Month: November 2014

Look 2- Black Friday

I absolutely love casual Friday and whoever invented this holiday should be rewarded/honored in style. I put together this all black workwear look that reminds me of a karate uniform the more I stare at it, I do love it though.

Style Your Life: recap of OPRAH’S Life You Want – day 1

LYWW-San Jose

This weekend I received a blessing that I will remember for a lifetime, I attended Oprah’s the Life You Want tour and heard multiple life changing messages. My friend Nneji told me to apply for a media pass and I did so with the thought that my blog couldn’t be big enough to actually get this. God works in mysterious ways to remove toxic thoughts because I did get approved for a media pass to attend the event. This pass got me great seats both days, a gift bag with a ton of goodies, and access to awesome pictures like the one above.

Day 1 of the Life You Want experience was all about Oprah and how she became one of the most influential women in history , the glistening hero of life . Hearing her inspirational words really fired up my spirit. She really honed in on the FACT that nothing is impossible and YOU have to believe your dreams will come true! You also have to find the courage to be your best self to truly be your best self. If you follow my on Twitter you might have caught a few of the live quotes.  To recap Day 1 I decided to share the great quotes from Oprah with you all, and as you read you may notice a theme. Sorry for the iPhone pictures, no DSLR cameras were allowed.
