Fuzzy Wuzzy

If you’re living on the East Coast, you know that winter is still very present. I’ve learned over the years to try and make friends with this horrible cold and dress more appropriately. Luckily, there are some cute trends out this F/W that are inspiring to me. My favorite trend that works with my personal style is the “fuzzy” sweater. Besides the warmth, the fuzzy look gives it a very cozy and angel- like feeling. I’ve seen these sweaters all over the place but the ones below are some of my personal favorites. So, this winter you can stay fashionable and warm. 🙂

Ciara looking lovely in pink 🙂 Personally, I like these types of sweaters in more pastel colors or even just a white. It adds a more innocent look to it.

February Passion

Although it’s not the FIRST day of February it’s the beginning of the month, the BEST month! Besides my Birthday month I feel like February is always full of passion and love. On Valentine’s Day we celebrate the love in our lives, whether it’s one person or a bunch of friends 🙂 it’s all love. Also, February is Black History Month where we can commemorate African-American culture and history. Another fun fact– Hershey’s chocolate was founded in 1894 on February 9th! Yessss, for all my chocolate lovers out there – where would we be without this month?! 🙂 🙂

Newness-Realness-

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending

– Maria Robinson

This past week I’ve been reflecting a lot about the past year and the newness* that’s ahead. 2011 was a trying year for me but as with everything there is beauty in all struggle. I’ve learned more about myself than I have in any other year. I was pushed to my limits and beyond, but I remained myself through it all. I am excited to welcome this new year with much optimism and hopefulness. Every morning when I wake up I feel like the world is mine. And that’s no Miss Badu quote, that’s truth. It’s all about how much you put out to get yourself to where you want to be. I feel that in this new year my determination will only keep escalating until I reach my full potential. Then when I’m there, set higher standards.

As far as resolutions, I want to read more books in this new year. Over the summer I was commuting from NJ to NY every other day and had so much more down time to read. Whether it be on the train or at my favorite park in Dumbo, BK I always had a book with me. Once fall started I lost my passion due to all the work I had with school and most of all the time.  I definitely want to spend more time in bookstores and getting back to my passion for reading.

Going to more art galleries and museums is a must as well! I love art and it inspires me so much. I want to continue to channel my creative side and explore more of the arts.

Also, I want to start smiling more often to strangers. Lol..If it sounds strange to you, try it! It’s such a quick boost of happiness 🙂 It’s really determined to make you feel better AND the best accessory right next to confidence of course 😉  

2012 I welcome you with hope, love, determination, courage, confidence, and lots of bright smiles.

Glitz & Glamour

NYE is almost here and all the ladies know what that mean! Time to pull out the freakum dress. Every year I buy a new outfit, usually dress, to welcome the New and fresh Year. 2012 is full of endless opportunities and bountiful happiness and I just can’t wait to welcome it with all the glitz and glamour. There is something so refreshing about buying a new dress and getting glamorous for this night. Remember to wear something that accentuates your favorite body part..Sleeveless/form-fitting/short/a-symmetrical//wear what makes YOU feel good, that way you will S H I N E.

Happy Thanksgiving Naturalistas!

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.  ~Theodore Roosevelt
