Not from around Here!!!

Hey Loves,

20140518-182020.jpg As I get ready for church in the rain, I am thinking of what to wear as I rarely ever know what to wear. I am reminded I live in the suburbs and my church is accepting of one’s garments so almost anything will do. Yet As simple as I am I am different, anything won’t do. I often feeling as if I am Not From Around Here!!! so I try to be as plain as possible with a simple black and white dress paired with matching cap toed black and white shoes. it takes time to find a purse because it’s raining out and I want to cheer myself up. I am looking forward to the warmer weather and so I need a pop of color to brighten up a gloomy, rainy day. I reached for my perforated summer bag and I feel alive and confident to walk in the rain.

20140518-183211.jpg The Church sermon was so great reminding me of the power of God and his chastisement because he loves me. The ability to understand that when you love someone you tell them the truth not because you want to hurt them but because you love them so you maintain trust and honesty. That no matter what I am going through the love of a God surrounds me and prayer, yes praying boldly will get me through all the strong holds in my life. With tears pouring from my eyes I am praying and thanking The Lord for loving me despite my shortcomings. I am thankful for everyday despite looking as if I am not from around here I feel like this is home and where I belong I will just look different because I am different and I have a purpose, the love of a God will let me go through storms to show me how strong I really am, what I should live without, what I should give less attention to, how the devil will use my child to distract me from God, and to show me what is worth living for as well as what is worth dying for. I am thankful that I can remain strong through it all and when I am temporarily weak God forgives me and restores me the power of God is beautiful, truly amazing and with God in my life I may seem different, because walking with God has shown me that I don’t miss the people that I thought I couldn’t live without. That I don’t miss doing the things I used to do nor do I miss hanging out with some people. When people are confrontational and have done me wrong or speak ill of me I pray for them because I know I am not from around here…..I am a woman of God.

Catastrophic Wintry Mix in Atlanta

20140212-170622.jpg
Hey Loves,
The most significant ice and snow storm in 20 years is currently taking over the south, freezing temperatures, snow, rain, ice and sleet in a catastrophic wintry mix . In Atlanta at the moment there are over 200,000 people experiencing power outages and semi trapped in their homes. The supermarket and convenience store shelves are empty, schools are closed and the roadways are empty. Everywhere is covered in snow and ice, the brave hearts whom venture out are just rather unsafe because though Atlanta is somewhat prepared with loaner salt trucks and snow mobiles from other States it’s just not enough for Atlanta!!!! After the madness and name blame and pointing fingers during and after the last snow storm the mayor has guarded himself of and from all the political blaming, by declaring it a state of emergency.

20140212-174909.jpg This is all good stay off the roads if you are able to however Georgia is an “At Will State” meaning if you are expected to show up for work then you should try and get there safely as there is no protection against being fired nor being hurt in increment weather. Being a winter baby from the north my vehicle is equipped to handle winter weather I love snow and winter . I love to dress up and go out in the snow…too bad I would be the only one outside as it’s like ghost town.

20140212-180803.jpg

20140212-180955.jpg Its like ghost town, no one going to work, no one at play, about an inch of snow on the ground and it’s raining on and off quite a disturbance in suburbia. This nature girl grabbed her winter wares and headed out doors for a walk to appreciate the beauty of nature before it’s disturbed .

20140212-182037.jpg

20140212-182608.jpg Of course I have my purse I am a lady it’s packed with beautiful jewelry pieces to motivate, inspire and change the lives of people I meet that’s why!!!!

20140212-190647.jpg I am such a lover of navy and grey, contrasted with the snow it’s such a beauty, I could walk for hours however, I have more writing and work to do, so while others are off because they are snowed in, it will be most productive for me and my home based jewelry business where you can purchase beautiful fashion jewelry all year 24 hours a day.

love you all….

Hey Loves,
Quite an eventful and exciting weekend here in Atlanta, thanks to Bronze Lens Film Festival for hosting the screening of Best Man Holiday. Quite eventful indeed for an all Black cast to screen in Atlanta our own little Black Mecca.Β  Fifteen years later a sequel to the Best Man however better late than never yet right on time. The movie was not hackneyed as most movies are nowadays yet it touched on an array of topics and issues that needs to be addressed or of concern in our communities. This movie is a must see as it will strengthen your bonds with friends, family and loved ones.

Thanks to the new on the scene to the Atlanta talent scene playwright and novelist Cynthia Stokes the writer who invited me to the screening.

Best Man Holiday is a must see movie….much better than the first guaranteed to have you watching it repeatedly and being the topic of conversation with everyone. The boundaries and topics that are brought to surface will reduce you to tears and motivate you to being a better person, a better friend, a better family member and increase your faith in the Lord. So many things happen in our lives daily and we don’t take the time to reflect based on the rat race but this movie pushes us to do so…at the end of the day you will be laughing through the tears and strengthened. A big shout out to Bronze Lens Atl , mayor Kasim Reed, K. Bertrand of Bronze Lens and Regal Cinemas for making this event possible in Atlanta hope to see more screenings in Atlanta.

For a quick evening out a quick skirt and boots was perfect. For some reason I am feeling the color burgundy, berry or Bordeaux with a mix of stripes so that was my quick and simple ensemble. The most effort went into which necklace to wear….so it was narrowed down to my galore necklace set Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry.

Go Red For Women

20131021-050551.jpg
Hey Loves, Is it the truth or myth that red wine is good for your heart if consumed on a daily basis? Well the majority says yes but what about alcohol consumption…….hmmm!!!! Well the color of the day is RED!!!

20131021-051307.jpg Go Red For Women is an organization for women to support and teach us to take care of our heart. Unknowing to most Heart disease is the number one killer of women. That’s right one in every 3 women are likely to battle heart disease and age does not discriminate. At least once per month I wear red in support of women battling heart disease, unfortunately heart disease is not as recognized as breast cancer to borrow support from others for an entire month however we would just love for all women to take care of their heart on a daily basis. All it means is maintaining healthier relationships, making better food choices and reduce the risk of heart attack.

20131021-053114.jpg Do you know the signs of a heart attack? when you Know the signs to look out for then you may save a life or your very own. The signs of a heart disease are: fatigue, back pain, chest pains. Do not let these pains go as they can be more serious than you are thinking. Trace your family genealogy, avoid heart disease.

The antioxidants found in red wine are good properties for your heart however alcohol consumption unless done in moderation is bad for one’s health.

Life is short…..wear a mini

Hey Loves,
For the last weekend of the summer I celebrated one of my friends’ birthday so we headed out to dinner at the Shark Bar. Supposedly a mature crowd out to dinner and dancing with champagne service, a banging deejay, great kitchen reviews and service, so we expected to have a grand time.

20130926-074949.jpg With the weather about to change over to Fall I sported darker colors, animal print and a faux leather mini. I have gained a significant amount of weight, but I’m thinking life is short….wear a mini!!

20130926-075233.jpg I love this look of mixing prints, faux leather, and colors, just totally fabulous. You will be seeing a lot of this fashion mix Fall 2013. Python print grey and ivory blouse with leather trim neckline paired with faux leather mini and yellow heels to accentuate the legs and cheer up the outfit with a pop of color, which gives a chic appearance. The skirt brings about a sassy look and highlights the detail in the python printed blouse. Accessorized with jewelry reminiscent of Egyptian Kings and Queens “the San Tropez collection from Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry

Lady in the Printed Tube Dress

20130906-092910.jpgHey Loves As the summer comes to a halt, I look forward to the change in fashion, the coolness of the weather and spending less time indoors. I love the warmth of summer however Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons. This week went by so fast, I truly wish I had time to wear all my summer dresses. Anyway I guess they might get worn on vacation or put away for next year. Labor Day shopping with my bestie and nieces who picked out this dress today took a minute to show what I’m wearing. This cute mini floral print tube dress barely made it out if the closet but its a keeper so it will be worn again as its a versatile dress, and as we all know my wardrobe consists of mostly dresses….I am the Lady in a dress.

Residency in a Floral Skirt

Hey Loves!!!
A few weeks ago I had to meet up with my fellow school mates at Residency and ooh it was awesome, socialization is truly an art which is quite enriching once done well. It seems like the summer is almost over and I haven’t truly done much, so many events have passed me by, my clothes are all pressed and hanging in the closet however life events have taken over and I am not as active as I would love to be. This week in my down time I will be in New York hopefully I will get to socialize a bit or get to a soirΓ©e. So i went to Residency wearing a floral skirt it was quite an awesome day a mix of students from all over the world, I must say I met really interesting people with common as well as different interests.

20130827-132232.jpg As we all know skirts and dresses are my favorite threads and I wear them all year. In packing for this Residency I realized that unknowingly Prints, stripes, florals, dots all seem to be an integral part of my wardrobe. It was therefore easy to pack fun clothing. I truly love the floral printed skirts this one I picked up at J.Crew and at that time I envisioned pairing it with an electric blue blouse to work. Somehow I made it louder with an orange silk blouse that I picked up at a sample sale in NYC and my favorite ivory elbow patch navy blue Zara blazer. The floral skirt can be worn with any of the vibrant colors that makes up the floral print and that’s what makes it such a beautiful skirt. It’s floral print and vibrant colors enriches your very presence. Being in a casual yet professional environment I chose to wear blue wedge heels for comfort while walking from one conference room to another. There it goes another simple yet elegant outfit.
