Wayyy back in the day, overalls were worn as a protective overgarment in a work environment. It wasn’t until the ’60s that both sexes started rocking them in a more fashionable way, not only in denim but in different colors, patterns and with loose or unfastened straps.
This fashion trend peaked in the ’70s, and again in the late ’90s. That was when I included a pair into my wardrobe. I loved wearing them with crop tops (Aaliyah style) and sneakers…It always use to make me feel brand new. LOL
Although overalls have been creeping up the fashion market since last year, I’m still not sure if I will re-introduce them in my life but looking at these fashionistas strutting their “all-over” overalls makes me think twice…

So…What do you think? Are overalls a yay or nay for Spring 2014?
One of the hardest lessons in life is figuring out what your purpose is. Some are fortunate enough to walk right into it while others struggle with the limitless possibilities of what it could be. One thing is for sure, we were all put here for a reason.
Listen to your heart. Follow your dreams. Pursue what you are passionate about. Do what you have set your mind to do. If it fails, try and try again! After all, you won’t know unless you try.
Whether you are walking in your purpose or still trying to figure out what that is, get ready to make YOUR dent in the universe. Are you ready?
He is not here. HE has RISEN! Just as He said…Matthew 28:6
Happy Easter to you and yours!
One of the reasons why I’m loving the rolled jeans look is that you can create that look with any denim…distressed, boyfriend, skinny…you name it!
Another fab reason is to show off your new pair of sexy stilettos or even a cute pair of flats.
The cherry on top: If you have jeans that are a-tad too long, forget about hemming them and just start rolling (super saver tip! 😉).
Need some inspiration? Here’s some of my fave “rolled jeans” looks:

How do you rock your jeans?

I pray that you all have a happy Good Friday and a wonderful weekend filled with blessings and thankfulness.
If you are ever in the downtown Montreal-Quebec area, a great “foodie” place to check out is Cacao 70. This resto is definitely one of my go-to’s for satisfying my sweet cravings (which is ALL the time…LOL).
Cocoa 70 is a breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, dessert, and chocolate bar with two locations at 2087 Ste. Catherine West or 1310 Ste. Catherine East, Montreal, Quebec.
I’m so thankful to my Rey for introducing me to this hot spot.

Will you be going?
Every day is a blessing from God.
As we wake this morning, let our minds be refreshed, our spirits cleansed and our hearts open to receive all of the great things this day has in store for us.
This is a new day! Let’s be glad and rejoice in it!
Will you embrace this day with open arms?
I am persuaded that NOTHING can tear us from the love of God. His love for us is so great that not even death, life, angels, principalities, powers, things present, things to come, height, depth nor any other creature can separate us from His love.
Don’t you know that you are LOVED just the way you are?

A raincoat or slicker is a must in everyone’s closet (especially this month where it calls for showers☔️on most days). It’s THE perfect item for April showers.
How so? Well…
1- It’s water-resistant or waterproof so it protects the body from rain.
2- It’s normally made of Gore-Tex or Tyvek and coated nylons which are breathable fabrics.
3- It comes in so many different colors, shapes and sizes, you’ll have lots of options to choose from.
I usually stick to neutral colors but that’s only because I love to add a pop of color via accessories like an umbrella or wellies.
Here are some of my faves…
London Fog Women’s Zina Trench Rain Coat
Nautica Women’s Rain Coat
Burberry London Women’s Short Cotton Rain Coat
Burberry London Long Trench Coat (Lambskin Leather left, Cotton Gabardine right)

It’s simple….Life is so much better if you choose to be positive. When you have a negative attitude, you set limits to your life. So why not focus on the possibilities instead of the problems?.
There is silver lining in every cloud.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. You may not be able to see it but if you continue to push through and work at it while keeping faith, God promises victory at the end of the tunnel. Go towards the light!

There may be times when we compare our situation to others but one important factor to remember is that we don’t know what the other person has gone through to get to where they are. Their blessings are for them and your blessings are for you. Don’t cheat yourself from receiving what’s faithfully yours.
Keep this in mind…”Your journey is not my journey and my journey is not yours”.
