Pink and Green

This is the first time I've done color blocking like this. I'm loving a lot of the unlikely color combos that are hitting the fashion world. I will definitely be trying more color combos soon. This picture was taken while I was in Atlanta for a women in ministry conference. It was such a refreshing time in His prescence. Serving God is definitely worth it and He is real.
Which Color combos will you be rocking this spring? I'm looking to pair Navy Blue with Green, Orange with Grey and Yellow with Navy Blue.

Eye Cream Anyone?

Just thought I'd do a mini beauty post on eye care and the use of eye cream. Eye cream is one product a lot of people don't use because some just don't see the need. Here are some benefits of using eye cream:
1. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
2. Reduces undereye shadows
3. Lifts droopy lids
4. Reduces Crow feet
5. Reduces Bags
6. Prevents all of the above
If you have any of the above problems or want to prevent them all, using eyecream on a daily basis will help.
How to apply:
After washing your face (I believe you wash your face every morning and at night with a facial cleanser), apply eye cream to under eye area and on eyelids with your ring finger. Rub in gently. Then apply your other products.

I'm not going to end this post without telling you that AVON sells all kinds of eye creams to meet different needs and at different price points. See here for some choices.

Sharpen Your Skills

The other day I went online to search for how to cook Nigerian stew. I've been cooking this for years and I don't think I do a bad job but I've tasted better so I searched online to see how I could make better stews. I stumbled upon a blog featuring Nigerian dishes. So I tried one of the recipes...I think it turned out great. I use a cookbook or an online recipe almost everyday when cooking just so I can serve my family something different (I don't love cooking by the way). It may seem weird to others when they see you learning how to do something you've always done before but that's the secret to success.  If you find someone really good at something, it's most likely they spend everday time sharpening their skills.

In my church, the way some of our praise songs go is to sing many songs together in one stretch. This is something I'm still not very good at. There's one particular guy in the choir who does it effortlessly. I thought he had the gift so that's why he does it so well. But one day I saw him writing down a list of songs from an archive he had created.... That's the secret. So now I have an archive of songs in my Blackberry.

So the lesson here is that you need to sharpen your skills even though you've been using that talent or being at that job or marriage for years. A few years ago, I started going online to see how to really wear my clothes- yes I've been wearing clothes all my life but I asked myself if there was a better way. That's how I stumbled upon fashion blogs and hopefully I'm learning how to be better dressed. So there's room for improvement and a better way to do anything you're doing right now. Your business, your blog, your singing ability, motherhood, marriage....everything. I still have a lot to improve on so I'm learning everyday. If you're blogger in the Boston area, you may want to sign up for the upcoming Blog Better conference taking place in March. See the Ad on my side bar.

In what ways do you need to improve yourself?

Old Navy Striped Dress

This is an outfit from Saturday, a very busy day for me. I needed an outfit to take me through a day of looking at houses, choir rehearsal and a baby shower in the evening. I like this dress because it is comfortable and has an A-line shape.  I'm actually wearing it as a tunic with leggings since it's too short for me. The rule for the big chested woman is not to wear stripes but I love stripes and this one doesn't make me wider than normal.
