My mother is the eldest of six children. For the majority of her life, she has been a practicing nurse. We all know that the eldest child has a tendency to be the bossy, know-it-all type. Well, not my mother. Before she even became a mother, she was a mother to many. She has always had a caring and nurturing disposition.
Church means something so different to me as an adult. Growing up, I couldn’t wait to go because it meant seeing my friends. In high school and college, I felt obligated to go. Now as an adult, “church” is wherever I experience God. These days, when I do attend a service, I’m glad I can go dressed down. No more “church clothes”. Lol.
So excited to feature a guest post by friend and fellow blogger, Danielle of Olive Juice & S’Mores blog. I reached out to her about collaborating because she has such a fun style, reflective of her personality. I saw a few of her Winter posts on Instagram and just knew a cool covering of her style is just the dusting this blog needed. So for today, we’ve switched blogs. Check hers out for my post. Don’t be shy, show her some love.
This year, I’ve decided that I’m going to wear my good stuff. At my old job, I was on my feet a lot, so I wore flats the majority of the time. I’ve neglected my heels for far too long. It’s time to put them to good use.
Sunday, I made brunch plans with my new friend, who is an interior designer, Niki. I met her via social media a long while ago but we first met in person at my first blog event last year. I was so excited to see another shorty, lol. Anyway, I wanted to catch up with her because she’s awesome and has an AWESOME story, and to eat, of course.
Pretty excited about seeing my face on one of my favorite blogs site. Even more excited to be involved in friend Vaughn Dabney’s natural hair documentary, ‘Play With It‘. Remember I said to stay tuned? Well the documentary comes out this Fall. Congrats to Vaughn and much success in everything you do! Check out the teaser below.
My friend Jana is here celebrating her birthday so I treated her to lunch at my favorite place, West Egg. Happy early birthday, Jana!!!! Lets get this grown up turn up.
If you’re familiar with my blog, you are well aware that I change my hairstyle quite often. This past weekend was no different. I’ve been wanting to update the color in my hair for a while now. I finally did it and the results have grown on me. My hair is now a few shades of brown, ombre style. I’ll probably go a little brighter eventually but this is it for now.
After being emotionally drained from watching The Best Man Holiday, I headed over to my cousins to replenish my soul. She forgot to mention in her brief text invitation that her “dinner” had a theme. Not really surprising to me; my cousin loves to throw fancy gatherings. And I’m always here for them.
Autumn is by far my favorite time of year. The vivid colors of the foliage, cool breezes, the warmth from the sun kissing your skin, cuddling and comfort food all remind me of love. It’s almost as if the world is telling us to be still and enjoy life.
When it comes to meeting and vibing with people, I go with my gut. Whether I meet them in person or via the internet, I always have a feeling whether that person and I will connect. Like with most people who are special to me, the meeting is always a blur but their being leaves an impression. GG is just that kind of gal and I’m so glad I finally got to meet her in person.
