"The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides." ~ Audrey Hepburn

Hey hey sweetie pies, with Mother's day 2 days away I wanted to dedicate today's post to my Mom. Here is my open letter to you...

Hi Ma Happy (Early) Mother's day! I want to thank you for all the things that you have taught me
1. For teaching me to put God first
2. For teaching me to not be afraid to speak up for myself because no one else will do it for me.
3. For teaching me to not judge a book by its cover
4. For teaching me to be a strong woman
5. For teaching me the importance of an education
6. For teaching me the value of hard work
7. For teaching me to love life 
8. For teaching me who I belong to
9. For teaching me to love myself
10. For teaching me take pride in what I do
11. For teaching me to respect my elders
12. For teaching me that my opinion holds value
13. For teaching me what unconditional love looks like
14. For teaching me that I should always trust my gut, my intuition
15. For teaching me that I can do whatever I set my mind to
16. For teaching me to fight for the life that I want
Ma, you are a true testimony of strength, love and light. You have always worked so hard to provide for us. Even though I could not ever pay you back, I hope that I have made you proud and that I continue to do so. I am so proud to inherit your sassy attitude and love of dance. God knew what he was doing with that one. It is so cool to think that you have so much love that you can love me and my 2 sisters all at the same time. You have shown us that there is nothing wrong with falling as long as you get back. Your stories of hardship and tough love has inspired us to give our best at all times. I always appreciate your transparency. Thank you for always being there when I call (or if you don't answer you always call back) when I have a question about literally anything. You always have supported me and always 100 with me. (Thanks for that) I am so lucky to have a mom like you. I thank God for you and I love you. :) 

Love,

Your Star⭐

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…

How to Transform your Simple Daytime Look

"I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same as the meaning of the fact that I am black; it means that I must undertake to love myself and respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect." ~ June Jordan

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
