Stealing a Little Sunshine

"Sunny Days, Everybody Loves Them..."  It's all about perspective; the perfect day can make everything in life seem better.  Take that quote for instance, it's from the New Edition Song, "Can You Stand the Rain", typically a somber introspect, however, I decided to flip it and use it to inspire some fashion gold!!


If the color yellow doesn't inspire some greatness in you, I truly believe Hades should be your new vacation destination of choice, as a matter of fact, go ahead and take up permanent residency!!  For goodness sakes, it's the color God chose to make Sunshine, the single most important element to life on this planet. 


Wearing just one piece of golden goodness has the potential to improve even the sallowest of moods, and immediately helping others to see you differently.  The color can be found everywhere from full on jumpsuits for brave hearts to a simple cardigan for our more modest mavens.  It can even satisfy our inner diva by manifesting itself in the perfect ankle length denim cigarette pants to pair with our favorite animal print pieces.



For those of us who feel like they can't pull the color off in the physical in any capacity, think outside the box.  Smell is one our most powerful and engaging senses.  It has the ability to take us places in our minds we haven't been since childhood, and remind us of our safe havens.  Make an edition to your mind palace and spray on a scent that reflects the color.  Even just SEEING sunshine yellow in something pretty and shiny daily can make your day better(and it doesn't hurt if that perfume happens to be one of the most delicious smells your nose has ever come across either!).


The moral of the story is to take your cues from The ultimate source of warmth and light, The Sun.  There is most certainly therapeutic elements in that big, bright, beacon of energy.  Brighten up your life!!

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

Delightfully Disconnected

This idea started in my journal this morning, then I later thought to pose it to the rest of the world...I recently came across an article (linked below the post) on that talked about lucid dreaming.  I no longer believe in coincidence, an took this as a response to the unanswered questions bouncing around in my head about what is actually HAPPENING to my mind and thought process as I grow, evolve, and change.  It broke me down in plain English, and helped me gain much-needed clarity on my current situation... What the article basically said, in a nutshell is that we are never truly awake until/unless we are completely focused, and living in the present moment.  The concepts of past, present, and future are all one construct; all existing right now, simultaneously.  In essence, we are constantly experiencing these things both consciously, and subconsciously.  What we do from day to day, is experienced through a state of Lucid Dreaming; a sort of half conscious

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
