My Second(hand) Wedding

Everything is better the second time around. Isn’t that what they say? Secondhand means a second chance to be amazing. And in my case, I am referring specifically to love, marriage, and fashion. When I met the love of my life three and a half years ago, I was already three and a half yearsContinue reading “My Second(hand) Wedding”

By Default or Design

Everything that comes to you in your life arrives in one of two ways, either through deliberate intention and purpose, or by a lack of independent choice. Either way gets you something in the end, but that does not necessarily mean that you get what you want. So, what do you want? It’s up toContinue reading “By Default or Design”

Mom’s the Word

Mother’s Day is just around the bend, and for me, this particular Mother’s Day is an extra special day because it is also the birthday of my first-born daughter. She is turning 24 this year, and in twenty-four years, I have embraced, absorbed, and enjoyed the honor of being mother to four amazing children IContinue reading “Mom’s the Word”

The Spring Edit

BUT…the promise of sunshine and warmer days are just aroundContinue reading “The Spring Edit”

Know Your Strengths

Do you know your own strengths? Yes, strengths. Plural. I am not talking about the amount of weight you can lift or the number of pounds you can move with your legs. I am talking about the inner strengths that make up the core of who you are. Strengths that you may not fully realizeContinue reading “Know Your Strengths”

Dressed to Kill

Ah, October. A time to plug in the pumpkin spice and revel in everything ghoulish, gruesome, and ghastly. For me, that means it is time once again to dust off my beloved copy of Edgar Allan Poe’s collected works of classic stories and pay homage to the master of macabre. Born in 1809 and walkingContinue reading “Dressed to Kill”

My First PoshFest

Active and avid in the resale world as a part-time seller on Poshmark since 2014, PoshFest was something I heard about, but didn’t take seriously . In years past, this annual 2-day conference was held on location in cities like Phoenix, Dallas, and San Francisco (to name a few), and to be honest, I didContinue reading “My First PoshFest”

Fall Forward

It’s officially Autumn. But, this year instead of falling back, I am making a conscious effort to fall forward. Forward thoughts. Forward action. Forward steps that pack enough momentum to propel me ahead. I was going to call this post Fall to Pieces because lately (aside from having weekly crying sessions) I have been carefullyContinue reading “Fall Forward”
