New to the Crew

 While home for the winter break I acquired two lovely pair of shoes! These JS pumps are the most comfortable. I was also happy to add some boots to my collection that were not black, I have tooo much black. 

I also picked up a new lip color. This is Rebel by M.A.C

Finally, new shades by Urban Outfitters. I know it is the winter but it can get very sunny here in Washington, DC.

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!

Winter Color Blocking 2012


Her hair looks amazing BTW! 

Hello loves!
I hope everyone is having a good week so far. This is the first week of the second semester at my University, so there are many things happening, but still I wanted to take some time out for a 'Looks of the week' post.

Love this leather skirt btw! Doesn't really go with the theme of this post but it is definitely a look of the week for me. I love the sophistication of it. Yet daring.

Winter color blocking is something I am going to start trending this semester and season. This works for me because it can create such a stylist get up and go looks, which is what I need for the semester. Well I have to be in in 7 hours. I hope everyone one has a great night!

New Years Eve Best Dressed 2011

Demi Lovato in Chagoury Couture                    Kourtney K. in Diane von Furstenberg                                     

Mary J Blidge in Herve Leger
Fergie in Nicolas Jebran

Here are my best dressed for New Years Eve 2011. I tried to pick one of each in the colors black, white, and sparkle but for black an white, although I came to a tie between the black. My New Years Eve was very simple an I just spent the night with my family at home. My favorite out of all the dressed above is the Diane Von Furstenburg dress on Kourtney Kardashain. Its absolutely  beautiful! I love the long split, the sparkle and the deep neck line, very sexy yet conservative which is totally my style! 

I hope everyone had a great New Years and I pray for many blessing for all in 2012.

Happy to see 2011 go and excited to walk into my future.
A future I will be more aware of as it becomes the present before it passes me by. So many things have changed over the course of 2011 and it was one of the most challenging years of my life. One of the years that has taught me lessons I know I needed to learn. Priorities change, people change, perspectives changed. 

After leaving my emotions behind and putting my potential first I have realized God forced this change on me. I knew in 2011 God was telling me to make certain decisions so I really brought some things on myself. Now it time to make some changes, not anew but progressing because I need the experiences of my past for my future.I am re-decorating my room and becoming more frugal with my funds. I am buying a yearly calendar and setting goals for the year that I will complete. For my future, for my family, for me. I don’t need easy, I just need possible.

Over the past three years I have realized many things about myself and made improvements for the better. I am proud of myself but I know I still have a long way to go. In the mist of those years I experienced the most blissful happiness. Although it came with some ups and down I know it was authentic and that God will bless me with that type of happiness again one day. I just pray that I haven't been scared and will be open for that when he sends it my way an deep down I know I will. The only problem was while moving forward in one lane I ignored God telling me to keep the balance with the other. Once time is gone it’s gone and all you can do is straighten up and make use of what you have left. December 2011 I made some choices: To put myself first, which I never had a problem with before but it was always in the wrong areas. While it is important to me to love whole heartily and selflessly there are sometimes conditions at 20 years old. Only my kin needs to come before me at this age and time in my life, an 5 year plan for just Kayla needs and is being developed. 

Loneliness is God isolating you so he can talk to you. Work on you. Feed your spirit. It’s hard for God to talk to you when you have people or things as your noise. I’m happy God have removed some things and much as I miss some, it was for a season, for a reason. What that reason is I have stopped questioning but what I do know is that I am blessed beyond belief. I have learned in the ends 2011 to take my eye off of the hardships and pain because if I don’t I will never make it. And I WILL make it. Remembering: Persistence, Performance, and Patience. No more games, no more procrastinating.

Making choices I know that I need to make.
Remember no one is going to hand it to me so no need to wait.
Removing things that I know don’t belong.
And even when it feels so right but it’s not, staying strong.

Priorities in place, dancing with grace, reclaiming my space.
