August is my favourite month of the year. Not only because I love mid-summer weather but also for the simple reason that I love celebrating special events like birthdays…wink wink (especially today, Happy Birthday Moon!). It’s the perfect time to reflect and be thankful for everything that God has done and to look forward to the great promises that He has planned. So to all of my Leos and Virgos…Happy Birthday!

In Fashion: Actress Zoe Saldana fronts the cover of FASHION Magazine‘s August 2014 issue and looking absolutely stunning in Julien Macdonald. I’m looking forward to her starring role in the Nina Simone biopic.
