The Sunday Showcase Linkup, July 2018 - Independence Day.

Image
I cannot believe it is already July and 2018 is half-way over. WOW!! So hard to believe. As much as I hate that time goes by so fast and our children grow up fast too, 2018 has been a year of ups and downs and challenges for me and some of the past months haven't been the greatest but June was wonderful for the most part. I conquered something big and I also got a new car, among other things. Vivian also started Summer school which she loves (she goes part-time).

For this month's Sunday Showcase Linkup which I host with KELLYANN from This Blonde's Shopping Bag and CHRISSY from Granola and Grace we have a co-host, ELSIE from Polished Whimsy who is a mom to a little girl and a working professional. She is also a skirt-lover as is evident by today's outfit too, love her denim mini skirt. Speaking of skirts, stay tuned for the week of July 9th because Elsie and I are doing a collaboration featuring different style of skirts, every day next week! And, those tall wedges, Elsi…

Poem - Still I Rise by Maya Angelou.

As a writer, poet, reader, content creator and lover of writing, I appreciate a good poem, especially one with a strong message. I love Maya Angelou's work and her beautiful poems, but this one I am sharing with you today is by far my most favorite one. I have had a tough year which has been emotional and going through some personal stuff. But like the phoenix and like this poem says I have still risen up and I always will because I am a fighter and a survivor. So, when things look bleak and your days seem unfortunate and unhappy, turn that frown upside down, smile, walk with your head held up, rise up and start over again!!



Still I Rise - Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may tread me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?  Why are you beset with gloom?  'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just l…

Thursday Moda #121: Fresh White+Blue Stripes for Mommy and Daughter.

Image
Happy Thursday everyone. Two days in a row with Cute Mommy+Daughter Outfit Posts. If you missed it, I recapped our Mother's Day yesterday and today not only do I have Vivian with me, but also my beautiful mama. And the three of us went down-town Brighton, Michigan yesterday after work (in the evening) so these photos are from then. My mom is always a put-together casual lady, but as usual we will focus on Vivian's and I's outfits. That is why you are here for, right?!

FRESH  WHITE+BLUE  STRIPES  FOR MOMMY AND  DAUGHTER. Oh how I much I love white and blue for Summer, especially if the blue is in the hues of the sky, pale blue or periwinkle. It is such a light, airy, fresh, pretty and girly color. Not only it is perfect for Summer but also for 4th of July, when paired with white. Vivian's Adorable Cold-Shoulder Old Navy Dress and my Super Adorable New Romper by American Eagle both have white and blue stripes. Heck, my romper even has red stripes. We coordinated nicely, di…
