Transparent Tuesdays

Colossians 3:1,2 (MSG)

So if you’re SERIOUS about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.

So, the past two weeks presented some challenges in my life. I started a new job last week (GO ME!!) but a week before I started my job my car broke down. LOL Listen, Linda, Listen! My new job is about a 30-45 min commute. I NEED A CAR! The funny thing about this whole situation is, I legit take care of Benita (That’s her name. She like this pearl green color so I call her Benita Apple baum….you got to put on Benita, Benita, Benita…ok I’m back) I get her oil changed and stuff regularly so when she started smoking… I had the confused stuck face. Like….

confused

When stuff like this happens you immediately want to trip out but I was like NAW son, I’m not giving in to the Devil’s devices. God knows my end from my beginning which means he already knew that this was going to take place! So guess what? He already has worked out a solution. I got my life together and called the insurance people and family. Then had my car towed to my mechanic. Now this was a Sunday and I had to report to my previous job Monday and Tuesday. I actually had a bunch of stuff to do to prepare for my new job that I was going to report to the following week.  On top of that the mechanic calls and says you need a new engine and then proceeds to tell me he can get me a USED engine for $3400. Y’all my debit card immediately busted out laughing! All I could say was ok let me think about what I am going to do because I don’t have the money. I immediately prayed and said ok GOD how we gone do this because I DON’T want another car note. I had already released my faith that I would be able to save my coin and pay for my next car in CASH and I had no intent of changing that because of this situation.

Now you might be reading this and thinking, what does this have to do with Colossians 3…GIRL everything! When situations occur that we have no control over the first thing we tend to do is TRIP OUT because we focus on what is right in front of us. Then we panic in the process because we are trying to figure out in our OWN ability how we gone correct the situation instead of TALKING TO THE WAY MAKER FIRST. THE ONE WHO IS IN OUR TOMORROW TODAY! The ONE who holds the blue print!!

Because I focused my attention on him and positioned myself to be in his presence and hear instruction from him…MY PROCESS which I am STILL GOING THROUGH because I STILL DON’T have my CAR has been made a lot smoother. I am DETERMINE to go to the next level in my faith and not let ANYTHING get in my way. So as Colossians 3 says “DON’T SHUFFLE ALONG, EYES TO THE GROUND, ASORBED WITH THE THINGS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU…LOOK UP!” Be GOD CENTERED! Be GOD FOCUSED!  Because the devil’s agenda is to get you distracted from growing in your connection with GOD which will prevent you from BEING THE BEST VERSION OF WHO GOD ALREADY KNEW YOU COULD BE.

It might be chaos around you but if we keep our eyes on the ONE who holds our tomorrow in his hand I promise you, you’ll look back on that situation and smile because you came out on the other side!!

Be YOU. Be GREAT. Be CHOSEN

I’m in love with the J. Bolin Collection

1 Nov

So up until recently, I have truly have been under a rock as it relates to celebrity stylist J. Bolin. It wasn’t until he styled one of my favorite people in the body of Christ, Sara Jakes Roberts in this Zara top that he tailored just for her that I just fell in love with him.

SAra jakes

His style is so effortless and chic! I love him because he creates looks that are so ME!!! He creates and puts together fashion forward everyday looks! His new line just affirms my love for his work!

Check out a few of his latest pieces below and then go shop because he is selling out quickly!

Oh and Curvy girls be patient! I see that he is looking for a plus size designer and I’m excited to see what he will come up with!!

Mindful Mondays

16 Oct

 

What’s up Chosen beauties!

I know I’ve been away for a couple of weeks but I just could not get my life together as it related to organization and time! I’m also about to revamp this whole blog site so…STAY TUNE!! I’m super excited!

OAN: I wanted to share my thoughts with you on the Monday morning basically encouraging you to be mindful <<< literally of your thoughts! It’s so necessary today. My favorite quote from my pastor is “Your perception is your reality” You can control your environment with your thoughts! So read below and I pray that it encourages you!


2017-10-15 23.35.44.png

The battlefield of the mind is a constant battle. Every single day I get attacked in my thoughts but the bible says to take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5) Sometimes the devil will put thoughts in your mind that make you feel like you been left behind or left out when God has simply SET YOU APART! You were never designed to “get in where you fit in.” You were uniquely designed to be different. You are custom made! There is not a single person on this earth who is like you! You were hand crafted with care by the Creator.  So, walk into this week with your head held high, being the Queen that you are. Taking every thought that is not of God and cast it down. Don’t allow the devil or the world to strip you of your God Identity.

Until next time loves!

Be Great! Be You! Be Chosen!

PREMME HAUL

16 Aug

Soooo finally sometime last week I got my Premme stuff in the MAIL!!! I was so excited that of course I had to try everything on and get my BFF to take PICS!! (S/O to MICKEY!!! HER iPHONE picture game is proper!!) Anyway, lol What I loved about the clothing is that they really did take into consideration the different body types as it relates to curvy women.

PicsArt_08-15-11.26.03_1502852355583The Denim dress had elastic around the waist and in the straps going across the back. CAN I TELL YOU THIS WAS A COMPLETE BLESSING!! (hit the ghetto girl clap after you say each word) You know when you step into a dress it sometimes can be a difficult to slide up over them hips or difficult to pull the straps up over the shoulder. (Dressing room struggles!!) The dress was an amazing fit. I did go up a size because it was denim and I know a lot of times denim dresses don’t have a lot of give to them. It was a good choice because it fit well.  I paired it with some cute hot pink/magenta suede Jessica Simpson sandals and my multi-color clutch from Francesca’s.

PicsArt_08-15-11.39.41_1502852356208

 

The grey wrap sweatshirt and short set with pearl accents was complete LOVE!!! I cannot tell you how much I loved this set!!!  The quality of the fabric was great and comfortable. The shorts length was cute just right so that the shorts would rise up in between my thighs! My white chucks paired well with it for a simple yet super cute outfit to just chill and hang out with the girls.

Until next time my loves!

SHOES FOR ME

9 May

49b936c10e365

Hey Hey Beauties!!! As a girl who wears a size 10 shoe there are times when I go into a store find a shoe I love and get upset only to find that they don’t have my size -__- but I can never say I’m ever as frustrated as my BFF (fellow blogger Mickey) who wears a size 12. So, I’m like there has to be shoes out there for you we just have to look. You can’t possibly be the only 25-year-old with big feet 0.o. As I started looking for shoes that went above a size 10 and were actually cute…I almost got discouraged because I was finding shoes that at best went size 11 and then I came across an amazing website called Barefoottess.com. Their shoes start at a 10 and go all the way to a size 15. They have an amazing shoe selection of some cute and trendy shoes. They even carry fashionable brands such as Dolce Vita and Jeffrey Campbell <<<<I LOVE HIS SHOES!!! I also found that brands like Ninewest also went up to a size 12 in select styles and Nordstrom also had pretty good selection of shoes that went up to a size 12. I took the time to pick out some cute shoes that are trending for the summer for those of you out there who have similar problems! Hope you like! And if you know of other brands, stores, or websites that carry cute shoes over-size 10 please leave in the comment box below!!

The Life of M.E.

26 Apr

Sometimes I over think things and in reading some blogs it just made me realize how simple some of this really is this blog is my personal space, my safe haven, where I share my ups downs highs and lows about (trying) making my way in the fashion industry. It’s important to me to get this store up and running because God has given me something to do…it’s not just about the laws of fashion but changing the game as to what you can be…what you can do. I think we sometimes fail to remember that with God NOTHING AND I DO MEAN NOT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!! Philippians 4:13 will always be one of my favorite scriptures because it empowers me! We have remember that we are a chosen generation and it’s our TIME to DO whatever it is that we want to do!! Everything started off as a dream now what are you going to do with it. This…MY business is set up to let you know dreams do come true and that this shy little girl from Gary, IN is now grown up into a Beautiful, God fearing, Fashion Forward, Forever Fly, Uniquely and Divinely created individual! Fashion is to inspire…it can inspire others while you inspire it! So again I thank you for traveling with me on this journey called 4 the Life of M.E.

H&M Body Conscious

25 Apr

Hey Hey Y’all!!!

It’s been a minute, I know but life has been hectic for me lately but we won’t dive into that right now because I want to talk about one of my favorite brands H&M. I watch them closely because I’m so inspired by them. They constantly are re-inventing themselves and I am in love with the concept of their new line called Body Conscious where all of the clothing is made out of recycled material! Genius right! And everything is so GORGEOUS. When I think of recycled material I don’t initially think couture or high fashion…I think earthy laid back casual but it’s the complete opposite. They have done an awesome job with the designs! Check out the pics below and let me know what you think!!!

Later Loves!
