SFB: Faith+ Positivity+ The Little Things in Life

Posted on: September 10, 2018

 

 

Life can throw us a lot of curve balls and we all continue to fight battles each and every single day. For some of us, this can deter us from moving forward, where we feel less  motivated in doing just about everything. My advice to you all and I’ve always continued to say this—–NEVER GIVE UP. Trust me I know it is easier said than done, trust me I know this all too well and I get it. Sometimes we think simple fixes can make things better, but we mustn’t look for material things or other things to make things better. It’s the little things in life that should help us keep moving forward. It’s starts with this and for some of us we underestimate how powerful this can help us. We all experience various life challenges and through these battles and difficulties we must keep our faith, and believe in the power of prayer.  I know all too well, that with all of life challenges that we go through, it’s so easy to lose our faith and hope. Sometimes our faith comes in waves because we go through all these ups and downs in life which makes us wonder and question our faith and even God. We all want the answers, we all want immediate results. But unfortunately, life doesn’t work out that way. But that doesn’t mean that things can’t happen, but not as immediate as we would like or hope.

 

What we must always remember, it’s all about timing and in God’s time. God hasn’t forgotten us, he is with us and he hears our prayers and thoughts, we must never forget that.  I also hold God and my faith as the number one driving force in my life that has kept me going in all aspects of my life.  In addition to the support of my love, family and friends. They have been the people in my life, the reason why I’m motivated to keep going. Like all of us, I am human, and I can be the first to admit that I have lost my faith at times. But without fail God has shown me in more ways than one that he is with me. I have lived by this scripture from 2 Corinthians 5:7 —-  I will walk by faith even when I cannot see…. I truly believe there are signs everywhere and he is with us, guiding us and showing us even when we can’t see it he is. We must remember that. What I will leave you with is,  remain strong even when it’s tough. Stay positive, even when there are things leading you to think or act otherwise. Pray for peace, pray for hope, protection to keep that positivity and good energy and vibes flowing in your life. Be kind always. Spread love in everything you do. Lastly, keep pushing, keep going. Never lose hope, never give up and never stop believing.

 

Here are some of my words, psalms and bible scriptures that have continued to stay with me and help me throughout my life:

I will walk by faith, even when I cannot see… 2 Corinthians 5:7

Psalms 23

Psalms 91 for Protection

Psalms 37:4

Corinthians 13-4

Psalms 46:5

Proverbs 3:1-12

Luke 11:1-54

Whatever you believe in, keep that and hold onto to that. It will help you during all of life challenges. Stay inspired, empowered, motivated and always keep the faith. Stay positive!

Posted on: May 5, 2017

Happy Fri-Yay and Happy Cinco De Mayo Love!!

I love Fridays, I mean who doesn’t love FRIDAYS!

Well, for starters it’s the end of the work week and at my office we can dress down or casual. Not to mention, Fridays are the days when the hubs and I go out for Date night. So, even though it may be casual Fridays at the office, with it being date night, it makes Fridays even sweeter! Plus, it’s an excuse to get a little dressed up while still being a little office casual. For this look here, I mixed some high and low fashion to create this office casual/date night ready outfit. I’m getting a little flirty on this Cinco de Mayo TGIF not to mention this outfit screams flirty yet tasteful chic vibes. Another reason why I’m looking forward to this Friday, it’s my Husband’s birthday weekend. So, let the celebrations and festivities begin! Date nights are my fave time too, no matter what we do it’s always nice to enjoy that time with one another.  It’s the perfect way to unwind after the work week, reconnect, reflect and enjoy the evening. What’s not to love!!

For my outfit, although it’s a simple look, it works for both the office and for after work outings. No matter where you wear this look, you’ll be looking fierce and fly while turning heads wherever you go. One things for sure when it comes to shopping for me, I always look for pieces that make for great staples for my wardrobe. Pieces that are versatile and work well with styling for any particular season. For this look, I took a current favorite– this white lace-up top and created this fun, flirty office ready and after work outfit.

Here, I styled this super cute white lace-up top from Tobi.com with a blush leather jacket and denim jeans.  All of these pieces paired together make the perfect Spring outfit. I love this look so much I felt like Beyonce, and I was definitely feelin’ myself — very edgy, fashionable and flirty.

High/Low Fashion: Sporty Biker Chic Vibes

Posted on: April 7, 2017


Enjoying a lovely Saturday with these two beauties Loren from @EnlightenedbyBravery (Gigi New York Clutch)  and Amanda from @Everythinghurts.me (Gigi New York Satchel)

I must say this was one of my FAVE outfits I styled for a fun outing with my girlfriends. It’s the perfect casual chic outfit that’s still comfortable, simple yet so fashionable all at the same time. I love to mix high and low fashions to create such a comfortable look that’s great for a day out with the ladies. This look is great for any outing really, especially if you still want to look stylish but still comfy. What’s great about this outfit, everything seen on me are great transitional pieces for the Fall or even Spring. I say Fall because the olive leather jacket is a great piece to wear in the Fall for it’s deep autumn color tones plus you can style this with just about any outfit. The pops of colors and light weight garments I wore would be perfect for a Spring day. No matter how or when you you wear an outfit like I did here, you’ll be so comfy and looking so fly everywhere you go! I always strive for comfort first, but of course I keep it classy, stylish and always chic!

This leather jacket has to be one of my fave jackets at the moment. I absolutely love the Olive green color with it’s biker style details, it’s the perfect balance between edgy and chic. Another plus, not only does it look amazing it’s super affordable. My wedge Nike sneakers I wore were are not only   super cute but comfortable as well. They give me a little height but yet I don’t feel any discomfort at all unlike other wedge sneakers. I’ve experienced discomfort with other wedge sneakers before.  Where the sneakers were purely for style and very rarely do I where them now. But these babies I could walk in them for hours and my feet don’t hurt at all. As for my handbags, and if you don’t know by now, I’m a HUGE handbag LOVER which goes hand in hand with my love for shoes. But those two topics will be saved for another post coming VERY SOON! For more details on this look, shop my look below. As always stay fashionably FABULOUS loves!!
