HAPPY NEW YEAR | 2016: Year of Revelation

Happy New Year!

 

I, for one, am particularly happy 2017 is here. 2016 went by rather fast but it was the most difficult time of my life. I experienced so much pain this year…in a way that I didn’t even know was possible.

FAST FASHION

I find inspiration everywhere, especially when it comes to clothes. You know me, I like connecting the smallest things to real life situations. But when I looked at my outfit after I shot these looks, I had no idea what I was going to talk to you guys about.

 

Until I saw that pretty much everything I was wearing was fast fashion. It was quite a discovery haha. There’s nothing wrong with that, trust me. I love my luxury and fast retailers just the same. However, I just found it interesting how the “fast fashion” notion came to mind. It was right on time.

In Search of the Sun

I’ve professed my hatred for the summer season many times but I do love the sun. Not when it’s scorching hot, but yeah, I love it. I actually have a thing for the sky in general. If you catch me on a walk, you’ll see me with my head cocked back and eyes wide, enthralled by the infinite masterpiece God painted.

 

Now that Daylight Savings have come upon us, I appreciate the extra hour (of sleep) but I’ll forever be dissatisfied with how little time we have to see the sun in all its glory.

Pray for Haiti, Donate to Haiti

“Red and yellow, black and white, we are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.”

 

My mother used to sing this to me all the time. My siblings and I even had a tape cassette and a book filled with the lyrics and children of all different ethnicities vibrantly displayed. They were smiling, they were all holding hands.

Feel It All And Still Flourish On

I know you’re grieved. Angered. Hurt. Disgruntled. Maybe even feeling betrayed. Plainly, you are heartbroken over the hate that permeates this country. And I encourage beseech you to feel it. Feel it all. You have all the right to feel any or all of those things — no permission necessary. Don’t lament that you feel this way in the first place.

You are human.

Walking in the Light of Authority

I’ve always been sure of myself. Well, actually, it kicked in while in high school. But even when I was a super shy girl, I was matter-of-fact when I decided to speak up. You know that quote: Keep your heads, heels and standards high? Yeah, that’s totally me.

Hey, hi, hellooooo! I received so much feedback from my last WSP recap, that I figured I should post some more experiences with you all! I think I’ll be doing these every two weeks – I would say once a week but honestly, sometimes I just…don’t wanna! haha But anyway, where to begin?

Oh yes, Monday.

In my Literary History class, we had to choose a work to write a research paper about. My professor was going down the list, briefly explaining the poems and essays. I heard one that piqued my interest and was SO excited. Nerd alert? Maybe. But, who cares?

  • Have you ever been told to keep oil far away from your body? Whether it had been a beauty counter rep telling you, your doctor or your mama, we all have! Could be natural oils or chicken grease 😂 To us women, all kinds of oil are a no go because oil = breakouts, right? Wrong. Oil can actually work wonders for your skin! I found the BEST face oil (@paiskincare) during my private beauty session with @credobeauty. Later, I received even more from a diff brand! @wenbychazdean gifted me this AMAZING body oil that I'm obsessing over.
