As you may not know, I’m a Food Network fanatic. Every free chance I get, that’s what I’m watching. The other day, I was watching Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, and she made these delicious looking apple dumplings. They looked super easy to make & only required a handful of ingredients. Truthfully, I only had to buy the biscuits. Continue reading
I always try to be nice to people. I strive to be kind-hearted, and treat people the way I want to be treated. Anytime I’m around people, I always try to smile & look approachable. If I see an elderly person or a mother with kids struggling to get their groceries in the car, I always try to help. I try to remain polite & respectful to anyone I’m around. It just seems like the nicer you are, that feeling radiates, and people you’re around start to act the same. I love doing random acts of kindness. It makes me feel so much better inside. This year, I plan to do so much more in my community. I’ve wanted to feed the homeless for years, but never followed through with my plans. Giving back doesn’t necessarily mean giving money. Time is so much more valuable. Whether that means mentoring a troubled teenager or spending time at nursing homes with people whose family doesn’t visit them. I feel that I’ve been blessed so much that there is no excuse not to give back & pay it forward.

Hey Loves! This post is long overdue. These pieces were sent to me by the lovely Latreacia, owner of Monee Elizabeth, about a month ago. I’ve worn each piece around 3-4 times, but kept forgetting to photograph them. Monee Elizabeth is a very new company. She actually opened her Etsy shop on Nov. 1st, which is the same day as my blog anniversary! I’m so honored that she asked me to help her spread the word about her company. What I love Continue reading
Let me tell you what I hate. I hate when you buy a pair of over the knee boots & they fit perfectly in the store. Well, when you decide to wear them, they still look good on you. As the day progresses, you notice that you have to keep pulling & tugging on them to keep them up. At this point, you’re really really frustrated because they didn’t Continue reading
