Thirty-five years ago, a G was born and that G is me. Today is my birthday! As usual, I’m very happy to arrive at another year and I’m proud and happy to say that I turn 35 today. Man, time flies when you’re not paying attention.
First off, let me know say, I’m not one of those people that make a big spectacle out of their birthday, I can even recall a couple of years when I forgot that it was my birthday until someone called to wish me happy day. Yep. I’m that person. However, I’m am one that loves and appreciates life. I acknowledge how blessed I am that I get to see another year with no pressing health issues or stressful issues. #SoBlessed
When it comes to reflecting and assessing my life and upcoming year, like most people, I do that on January 1st. However, I think I want to start doing some type of assessment on my birthday, as well. I want to use my birthday as a check-in/ progress report. I feel like I’ve been coasting for the past 34 years, but I’m ready to increase the speed and I’m ready for any turbulence that I might experience along way.
It’s the first Friday of fall and the first Link-End Round-Up for Fall 2016. Can you tell that I love the first day of things? Well, I do! Actually, I’m more happy for it finally being Friday. This week was very emotionally overwhelming. The main reason is because I finally came to terms with a lot of things that make me happy and productive due to me working on my discipline. So, in the process, I had to learn to stop doing some things that were holding me back while learning to embrace things that I needed to nurture more. It might sound a little confusing to explain, but in the end, I feel so rejuvenated and enlightened. It’s definitely been a process, but I have already felt and seen the positive effects it has made in my life for the better.
In other pressing news, the season of some of my favorite shows has returned and I finally had my first Soy Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season and it was great! However, I’m still in hot tea mode, because I still feel a cold trying to get into my life and I’m not having that with my birthday just a few days away.
So, my birthday is on Monday and I will be happily turning 35 years old. Some people dread getting older, but not me. I embrace it and enjoy it. Actually, I’m going to share more about my feelings about my birthday on Monday’s post. So, be sure to check back in on Monday to celebrate with me!
See you Monday and enjoy this week’s edition of Link-End Round-Up.
Yes, fall is finally here! I love this day, even though it’s still too hot to break out my combat boots and thicker cardigans. I did have my first pumpkin spice latte of the season to commemorate this day, because I refuse to enjoy a PSL in the summer. Very appropriate, might I say. I also decided to welcome it with an estylist Hey Fall look.
My style in the fall is a mixture of layered classic colors and textures with touches of fun prints and accessories, which is featured in this edition of eStylist. Please enjoy!
It’s hard to believe that the first day of fall is tomorrow. Maybe it’s hard to believe because the weather has been very stubborn about giving us any type of cool weather. However, my yard is slowly getting filled with fallen leaves and my car has condensation on it every morning, which are clear indications that fall is here. When every season changes, my morning routine seems to follow suit and I’ve already adapted to a fall morning routine. So, thought I would share it with you this morning.
It’s been a minute since I’ve bought anything velvet to wear, especially anything velvet for fall. Most people think of velvet as a winter fabric, because it’s a little heavier than most fabrics. However, not all velvet is the same and sometimes can be worn all year round. You can find some velvet pieces that are not only lighter in weight, but designed to be fall-weather friendly. Yes, even crushed velvet, my friends!
Currently, Velvet chokers are one of the hottest accessories of the moment. It’s a simple and stylish way to add some velvet to your look. However, there are countless of other easy ways to add some touches of velvet to your fall wardrobe without you looking like you are preparing to take Christmas pictures. Trust me.
So, if are open to the idea of adding some velvet to your blossoming fall wardrobe, I found some pieces that you can easily add to your closet. Not only are these items great for fall, but you can properly layer them to make them work in the colder days of winter.
