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.
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.
Diamonde Williamson, founder of Pledge to be Bella, put on yet another successful women to watch event. I admire her so much because she is a go getter. She speaks life into her dreams and ultimately receives everything she asks for and more. She loves loves loves to empower women and it genuinely shows. I appreciate her so much for connecting women in Atlanta. Much success to you, boo.
You know those days when there’s so much to do that you don’t really want to do anything? That’s pretty much how I felt this weekend.
We had our annual Halloween party at work with the kids. This was probably the largest turnout. The kids and parents alike had a lot of fun.
I spent my evening at Bevello with some lovely ladies, shopping and chatting it up about style and fashion. Hosted by stylist and blogger, Erin Whitlock Brown from Brains of the Outfit blog, the evening was primarily focused on polishing your professional style. Special thanks to Dry Bar, NARS Cosmetics, The Posh Spot and Photo Says Hello for all the awesome gifts and services.
