Life Update: Part 2

Devos, lifestyle

Many of you have been wondering why I haven’t moved as I said I would have by now. Although there are multiple variables in this equation, there is one major reason for the slight adjustment of my plans. At first, I hesitated to even say what I am about to express because I didn’t want to be embarrassed, I didn’t want to feel as if I could not meet deadlines, and among a plethora of other thoughts, I did not want to appear weak. But I know I have to because it is my responsibility to help others out in the same situation I am in or will be in.

About two months ago, I had a meeting with my dear big brother/mentor/pastor/spiritual father. As I met with him, he was excited to hear me step out on faith but he also wanted to help me by guiding me with wisdom. So, what did he do? He gave me homework that included writing my vision, goals, and practical steps to achieve them.

I did my homework and a few weeks later, I presented the assignment to him. I was nervous but at the same time, I rested assured in what God had given me to accomplish in NYC. Needless to say the meeting was successful but it also gave me a different perspective.

My leader believed I should give my move a little more time before I jumped out on faith due to multiple factors not being solid YET. I say YET because they were/are being worked on and the answers have not been a solid YES. God is not a God of confusion (1 Cor. 14:33), and lowkey I was confused about some decisions I needed to make. Like a good leader, he did NOT force me to make the decision, but he confidently suggested that going to New York for two weeks would be a great time to EXPLORE the land to see what it was like, to see the people, the strongholds, the issues, the neighborhoods, the transportation, and everything in between.

Numbers 13:17-20

Then Moses sent them to spy (explore, scout) out the land of Canaan, and said to them, “Go up this way into the South, and go up to the mountains, and see what the land is like: whether the people who dwell in it are strong or weak, few or many; whether the land they dwell in is good or bad; whether the cities they inhabit are like camps or strongholds; whether the land is rich or poor; and whether there are forests there or not. Be of good courage. And bring some of the fruit of the land.” Now the time was the season of the first ripe grapes.

As soon as I got home, I prayed. But deep in my heart, I knew that this was the best decision for NOW. I took a couple of days and made my decision. And this decision gave me courage. I believe I would have added so much pressure to my life I would have been forced to get a side hustle to earn money, to find a home because hotels are oh so expensive, to make friendships happen, etc. Pressure is good in the right context; but this would have been too much too soon. Who knows what else could have happened if I would have moved on October 28th foreal!? We will never know.

Wow. What a journey it’s been so far! Honestly, I have learned so many things from being in the middle of this leap of faith. The main thing I have learned is to be led by God but also consult with leaders you TRUST. The Word says in Hebrews 13:17 to “Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit.” It is not because they rule your life; it is because their responsibility is to watch over your souls. Even if they make a mistake, they are accountable to God and God can restore it all. God honors submission/obedience. And truly, I would rather submit to someone whom I believe hears from God than to go out on a whim and pretend like I know what I am doing. Yes, it sucks to not be in the city right now, BUT I am thankful for leadership that cares about me and my future.

I encourage you to reach out to the people whom know your journey, your heart, and have your best interest in every aspect of life. Also, time is KEY but don’t feel pressured by it. I know I was. My mind has changed a little and I now use deadlines as markers to guide me along the right path. OH yea. Before I forget, know that it is okay if you do not meet a deadline.

Your purpose is still YOUR PURPOSE.

Your calling will not be taken back (Rom. 11:29); God is bigger than our plans and His will ALWAYS prevails (Prov. 19:21). If you have been stuck or feel like there is a delay, know that God is literally working it all out because He cares about it all (Rom. 8:28). Focus on HIM, not the task. HE is our reward (Gen. 15:1). And will always be.

Life Update: in NYC


Hello everyone. As many of you know, at the end of August I announced that I would be moving to New York City on October 28th. Guess what?? I am HERE!!! WOO HOO! I cannot believe I am in the place I will call home VERY SOON!

*car break sound effect*

You might me wondering, what do you mean very soon? Well…. Let me catch you up on some things.

I have always wanted to move to the city. Since I began to be interested in fashion, around my 9th grade year of high school, I was interested in this big city. The fashion, for the most part, but also the hype of why so many people wanted to live here. So… as I began to truly dedicate my life to Christ, God began to show me more than just the city; He showed me purpose for the city.

Processed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with b1 preset

My first ambition was to come and look good. Show my fashion sense and just live here because it was the thing to do. Reflecting on this motive, I see how selfish and lowly I was thinking. I was thinking from a worldly perspective instead of a heavenly perspective. Through seasons of maturing in my faith, my confidence, and in serving others, I have been molded for a greater purpose than just myself—to build God’s kingdom in the fashion industry.

Just like you, I have many questions on how it is all going to come together, on how the resources are going to come, on which people to connect with to get things done, etc… BUT the bottom line is that I am willing to do what it takes to move forward in my life and to help others do the same. I want the industry to see Jesus in a way they have never seen it. Whether I get rejected or accepted, my conviction of Jesus being Lord of all will remain.

I was blessed to have two of my best friends come transition me in this trip and I am thankful they are friends that are willing to sacrifice for me.

Moving on kids…

Regardless, I have not made the transition to NYC yet. But my hope and dreams are still unshakable. I will be back soon and cannot wait.

I pray this post encourages people who want to move, who want to be entrepreneurs, who are afraid of what people will think, who do not know how your plans are going to workout. Know that it is okay to be at that place and that things will work out. Be diligent and faithful with what you have, and the Lord will add the increase. 

Love you guys!

Trend: The Pleated Skirt


Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

When it comes to style, I am not much of a “girly-girl.” I love things with edge, that display that I don’t play–lol yet I love to throw slight hints of me being delicate and kind. Feminine pieces are great but I love to mix such items with unexpected hints of…ME.

I have seen a lot of my favorite bloggers and magazines displaying the pleated skirt in such lady-like ways that I decided to wear one in slightly two different ways. Of course I am a lady, but I have to express this femininity in my uniqueness.

Pleats and Sneaks

Processed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 preset

The first way I wore the pleated skirt is with sneakers. (I found this skirt at my local Salvation Army Thrift Store.) I paired it with an old cargo bomber I had traded in at Urban Cheapskate and a white camisole to keep things neutral and airy, since it was hot as ever that afternoon.

I serve at my awesome local church (Transformation Church) in our media department, so being behind the scenes of photography and social media always has me on the move. This means that comfort, especially on my feet, matters. I tried the outfit on to make sure I did not look like a complete mess the previous night, even though 95% of the time I do not ever plan my outfits (I just wing them). Needless to day, I really enjoyed this look and plan on wearing my sneakers with another thrifted skirt I got for colder days. 😉

Pleats and Studs

The second way I wore this skirt, in which I think is my favorite, is with my studded heels. I purchased these online at Forever21, and yes they are heavy and can be uncomfortable after wearing them over 5 hours BUT cmon, they are dope!

Can we talk about slayage? LOL. Lowkey when I saw these pictures, I took a second look because my hair was unplanned, I was sweating, and my feet were throbbing after such a long day. Shoutout to my beautiful photographer that happens to be one of my best friends, Ryanne G.

Wearing heels and walking everywhere is not the most comfortable. For Day 2, I would still wear neutrals, preferably warmer tones, and sneakers. The perfect balance of classy, urban, and sporty was what I was going for. I love to mix things around and capture someone’s eye with the most unexpected attire.

Details: trench from F21, tee dress from Beau and Arrow, sneakers by Adidas X Stella McCartney.

Also, may I mention how obsessed I am with these Adidas X Stella McCartney sneakers? They are the perfect pair of comfortable and luxurious sneakers. I purchased mine at

Comfort is everything. Invest in sleek and comfortable footwear that will also make a statement.

Who Are You?


In a world were we can easily crave to fit in, it has become the norm to follow after someone else and imitate what they wear, what they do, and essentially become who they are. Last night, I was spending time in the word of God and I heard the Holy Spirit ask, Who Are You? It caught me off guard because He is usually affirming who I am, and not asking me who I am. And to my surprise, instead of quoting scripture, I thought about what I did and not really who I was created to be.

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

This made me listen to a sermon about courage, and in return, I can see that I will be am courageous. Every year I make it a priority to analyze evident patterns that help me see who I am. In example, last year I learned that I am very emotional but also persevering. This year, I am observing that I am moldable and willing. How can I choose these specific words to describe who I am? They come from the source I am taking the time to compare myself to—Jesus and His word.

Processed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 preset

So I pose this question, who are you? Not what do you do, but who are you? Do you know who you are? Are you still trying to figure it out? That is totally okay. There are many things I have yet to uncover about myself, but I have an idea of who I am because of Whose I am. I want to encourage you to take the time to list things that are evident in your life that describe who you are. Set some time alone for yourself without distractions and begin to think of patterns or things you naturally expose to the world. Write it down. This list can serve as an affirmation list when trials come against you, when people label you, and when you are discouraged.

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

I pray this helps you see yourself the way God sees you. He created you in a specific and unique way that He loves and enjoys. While there are worldly standards that man makes and attempts to achieve, God has already set in stone who we are. His standard is the only one worth comparing ourselves to.

And yet, O LORD, you are our Father.

We are the clay, and you are the potter.

We all are formed by your hand.

– Isaiah 64:8

Trend: Off-Shoulder


Trends come and go. And when they come, they come strong. One of the trends (more of an essential for me) that I absolutely love is the off-shoulder ‘trend.’ It is such a beautiful and elegant design that allows people, like myself, that are modest and fashionable to show some skin in a tasteful way. I have personal standards I live by and one of them is not too much skin.

“How you measure when too much is too much,” you may ask? It goes back to my relationship with God, my belief of self-respect, and presenting yourself the way you want to be approached.

Summer Fashion Inspiration


 This might sound surprising to many of you who know me, but recently I have been very uninspired in my closet. :/

So what does a girl like me do? I take a break for a short time, and then after recuperating, I browse through my favorite blogger’s IG’s. I do not strictly copy piece by piece on what they wear; but I do like to see what they wear, how they deliver their personal message, and then try things they do with my own twist.

In example, Kyrzayda’s mini skirt is cute—but not my style. Instead of using a skirt, I could use jeans or a denim dress with my duster, and any of the sneakers I have.



Style is more of YOUR perspective than what you are wearing.

It is an internal liking that is displayed externally. Have fun with it! And do not be afraid to make mistakes. lol

Speaking of mistakes… I am sharing my 5 least favorite trends based on them not being my personal style OR not fitting my body type very soon. Both matter and should be considered when trying new trends.

Until the next post, here are some of my fave outfits these gals have been wearing:
