but focus on what can be. Redirect your way of thinking and find out what your true purpose is. Do what makes sense and most importantly, do what makes you happy. #purposefilled

Something Good

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! πŸ˜‰ 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? πŸ˜† 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 😘.

Nothing New

It’s always great we you can pull out an old piece of yours and pair it with another old piece and still create an awesome look! I am all about that life, especially when you are a mom of three and a wife with a whole house and responsibilities like myself. It’s not easy to just “splurge” on yourself when you want to. That’s why it’s important to invest in the right key pieces when it comes to your wardrobe. 

It’s not always about paying a lot to have the best quality in a product because I have bought some designer brands that were the cutest styles made out of the cheapest of fabrics. Even worse, after 2-3 wears, I am left with a pilling garment! When buying the right pieces, making sure to rotate them are also key because like anything you may love, you don’t want over use and have to throw it out sooner than later!

Cozy ChΓ­c

The weather has been on both sides of the spectrum recently and honestly that’s alright by me. I love feeling warm and cozy and this shawl sweater I received as a birthday gift from the kids is just that! It also went perfect with my favorite pants that I don’t get to wear often because it is actually too big when I am not trying to lose baby weight 😁.

Another day, Another Dress

I love wearing dresses in the summer especially during this summer heat! On this day I am modeling a cotton tube stripped dress that was a steal of a deal at H&M (like $8)! I decided to belt it with a cardigan to give it more of a “work”/”church” appropriate look. Next throwing on my favorite pair of sandals and my look is complete!

The Shirt Dress

Today was all about being casual chΓ­c when I thought about this “earthy” look! This is great with a sweater for wear to work or an indoor business function where it’s cooler or without when it’s time for some fun in the sun! Shirt dresses are a definite must have for the season and no girl’s closet should be without one!
