Chill Mode

A typical day consists of me waking up at 6:00 AM, leaving the house by 7:15 AM to make it work on time in Houston traffic. Work from 8:00 AM and get off of work at 4:30PM. Drive home to change make it to gym by 6:00 PM. Leave the gym around 8:00 PM, get home and try to find something healthy to eat. Take a shower, work on material for the LNE Show (edit audio, pictures, write a blog etc.). To close out the night I will straighten the house up a bit, pack my lunch for the next day, and tame my hair so that its presentable when I wake up. After all of this I make it to bed around   11:30 PM if I am lucky.

Anyone else been there?

After a whole week of ripping and running I typically get a invites to have dinner with friends or hangout on the weekends. To be honest sometimes I just don’t feel like getting “snatched”, there are times when I  want to look cute without having to put on Spanx, tons of make-up, high heels or do my hair. 

Here I used simple pieces that give me the “put together” look without causing extreme discomfort and didn’t break the bank.

I have on a pair of jeans and a faux leather jacket from Forever 21. My tennis shoes came from Boohoo (they were on sale online for $15.00—winning). I put on some simple accessories that can be purchased anywhere, the watch and bracelets were less than $8.00, they were purchased through Alixpress. All together this outfit cost me about $65.00 (Not bad for sturdy pieces that you can switch up to make new outfits).

Episode_034 Common Sense: Do You Have Any?

What’s seems “common” is not always common to people we know. It’s amazing how people get lessons from God everyday and fail to soak in what he has been trying to teach them. Take a few seconds to look back over your life and reflect on how many times God placed you in the same type of situation for you to learn something… did you chuckle? Check out this week’s episode as we dig into some of the lessons we have had to repeat and the common knowledge we learned.

Don’t Get It Twisted: Knowing Your Real Purpose

2018 has brought on a lot of excitement, people are inspired to start new business ventures, workout routines, marriages, vacation planning, financial planning….. you name it and someone has planned for it.  I personally think that it is good to have ambition and drive to become a more affluent, but sometimes I think we have lost our real purpose in the mix of trying to gain more.

I know this is going to sound harsh or maybe even hurt some feelings but our whole purpose on earth is not to “start a business or get more money”; our purpose on this earth is to bring more people to Christ. THAT’S IT.  God created you to reach people and share how he has transformed our minds, hearts and spirits.  Don’t get me wrong, God blesses us with material things to make life a bit more comfortable for us, he is that generous. He doesn’t have to give us any thing but he does ( a little sweet with the bitter). 

Our joy should come from our connection to him and his goodness, not a connected to his blessings.

  1. What Do Your Actions Say About You?
  • When people interact with you do they see Christ? Do they see that you were sent her to bring them closer to the kingdom? 

I struggled with this for a long time, I would say that I loved God but I would turn around and cuss someone out like it was no tomorrow. Every other word out of my mouth was a curse word, I mean I had NO filter. I had to ask God to help me with this and he did. It took some time and practice but he stepped in when I gave my best shot.  I remember one time Christina and I created a “swear jar” where we would hold each other accountable for cursing….lol. I laugh because we struggled with keeping up with it but now anytime I get ready to fix my lips to curse I either stop myself or quickly correct the word and apologize for letting it come out of my mouth. Cursing is embarrassing for me now.

2. Are You Giving People Room To Doubt God?

  • Are you “wishy washy”? You know what I mean, you say you love the Lord but you have a different man or women at your house all the time. Or you are always getting “wasted” but turn around and post a bible verse on your Instagram page. To people who are truly lost you are sending mixed signals, to them they have no reason to serve the God you serve.

You know I am not going to talk about something I haven’t done.  I remember I used to serve on the meet and greet ministry at my church and I would turn around and go straight to happy hour with my friends right after service. Don’t judge me, I was trying to find my way.  I found myself serving in church but still doing things that I knew was wrong.  I would go to happy hour through out the week with my co-workers but invite them to my church for events and functions (smh)… I wondered why they never came… now I know.  I wasn’t setting an example for them, why on earth would they follow a hypocrite?

Take some time to reflect on the things that trip you up and keep you from being the example God needs you to be. Maybe your hangups aren’t public but they are things you struggle with in private… you know what I am talking about….(side eye)

Any who I love you all and I pray that it was as insightful to you as it was to me.

All Hats Are Off

I love all black everything, who doesn’t have black in their wardrobe.  Sometimes you may want to kick it up a notch and add a little “salt bae” in your life.  Here I took your typical all black skinnies and top and paired it with some black booties, a cheap tan coat and threw on a hat (why not).  You can add small accessories without over doing it.  Throw on some hoop earrings (my favorite), pull back a slick pony and there you go!!!

Episode_033 New Year, New Me “Cliche”

Every new year people come up with these resolutions that are supposed to be “life changing” and over night they become a new person. Reality is most people bring new ideas into the new year but fail to address the “bad habits” that kept them from achieving their goals the previous year. We will use this analogy, you can’t come home from work and put on perfume and a fresh set a clothes without showering and cleaning up the dirt you picked up. The smell will eventually seep past the “mask” you used to cover the uncleanliness. Check out this week to get a better understanding of making a heart and mind changes versus temporary resolutions.
