Own Your Wardrobe!

Hello,

I visited Treehouse Vineyards this past weekend and had a blast. It was nice recharging my batteries and relax a bit. I guess you could say that I was inspired by nature. This time of year, the leaves are changing and it’s so beautiful to witness. Some say you shouldn’t mix yellow and brown and red. I will admit I thought I would look like a hot dog at first but I really liked mixing these colors. Fashion is supposed to be fun. If you like mixing colors, do it. If your wardrobe consists of only black and you like it, own it! I think the moment we stop wearing what expresses who we are is the moment fashion stops being the creative force it was it intended to be. So whatever your wardrobe consists of, as long as it expresses who you are, own it!

Multifaceted Lifestyle 

Hello!

   I hope you are having a great weekend. I created Queen Styles Boutique for the woman who has a multifaceted lifestyle. I created Queen Styles Boutique for the young professional woman who needs clothes that she can wear for her new career and out to brunch. Clothes that she can rock to that interview and wear to run errands or out for drinks with the perfect accessories. She is most likely on a budget and needs her money to stretch. I selected these pieces because they are east to mix and match. You can dress them up or down like these culottes and grey shirt. This pair was so easy to dress down today. It’s a cold and rainy Sunday in North Carolina which calls for comfortable clothes!


You can shop these culottes here: https://queenstylesboutique.com/collections/all/products/black-culottes-with-side-split

I hope you have a great week ahead!

What No One Tells You About Being a Girlboss

Hello!

   As you may know, I’ve launched my own clothing boutique and I couldn’t be more proud. It’s my baby. I’ve dreamed of having my own business for years but I never thought it would actually happen for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love being an entrepreneur. I love being the CEO. I love doing something that I’m passionate about. However, it’s hard work! Is it just me or did anyone else look at the images of entrepreneurs on social media and think “wow, that looks easy”? I know now that being an entrepreneur means:

1. Fulfilling orders on a Friday night. 

2. Answering emails at midnight. 

3. Conducting industry and customer research in between meals. 

4. Having to motivate myself when I feel so uninspired. 

5. Not playing the comparison game with another Girl Boss’s business. 

6. Having to turn down social events in order to fully focus on my business. 

7. Setting aside hours to plan and create content. 

8. Feeling isolated sometimes being that I’m the only employee. 

I say all of this, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s an unexplainable feeling of having something that’s yours. There’s an unexplainable feeling to watch your business grow. So, to anyone who’s on the fence about starting your own business: what are you waiting for? 


If you have any advice on how you deal with being an entrepreneur, I’d love to hear it! Feel free to leave your comment below. You can shop Queen Styles Boutique and build your fall wardrobe.

Trip to Aspen, Colorado 

Hello!

  For my anniversary with my husband, we went to Aspen, Colorado. It was breathtaking. The people there were rarely on their phones and spent time reading newspapers. It reminded us that we needed to slow down too. We packed only a carry-on bag so I didn’t have room to bring my camera but I did take some pictures: 

 

Right before our couples massage. It was so relaxing!

We rode a gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain. It was beautiful! 

It snowed on and off for two days!

It was a wonderful trip!

Growth 

Hello,

   This past week, I celebrated my birthday. I celebrate my birthday for a full week. I believe that your birthday is not “just another day.” Your birthday is a gift. You e been gifted with another year of life and that should be celebrated. It was a great day to do some self-reflection. I realized that I’ve come a long way. I’m not as critical of myself and I’m way more balanced than I was a year ago. I’m a lot more patient with myself and less judgmental of my emotions.  I’m not perfect, of course but I think recognizing my growth is a step in the right direction towards my purpose. 

  It might not be your birthday but maybe you need some self-reflection. When was the last time you were kind to yourself? The last time you were sad, angry, or upset did you judge yourself or acknowledge that you are a human being who has emotions? Moving forward, lets both take a vow that we’ll choose to be a lot kinder to ourselves.

You Are Loved

Hello,

   Get this down in your spirit: you are loved. It doesn’t matter what you mistakes you’ve made, God has a never ending love for you. God loves you right where you are. He loves the real you and there is nothing you can do about it! As children of the Most High, we have direct access to a God who pursues us with His love even when we make mistakes. As you go about your week, rest in the fact that His faithful love is pursuing you. 

Self Care & Relaxation 

Hello,

   I had a conversation with my esthetician today and we both were talking about things we used to do. For example, we used to take relaxing epsom salt baths but due to our schedules getting busy, we’ve stopped. I get it, we’re all busy nowadays but we need to make ourselves a priority. So I made it my mission today to take some time out for me and have a relaxing bath. It might not seem like much but it was exactly what I needed. Reading this, I hope you realize that you’re worth being a priority on your to-do list.  

All Things are Working for Your Good. 

Hello,

  Know in this moment, God is working ALL things for your good. Let this be your reminder that you are God’s biggest deal, and He loves to see you win! This includes the “good” and the “bad” stuff. He can and will work it out for your benefit. So you can rest easily in whatever is going on in your life. God has you in the palm of His hands. I’m talking about this a little further on my website for my boutique

Great Things Never Come From Comfort Zones 

Hello!

   Yesterday my boutique got to be apart of an event called The Beauty Standard. It’s an event that happens annually in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. At this event, the focus is celebrating the diversity of beauty. While I was at this event, I had the opportunity to sell some of the clothes I have at Queen Styles Boutique. It was fun but hard. It’s not my personality to speak with lot of people. I’m an introvert. Not that I’m shy but I just process my energy differently. I recharge my batteries when I’m alone, not when I’m with people. While I was at this event, I had to remind myself that great things are never accomplished from comfort zones. I kept pushing myself out of my comfort zone and accomplished goals I set for myself. Whatever you’re dreaming about, remember that great things won’t come from your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to push yourself to get what you want. Here’s a picture of my booth:
