LAVENDER LACE


This door's bright and lilacy color reminds me of lavender,the flower. My mother loves lavender so much such that almost every bottle of fabric softener she buys is lavender. Trust me I can smell the beautiful flower scent meters away and oh, did you notice that I'm growing to love lace? There's something feminine and collected about it. Did I also mention that lace reminds me of weddings? My friends should get married,fast. I want to be a bridesmaid already!










ARTSY

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the awesome art here. The wall behind me,me ,the head-wrap,the outfit,the shoes! Being a blogger continues to bring out an artsy side of me that I thought I had left in my grade three art classes. I wasn't the best drawer but do believe me when I say I appreciated coloring books no wonder this wall drew me to it. I found this dress to be the perfect thing to wear for a girls day out, a picnic, or if you're like me, for window shopping because it's easy to put on and off! Where would you wear this polka-dotted beauty?Let me know.

HOW TO ROCK A LONG SKIRT,TO WORK


Dressing up for a 9-5 job everyday can be challenging to the point that you'll be convinced you have nothing to wear,every morning. It's even more complicated for ladies like me, who can't rock a mini skirt and run out of the house. Because of this, we (me and Khadijah ) a personal style fashion blogger, came up with looks that we think are office appropriate. Khadi is passionate about modesty and elegance, two powerful qualities any lady can have. Since this is a blog feature, be sure to visit her blog dimplekhadi.blogspot.com  and her instagram @dimplekhadi for more modest awesomeness!














If it was easy,everyone would do it!


I love watching YouTube videos, from make-up tutorials that I don't really follow, natural hair styling videos, fitness, how to make a cat talk lol, TED talks,everything. While watching all these, I came across one video that gave me an idea for this post. It's been long since I wrote a letter but here is one that might boot you back to focus .^.
It's possible to be doubtful of your abilities such that you will sit back scared of being criticized by people, but you are the same person who will be the first one to applaud when someone else is doing exactly what you wanted to do but didn't do. It's also possible to start something but in the middle of working towards reaching your goal,  you start doubting yourself again until you talk yourself out of whatever it is that you were doing. When you catch yourself talking you out of something you were so enthusiastic about when you started, this might sound cliche' but, ask yourself why you started. The same reason you started should be an enough motive for you to continue on the journey. 

There are times when I second guess myself about blogging, these days I don't do that as much like  when I first started. I would look through my Instagram feed and see people with great personalities (through the photos) and I would think;  these people make better bloggers, the seem like fun. I would ask myself what they think about me yet they probably never criticized me the way I criticized myself. Or they actually did not.Worst mistake I ever made.

Everyone is different, everyone is talented differently and what makes you different, makes you beautiful. If you are finding your degree hard to obtain, your business complicated, your relationship complicated, your marriage on the rocks, whatever project you're on, taking a stroll on you..keep it at the back of your mind that you are doing your best. It is supposed to be hard because if it was easy,everyone would do it. Keep going,take this like a pep talk from me to you, you can do it!

Cheers
Grace


CAPE, FOR THE WIN

I know the Cape party started ages ago but I guess it's better to be late than not showing up. I have joined the cape wagon now and I think capes are one of those classic pieces that every lady should have in their wardrobe because they are here to stay.  I got this one from Shein.com and like other statement pieces that I've received from them, this cape was made with a quality material that not only looks good but feels good on my skin#doublegoals. I'm in love with this White-Shawl-Collar-Cape-Blazer ,so brace yourselves for more posts featuring this same item! What is that one piece in your closet that you wear every chance you get just because you love it? Comment below and while you're on it,heard over to Shein.com for gorgeous pieces like this cape!
