These sandals need a post of their own *sigh* they Jessica Simpson
You know I was gonna try to put a bow in there
Happy Friday! As promise in last week installment voila!
My polka dots maxi skirt, this one was so much fun to make, although it wasn’t perfect, I kinda botch the whole “bow” tie idea but I was so happy to wear it.
Something about wearing stuff you make, just surge you with confidence, sometimes a little too much LOL.
This is my second attempt at styling the skirt, the first time… well it wasn’t so good but no one could tell me any different lol All I knew was that I made a skirt and I had new mint shoes.
The look wasn’t all that in itself but I felt all that. Some people say fashion is not about what you wearing is how you wear it… well I wore my fluke with pride.
That’s why to redeem the skirt, I re-style it with a simple black top and those pink Jessica Simpson sandal for a pop of color.
What do you think?
If you look for it, you will find it in the littlest things! Favor is everywhere, Favor follows the believer!
OK. I’m a little extreme with the “love”, but I think like is appropriate to describe my relationship with my smartphone so we’ll have to go with love.
Last year when I was cutting back, I looked at my $150 Verizon phone bill and thought it was ridiculous to pay that much money for a phone, especially when I don’t even talk on the phone.
Buuutttt it’s not a phone, it’s a smartphone LOL! See at night when I can’t sleep, I’m feeling empty and I just know I need God’s word to give me a boost. I’m not gonna turn the light on, put my glasses on, sit down and read my Bible but I can reach for my phone tap on my Bible app and feed myself. In this case my phone is my Bible and my reading light.
I can’t sleep, I had a headache, took some excedrin, caffeine got me all jittery and my head and flowing with ideas. Great blogs ideas, ideas you know you just have to write them down, because if you down, you gonna wake up thinking lets write I got ideas only to realize your great ideas from last night are now a figment of a far away dream unable to be put to words. How I solve that? Grab my phone, tap on my WordPress app and create a post and save it to draft, the next day all I have to do is clean all the android induced typos but I still have my ideas. In this case my phone is light, pen and notepad.
My phone is my GPS, my price checker at the store. I can see if Amazon have something cheaper than the store before I buy.
My phone is sometimes my mall, my magazine, my fashion Inspiration, my social life LOL
You name it!
There is abolutely no point to this saturday randomness whatsoever but if you feel like joining me…
How do you use your phone?
What is your smartphone to you?
forever 21 peplum top, DIY skirt, Tstrap Guess shoes, clutch LULU
and the hurr is 2nd day twist out!
can you tell I’m feeling myself?
and we can forget the shoes!
it’s been a while since I pull my sewing machine out of the closet, last week end I finally did and I’m glad I did!
I made myself 2 pencil skirts and a maxi one (Pictures to come).
I got this pencil skirt from Mimi G Style’s 15 minutes pencil skirt tutorial I love how easy it is and how fast you can get a style upgrade. I’ve made this skirt at least 5 times now. it is so much fun getting to wear things you made yourself. I got a bunch of fabric a while ago, I was hoping to get some more sewing skills before I touch them, eh well I figure I can mess up this pencil skirt and it turn out so great I’m in love.
I’ve never worn animal prints before LOL expect in shoes of course so this my very first animal print skirt.
I’m feeling all kinda haute couture! LOL
On a side note, My photographer is 5 years old! she is getting so much better at taking pictures I can see our partnership going a long way LOL
What do you think of my skirt??
I remember a few months ago when we adopted Petey from a adoption pet drive. That poor dog was so scared!!
This is him the day after he came home, it took me 40 minutes to get him out of the little corner to go for a walk which was an epic fail.
The first few days was so hard! He didn’t want to play he would hide in one little corner and no matter what I do he wouldn’t budge.
The reason is, he’s been bounce around from shelter and foster home, he was fearful opening up to his new family. He had to learn that we are his family. He had to stop identifying himself as a rescue puppy and learn to receive the love that his new family is offering.
Now he is such a happy and carefree puppy, he knows who he is and whose he is. He loves his home and protect it.
he is the man
There is nothing that can happen to me that God can’t turn into something miraculous.
Petey story for some reason speak so loud to me, I know it doesn’t matter where I came from or where I’ve been or what I’ve done… I am now in the family of almighty God. I’ve been rescued, I’ve been adopted I am part of God family now. There’s no need to be fearful and worrysome I’ve got a home now.
and it’s in the loving arms of daddy God!
It’s a happy day!
Happy Earth Day
Praising God for beautiful Hibiscus!
Sun peering Through
Ps 24:1 “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”
Today Is earth day! Like everyday we ought to take care of the place God gave us to live in. We ought be good stewards, not because of global warming or the fear that the earth is gonna crumble one day but just because it’s our home and God place us here to take care of it.
Gen 2: 15 “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.”
Anyhoo, we can’t all be farmer and go cultivate the earth, but there are simple things we can do to participate.
Plant something: My girls love planting, we started on the day of spring with seeds now our flowers are just beggining to come out.
A certain man’s best freind trample all over them but all is not lost we had some cups also we can replant.
Recycle something: I gotta admit this is not my strong suit, I always forget to separate but by getting the girls involve they keep me accountable.
turn the lights off, don’t let the water running… etc
There are tons of simple things we can do together to keep our home nice and clean!
Happy earth day!
What are you doing for earth day? or did you forget?
Hola Chicas! Happy Friday!
On today intallment of The Thrifted Series/No shoe left behind I showcase my Funky pattern pleated skirt!
When I firt saw this skirt, I knew I had to have it! I mean it’s funky, it’s pleated what’s not to love? I had no idea how I was gonna wear it, I was like should I bring out the pink? or the yellow? or the green yadiyada. I had it sit in my closet for a few months, then it hit me. I dont need to bring anything out, the skirt speak for itself, all it need is a simple black v-neck. and voila!
Nude peep-toes with bow. I love bows!
Added the large obnoxious yellow bag with my cute and comfy nude peep-toe & bow seal the deal.
I was comfy and sassy all day
Do you thrift? what is your most prized find?
Genealogy Of Jesus
Got a little caught up yesterday so we are having our Motivation Monday on Tuesday
Whenever I’m feeling inadequate and start to look down on myself I like to visit Matthew 1, where it depict the Genealogy Of Jesus. I’t remind me that it’s not about me it’s not what I think of me but wht God thinks of me, it remind me that I an worth much more and I’m more vualuable than I think. When they enemy start to pound in the condenmation and try to remind me how much a nobody I am, these name I highlighted in the passage are good ways to tell the enemy to Shut UP!
First in the lineage of Jesus (The perfect Son of God) you see Tamar, who is Tamar? she is a woman who pose as a prostitute and tricked her father-in-law into getting her pregnant!
Can you say eeewww!
Then we see Rahab: She wasn’t pretending to be a prostitute she was a real one!
Then there’s Uriah’s wife (Bathsheba) she’s the woman king David commited adultery with.
See how God take the most messed up folks and elevated them to be part of His Son birth?
Today if you like me was feeling condenmend about a past or some mistakes or whatever Don’t worry about it, God can use it.
You’re doing OK!
Remember a time when I use to have a the “no shoe left behind” series I’m thinking about incorporate my latest hobby in there too… thrifting
If you’ve been around the blogsphere for more than 10 minutes, you’ve heard how the fashionistas are raving about thrift store and consignment store. Well a while back my girl DivaMom took me on a thrifting trip we had so much fun, and I was amazed at the stuff we find that I kept going back myself.
It didn’t take me long to become to pro hehehe, and I have quite a collection of thrifted goods to share with you all.
For starter this one!
Thrifted Pencil Leather skirt and tailored blazer
This picture didn’t do any justice to the blazer, it has fancy button and belted bow, you guys know how I feel about bow
As far as my shoes, they are never left behind, because they are my comfy go-to black heels, so they get plenty of play time
Do you thrift? what is your most prized find?
A few months ago, my oldest baby girl turn 5, for her birthday she asked me for a Lalaloopsy dress, if you don’t know what Lalaloopsy is don’t fret I didnt know either.
there you have it!lalaloopsy dress
So I did a quick google search for lalaloopsy products, I found a few pajamas from walmart which were out-of-stock, amazon didn’t have any so I sadly told her I’m sorry honey, I could find the dress, let pick something else. The day before the birthday, I went out to get party stuff, hats and candles and whatnots, on my way back I saw a marshalls (my favorite place) so I went in, check the shoes rack, browse through the homegoods and made a quick stop by the kids clothes… and what do you know? it’s a lalalopsy dress just ONE in my daugther’s size! not just some dress with the picture on it, the real thing!
birthday princess in her lalaloopsy dress
I know we sing all the time “How Great is our God” but what a great dad He is? to care about a toys dress, a make beleive dress? and I didn’t even have to pray about, I mean you don’t go “bother” God about something so trivial right? but He still cares!
I’m just blown away.
God is a good dad! He cares about the littlest details of our lives.
Praise God! Happy Monday!
