“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.” – C. JoyBell C.
For many years, I’ve wanted a crisp and clean all white look for my birthday. Finally I’ve found the perfect pieces to make it happen…
“The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. Maybe they always have been and will be. Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we’ve found each other. And maybe each time, we’ve been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both a goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“I boldly confess that discouragement has no place in me. God’s word is true; the devil is a liar and my circumstances aren’t permanent. With God’s power, I will rise above the situations I face today. I decide. I declare it and I pronounce it to be true. I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name.” – Joel Osteen
“I am in competition with no one. I run my own race. I have no desire to be better than anyone in any way, shape or form. I just aim to improve, to be better than I was before. That’s me and I’m free.” – Unknown
“Just the way it never rains when you have an umbrella, you’ll never run into people when you look fantastic. But go outside in pajamas, and you’ll run into every ex you’ve had” – Tim Gunn
There is nothing better than looking fabulous on a budget. I tend to find some insane deals, especially when I have no intentions of shopping – like the $7 I paid for this sequins H&M skirt (seen here and here) when the original price was $199+tax. Here’s the unbelievable story of these studded shorts:
“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.” – Brian Tracy
You have seen these yellow shorts already in this post where I wore them as a short suit but I’m loving yellow so much this season, it was time for a wardrobe remix. It’s always fun to see the different ways you can wear one item and mix up your wardrobe without having to shop nonstop. Lately, a lot of my posts have been featuring shorts of many styles and lengths (in white here and in blue here) because they are the perfect things to wear in this scorching weather we are having in NY. The Caribbean girl in me is THRILLED!
If you are one of those people petrified to wear shorts, I say take the risk this summer. They don’t need to be super short or super tight; A comfortable length and breathable fabric are what to focus on when choosing the best pair. Move out of your comfort zone. The above quote is for you!

I thought these shorts were so cute and different (They have a coral and black waistband) when I first spotted them at Forever 21. I decided to leave them because I already have white shorts. A few weeks later, I went to another F21 store and they were the first thing I saw. The fashion gods were OBVIOUSLY telling me that at just $17.80, it would be a crime NOT to get them. So yeah! To the register I went. Lol!
