Hey Sweetie Pies! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are having an even more awesome Monday!
As I am typing this I am thinking about the fact that I have had roughly 4 hours of sleep. If there's one thing that I have learned in the more recent months is that I have to love the grind. It guarantees me that I will be able to push forward and persevere, even when I don't necessarily want to. I have been having a jam packed schedule  lately (which honestly prefer because I get bored easily) and sometimes it's hard to balance it all. I will be posting a video hopefully later this week where I will share some of the many things that I do btw... But I said all that to say this, most people cringe when it comes to Mondays, they aren't motivated. Most people don't look forward to Mondays or the week at all for that matter. For people who feel this way, it is usually because they feel like their life has no direction or purpose. They don't do the things that they love. I for one, cannot operate like that. I have to immerse myself into things that I love and are passionate about. Otherwise I am just a very very unhappy person. I encourage you all to figure out what it is that pushes you, intrigues you, excites you and pursue that. The way I see it, life is hard and short as it is, you might as well enjoy it!

What do you guys think of this look? I wore this look the other week for work. I loved it! You guys know I love me a denim shirt! I loved the pearls and the crystals together. My pearl necklace and crystal bracelet are both from Chloe+Isabel. I wanted to add a little more flair to my shirt so I added these stud earrings from +CharmingCharleHQ to my collar. I really liked the outcome! I will definitely be trying this other blouses, ones that have collars in particular. I opted for these new strappy heels from A'Gaci to add a hint of sexy. (I probably still look like a 7th grader with my little fro though, HAHA!)

I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your week? What big things that you have to tackle this week? A test? A paper? A new assignment for work? A personal project? I feel like I should always be working towards something. Let me know what's going on in your world!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

"Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us." ~ Wilma Rudolph

**I received samples courtesy of Derive Colognes to review. Even though these samples were given for my boyfriend David and I to review, all opinions are our own.**
As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Summer '18 Trend Watch : Straw Handbags

"Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage." ~ Maya Angelou

One trend that I have been obsessing over lately is the straw bag. You have probably seen this trend on your IG feed or through Pinterest. At first sight, I didn't think I would like this trend. The idea of straw itself made me itch lolz. But this once frumpy and overlooked handbag has been upgraded and I don't hate it! Whether you are in need of a crossbody or an evening bag, there are stylish straw options. Check out my top suggestions below!



I did a bit of searching and these are the ones that stood out to me the most. I l…
