Happy weekend, y’all! So of course, my hair is blonde…AGAIN! LOL! I was able to eliminate the blue and green tones; and in the process I got my sides and back faded. I LOVE IT! I felt pretty casual this weekend so I threw this outfit together pretty quickly for a chill day in Downtown Mobile. Believe it or not, I love when I can find past season clothing in my closet and pair them with current ones! The skirt is the only ‘new’ item & the rest was shopped from my closet. I love when a look comes together so well- especially when its easy on the wallet and of course from the closet!
I’ve never been one to save items I like for a special/certain occasion. If I’m really into something, I will wear it right away (life is too short, where yo’ stuff 😬?) Like, I am going to wear the crap out of these camo heels 😌. Do you have a favorite outfit to the point that people would think you didn’t own other shoes/clothing? 🤔 Well, here is mine! It has been one week since I’ve owned the camo heels & I’ve already worn them to a speaking engagement and to Wednesday’s night church service 💁🏾! Do ya’ thing!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I love switching up my hair color around this time of year. My favorite way of doing that is rolling up my sleeves and getting the job done… myself! Well, doing it myself cost me my hair… literally🤷🏾♀️🙆🏾! In 2-3 days, I went from being blonde, blue, taupe, pink, teal, blue & back to blonde🙁; all this in efforts of trying to achieve the color grey. Trust me, y’all, it was not pretty lol! It’s fun to play with different hair color, BUT let’s stick to the professionals, people!
I started blogging back in 2013. To say it’s been easy would be an understatement. I didn’t know what the heck I was doing; I struggled with formulating ideas and making them clear on the blog. Several months into finding my way in such a saturated field, I met some amazing women and reconnected with friends from the past. It was so exciting to have my friends root for me and encourage me along the way. Surely they all meant well and wanted the best for me. After all, they are my friends.
I can remember my granny saying, “You don’t have to do anything to anyone for them to mistreat you.” Well, it took me a very long time to realize that. Over time, I’ve reached out to many women and collaborated/worked with some amazing women in the industry – but I soon realized not all have the same intentions or heart. Many of them were very pleasant & enjoyable, while others seemed to have a cold heart.
I wanted to use today’s post to encourage each of you to evaluate who’s in your circle. Are they worthy to stand in such an intimate space? Your friends are there to support, sacrifice, & even suffer with you. Whatever it is that you desire- do it. Despite who comes in and out of your circle, continue to do it with your head held high. YOU GOT THIS!
