My blog is turning 2 this month and I am so excited!!! I can’t believe this is my second blogiversary and that I’ve actually hung in there. I’ve even had the pleasure of (virtually) meeting such amazing people along this journey! Some people may think two years strong is no big deal, and that it takes YEARS to accomplish dreams. The thing is, I’ve literally quit every sport and almost every activity my mom thought I’d would be interested in. From dance to piano and basketball, I was never all in. Every thing that got a little tough and required practice to excel I didn’t want to take part in it. I was lazy and uninterested and I let the fear...

Now Trending: Guide to Not Giving A Fu**

In case you haven’t heard, 90’s fashion is back in full force. I’m one of those people that love trends, I’ll admit it and I’m not ashamed! I think some people feel good announcing to the world “I’m not into trends,” or “I set my own trends,” but honestly all it does is garner an extreme side eye combined with a thought of how great that is for you. I have so much fun predicting the next trend while mixing and matching the current with my personal style, it’s what I live for. Everything is recycled, nothing is 100% original anymore, and that’s life. All we can do is pay homage to what came before us and incorporate a modern flair...

Grown Woman

As I get older, I have noticed a certain element of transformation taking place from the inside out. On the inside, I have struggled with deep rooted habits that have done nothing but caused emotional, mental and physical havoc. Most of us don’t even notice our faults and need assistance from others to guide us on how to be the best person we can be. But, what if we don’t have that special someone in our lives willing to tell us the truth out of pure love? The only other person we have to depend on is ourselves. We are the driving force of becoming the person we want to be and going where we’ve always dreamed. When we love...

The Boots You Need in Your Life This Fall

It’s that time of year again and I’m so excited to share the boots I have my eyes on for fall! Of course I couldn’t bring any regular shmegular (Cardi B voice), so I’ve rounded up every style on my wish list that is in dire need of our love and affection! I cant believe the strides companies are making. Two years ago styles like these were just a dream in larger women’s sizes! Though we still have a long way to go, fall/winter 2017 will be a game changer. You know our sizes go quickly so don’t wait too long! Direct link for each style provided below. Wesson Block Heel Bootie (Moroccan Blue Velvet) Lucky Brand Wesson II Studded Bootie (Black...

Rebel with a Cause

Have you ever just wanted to be "there" already, wherever that is? Growing up I wanted to be a million and one things but I've always felt like the under dog, unappreciated and overlooked. I also didn't have much confindence in myself, resulting in quitting when things got tough. I simply didn't want to work hard and was impatient to develop the necessary skills to be great at what I thought I wanted. Currently I've been battling the idea of my dreams being too big. Thoughts creep into my mind like I'm not making progress fast enough, I'll never get to where I want to be in life and who am I to think I'm that talented anyway? I retreat back...
