Tuesday Shoesday πŸ‘ 

Today on the blog sharing several of my favorite sandal choices for Spring Break from @Target 's newest brand called Universal Thread! The prices are really good and they are pretty comfortable! 

The Universal Thread is a new brand for Target. The clothing & shoes are all so stylish and affordable and will be good game changers for the next season! 

The shoes that I chose for today's post all mainly focus on versatility and flexibility and trendiness!  They all are great for a day at the beach and also a casual brunch. For each shoe option I have included a possible accessory or outfit recommendation for inspiration!

These shoes would go good with rolled up blue or white jeans and paired with a cute basic top Link to shop these shoes(http://shopstyle.it/l/BDaO)

When I see these shoes I think about pairing them for Easter brunch with a spring and flowy dress! I like that the sandals are brown and neutral so it can be paired with any dress design for versatility! Link to shop shoes(http://shopstyle.it/l/BDbG)


These sandals are cute paired with basic color jeans and for a casual day! I imagine a combo with black and white and neutral style/military style clothing! They come in this green color and black!

Last but not least these are great for a beach vacay. I could see myself pairing them with white pants and a floral top!

Hope everyone on Spring Break enjoys themselves as well! This is the best time to relax and recharge before you finish up the last portion of your semester! So have fun and enjoy yourself and most importantly be safe!

Peace & Love,

International Womens Day 2018

March 08, 2018

For the past 3 years I have written a blog post about International Women's Day and I feel like today's day felt a little different than the ones before. I feel as if today is a great reminder and affirmation of what I have been actively keeping in the forefront of my thoughts and actions for the past year. Women empowerment WOMEN EMPOWERMENT
I remember this snippet of a video I was watching of Oprah where she explained several aspects of her life and career's journey and how it shaped her to be who she is today. I remember very plainly a specific section where Oprah asked her boss for a raise and her boss's reaction to her question so plainly explains why feminists are here today.
His reaction to her rightful question of a raise was, Are you married?, Do you have children to feed and support?, Do you have a mortgage??  Her reaction was "no" and Oprah so plainly says that she walked away from the conversation knowing that it was time for her to move on and that she was not going to get that raise at that point in time..... The fact that her marriage status, amount of children and bills would be brought into the equation is shocking when it should be based on her performance alone. 
Now take a second and ask yourself this... Do you think a man would ever be asked those same questions in a performance review?

NOOOO the answer is a resounding NOOOO
This scenario alone is an example of the widespread subconscious belief of inequality regarding women that is so embedded in this country and so many other countries DNA. 
I think the best way to fight this is to actively bring attention to the hidden issue and to actively support other women!

I think today alone is not the only day that we as women should support each other and to actively and intentionally do this daily. That is my goal! So that my future daughter can live and excel in this country and not worry about fitting into glass slippers but worry about shattering glass ceiling!!!

Technology Update

March 01, 2018

Technology Update for the week

This by far has been the busiest week I have had in awhile and if you missed it, my laptop was broken over the weekend. My macbook of over 5 years that got me through late night assignments in college and was my go to for class notes and Pinterest scavenger hunts when the professor was way too monotone for their own good..... this laptop died a horrible and tragic death due to my foot somehow pushing it to its death..... and shattering the screen and ruining the motherboard....

YES I know I am incredibly dramatic but thats what life does to you when you have to hear and witness the horrible errie death sound of your laptop's incessant beeping to notify you that it has served its time and is ascending into the technology heavens!!  Im kidding but I will posting be updates from the delayed posts this week.

But on to the FANTASTIC NEWS... drumroll please......... I was so incredibly blessed to have my fiancee surprise me with a MacBook Air yesterday!! Seriously I feel so lucky especially since it was his birthday last Saturday and he turns around surprises me! 

So now I will be up and running and I'm currently tweaking the website for new changes as well!Mainly I just wanted to check in with everyone as I have gotten several emails of support during this time without my laptop! I seriously didn't realize how much time I spent on my laptop and think about how important and its integral aspect of my blogging career!

This week has been by far the craziest and I really  was able to realize even more so  how much I love blogging and it is seriously such a passion of mine and I am so grateful to everyone who has followed along on this journey with me! 

Exciting news coming up soon and I will be updating from the past 2 weeks as I have had several great content posts on Instagram that needs to be integrated over to the site as I will be sharing the links to shop my feed as well!!

Til next time,

Peace & Love,
