My Faith

 Hope you're having a wonderful work week . This months series of "My Faith" I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite motivational books , that have helped me over the years . Reading is my relaxation it calms me when I'm thinking too much or when I need a social media / blog break .
I love reading the old way , turning the pages, highlighting quotes etc.. no kindle books here lol
"The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne- help me to change my thought process
"Our Spirits Renewed" by A.D. Roberts - gave me a refreshing new look at life's greatness
I hope these two books are just as much a blessing to you:)

Dew You

mountain dew t-shirt (Menswear/Walmart) skirt (F21) heels (Gojane)
accessories (Thrifted)

The moment I saw this tee I knew I had to have it in my wardrobe,  You all know how much I love menswear paired with feminine pieces .By pairing a pencil skirt and 6inch heels with a graphic tee you go from casual to chic without trying too hard . Throw on a bold lip and the right accessories and you're ready for happy hour with the girls or date night with the boo .So the next time you're out shopping stop by the mens department you just may find your perfect tee:)

frames (Ny&Co)
The highs and lows of Fall in Florida that is ... Can be amazing somedays and other days I'm wishing I lived up north where there's actually seasons . I know some of you who live in the north think I'm crazy right??!!!  I  know ... "I live where you vaction" well I'm ready to see leaves falling and snow on the ground but instead it's 90 degrees + So until I convince the family to move north I'll just dream of the perfect Fall weather .
