There's A Purpose And There's A Plan

Everything in my life has led up to this moment and I thank God because you don't ever really get things until hindsight. God has been orchestrating out steps since the beginning all in preparation for our purpose. Whatever it is you have been put on this Earth to do, remember that where you are now is place and an opportunity to prepare for that purpose.

Bad Girl Cat...Love Her

Not since Taniesha has there been a Bad Girl that I have liked as much as this season's Catya. She has had so many awesome one-liners:

"Men know their worth. We as women need to know ours".
So true, so true...I've been saying this for forever.

"It's because they're desperate".
In reference to two other bad girls hooking up with losers. I just like that she said it so matter of factly. There was no hater-tude in her statement at all.

I especially love her tantrums because even though she was way out of line, she managed to still look classy. "You gonna disrespect me? me?!" (motioning down her body with her hands in disbelief)

Love her:

Hard Times

I just finished watching an episode of Hard Times of RJ Berger. The show is kind of funny in a crass high school dude sort of way. I'm watching Part 1 of the season finale and as most high school finales of any sort go, it centers around sex. And this RJ dude's quest to get laid. It actually was pretty entertaining.

Still, after all the jokes have been made, you have to wonder is this how men view the world? Every event or situation is just some opportunity for a grand scheme always with the same objective: sex. Do men ever evolve past this? Or are they just hard wired to do anything and everything possible to get "some" ?

My Favorite Season Brings New Fashion Trends

As autumn quickly approaches, it's time to say goodbye to summer barbeque's and heat stroke. Ok ok I know I'm a little premature, but I'm so excited for fall!! I love everything about the colors, patterns, and silhouettes that hit the runway for Fall season.

Here's one trend I was ecstatic to hear about--60's inspired dresses!!Now anyone who knows me knows that I was born in the wrong era. I should have been a teenager in the 50s and a young adult in the 60s. I love those periods in American history...everything from the fashion, to the lingo, to culture. Everyone was fighting for what they passionately believed in and as cultural changes drove our nation to war--both domestically and internationally--people did their best to make the lives they wanted to live...
Ok, but on to the fashion:

Louis Vuitton A/W 2010

Full figured 60s dress. Loving the tan combined with florals very feminine, which i LOVE.

Jayson Brunsdon, S/S 2010

How inno-cexy is this dress? I love white dresses and this one has the air of being wearable all year long. It's very Betty Draper(yes that was a Mad Men reference...you don't think this trend just came out of nowhere do you).

L'Wren Scott, S/S 2010

OK, so how could I not love this dress? It's my favorite color and I very much appreciate the contrast of seductive and innocuous. The baby girl collar and sleeves, below the knee hemline, combined with the curve-hugging fit of the dress is so refreshing, yet timeless.

I'm so excited for this season's newest looks and trends, most of which I won''t partake in but it's like I say: Fashion is art. I can appreciate even if I don't own the portrait. Enjoy!

Why Can't I Relax?!!

On this lovely Sunday afternoon, I'm looking around wondering what I need to get done. I'm getting tiny ever increasing flutters in my stomach--a nervous feeling that I can't exactly pinpoint the cause of. I'm anxious, but I don't know why. Is there an email I need to send out? No. Is there an job application due soon that I need to fill out? Hell no. So what's the problem?

Doing nothing makes me nervous. It's one thing if I need a break because I've been doing so much...then I'm resting. But after resting usually I get right back to work. This sensation of not having anything to do at this precise moment is a novel one. So of course I had to alleviate the anxiety I was having by looking up graduate school programs. I immediately felt better.

This got me to thinking. Americans in their work-driven frenzy are in constant motion, working hard to get somewhere that--quite frankly--may not exist. In our culture, we work for the bigger house, the bigger paycheck, the prestige, the power, but we never take a moment to just stop and be. Vacations aren't even a form of rest anymore. We take a break from work to numb our minds with entertainment like the garbage known as Jersey Shore or the latest blockbuster movie. But it is all just a mechanism for not thinking about the many things we still have to get done. We work ourselves into an pill popping, anxiety ridden, stress overload, and then wonder why Americans suffer from so many health issues.

I have to learn how to rest. How to stop. How to breath. It makes life easier. Worry is not my friend. Anxiety does not have my back. Fret is not a good color on me. I can't be worried all the time. The Bible tells me not be

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"-Matthew 6:25-27
...so I'm learning. Slowly but surely...I'm learning that it's ok to have nothing on your to-do list. Now I'm gonna go read a book. For leisure....and I'm okay with that.

Fresh Look....

These pics are old, I think, but Ms. Badu was just looking too fly....I had to post them. Love the hair. Love the glasses. Love the nails. I hope know I will be that fly when I'm thirty something...

New Hair Color...?

Thinking of dyeing my hair. Can't decide what color to go with as, my hair is natural and it would need to go with my always inevitable fro situation...

A pretty multitone brown perhaps?

Or maybe a chestnut with blonde highlights?

Anywho...need a new look for the new start :)


One year and two months after graduating I have finally found full time employment!! YipEE!! :D
It has been a long time coming but God works things out in such a way that all you can say is THANK YOU and AMEN!!!

The position is located in California, the Bay Area to be more exact...how amazing is that?!! I spent a year in Georgia really resenting the place and I was able to find something back home...I love this state.

I'm so excited to start this new chapter in my life. A chapter with new stories, new problems, new experiences, and new good times. I will update about my job position at a later date, but I just wanted to post up that I am excited to no longer have to be looking for work :)

Thank you Jesus!!
