I think maxi dresses were made for the summer weather. I can’t think of a more comfortable thing to wear when its hot and humid outside. You can dress a maxi dress up or down very easily, they are usually pretty affordable and I have a nice variety of colors. I usually don’t pay anymore than $30 on a maxi dress. I prefer the jersey material because it has a little stretch and it doesn’t cost a whole lot.
The jersey material is practical for everyday wear. When I found this dress I immediately fell in love with the color, then I fell in love with the white trimming. During the day I’ll throw on some sandals, I also like maxi dresses with sneakers, basic skippies.
I’ve been trying bold lip colors, this one is called Va Va Violet by Revlon at my local Walgreens. The color is royal, rich, and bold. I think royal blue and purple shades compliment each other very well.
I also tried smaller bantu knots in my hair, I’m not sure that I love the smaller curls, they didn’t come out as defined as I wanted them to because it was so hot and humid the day I took the photos. I’ll try a different technique next time. What summer styles are you looking forward to? Anywhoo…I’m swamped at work this week, can’t wait for a mini vacation.

Love, peace, & happiness
Hi beauties…Happy Monday! I feel so blessed because every time I think about where I was 2 years ago, I have to give God thanks. I have to thank him for bringing me through the storm! I know that where I am today has everything to do with his grace and mercy. I want to celebrate life because this month is my 2 year cancerversary! In the cancer world we celebrate every milestone…small and large because we know how quickly that can all change.
I feel like jumping for joy and crying uncontrollably at the same time. It has been a very long fight. I pray that I remain in remission forever. I pray that my sisters and brothers fighting this disease every single day find comfort and support the way I did through friends and family. I’m living proof that you can bounce back and I’m proof that cancer does not dictate my life! What are you currently celebrating?
Speaking of celebrations, I attended ” The Beautiful Business Woman Brunch” this weekend..any excuse to drink mimosas…LOL! It was another women supporting women in business gathering and it was so worth it to go and meet other women like myself. One of the key points made by Divas With A Purpose was learning to celebrate yourself and your own accomplishments. She also talked about how celebrating each other is a win win for everyone. I just love the path that I’m on now, I’ve always had my own hustle but this event reminded me why networking and building new relationships is key to growing your business.
I’m excited to announce the return of my accessories. Anyone that knows me knows that I started blogging as a way to promote my accessories business. I later incorporated my blogging, I’m returning back to selling fabulous accessories because I do it so well. Stay tuned for the return of trunk shows and other affordable accessories!
