"Good things may come to those who wait...

... but only the things left behind by those who hustle."

The past few days have been an emotional rollercoaster, but I've tightened up my safety belt, and holding on!  I've been really pensive about everything going on in my life right now, from relationships, to family life, to my career... It's not always about what you want to do, but what you need to do, to get where you want to be! (Preach sister, preach!) lol

To contrast my heavy heart and emotions, here are some fun pics that were shot the other day.  I had a lot of fun shooting this look, my bff Sasha and I were cracking up the whole time!  I find these pics pretty fun, I hope you do too :)

On a lighter note, I found out that one of my photos has been selected to be featured in Essence Magazine's "Street Style" page!  It's a two-page spread featuring women from all over the country, showcasing their style!  I'm a big fan of Essence Magazine, it has been a staple in my household for as long as I can remember!  The feature won't be out until the new year, so I'll let you know when it's issued, so you all can look out for it!

More fun news, I found myself on The Moptop Maven's blog!  I am a reader of her blog, and find her content really informative and refreshing!  But I actually wasn't the one who discovered it.  My mom's soror did.  Then some friends shortly following!  I thought it was pretty cool, you can check out the post here.

Wearing: ASOS Blue denim shirt, vintage leopard scarf, Elephant Bone/Wood earrings, Circa Joan & David Hunter Green heeled boots

For a little bit of hair talk, I've been wearing my twist out like it's my job.  It's big and curly, and I love it!  All I'm doing when it's loosing it's "umph" is re-twisting it every other night and adding a little shea butter while twisting.  I also am going to be posting a new youtube video soon!  I've been getting a lot of emails and questions regarding how to take care of your hair after you do the big chop!  I'll let you know when it's posted!

I also joined lookbook, so whomever is on it, send me your links!  Here is mine: lookbook

Whenever I'm feeling down, or having a tough week, I try to remember this: "Do something positive and creative every single day. It can be a small thing, from writing a few lyrics to writing a thank you card to a friend. Bring positivity to people, and that is what you will receive. Create and you will inspire! A little goes a long way, do this everyday and you’ll notice a change of energy and light in your life."

Have a great week,

  22. Amen sister! I'm literally in the same rockin' boat. :D I know what you mean about be so pensive...I do it so much at times, thinking about my future and my possible careers, everything--that my boyfriend wonders what they heck I'm staring at in the car ride home. I can't help it! And it's definitely some heavy stuff. But congratulations on all of your amazing features! By taking a gander at your amazing blog, I can tell that you most definitely deserved them both! See, all that pensive thought, no matter how serious or heavy, is all worth it. Sometimes it's just a mere matter of necessary day-dreaming. :D Hope you feel better soon!
