SATURDAY NIGHT


Out for my friends birthday and of course I had the only mission trying to find something to wear. My room was a disaster zone trying every pant, top, and shoes. I wasn’t comfortable in anything, felt bloated from pasta I had eaten earlier for lunch. So of course in my mind I felt fat in EVERYTHING! I see this jacket hanging in my closet that I bought a week ago at H&M and thought “it looks long enough to be worn as a dress”. Put it on with a slip under and some biker boots and TADA I have the perfect outfit. I struggled so much to have a great, comfortable, simple, and sexy outfit. I contemplated wearing heels but I kept imagining me walking the streets in the city looking like I was on my way to surprise a boyfriend in his apt. lol. Don’t ask it’s just the way my mind works lol.

My sister did my makeup with her motives cosmetics sculpt palette. It is DEFINITELY a necessity for ever woman.

Sometimes it is the simplest item that makes the most impression.

The Road To 30 - March

image

This literally explains how I feel. There is a giant question mark on my life, what am I going to do? where am I going to go? what is my next move? what do I want? 

Some of my friends have begun or are starting to turn 30 and we are all like “WTF!”. Pressure, anxiety, expectation, truth, responsibility, stress and awareness all the things that currently run through my mind. It is a whirlwind of thoughts, feelings, and emotions. 

You look back 10years and you have all these expectations for yourself when you turn 30 then you’re here at that age and wonder “where did I go wrong?”. Not necessarily that something did go wrong but you imagined this plan for yourself and see how far you strayed off it. Which turn led me to where I am today? I do not regret anything in my past, as the quote I tattooed on my foot says “Every obstacle is a stepping stone”. Every stone I’ve stepped is one that adds to my character and builds me to be better than I was in that instant. Every year we grow/evolve and every year their is another task/obstacle we must overcome.

My last and most important of tasks is and will always be HAPPINESS.

Every question will soon find its answer.

 I am a work in progress but I promise myself I will continue to work until I progress.

Chanel is THE BOSS

Karl Lagerfeld’s A/W 2014 fashion show is pure genius.

This morning I woke up and I catch up on my Instagram timeline to see all the fashion bloggers post up the show. I just wanted to DIE on  how genius and creative the production/presentation of the show was. Let alone the collection was a cool, sporty, urban contemporary take on signature Chanel. I wish I could afford to purchase every article but a lady can dream.

.

I am not a huge fan of pink but I would totall wear this. This coat is Everything.

Now if you’re not a fan of this you’re crazy. Instead of a traditional runway it is a supermarket but not just any supermarket it is a CHANEL supermarket. Who wouldn’t want to shop here?

May I be blessed one day to attend a Chanel show before the day I die. Just to be in the presence of this creative genius and view the work would make me one happy woman.

The Road to 30 - February

In January we left off with my main goals/missions. Everything is a work in progress and will not change dramtically in a month but I’m moving forward with all I set out for myself. I listen to “Happy” - Pharell at least once a day I will not get tired of it lol. I should have done one of those vids!

On another note the job search process is a frustrating one. I apply, apply and apply some more stuck in limbo wondering when/if a call regarding my application will occur. I refuse to reach 30 and still be at my current job. 

I do a lot of job searching on Linkedin and although I do like their website I hate being teased by this notification (image below) that says my application is being viewed. If they are going to view it I would like to know the hiring managers thoughts on it! It may be too much to ask for but COME ON! Why am I not the right fit? Someone give me a chance!

My other issue is I fear I’ll be stuck in the industry I’m currently in [Cosmetics] or the field which is production. Kind of like being typecasted. I want to get away from both and start fresh. This may be a fear but I will not let it overcome me.

I leave you with my mantra…

I am a work in progress but I promise myself I will continue to work until I progress.

BLUE CAMO

Tired of wearing sweaters everyday due to this polar vortex and snow days. I needed to change it up into some light layering.

image

I started with a harem jumpsuit by Indah Clothing that I purchased at Revolve clothing.

image

Layered it with an Epaulette Utility Tunic from Two by Vince. I fell in love with this tunic when I saw it, loved the camo of course and the color. Necklace from Forever21 (old).

I added a boyfriend blazer I purchased at H&M a couple years ago, cuffed the sleeves to be 3/4. I think it mended everything together to give a casual look but still appropriate for the office.

On my feet I wore a pair of knee high black Steve Madden boots i got from my sister for my B-day this past November.
