This thing called life.

Life has this amazing way of surprising you. When you think things are going great, sometimes your world suddenly get turned upside down. If this is not something you’re used to, it can rock your world. I do believe that you are not given more than you can handle, but let’s be honest, most people don’t want to hear that when they can’t find the light at the end of the tunnel.

(I am in love with this jumper from Shein.com)

 

 

 

Whenever I get through something, I always think back. I take note of my strength and look at life in a different way. For me, ever experience, including the not so good ones are a learning experience. Some things you can’t control, but for those things that you can… take notes so the same mistakes aren’t repeated.

(Stripes are life, I love me some stripes: Jumper from Shein )

On the flip side, sometimes you can be going through hell. You can’t see an up… the term when it rains it pours come to mind often, and then, out of the blue… life shifts. Good things start happening, days are not so long and nights are not so dark.

This thing called life is interesting. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t experienced both in some way shape or form.

Summer is all about keeping cool. DRESS for the occassion!

I have this obsession with dresses. I always feel super sexy in one, no matter the style. I’ve always loved dresses. They have been a staple of my wardrobe for years. I think the best thing about dresses is that it is one piece. So easy and simply, find the right shoes and you’re good to go. In the summer it is essential for me to find the easiest things to throw on. My patience with this heat is thin, lol.  The best thing about a dress is the ease of it.

 

Recently I added these two beauties to the list. They are of similar style but different flair. This white dress with the black and white off the shoulder look is so comfortable. I love how easy flowing this dress is. This dress will be in my top 5 dresses for the summer. It is fun, cute and easy to style. you can find it at Amiclubwear.com. 

The shoes can be found at Justfab.com

A similar bag from the same seller can be found Lovecortnie.com Now… the style of these dresses aren’t my everyday go to . So I was a bit nervous, but if you read my last post you will see that, I wanted to take a chance on my fashion this summer. I have been really boring with my fashion choices and I wanted to get back to the old me, The girl that went outside the box a bit. I enjoyed this dress a lot, it has a lot of layers. It is off the shoulder ( of course) , but it also is Asymmetrical on the bottom and is lace. This dress is the perfect LBD it can be found Amiclubwear.com

similar shoes can be found at Shoedazzle.com

The bag can be found http://lovecortnie.com/clutches/

The off the shoulder look is something I rocked years ago but wasn’t quite sure if I could work it now. I paired both of these dresses with bright shoes to accent the style. I must say I was quite happy with the end result.

Fashion Trends?

Fashion is something that’s always revolving and evolving. Seeing trends from the past now being what’s “in” is always pretty nice, especially if you still have items from that time.

Personal style is one of those things that can be a hit with certain people and a miss with others. My personal style is all over the place. In general… I like what I like. One day I can rock a look that is 50’s inspired the next I will rock a pair one distressed jeans (something I’ve been rocking for yearsssss) and a tee for me, my person style has no definition or description.

As I get older, I notice that I’ve become a little “safer” with my choices. This is a big jump from my looks years ago. I felt like I was becoming slightly boring in my style choices. So, I recently decided to take a chance… I wore something that I don’t usually wear but I liked and was excited to try out.

Wearing this low V neck jumper suit was a HUGE chance for me. I was nervous because I am a legs girl. Not only that, but i have recently gained a few pounds and this jumpsuit left almost nothing to the imagination,lol. I of course used double sided tape. I got this in a medium and it fit perfect!

Life in Gwinnett

Many of my readers know I moved to Georgia almost 2 years ago. I live in Gwinnett county which is a mix of city and county. I am a foodie and I am always looking for a great place to eat. Customer service is always important to me. I’ve tried out many places around my area. One of the place I went to is called Wayback burgers. Being from New York, I never heard of this place so I was intrigued to try it. This place was one of those that I not only enjoyed food wise but, the customer service was amazing.

Wayback Burgers is located at 1030 Old Peachtree Rd NW, Lawrenceville, GA 30043

The OWNER and person who served me is named Wayman. He was amazing, nice and really active. It’s rare to see the owner actually working, it was refreshing

I went for a casual look with this denim jacket, jeans and open toe booties on my visit.I decided to get the double bacon and French fries. It was DELICIOUS! I also decided to get a strawberry banana milk shake which was amazingly good.They serves a variety of things, it was so hard for me to choose!If you’re ever in the area stop by this establishment, tell them Myisha sent you!

Spring Fling- My Love For Maxi Dresses

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. As i tell my preschool class, The flowers start to bloom, and the birds start to sing. I Also love the weather, one of my favorite things about spring is maxi dresses. These dresses are so stylish and comfortable. I love the way they flow and how they cover your whole body but is still sexy.  Maxi dresses are always my go to in the crunch. They are very easy to style. It is all depended upon what the occasion is. You can dress them up with heels and accessories or dress them down with flats.My favorite thing to pair a maxi dress with is a denim jacket. on a nice crisp spring day throwing on a denim jacket not only helps with style but with comfort ( from a possible chill). If the day starts out hot, I will throw a jacket in my bag just incase. This denim jacket was purchased here. I like the distressed look. I also love that its cropped. It fits perfect with this dress.

There are a few things about THIS dress I love. This Maxi dress from Shein  Has POCKETS, and that is what sold me. I love a dress with pockets . I also love the stripe on this dress. They are very eye catching. The material of this dress is light weight and it is great quality.

There is one con about me wearing Maxi dresses. I am 5’3 and a quarter ( that quarter counts), Sometimes it is hard for me to find cute maxi’s to wear with flats that are not dragging on the floor. I have ruined many long Maxi’s because they are too long.

What are your thoughts on Maxi dresses? Do you love them or hate them?

My Baby 21 Y’all!!!

As some of my readers may know, I was a teen mom. I had my son at 17 years of age. Of course being a teen mom made my life that much harder. When I was younger I heard things like, I wasn’t going to make it far in life, My son wasn’t going to make it far in life, I was going to have multiple children by multiple men and I was going to be apart of the system ( the welfare system). One of many things I was told by teachers and my school principal was to drop out of school.  I didn’t listen to the nay sayers, I worked hard for me and my son.

His Big Day, My Big Day!

My son turned 21 a week ago and the feeling is surreal. My baby ( grown man) is my biggest accomplishment. He gave me a reason. He was my motivation. My son and I have such an amazing relationship, I wouldn’t change it for the world. He is my only child and of course I am sitting back like ” so whats next”. I know he will be great, he is already great.  He has pushed passed all the negativity people placed upon us.

Stay focus, Stay Positive!

Our  life wasn’t the easiest, there were defiantly bumps in the road. Along with the bumps there were amazing moments. I was able to obtain  my Masters Degree and my son was able to attend every graduation I had. My son graduated from high school with honors and is  Physics major. We used all of our trials and tribulations to help motive us to be better. We are not were we want to be, but we are not very far off.

Outerwear

I don’t know about you guys but i love outerwear. Thats the ONLY reason i enjoy cooler weather. coats, jackets, shawls, ponchos, you name it, I love it. When it is cold out what you have underneath is barley going to be seen. So why not dress up your outerwear.

This black and white jacket is not only warm but also pretty stylish. Romwe.com has this and other coats and jackets to wear during this crazy weather. I mean lets face it, the weather currently sucks, just when we thought it was getting better BAM cold weather and snow in some places started up all over again.

Black Panther

Unless you have been living under a rock, that has been thrown in the deepest part of the ocean you know that Black Panther came out last week. This movie was a must see for me. I love marvel and I love black people. I purchased my tickets weeks before the movie came out. The anticipation was high.

The movie was full of beautiful melanated  people. The men and women were both georgous. The depiction of Africa was beautiful (#teamWakanda). We are so used to seeing negative depictions that it was refreshing to see one of beauty.

One thing that stood out to me about this movie was the strength of the black woman. Not only were there beautiful women but there were intelligent women(Letitia Wright, on of my favorite characters) and women with immense strength Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira). Women stuck together in order to take down a “bad guy”. This spoke to me in so many different ways.

There are so many levels to this movie. So many things i can write for days about. So many valid (while “fantasy”) points, although this is a “fantasy style movie so many things in the movie are relevant to present day.

I don’t want to spoil it for those who did not see it, but if you didn’t please do. It is jam packed with goodness.   Beauty, Comedy, action, and even a love story. All I can say is… go see it!

Mad About Plaid

2018 Has started off pretty good. Almost the entirety of my year last year was for the birds… so much happened and mind was in a fog. Towards the end of the year things started to look up. I brought in 2018 with a new lease on life and claimed happiness, and I must say… so far so good. Minus me currently being sick ( occupational hazard of working with children, also I’m in the sickest state this year) I can say I am pretty happy.  What I learned from last year is, no matter how bad… it can get better, even if you can’t see it.

I LOVE this set I got from Shein.com love it. The fit is perfect and makes me feel all kinds of sexy. lol I am wearing a Medium.

Leather and/or fur

Hey everyone, so i am back with another collaboration. I love collaborations because they are fun and they allow you to see other peoples interpretations of the theme. For this collaboration we decided on leather and/ or fur. it s the perfect collaboration for winter. Winter can be so devastating on fashion. Sometimes people are un inspired because the weather can be stifling and draining. Dressing up can change your feelings even if the weather still sucks!

You could choose to style leather, fur or both. I am extra ( lol) so i decided to stye both. Here are the looks that we came up with.

Sara (Her IG) did her thing with this beautiful fur vest and leather pants. I love the red it makes everything POP.

Robin (Her IG)looks cute as usual with her fur jacket!

Carryn (Her IG) looks adorable with her leather skirt and fur vest.

Steph ( Her IG is killing it with this look. I am loving her fur jack and leather pants.

Monica is ROCKING those leather pants. I love this look.

And then there is me. I actually threw this look together at the last minute when i was shooting a few look. My son took this oic and I love it!
