Best Clothing Websites

Hey ya’ll. I hope your doing well on this lovely Friday. Today I’m bringing to you all the best clothing websites to shop at whether it be dresses, shoes, or accessories. I find it sad when people don’t like telling a sister where they got that beautiful dress or shoe they are wearing. Honestly, I don’t think it’s a big deal but at the same time, I do understand why certain females don’t like to tell their friends where they purchased their clothing. Most times, it’s because they don’t want to see their friend wearing the same clothing as them or they just want to slay better than them. Either ways, I don’t see the big deal. So below are some if not most of the sites most women use to purchase their dresses. Of course there are great in store places you can visit but this list is mainly entailed towards online purchases.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Tell a friend and their friends. Until next time, live, love, smile and be you always. Muaah 🙂

Advice To Your Younger Self #1

via @ bonnietsang on Instagram:

For the past two months, I’ve been going around asking people who are much older than me this question “What advice will you give to your younger self?” It’s been pretty interesting the responses that I have received. I started this project primarily because I believe that it is very important to learn and takeaway something from other generations.

  1. Diane: If I can give my younger self an advice, it would to travel more. Other than that, I don’t regret anything. I was a Nurse then wanted to become a Mid-wife and I pursued it. (February 11,2017)
  2. Raquel: If I can give my younger self an advice, I would have to say *Don’t get distracted. Don’t allow heartbreak to take control of your emotions. Friends come and go but those who meant to be apart of it, will be. Embrace where you are at in life. Those are the things you will look back at. The things that you see at your darkest will prepare you for the light. Be wise with men, friends, and money. (February 16, 2017): Heart to Soul (Hillsong)
  3. Professor Diamond: If I can give my younger self an advice, it would have to be “go to college right after high school. I took a while before I went to college. At the time, I was working. (February 18, 2017)
  4. Bill L: If I can give my younger self an advice, it would have to be getting a real job after college. I was too busy painting houses. Later on I lived in Japan for some years teaching English. (March 8th,2017)
  5. Professor Amutah: If I can give my younger self an advice, I would have to say, *Stay focused on your goal. Don’t get distracted. Understand that not everyone in your circle is destined for greatness. Some people like to remain in the same level. Surround yourself with supportive people. Be unapologetic about yourself. If you are African, own up to it. Be proud about it. Don’t be embarrassed about your roots. Demand respect from every area of your life. From your friendships, family, your relationship and etc. Don’t downplay your gifts. (One of the favorite professors ever. Team Public Health). (March 21st,2017)
  6. Daddy: If I can give my younger self an advice, I would have to say, stay out of trouble, work hard (be studious), and don’t let anyone discourage you. Strive for success. Respect your elders. Listen to people’s opinions. It’s good to have opposers, that’s how you learn and grow. Be nice to people but also be careful because people take advantage. Be careful the choice of friends you make. Choose your friends wisely. Sometimes, you have to keep to yourself. Don’t open your heart too easily. Be careful what you share with people because you never know what may happen. If you have a fallout, they can share your information. If you have a secret, keep it to yourself. March 31st, 2017 🙂
I hope that as you take the time to read this post, that you can take away something. There’s always something to learn in this life. It’s a journey. We can’t do it alone. God has placed people in our lives for a purpose. Always, remember to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. Until next time, stay blessed. Live. Learn & Love. 🙂

It’s that time of the year for me. Happy New Year to you all. I hope your first week of the year is coming along well. So why am I here? Well, I wanted to share a book with you all. I came across this book almost 4 years ago through BronzeGoddess01 on Youtube. If you know me, Youtube is where I watch and get most of my information from. If you don’t know who BronzeGoddess01 is, please check out her channel. I bought this book in February 2013 after watching her video. I read it and it was a blessing. Here’s a brief synopsis of the book:
Turn your dreams into reality by taking matters into your own hands.

“In Write It Down, Make It Happen, Henriette Anne Klauser, Ph.D., explains how simply writing down your goals in life is the first step toward achieving them. Writing can even help you understand what you want. In this book, you will read stories about ordinary people who witnessed miracles large and small unfold in their lives after they performed the basic act of putting their dreams on paper. Klauser’s down-to-earth tips and easy exercises are sure to get your creative juices flowing. Before you know it, you’ll be writing your own ticket to success.”

Reflection: First, I got a notebook and started writing my goals and other things including people I wanted to meet in this life and places I wanted to go. Just yesterday, I picked up the book to look at it and I just smiled. I’ve accomplished and got the opportunity to go to certain places and meet different people. For instance, in 2015, I wrote down that I wanted to meet one of my favorite poets and in 2016, it happened. I met one of them. Her name is Ijeoma Umebinyuo. On March 2016, I also got the chance to meet Lupita N’yongo. I also got the chance to walk on the Brooklyn Bridge with my friend Kwame on our first time meeting. Honestly, today is January 8th, 2017 and I’m about to get ready to make my list. I got the opportunity to go to different restaurants in New York City and that was something I wrote down. It may seem like this is something you can do but honestly not everyone has a job or can afford to visit new restaurants. This was a challenge and a stretch but I’m glad I was able to do so. I’m overjoyed because writing down and making it happen process has been a blessing. Write it down but also believe and make an effort in making your dreams come alive. In the Bible, there’s a similar verse written in Habakkuk 2:2.

Even the word Bible tells  us to write it down and make it happenn...Habakkuk 2:2. Vision Board 2014:
So what next? It’s time for you to purchase a journal and start jotting down your short/long term goals. Write them down in bullet form, in any way you like as long as you can read it. I can’t wait for you to look back months and years from now and smile. Look back at all that you have accomplished. See this as an adventure. Tell your friends and their friends about it. Write it down. Start somewhere. Believe in your heart. Have faith. Step out in boldness and watch it happen.
So I’ll leave you with this message below. Dream big. Turn your dreams to reality. Breathe, Awake, Water Your Garden & Allow it to Bloom. The best is yet to come.

Perspective is Key

Tropic greens: The taste of Petrol and Porcelain | Interior design, Vintage Sets and Unique Pieces www.petrolandporcelain.com:

Perspective is Key. Looking back over the years, I can say that I didn’t have this mindset of perspective being key. I’ve grown so much. The trials I faced drew me closer to God. Life isn’t always easy. Some days are tougher than others but I have learned to lean on God. I can definitely say that something that has helped me to reshape my thinking is my relationship with God. I look at situations through a different lens now. There were times when I was going through my own personal situations and when I called my friends, they never got back to me. In those moments are when one begins to question their friendships. It was hard at times and yes there have been many times in my life that I have questioned myself about the people I surround myself with but overtime I learned not to depend solely on people. We are humans and we fail in some way. It breaks my heart to see that there are many people hurting. They have become silent. So what have I learned thus far in this life? I have learned a lot but I’ll list 10 things.

  1. Seek God in all your earthly doing. Study the Bible. Invite the Holy Spirit before you partake in your study.
  2. Perspective is Key. The way you choose to view your circumstances can either shape you or break you.
  3.  Create room in your heart for God in the same way you make room for things.
  4. Be careful of your circle of friends. At the same time, know that there is a Purpose to every encounter. Some people come into our lives for a season or for a lifetime. It’s never a mistake the people we cross paths with in this life.
  5. Prioritize. When something is important to you, you make time for that thing. You don’t make excuses. If you want to have a better relationship with God, you make time to be in his presence. You will make time to read the Bible.
  6. Community of Believers: It’s good to have people in your life that pray for you and want to see you grow in the Lord. If you do not have people in your life but will like to be surrounded with likeminded people, pray about it.
  7. Live: Don’t take life so seriously. There’s a time for everything. Create memories with your family, friends and loved ones.
  8. Spend time with yourself. Get know what you like and don’t like. Go out and explore. Write in your journal. Take pictures. Discover new hobbies.
  9. Prayer is powerful. I’ve heard people say “I don’t know how to pray”. “So and so knows how to pray for long.” Honestly, it’s not about the duration of your prayer but rather your heart and also having the faith that whatever you have prayed for will come to pass. I can say that something that has given me peace is asking God to have his way in everything. If things don’t go as I intended, I’m grateful and I look at it in a different perspective.
  10. Be a blessing unto others: As you forth into the day, there are people that God will allow you to cross paths with. It’s for a Purpose. I don’t believe in coincidences. Take time to compliment someone if you like their hair, clothes and etc. Take time to say hello or good morning when you meet people. Sometimes, we get so caught up in our own situations that we become close minded to what is right in front of us. Take time to pray for someone.

“There are far too many silent sufferers. Not because they don’t yearn to reach out, but because they’ve tried and found no one who cares.” -Richelle E. Goodrich

Until next time, take care of yourself. Stay rooted in the Word. Be Encouraged 🙂
