Happy New Year!!!!

Happy New Year Eve…

Wowzers… I can’t believe how fast this year has went by. Seem like just yesterday I was writing my 2013 Blog Post.

I'm going to try and keep this as quick as possible because I know NOBODY out there in the blog world is sitting around blogging and/or reading blogs right now… Besides, there’s so much I could say but so little of time. 1st off I hope everyone had a wonderfully blessed Christmas.

My Girls & I on Christmas Morning

Toasting to a successful Christmas Exchange

We are the type of household where you have to wear socks (no shoes) in the house... BUT we provide all our guest with FREE BRAND NEW SOCKS!

I REALLY want to keep my table like this all year round... *sigh* lol

It’s funny how fast time flies when you are having fun. 2013 has been incredible I was able to go on 10 (yes, ten) Vacations and that’s not including weekend getaways. I must honesty say: GOD IS GREAT!!!!

I wouldn’t change ANYTHING about this year because it has been a true blessing!!!! It was some things that happen that I’ve yet to share with folks and only my close family and friends know but just know God just keep on blessing. Sometimes it brings tears to my eyes just to know how GREAT is our GOD!

But here's a few highlights of this year...

I did a Vision Board last year and I can honestly say that I was and still am completely overjoyed... Every day I look at my 2013 Vision Board & every day I get closer & closer to my vision being fulfilled!!!! As the day went by another vision came to pass!!!!

 My #Faithnista™ T-shirt line was officially launched!!!!! Can't nobody tell me... Dreams & Visions don't come true!!!! ~As cliche as it may sound: If you dream it, believe it, and you shall receive it!!!!! If you haven't already started working on your 2014 Vision Board I suggest you get to it...  The VISION is REAL!!!!!

This video is of my 5 most liked IG photos...  

Here are a few pics that I've posted n IG today but didn't make the blog... 

My New Years Nails

Taken last month prior to me getting my braids

2013 Confession: I've NEVER wanted to be called "skinny" when I use to hear that word I immediately would think of "Olive Oyl" from the cartoon Popeye and all came to mind is big ole head, big feet goof-ball of a woman but that's the trick of the enemy because that doesn't define me... I've learn to LOVE & accept me for WHO I am!!!! I may NOT be your ideal size but GOD thinks I'm to DIE for!!!! We ALL are beautiful & wonderfully created no matter your size, sex, or color LOVE thyself... There's NO other LOVE that is greater than self-LOVE & GOD LOVE!!!! Don't insult GOD... He make NO mistakes & he made you just the way he wanted you to be... Uniquely You!!!!

Some folks won't share their flaws they too busy concerned about what the WORLD think of them instead of sharing their story to help somebody else... I could've kept this to myself but I'm sure I'm NOT the only person that's dealing with a word or words that may NOT be liked but don't let it define you... Allow it to help you & to help someone else! #SelfLove #BeYou #UniquelyYou #LoveThyself #SelfWorth #GodChilds #KingKid #Faithnista™

Hubby & I came in this year as LAKERS Fan and will always be LAKERS FAN!

This is me today... Headed to run some errands! Inspired by @abyjoe via Instagram -  I will be doing more Style Snatchin' in 2014 so stay tune!

I don't know what 2014 has in store but I TRUST GOD!!!!

~ See you guys Next Year ~

NOTE TO YOU: Remember: If you drink; don’t drive… Wishing you and yours a Safe & Prosperous New Year!!!!

~Until Next Time

Peace, Love, Faith, & Fashion
