Yes, I know Easter was yesterday but I wasn’t able to blog. I spent my day with my husband. We went to church and then dinner. It was a low-key Easter for us but it’s one that I needed. Easter is a great day to be reminded of hope. It’s a day that reminds me no matter what I’m facing, there’s always the presence of victory in the near future. Whatever you’re facing today, know that you are loved and victory is in your near future! I hope you enjoyed Easter with people you love.
I love this midi-skirt I found. The color adds just enough pop to any outfit. Here’s what I wore:
Skirt: New York & Company
Shirt: Forever 21
P.S.- My face is still swollen from getting braces.

TGIF! I’m so happy it’s Friday plus it’s Good Friday which is something to be happy about. Another thing I am happy about is the fact that today starts my Spring Break! I won’t be taking a trip this year but it’s still a great time to decompress and relax. One of the ways I like to do that is just by taking a walk. It doesn’t have to be a workout every time but every now and then I like to just sit back and admire nature. It’s an inexpensive way to have a quick change in scenery.

I hope you all enjoyed the first day of spring over this past weekend. We opted for a quick getaway. The weather has been so nice so we decided to explore the downtown area of Greenville. It was relaxing walking around and taking everything into perspective. Recently, I’ve been focusing on things in the future. There’s nothing wrong with making goals for yourself and focusing on the future but sometimes by focusing solely on what you want to happen “x” amount of months from now, you miss out on what’s going on right now in your life. I think we are all guilty of it. I certainly am. Where you are right now, is exactly where you are meant to be. It may not be where you want to be but enjoy the present. Maybe you’re supposed to learn a lesson or something new about yourself but enjoy where you are. That idea really resonated with me this weekend. Maybe it’s something you need to consider too. Just food for thought.

We usually use Sunday Funday in order to help us relax before the week. This Sunday we are also celebrating my husband’s birthday! I’m so blessed to have him as my husband and best friend. I love this shirt from Freedom House. It makes me wonder about how I’m leaving my mark. I want to make sure that I’m doing my part to make an impact. Whether I do that by blogging and talking about certain issues or just being kind to someone. I hope you have asked yourself how you’re leaving a mark of making an impact too. We all have a part to play in how we impact others.

Spring is almost here! With the weather warming up just a bit and the sun out, I decided to wear shorts today. I’ve shared that one of the reasons I used to get made fun of was due to my legs. I was tall and lanky growing up, which meant that I looked different. I used to hate wearing shorts, skirts and dresses. Now, I’ve learned to embrace my lanky legs whenever I can. They’re just one of the factors that make me unique. Whatever makes you unique, embrace it!
P.S.- I know these kicks are a little spotted on the tip but I still love them!
This quarter has really an intense one but I’m happy that I decided to get another degree in a subject that I love: fashion marketing. Life is too short not to go for your dreams! I’m so happy that I decided to take that step. This weekend, the weather has been so great so I’ve been trying to take study breaks here and there . After church we went out in the uptown area and had some fun. Here’s what I wore:
Shirt: Old Navy
Sleeveless Jacket: TJ Maxx
I’ve been so busy with school and work this past week. I stepped out for a bit just to catch some fresh air. I had to remind myself that just because you are busy, doesn’t mean you are being productive. Everynow and then it’s important to stop and enjoy life. Wherever you are, maybe you’re where you want to be in life right now and maybe you’re not but remember to enjoy the journey.
