WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!!!! She hearts God more than Polka Dots

Hey Loves

After weeks of being away from my blog and sharing with you, the consensus has been screaming I miss your blog. It’s truly amazing the different groups of people whom have come forward and spoken about what I considered just rambling and showing my life through pictures. Well, as the world grows louder, I will return to writing and sharing on the blog however it won’t be a fashion blog because I am more than Fashion. Yesterday when I woke up for work I paused to think how blessed I am each day I get to decide which role I want to play because I wear so many hats.

IMG_9121.JPG My favorite roles however are Mom and woman of God. . My son is my everything and God is at the forefront of everything that I do. As the world grows louder, we become more tech savvy and our minds are invaded by everything we see or partake in. As a woman of a God I have to ensure that the distractions of society does not separate me from quality time with God. Daily prayer and meditation with praise music helps to keep me focused and in wait to sense God’s will.

IMG_9122.JPG In writing this I just wanted to share that it is God’s will for me to share my pictures and words with the world. When you learn to trust God it makes a difference in your life and no matter when the world seems to be caving in, you will have an anchor, yes God will be your support. That’s right God’s love and support never changes. Turn to him for strength and support in all your endeavors.

IMG_9124.JPG So after work it was a birthday celebration for my high school friend Mourine and as women of God and business partners we all had a great time at the Mall and dinner. Being a woman of God is not boring. We all have fun looking our best and live full normal lives, we just made the choice to walk with God and surround ourselves with like minded people. We are women of God, we are created to Flourish, therefore we uplift each other because we Love God more than I love polka dots!! Welcome Back, I missed you also!!!

Love ya
Simply June ❤️

Street Style look Elevated for the Black Celebrity Giving Award Ceremony

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.

God’s Unfailing Love sets us Free!!!

Hey Loves,
The weather has broken I am enjoying the 80 degree weather daily in Atlanta, a bit warmer than I like for Spring but it’s better than frigid temperatures so I won’t complain. In my attempt to move forward and build a better relationship with Christ I have come to realize that his unfailing love makes me healthier and provides me with a brighter outlook. Can you imagine I am even more optimistic???? Yes I’m free….God’s unfailing love has set me free from my past, free from drama, free from, pain, free from hurt. I’m not ashamed of my past, I’m not afraid to face rejection, I can look fear in the eye and know I can conquer everything. Yes I have been broken however my past helps to shape my future, my life experiences makes a believer out of others. I love the spiritual relationship and intimacy that I have developed with God which has taught me about his unfailing love and reignited passion in me, yes I am healed, I am set free, I am no longer broken.>

Life is a Smile

20131127-031437.jpg
Hey Loves,
As the days go by, I realize the reasons for my smile, Life is a smile.. Simply each day that I arise is a blessing in disguise, I am granted the opportunity by God to accomplish all that I didn’t do the day before. Every procrastinated thought or idea surfaces and I smile knowing I might only get to it based on my associated level of priority. In life there are occurrences designed to take me off track, to allow me to face adversary, to challenge myself, to discourage me from my dreams. I am human so I will pray knowing God answers prayers, I will cry because I am woman and yes I do have emotions, I will stress because I don’t like deadlines I love leisure but through it all I know life is a smile. Life happens and I must strategize and deal with adversaries as best as possible, when I pray I must wait for an answer as well as I must be able to discern the answer and be thankful in prayer. The outcomes may not always lead to instant gratification however I must always remember life is a smile.. No matter what I am going through some one else has a story and their story is more significant than mine. Who am I to not absorb while I observe my environment. Every challenge has been experienced by someone else, therefore its not inhuman so I must climb uphill to press on and reach for the stars, surpass every rejection, every failure, every learned experience, every failed relationship, every forgotten friendship, every refusal to help and every denial. In the end life is a smile so I will keep on smiling through the tears, the storms and the sleepless nights, because I am self made and God stands beside me.

20131127-033706.jpg The many expressions of me because when its all said and done i believe therefore Life is a smile, my optimism provides me with endurance, before I know it I will have stories and experiences to share with everyone.

Single in the City…my passport to Boaz.

Hey Loves!!!!
This week was rather exciting, In the  comfortable aura and beautiful ambiance of the Aurum Lounge, I attended a book signing for Sabrina Brie Rowe (twin sister to Sharlinda Rowe-Parker) a cute little novel about the missing piece to her puzzle.  Titled “Single in the City….my passport to Boaz” she shares with her audience the story of an accomplished god fearing  life without her Boaz and not being willing to settle for less than a god fearing man. 

image

Boaz from the chapter of Ruth in the bible allows us to revisit a bible story and compare modern day relationships with those of the past.  Sabrina shares stories about past relationships and what led her to God, celibacy, being single and waiting for her Boaz.  While doing so she is preparing herself for Boaz with a mental list of all the qualities that she wants in her Boaz and recommends that everyone should maintain a list of
the qualities; a realistic list of the qualities that one would want in their  mate.

Panel discussion about relationships
The Q & A panel was quite informative as the audience was able to ask questions in regards to relationships not necessarily for advice but to understand another person’s point of view. Males and females alike asked realistic questions and communicated respectfully.  It was much better than listening to relationship experts telling you what you should do. As stated by Sabrina “Every woman is different so we all want different things.” Therefore no one should ever be told what to do

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.

Fun on a Saturday Night

20130210-184409.jpgHey Lovelies, Last night I went to see the stage play Blackman-o-logues at the 14thstreet playhouse in Atlanta. I must say this play was quite touching to hear the voices of black men and what goes on in their head based on love. The shared thoughts on love has given me a different perspective on the black man or men in general and a different outlook on relationships. After all I always knew relationships are not perfect and one has to work hard like hell to maintain a relationship or else they will end before starting and constantly restarting as baggage moves from one relationship to another.

20130210-193239.jpg“What runs through the mind of a Black man when he is confronted with the subject of love? In this smart and funny production, you’ll meet several different characters who will give you their views on Black love, whether between men and women, parents and their children, siblings, best friends or the love found in tight knit communities. An informative and entertaining montage of commentary, humor and insight, Jacquay Waller’s Black Man-O-Logues gives interpretations of love by the men that feel it.”

20130210-193351.jpg Got a chance to meet the playwright Jacquay Waller after the play.
