I’M BACK!!! My summer was extremely busy, however fall is here, I’m back and ready for some much needed girl talk! My summer was full of working, events, and weddings! (Every single girls favorite thing right?!) I attended three weddings this year, I celebrated my close family and friends, had a ball, and wore some pretty fabulous outfits in the process.

2019 has been one of my most challenging years yet (more about that at a later date!) yet what has kept me grounded was the word of God and a few self care practices.

The best way to stay grounded is to study The Word of God.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Colossians 3:16 (ESV)

I used to download devotionals in my Bible app and not finish them. There is nothing like a good ol book in your hand. Daily Devotionals are essential in stayed grounded in The Word and motivated & encouraged daily. 

One of my favorite devotionals is the 21 Day Devotional Journey “For all the fearless, fun, fly & fabulous female entrepreneurs!” By Arian Simone

Arian Simone is a fun, fly, fabulous and fearless celebrity publicist, entrepreneur, author, and motivational speaker from Detroit, Michigan. Her client list includes Chris Brown, T.I., Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo, and countless others. This devotional has many gems, is Bible based, and entertaining. One of my favorite Saved and Single Diva’s Fashion Designer Nichole Lynel was featured, her chapter was by far my favorite.

You see, I truly believe that when God wants a change He will make you very uncomfortable. It was all on purpose. All those jobs were in preparation for where He was taking me! So please never doubt the process. He is working things out in your favor. He always has been and always will be. Even when it seems bad it’s good because God is good!

-Nichole Lynel

Once you feed your mind and spirit it is important to take care of your body. Skin care is SO important. As I approach my mid 30s I wanted to create a skin regimen that works for me. I have nice skin however it came with work (good genetics) and plenty of water. Please stay rested and hydrated ladies! My favorite skin care products are by Ole Henriksen.
