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?! 🙂 🙂

Golden Globe Fashion Recap

One of my favorite award shows has to be the Golden Globes. The gowns are always so classy and elegant but this is the time where some of the best add a little fun. I had way too many favorites this time I just had to re-cap them! I’m all about the ladies who try unique styles, for some it works and for some not so much. Kate Winslet in Jenny Packham was one of my faves simply because she is flawlessly beautiful she always picks the perfect yet simple dress that always works for her. Salma Hayak in Gucci was my TOP fave mostly because I want that dress! Charlize Theron in Dior Couture was another personal favorite because I loved the cut and blush tone on her skin- her hair was styled perfectly and she looked very goddess like. Nicole Richie in Julien Macdonald looked divine, her dress fit her amazingly and hey I will take that in my size as well! Ugh! *Sigh* Loved it all! Until next award show…

Check out my recap here! Altogether, these are my faves from the glamorous night at the Golden Globes.

Happy New Year!

To all my naturalista fashionista’s out there keep on shining and growing throughout this new year ! Hope it was a fab. one! Mine was super fun; enjoyed a lovely dinner with my ladies then went out in the village for some more fun. Kept my outfit with my mindset for 2012- bright and bold! H&M floral print dress and gold accessories 🙂 Can’t forget my velvet black boots though! 😉

 

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.
