ood morning and happy Tuesday friends!! How are you?? I am well, thank you. I had a pretty exciting day yesterday, thus why I didn't blog. I was on TV yesterday morning showing my favorite Holiday Picks! I hope you can watch it!
I love you, thank you for being here! I hope you've had a great start to your week and if you have not, know that it can always turn around! You can think your way into a good situation!
Below is a little tutorial for you to make something out of those lipsticks you haven't used in ages! Creating adorable little gifts for Christmas or Hanukkah !
Pick a scarf you LOVE and make it the center of attention! Pair everything else in a neutral, almost monochromatic manner and let that puppy shine! It is a great way of adding warmth and color to your look!

**Remember you don't NEED to have what I do to look beautiful. You probably can do this look with things already from your wardrobe, these are just guidelines to help you find your OWN style that works for you and your budget.
FROM MY HEART:
Guys I will tell you something. Ups and downs are a part of life! They are a part of searching for your meaning in this jaded world. The more you're on the right track for your life and living it out with purpose, the more resistance there will be, but guess what, them more equipped YOU'LL be to fight back and kick it in the face! The victory is ALREADY yours, sis! It's already yours. However, It is inevitable for you to experience a lull in your life, a season of "winter" if you will. In that time it's easy to be distracted, depressed or discontent. It will be easier to look at others and think they have more going on than you. DON'T FOR ONE MINUTE THINK ANYONE ELSE HAS IT BETTER THAN YOU. It just looks that way. That's what the enemy wants us to feel, because when we do, we compare, isolate and retreat from having fellowship with people especially the ones that "seem" to have it better than us. No one has an entire "smooth" ride or a pain-free life. We all bear a cross whether we make it known or not. It is so easy to objectify someone and think that because they have something you might want, that their life is perfect. No one is perfect. Not ONE single person will be without trouble in this life. We have no idea what that person is dealing with internally or at home where the selfies don't make the cut on social media.
Know that you are important as you are. In whatever season you're in. There is no one else that you'd be better off being. You can love yourself and praise God for the talent and beauty in someone else and that will help with any feelings of jealousy that can eventually turn into envy.I stopped trying to live other people's lives and focused on mine and it set me FREE! I understood how hard it was to passionately move forward in my dreams and realized the people I idolized probably went through the same struggle. You have the power to change the world! It takes a little fight, but I know you've got it in you!
I love you, you are important, you are loved and you are cherished. Just as YOU are. Go kick some butt being YOU!
