I hope you all had a great Dr. Martin Luther King weekend. I feel like I haven’t talked to you guys much since the New Year. I planned on hitting the ground running for 2018 but that didn’t happen. I don’t know what happened but I’ve been in a deep funk since Christmas. I haven’t been wanting to get dressed or leave the house. I did go to the gym only because I felt it was acceptable to look like I just rolled out of the bed. I’ve managed to look presentable about 3 times since Christmas. I haven’t taken pictures of me or the girls since before Christmas. This was a feeling that I wasn’t used to. I’m usually always ON. I’m thinking that I was just burned out. This phase has encouraged me to change some of my plans for 2018.
Peyton always asks what is my favorite color. It’s gray. She doesn’t really consider gray a color so she keeps asking. I don’t know why but my eyes always go to gray. It’s that perfect neutral. A close second is black. Totally embracing my two favorite colors in this last minute outfit I put together. Of course, it includes my new Gucci belt.
Happy Friday! Halloween is finally out the way and it’s full speed ahead to Christmas. I don’t know if it’s the blogs and Instagram, but I’m already in the Holiday spirit. I’ve scoped out holiday outfits and have been purchasing items for my holiday decor. I’ll definitely be bringing out these fun fringe jeans that I bought late summer on super sale and hoarded til this fall.
Now that I’ve reached the end of my 30s, I’ve been looking back at the lessons that I learned. I learned that 30s are way better than 20s. When I was younger, I felt like I couldn’t “shine bright like a diamond” because there would be people saying… Who do you think you are? You think you’re better than everybody? So I would suppress living up to my full potential because I didn’t want those people to talk negatively about me. As I got older, I I didn’t feel the need to impress anyone or look for validation. I just do me and here I am. This tee from Pintsize Faith sums up everything I just said. John 4:44.
This weekend I will be celebrating another year of life. Originally I wanted to stay low-key and attend music festival to see my 1st husband Nas. But my real husband decided to plan something extra. Since I’m getting old and can’t hang like I used to, I tried to talk him out of it. Now I’m kind of excited to party all weekend. Now I just need for the temps to drop so I can go full blown fall fashion. I’m crushing on this velvet boho dress from Bohemia.
