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

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!

Their website is so dope. I love the imagery! It’s very chic and I believe it would be easy to navigate if we were not currently crashing the site. (ha issawin!) I also love the fact that they have placed their clothing on actual different sized plus models. The models chosen by Nicolette and Gabi are sizes 16, 20, 24, and 26.  This gives us an idea of how the apparel would look on your body type.

So I was FINALLY able to get in and place an ORDER! Below are the items I got.

Their capsule collection will only sell limited amount of items and once they have sold out they won’t be restocked!  I look forward to seeing how this brand expands and I will definitely post pics once my items have been received so be on the lookout SHAWTY!!

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!!

One of the most important things in styling yourself is knowing your body type. I came across and excellent resource on Pinterest from IGIGI for the curvacious beauties that gives you a good detailed description on your body type and what styles complement it so I thought I would share with all of you beauties

DAY DREAMING AND I’M THINKING OF YOU….

8 Mar

IMG950485I often run across people who feel like that dreams are just that…a dream. 4 the Life of ME I can’t understand why people are so afraid to go after what they want. Every idea started off as a dream right? I have always been a big DAY DREAMER. Give me a quiet moment and I can create a whole new world in my mind. Well Sunday I got the opportunity to be up close to another one of my dreams which is to ride in a helicopter one day…(why not?) OWN a helicopter one day. I was pulling up in the parking lot at my church and there it was our minsitry (Spirit of Faith Christian Center) helicopter just chillen. Soooo I just had to TAKE A PICTURE!! I was waaaaayy to excited, like I was about to ride. So before anyone else pulled up or told us to get away from it I told my girls to come on and take these pictures (I also was in love with my outfit this day)as I pretended in my mind that this Helicopter was there for me and I was about to take off to New York and meet up with some important people about the Fall designs for my clothing store 🙂 My Pastor is always talking about  planting seeds. I am always planting seeds in my spirit for my next level of living. I walk in to stores where I know at the moment I can’t afford anything but I’m planting a seed. I’m motivating my self to get to my next place in life. Don’t let your dream just be a dream go after yours. Who told you that you couldn’t do? You talk yourself out an idea before you even give yourself a chance to even TRY! 

It’s not what you think you are that’s  holding you back it’s what you think you are not that’s holding you back“~Pastor Dewayne
