Beauties,

It has been so nice to get back into thrifting lately.  I didn't realize how much I truly missed it until recently.  For me, there's nothing like that thrill of finding something so different, unique and in perfect condition.  I've been finding some gems lately and I've even had the chance to thrift with friends too.  As my online audience continues to grow, I've started to get questions from people who are truly interested in thrifting..  I wanted to create this post answering questions for beginner thrifters and sharing some of my best practices.

Beauties,

Happy Fall!  We are officially in my favorite season and I can't be more excited!  With the start of a new season and temperatures slowly dropping, I know many of us are shopping for new items to add to our wardrobes.  Over the last few weeks, I've gotten a number of questions from people interested in purchasing Dr. Martens to add to their Fall wardrobe.  If you had told me a few years ago that I would be a lover, possibly even a connoisseur of Dr. Martens, I may have been a little surprised.  My style is forever changing, though, and my love for Dr. Martens started two years ago.

Beauties,

It honestly seems like all hell broke loose in our nation right after my last blog post.  As if coronavirus wasn't enough, we were made to witness the murder of George Floyd as a nation and it seemed like things began to spiral from there.  Racism and unjust killings of Black people have been going on, but in the midst of a pandemic, this was the first time so many were made to sit down, be still and watch what was going on.  For many people, it was their first time really seeing the Black experience and they couldn't turn away.


Beauties,

When it comes to having thicker ankles, I know all about it girl!  My ankles have been one of the parts of my body that I wished I could make just a tad smaller in the past, but not anymore!  I have learned over the years to embrace them.  The things you cannot change in life do not have to be a negative.  Learn to work with them!  I can't tell you the amount of shoes and ankle jewelry I could not wear at one point, but curiosity and my local shoe repair opened a brand new world for me.  So gone are the days of limiting myself and my fashion!


Beauties,

Two things that help me start my day are prayer and reading my devotional.  If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you are likely familiar with me sharing portions of my devotional daily.  Some parts of my devotional are so good that I know they may bless someone else so I started sharing them several years ago.  One portion of my devotional this week talked about friendship and provided a prayer for the friendships in your life.  It was so good that I have read it over and over again throughout the week.  I thought it would be awesome to share a variation of the prayer here on the blog.
