COLLAR DRESS




Happy new day! This is probably one of the most preppy dresses I own! 


I first opted for a long piece of jewelry since the neck is covered. However, the shimmery details gives this dress the perfect amount of shine all on its own!



The weather was great this particular day so I didn't have to layer much expect for wearing my cardigan.



I plan to keep this dress in rotation in my spring wardrobe!


Well as always thank you for reading and have a blessed weekend!

MY QUOTE OF THE DAY


Happy new week! I hope that everyone had a blessed weekend! I am a big believer in having goals and dreams. 


There are challenging times or people in your life that may try to steal your goals and dreams with discouraging words or sometimes discouraging acts. However, no matter the circumstances hold tight to your dreams. Its not the best feeling when you stop dreaming but even worse if you do not even realize that you have stopped dreaming.



Your dream is not your own... so you owe it not only to yourself but to others that will be affected by you succeeding at your dreams to never give up! This leads me to my quote of the day

 " If a dream is lost then dream again... and do whatever it takes for you and those around you to win"
As always thank you for your support and have a wonderful and blessed week!

5 COMMON MONEY MISTAKES & SOLUTIONS





Happy new day! I wanted to share some common money mistakes and solutions:

1.  Mistake: Not negotiating the salary you truly desire and deserve when you are seeking a job.   The biggest raise most times you will ever receive is when you initially get hired.

  Solution: Figure out in advance what your time is worth! If your potential income only pays the bills and does not allow you to pay yourself then ask yourself is it truly worth your time. If you have an option negotiate for that number that will allow enough extra money to save and splurge if you desire.

****Tiny Tiff tip.. Get your salary in writing as a
well as yearly increases and bonuses before you accept the position.
 
2. Mistake: Not investing in your retirement. I know you have plenty of time right? No the time is NOW! The earlier you start saving the less you have to put away towards building your retirement income.

Solution: Invest early into your retirement plan at your job. If you own a business then it's important that your business is running efficiently so you can save a percentage of that income for your retirement. Remember as business owners we are our own retirement!! It's up to us to get it done!

3. Mistake: Relying on credit cards and not having the ability to immediately pay off the balance without incurring any interest.

Solution: Resort to a Cash System immediately where you pay for everything with cash. Another option is you can also have your credit card linked to your cash account. Therefore when you charge something the cash immediately pulls from your cash account. Now you can charge items guilt free and debt free.

4. Mistake: Not having a visual financial plan for your life. When you can see it, believe it then you will definitely seize it!

Solution: Get a pen and paper and write down your short term and long term financial goals. You can even draw or paste pictures of what your financial freedom plan looks like. At this point it becomes a blueprint for you to follow and a way to measure how well you are achieving your goals.

Well I hope that you have a blessed day! Thank you as always for your continued support!

MY QUOTE OF THE DAY


Happy new day! The weather has been absolutely wonderful this past week.


I finally had a chance to wear this tailored fit white shirt from Banana Republic this weekend. I did size up to a 2 to prevent any gapping in bust area. Well I know there is nothing exciting about a white shirt... right?



However it did give me an opportunity to glam up a basic look with some sparkly heels and this pretty pink Furla satchel.


I have been gravitating towards this bag so much during winter season.

These heels are so glamorous and add a special touch to this look! I wore these heels throughout the holidays and now I'm incorporating them into my looks for the new year!



Well I was not prepared for this unexpected spring weather. I have been looking forward to cooler temperatures and wearing winter attire. However, I have used this temporary spring like weather to enjoy more outside activities, spruce up my landscaping and play my favorite sport of tennis. This situation brought forth my quote of the day on having the best attitude of gratitude!!

" Always find the best in what you currently have until you get what you truly want"

Thank you as always for your support and kind words! Have a wonderful blessed week!

MY QUOTE OF THE DAY!


Happy Monday! Most times we are one blessing away from a major breakthrough in our lives !


In order for this blessing to take place most importantly you must have faith. When you demonstrate a life of faith your thoughts, words and actions always remain positive because being negative is never an option.


Therefore, when challenging times arrive you will be in the right head space and most importantly heart space to overcome it. 




Your faith is like the sun. It gives light to everything and it energizes the soul . Therfore that leads me to my quote of the day. " Your faith has the ability to strengthen you and everything that's around you"

Have a wonderful and blessed day! Thank you as always for reading.

MY QUOTE OF THE DAY


Happy 2017! This is often a time of reflecting on the past in order to prepare for the future.


However, there is nothing more important than the happiness you can experience now. You have to protect this happiness by allowing yourself to feel those emotions of the past whether good or bad. ..that's part of healing embracing your feelings. The quicker you acknowledge these feelings the quicker you can move to what is truly most important which is your present moment of happiness.



That leads me to my quote, " look back only for the lesson which ultimately is your blessing"
Have a beautiful week ahead and as always thank you for reading.
