FALL IN MOTION

Whew. The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind.

 

From fashion week (I’ll be sharing a recap next week) to doing some freelance work, to working retail, to applying to jobs!!! It’s been real.

DAYDREAMER, HERE’S HOW TO GAIN CLARITY

Hey guys, Medge here!

 

Can’t believe we’re already bidding summer adieu. As I prepared to write this post, it hit me that I’ve been writing on Adorned In Armor for a year! Looking back to my old posts, I can see the change between the person I was then and who I am now.

EMBRACING THE RAIN ON MY PARADE

Hey guys, Medge here!

 

Summer has poured “rain on my parade” in the most unexpected of ways. From the silly little things like going to an editors meeting at 2:15 because you missed the follow up email saying that it now started at 2 :)…to the even more serious things, like missing the bill payment for school… or, even having a cracked screen on my laptop that holds all my writing files (including this post that I rewrote) with no funds to pay for damages. Needless to say, I was drowning.

SNAPCATION: CANADA CAPTURES

 

I’ve been wanting to travel all summer. I had been feeling so off (for many reasons) and needed a break. God granted me the desires of my heart because last Thursday, my mom called me and told me to pack my bags for a trip to Canada the very next day!

 

Yes, just like that.

COME AS YOU ARE

I’m really good at being “okay.” I’m great at it, actually! Doesn’t matter where or when, I can always muster up a smile for anyone.

 

My best friends, however, know me very well. And so I don’t feel the need to act outside of myself when I’m not feeling like myself. When I’m unhappy, they see it in my eyes. When I’m turned off, they see it in my demeanor. When I’m agitated, they see it in my silence. My mom is especially good at reading me! I don’t have to say a word, they just feel it.

 

So I’m continuously amazed…not by how my closest friends have the ability to feel like something’s off with me, but by the mere fact that God already knows.

3 WAYS TO SPEAK UP WHEN SOCIETY SAYS SHUT UP

Society raised us to speak up and be heard…unless it’s a controversial subject, that is. Yes, we were taught to speak up but as time progresses and situations worsen, we’re being shouted at to shut up.

 

Shut up, no one cares about your skin. Shut up, no one cares about your hair. Shut up, no one cares about your parents being deported. Shut up, no one cares about your faith. Shut up, shut up, shut up… unless you want to talk about fluff.

 

Now, I’m usually social media silent on issues like police brutality because it’s disheartening and my website isn’t a platform for politics. However, having a heart isn’t political.

SUMMER NIGHTS WITH ASOS

Summer — I actually hate it.

 

I say so every year it comes along because every year I still mean it! It’s just not for me. And if it was up to me, I seriously would consider relocating to cooler land just for these few months! People think I’m crazy but my reasons are solid (bugs, scorching heat, sweat). Who likes that?

 

Like, the day I shot this look, it was so hot. Thankfully, I have a nice glow in these photos but really, I think I was on the brink of glistening in perspiration lol. Shout out to my glands for holding back for the sake of these photos!

  • Never feel obligated to prove yourself to anyone. When you know who you are, that is MORE than enough ❤️
  • Throwback to last summer when I traveled to DC for the national Miss Black USA pageant! So honored to be crowned @missblacknewjersey18! I created a GoFundMe campaign called, “Tarah Takes Heart” in hopes to garner support to nationals, raise #strokeawareness and empower more girls through my platform! I’m super dedicated to not only talk about the physical ailments that plague the hearts of women but to cover all of the emotional. It’s imperative to take care of the very vessel that keeps us going, ladies! Please see the link in my bio for my GoFundMe story — hope you can support! ❤️
  • You know when you wait for the right moment to share something REALLY important? I’ve been planning to make this announcement for MONTHS now 😭. Life has been such a whirlwind and we’ve been seeing more and more of just how precious time is in this world. I’m realizing that there’s no such thing as a perfect moment. YOU have to create it for yourself. I have butterflies right now and that’s really rare for me but I finally am ready to let it out. Ladies and gents, I am your MISS BLACK NEW JERSEY 2018! 😭🙌🏾✨✨✨ — 
Please read up on my story on my #GoFundMe gofundme.com/tarah-takes-heart (link in bio) and more about the platform I have chosen to dedicate my reign to: stroke. My mom suffered from one in 2013, rocking our lives forever. But most importantly, her presence in my life has been the most life changing. It is because of her that I want to give back to the stroke community and raise awareness of the issues of the heart!!! Both emotionally and physically ❤️ Ya girl needs the funds doeee so go show majorrrr love to that gofundme and share button 😂 You can also donate through PayPal (PayPal.me/tarahlynn) and Venmo (TarahSaint). Your support means the world to me. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOUUUU!!!
