New Year love


Happy new year! Although we are well into the new year I wanted to take the time to wish you all the best for the year of 2017. I have been away for a few weeks due to many reasons. The first was a terrible cough, which lead to bronchitis, which lead to I don't know what, which lead to me being sick for more than ten days! It was horrible and to top things off our summer/winter weather here in Houston did not help at all. After getting over the sickness I decided I needed to start this new year with more than just goals. I wanted to start the year with actions. 

It took a lot of cleaning, brainstorming, & trial & error, to get myself together & to bring some structure to my work life. You see last year, I was just going with the flow of things & unfortunately it caused me to fall face first a few times. Not just with work, but with my personal life as well. You see it is very easy to go with the flow of what everyone around you is or what they expect you to be. In the midst of doing so I lost myself, my character, & I found myself not enjoying the things that I loved to do. I became lazy & very unorganized to the point where it made me feel sad & ugly on the inside. But that has all changed! 

I started off by organizing a few things in my room that were a disaster for months, created a schedule (which I am still trying to figure out.), made a work station, actually started using the 50 cute planners I tend to buy every year, & most importantly, I learned that I was not one of those ugly things I was said to be or told myself I was. It has been a challenge but it has been the most rewarding, especially because I am so happy & have been filled with so much love from the people around me, that I now feel like I have enough to share with the entire world!

 I am excited to finally sit here & smile as I write this. Although this is a blogpost that has nothing to do with fashion or beauty I felt the need to share. I have many fun blog posts planned for the next few weeks & if you all ever feel the need to chat feel free to message me as I am not only on social media to help with fashion advice. Much love to all of your beautiful faces & welcome to all of my new lovelies! I can't wait to engage with many fun conversations! 

P.s. If you have not read the book Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst, I highly encourage you to read. It is life changing. I'm sure you girls will love it!
