It’s been quite awhile since I did a post like this, and I want to do them more frequently to show women that we are no different from the women in the magazines! Just open your magazine, then your closet and get inspired!!!

Flipping through the October/November Issue of People Stylewatch, I came across an article “How To: A Pleated Midi” and I thought to myself that I have a pleated skirt! Step 1…✔ I also have a white tee, a turtleneck, a vest, a a denim shirt!

Let it be known, you don’t have to have the exact colors or clothing, the exact shoes, or anything exact for that matter, you just need inspiration.

Let’s start with the pleated skirt and white tee…

My pleated skirt is knee length, I added a denim jacket to my look for a more put together look, I am holding my shades instead of wearing them, obviously because it’s dark outside…BUT you see the inspiration!

Denim Jacket: Thrifted

Pleated Skirt: Thrifted

Handbag: Vegan Leather, Nordstrom Rack

Sneakers: Asics

Next we have the pleated skirt with denim shirt…

Denim Shirt: Guess

Handbag: Olivia + Joy (thrifted)

Shoes: BCBG (thrifted)

Lastly, we have the pleated skirt with turtleneck and vest…

Vest: Petite Sophisticate

Turtleneck: Brooks Brothers (thrifted)

Shoes: Thrifted

All the pieces I have on, I already had, I did not have to purchase for this post. Imagine what amazing looks you have hanging in your closet, but you say you have nothing to wear! Which look was your favorite? Let me know in the comments…thanks so much for stopping by 💋

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you may know that I am dealing with a fibroid situation. Instead of having surgery, which I don’t feel is the only option, I started seeking natural ways to heal my body on my own. Through my research Hempseed was mentioned as an overall health booster. Hempseed can be pretty expensive depending on where you purchase from so it took me some time to actually acquire some. In TJMaxx one day I stumbled across a package from the brand OMG Organic and it was on clearance for $7.00, the cheapest I had seen it. For the past 2 to 3 weeks I have been adding the hempseed to my bottle of purified water, and I drink that 5 days a week.

At the time I started, I had breakouts on my face, and I noticed it clearing up throughout the time frame of drinking the hempseed and water so I decided to do a bit of research on the benefits of hempseed, let’s discuss….

Hempseed are seeds from the hemp plant or Cannibas Sativa. No these seeds will not get you high, the seeds contain a small trace of THC (TetraHydroCannabinoids), approximately 0.3% to 1.5%.

GLA, a necessary building block for certain prostaglandins, is found in Hempseed. GLA rich foods have been noticed to help people with:

ADHD, heart disease, obesity, PMS, and skin allergies

Hempseed oil is known to relieve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Hempseed is high in fiber, it can relieve constipation and feeds the probiotics in your gut.

Hempseed oil can help to improve dry skin and inflammation caused by eczema.

Hempseed is another source high in omega 3-fats (healthy fats)

Lastly, hempseeds are known to improve high blood pressure and cardiovascular health.

With all of these great benefits, why not incorporate hempseed into your diet and lifestyle?

Hempseed…why you need them!

lifestyle, My Life, shopping, Uncategorized

I have worked in retail off and on for 13 years now, and I have seen it all. People who don’t work in retail will never understand the mindset of an individual who does. As someone in a non management position, you experience so much more when it comes to customers. There are about a handful of sweet and pleasant experiences, then there are the liars…manipulaters…indecisive…non parental but have kids…and the “I’m always right!” customers.

Today I just want to share with you all some things to make everyone’s shopping experience better, you as the customer and me as the employee.

1. Go shopping with a plan or idea of what it is you want and actually truly need. Why come in a store to fill up your entire cart, only to get 2 to 3 items and leave the rest for me to put back? Oh wait, I know, you’re giving me work to do so I won’t be bored! Try again…

2. Be a parent! Watch your child/children…it is NOT, I repeat NOT my job or any other employees job to watch your child/children for you while you shop. I don’t know how many times a child has come up to me lost, can’t find their parent, 1 year olds damn near out the front door…ALONE!

3. Do not ask me my opinion more than 2x about 1 item. I am the most honest person when it comes to buying, I will not have you wasting money then blame me and try to return something. So, if I say the outfit is fly, the handbag is perfect, etc, just go with it!

4. Do not complain to me or any other employees about pricing, policies or any other matter we have no control over. Especially if you are a frequent shopper and have prior knowledge of said issues, I DIDN’T DO IT!

Lastly,

5. At a very early age the majority of us learned to put things back where and how we found it. Let’s reminisce on those times and remember how much trouble we got into if we didn’t put stuff back where and how we found it. As a merchandiser, that annoys me on a whole other level!

I hope we all have a better understanding of each other now 😊 and hopefully during your next shopping trip you’ll take some of the mentioned into consideration. If you work in retail and have anymore tips on How To Shop, let me know!!!

How To Shop…

fashion, Uncategorized

Hello…Hello…Hello!!! A couple of weeks ago I did a Fall Fashion 2017 Look Book on my YouTube channel. I put 4 looks together, focusing on color…fabrication…and weather. Let’s face it, some days it will be unseasonably warm and the next ridiculously cold. So, I think that’s how we need to approach this season.

Every year you may see subtle changes with fashion from season to season but a few key things remain the same, one being color. For Fall you want to be inspired by nature, especially in the early parts of the season. Look at the leaves from the trees and start there. You have colors like burnt orange, dark red, brown…and the grass gets a little darker green.

Next is texture! Fabrication gets heavier, you have heavier denim, suede, corduroy, and layering is key!

When it comes to Fall Fashion, stick to these trends, they will never change! That way you won’t have to break the bank buying every year. Out of the 4 looks I posted 3 things are new, the green corduroy jacket, the black shoes with the studs and the coat I’m holding in the last look…and all 3 were thrifted! I spent less than 20 dollars for all three.

Before I go, I want to share key items you need in your wardrobe for Fall/Winter:

Cable Knit and Infinity scarves

A trench coat

A leather jacket

Knee boots (black & brown)

Booties

Faux leather pants

Corduroys

Tights

Ok, let’s just start there…I don’t want to overwhelm you. I hope that I have inspired you with my Fall fashion, and if you have anything to add please leave me a comment,  I would love to hear from you 💋

The most peaceful exercise: WALKING

Good Afternoon!  Today I want to share with you why I enjoy walking.  I am not talking about when I walk to the bus stop, or walk from the car to the house, but really walking.

There are a few workout routines I have designed for myself, but I find the most peace during my walks.  Where I live there is a path to the church, I wanted to see exactly where the church was one day so I walked towards the area and noticed my new meditation space.  It’s filled with trees, which makes it even more of an oasis.

I started out walking around 2x, most recently I added speed walking and running.  I now walk around once, then speed walk, then run twice.  In walking this path, all you hear and feel is nature, it’s a great way to meditate.

The troubles of the world literally seem miles away when this is your scenery.  The deer have come out and peeked a bit, I admit it startled me, I thought the rustling was a squirrel.  You never know what you may witness, but you’ll walk away more open to what nature has to offer!

Source energy of course has to beam it’s magnificence down on you…

So if I don’t feel it in me to do one of the routines I put together for a workout, I just lace up my sneakers, grab my water and go for a walk!

If you have trouble sleeping, go for a walk…feeling stressed, walk it out…need to close out the noise, go for a walk!  Your heart will thank you…your energy level will increase…and so much more!!!

I survived LENT!

Have you ever contemplated giving something up?  Smoking, Drinking, Sex, certain foods…well I believe a great way to start is participating in Lent.  That is exactly what I did, but first let me explain what Lent is.

Lent is a self discipline practice mostly observed by Catholics and Protestants.  It is 40 days of fasting, counting Monday to Saturday.  So for 6 weeks you say no to whatever you may be weak for.  Culturally it can differ time frame wise, it begins Ash Wednesday and ends either Easter Sunday, the Saturday before Easter, or like this year it ended the Friday before.  I do suggest you read http://www.catholiceducation.org/en/culture/catholic-contributions/history-of-lent.html for more detailed information as to why it’s 40 days, etc.

I participated and I am glad I did.  I have always, well most of the time, found comfort in eating cake…muffins…doughnuts…chocolate…and chips like Doritos, now it’s usually during PMS but sometimes not.  At the time I decided to give all of those things up for Lent, I felt like I was going overboard with it.  I am used to giving stuff up cold turkey, I did that for smoking and drinking but I just knew I’d have moments of weakness but I didn’t.  During those 40 days I did not once crave any of it and felt very proud to say no to it if it was offered or if that voice in my head told me to give in.  The experience leads me to believe that it’s all mental, the cravings…you just have to retrain your brain.

The week leading up to the last day was exciting for me because I was starting to feel like I wanted chocolate.  When Lent was over, the first thing I did was get a chunky chocolate chip muffin from Starbucks, yes it tasted the same but I felt bad eating it.  So, I think a change has occurred and I will no longer be weak to those things.

Do you participate in Lent?  What did you give up?
