DIY: T-Shirt Scarf

Peace Family,

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am blessed to say I did. My day was spent with family. My sister and I actually hosted Thanksgiving dinner at our house which was a first and we really enjoyed. While many folks were out partaking in the black Friday sales, we (my two sisters, cousin, her husband, and two sons) went to the movies and took a little time for some DIY which produced the picture you see above. I got the idea from Mr. Kate on YouTube. I will post a link to the video below in case you choose to make one yourself. The scarf was SUPER easy to make and fun to personalize. If you have any questions or tutorials that you would like to share leave a comment below. Until next time, I wish you all peace and light. Enjoy the video below!

Quote of the Day: Vision (TGIF!)

Peace Family,

Wishing you all a happy and fun Friday. Wanted to share this quote with you all as I read it this morning and felt very directed by it. I hope you enjoy as well:)

"Only a clear picture of who you are and where you want to go can help you prioritise what you need to do. We all make choices. The question is, are you going to make choices that bring you closer to your goal or take you further away from it?"

Quote of the Day: Fighting Fear

Peace Family,

Wishing you all a peaceful and happy Monday! Quote of the day below. Let's be fearless in our pursuits this week...

"We've all experienced the fear that makes us want to pull back. Only those who overcome it go far in life. '..."Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant"' (Psalm 35:27). Conquering the fear of failure begins with believing, 'God wants me to succeed.' Undergirded by that truth you cannot only defy your fears but defeat them."

Song of the Day: "Nothin Else"

Peace Family,

I've been listening to Justin's first album "Justified" so much lately. Reminds me of a really happy time in my life. Sometimes its nice to reminisce. At any rate, I like "Nothin Else" in particular because it has a Marvin Gaye feel that is just for lack of a better phrase: feel good. I mean it just feels good when you're listening to it and it stays with you. I find myself humming the melody long after the song has gone off. The lyrics are just great and creative and you can definitely hear Pharrell all up and through the song. Take a listen below and let me know what you think. Until next time, I wish you all peace and light:)

Quote for the day: Positive Thinking

"Thoughts of poverty and lack are a waste of the valuable power of the mind.  In order to experience wealth, success and well-being, it is necessary to train the mind to think positively.  Positive thinking is more than a cliche.  It is an attitude that embraces the wealth of the human experience.  The mind is a tool that can turn a negative into a positive with a stream of progressive thoughts."-I.Vanzant

Winter Boot Collection!!

Peace Family,

I am in the beginning of what is going to be a three part Fall/Winter series where I will share my shoe, coat, and skirt collection. The reason for my sharing these things with you all is to display how I have built my personal wardrobe over the years and how I have maintained each item. With wear and tear our clothes and shoes do become a little damaged, but with a few precautions, we can wear our favorite items for years to come! Enjoy the first video in the series below. Blessing for a peaceful and positive day!
