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!

 

 

 

 

Outfit Details 

Shirt Dress: Zara (So versatile, can be worn as a dress or even a top).  |

Booties: Dolce Vita | Lipstick: Nars| Earrings: Aurate NYC |

Remember to always have faith, stay strong, keep the positive vibes flowing, never give, never lose hope and never ever stop believing.

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!!

Holiday Style Part II

Posted on: December 23, 2016

Still looking for something to wear for the holidays thats stylish and chic.

Continue reading and seeing how I’ve styled this holiday outfit.

This holiday season has been busy and event(FULL) to say the least. I was fortunate enough to attend a few events with Town & Country. One event that was really fun was the event with Baccarat X Town & Country. The event brought together PR executives, bloggers, associates and Baccarat fans for the opening of Baccarat’s newest pop-up shop located in the Soho/West Village area. If you haven’t shopped at Baccarat before it’s definitely worth all the money. If your still looking for some last minute gifts ideas, be sure to check them out. They have the best items for your home, jewelry, decor and so much more. The evening was amazing, spent with great friends and new friends. This was the outfit I wore to the event.

Outfit Details 

All black everything will always be my go-to outfit, why you may ask? It’s chic, elegant and not to mention very classy. A simple black outfit with the right accessories is the perfect holiday outfit that’s quick, easy and simple to put together. My pop of color of the outfit would be what I wear on my feet. But still keeping it classy, chic and stylish. This is one of my favorite outfits I’ve worn this season. This black lace tunic from Zara is the perfect top to wear for any occasion. The ruffle frill sleeves makes the outfit fun, flirty and super glam. Not to mention you’d be on trend and having heads turn wherever you go. Pair it with some black skinny pants as I’ve done here, or even a pleated skirt to dress and spice up the outfit. For shoes, wear some fun bootie heels or even these velvet flats as you see here. These velvet Marc Fisher flats are my absolute favorite this season. They are super comfortable {as if your walking on air} and the velvet detail will dress up any outfit. Velvet is a material that is not only on trend, it’s sleek and chi. Something that will be around in fashion for awhile. So go grab yourself a pair, trust me you won’t be disappointed. To me, this is the perfect outfit to wear for any holiday event. It’s very elegant, classy and super chic. You’ll definitely get the “Best Dressed” award hands down!!

SFB StreetStyle Chic: Denim Style

Posted on: November 18, 2016

 

So here’s a fun fact about me– during my college days I worked at Jasmine Sola in Boston, MA. While working there, I met some great friends, learned about fashion merchandising and got first hand experience working with the various brands we carried. In addition, I found myself becoming a denim specialist. I learned about various denim designers, the different styles and what style worked for each body type. When shopping for denim, I always say, “It’s always best to try on denim, see how the fit looks and if your derriere looks great their a winner!” Aside from that if they make you feel like a million bucks then it’s a win win. During my retail days, I enjoyed seeing my customers walk out of the store happy and feeling good about themselves, and I was part of that. I’ve always had a love for fashion, but working at Jasmine Sola made me realize my passion for fashion even more.  Since working at Jasmine Sola, my love for fashion and labels have evolved over the years. I will admit, I’m always on the hunt for a fresh new pair of denim to add to my closet. My favorite jeans back then were: Seven Jeans, Joe’s, Paige and Citizens For Humanity to name a few. Nowadays, some of my fave denim brands are: Frame Denim, DL 1961, BlankNYC Jeans, and Rag and Bone.

These ones right here have become a personal favorite lately. The distressed, ripped styled make these great for a chic street style look. As you can see here, I’ve paired these jeans with a simple button down top, loafers and a scarf. Although the look was so simple it was still comfy and stylish all at the same time.  This made for the perfect outfit to walk around the streets of Edinburgh during our visit to the UK back in late August, early September. You can wear this look just about anywhere and you’ll be looking fabulous! If you want to take this look from day to night, add some killer heels, a moto jacket and your favorite lipstick for a pop of color. And just like that you’ll be looking like a badass fashionista ready to hit the town! (Shop my favorites for a night time glam look) Shop my Look below.
