make a statement.

I have a few go-to stores and Banana Republic is one of them. I can always find what I'm looking for and find pieces that work very well in my wardrobe. This midi skirt is no different. I paired it with a blue washed Jcrew button down along with a statement piece necklace.

How would you style this midi skirt? Feel free to leave a comment below I would love to hear your ideas. Thanks for stopping by!

leave a little sparkle wherever you go.

Sundays kick off with the usual; I attend church with my family and I normally have to rush to work right after. It's nice when I get a Sunday off to relax. This past Sunday, I went out for brunch with a few girlfriends. We enjoyed great food, sipping mimosas, and good conversation. It's always interesting to get amongst other young woman who have different backgrounds, views, and personalities from me. We covered just about any and every topic and I just love how although we all aspire to be different things in life we respect one anothers' profession and support it. Ok, so lets rewind to the beginning on how we all got acquainted. We're all mutual friends with someone who connects us all together, one day all of us met over dinner and instantly clicked. Everyone was just very genuine, inviting, and we have been setting dinner dates ever since! I enjoy surrounding myself with positive individuals that like to shed love and light with the people around them. But you know what? It also begins with you. Whatever type of vibe you give off determines how people will react
and it also will determine the type of people you attract. Treat people with kindness and kindness will follow you; show people love and love will be shown back to you. We all encounter hundreds of people a day, sometimes more. Whether its the first time meeting, its someone you regularly see or a complete stranger you'll never see again... Always leave a little sparkle wherever you go!

good-bye 2015, hello 2016!

Hey Stingers, Happy New Year! Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday, I brought in the new year at church with family and close friends. 2015 has definitely been one heck of a ride! I started a new job in a higher position that required a lot from me, and to be quite honest with you I wasn't really prepared for. I traveled a lot and even traveled by myself for the first time in my life; I was so nervous but I'm glad I did it. Got an opportunity that would change my life and turned it down, started new projects that I'm proud of, and made decisions that I wasn't too proud of. I got my first major feature on a well known blogging site that really gave me some well needed exposure. Made a few new friends in the business and lost a couple of personal ones. I laughed so hard my stomach hurt and I also cried so hard my head hurt. All in all 2015 taught me so much, I've realized that things may happen in life (good or bad) but you have to keep moving. This journey is pretty difficult and I may need the help of God, close friends and mentors to get through it because I know I can't do it alone.

I'm excited to get started with this new year, I've even decided to create a new years resolution list for myself. Yup, I'm becoming a cliche sue me.

1. Put my spiritual life first (everything else can suffer but that)

2. Blog more. Like a lot more.

3. Make "being healthy" a lifestyle and not a trend. Eat cleaner, stay active. take better care of my body

4. Go back to reading more. like pick up the book and read. (and no instyle mags don't count!)

5. Travel, and travel (but only with purpose)

6. Go to NYFW (this needs to happen this year missy!)

7. Learn how to cook. take out has always been so much easier, hey don't judge.

8. Purchase an investment piece that my 30 year old me will be proud of

9. Make a decision to go back to school

10. Plan my own personal event that will get my name out there.

** Bonus ** Relaunch my blog (my baby needs a facelift!)

What do you think? What are your own personal resolutions for the new year? I want to hear from you guys, feel free to leave a comment below or you can also email me at sabinejean02@gmail.com Thanks for stopping by!
