On a personal note.....

I think I have embraced my new age of 30 now, I'm over the initial fear I had about leaving my 20's. But I'm still like trying to figure out my life. I had to stop by the store on day and when I got back in the car, I just broke down. Things were just going all kinds of crazy that week. My current employer is making one too many changes and it affects my position. Plus I'm only part time for now and this job market is crazy, it's so hard trying to find something, let alone get into an interview. And I just want to be able to support my family and be stable. I'm grateful for having a roof over my head, even though I'm still at home, I have a job and clothes on my back. I've been struggling to learn patience. I'm always trying to rush everything and I need to let go of the wheel because I am not in control. Things happen for a reason and I know that things will get better, I will get where I need to be, but not on my time. I just have to keep pushing and keep myself motivated that I can cross the finish line and overcome this setback!

One year, I will get to New York Fashion Week!

I have no problems leaving the house with no makeup on!


  1. Set backs are what makes us stronger as we persevere through them. I always remember a quote: "You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice that you have."
    Keep pushing on will all be worth it. (I give myself this same pep talk all the time when things become a little unbearable)

    Have a wonderful day xo

    1. Thank you so much for the encouragement! I really appreciate it! That is a good quote to know and go by!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
