Flatforms are to Summer what UGGs are to Winter

Flatforms are to Summer what UGGs are to Winter

I hate flatforms. I loathe them with a passion. They are seriously the ugliest shoes of the summer. I always SMFH (shake my fly head) when I see a chick destroy a cute outfit with hideous flatforms. They just make the outfit look lazy in the same way UGGs make leggings and an oversized sweater look whack. Whereas a pair…

#GYMFLOW: Derek Lam X Athleta

I normally go from the gym to Trader Joe’s. I take kickboxing and then I’m running errands. My workout clothes must work for the gym and beyond. Enter Derek Lam’s collaboration with Athleta, Derek Lam 10C Athleta. It’s a 37-piece line, that launches next month, and includes washable (YASS!) leather shorts and jogging pants, silky color-block tanks and a slick…

It’s All About Perspective

It’s All About Perspective

It’s no secret that as I build my empire I work at a restaurant. It is ridiculously challenging because I’m really not for manual labor; I mean I rock stiletto nails! Before walking into work I always talk to God about a few things. I ask Him to give me patience when dealing with my co-workers, I ask Him to…

When you face a struggle, a disappointment or storm, let one of the first things you say be: “God help me find the treasure in my trial. -Joyce Meyer

God Is My Provider

I have learned that you can either try to do everything yourself and become burnt out, or you can rest assured that God will give you exactly what you need- when you need it. It’s all about faith and perspective. I work at a restaurant where the majority of the seating is outdoors. Making good money depends on where the…

Sisterly Advice from Heather Lindsey

Stop anticipating what hasn’t happen in fear. Instead, simply believe the best. Why is it that we put more faith in things NOT working out vs. things working out? Place your trust in God, HE provides, leads, comforts, and takes care of you.. if you let Him. He flows through faith, not fear.  – Heather

Spiritual Growth Ain’t Pretty

Spiritual Growth Ain’t Pretty

You know, some people want change but don’t want to actually change. Some people want God to place them in high places but can’t handle where they are currently. Some don’t understand that in order to get where you want to go, you first have to become the person God wants you to be. If you aren’t changing, you aren’t…

I’m Waiting For Deliverance At The Doe

Sometimes we are so deep in mess that we can’t see the little glimpses of hope showing that God is bringing us out. We tend to summarize our desperation and then invite others to our pity party. We complain and whine the entire time we are in a trial; not realizing that if God is going to use us, we…

Jesus Is My Homeboy

What Does It Mean To Have a Friend in Jesus? I’ll admit I don’t have a lot of friends. I like to keep my circle tight. I have learned that sometimes to be great, you may have to be alone. While I love my friends, they aren’t always accessible. I get it, we’re getting older and my friends with families…

Sisterly Advice from Heather Lindsey

When a man is interested in you, he should first prayerfully consider the cost, then talk to you to see if you’re on the same page with vision & purpose and THEN pursue you with the intent to marry. Don’t let some man step to you like he’s “picking up a chick.” You aren’t an animal. You are beautifully &…
