New Year, Renewed Focus

I’m BACK!

I know its been awhile.. by the middle of 2016, I made up every excuse not to blog. Just ran out of ideas, time, everything. I started doubting myself, not sure what I could offer to other women giving advice on career life or what I could add about the world of fashion. All the negative talk that people talk about….that was me. I got overwhelmed in everything and lost sight of what I want to do, which is to empower women to take control of their careers and look fashionable while doing it. Being Pretty and Powerful. In 2017, I am refining the vision and I have prayed for increase discipline and focus to see my goals through.

2016 was not all bad, I got to witness two of my closest friends get married, one 5,000 away from home and the other in my hometown. I know that 2017 will be another world wind of adventures, I plan to deepen my relationship with myself and God, my boyfriend, family and friends. Slaying my goals at work and school, while looking fashionable and chic in the process!

Since I have been gone for so long, see pictures below from the last half of the year!

I got to meet some POWERFUL women who I FAITHFULLY stalk on social media! Lol!
