Happy New year beautiful people! Welcoming you into the new year in this velvet burgundy holiday dress! Velvet is a big hit this season and it’s not going anywhere any time soon. Festive fabric and colors are so fun and chic to wear. This rich burgundy color compliments my satin coat so well, and added to the festive look are these shimmery tights.  

Are you excited for the new year? I know I am! Fresh start, new beginnings, new excitements! I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me and for us all. Let’s enjoy the ride one day at the time and try to find a glimpse of light in all things!  

Thank you for reading!

Love & Light,

year-in-review

What a year 2017 has been! I’m still in aw that the year is over! As I take a look back, I realize how much I’ve truly grown, learned, and overcome. Sometime, you forget or overlook all the (great) things that happened until you look back and reflect upon them. In spite of all the chaos that may have happened, whether it’s in our own life or around the world, there’s always something to be grateful for when we pose for just a quick second and reflect; and we may just be amazed of how beautiful, life (still) is!

“Clear hindsight of your past makes it easier to have clear foresight for your future.”

2017  has been an epic year for me and for my brand!  My word of the year 2017 was “Manifest” (Read about it here) and I couldn’t be any more grateful for all the things that I accomplished and manifested. The amazing brands that I collaborated with, the shout-out and features, the constant support from my loyal readers and friends, new and amazing friends that I made or met, the launch of my online store and the growth in general that I have experienced as a blogger and entrepreneur, and even as a person! I wouldn’t sit here and lie that all of these were some easy walk-in-the-park moments (because they weren’t!), but with discipline, consistency and FAITH, it was all possible! Trust me, It hasn’t been easy even being disciplined and consistent or always keeping my head up with a positive attitude, but I know I’m a work in progress. Transformation is a journey without a final destination; and I can’t wait to see what my next chapter of the new book will read!

To all of you who have been of such great support since Day One, and all through out the years, I’m truly thankful for your continuous support, for sticking with me, and for allowing me to share my journey with you. It truly means a lot! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Let’s make 2018 an even better year!

From my family to yours, I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

  • Love yourself a little more 😉 
  • Live each day with intention and purpose
  • Start that new passion of yours
  • Develop new and fulfilling relationships
  • Live in the moment and to the fullest
  • Visit new and exciting places
  • Accomplish all your goals and win big!

 Cheers to a wonderful 2018!

Love & Light

It’s official! Christmas is (almost) here!  Are you guys ready? Pssst… I’m not! Ha!

This asymmetric midi dress is one of the most comfortable yet stylish and versatile dresses that I own. For real! If you’ve seen me in town a few times in this same dress for the past couple weeks, don’t worry; everything (and everyone) is fine. I’m just obsessed with the dress. In fact, I also have it in a festive yellow color, and you probably remember it from a previous post here.

Beside the comfort and the feel or quality of this dress, it’s just amazing how you can dress it up or down for any occasion you chose to wear it for. Check out how I added a little bit of a twist to it here, and how I went a more casual route here. You just can’t go wrong with either way.

This may not be your typical holiday dress, but it definitely makes an all-year cute, fun, and chic dress! I love the warm tone color of olive which is also perfect for the  season. I think these sleek pumps in one of the most coveted colors of the holidays are the perfect addition to the dress.

Wear  this dress or a similar look to just about anywhere you need to be this season; and you will fit right in… But again, who wants to fit in anyways, if you can stand out!? 😉

P.S. You would notice that the yellow dress (one size up for the comfy ample oversized fit, look, and style) here or here shows more the asymmetric feature. This being said, beside the many cool colors to choose from, the sizing would also be something to consider, depending on how you would like the dress to fit, feel, and look on you! Again, whether you go with your true size or the next size up, you cannot go wrong!

To find out the one you like better just get two sizes in two or many colors! 😉

Thank you so much for reading and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Love,

Happy Saturday beauties,

I hope you’re keeping warm and safe. I’m just making a quick stop here to share this All-Black outfit, I wore to a funeral a few weeks ago. It was a bitterly cold day, so I was unable to reveal my dress for the photoshoot. It was a black statement sleeve dress I previously shared Here! Overall, a classy and elegant appropriate look for the occasion.

I hope you have a fantastic day. XO

Hello beauties,

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re getting ready for Christmas. I have to confess that I haven’t done any Christmas decoration yet. I have been extremely busy with work and projects on which I need to meet certain deadlines. I’m not really complaining, but the kids are eager to see at least the Christmas tree up, but mom won’t let them feel the magic of the season… just yet lol.

Since our family’s tradition is to have everyone involve in the decoration, I need to make this happen sometime soon. The plan is to make it all happen this weekend and I’m crossing my fingers. HA!

Anyways, I’m back with another #ootd: A turtleneck short sleeves top with some comfortable grey slacks I scored at Target a few weeks ago. This simple basic look can take you from the office to dinner with the girlfriends or from brunch to a get-together with friends or family. Sometimes, with such cozy yet not too cold weather, all you need is a nice and comfortable top or sweater and a pair of your favorite jeans or slacks to go on with your day. If needed at all, throw on a cute little cozy jacket to keep warm. Believe it or not, Mother nature is being extremely nice to us here, in the midwest, and I’m not really complaining. Who would, right!?

Well, I hope you like today’s outfit post, but before I sign off, I would like to leave you with a thought to ponder : When you feel as though you have nothing to give, you can always offer your gratitude.
