Faith vs. Fear!

IMG_3531.JPG
I will take Faith over fear anytime because when you have faith (even as small as a mustard seed), there is no need to worry. You can let go of all doubt because you trust that everything will work out. Believe and you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
Faith conquers fear!

Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. (‭Matthew‬ ‭21‬:‭21‬ NIV)

Happy Sunday! Be blessed!

IMG_3524.JPG
London Fashion Week (LFW) has been in effect since 1984. Today, it is one of the most anticipated city-wide event with the best and brightest names in the industry. The semi-annual (February & September) event is attended by over 5000 press and buyers. Who wouldn’t want to attend a series of catwalk shows by top designers and fashion houses!? (Yes, please!!!). LFW is one of the “Big Four” fashion weeks, alongside New York, Paris and Milan. Not only does LFW showcase some of the world’s leading talent on the runway, it’s also known to showcase some amazing “Street Style” fashion. Here are some of my favourite Street Style looks from LFW…Enjoy!

Think Thursday: Why Not You?!

IMG_3519.JPG
I read this quote by Jillian Michaels and thought: Yeh…why not me!? I couldn’t agree with this more. We are so quick to criticize ourselves over any and everything, instead we should be our own cheerleader/supporter. We often think that we are not deserving of all things that are good but we are. We easily doubt ourselves but we should know that we can do anything we set our minds (and hearts) to. We expect the worst outcome in situations but we have the power to change our mindset to think otherwise.

Don’t let your blessings pass you by. Don’t pass off any more opportunities thinking you’re not ready because you are. Don’t block what God wants for you because it’s meant for you! Go after what your heart desires. Follow your dreams! Ask yourself “Why not me?!”.

Happy Thursday!

Jamie Chung At Origins Global Launch!

Jamie Chung attended the Origins global launch party at Industrial Superstudio in NYC Monday night and looked effortlessly chic in her outfit. She rocked this sexy burgundy romper (similar style available here) with a crisp white tuxedo blazer (check out this version here) over her shoulders. The perfectly shaped blazer was placed just right to show off her plunging V-neck and similar shaped pendant. She topped her look with a pair of classic black pumps (a must-have for every woman!) and a leopard print fold over clutch (I’m loving this cheetah print version here).

Well I’m sure you already know how I feel about her look. What are your thoughts?!

Happy Wednesday!

Talk Tuesday: Set Yourself Free!

IMG_3463.JPG
What is it that you’re afraid of and why?

FEAR can be described as an emotion caused by a threat perceived, which can cause a change in behaviour (like running away, hiding or freezing from traumatic events). FEAR can also be described as False Evidence Appearing Real. Which description best suits your understanding of fear?

When you realize that fear is only a perceived risk that truly isn’t a danger to you at all, you will learn to replace your fears with faith.

When induced by fear…instead of running away, stand still and face your fears. Instead of hiding, make yourself visible and confront your fears. Instead of freezing or looking stunned, remain calm and deal with your fears. Turn your fears into action and overcome them. It may be the very thing needed to set you free. Set yourself free today!

Happy Tuesday!

Commit & Succeed!

Whatever you do, whatever your plans, leave it all in God’s hands. He will work it out for you so that you won’t have to. Commit all things to God and He will do great things in your life.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭3‬ NIV)

Yesterday, the Michael Kors spring/summer show took place at Spring Studios, NY for New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Olivia Munn rocked MK from head to toe in this suntan eyelet jacquard jumpsuit that she paired with black sandals. This look is simple yet chic. No accessories needed! The jumpsuit is a statement in itself and the sweetheart shape neckline oozes femininity. I think I need this one-piece wonder in my closet. What are your thoughts?

Check out some of my favourite looks from the Michael Kors S/S runway show…

Red Carpet: Fashion Rocks!

IMG_3479.JPG
Last night, Fashion Rocks took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY to celebrate two of culture’s biggest influences: music and fashion. Many fashion trends are inspired by music so it’s only right to showcase the powerful relationship between the two. Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, this event featured performances by Jennifer Hudson, JLo, Magic!, Nico & Vinz, Usher among others while showcasing Macy’s fall trends (available here).

Check out some of the red carpet looks:

Jennifer Lopez sizzled the red carpet in this hot plunging, leg bearing black number with gold metallic adornment and matching accessories.

Miranda Lambert rocked this black fitted pantsuit featuring leather panels down the legs and on the blazer lapels. She paired her outfit perfectly with a silver diamanté bra underneath (that bra is everything!).

IMG_3474.JPG
Kat Graham also showed some skin in this black leather bra that she wore underneath a dark blue shimmery blazer and navy dropped-crotch pants with black waistband.

Supermodel Joan Smalls looked fab in this colourful patterned long-sleeved mini-dress with gold accents and strappy sandals.

Talk Tuesday: What’s For You Is For You!

IMG_1165.JPG
Why feel resentment or envy because of someone else’s success or advantage? Especially when you don’t know what that someone has been through to get to where they are. You have not gone through their struggle, pain, heartache or experienced what they have. Their blessings are their own and they probably wouldn’t fit you anyway. It’s ok to appreciate their blessings and use it as motivation to work towards your own but know that you will have to go through your personal journey to get there. Remember that what God has for you is for you alone! Believe that your blessings are on it’s way.

Happy Tuesday!

The Beauty In Everything!

IMG_3466.JPG

There is beauty in everything. Today, take a moment to bask in the beauty that God has made, whether it’s taking in the breeze while walking, enjoying a delicious brunch with friends or better yet, looking in the mirror and seeing the beauty God has created in you. God made all things beautiful. God made you beautiful!

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3‬:‭11‬ NIV)

Sarah Jessica Parker in SJP Collection!

Last Tuesday, Sarah Jessica Parker was out and about in NYC rocking a white long sleeved top with neon orange stripes that she paired with a full buttoned midi-length patterned skirt with white, blue, brown and gold hues. She accessorized her look with silver aviator sunglasses, a stack of bracelets and a neutral handbag. What completed her outfit was the perfect SJP ‘Lady’ Pump in purple (currently retailing at USD $350) from her very own SPJ Collection (Nordstrom Exclusive).

Although I know this look would not suit me at all (I’ll gladly take those pumps though), SJP definitely pulled it off with such style and grace (as usual). What do you think?

Happy Friday!

Think Thursday: Get Your Own Back!

IMG_3465.JPG
You might not always have people around to help you when you’re down and you might not be able to count on people when you need them most. It will be up to you to be your own ‘crutch’ and lift yourself up when you’re down, find your strength when you’re weak, find fullness when you’re empty or find yourself when you’re lost. This is part of your growth and testimony. Allow yourself to be there for YOU, to count on YOU, to trust YOU and to believe in YOU! It’s about time you start looking for yourself anyway. Right!? No one will take better care of you than YOU (and God of course!). It’s not about being selfish. It’s about loving yourself! Get your own back!

I got my own back. Do you have yours?

Happy Thursday!
