Don’t Forget Your Smile

Lately, I haven’t had the strength to write. It’s actually taking me forever to write this post and it’s so unfamiliar since I typically zone in and can write anything.

 

I’ve been doing a lot…like, running around preparing my baby sister for prom (which she absolutely slayed). I’ve been doing my church duties, friend duties, daughter duties and all the while trying to juggle my retail job, remote job, website and relentless emotional and spiritual tests. Thankfully, my list includes fun stuff, such as driving up to Canada last week for a family wedding and flying down to Georgia for another the month before. Those getaways have been so needed because I’m obsessed with my family and it brings me joy to be around them.

 

However, I am still.going.through.

10 Career Gems Every Boss Chick Should Know

I had the most awesome opportunity to attend Every Stylish Girl’s Sip N’ Slay, a networking brunch for girl bosses making moves in fashion, beauty and bidness. It was a day loaded with tasty eats, drinks and tantalizing conversation! The room was jam-packed with wisdom and I got to meet so many amazing women. Of course, I had to share those gems sprinkled all over the room with you boss babes.

Get Your Life, Even When You’re Unmotivated

There are days when you jump out out the beeeeeed, turn your swag on, take a look in the mirror and say “what’s up!” And some other days, you’ll just want to roll over.

How to Live in the Moment

Guys, remember track suits?! Not just any old kind, but Juicy track suits?! In middle school, every girl had at least one colorful pair. My recent collaboration with both Teen Vogue and Juicy Couture had me feeling nostalgic like man, “where did time go?!”

Embrace Your Bold | Sponsored by Banana Republic

My mom always tells me how shocked she is at who I am today and I always laugh.  Ya see, I used to be extremely quiet…so much so, that corny grownups would say “cat got your tongue?” almost everyday of my kid life. I also didn’t like people much…I preferred my mom and the rest of my family lol.

3 Steps to Take Charge of Your Life

I’m not a follower. I’m not easily swayed. I like being my own boss. I know what I want, how I want it…and yeah. I’m sure of myself…in a good, black girl magic kind of way. This past year, though?! I’ve been wrecked. Like literally, I’ve been facing situations that have rocked my world back to back. God has shown me time and time again there are simply things that I cannot control.

 

I can, however, take charge of how I respond to the situations I face in life and honeyyy, so can you. It’s time we redefine taking charge of our lives. Let’s make this quick and easy, shall we?

Everyone Won’t Always Like You & That’s Okay

I’ve never been a people pleaser so it has always been easy for me to go about my business. To…ya know, do me regardless of what people’s opinions were. I accepted the notion “everyone won’t always like you” early.

 

This aspect of myself has only continued to blossom. I’ve always been conscious of who I was/am in Christ and representing Him in the best ways possible. So nowadays, if an issue arises, I respond right when I was wronged. Or, if I hurt anyone, I apologize. Simple. Pride isn’t necessary. A petty remark isn’t worth compromising my character in Christ.

Red Dress // Perception Is Everything

Do you guys remember when social media went crazy trying to figure out if that “the dress” was white and gold or blue and black? I went through the same thing while wearing this dress. Is it a red dress or is it orange? To me, it’s clearly red…just with an orange tint lol.

 

Perception is everything, they say. In this case, I must agree. Since we’re talking all about love this month on Adorned in Armor (be sure to catch up on this post and this one, too), I find it a must to discuss how we walk in love.

The Most Important Reasons Why You Should Love Yourself

Self-care has been one of the most blatant topics of conversation in our society lately.  It’s all about making sure your mental health is given serious attention, indulging in the things that make you happy, and appreciating who you are…especially in the state of this crazy country of ours.

 

Inevitably, when one considers self-care, self-love isn’t too far off. Because why take care of yourself if you don’t love yourself? Why work out, take bubble baths, or have that one cheat meal if you don’t love yourself?

  • Window of opportunity | There are numerous things God will put us through in order for us to get the message of WAITING and giving Him our whole hearts and attention. Breakups, feelings of purposeless and even getting the opportunity to leave home and follow Him elsewhere. Last month, when my pastor announced that there was one more spot for our church mission trip to the Dominican Republic and that everything was covered, I was like, "JESUS, THAT YOU?!" 😩 Next thing I knew, I was going through biblical training and getting my mind, spirit and suitcase right for going abroad. I've always wanted to go on mission and I know God opened up this space for me, especially at such as time as this 🙌🏾 He knew I had to get away, He knew I had to experience Him in a new way. He's going to blow my mind here, I can feel it. I'm excited to do what He has called us to do: make disciples of every nation by action and sharing the message of His relentless love.
  • The family's baby genius is going off to study in London and back at Boston U for neuroscience 😩 I'm sooo incredibly proud of all that you are. Continue to show people you can have beauty, brains, be LIT for yourself and on fire for God. Love youuuu ✨ #BU2021 #WomeninStem
  • No need to prove anything to anyone. No need to mold yourself to any expectation set. All those goals? Squash em for yourself.
  • I'm always the happiest with family and friends 🤗
