Up Close and Onwards...

I'm back friends with my first outfit post for 2014; woot! woot!! I'm so excited for the new year because I know there are so many great challenges I'm willing to conquer both on the blog and behind the scenes. I'll go ahead now and share some of the goals that I have for myself on this blog this year and they are as follows;

1. Get myself a good camera: I have been taking pics with my iPhone and iPad for a long time now but would love to improve the picture quality on the blog. I might have to go back to using my tripod again since I would not trust my little ones to handle a more professional camera but better picture quality is a big goal.

2. Get more behind the scenes gist: I intend to open up more about other things that go on in my world aside from my faith and family and fashion and this means, there would be more gist on career and other achievements and goals. On this note, I would like to share  some good news with you. I just found out today that I was one of 15 applicants picked by my City's school districts to serve on Schools Enrollment and Capacity Management task force. There were over 90 applicants who applied for positions so, it's really a blessing to be amongst the lucky 15. The board members information would be made public soon and I would share the City and district website on a future post so that you can check out our activities. I would also share any bits of information that is not confidential on the blog.

3. Outdoors and Volunteering: I would love to spend a lot of time enjoying outdoors and nature this year and would like to share information about my adventure and exploits on the blog. I also want to do more volunteer work and give back to my community and starting with my kids' school PTO, I would also like to volunteer at my College Alumni. This might seem like a lot but I have to start from somewhere and take each day at a time. It's all about giving back. Let's make the world a better place.

Now, let's talk about fashion...:-)

Did you notice at all that I look a little slimmer?..:-) I have been working on losing some extra pounds and I lost eight pounds already; seven more to go. I also want to get more cardio workouts into my routine so as to focus on being healthy.

I would also like to get out of my comfort zone by exploring more fashion choices like wearing more prints and more color and also using more accessories. I just got on Instagram; can we follow each other? You can find me here.

Long sleeve tee, jeans and scarf: Target
