Who Are You Becoming

Ever looked yourself in the mirror and asked yourself, Who Am I Becoming?

I sat and actually had to think and realized that if I told someone the foolishness that I have done in my life you might – no you will look at me differently. You might say that in no way could she be married today, in no way could she be a First Lady in church, in no way could she be a mentor to young women. But the reality is that I am her and she was me.

Very early on I had a plan for my life. Didn’t really care what God’s plan was but I had a plan. My plan was to marry young, have children, live in a house and be set for life financially. So when my plan wasn’t going according to plan, I felt as if I failed. But I had to realize that my failed plan was God’s plan succeeding. I had to realize that HIS plan is much bigger than the plan that I had for myself. Continue reading “Who Are You Becoming”

To Answer All of Your Questions…

I HATE THE WINTER!!!!! I’m such a spring baby that I prefer the weather when it is not cold at all and not scorching hot. A more relaxed temperature is good for me. But who actually gets what they want right? LOL.

On Tuesday and Wednesday I posted pics of myself on social media and people keep asking about my coat, glasses, hats etc. So I figured I’d give you a little info.

My coat is from is from (HERE) but I actually don’t see it on the site anymore, so you may need to physically go into the store. Continue reading “To Answer All of Your Questions…”

Big Plaid Scarves

Hey Luvs!!!! How’s it going?

So, for us New Yorker’s, it has been FREEZING!!!!! But nothing that we aren’t use to right? Or if you’re like me, you just don’t get use to this. Every winter is like a cold air shocker. I always have to talk myself into putting on a hat, putting on a heavy coat, convincing myself that I need to put on leggings or something under my pants etc. But wearing scarves is nothing I have to talk myself into because they’re fashionable. While I don’t think I am that fashionable, I like scarves.

Last year, these really huge scarves were a trend. I was in Urban Outfitters with my husband and begged him to buy me one. But guess what, I never wore it because I could not understand how to wear it. Continue reading “Big Plaid Scarves”

A Better Me, A Better You

Many would look at this picture and take it has she is just shedding the physical weight from her body. While that is great, I see something much deeper.

When you shed physical weight from your body, I believe that you get rid of the old and embrace the new. After all, you’ll need to purchase new clothes and everything else for your new body right. But you also become a different person and hopefully a better person. You’re mentality changes. Your outlook on life changes.

I have been in a place of trying to be a better me. That means, adjusting my attitude, because I know I have a bad one but it took for me to actually look myself in the mirror and recognize for me that my attitude is horrible. So, if I can look in the mirror and see that, can you imagine what others might see? My responses to things can also be crazy. I am the type where I say exactly how I feel and can honestly care less of how anyone feels. And then I have heard all of my life that I look mean and I really am not. But it is soooooo annoying when you hear, “fix your face” or “you look mean”. I’m working on it, honestly I am. I really have to coach myself in my head to be nice and to smile etc. Continue reading “A Better Me, A Better You”

My Holiday Gifts

OMG! It’s been so long since I’ve posted I have so much to catch up on. So of course my husband and I celebrate Hannukah and not Christmas. Hannukah is about a week and a half before Christmas and it last for 8 days. Every day you are supposed to receive a gift. Now 2014 i went so hard making sure I had 8 gifts but of course I did give him one every day, it got to the point where as they were coming in the mail I just gave them to him. But this year, since we did our wedding ceremony and reception, we decided not to exchange gifts and instead catch up on all our bills and bring everything to a zero balance which we did! I did however get him a sweater jacket from his favorite brand (just couldn’t let the holiday go by and i not get him something). He was soooooo hyped about that sweater, which made me happy. But last week Wednesday, my husband walked in the house with these two items that I have been wanting for a minute now. Continue reading “My Holiday Gifts”

2016!!!!!

Hey luvs! Happy New Year!!!! How did you spend yours? Me, home with my doggy baby waiting for the hubster to get in from work.

Since I’m not into the whole New Years resolution or the ‘New Year, New Me’ thing but I do believe that every month you should set new goals that you should achieve before the end of the month. So, what are your goals for January or even for the next few months? Me, I’ve started blogging and my YouTube Channel (Here) so I’m trying to grow it. This month I have a certain amount of post that I need to do by the end of the month and certain videos I want to do by the end of the month. I also have my personal goal of actually going to the gym. If you’re like me, you don’t mind attending the gym but just hate attending alone. But I challenge myself to do better. I don’t have many that I actually call my friends and those that I do live no where near me :(. But I promise, I am going to do better! I actually plan to go today. Stay tuned…. I also have a book that I am reading that I must finish before the end of the month. The book is Lost & Found by Sarah Jakes-Roberts. Great book so far. Continue reading “2016!!!!!”
