Golden Year❤

Happy Tuesday Chicsters! 6 days into the New Year and I'm living my life like its golden!!:) Real deal, I have been swamped with worked and other shenanigans but life has been too good to me and I'm so blessed to see another year.  2015 was the setup and now 2016 is the time to make it happen.  Last year, I focused on setting the stepping stones to get me where I am destined to go but this year its time to utilize those platforms to take it to the next level!!!  Instead of making resolutions for 2016, I'm making declarations of the things that can, will and shall happen.  My thought to myself each morning of this year so far has been "Shoy, what are you waiting for? No seriously what are you actually waiting for?" Nowadays it seems like we like to wait for things to happen. We see people getting the things that we have been hoping for and ask "When will it be my turn?" Queens, your turn will never happen if you keep wondering when it will instead, go out and actually make it happen.  It's time we stopped worrying about what other people have and are getting and start hustling it out to make that #goals our reality!! I don't know about you guys but I'm pumped for this year!! I declare 2016 to be my golden year where I will shine brighter than I have ever shone before and will finally start living my dream.  Not only do I declare it in writing, but every morning I wake up I will remind myself of what I am working towards.  This year we can't afford to start strong, dwindle in the middle and then try to get back on track when the years almost over, no no, we must remain firm in our declarations in order to watch them manifest. I declare 2016 to be our greatest year yet, who's with me!!!❤
Parting Words: New Year, New Me...nawww more like New Year, time to switch up my grind and make my dream a reality me!!:)
Until next time, peace..love...and happiness to you all!!:)

Magic❤

We creating magic y'all, black girl magic!! Beyond obsessed with my outfit and these photos!!! Confession, KG and I have been trying to shoot this look for awhile now but every time we planned to shoot, something would come up.  I'm super glad that things came up because we would have never ended up in Decatur, in the middle of the night, strolling, laughing and spontaneously deciding to take photos.  We were a little skeptical at first (we don't normally shoot at night) but decided to step outside of our comfort zones and went for it!! Sometimes the best moments and photos are the ones that you just take a chance on.  For this look, I had Cali on my mind and wanted to give off major DTLA vibes.  From my Fro out to the fringe details on my poncho, to my vibrant scarf and cobalt blue bag, this look is perfect for a cool night exploring the streets of a new town!!:)

In other news, as everyone is stressing over Christmas gifts, I'm over here reflecting on my year and how I will top all that I have accomplished this year.  Instead of making resolutions and frivolous goals, I am making declarations of what I'm going to do and what will happen!! This year has taught me a lot about myself and has challenged me in numerous ways, but with every moment, challenge and stride I have come one step closer to living the life that I love.  I'm a firm believer that in order to grow and move forward we must celebrate our accomplishments and embrace our areas of opportunity.  In the posts to come, I will share some highlights of 2015 and  some things that I'm working on for 2016.   Parting Words: Tis the season to be stressing and going broke buying gifts, but let's not forget that at the end of the day most people will not remember what gift you got them but what memories and impression you left upon them❤ #ThoughtsofShoy
Until next time, peace..love...and happiness to you all!!:)

Orange Coat + Zebra Skirt❤

Good day Queens, hope everyone is having a fabulous day.  I'm on my way to my morning meeting and reminiscing about conversations that I have had these past few days with a few friends of mine.  In these conversations, we normally talk about what our life goals are and what's holding us back.  One conversation that stuck in my head was a conversation that pertained to wanting to do and pursue everything that we are interested in but feeling that we should stick to one path.  What I mean by that is, my friends and I have a lot of things that we are interested in.  I, for one, want to be an entrepreneur/stylist/philanthropist/business owner/humanitarian/ have my own clothing line.  There is so many avenues that I will pursue and when I tell people that they are like "oh so your not sure what you want to be."  Why does wanting to do everything and not limiting myself to only one career path mean that I am unsure of where I want to go.  The thing is my mind has no limits, I refuse to be bound to a single title.  I aim to wear many hats because that is my mission in life to be and do everything and inspire others to do the same.  I guess what I'm trying to say is that we should never set limitations on ourselves.  People may look at you crazy or laugh at you but at the end of the day, you can be all and whatever you want to be:) Parting Words: A mind limited, lacks the desire to grow and change.  If you want to pursue numerous things, go for it!! At the end of the day, you have nothing to lose but all the experiences to gain.  So go out there and do the things you love and that interest you and have no limits!!
Until next time, peace..love...and happiness to you all!!:)

Sunny Vibes❤

Good day Queens!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far.  I have been off work the last couple of days and boy has it been amazing!!! I got so much work done, and finally got my thoughts, plans and life a bit more organized.  The holidays are rapidly approaching and I think I'm feeling a little homesick.  Normally, I have a love/dislike relationship with the holidays because I feel like I rarely get to see my family.  Between Black Friday, Christmas and working in retail during these times, my family time is non-existent.  With this being my first real holidays away from home, I'm sad that I won't be able to go home but it just makes me work even harder to stay on my grind to living a life that I love.  I work hard for a cause, which is to live my dream and to be able to do and go anywhere I please.  So since I am feeling a bit nostalgic, I decided to style an ensemble that reminded me of breezy days in my Sunshine State with my family.  From the fabulous hues bouncing off my skirt to the hint of sparkle from my Dolman sweater,  topped off with my tried and true blue striped blazer, this look evokes major Florida vibes.  I would totally wear this for a day out with friends and for a day of quick shopping at Lenox, lol!:)
Until next time, peace..love...and happiness to you all!!:)
