Flowers

The sweetest kid on earth gave me these flowers for my birthday.
He was so cute when he handed them to me.
Made my day!!!

Recently Acquired and Still Drooling Over

I've mentioned in a previous post my serendipitous discovery of Baublebar.
I am absolutely smitten with this site, there are so many awesome pieces of jewelry at relatively reasonable prices.Throw in the free shipping and it's the perfect shopping haven

A friend gave me some money for my birthday and I was wondering what to purchase. I was browsing the site and came across some really pretty earrings.Of course I scooped them up immediately. They arrived in less than a week and I have no regrets. They are so sophisticated.

I still have my eyes on a few more earrings. Lately, I've been loving fancy earrings. Normally I go for plain silver studs or "diamonds" but with so many options out there, I'm branching out and becoming adventurous.

Check out my recent purchase and the ones I'm drooling over.
I got these Crimson Cabochon Studs
Drooling over these...Aqua Boho Drops
these...Blue Rose Studs
and these...Gold Button Studs

Celebrating my Birthday

Hi folks, been a long time. Just stopping by for a quick minute to say hi and to let y'll know that:
Today I celebrate my 29th year on earth. I feel so blessed and privileged to be here to experience the blessings of God. 
Here is just a little re-cap of the celebrations which began on Friday. I didn't do too much. 

Friday my co-workers and I went out for dinner and drinks. It was so much fun. Good Sangria makes for a good evening. We laughed so much and I had a blast. 

Saturday night my mom (who had her b-day on Friday) and I went to Southern Hospitality (Justin Timberlake's place) with a few friends for dinner. The food was really good, best BBQ ribs and collard greens I've ever had. It was the perfect way to celebrate. 

Some of my girls from work surprised me with gifts from Sabon. I love everything from that store. I also got a gift from the birthday fairy from my wish-list. I got that awesome envelope clutch from Asos. 

Today, mom made me breakfast in bed. It was such a lovely surprise.She also gave me the sweetest card. I love my mommy. 

Here are a few pictures of both Friday and Saturday's celebration.

Happy Memories Thnx to Instagram

This week has been tough.
I've been praying for something really big and so far it looks daunting.

I'm trying not to worry and just leave it all in God's hands. At this point that is all that I can do. If this is meant for me then it will be and no obstacle can stand in the way.

To cheer myself up, I pulled up some pictures that evoke happy memories.
They made me smile even though I was feeling a little down.
It's good to find things that make you happy and focus on those rather than the negative.
Thought I'd share.

Ciao!
P.s I adore Instagram!

What's in Your Picture Frame?



I was listening to Joel Osteen tonight and he was preaching a message that really resonated with me.

The topic was how do you see yourself? What is in your mental picture frame? 

What do you believe about your life and your circumstances? If you see good and positive things, then those are the things that will manifest in your life. You have to picture it in your mind and speak the things that you want.Too many times we talk about all the things we don't want and wonder why our life seems to be going nowhere fast.

If your life is  not going the way you want then change the picture in your frame.

I know it sounds crazy but the power of positive thinking has been proven time and time again. All great victories begin with a vision or a dream. Start thinking about all the success you will have and how much your life is going to change for the best.

Of course challenges will be present but you should never let your circumstances of your moment limit your destiny.

God can make every impossible situation, possible. He is so awesome to do things supernaturally that can never be explained to the logical mind. All you have to do is step out in faith and believe.

If there is something you want, I challenge you to step out there and go get it. See yourself accomplishing what you want and claim what you know is yours.

Find things to inspire you and people who will support your dreams. Don't let the words of others and their doubts cause you to walk away from your dream.

I will be sharing my testimony with you all in a few weeks. I'm living out my impossible dream right now and I know there will be good news to share very soon. 
Ciao!
