March First…

Happy Monday everyone! How was the month of February for you? Did you enjoy your extra day? Well the month of February treated me pretty good. On today’s post I am reflecting, sharing my personal goals, latest fashion style & trends, and a brief blog note for the month of March. For me, February seem like it was the longest month ever. It was good but certainly long. Fashion wise I tried some new brands; those pieces were great. On the blog tip, it was the one of the most successful blog months I had.  And personally, I was a social butterfly. I went on date. Hehe lol. Overall it was a great month and I was not sweating over the small stuff, just living life.  Related : February First… So the month of March  is going to be lit.

February First…

Happy Monday! How was your January for? As most of y’all would say “January was a trial, I’m going start again in February”. Sis, I get it! January towards the end was really heavy. It certainly left most of us in a whirlwind of emotions. On today’s post I am reflecting, sharing my personal goals, latest fashion style & trends, and a brief blog note. For me, January was full of excitement, chill, with some sadness. However, I was able to celebrate my life. I turned 30 and brought in my birthday in Vegas with some of my closest friends. To add to the excitement I shared my 30 thoughts on turning 30. So many thoughts, to check it out click here.  I had a lot of fun and overcome with a lot of emotions. With our beloved, Kobe and daughter Gigi’s  death on our shoulder it certainly put us all in state of shock and disbelief. The tragic death of those in the helicopter brought me back to reality. Life is so fragile. Our life is so precious.  I learned that we need to value our time on this planet. We all have an expiration date, so we need …

I’m 30! 30 Thoughts On Turning 30

Today is the Big 3-0! Happy birthday to me! I am especially thankful to see another year. Today I celebrate my birthday, my life, and very big milestone. Just this time last year, I was writing that I was afraid to get older. Nothing like a young person telling you, 30 is old. Sheesh I would believe them. I was in this weird place about it because the world tells you by 30 you should have all together and figured out, or you hit expiration date on a personal level. What kinda of bs is that? Anyway, I told myself that I was going to embrace my new life, and not get caught up in premature thoughts on being a 30 year old. It is just another great day for me! 30s are definitely the new twenties. Life is going to get better at this point. On today’s post I am sharing 30 thoughts on being a 30 year old! I’m not getting older, I’m getting better! 30 Thoughts On Turning 30 1. Age is a state of mind. I am thirty but that does not make me old. If you believe and tell people you are old… inevitably you …
