On a personal note.....Birthday Edition

Well, its past midnight and officially my birthday. I'm not 30 until 11:11am according to my mom, lol! I was so scared at the thought of turning 30 and leaving my 20s. I had some really great times in my 20s. I got to experience the college life and meet all kinds of new and interesting people, been out in the real world working and trying to find my way, became a mom and just experienced a lot out there. I don't like that fact of getting older but things can only get better hopefully from here. Plus, I still look so young so I can get away with not looking older anyway lol. But I'm just happy to see 30 and have what I do have in my life. I know that I really need to get it together and push to get to where I thought I would be at 30. I believe that I have grown up a lot and have been learning from all the mistakes I've been making. I think I know better about most situations and just have more sense. I hope 30 brings new and exciting things into my life and just continue to grow and learn about life.


  1. Happy birthday pretty!
    You don't look like you just hit all!
    Best wishes, hugs!

  2. These milestone birthdays seem so difficult. But as a woman that has more than a decade on you, I can tell you that it is all what you make it. Women in their 30-40s are more self assured. We know what we want and how to get it. We are done playing foolish games that seem to be so popular with younger women and we don't need to take other women down to feel empowered. You are beautifully, gloriously you! Embrace your 30s for all they are worth. I really enjoyed my 30s and I am sure you will love yours as well. Happy birthday doll. I hope it's a grand one!

    1. Thank you so much Shalunya! I'm feeling much better about being 30 now, things can only get better from here!

  3. Hope you had a fabulous birthday! You certainly don't look a day past 25. Plus age is just a number. You're as old as how you feel. Xo

    1. Thanks Rhondine, I did have a great birthday.

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
