The Struggles Of Blogging

This post may have some sponsored links, but all opinions are that of my own.If you’re like me and you have a demanding job ( preschool Teacher), blogging often takes a back seat. With the ever so demanding world of blogging/vlogging it can get discouraging. It has taken me quite a while to take my blogging seriously. A part of me is happy for slowly dipping my toes in one by one before jumping in.

I have been going through a lot in life and blogging/vlogging had been my outfit. It has been therapeutic. My love for fashion and education has been revived and having an outlet to share it has been great. I have finally figured out some sort of schedule ( i think, lol) and finally found a consistent photographer ( i hope, lol), which means i don’t have to take my own pics anymore.

I absolutely give it to those people who blog/vlog daily or on a very consistent basis. One day i have hopes one getting there. For those who think blogging/vlogging is easy… you’re absolutely WRONG! I have taken series of photos and when it was all said and done, after all the hard work none were suitable, either my face was off, my body was off, the light was off, something was off. Ive taken a but of pics and a shot videos to fine my SD won’t read… It has been frustrating but that’s a part of life.I still have more work to to and more material to get to continue to improve, but slow and steady progress.

Take a chance

My love for fashion is deeper than the simple items put together. As I’ve mentioned before in previous post, fashion is an art from. It’s a way to express yourself without saying a word.

Generally speaking I’m very shy. People tend to mix that up for me being mean, standoff is or stuck up. I am none of the above. It’s rare that I will start a conversation (although in my older years I have done so more and more).

My awkward shyness has often been a down fall. Even when my business was up and running and I would get complimented on things that could be found in my boutique I wouldn’t self promote. While my business was doing well it could have been doing much better (I closed due to my move and will be reopening very soon).

My bold statements usually comes in the form of fashion. Fashion speaks for me. It gives me a voice. I take time to carefully think about what I want to put together. No thought goes into what others will think as I am picking it out, but after I wonder how ppl will take it in. Most times it’s hit but I have had my misses.

This is one of my favorite looks, it’s bold, it’s daring, it’s me. When I put this look on I laughed think. People are going to think I’m crazy. Black girl, white thigh highs??? I didn’t care because as I slowly put it together I loved it. I mean fashion is all about taking chances. So put on the outfit you love but your not sure if everyone else will. You may be surprised.

I don’t really have many outfit deets.

I purchased these thigh high stockings from walmart.com

My shoes are from shoedazzle.com

Skirt was from Target.com years ago when Peter Pilotto had a line there.

Sponges

Children are sponges. There is no limit to the information that they take in, before even being born the things you surround yourself with can help your baby. Singing, reading and talking to your baby has proven to be very helpful in language development. As parents it is important to watch what you day around children. It is equally as important to pay attention to how you say things. Pronouncing things the accurate way proves to be extremely helpful.

Talking “baby talk” may sound cute but it actually hinders a child’s speech. I have come across so many children that have a hard time pronouncing words because they are still taking “baby like”. More and more children are needing to take speech.

As adorable as it may sound for your little one to mis-pronounce a work correcting then is more helpful to the in the long run. make sure you are eye to eye with the child, have them watch your mouth and repeat you, be as clear as possible so they can see and hear the correct way to say it.

Language development in children starts at a very young age, The more you talk to them the better their language development will be.

Olive Fashion

I have come to the conclusion that I am OBSESSED with Olive for the fall. One day I was looking in my closet and I came upon a bunch of olive items. It was not only my clothing but shoes as well. After seeing this i decided to do a series on my love for olive. I picked FIVE yes five looks that I loved and will be blogging about them. All these looks are super inexpensive and easy to put together (even with other colors). I start this series off  With this sweater dress.

This item can be worn as a dress or a sweater. I paired it with some pattern stocking and black sorts ( underneath). I added some lace up boots to bring this look together. This look can be easily done with an over sized sweater, some leggings and tall boots.

To add some of my on personal style i threw on this leopard belt and an off color ( off being that it doesn’t “match”) purse.This is one of my favorite comfortable fall looks.

Sweater Weather

This post may have sponsored links but the opinions are all that of my own.

The season is upon us… it’s finally feeling like fall and winter is tapping on the door. One of the best and comfy pieces you should have for your fall/winter wardrobe are sweaters. Lots and lots of sweaters. I have complied a small list of what I think are must have sweaters. You can find them all at Shein.com

My first pick is this beautiful Golden sweater with black and white stripes. It is the most casual one of my pics.. You can rock this with some dark demin skinny jeans and riding boots. Find it here.

My next pic is the super adorable red  smock sweatshirt. This can be paired with a pencil skirt, straight leg pants and/or skinny leg jeans.  you can find it Find it here.

Now we all now I am not a big fan of pink, but when i saw this sweater i was in love, it also comes in4 other colors. It is so girly and cute. I would pair this with a leather mini or pencil skirt. You can find it Here

My next choice is this seemly simple style sweater with a twist. The bow on the front of this sweater gives it that extra push to set it apart from a simple sweater. Find it Here

Last but definitely not least this area fur and blog sweater…. I mean, need I say more? This swearer has my name written cllllll over it. you can find it Here

Find these and so many other beautiful sweaters at Shen.com

Date Night

(me @Mys_elegance)

What does date night mean to you? For some ( including me) date night is a romantic night out with their sweetie. This can be a nice dinner and a fancy restaurant, a drink ( or two or three) at a bar you don’t usually visit, a lounge, or even a movie.

(Celeste @crownsbyceleste)

Some date night are spent with the family, you, your sweetie and  the children may go out to do something that satisfies everyone ( well maybe not everyone, but almost everyone).(Stephanie @stephaniegivesyoulife)

What makes date night different from any other day/night you spend time with your loved ones? For me date night is about spending that quality time disconnected from everyone else and connected to my significant other. For some the same rules apply but with more than their significant other but with their family.

(Danielle @addidaswoman)

Your attire will be dictated by where you go. Sometimes you want to get all dolled up to go to  nice dinner or lounge. Other times you dress down to go bowling or to catch a movie.

(Janelle @quincysgirl77)

I believe date night ( specifically with your significant other) is extremely important. We live in an age where people are so connect to their phones that they do not get the opportunity to connect with their person. For me 2 times a months is the minimum. Do you have a date night?  What are your favorite things to do for date night?(Robin @robinavidor)

Some ladies and I decided to come together and show off our date night looks. I’ve added everyone’s Instagram handle incase you want to see more of their wonderful looks.
