Happy New Year!!!!

Happy New Year Eve…

Wowzers… I can’t believe how fast this year has went by. Seem like just yesterday I was writing my 2013 Blog Post.

I'm going to try and keep this as quick as possible because I know NOBODY out there in the blog world is sitting around blogging and/or reading blogs right now… Besides, there’s so much I could say but so little of time. 1st off I hope everyone had a wonderfully blessed Christmas.

My Girls & I on Christmas Morning

Toasting to a successful Christmas Exchange

We are the type of household where you have to wear socks (no shoes) in the house... BUT we provide all our guest with FREE BRAND NEW SOCKS!

I REALLY want to keep my table like this all year round... *sigh* lol

It’s funny how fast time flies when you are having fun. 2013 has been incredible I was able to go on 10 (yes, ten) Vacations and that’s not including weekend getaways. I must honesty say: GOD IS GREAT!!!!

I wouldn’t change ANYTHING about this year because it has been a true blessing!!!! It was some things that happen that I’ve yet to share with folks and only my close family and friends know but just know God just keep on blessing. Sometimes it brings tears to my eyes just to know how GREAT is our GOD!

But here's a few highlights of this year...

I did a Vision Board last year and I can honestly say that I was and still am completely overjoyed... Every day I look at my 2013 Vision Board & every day I get closer & closer to my vision being fulfilled!!!! As the day went by another vision came to pass!!!!

 My #Faithnista™ T-shirt line was officially launched!!!!! Can't nobody tell me... Dreams & Visions don't come true!!!! ~As cliche as it may sound: If you dream it, believe it, and you shall receive it!!!!! If you haven't already started working on your 2014 Vision Board I suggest you get to it...  The VISION is REAL!!!!!

This video is of my 5 most liked IG photos...  

Here are a few pics that I've posted n IG today but didn't make the blog... 

My New Years Nails

Taken last month prior to me getting my braids

2013 Confession: I've NEVER wanted to be called "skinny" when I use to hear that word I immediately would think of "Olive Oyl" from the cartoon Popeye and all came to mind is big ole head, big feet goof-ball of a woman but that's the trick of the enemy because that doesn't define me... I've learn to LOVE & accept me for WHO I am!!!! I may NOT be your ideal size but GOD thinks I'm to DIE for!!!! We ALL are beautiful & wonderfully created no matter your size, sex, or color LOVE thyself... There's NO other LOVE that is greater than self-LOVE & GOD LOVE!!!! Don't insult GOD... He make NO mistakes & he made you just the way he wanted you to be... Uniquely You!!!!

Some folks won't share their flaws they too busy concerned about what the WORLD think of them instead of sharing their story to help somebody else... I could've kept this to myself but I'm sure I'm NOT the only person that's dealing with a word or words that may NOT be liked but don't let it define you... Allow it to help you & to help someone else! #SelfLove #BeYou #UniquelyYou #LoveThyself #SelfWorth #GodChilds #KingKid #Faithnista™

Hubby & I came in this year as LAKERS Fan and will always be LAKERS FAN!

This is me today... Headed to run some errands! Inspired by @abyjoe via Instagram -  I will be doing more Style Snatchin' in 2014 so stay tune!

I don't know what 2014 has in store but I TRUST GOD!!!!

~ See you guys Next Year ~

NOTE TO YOU: Remember: If you drink; don’t drive… Wishing you and yours a Safe & Prosperous New Year!!!!

~Until Next Time

Happy Christmas Eve Eve…

My next few hours will consist of retail shopping, grocery shopping, wrapping gifts, cooking, watching Christmas Movies and sipping on cider!    

This is by far one of my favorite times of the year… I LOVE EVERYTHING about Christmas from the crowded department stores to the Christmas lights. However, I know that some folks are totally opposite when it comes to the “Holiday Season” rather it’s because of No Money, No Job, Lost Love ones or whatever the reason may be. I’m praying for those persons  strength and encouraging each and every one of you to reach out to someone even if that someone is a stranger offer them an encouraging word and/or smile. You NEVER know what someone may be going through.  

Here are a few of my holiday festivities pics thus far:
*** Picture Heavy ***


Don’t be a GRINCH… celebrate with what you got and God will bless you with what you need. It doesn’t matter how BIG your bank account is… what matters is how BIG your heart is!!!!

NOTE TO YOU: I did NOT spend out this year like I have in the past and I feel WONDERFUL about it.

I cannot go without saying: Jesus is the REASON for the SEASON!!!!

**** Merry CHRISTmas ****

Wordless Wednesday… Candle Creations!

Happy HuMp Day…

I’m just here for a quick minute to share my latest creations with you all.

 I’m currently still taking orders but Friday December 22nd will be my last day for all Christmas orders.

These have been a really BIG hit… The small candles are $7.50 & $15 for the Large Candle.

Any picture and wording can be added to the candles... front and back. 

The candles only come in “white” and "beige" as colored candles tend to bleed when heat is applied to them and cause discoloration on the pictures so for now I’m sticking to the white candles.

NOTE TO YOU: What’s cooler than personalize gifts????  

~Until Next Time

Repeat Offender… 3 PEAT!

If you saw my Instagram post on yesterday then you may have saw me mention the fact that folks don’t like to post an outfit that they have already worn on social media twice. IDK WHO invented that so call RULE but to me that’s CRAP! But then again I’m not here to argue with the masses I’m just here to state (my situation) “my case” and my case only! I can’t speak for the next person but as for me I do REPEAT my outfits. I’m not in competition with no one nor am I’m trying to impress anyone. I shop on a budget and I know my budget… I try and make the best of that budget by rotating my clothes and shopping my closet to get the BEST wear out of my outfits.


Simply put: you can change a top/shoe/blazer and/or accessories to make an outfit look totally different. But with this outfit I pretty much colored inside the lines and didn’t change much but you will see it AGAIN, and maybe AGAIN styled with a different color blazer, shoes, and accessories.

Not everyone is going to like what you wear anyway so why try and please folks on social media that could probably careless about you… Most folks will do anything just to gain a LIKE or too. Oops, there I go ago… Shhh… I’m just going to stay in my lane and maintain my own wardrobe.

Dress: Thrifted
Necklace: Gifted
Blazer: Unknown (old)
Shoes: Blue Booties - JustFab Blue Heeless: Boutique Sponsored Black Boots: Gifted

 As for me… I try to be as authentic as I know how and show you guys what I actually wear to work, church, and/or play. For me this is “REAL LIFE” and I try to give you all just that so what you see is what you get.

My outfit is not quite along the lines but it is casual & sparkly (considering my statement necklace) and I did not know the Mamanista's Mama Fashion Files
& The Baby Shopaholic had already started their link-up party but I’m still linking up anyway. Lol   

*Sorry, for the cellphone pics again… 2014 will be better*

NOTE TO YOU: I know a lot of my readers are Fashionista’s and bless you if you don’t wear the same thing twice… but this post wasn’t directed at anyone in particular this was just my honest opinion. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and witness my 3 PEATS!   

~Until Next Time
