Devil In A Red Dress!

You Hussy!

I remember growing up the color red was seen as a "fast" or "hoe" color. I'm laughing as I write this. I can hear the older church women talking about some, hussy in the red dress(insert “Mmm hmm,” and “Jesus,” here LOL). After hearing that from them, and other women, I've always shied away from the sultry color.  No red lipstick, no red dresses… especially, no red nail polish.

No more excuses! Some of us have the self-destructive habit of putting others before ourselves. We push our dreams and aspirations to the side in order to please others. While, some of us make up excuses in order to block ourselves from pursuing our passions, because we are afraid of failure. When do we start going after what we want? What is it that makes us encourage our friend’s dreams but push our own to the side?

Electric Avenue

Why blend in when you were born to stand out!

It’s officially Leo season, the best sign on the planet (that fact is not up for debates or discussion)!  My birthday will be here in a few weeks, and I had to kick it off with something bright and electric. I don’t know about you, but I've become obsessed with all things neon. My closet is full of neon maxi skirts, dresses, and tops.

You're only bold online...

Social Media Confidence vs Real World Confidence

You take pictures for the likes in swimsuits, bodycon, crop tops… you name it. You post it to every social media site and BOOM—you're loved all over the web! But, what happens when the phone and computer are off, and you're in the real world? 

Ask yourself, do you still feel good about who you are off-line?  Are you still confident when you hear comments and feel judgmental stares from strangers? Do you think confidence and love can be found in a clothing item? Do you know that it’s ok to not be confident every single day? That confidence is something that has to be worked on daily?

Are you looking at bloggers and models as inspiration or people to copy?
