MIX PRINTS; STRIPES x POLKA DOT + MEASURES OF SUCCESS AS A BLOGGER or IN YOUR CAREER

As I seat here, sipping my Cup of Latte. I truly would like to mind my business on a daily basis. For instance, I read a post about BeyoncĂ© I could decide to either ignore it, ponder about it or act like I have the right answer to whatever the post was(my opinion). 



This brings me today’s blog post. Ild be sharing my thoughts on the measures of success as a blogger or outside blogging (I’m sure either of this group applies to you), so seat tight loves.



Quick Blog Update
My current goal is to post two blog posts a month. Other blog posts that you may see will be in form of collaboration or sponsored posts. I promise my loves that two  posts are definitely going to be relevant all month long so kindly check by from time to time. 

That being said, Let’s talk about the overrated point of view that all gender especially ladies need to live by these two words “Beauty Standards” meaning - “The feminine beauty ideal is "the socially constructed notion that physical attractiveness is one of women's most important assets, and something all women should strive to achieve and maintain". Feminine beauty ideals are rooted in heteronormative beliefs, and heavily influence women of all sexual orientations.-Wikipedia. 



Are you no longer a fashion blogger? You asked?. I am but I have come to realize how much effort I put in and how less appreciated I feel everyday. Yes there’s a standard, yes people want to see only the good things in social media. However, when you are real people are concerned that you are being to real, likewise if you decide to fake it they will still have something to say. This has made me think long and hard enough. 

A few questions that I constantly ponder is how do you even measure success, enough for you to be able to decide that a blogger myself is doing well or even if you are not a blogger how can you measure your level of success without needing any validation from anybody.



Okay before I tell you how I measure my level of success. I want you to know that it’s very easy to do this and be better or do this and relax because you think you are in your prime. 

Let’s talk about my cute outfit, I got a lot of compliments on how cute this look was and is last week. I think it’s that type of grown woman look. Chic and classy, I guess that’s what got people talking about it and complimenting me. My subtle mix of prints (stripe and polkadot) is everything. I’m loving his look. It will be available at the end of this post. 


I know you like my outfit but let’s seriously talk, I measure my level of success at anything I do in different ways. 
Are you putting  quality first not quantity? 
• Am I learning it is my level of knowledge getting better?
•Am I satisfied with where I am? 
•Are you managing your time properly? 

I ask myself all of these questions and I think you all should I think we all need to re-evaluate ourselves first if you are a blogger. Put you best foot out first and trust me when I say you will get so much back that you will be suprised. So yes be more worried about your quality not the quantity. This is how I started mine and it took me to unimaginable places. 





Seriously, my level of knowledge now is way better than it was before. In fact, I can say that I have accepted my journey as a learning process and know that Ild learn from mistakes and get better as time goes by.



While satisfaction is not advisable it’s better to have the drive to keep going despite what ever comes your way, is nothing shows up at your door you need to be contented. I’ve also found that the best way to handle  my career as a blogger is to first realize that where I am today does not define my Tommorow. 

My time management is really not that great, in fact it is pretty terrible. But one thing i am able to do is figure out what I what to do and plan towards it. I don’t like to talk down on anyone or brands. However, I just try not to accept every collaboration more like I evaluate who I work with just as the brands will evaluate me. 



The truth is many people don’t want to put in the work but the want to come back with a success story. It’s easy to wish for things that we don’t have but we have to realize that hard work pays off in the end. 

I hope this post was really motivational to you. Seriously loves we need to start fighting for ourselves. 

Thank you for stopping by again today loves! 

See you in my best post.

#BLESSED THE WAY MY LIFE IS SET UP

    How amazing is it to have your life set up just the way you want it to be. Sometimes everything I planned for is what happens eventually,  other times they don’t. I am usually not too mad about stuff that don’t work out because In  the end I know Ild still remain #Blessed.  




    Last night, I couldn’t sleep. I woke this morning thinking that it must have been because I am stressing out about the things I cannot control. Also, because right now I feel like I need to be blessed x100.  



    I managed to get some sleep, woke up refreshed and decided to stop by the blog and tell my story. The story of how much better I feel when I said to God bless me, blessed me lord. Honestly, I told God this morning, favor is all I need and I leave it to you to deal with the rest. 

HOW DO I KNOW IM BLESSED YOU ASKED? 

•I am alive and breathing. 
•I don’t need to beg for my daily bread. 
• I am happy with life, love and I have a family that cares.
• Above all God has been so faithful and if beijg BLESSED is all I could ask for and get?. Then I am grateful. 




    Panic attacks, anxiety they are real guys, with my heart racing as fast as it was last night and the tightness of my chest. I thought it was a heart attack. Then I remembered the fish pepper soup I had just eaten from (African Palace restaurant) it was spicy which made me think it’s could just be a heart burn, coupled with the thoughts running through my mind, I began to panic. 

    Seriously #Hisiclan, if there’s anything on your mind make sure you talk to someone or even sleep it out and I promise you will feel a lot better. Also, remember to cry  unto God and the proclaim it that you are everything good I’m life and that is what will come to you.




    Let’s talk about my outfit. Yes I know you think I am just trying to talk about this with a Tee that has the BLESSED written on it. It’s kind of wierd that everything that happens around us actually works perfectly with what we are going through. So yes! This Tee is just a perfect messenger BLESSED. 

I paired this CitiTrend Tee with a tulle skirt. I wanted to make this look as casual as possible. To make it unique. My tulle skirt is designed assymetrically, with lace trimmings here and there. It’s the perfect skirt for summer. 



    I finally decided to make this look casual by pairing it with my (Wanted) sneakers. These sneakers are so comfy and easy to slip into. 

Where would I wear this look to? It’s very versatile I see myself dressing it up with a pair of heels and adding a blazer for more serious occasions. Or keep it cool like I did if you are just hanging with friends. 


Thank you for stopping by today loves! See you my #HISICLAN in my next post! 

                       Stay BLESSED

HAPPINESS, PEACE OF MIND, LOVE AND MONEY CHOOSE ONE// DATE DAY OR NIGHT OUTFIT

     Seriously, if you had to choose between happiness, peace of mind, joy and money which one would you choose ?. Can you be successful and less happy? Of course. Which is why I choose Happiness and I will tell you why below.



      A lot of people think as long as I have money I can have everything I truly want and need. When truly, having so much money is just the beginning of more responsibilities and challenges. 

     It’s like working so hard making great money and you still have to pay more tax. (The more money you make, the more taxes will be taken out). That’s just one perspective. 



      Let’s chat a little bit more, so I have the money to buy all these clothes on my blog to share and inspire you guys, does that make me happy?. Of course I am happy that i am doing what I love. 

     However, I don’t focus on my pocket but actually my passion. It’s my drive. While money is also the end goal ( everyone wants to make some money from what they love doing) , it shouldn’t really be the focus. 



     Another perspective, I collaborated with @CitiTrends to bring this date night/day look and I can tell you that I did not focus on the fact that it was an in kind collaboration to help them review their quality and bring publicity to you all about how awesome a brand they are. 

   With a lot of issues in society, hate, death amongs others especially very wealthy people this got me thinking. It would be better for the new generation (Us) to try as much as possible to keep our minds focused on success as well as happiness and also be able to differentiate between happiness and success.  

             Why are you saying all this you ask ? 




     Allow me to share why I choose happiness with this key things to remember; 

                   Key things to remember
•Money can’t buy us happiness.
• Be kind to everyone around you as you don’t know what the next person is going through. 
•Live your best life at your own expense, for you and not because you are trying to get validation from people.   



    Let’s talk about this gorgeous dress, Florals are so in this season, I love this floral detail midi dress by @cititrend (check them out on Instagram). I collaborated with them to bring you a few looks as the weeks go by. 

     This look is a day/night time date inspired look. The bold floral details cannot be missed. I think it’s perfect. 


               What are your thoughts on this dress 



      I love the fact that this dress definitely compliments my curves, it accentuates it as well with the frill bottom and frill shoulder. 



    Totally love how comfortable this strappy heel sandals are. They are also snug and very easy to walk in. 

I hope you take some time to reevaluate your priorities in like and make decisions that favor your happiness first and everything else will come. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  If you enjoyed  reading this post! Kindly stop by next week for my new post! 

                    Love you my #HisiClan

The hardest part of blogging is actually having more than a 9-5. It has to do with starting your business and also deciding to live your life and enjoy the journey.


HOWISTYLEDIT; WHATS NEW x THE COLLECTION x SPRING COLOR BLOCK TREND

Hey loves, its been such a long time since I blogged. I know I have been posting on instagram and and its been a drag to even post. I had someone ask me; Why don't you post often? I replied; Maybe because im too busy to even pick up my phone to post. Truly, there's not much motivating me right now. I am so excited about the plans to come. The question is will I have the time to put them into actualization.
