Over the weekend I decided to take my son to a nearby park for a swing. The weather was beautiful so we didn’t need to dress extremely warm. My King and I spend everyday together but not much time is spent outdoors because by the time mommy gets home it’s already dark outside.

SheIn Review : SheIn Flats Review

Shein is an online clothing website based in China that sells affordable products. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this site but I couldn’t stop myself from doing my own research. The website sells attires that are trending, from these Olive Green Bomber Jackets to the all nude outfits and Trench Coats that everyone has been rocking this season. I’m not into trends but I think it’s a decent site for those who want to shop the latest trends for less.

DSC_0733Upon visiting the website, I stumbled upon these White Pointy Tassel PU Flats. If you haven’t noticed my footwear, I always wear pointy toed shoes. I feel like they suit long slender legs better than the ones that are rounded mouth. It didn’t take me long to add them to my shopping cart and checked out because I fell in love. But of course I read the reviews first. The good thing about Shein is that they have people who submit pictures and reviews. I even noticed buyers that are featured on the website in outfits they purchased in order to gain points. According to the website, when you earn enough points you can apply it to future purchases. I earned 27 points because I paid that amount for my flats.

10 Things I’ve Learned In My 20’s

As the years go by, you start maturing and getting a different outlook on life. It is normal for an individual in their twenties to think and approach things differently than when they were a teenager. I want to start off by saying, I’m a completely different woman than the girl I was 7 or 6 years ago. Most people who haven’t seen me in years are shocked because I’m not what they expected. My personality and demeanor changed tremendously. I have different values, goals and most importantly, I do what’s best for me and not what is expected of me. Maybe these particular individuals expected me to remain the same for some weird reason… Ha! I’ve always been the observant type of girl, didn’t speak much and never really expressed myself.  I’m proud to say I’m more outspoken, confident and I stand for what’s right. I’m also very passionate about my beliefs.

Here’s a list of things I’ve learned throughout the years.

Above all, I’ve learned not to take everything too seriously- I have to admit that in the past, I took most words thrown at me to heart or maybe I’m just a really deep thinker!

  • Time is one of the most valuable commodities we have so I try to use mine wisely. I had to ask myself this and I advise you to do the same.

How are you spending your days? If you knew you only had one month to live, how would you spend your time? Would you still hold grudges? Would you still be arrogant and remain angry at your enemies?

Or would you live happily, freely, appreciative and thankful? Life is too precious and so is every second of our time.

  • I’ve learned not to get too attached, but instead try to adjust to the many changes that will occur throughout my life. Sometimes it’s good to walk away from the things and the people who serves  us no purpose.
  • No matter how generous you are, not everyone will like you; as a matter of fact, people will hate you for no apparent reason. You just have to accept it and move on. As long as these folks stay in their own path and vice versa, that’s their problem, not yours. You can continue focusing  on being happy and living a wonderful drama free life, enjoying every breath of fresh air. You don’t have to waste your time and energy trying to convince another human being like you. Surround yourself with people who love and celebrate you.
  • I’ve learned to think before I speak. Sometimes the most innocent comments can do a lot of damaging to whomever  you’re directing it to.
  • Not to take life too seriously and loosen up a bit but also take precautions at the same time. I’ve been in a box my entire life, afraid to try new things in the fear of being perceived the wrong way. I started breaking out of my shell and realizing that I was much happier. I am now living for myself and not as the fictional image people created of me. My life, my choice!
  • No situation is permanent. As long as you have life, change will come. So keep the faith.
  • What you study is University is not always what you’ll do as a career in the future.
  • I want to travel more and spend quality time with my family, while having a stable career. I’m a very family oriented woman and I believe you should always show your loved ones how much you appreciate them.
  • I definitely learned that getting enough sleep is very important. Get your rest ladies, it will do more good than harm.
  • I’m the type of woman who plans her life. I write down all my goals and aspirations, like what I want to accomplish by a certain age. I take age very seriously but I’m starting to realize that life happens and things don’t always go the same way as planned.

Lady In Red: Red Waistcoat

I wore this outfit to my son’s Christening on Sunday. It was an amazing ceremony by the way. This attire  was unplanned  but I definitely loved the way it turned out. I went for a simple yet classy look because I didn’t want to look overdone. I wanted to show the beauty of this gorgeous vest coat so I decided to wear a little black bodycon dress underneath.

By now you could all tell that I love red lipstick. It is my favorite lip color of all time! I literally don’t feel like myself if I’m wearing any other color to a special occasion.A blazer or a vest always brings off a basic outfit and that’s the exact reason why I own so many. Most days I dress pretty simple but when I add a blazer to the outfit it changes the entire look.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Hello everyone ,

I’ve been busy studying and working so that’s the reason why I haven’t posted all week. I will start posting 3 times per week from now going forward . I created a blog schedule so you can check it out to see the specific days I’ll be blogging. I just want to take the timeout to wish my blogger friends a Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you guys enjoy this blessed day with your families and friends. I’m celebrating with my immediate family and my spouse.

What am I thankful for?

  • I’m thankful for my health. Lately, atleast two people in my family were diagnosed with cancer and it made me appreciate the fact that I don’t suffer from any chronic  illnesses. That being said, I’ll be making a few changes to my diet. I eat healthy most of the times but a little adjustment  is needed.
  • I’m thankful for my precious gift from God, my son Jordan. He is my pride and joy.
  • I love my family unconditionally and I’m thankful for them everyday. I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without my parents and siblings. They are my rock.
  • I’m thankful for my spouse. I love and appreciate him endlessly.
  • My best friend. I’m  fortunate to have such an amazing selfless friend in my life.
  • I’m thankful for having a place to call home.

What are you thankful for ?

Who are you celebrating the holidays with?

 

May you all have a peaceful and safe day.

TRIPLE WHIPPED PROFESSIONAL CLEANSING CREAM.

 

I purchased this facial cleanser at Burlington Coat Factory. What drew me to it was it’s refreshing scent and the fact that there were so much product in the container. On the container it states that it removes skin impurities and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Stop Comparing Yourself: Why You Should Stop Comparing Yourself To Others.

Do you find that you always compare yourself to others?

Majority of the times the people who we compare ourselves to are viewed as if they live the most perfect life. When you really think about it, nobody’s life is perfect, everyone is fighting their own battles but each person deals with their situation differently. Some people choose to show and speak of only the good things that are happening in their lives, while others put it all on the table. Not because it is not publicized doesn’t mean it is not happening. As a result of this, people looking in from the outside will automatically think ,wow, I wish my life was as perfect as the next individual.

Using myself as an example, a few of my friends thinks my life is perfect, as if I was born with a gold spoon in my mouth. They assume that good things are always happening to me, but that’s not the case. Never has been, never will be because this is life. Life is unfair, life is tough, and we all just have different ways of coping. I am a very private person in comparison to most of my acquaintances and I choose to display a small fraction of my life. I share my fears and my lowest moments with my best friend and my immediate family and that’s about it. I don’t let people in unless I really feel the need to share what I’m going through. When you compare yourself with others you’re creating space for negativity. It is frustrating, makes you live a very miserable and bitter life and can lead to depression.
