She Hearts Polka Dots

Hey Loves,
Hot enough for you? It is too hot for me I feel the need for a vacation coming up.  Once per month I pledge to wear red to promote Go Red for Women and the American Heart Association to encourage healthy heart awareness.  As a child I often heard of people dying from a broken heart and I couldn’t understand the emotional heart. After my Dad had Chronic Heart Failure I was forced to educate myself and nourish him back to good health.  As a result I wear red to promote heart health and I practice a healthy heart lifestyle. You too can practice a healthy heart lifestyle by eating heart healthy foods that prevent heart disease, exercise and manage your relationships and emotions healthily.

Street Style look Elevated for the Black Celebrity Giving Award Ceremony

20140703-220124-79284627.jpg
Hey Loves,
It seems like yesterday that I was introduced to the lovely Miss Jasmine Crowe at an award show honoring Toya Wright for her philanthropic work in the Black Community. I can’t believe it was a year ago I vowed to work with Jasmine in giving of my time and services as a parent liaison or mental health counselor to children. Unfortunately, I had just started my PhD classes and my time was limited with my other volunteer activities with the American Red Cross and Dress for Success Atlanta. However as time would have it Jasmine is hosting her award show again and this time she is honoring Tamika Raymond and other philanthropists and organizations for their diligent work and support in our community.

Unfortunately I missed out on most of the award ceremony (flat tire) but I still showed up and better yet I now have my schedule worked out wherein I can start giving back to our community and pouring into children who can and will grow up to be like me or achieve more than me.

20140704-042904-16144865.jpg Well if haven’t learned anything the most valuable thing I pride myself on knowing is Philanthropy~the art of giving back and pouring into others is a blessing! a feeling of accomplishment in itself.
At the end of the night I was glad I came out to support and solidify my promise to give back.

The Healthy Heart Series

image

Hey Loves!
With so many people focusing on health and fitness I wanted to take it a step further and focus on the “heart”….yes the major muscular organ which pumps blood throughout the blood vessels to various parts of our body.  To do so I teamed up with Heart Health coach and relationship expert “Sharon Reid” to network and teach heart health.

image

To kick off the first event we focused on the heart as an organ of spiritual, emotional and physical aspects and how to protect or guard your heart because the three parts can be affected by heart disease and other ailments.

image

The spiritual heart is non physical it is your inner treasure the center of your feelings, which is located to the right side of your physical heart.

image

The emotional heart is the deep emotions that you feel for or towards others. It is the center of wmotion and is located to the left of the physical heart. Being receptive to your emotional state it experience s many feelings from joy to grief. So any kind of disappointment,  death of a loved one, rejection is stressful on the emotional heart.

image

The physical heart is our actual heart which pumps the blood throughout our body and is affected by every spiritual or emotional feelings that the body experiences. When you are excited the heartbeat pumps more forcefully and when we are stressed or disappointed it wreaks havoc by stunning the heart with extreme shock. 

image

We ought to take care of our hearts by ensuring that we are balancing our emotions, eating healthy and exercising.  It takes maintenance to keep your heart healthy.  A happy heart keeps you happy and keeps your heart healthy.

How healthy is your heart?

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.

A Reflection on Mother’s Day Love

Hey Loves,

Like every Mother’s Day this one was no different everyone reached out to someone who played an important or motherly role in their life, or their biological mothers and females in their families, everyone went berserk trying to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift and show up for dinner with Mom. Churches all over were jam packed with people spending the day with Mothers and the sermons were just imaginably awesome. I often wonder do these same people honor these mothers all year or is it just for that one day? Personally I think its hypocrisy, and commercialized as love should be everyday. Why can’t people recognize their loved ones all year or without the rest of the universe doing it. I admire women that make a difference in the lives of children and others whom they come in contact with because that’s love its unconditional which helps to overcome hurts and release strongholds.

20140513-235911.jpg So on this Mother’s Day I call my Mom and talk with her like I do everyday then tell her how much I love and miss her. It’s like any other day except I add happy Mother’s Day Mom. There are many people whom don’t have their mothers around to celebrate because of so many reasons which can cause a bunch of mixed feelings however no matter what they can overcome whatever is blocking the love as long as they are ready for a change. After talking to my Mom I went to church with my son and my Dad. My co-Pastor preached a lovely sermon on overcoming, being the overcomer and strengthening ones life with God, using the bible as a shield from whatever hurts you. I left church feeling free and purposeful with my single beautiful lavender flower.

20140514-000643.jpg After 8 days on a ship I just wanted to relax and heal from my sunburns but I had to attend church it’s not a choice it’s a ritual for me. Nice and easy I dressed in a simple chevron nude dress with platform Mary Jane heels paired with a nude bag I picked up on the ship…..yeah it has become my new favorite bag!

Simple Mother’s Day ensemble:
Chevron dress: Abi Ferrin
Patent leather Mary Jane shoes: BCBG
Nude oversize bag: Steve Madden
Gold and black jewelry: Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry

I celebrate all Mothers every day, I salute those whom are doing a great job and I extend help to those who are in need to make them better mothers, after all life didn’t come with a set of instructions Mothers aren’t always perfect. I can say I thank my Mom for being there since my birth and for the unconditional love she taught me. As a result my level of resilience is better than others which lets me cope with all the disappointments and failures in this world with love unconditionally as I understand not everyone had a loving mother in their path which is a testament to attachment theory.

20140514-002939.jpg I love my Mom and admire her strength all day everyday, with her I can chat and laugh about anything even when she gets mad at me bothering her too much I know she is being honest when she tells me off because that’s what love does, it gives honesty not hypocrisy. Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day, I pray I have my Mommy forever, so say a prayer for my Mom to keep good health. Thank you in advance just remember Love heals all wounds.

Thanks for stopping by
