It's Sunday.. Wait...it's Oscar Sunday! So I thought what better time to share a very rare sighting of me in a Gown. If you follow me here you know that I think this may be the only time I have ever worn a gown here on the blog... And I have to say I may be hooked.
So two fold.. I wanted to chat about this years Oscars and how I could not be more excited to see all the diversity of both nominees of color and women who are being recognized for the most amazing and important work.
So if you were with in IG aka Instagram yesterday you probably know that for the better part of the day I actually thought it was Friday. Evidence being my posted IG baring the hashtags #FBF and #TGIF. In full confidence that it was in fact the best day of the week.. I adore Friday.. I went on with my day.. until I headed over to my DM's aka Direct Messages only to read a message saying.. and I quote
"Our lives are not shaped by our conditions, but by our decisions." -Tony Robbins
This day was one of those many days in 2017 that have taught me or should I say reminded me of a valuable lesson. When met with a road block and only minutes to get it done.. shut up and make it happen!
NOTE: As I was about to publish this post I came to the realization that it is Valentines Day. I guess because I'm not in a relationship it sort of slipped through my consciousness because I am not presently dating someone or in a relationship.. But before you read the rest of the post..( written prior to today) I have to say that the Universe always has a way of making things work.. whether they make sense or not.. The idea of me being in "Warrior Mode" is absolutely the case.. in all aspects of my life including that thing called love... So before you read on.. Let's give a big fat cheers to both the universe and the subconscious for whom most of the time are right on track..
all know I love my lattes.. Hot, iced and pretty much in any form you
can think of.. They for me are such a vital treat to my days and if
you follow me on Instagram you know that coffee and I are like total besties. You also know as of lately I have tried to cut my coffee intake by half by having coffee every other day..
that's not why I am writing this post.. This post is about coffee,
it's relationship to our bodies and our daily intake of vitamins.
Allow for a little back story..
In the mornings as I sift through my Instagram
feed, I come across more than a few posts from people posting about
how they add vitamins to their coffee to make it more healthy..
The problem is.. coffee and vitamins just don't mix..
Mixing sporty with lux is such a huge trend right now... So when this ultimate mix of the two came into my possession in the form of this ultra lux velvet hoodie I was like "Hec Yes" This little number has been worn more than a few times in the last month.. and styled with everything from ripped skinnies, to over the knee boots.
I have also been in the habit if sleek ponytails between blowouts lately.
Is it ever appropriate to wear your inner wear as outerwear? This is may be the looming fashion question of the week... I've had this discussion with myself for a while..just as I have had this little beautiful bra for a while now.. and most of the time it stays beneath the surface.. but why hide the beauty of it..
Right now the sheer trend is making its way to the forefront.. on Spring runways we are seeing all kinds of what I like to call "free the nipple".
