Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
It’s Monday divas and I’m back with my Motivational Monday’s but I am switching this up to be called Fashion in Faith for 2019! If you’ve been following me on Instagram @emaneescloset you will know that I recently lost my godmother, friend, second mommy all of the above 2 weeks ago. So this Monday I am seeking positivity and rejuvenating my spirit.
I decided that I would use this very well know scripture for today’s motivational Monday quote. Sometimes we need to get back tot he basics instead of complicating life and daily tasks. I am a strong believer of keep things simple… except my clothing lol. Sometimes when things become too hard.. so complicated that when you need to stop and listen to the lord. How do you listen to God? It’s simple.. seriously just stop.. push out all the negative thoughts, your own thoughts.. this if’s ands, and but’s and allow God to live through you.. God speaks to us all differently and you have to learn to listen to him. This is when you allow God to lead in all things you do.
No, it’s not always easy as we tend to just get up and do what feels right.. But who says what we are doing is right? Life gets hard and I have way to many testimonies where God seriously has given me the strength to get over many challenges. Everyday I pray with my husband, and before I go into work I pray again. I never know what that day is going to bring but I tell you one thing that prayer helps! I know you can relate, I’m sure you have gotten a call at work about something, a project stressed you out, a coworker was mean to you.. or even your lunch was nasty (okay maybe not) your child was bad at school, you got a flat tire.. The list goes on.. Divas call on him, he will give the strength to get through all things! Amen
Have a good week divas I hope this uplifted you.

Hey Divas, So I Might Be Vegan! Okay Okay you all know I love to eat everything I can get my hands on except mushrooms. Ha okay so my girl Kimberly of Might Be Vegan reached out to me to try out her monthly vegan recipe subscription. Sure why not.. there was a time in my life where I considered myself a vegetarian.. Well it’s only because “Kosher” meat was hard to come by.
However if you are vegan and are looking for great recipes or maybe thinking about it.. this is a great place to start! You Can start off with the 7 Day Jumpstart to vegan challenge for $11.95 or the In home Meal Planning subscription for $25/mo. Take you pick you won’t be disappointed! I opted to for the in home meal planning subscription and it has been an amazing experience. Plants never tasted so good!
I tried a few of the dishes and I honestly wished I had snapped a picture, but my hungry tail couldn’t wait to dig in! Hands down I never thought I could cook a vegan dish so good, but I did. Kim’s recipes and instruction made is easy to follow and to create a masterpiece! If you still aren’t sure Why not order some of Kim’s food for Thanksgiving. She is making Thanksgiving easy for you , family and friends! See all information below!

Hi Divas I have met a small goal of mine. Which was to obtain 1,000 followers by the end of the year. Well it’s October and I met my goal! Thank you to all of my followers on instagram. If you are not following me you can do so here!I thought today would be a good day since it was Monday to do a Monday motive segment on the blog and of course feature some fashion inspiration!
Speaking of goals, January will make a full year that I have been blogging consistently, and let me tell you I have learned so much. To my loyal followers, you would know that I first started off on YouTube doing fashion and hair videos. But I found that I just wasn’t loyal to making videos and shooting my fashion and writing about it came more naturally to me. Don’t get me wrong I am a natural in front of the camera… I think 🙂 But blogging just seemed more fruitful. I could just be transparent and physically type out my thoughts to all fo you. Like I said before it has been a journey getting to where I am at now, and I have so much further to go! I am actually just getting started.
I have a few questions for you.
- What are some of your goals?
- Have you started trying to meet your goals
- What are your passions
- What drives you?
Try to seriously think about this questions and reflect on them. Are you in a snail mode or a rabbit mode? Are you truly doing all that you can right now. Let em be honest I am not. I can be doing so much more. Don’t get me wrong I am not lazy but I am definitely a go getter and I am my own worse critic. But lately I just want it all and more!
So today I want you to write down your thought and put a plan of action together and start working towards those goals. Remember to stop saying I can’t.. or I don’t have time, we make time for what we want! don’t forget when you are doing great things do it in style!
For todays look I kept it super simple in red. I totally into red right now and just fyi these red boots will be appearing not eh blog several times! My beret and sweater is from SHEIN. I am so into berets as I mentioned previously on my blog and they are a must have this fall and winter! The sweater is a light knit that hits right at the waist but it complement the red and black stripe on jeans from NY & Company. Yaull should know where my booties are from.. of course JustFab. Thats it simple and chic. Have a wonderful eek Divas! make it count.

This has been long overdue. I have finally decided to add a lifestyle portion to my blog with style of course! I wanted to incorporate this section to challenge myself and to share my real life journey with you. I do to have challenges and although some of my pictures maybe nice, I have struggles just like everyone else. There will be a few sub categories that you will be able to choose form.
- Get Lifted: Here I will be discussing motivation, inspiration quotes to get you lifted. I and my husband are very religious and love doing bible study, doing a morning daily devotional. However life happens and sometimes we let “stuff” get in the way. I figured this would be a good way for me to share with you as well holding myself accountable of reading the word and making sure I doing my part to society as being a loyal Christian! So “Get Lifted” with me
- Food For The Soul: This is all thing food. Some of my favorite restaurants, recipes, what I am currently craving..healthy things of course :).
- Work It Out: Will be my most challenging section of all. As I have never ever truly had to “work out” working out for me equated to losing weight which was always a fear of mine. However as I get older and wiser..i know i need to workout to always be healthy. I will go into more detail about what it means to be a skinny girl and working out.
- Emanee Hair Trendz: If you have been following me for a while, you would know I use to have this section o my blog and then I removed it. Well guess what it’s back!I love anything hair! from, braids, blowouts, twist outs, sew in, natural hair, permed hair.. trending hair products you name it I love it. I will e sharing some helpful hair tips. Most of these tips and tricks anyone can use.
Come along with me on this journey as you will view my life in style.
xo happy life divas.
It’s Friyay, I am starting to learn not to live for Friday or the weekend but to live for each day and make it count. Life can be so much more enjoyable that way. Because I am living in color this summer I thought this super chill but colorful outfit is perfect for a Friday or weekend look.
I found this cotton grey tassel dress form Versona. Versona is a women’s boutique store that has trendy pieces, accessories, shoes, and much much more. If there is not one in your area they have an online store. Tassels and embroidery are trending right now and I couldn’t pass up this cute little number. It’s thick which is great for all seasons. I scored this dress for $24. Oh and let’s not forget it has pockets. Don’t you just love a dress with pockets? I sure do.
This piece didn’t need much jazzing up but you know me, I just had too. I used my Victoria secret tote bag as my purse along with these neon yellow booties from GoJane. To top this look off off I wore my white cat eye sunnies form Ross.
That’s it super easy and cute. What are your weekend plans?
Find this dress in stores and other cute dresses on at Versona.
