Ring in the New Year

Van Cleef & Arpels diamond earrings

                                                                 Psalms 90: 1-4

1Lord, thou has been our dwelling place in all generations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. 3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest; Return, ye children of men. 4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

Last Quarter Summary

The last quarter of the year was so much fun and full of inspiration. Yeah, my blog is my own inspiration too. I get very motivated when I put up blog posts and I also get entertained. My blog is my major source of social networking right now as my Facebook account is reserved for family interactions and I just signed unto Instagram not too long ago and I'm still trying to figure it out..:-) (I'm old school, I know!..Lol) but I hope to widen my social network a bit in the new year.

This is also to say thank you to all you bloggers that have made blogging so much fun. Thanks so much for stopping by here and for leaving your comments and thoughts. Let's step into 2015 with love, grace and style. **Woot! Woot!!

Embellished Sweater and a quilted Purse

2015 is almost year and it's almost unbelievable! 2014 has been an amazing year and I pray and hope that the new year would bring more amazing things to us all. It's still a festive week with the New year celebrations coming up. An embellished sweater like this one I got from Loft at the beginning of the fall is very work appropriate at this time of the year; combine it with a pair of corduroy skinnies and you can go anywhere and face any situation..:-).

Let's ring in the new year with a heart of faith and love; trusting in God above all things. He's the creator and giver of life and we owe our existence to him. There are so many that have passed and couldn't live to see this day or the new year and there are so many grieving at this time but we have been so blessed to be alive and blogging and doing all the things that we love.

My heart goes out to all those who are grieving or those that are in sad situations at this time and I pray that God almighty comfort them all. Life is not easy sometimes but what can we do? 'only have faith and move on.

Sweater: Loft (sold out) similar
Cords: Loft
Purse: Express here
Booties: VS here
Coat: old

I didn't mean to be all philosophical with this blog post but it is the end of the year and definitely the right time for some soul searching and reflection. I'm so blessed to have my blog because it has given me the opportunity to grow in every area of my life; it has made me more organized in all I do and it has opened the way for me to know a lot of awesome people and bloggers. Happy new year to you all and I'll be back soon with another outfit post and End of the year Review.

Blue, white, red and a twist.

Hi Friends; I'm trying to get all my saved archives unto the blog hence the multiple postings you might have noticed. I am also doing some housekeeping because I do not want to carry over any post from this year into the next year. This outfit here is what I call Christmas Casual. I wore it sometime last week after the Christmas holiday.  How else can we reflect Christmas in our outfits than to add a touch of red? My red coat was in significant rotation this season. The twist in the outfit is my black and white calf print pumps and maybe the necklace?

                                                                            Top: Victorias Secret
                                                                                              Clutch: merona: Target (old)
                                                                            Denim: Target
                                                                            Coat: Chadwicks (old)
                                                                            Shoes: VS
                                                                            Necklace: Walmart

I'm wishing everyone all the best in the new year. It's certainly time to do housekeeping because it's not okay to carry trash or garbage into the new year. I do not believe in New year resolutions though. All I do is pray to "be the best I can be." I was a better "Me" in 2014 but I pray to be the "best Me" in 2015. "We all should aspire to be the change we want to see in the world." I do not know who said or made this quote but I really like it.

Sushi Outfit

Hi Friends; I'm trying to upload all my saved pictures unto the blog before the year ends; three more days to go!!! Wow!!! I do not want to carry over any of them into the new year...:-). New year, new beginning...LoL!!! I couldn't think of a better title for this post so, I hope you do not mind and can find humor in it.

This outfit is what I wore to have dinner with my friends earlier this month at a Japanese restaurant. My friends were going on vacation for Christmas with their families and we wanted to have dinner together before they left so we picked a Japanese restaurant for our meet-up and it was quite fun. 

I wanted to put on an all black outfit then decided to put on this black and white print pant I got from Macy's a while back. For some reason, I couldn't find the earrings I wanted to wear that evening and after making a mess in my closet, I decided to just go without earrings but not before throwing on a statement necklace. I have been stocking up on them after I discovered the Walmart collection recently. These statement necklaces are the best thing to have come out of Walmart...:-). And at $10.00 a piece, they're a real steal. My hair was also all over the place but it was a situation of "big hair-don't care!"..LoL!!!

I had so much fun that night I can tell you. We ate and chatted well into the night and were the last set to leave the restaurant. The food was good too; it was actually my first time sampling Japanese cuisine and I enjoyed it. We took some pictures when we were about to leave and for some reason the lighting was not in our favor but we managed to save some pictures.

My friends are fashionistas; I tell you. They have kids like me but they are some stylish Moms! I liked the sequin dress and thigh high boots that my friend Bunmi wore and  Naya wore a black jumpsuit with a stylish leopard prints belt and a teal jacket; very chic and stylish. I'm going to re-create both looks on the blog. It was nice too for us to take out time from our busy schedule and the kids to just get together and have some ladies' time.

                                                                 Top: Target
                                                                 Pant: Macys: old
                                                                 Booties: Altuzzara for Target
                                                                 Jacket: Wilson's Leather: old
                                                                 Necklace: Walmart
                                                                 Bag: Jacqueline Farrar

I wish the pictures were better but that is it. I got a few more outfits coming up too. I wish everyone a happy new year in advance.

Thanks so much for stopping by
