Wedding Story

The wedding turned out beautiful. My Sunday started out with me going early in the morning to have my make up done at Clinique by Chyan.  She did an excellent job. I also found some products that I plan to try from them.

Since I didn’t get to go to church as usual, I listened to it in on 102.3 KJLH (radio) in car while driving.  I made it back to my brother’s to eat breakfast, get ready and make sure I left with everything that I would need at the wedding venue.

“Starting my make up at Clinique! ” And Yes these are my own natural eyelashes. They are very long.

I was running short on time. But here is my make up done. I wore my Mac Cosmetics Nude lipstick to complete my look. My accessories were a gift to me from bride Monique. The necklace, earrings, and bracelet really complimented my dress.

Thanks for stopping by. Shout out to Chyan from Clinique!! I will be writing about the wedding and sharing photos of everything soon. Happy Memorial Day! “A Day of Remembrance” God Bless❤ 💋

Knowing When To Let Go…

“Life will be much easier when you will finally understand which person to hold and whom to let go from your life” Susan R Sharma

For me when I started to let go of toxic people in my life. It showed me who was really in my corner and honestly wanted the best for me. I felt like years of unnecessary burden had been lifted. So my advice, that I’m still taking, is to take some time and make necessary changes and adjustments in your life. Keep yourself involved with positive people. Keep God close and Stay Prayed up! I continuously pray and ask God for Wisdom, guidance, and strength.
