Mood tonight. From a sobering but enriching day w/ friends to several fun moments w/ the BF, I have nothing but love, love, love in my heart. S/o to @itsbible for capturing such feelings in a clean and sophisticated tee. 💕 | 📸: @njb3photo
It's mad late but I couldn't let #InternationalWomensDay pass without sharing this *perfect* quote. I mean, THIS! Our definitions of strong may vary. To some women, strength= breaking corporate glass ceilings. To other women, strength = forsaking certain personal desires to raise a family. But one truth that's evident in these increasingly uncertain times is that that *incredible* things happen when strong women move past their differences to embrace and combine their various strengths for the greater good of humanity. And that gives me so much hope. Thankful to have spenty the entire day encouraged by women with strength of ALL kinds.
In honor of the @theacademy's red carpet (because, let's be honest, that's the only part of the #Oscars I actually watched), I gotta post one more pic of this formal, custom-made beauty from @iheartazazie. I mean, the pleats and flutter sleeves would make ANY girl feel like an award winner. 🏆🎗Side bar: Can we talk about all the #blackgirlmagic and #melaninpoppin on the red carpet tonight?! So much SLAY!
Impatiently waiting on spring like... // Cold-ish weather and rain won't stop this chick from wearing pretty spring dresses like this Rachel Pally beauty from my latest @DailyLook elite box (shoutout to DailyLook for continuing to send me beautiful, modest dresses I ADORE) // Who else is pretending like it's warm enough to wear spring dresses in the winter?! 🙋🏾 // P.s. you can shop this maxi and tote (both responsibly made) by going to 👉🏾http://liketk.it/2qvfh OR ♥️-ing this pic of you signed up for @liketoknow.it #liketkit
This quote strongly resonated with me today as I felt completely overwhelmed. I woke up to 40+ new work emails, tried to answer 20+ blog-related emails on the ride to work (and during lunch), and then spent the rest of the day in nearly back-to-back meetings while trying not to think of major changes underway in my personal life. By the end of the day my brain was like 😓😫😭💀// But this quote was a welcomed reminder that it's my attitude and *how* I approach my never-ending do list that keeps me feeling overwhelmed. I know I personally need to do a better job of acknowledging that I'm never going through a particular struggle alone. From my supportive boyfriend to thoughtful co-workers to my ever present Savior who guides me through all phases in life, I have ample support...but I often forget that when I'm stressed out. // I also need to do a better job of extending grace to myself. I don't NEED to accomplish everything in one day, especially if doing so means I get so stressed out I lash out at those who simply want to help. // If you're feeling like your load is WAY too much to bear, maybe it's time to consider how you can change the one thing you can control: your attitude.
