Hey Divas, last week I mentioned how God was testing me. It’s by no mistake when this happens. Whew boy is he not only testing me but seriously pushing me to look at myself to grow. I swear this quarantine Pandemic Coronavirus of 2020 has shown me some ugly truths about myself and my past. I say ugly but I truly mean deep-rooted issues that I had no idea even existed. I am honestly happy that God is showing me these things because it allows me to change now before I allow these things to affect my marriage and future children.
I like to call this season a cleansing of the soul and a renewing of the spirit. Today’s meditation scripture comes from Pslams 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Have you ever heard your parents or a wise elder say be careful what you wish for… Well, I must say I had been praying this prayer and here I am now. God is truly working on me and I know I have a long way to go but during this time I have been finding myself praising and understanding more about myself and things that didn’t make sense before are now. I have learned that I have full control over my mind body and spirit. I choose to allow God to guide me through this thing we call life.
For that, I am pleased with the journey that I am on. Has God been cleansing your soul or renewing your spirit? I would love to know so let’s chat! Have a good Monday and stay focused.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
I stumbled upon this passage right when I needed it the most. As many of you know my godmother passed last month and it did take me by storm. When I returned home from her funeral my husband had the house clean bed made.. and this devotional sitting on my night stand by my side of the bed. I looked at it and smiled.. but looked closer and this scripture was right on the front cover. I knew this would be our spiritual premise for the month of February.
I have faced many challenges and obstacles in my life and boy do I know there’s more to come. I just try to position myself where I am prepared for whatever is to come. I try to learn from what I have already gone through and apply it to the next situation.
So what is a conqueror? What does this word mean to you and how are you allowing God to conqueror your life?
- To be honest I didn’t know what it meant to conqueror anything. I had never thought about my struggles as accomplishments and conquering them. Whenever a problem or a tasks arise something inside of me would kick into go mode, and to find a solution and execute! Well that all changed as I grew older, wiser and closer to God.
- Conquering to me means achieving
- I allow God to conqueror my life by listening to him daily. I have found that I have to be spiritually fed in order to maneuver through life. Daily I must subject myself to him. Because lord knows if I operate in myself I can do some serious damage, make unnecessary mistake etc.
Let’s conqueror this month divas! Be bold, be you and say true!
Mali Music- More Than A Conqueror is the perfect song to meditate to this month. I once praised danced too this song and let’s just say.. Amen! To this day it still gives me that energy that I need when feeling low!

I truly am a grandma at heart. I have always been called an old soul, or the little old lady from Pasadena-that my sister calls me. But this outfit truly take me to my inner old lady. why because this is something my mom or grandma would wear. My mom isn’t an old lady but she’s a grandma so she fits into that category!
This outfit is not made for old women but just embraces that old ole 70’s vibes mixed with modern flare. Eva Mendes does a great job with embracing her culture, heritage and inspirations form her loved ones. I absolutely love this denim chambray ruffle skirt. It comes with a denim belt, and lime green and purple buttons down the front. I can’t get enough of this carmel colored crochet sleeveless top. It is so light weight and just goes perfectly with this skirt.
I topped this look off with my colorful head wrap from Bold looks and headwraps, a crochet side satchel and matching brown block heels.
This look is so simple and cute and can be worn anywhere.. I just may wear this to work this week :)!

You made it loves to Friday! I told myself I was going to stop living for Friday’s ad the weekend and enjoy each day as they come. Well I am still happy, no rain just sunshine.. I am in desperate need of a beach, lemonade a good sun bath so I can look like a toasted Almond lol.
Okay so let’s get right into this look. I have been working on my weekend chill vibes look, as I have so many professional clothing.. but I am doing better… I think? This 2 piece short outfit is from Shein. Shein is becoming one of my alternative favorite online boutique to snag cute little outfits like this. It’s cheap and gets you through. This outfit also comes in white floral and is under $20.
I decided to pair this outfit with hot pink. It just needed a pop of color, and hot pink did the trick. From my old but goodie Coach flats to my hot pink headwrap, my light pink Betsey Johnson sunnies top this look off.
How do you take simple outfits and make them pop? XO happy Fashion Divas.
