Friday Ramblings: Praise

Happy Friday!

I welcome the weekend with open arms. 
It seems as if the end of summer has been winding down quickly.
 Each week goes by faster and fall is approaching much sooner than anticipated. 
Yet I welcome fall as it comes with chilly nights, warm cuddly sweaters, and hot coffee drinks. Pumpkin patches, Halloween fun, Thanksgiving dinner, and football fun with the family. I am thankful for each season that we are allowed the beauty to capture here in Minnesota. And although winter lasts a lot  longer than many of us hope up here, every spring and summer we immediately forget the cold it gave us.
Taking in the 'little' moments are of the greatest importance in our lives. 
The ability to see the greatness and goodness of our Lord and Savior. 

- Numbers 14:21

With all the tragedy that is going on in today's world, I am thankful for a savior that has granted us all grace and mercy if we are so willing to accept it and believe it. To allow me the ability to live in freedom instead of depression and fear. This weekend and forever, think on the good things that we are granted the opportunity to embrace and dwell on that the Father has given us. 

Forever thankful.

Have a great weekend!

Real quick I am going to share my new hair cut with you, the long bob! I've seen this trend growing and have been going back and forth on whether I wanted to do it. Luckily I have a hairstylist for a sister and can run my ideas by her! LOL

Diaspora Fashion Show

Happy Hump Day! 

With Wednesday upon us, I thought I would share some photos I snapped while at the Diaspora Fashion Show this past weekend. There were many amazing African inspired designs as well as a preview of Target's new line, Ambar. These were my favorite shots from the night.

The show was great, and I loved all the mixed bright and colorful prints. I told you guys how I am such a print girl, this show was made for me! ;)

 If you are interested in learnings about the designers, check out more at the Retention Strategy.

Have a great day!

Loving Right Now.

Happy Tuesday!

How was your weekend? I got to celebrate a baby shower, go to a fashion show, and spend time with family. Sometimes I yearn for long weekends with absolutely nothing to do. Do you share my sentiments?
You know the days where you can sleep in and not feel bad about it. I think I will get a weekend like that coming up. I can't wait.

The other day I was doing some window shopping. Window shopping is the best for me right now. Because it keeps me in the know of what I want and helps me to stay focused when I do go shopping to know what to look for. It's kind of a double edged sword though because I often end up wanting everything and then calling these items "needs." Ha! How many of you can relate?

Anywho, I've compiled a few items that I need want and am just loving right now.

1. grace. yes. wild.
2. sunglasses
3. snakeskin
4. hat
5. leather
6. fringe

What are you eyeing right now?

Have a beautiful day!

Friday's Ramblings: #BeTrueBeYou

Happy Friday!

Thank you for your overwhelming response to my post, here, about me finding my true self, and just trying to be me. I find it sometimes difficult to stay true to yourself the way the world is now. So often our time is filled with looking at others through social media, television, and so on. We don't realize how often we are constantly comparing ourselves. Even in the smallest ways. The way we mother, the way we speak, the way we act and carry relationships with others all plays back to what we're fed. 

Man, We see what others are doing and instead of feeling confident in what we have to offer this world, we relish on that person, their abilities and start to take a disinterest in what we were purposed for. We find faults in our own work, we doubt ourselves, our abilities, until we are in a mode of stuck.

Put two people in a room and tell them to think about the same topic or jot down the first thing that comes to mind when you spit out a word and guarantee their ideas and thoughts will be different. They may even come up with similar concepts, but different words to say them and that is such a precious treasure that we must capture. We are not supposed to be just like our neighbor, or even like our parents or siblings.

I remember finding myself dwelling on how my raspy singing voice would never be like Beyonce's and my shape would probably never imitate her's either. I bottled up my voice, stuck it in a box and didn't look it for quite a few years. I always dabbled in graphic art and I loved it. When I didn't go to school for it or continue working with it, I felt like I was an imposter if I tried to do any art because I had seen other's work and our works were not the same. I looked at other's interpretation of art and figured because I wasn't practicing mine, that my talent was gone. I wasn't singing so the vocals were lost. 

But, Christ, man. 
He's amazing. He is truly the reason I am so open and willing to share my heart with yal. Through Him I have found my true identity and I am no longer afraid to just be me. So in keeping constant from my message this week, I was working on this print and I wanted to share it with you. It's more my style and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. In fact, I don't really care if you don't because I love it and its so me, that I may just print a few off and hand them out to people just to see a smile on their face from the message. :) I am going to be working on building up a portfolio and hope to start a small shop with these and possibly some stationary, because I just love this stuff man. You are the first ones I am sharing this with so I hope you understand where I am coming from and join in the movement of #betruebeyou

Hope you have a great weekend!
