Turning 29: Lessons I Learned in My Twenties

So today is my 29th birthday… I am so thankful to see another birthday.  I have one more year to the BIG 3-0. To be really honest, I am kinda scared of getting older.  Simply I am afraid of the unknown and becoming irrelevant.  I recently was saying this in a previous post, simply discussing my plans as a 29 years old and so forth. To change my thoughts on the fear, I decided it would be best to focus and admire my growth. Growth in life is key. I am not the same girl I use to be, and I am so thankful. Instead of getting hyped up for about premature thoughts on getting older…. I am going to embrace my life, my age, and admire my growth! To admire my growth here are 29 things I have learned in my 20s. You can’t pour from an empty glass: I learned in order to be my best self, I have to make sure I take time to take care of myself. While working and blogging I learn that I had to invest more time for self and mental care. So every day now I take 10 minutes or more …

Turning 29: How I Am Spending My Last Year of My Twenties

On Thursday I will be celebrating my 29th birthday. I can not believe how fast time as gone by. It is really the last birthday of my 20s. I have to be really frank, I feel some time of way.  I am dreading my 30s. So my fears towards getting older are becoming irrelevant and uncool. Little kids are actually calling me ancient- Can you believe that?! I am very fearful of becoming irrelevant- like I don’t matter anymore to society.  I also dread my 30s because I feel like I am losing time, fear of not being accomplished.  I had my life planned out a certain, clearly life had other plans for me. So I am feeling insecure about a lot of things. Not being successful. No husband. Stilling renting. Just a lot of things I thought would have been different. Also I put this burden on my back that I am too old to do certain things. Like learn a new language, or to swim. Anyway I have subscribed to the negatives stereotypes of becoming older.  I am challenging myself to break out of chains that I put upon myself. Living Life does not stop at the end of …

Bye Bye 2018: My Small Reflection

We are right on the cusp of 2018.  I felt compel to write a brief reflection today. I have to be all the way 100, I am so thankful that 2018 is near the end. For me it has been up and down roller coaster. Maybe even a love/hate relationship. I think that sounds better. HAHA. 2018 I had so many highlights. I can really say it was the year of doors being open for me. I was given the opportunity to collaborate with some many brands. Collaborating with Forever 21 was one of the greatest accomplishment that I faced as bloggers.  I still get chills when I think about. Also, collaborating with TomboyX help me feel more confident to bare it all with their super comfortable underwear. 2018 also allow me to network and meet so many wonderful folks.  Going to all the Femology Detroit events really reassure my confidences.  Lastly, I was given the opportunity to collaborate with amazing photographers in city. I am so thankful for them all because they make the quality on my blog that much better. On another note, 2018 would not be complete if I did not learn a few lesson. Accountability, self …

It’s December

We are in the home-stretch now, right at the end of the year. We have less than 31 days to the New Years. Time has flown and I do not know where it went. It always seems like as soon as we enter into December, time is on auto speed. Wooah!   Can we all just say 2018 was super crazy? 2018 has been on an up and down roller coaster. One moment I was having a good time and everything was going great for me. Then the next thing I know it was a total shit show. (Side note: Excuse my language…. I had no other words to use to express how I feel about the lows) December is always a love-hate time for me. I love that it is near the end where I can start over and reinvent, however I feel like I am under a lot of pressure. Some times it take me out of the holiday cheer, I do not like that at all. Instead of being caught up in the rat race of hectic behavior, I decided I am going to focus on calm. Calmly, I am going to take all the things on …

There is literally 2 months/9 weeks left in 2018. So we have to make the last few days left  count. November is one of my favorite months because of Thanksgiving. I can’t wait to eat my mom’s home cooking. Dressing (aka stuffing), Collard Greens, Chicken,  and Sweet Potato pie. Omg my mouth is watering right now. Another reason why I love this month is because I really get to focus hard on gratitude.  Now yes we are supposed to be thankful everyday, but this month really help put things into perspective for me. I have a lot to be thankful in general however this month I have a whole lot to be thankful for. So with that being said what is to come to FashionLayn this month?
