For Colored Girls Who Could No Longer Stand the Cold. Yes, that was us on Sunday. Me, four girls and 12 colorful polka-dotted balloons.
It’s crazy that I’m learning the lessons even when I don’t seek instruction. Sometimes the Universe seeks to remind you in the most random of ways why you are here and what mark you’re supposed to leave before you are gone.
I’ve been toying with the idea of whether or not to take a week off from blogging.
I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “What do you need a break for? You’re not even working right now.” True. But every so often (more often than “so often”), I get into a bit of blogging rut. Not because I lack content to write about, but because I just don’t want to write. And I honestly can’t tell you WHY that is. It just is. This has never happened to me so early in the year but I will say, whenever I’m going through a transitional phase, it is difficult to focus. And that’s as best as I can explain it.
The idea of deserting my blog for a week seems kinda crazy. But maybe it’s what I need in order to recharge and post with enthusiasm again.
Polar vortex, we bid you adieu. Spring has finally come to reclaim its proper place. My limbs, mental state and the entire United States are forever grateful.
I don’t know about you but I pretty much want to be naked already. But since that’s not necessarily acceptable yet, there are a few items I’m looking forward to this season. I thinking I’ll go girly-glam. Sheers, pastels, neons and slingbacks. Whether that will happen or not, only time will tell.
Here are some Spring styles I’m thirsting after.
Women who are truly passionate about women are a sight to behold. As I always say, when you find a pure soul, you keep them around. This is exactly how I feel about Diamonde.
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.
This Winter has been so wonky. One day I’m wearing a coat with layers of clothing underneath, the next day I’m in a sleeveless tank. It makes no sense. On one of those “nice” days, I asked one of my friends, Derek, to take some pics of me. He’s an awesome photographer and I was just hoping to get some of that awesome rubbed off on me.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Thought I would share something special for the stylish lovers out there.
I remember seeing this young lady singing at church and I was blown away by not only by her amazing voice but her stellar looks. I kept thinking, “my goodness, she’s flawless!” With certainly a charming and cheery attitude to match. Introducing someone so naturally fabulously, it’s pretty much incomprehensible.
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.
