Found the Perfect "BoyFriend" Jeans

I finally found the perfect "boyfriend jeans", the new Girlfriend jeans from Gap. They fit my apple, inverted triangle shape. I love the stretch and color, and the fact they fit over my belly without the dreaded muffin top. They run big, so size down.

…And no that's not me in the photo. I know I've been away for too long. Still not sure if I can continue blogging regularly about fashion. I've been working so hard on my company, the Growth Studio. But we'll see….

Still Not Achieving Your Goals? Here's Why

Hello everyone!

I Just wanted to share with you a webinar I facilitated earlier this week. I hope you will find it helpful as you are trying to reach your goals for the year.....and please do share.

You've attended that goal setting class and you've learnt how to set smart goals but you are still stuck. You want to get unstuck and move to your next level. You've learnt what it takes to grow your business, get more sales, more clients, or more readers for your blog, but there's no traction. 

In this webinar, you will:

Discover the 7 things that are keeping you stuck: These are the seven things you need to work on at each level of your success. So no matter where you are now, as you move to the next level, you have to work on these 7 things to reach the next level.

Listen Here

To your success....

Kick Yourself in the Behind

Personal development, How to achieve your goals, improve your attitude

How true is this for you? Are you looking inward? Take time to reflect on your actions (or inaction) and see what you can do to improve to help you get better results. Blaming external forces and offering excuses will not take you far? 

What excuses have you come up with lately? How can you squash them? How can you work on what you can control instead?

P.S.  You will see more outfit posts soon. I've been so busy with the Growth Studio that I haven't been able to focus on the blog.

See you soon!


Why Intentions Matter

It's the middle of February. For me, after the slow month of January, the year seems to start going by so quickly.  Are you still in hot pursuit of your goals? Are you beginning to cross items off your bucket list? If the initial hype of making new years resolutions and creating bucket lists is wearing off or you haven't written down any goals in a while, here are four reasons why you need to. Here are four reasons why you need to be intentional about your life.

1. You will stop giving in to excuses. You will stop blaming your circumstances, others, society and the government for that issue or problem. Think of the last time you gave an excuse, or the one area where you're still giving excuses and placing blame. Could it be you have not been intentional in that area?

2. You will actually get something done. You will actually accomplish something. You will become better. You will finally get results. What you write down has a way of making you accountable and helps you take action.

3. You will become aware of opportunities and they will stop passing you by. Once you are intentional about something, the resources to get it done will start showing up. Not because they weren't there before but because you are now aware.

4. You actually get to fix a problem before it happens. You become more proactive. You will stop living in reactive mode.

I challenge you to be intentional about your life, business, relationships, spiritual life, career, family....whatever you value, and see what a difference it makes. I am sure you want to grow, reach your God given potential, and ultimately become significant and be of value to the world. That is what success is all about. But you have to start by being intentional.

Request a replay here and I will send it over.

This is brought to you by the Growth Studio, my business improvement and leadership development firm. 

Snow Snow and More Snow

This is our fifth day stuck at home (not consecutive) due to all the snow we're getting...And it will be the sixth day tomorrow. 

Anyway, that's no excuse for not taking outfit pictures right? Although, I've not been blogging much lately, I felt I needed to take my outfit pictures snow or not. 

Have a good rest of the week!

Hard to Find Pieces

Happy Friday everyone. Over the years, I've always been searching for the pieces below.  A red skirt, a yellow pencil skirt, a striped blazer, red dress, bow blouse and flounce hemmed dress. Well, I finally found them but I'm on a spending freeze right now when it comes to clothes. I hope by the time I'm ready to spend they'll still be available.
Get these pieces for your wardrobe to add a little oomph to your style. These are pieces and colors which are hard to find, so grab 'em while you can.

Mint Fit and Flare

Happy New Year everyone. I hope you had a great holiday. Mine was fine and laid back. I honestly don't like the stress of the holidays so I just do what I can. I don't even decorate or do trees.
You can never go wrong with a fit and flare dress because it suits and flatters all body types. This one helped balance out my inverted triangle shape. I wore the cardigan to disguise my heavy top. 
My word for this year is Purpose and my theme is Amazing 2015. I want to be intentional with everything I'm doing and I want everything to be amazing. My relationships, businesses, my walk with God and my health. My bucket list for 2015 covers all these areas.
What are you up to for 2015?
