Declaring Your Dreams


MLK Quote

Well, today is a momentous day. It’s the swearing-in of the President for his historical 2nd term. It’s also the day in which Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.‘s legacy is honored. As many people take this day to volunteer their time to worthy causes, and as an African-American is sworn in for the 2nd time into the highest office; a man’s dream has not only become reality, but it continues to thrive.

Exciting Places to Shop in the New Year

Finding great New Year fashions for yourself and your friends can help you to kick off this year with an enthusiastic beginning. If you have grown tired of your old wardrobe, I can relate! I have found that when I shed away clothing that makes me feel drab and step into a slinky new dress that is radiant with bright colors, I instantly feel vibrant and confident! This year, take your own fashion diva by the hand and make a commitment to look and feel your best.

2013 is a fresh new start for a fresh new wardrobe and health and beauty commitments. Checking out DIY websites such as Pinterest can give you numerous great ideas to create a sexy up-do for your hair and also teach you some great home remedies for maintaining radiant and clear skin.

Pinterest, and other DIY websites, are also ideal sources of information to learn how to transform old sweaters into chunky cable scarves and thick, fashionable wrist bracelets. From learning how to knit the perfect, darling cap to transforming the way your skin looks, taking time to look at DIY sites can give you one great idea after another!

Is 4 percent enough?


One of several versions of the painting "...

One of several versions of the painting “The Scream”. The National Gallery, Oslo, Norway. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I feel like the person in the Scream painting. You know the one by Edvard Munch, where the disturbed, ghostly figure of a man is centered within a nightmarish atmosphere among a morbid background. How daunting. How disturbing. How hopeless. To me that’s what the painting conveys; but I’m no art expert, so take my criticism with a grain of salt. Anyway, that was the vision that came to my mind when I read an article stating that only 4% of your annual salary (post-taxes) is supposed to be designated toward your wardrobe.

REALLY!?!

Get The Look…Rita Ora


Today’s t-shirt look is inspired by Rita Ora. I love her style. This is definitely a laid back look that I would sport on a casual day. Take a basic black t-shirt with black jeans and sneakers, and add some cool aviator shades for a laid back rocker ensemble. Now the shirt that I have chosen is not the actual t-shirt that Rita is wearing, but one that fits the bill. If you do want to know more about the artist/photographer responsible for the t, then check out Mari Sarai’s blog. Here’s a warning that the contents may not be acceptable to everyone, so if you’re under eighteen, ask your parents first :-).
