Hey Hey Sista!
Every once in a while, I browse through my library of YouTube videos to see what the heck I’ve put out there over the years. The awesome thing about a blog and/or blog is that you have a log and diary of your life. It’s cathartic to go back and see your growth smack in front of your face complete with the various hair colors and makeup attempts. Thank God I found a good HD foundation!
At this point in my life, I’ve become the type that keeps my head down and does the daily work God places in front of me. It truly ROCKS to be purpose + mission driven because you get more laser-beamed focused and ignore the peripheral BS. It also keeps you out of your head, out of your own way and out from being stuck in that whiny, woe-is-me, somewhat depressed place I marinated in for so many years. Lawd help me! You’ve got a task, an assignment, a job to do here and when you get busy with that– life is such a fun adventure. Funny, how quickly we forget how far we’ve come because we are always looking forward. This is the ONE time I give myself permission to look back in the past!
Although this video is set around Thanksgiving a few years ago, it is still an IMPORTANT message TODAY. I pray whatever place you’re in- the cocoon, the transitional middle place or if you are soaring completely in your purpose- this message encourages you!
I would love to hear your thoughts.
Please share + like this post if it resonated with you!

Hey Style Sistas,
I’ll keep it short & sweet today. Here’s just a few tips to keep you looking & feeling fab this Fall…
Pumpkin season is approaching and I want to remind you to integrate it into your Fall beauty routine. Pumpkin is packed with Vitamin A & C and it’s blend of antioxidants make it perfect to use on your skin and hair. I love making a DIY mask of pureed pumpkin and honey to exfoliate, plump up wrinkles and the honey adds moisture. There are tons of new pumpkin skincare, bodycare & haircare products on the market. Make sure to eat it too!
The hot ‘must have’ coat this Fall is a faux fur in blush pink. I’m totally obsessed! If this is too bold and bulky, find a vest or even a furry scarf in blush pink. It freshens everything up and pairs beautifully with grey, camel, burgundy and even teal.
As we go into the final few months of 2014, it’s a great time to check in with yourself and gauge your level of Faith VS. Fear. Are you leaning toward fear on a regular basis? Remember, F.E.A.R. is False Evidence Appearing Real. Make sure to envision your life and dreams with the eyes of your spirit. What seems impossible with your physical eyes can be POSSIBLE with faith-filled spiritual eyes.

Happy Weekend My Sistas,
Many of you have asked me to please continue sharing the candid “Motivational Monday” vlog style webisodes that I have posted the past few weeks. Since last Monday was a holiday, I thought I would share some SOS love & encouragement at the end of the week. No makeup or fancy lighting- just my heart to yours:
Who is going to take this assignment seriously? I want to hear all about what you did for YOU this weekend and how it felt to “fill” yourself up. Remember, let go of the guilt and flip your thinking if you find that “me time” leaves you feeling selfish. You are actually doing your family & friends a disservice by not taking care of yourself. Living in the overflow will allow you to give- without resentment– to those who need you.
(2) SOS Blog Subscribers will win either 2 of the products mentioned in the Summer Beauty Regimen video or a TARGET gift card plus both will receive a signed copy of my hubby’s new CD, Octobersong and an “ALIVE” V-neck Tee. Go HERE for the details to enter! Winners announced June 6th. Good luck!

Make a date with yourself this weekend & let me know how it went.
It’s the last day of May! Remember to set your intentions for June, but then surrender it all.
Happy Sunday Sistas!
Change of Season.
These topics are being discussed quite a bit right now among my friends and colleagues. During a powerwalk yesterday, I was pondering why some people stay stuck and why other’s move toward change with boldness. I decided to share my thoughts in a Vlog…
- Make Up Your Mind: What do you really want? Make a decision and stop with the back & forth.
- Create A Strategy: What steps can you take every day, every week to making the change happen?
- Visualize The End Result: We are really searching for the “feeling” we get from attaining a goal/dream. See yourself already having made the change.
LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS.
