Fight Yourself

Proverbs 4:23
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.

In our journey towards success, whatever that means to each of us, many times our greatest opponent is ourselves, our thoughts. In trying to elevate we can sometimes find ourselves questioning why we think we are good enough to reach the top and be a boss at whatever our God given niche is. It becomes a fight where we literally have to overcome those thoughts with good thoughts. 

Many times throughout this week I have had to combat thoughts of self denial. I have had to tell myself to keep going because there is in fact a prize at the end of all of the hard work.I just want to encourage us to guard the thoughts we harbor in our hearts. Guard it because as the word says out of those thoughts our lives are shaped. We are prompted to act based on what we think about ourselves. God thinks great things for us, so we indeed should do the same. No, you are not conceited or "big headed" if you think you will accomplish great things. With big thoughts you are simply aligning your mind with the mind of God towards you. 

Even with our wildest dreams and biggest desires we cannot out think Gods plans. Don't believe it? Then believe the word, Ephesians 3:20 "Now unto Him who is able to do exceedingly. abundantly more than we could ask or think, according to the power that works in us". Tell yourself today, "I will become my greatest self through Christ". Tell yourself again...and then again until you believe it with all your heart and until when those thoughts come you have the strength to dismiss them because you now believe God more than you believe yourself and the enemy.

Distressed denim pencil skirt with a pop of color


And We're Back! Today is the first day of summer which makes no difference here in Florida, but happy summer to everyone! We have this distressed denim pencil skirt with this pop of color in the form of an off the shoulder top. 


Top: I love the knitted hem detail on this top, it just makes it so flirty and fun. This top is incredibly comfortable and easy to put on. You know some of these tops with the unique cuts outs are sometimes difficult to get on, lol well at least for me anyway. It's nice and airy and perfect for summer that is already upon us. 


Distress denim skirt: I bought this skirt years ago! They are now becoming more popular so I'm glad I held on to this one. It hugs in all the right places without being too much. What I love about denim is that it can be dressed up or down. This outfit can easily be turned into something more casual with some flats or more dressy by throwing on a sleeveless vest. 


Purse: This pure is a noname brand that I picked up on my usual trip to TJ Maxx. What caught my eye is the gold stitching that is in the pattern. I love gold just in case you did know I'm slightly obsessed with everything gold!

Nude Heels: You just can't go wrong with a pair of strappy nude heels ladies. whether causal, semi casual or super dressy these just work. It blends in very nicely with this outfit and I love it. 


Sunglasses: These are an essential summer item. It's awesome that they serve a purpose and make your outfit cuter at the same time. These Lucky brand sunglassess match my face shape very well and the nude color means I can wear it all summer long with any outfit.

I can see myself wearing this ensemble to brunch which I am also currently obsessed with.
What do you beauties think of this outfit and how would you style it differently?


Thanks for stopping by!

Our greatest fear

2 Timothy 1:6-7
This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

The line "our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measures" is literally the cry of our generation today. We were created with gifts to change this world. Some of us are fearful to begin, some of us don't believe in ourselves, some just don't want to put in the work. We have allowed the voice and tactics of the enemy to buffet us. We have slept and now we're coming to awake to find that this life or death battle is still being fought weather we participate or not. Only our post is fallen because we didn't stand watch.
Time is going by so quickly and there are so many areas that need to be impacted. Let's not leave this earth with all the greatness left inside of us, that would be a tragedy. Let's pray and seek the face of our God concerning what He designed us for and push to become those things. Don't die with everything left in you. Pour it out on your school, your job, your household, your community, the world. Do some soul searching and determine what things in your life are hindering you from being living in purpose, from being that world changer. For me personally, it's how I prioritize my time. I've been praying and I already see a difference. Get started everyone, The world is waiting.

Outfit Post: DR2 dress X Anne Klein Purse

Hey Beauties!

I hope you all are doing well. It's been super wet and rainy here in south Florida, but that won't stop the outfits from being on point. 


Today I have this dress that I love so so much. I picked it up at TJ Maxx and what caught my eye was the color palette. I love the contrast of the burgundy, purple and white against the dark blue. I especially enjoy the two pleats that flare from the side when the wind blows or when I turn. It just gives so much personality to the dress. 

I paired it with these burgundy heels. They are super cute and comfortable which is a win win for me. This purse is my new favorite by Anne Klein, it's not too big, not the small, just perfect and very sturdy and well made. 

This outfit I've worn to a birthday dinner and church so far. I look forward to dressing it down with some cute flats in the near future. 
Enjoy the pictures!

Let it flow

Hello Beautiful people! I've been reluctant to start blogging again, but it feels so good to be posting again. I've grown a great deal and I'm ready to share with you all the greatness that is ahead!



Today I put together a very simple fit. 
I love the lace up details from the top and the flowiness of this skirt!
I paired them with some nude heels because you just can't go wrong with that.
I loved the contrast of the two colors. 
Let me  know what you all think.

Try, Try Again

Remember that saying we always heard when we were younger? "If at first you don't succeed then try, try again". Today I am encouraging someone to try again. So you that thing you were aiming for didn't go quite as planned, so what? pick up the pieces, learn from the mistakes and just try again. No successful individual got where they are by quitting. They got there by fighting the feelings to quit. Whatever it is you feel you failed at, if it is something you truly desire, try again.

Matthew 19:26
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
