On a personal note.....

Happy Sunday loves!! Anyone having a Superbowl party or going to one? I will be watching the game but not going to a party. I haven't done a post in this series in a while and just want to talk to you guys. It seems like a light finally went off in my head and I got it. really pushed myself and workout out for a whole month and it felt great. I'm starting to see some great changes with my body and I'm going to continue to keep going. I feel so determined and motivated now and wondered what happened. I guess I wasn't ready for what is about to come in my life. I've learned to stop dwelling in the past and stop wondering what should of happened and what could of happened. I'm looking forward and not turning back anymore. I've learned to stop looking at what other people have that I don't, it's just not my time to have it. I know things I really want in life will come when I'm ready for it. I'm really working on my resume, applying for jobs like crazy and just waiting to hear "You got the job". I know it is coming soon. I made the decision to go back to school and get my masters and figuring out what career path is right for me. I just feel like I've been changing so much and I never gave up. Things may seem so crazy in this world and in life but you should always keep going and not give up. Never give up on your dreams, always go for what you want. I'm so thankful for those who believe in me and always support everything I do. My cousin gave me a camera he was no longer using so I can record better videos and my boyfriend got me tripod for the camera. I have found so much research on how to make this blog better and I want to succeed at blogging. The other day, another blog called Brown Girl Bloggers started following me on Twitter and when I went to their site, I was on there all day. They had so much information and things I never knew about. I learned so much and registered to be apart of their community. I took a chance and started putting some of my videos on You Tube and now have 21 subscribers. I just want to encourage you to just keep moving towards your goals and never give up. Things always get better in life, you just have to have faith and believe in yourself. Hope you have a great week, enjoy the Superbowl and see you Tuesday!!!

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…
