Note To Younger Girls

  1. You are beautiful. Mama may have never told you that but I’m here to remind you that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are unique. No one can ever be you. You may have heard this before but that’s the truth of the matter.
  2. Take time for yourself. Get to know you. No this is not selfish. It’s extremely important for your well-being.
  3. Cultivate a relationship with God. Your faith is not dependent on your mother, father or grandmother’s salvation. Get to know God for yourself. You don’t have to wait till your 30 before you start getting serious about your relationship with God.
  4. You are not going to live in your parent’s house forever. One day, you’ll move out. So while you are living with your parents, make the most out of your time.
  5. Learn to cook. It’s not everyday ramen noodles. When your mom is cooking, try to watch her and ask questions. Learn from her. Cooking is art. Learn from others and add their tips to your cooking. These days, people showcase their cooking on youtube. You can learn from there. Stop getting upset when your asked to do your chores. It will help you one day in life. When you go to college and meet people who don’t clean or even brush their teeth, you’ll thank your mother for raising you.
  6. Learn from others. When you don’t understand something, ask questions.
  7. Friends come and go. At a young age, it’s so tough to understand. You’ll get upset and frustrated but later on you’ll realize it. Surround yourself with postive, likeminded people. You are who you attract. If you like drama, people who love drama, will be attracted to you. Know your friends. It’s not everyone you meet, you automatically give them the spare keys to your house. In the same way, you shouldn’t consider everyone you meet your friends. Know the difference between associates and friends. In order for one to be a good friend to you, you must learn to be one too. There is a season for everything. Understanding that there is a purpose to every encounter is key. Those who are meant to be a part of your life will be there. Don’t try to maintain friendships/relationships with people who make it apparent that they don’t want your friendship.
  8. Know your value. The way you are raised plays a role in how you behave/view things later on in life.
  9. Set goals for yourself but don’t forget to include God in your plans.
  10. Life is a journey. Be open to new adventures in life. Continue to learn from others. Don’t be hard on yourself. Try not to compare yourself with others. No one is perfect. It’s not everything you see in movies, or social media that is true. Most of the things your see are just highlights of one’s life. You don’t know what people are going through behind close doors. Appreciate the people that God has placed in your life. Make the most out of each day you are blessed to see. Live, laugh, love smile while you can. Life is what you make it 🙂

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 🙂

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. -Maya Angelou 🙂

All pictures on this post aren’t mine. They are all found on google.  All the names above are the artist/photographer’s names. There were so many names but the list would have been too long so I’ll post more when I can. For now, tell your friends and their friends. I know sometimes people don’t like to share but this platform is different. Support creatives. Invest in people. Empower one another. Stay tuned for the next set of creatives I will share. Until next time, shine bright. Hold hands with God. Take care. 🙂
