A new year gives me 365 chances to work towards my dreams. Every year I dream of all the things I want to do, places to go and adventures to have! But, like most people I don’t always get to accomplish all of them. This year, I vow to not go another year without working toward my dreams. Last year, I was able to start my dream of traveling more and having greater adventures, but some health issues prevented me from doing more. I will go into that further in another post.
Alright so this next look channels Janelle Monae’s signature look. Janelle is a tuxedo enthusiast who can be seen mainly wearing black and white. Her style is amazing and I just love the way she dresses.
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
First let me start off by saying happy MLK day! It was an honor to have such a great man preach and speak love, in a time of such great hate. I thank Dr. King for laying down his life, so that my kids and myself could have a better life!
Growing your hair can be rewarding and frustrating at the same time. I have been growing my hair since 2008 and I can say the struggle has been too real! LOL. While I’ve had some set-backs none of them have been major. Everyone wants beautiful long hair, but aren’t willing to do what it takes to achieve it.
Happy Hump Day! First of all the weather in Alabama is on it’s bipolar ish again! This past weekend, there was threat of snow and the whole city shut down.
Alabama was shut down due to the threat of snow, this past weekend. As a result, I was able to work a half day and make it home before all the ice and sleet became too dangerous. Once home, I immediately put on my comfy pajamas, knee high socks and picked up a good book.
While my job is mostly business or business casual attire, we do have an exception to this rule on Fridays. On Fridays we are allowed to dress in casual clothing, including jeans, but we are not allowed to wear sneakers. In my mind jeans and sneakers go together like peanut butter and jelly…so I have to be a bit more creative. I don’t always take advantage of wearing jeans on Fridays as I frequent the CEO and COO offices.
With this crazy Alabama weather, you just never know what conditions you’re going to wake up to. It can be 75 one day and 60 the next. I plan my outfits for the upcoming week on Sundays, based on the weather predictions and recheck it every morning to make sure I don’t need to make any changes. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always work as the weather can’t be easily predicted nowadays. Woke up this morning to 55 degrees and it quickly climbed to 65 today. As a result, it makes it tricky when pre-planning outfits.
I am so excited to post my first blog post! I want to begin by saying Happy New Year! This will be the start of a new journey for me and I hope you come along! While this isn’t my first blog, this will be a new beginning for me. Therefore, I am branching out and spreading my wings…hopefully I can fly, lol!
