Make your apartment a HOME – Black & Gold Office Space

Black and Gold Office Space updatedl

My husband and I have finally moved to a place that really feels like home, now that we have been here for almost a month now it is time to decorate. We still do not have a clear vision of the direction that we want to go with decorating our new place, but first I believe that we need to start with our office space. Our  “Office space” is a really small area next to our dining room and I really would like  to do something with Gold. I would prefer a whit and gold office space but my husband thinks that may look to “girly”.  I tried to put something together that could possible satisfy both of us, maybe we will go with this black and gold theme. Or maybe we will try something different, for now this is our first option.


Any thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated.

Embrace New Beginnings

New Beginnings

Hey guys,

After a much needed mental break, I’m back…

I just wanted to give you all a quick update on what has been going on with me lately. For the last couple of weeks I have not been blogging as much as I would have liked too, and if you haven’t noticed there has not been any “Get Your Mind Right Monday” posts for the past few weeks (CRAZY, I KNOW!).

At the beginning of March there was a huge unexpected bomb dropped on me (and my friends/Co-Workers), I mean this came out of left field for me. I personally felt like I had been hit by a train physically and mentally and I was forced to make a decision as to what my next move was going to be for my family and I. I guess this just goes to show that you can’t get to comfortable in your current situation. I am a true believer that when God closes one door, another one opens with bigger and better opportunities.

One season of my life is coming to an end and a new one is beginning.

Don’t get me wrong, even though now I know that I am destined to accomplish great things in this next season of my life, my stress level had been off the charts for the last few weeks. I literally had to force myself to snap out of it, put a smile on my face, and take on the days as if everything was all good (I am pretty good at faking it until I make it). So I say all of that to say this, “I am only human”.

I was stuck in a mental rut, and it has taken me weeks to get back to a positive mindset. It has been so hard for me to stop focusing on what is happening in the present and focus on the positive that is to come in the near future (if that makes any sense at all). And I believe the reason for me having a “mental breakdown/blockage” is because I allowed myself to open up and get so comfortable with everything and everyone in my current situation, and I just have not been ready to let it all go.

So as I finally start to except that this season is over, I am slowly allowing myself to embrace the change and embrace all of the amazing opportunities that are coming my way. It is time to stop stressing and dwelling on the negative of the situation and really take my life head on and run with it in faith.

I am too blessed to be stressed!

Are you ready for the New Year?

I can still taste

Hi Beautiful People!

2014 has seemed to just fly by for me,  as my friend Monique would say ” I can still taste the Champagne from last New Years Eve!”

I feel like I did not accomplish ever thing that I wanted to in 2014. Ever since December hit;  I was kind of feeling like, what the heck did I do this year…I felt like I was becoming very overwhelmed with things that I thought that I needed to do by the end of this year with so little time. So I have finally come to the conclusion that I need to just let it all go and not worry about the  things that I did not accomplish and the things that I could not control this year. JUST LET IT GO!

Now that I have started to LET IT ALL GO, I have become very excited and ready to take on 2015. I have started doing the activities that I need to do to make 2015 a successful year, mentally, physically, and financially. I am so ready to tackle 2015 head on.

Are you ready for the New Year? Let’s tackle 2015 together!

Learning To Love

I figured now is a better time than any to share one of my biggest struggles that I have been fighting to over come for the past few years.

Over the past 5 or so years, my body has gone through some major changes, and I have had the toughest time embracing the changes that have occurred. I am ashamed to say that I am one of those girls that only post pictures from the shoulders up, so YES I am like the selfie headshot queen!

Learning to Love

I have come to the conclusion, that I have spent way to much time dwelling on the stupid stuff. I am not the same girl I was in high school, people get older and change. It’s life. Now I must focus all of my energy on living the life that I love and not worrying about what everyone else will think of me and how I look. If you have a problem with me or the way that I look, then that’s your problem not mine!!!

Over the past few weeks there has been so much going on around me, it seems like so many people have past away and more and more people are being diagnosed with  cancer or some kind of life threatening illnesses. I am so thankful that I am very healthy physically and mentally and I have been inspired to live my life to the fullest with no regrets.


So lets make a promise to live every day like it’s your last and get rid of any negativity that is holding you down.

Be yourself and know who you are

Know Yourself


Hey All…

As you may or may not have known, I was gone for a while. I took a little break from blogging to get myself back on track.

I started blogging for myself, to help me get some things off of my chest and to help me step outside of my comfort zone. But at some point blogging for me just became a little overwhelming. In an effort to be a better blogger, I started doing some research to gain knowledge on my new found blogging journey. As I began to learn more and more about blogging and viewing other bloggers blogs, I started to feel like I needed to structure my blog and find my “niche and I thought I had  to make my blog look all fancy and professional *ugh! I felt like I had to make my blog look and feel like all of the other lifestyle/beauty/fashion blogs out there.  ~GIRL BYE!

As someone once told me “F that ISH!” I am not a writer at all! I am writing this blog for myself and to help me step out of my comfort zone as I mentioned before. I am going to write about what I want, when I want, and how I want *BOOM* and a *SNAP* It’s time for me to get my life and get back to me and just have fun with this.

I hope you all still enjoy my blog and my journey, it’s time to get back to ME!

Make your apartment into a HOME – Fall Living Room Inspiration

It’s time for a change, I have come to the conclusion that it is time for me to redecorate my apartment. So with that being said, here I go on my new journey to make my apartment a home.

Fall Living Room Inspiration

Now the only problem is how am I going to do this? My mind is all over the place when it comes to decorating my own home. I really need to start putting my ideas on paper and try to find one set style and color palate that I would like to use in each room of my home.

Now that it is Fall, I am so inspired by the  season. I am loving the color scheme  for my living  room idea above. What do you think?

Stay tuned for more home décor ideas.
