Closet Edition: Shoes!

 
You should know (by now) how I feel about shoes…I love them all!…from heels to flats, sandals to runners, open toe to closed toe, nudes to black, prints to solids, you name it…so I thought I’d dedicate a post just for that…shoes!  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The Lord Is My…!

  
I thought I’d share one of my fave verses and I hope it encourages you as much as it has for me. 

When I am weak, He is my rock! When I am at harm, He is my fortress! When I am in need, He is my deliverer! When I am lost, He is my stronghold in whom I take refuge! When I am attacked, He is my shield, the glory of my salvation and my high tower! He is my God! 

Happy Sunday! Be blessed! ❤️xo

Tony A. Gaskins – Real Love Tour Montreal!

  
After Toronto, Los Angeles, Miami, Jacksonville and Tampa, the “Expert” Tony A. Gaskins, certified in marital relations life coach and speaker, will be in Montreal on Saturday, July 18th as part of his anticipated The Real Love Tour. The Bonaventure Hotel (900 Rue de la Gauchetière O, H5A 1E4) will host this interactive conference which is designed to open a dialogue on seeking and maintaining healthy relationships. You don’t want to miss out on this event!

Tony A. Gaskins is one of the most sought-after motivational speakers in the United States. Followed by millions on social media, he devotes himself to his seminars and lectures on different subjects such as love, business, success and self-development. He was featured on many television programs including “Tyra Banks Show” and famous “Oprah Winfrey Show”, where he shared his troubled past in the world of drugs and violence. He is also the author of several books, a professional life coach (to many NFL and NBA athletes), a relationship consultant and producer. Most importantly, he is a husband and father. 

On July 18, men and women, couples and singles are invited to benefit from Gaskins’ expert advice on how to remain happily married or on how to invest the work necessary to meet the ideal partner. 

“We live in a society where the divorce rate and the number of singles is rising steadily. By inviting a renowned expert from the United States, we, in Montreal will be exposed to a perspective from a different culture which will enrich our knowledge.” said Golda Simon, President and Founder of Gold Diva Events

Considering that nearly 41% of Canadian marriages end in divorce and that many people remain single despite themselves, this seminar is pertinent to our current society and definitely worth attending. Translation services will be made available. 

TICKETS range from $ 30 – $ 60 | $ 100 VIP Cocktail

If you can’t make it in person, there will also be a Live Webcast for only $17

Get your tickets here and for more on this event, please visit www.reallovetourmontreal.com.

Talk Tuesday: Live A Life In Love!

 
Life is so much more exciting with love. Love gives you hope, it makes you dream, it brings joy, happiness and growth. Love gives life to the lifeless. With love, life will never be dull.

Be Still…

  
When things may not go your way, when you are afraid or when you feel at the lowest of lows, you only need to be still and to open your heart to God. By letting Him in, He will bring deliverance in your life. Stand firm and see His wonderful works manifested in you. Be still. God is in control. 

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (‭Exodus‬ ‭14‬:‭14‬ NIV)

Street Style: The Shirt Dress! 

 The shirt dress is an unexpectedly sexy item that is often overlooked. Not sure why though?! It’s a stand alone piece that…well…stands out (if styled correctly of course). The best part is that you most likely already own this item in your closet. Just look for an oversized blouse or simply borrow from his closet. His shirt can be your perfect shirt dress. It may even look better on you! Lol. Rock it different ways from an undoubtedly sexy look to a more casual one. Looking for ideas?! Here are some inspirational boards featuring the shirt dress.

I’m loving the maxi length shirt dress in white. I think I need that in my closet. It’s so moi   Will you be rocking the shirt dress this season?

Happy Friday! Have a lovely weekend! ❤️xo 

Talk Tuesday: Never Give Up On Your Dreams! 

 
Last week, I pinned this powerful quote from Earl Nightingale that really resonated with me that I had to share…

Time will pass regardless of what you do in life so why not make the best of it by pursuing your dreams. Everyday is a gift so when you wake up to see another day, you are one day closer to achieving your dreams. Don’t give up and take the time you need to accomplish your dreams. No one said it will be easy but I promise it will be worth it. Never give up on your dreams!

Let God Lead You!

 
No one knows you better than God does. He knows your past, present and future. He knows your coming and your going. He knows your heart. He knows what you’re thinking. He knows you better than you know yourself so why not trust in Him to lead you to where He wants you to go. I bet it’s far better & greater than anywhere you can ever imagine. Let God lead you in the way everlasting!  

Happy Sunday! ❤️xo

Think Thursday: Sisterhood! 

 
Sisterhood is a special bond between two or more women (not always blood-related) who honour, respect and love each other. Well, I happen to have a blood-sister who fits that description whom I want to recognize today, not only because it’s her birthday but also for her constant care, generosity, trust, open heart, time and unconditional love. 

God knew what He was doing when He picked you as my big sister. He knew you and I would create the perfect sisterhood

I thank God for you and for blessing you with another year. May He grant your heart’s desires. Happy birthday!

Talk Tuesday: Love Outlives Us All!

 
I love this quote by R. Queen that I just had to share. It serves as a reminder that life is just too short to let love pass you by. If you love something, love it with all of your heart & soul. Go after what you love, fight for it and never let it go or take it for granted. Say it, show it and repeat. 

Love outlives is all! 

Happy Tuesday! ❤️xo

 

You Will Bend But Never Break!

 

God brings you through things but He will never give you more than you can take. He knows your strength better than you will ever know and with Him by your side, who can be against you right?!…No one! God knows your limits and He will allow you to bend further than you can ever imagine. You may not know that you are more flexible than a rubber band but you are. Although rubber bands can break when overstretched or over time, trust in God and you will never break. 

You will bend but never break!
