TGIF all!

Today is my 45th birthday and I am  blessed to  see another year of life.  As I get older the phrase “time is not on my side” has begun to take on a whole new meaning for me.  We  have this one life to live and we should enjoy it every second of it.  Instead of focusing on things I cannot change I’m going to make an effort to live in the present. I will continue to be grateful for the life that I have and not take my loved ones for granted.    I plan to make the most of my time and enjoy every second of it!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Hump Day all!

I had to share with you Lane Bryant’s upcoming collaboration with mega designer Prabal Gurung!  Prabal Gurung joins the list of high end designers such as Lela Rose, Christian Siriano and Sophie Theallet who have created exclusive collections for Lane Bryant customers.  These collaborations are monumental because they completely demolish the belief that high fashion isn’t for PS women.  I applaud Lane Bryant for pushing through the negativity surrounding PS fashion to provide us with these wonderful collaborations.

Below are a few of my personal favorites from the collection.  I’m completely obsessed with the striped wrap dress and navy blue trench coat.  The full collection will be available online and in select stores on February 27th.  I highly recommend you set your alarm clocks because these collections in the past have sold out in minutes!

Have a wonderful day!

TGIF all!

It would be an understatement when I say I cannot wait for Spring. I dread every moment of Winter and as we move closer to warmer temps I can’t help but fantasize about feminine spring dresses. Usually I tuck all my Spring/Summer dresses away until the season changes but this time I decided Winterize one of my favorites to wear it now.  I ordered this eShakti dress a few weeks ago and it was begging me to wear it now.   Once I layered my turtleneck and tights under the dress, it became the perfect outfit to wear in out in the cold.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Monday!

For some of us single women, Valentine’s Day can be tough because we have yet to meet that special person or have recently kicked someone to the curb! Around this time of year, it can be easy to slip into believing that that being single on Valentine’s Day is some tragedy.  Of course this isn’t true! Half the time it’s just a ruse to make single women stuff their faces with chocolate!  There is absolutely nothing wrong with us being single on Valentine’s Day. Love is a beautiful thing and should be celebrated.  Now don’t get me wrong, I haven’t always had this positive outlook on the holiday.   Back in college my single friends and I would dress in black and menace folks (yeah I was a hater).  In my 30’s I would cry because I felt like a failure because I didn’t have a husband and kids like my friends.  Instead of living my life back then, I wasted too much time and energy trying to find “Mr. Right”.   After years of working through being single, I’ve come to a place where Valentine’s Day no longer elicits a negative response from me.  I know that I am a special person and if/when the time comes, I will meet the right person. The same goes for you too. I totally understand that being single is hard.  There are times where I get lonely and question whether or not  love will find me.  While I allow myself to experience these emotions I don’t let them overwhelm me.   I know being single isn’t something that doesn’t define me.   You and I are much more than that.  While it’s easier said than done, you can find peace with being single on Valentine’s Day.  That peace can also help you feel more confident about who you are as a person.

So for Valentine’s Day this year believe that you are enough.  Be kind to yourself and your heart. Celebrate love in all it’s forms everyday, not just on February 14th.  And remember the greatest love is learning to love yourself!

Have a wonderful day!
