The Importance of Not Worrying

"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none." ~ William Shakespeare

Hey sweetie pies, happy Friday! I hope you all have had a great week and if not, I think I have just the message to cheer you up and motivate you! I for one am extremely guilty when it comes to stressing and worrying about things. Sometimes I over-analyze things and get myself ALL the way worked up. In these 24 almost 25 years of living, (My birthday is in August) I have learned that the things I usually stress over ALWAYS work themselves out. However even with doing my daily devotion, meditation and yoga, I can still have some screaming fits and want to smack a few people from time to time. (Don't judge, I am a working progress) 

With all jokes aside, there is so much going on in the world right now with senseless acts of violence to politics to global warfare. It can be quite stressful and scary. My objective isn't to discuss or question anyone's political views so please don't use my platform for that. My objective is to simply express that I know and understand because I have those overwhelming feelings as well. I have to remember that God doesn't want us to worry. We are His children so there is no need to fear or worry about what's to come. It is a beautfiul thing when we put our trust in the Lord and not allow things of this world to overwhelm us. Especially to the point where we start questioning ourselves or more importantly God. Now I am not here to push religion on anyone, just simply expressing my views. 

Life is short and we too often are so consumed with life that we let it swiftly pass us by. Life is meant to be enjoyed. It is meant to chase your dreams and goals. Work hard and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Life is meant is give to others as often as you can and live with a humble heart. Cherish the relationships that you have whether it be family, friends, colleagues, etc. Make sure to live a life that is meaningful to you. Discover your purpose and work towards that Every. Single. Day. I am a firm believer in that whatever God has for you, it is for you only. Nothing can change that. 

Like 99% of the time we spend worrying about things are usually not that important in the grand scheme of things. We allow a lot of temporary or worldly things stress us out. I am guilty of this too. However it is something that I am working really hard on. Whenever I notice that I am starting to stress about something, I ask myself "Is this really worth stressing over?". Most of the time it is not so I try to just slow down and take a deep breath and relax. 

Remember that life is something that is meant to be enjoyed and appreciated through our relationships, hard work and experiences. I know it can become a little overwhelming because of all that is going on. It can be really hard especially when it seems like something bad is always happening. If anything, let those things motivate you to do the things that your heart desires because one never knows when God is going to call us home. Live-Love-Life. 

Let's end this post on a positive note. Leave me a comment below sharing something that you are grateful for. I can't wait to read your responses!

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post as much as I did writing it. :) 

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.

To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
