I have to admit: my family always has some secret insight on beauty regimens. My mom and Medge, in particular know the absolute best product (whether it be a Haitian remedy or item on the market) that will help your hair grow longer or shinier or what will make your skin smoother and healthier. We’re a family that knows the goods.
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.
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?
Hello, Adorners! Hope you all are well into showing Monday who’s boss. If you haven’t yet put on your armor — do so! Tarah created a dope newsletter — show your support through signing up, you won’t regret it. You even get a freebie!
I’m sure by now you guys can see that I am Tarah’s personal cheerleader. We were meant to be sisters and I can’t stress that fact enough. We genuinely root for each other’s dreams and I think that as sisters and best friends that’s really important. The love is real y’all!
Can you believe it’s March already? In-sane. The weather has already begun behaving like spring but I can’t wait for the season to especially come. I’m preparing myself by switching out my bulky winter wardrobe for my spring wardrobe, cleaning every inch of my house and tending to every inch of my skin. Yes, I said skin. Spring cleaning should apply to our skin, too!
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.
Our craziest snowstorm of the season just had to be on the first day of Fashion Week, right? I remember looking out the window and seeing crazy flurries and rising snow all over. My family and friends asked me, “You sure Fashion Week isn’t cancelled?” I had to laugh but I so was dreading going out in that weather!
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.
Valentine’s Day Lookbook: find it here, beautiful people!
By now, you all pretty much know that I’m back on YouTube! If ya didn’t know, check out my relaunch vid here). I’m soooo excited for my return — I have so much planned! Be sure to subscribe because I’ll be creating videos about style, life in the light of a believer and of course encouraging you all over there.
Hey people, Medge here! I hope you all have been achieving all your girl boss goals. While you’re getting work done, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Get your hair done, go to your favorite restaurants — feel the love! That journey starts with you.
My favoriting way to clear my mind is to watch movies, especially romantic films. I get all into the theatrics and drama of every break up and make up. In reality though, I understand that I don’t have to begin relationships with everyone knowing my business or end them with guns a-blazing.
