Built for This…

At times it feels easier to deny your reality than to accept your fate.  As long as you act as if  your troubles are indistinguishable, then your triumph will feel invisible.

Incredibly, in your unchanged effort to protect your feelings, you can chip away at your Presence.

Yes, days can be difficult and some night can even seem unbearable, but you must find the determination to be persistent in finding peace through your challenges.  You must remind yourself of your troubles and accomplishments, for both are valuable teachers.  You must learn to be your own motivator…. This is not due to the lack of support you may think you don’t have; instead, it ‘s in the reassurance that you were built for a world like this world. Your battles existed before you had anticipated them, You were built for failure to feats.

The Beauty in Choosing…

 The Beauty in Choosing….

Beautiful Art that fills our City Streets…

 The beauty of our days is the many opportunities we get to choose. Every day YOU get the choice to see the glass as half empty OR half full. I whole-heartedly say, choose to see yourself half way closer to your goals than farther than you are imagining. Remaining focus and ambitious isn’t a seasonal desire. You have to be eager to challenge your daily ambiguity and remain positive during the most difficult of times. You spirit cannot be broken without your consent. Your armor will become dented by the spells of life, but your spirit will not be broken….

I have the ability, no matter the circumstance in  my life, to fill my glass at least half way. I am never empty …

Never Empty …

Mosaic: Our made up Life….

Mosaic Blend

Its hard for me to blend in at times. I am not driven to look, sound, or feel like anyone else but myself. Spending your days trying to fit into a mold which someone else created for you, will make life appear more difficult and unfullfilled than it was meant to BE.

Our younger self(s) was always unsure about who we are and what we will surmount to, but what we tend to forget are all those moments that make up joy of  LIFE.  It is important to be grateful and inspired by every moment in your life. When you do this, you will realize how much the goodtimes out way the bad, and how lucky you are to have such a wonderfullly made up life.

Dont try to blend. Dont try to be, look or sound like any one else but yourself; for we are all individually and wonderfully created.

Nothing To Wear Too

Autumn Dress

….the sister- friend of the Maxi dress 

Us girls love our Maxi dresses; and even more so during our summer and spring days. But when the fall season rolls around , we reluctantly put them away with all the rest of our super cute summer sundresses.

What I have found to be useful in purchasing a Maxi dress, is considering its multiple purpose styling options. 
Can it can cross over into the genre of seasons?  

Typical most Maxi dresses are multicolored and vibrant, giving its appeal for the cooler and hotter days of the year. However, if you make a note to own a maxi dress(s) that is a vibrant, solid in color, and complimentary to the bust, you can easily recycled them in to your wardrobe for the fall season. I joking like to referrer to this fashion adjustment as the Autumn dress…the sister- friend of the Maxi dress.

Here is my take of few alternations you can make to your Maxi dress to incorporate into your winter wear.
Orange maxi dress: Target
Brown cotton tee: H&M
Green Scarf: 5 Below
Brown wedge: Bakers
Jean Jacket: made by a friend…
Navy Blue Maxi dress: Old Navy
Black & Gray Sweater: H&M
Black knew boots: BGBG
Tip: Simple &  quick adjustments to your dress can change your look completely.

Turn your dress into a Skirt … add a large statement piece … Tie a knot in any of your long dress …. It’s the little things that matter 😉
