He wants it all…

Often times we tend to beat ourselves up over every little thing that we want to go perfect but never does. Something that I had to learn is that not everything will go perfect like we want it to. That’s the beauty of it all, I would be lying to you if I didn’t say that I am still learning today.

Allowing God to fully take over your life and give it all to him is just the best and easiest way to go. We are able to live our lives stress-free. What I mean by that is, when we live our life stressing ourselves out about the little things that we have no control over, will drain us. We can’t take it because we weren’t made for that.

For me, allowing myself to give everything to God has been hard. I am the kind of person that likes to be in control of everything. That’s why I am so drained and stressed out now because I am not allowing myself to fully hand over everything to God. All of this is a learning process, something that isn’t easy to do, but as I go about my days I am slowly learning that it is okay to allow God to take over my life and to not be so stressed about my future. But it truly takes time. When I need guidance, I turn to the bible. Down below are some scriptures that you can read that can help with feeling stressed.

Scriptures to read:

John 14:27

Luke 21:34

1 Corinthians 16:13

Be blessed and stay blessed.

Who wore it better?

The ultimate fashion face-off!

Beyonce vs model Candice Swanepoel

I want to start off by saying both women look beautiful in the dress, I am not trying the bash or bring down anyone! I am all about women empowerment, and both of the ladies look fab. Everyone has their own style, so let’s see who wore the dress better!

Although the dress isn’t exactly the same they are pretty similar. By looking at both of the women, I would say Beyonce won this one! Beyonce won because of the way she is wearing the dress. It is a high neck dress, very form fitting, which accentuates her curves more. Also, her hair and make-up just brings the whole look together. I love it! On top of her serving looks!

FIGHT TO BE FIT

Being fit and healthy is something that I live by. Growing up, it was normal for young girls to want to be skinny. That was a thing in middle school, and the first few years of high school. Then, for me, I realized that it’s less about wanting to be skinny and more about wanting to be fit. After sophomore year, I stopped cheerleading and running track. After I stopped playing sports I started to notice a change in my body, although it wasn’t a big change I still noticed it.

So, I started to think to myself what could I do stay fit and healthy at the same time. Which made me decide to start working out. I’ve been on this fitness journey for about 4 years now I would say, and I don’t plan on quitting. Now, of course I go through struggles sometimes when I slip up and stop working out and eating right for a few weeks. But then I get myself back focused on what I need to start back doing.

Often times we mistaken eating right for eating all vegetables and fruit, which isn’t the route I go. To make things not so hard for me, I go about my diet in a way where it doesn’t really stress me out. Meaning, if I’m craving some sweets one day I treat myself and get something sweet. But then I also go twice as hard in the gym. It’s all about having a balance in your fitness and health journey.

Being fit to me is more than just trying to lose weight and be skinny, it’s more about toning the body and keeping it toned. So, let’s fight to be fit!

A SPRING FIT

Spring is finally here! But is it really here? I say that because I’m located in Michigan. Yes, I’m a Michigander. If you know Michigan, you know that we are known for having crappy weather. The cool thing about Michigan is when the seasons change there is always an in between gap. Meaning, yes, it’s suppose to be spring but it technically doesn’t even feel like spring. I call this time, off the shoulder oversized sweaters and cropped jeans season. I would say that’s literally one of my go to outfits I go to. This is the time when we are able to get a little edgy with our fits but also stay a little warm. Here’s an ootd to start off your Friday morning!

I’m not going to lie this was probably my favorite shoot, not because of my outfit but because of the pose I’m doing. It screams, “I’m an Instagram model.”

A Proverbial Girl

Hey guys! I know it’s been a while! I will say, it does feel good to finally be back and writing. I want to talk about, how to try to be a Proverbial girl. The reason why I want to talk about this is because I was inspired by my devotional that I was reading, it talked about The Proverbial girl. First, I want to ask you all. What is a proverbial woman? In my own definition, a proverbial girl is a woman that demonstrates wisdom, she has her life somewhat pulled together, and just all around has such a positive loving attitude. She not only has a strong relationship with God, but she also demonstrates it in her everyday life. In the devotional I was reading, it talked about what makes a proverbial girl so valuable. It made me stop and think why is a proverbial girl so valuable? A Proverbial girl is so valuable because of her heart, her character, and how she carries herself as a Christian woman. It doesn’t matter what she looks like on the outside, it’s about her spirit, and how she treats others around her. The big question is what are you doing to be more like a Proverbial girl? Do you feel like you can call yourself that? After reading this ladies, I want you to take the time and pray to God asking him how he can help you be more like a Proverbial woman, and also carry yourself like one. It’s one thing to be a Godly woman, but it’s another to show it in your everyday life.

Proverbs 31:10-31

Let me be your personal stylist!

How do you help a stubborn boy change his style 101? Guys, it’s not that easy, AT ALL. Let me tell you. I’ve never ran across someone that is more stubborn than my brother. But I love him. He actually texted me asking to help him change his style. Not going to lie, I was a bit shocked because he usually doesn’t ask for help when it comes to his style. He likes to pick out his own outfits, which is fine because he is grown. But at the same time his outfits aren’t all that nice. Let me just get to the point. What I did was, I made him go to some of his favorite stores and pick out some stuff he thought was nice. But I told him before he went to the mall, he had to look for things that doesn’t match his style right now. And that’s what he did. The key thing that I wanted him to focus on was to create a budget for each store he went in. What we don’t want him to do is spend all of the money he has.

So creating a budget could do a lot for you. You see, if you go into your favorite stores with a budget you know that each item you pick up you will look at the price to make sure it’s in the budget. And that’s what Josh did, when he went shopping. I don’t want to go on a whole tangent about it. So, long story short, Josh went to some of his favorite stores and got a few things to start off his new style. And overall, I would have to say he picked up some nice fits.

Now, the main reason why I thought I should write about this is because when we come to that stage where we want to change our style up, it’s like we are becoming a new person. I can admit, I’ve changed my style multiple times throughout the years and I just feel like a new person each time I change it up. When we change our style it’s the best feeling, like stated before you feel like a new person.

I’m ballin on a budget I don’t know about you…

What I love so much about fashion is it defines who you are. There are some days when we want to dress girly and there are others, where we just want to dress like a tomboy. And that is okay, because it honestly depends on your mood. I want to talk to you all about how you can ball on a budget. When thrift shopping you want to get you something that’s different, don’t look for the basic Hollister jeans, or the Abercrombie brand itself. Go around and look for things that are different, like pull overs and sweatshirts that has unique wording on it, or a quote. You can even find cute windbreakers, you can style it to your choice. The cool thing about thrifting is when you find something you like and it’s a good brand, ISSA WIN! Why? Because now you can put an outfit together and technically you are balling on a budget. I want you tell you guys a quick little story. I love my friends, they just know me so well. So, one of them hit me up telling me that she didn’t want this sweatshirt she got from a thrift store. She offered it to me, and of course I took it. People tend to get caught up in society, trying to fit in with what’s trending. They will spend their whole paycheck just to “get what’s new.” I want to tell you guys, it’s okay to ball on a budget. At the end of the day you are slaying, and that’s all that matters. Let’s ball on a budget together, I’m with it.

Do you lack confidence?

What does it mean to you to have confidence? To me, confidence is when one loves themselves and aren’t afraid to be themselves. There’s a big difference between having confidence in yourself and being conceited. People that lack confidence tend to think that you are being conceited if you love yourself. Never let them get to you because they are going through their own issues. Confidence comes first, if you lack confidence then there is no way you are able to be yourself and slay your own style. Growing up I can say that I’ve went through my struggles of not having confidence. It all stopped when I was a junior in high school. I want to give you all different ways that can help you gain confidence in yourself that helped me. The key thing that you want to remember is God created us, and he doesn’t make mistakes. So, by you not loving yourself you’re saying God messed up. Praying to the one and only every day, and asking him for guidance will continue to help you gain some self-love. Another thing you want to do is, look at yourself in the mirror and point out all the beautiful flaws you have. I say that because you have to start off by loving your flaws. If we love our flaws we are 1 step closer to loving ourself. The scripture says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14.
