1 S K I R T 2 W A Y S


Anyone who knows me knows I’m a firm  believer in WORKING WITH WHAT YOU HAVE! 

That’s exactly what I did with this $8.00 Maxi Midi Skirt from Boohoo. It was long enough and Styled For Christ appropriate enough to wear as a dress and a skirt. 

When I bought this skirt, my intention was always to wear it as a skirt but, on Friday when I couldn’t find anything to wear I threw it on and, looked around my closet for a top to match it. As I kept searching, a FaceTime call came through and I quickly had to pull the skirt up so I wouldn’t be forced to answer the call in my bra. Before I knew it, I loved the way the skirt looked as a dress and in less then 4 minuets I was walking  out of the house! And here we are on Sunday with the same skirt on but, a totally different outfit! 

Moral of the story is, be creative, spontaneous, and WORK WITH WHAT YOU HAVE. There’s so much you can do with ONE piece of clothing!

P R A Y F O R M E


On Monday it'll be April 22nd again. I may cry, I may not. I'm not one to cry much so I try to find others ways to cope. On Monday it'll be the 6 year anniversary of my fathers death. I'll have to relive how weird it was seeing him lay dead in his bed. How I was headed to take my first 15 minute break at work and, was stopped by my supervisor so she could inform me that my sisters were waiting for me in the lobby. I'll have to relive the pain I felt watching them put him 6 feet under.

When my father passed away, I was livid with GOD! I was about 5 months into my walk with Christ and, I was doing sooo good. I stopped entertaining the sins that I loved. I was praying, fasting, reading the word, serving in my local church and, working hard on becoming a better person. When I got the news that Pops passed I felt like everything I gave up and, everything I did for Christ was pointless. I was MAD! I was MAD AS HELL! I'm still mad! 

As Monday approaches I ask that you all would please PRAY for me. Around this time, I tend to cope the best way I know how and, that is through emotional eating. Pray that the pain in my eyes goes away. Pray that I cope the right way. Pray that I stop beating myself up for the things I didn't accomplish while he was alive. Pray that I forgive myself for giving him a hard time while he was still here. Pray that I learn to cope. Pray that I stop crying. Pray that depression doesn't win. Pray that I may find peace in my heart. Pray that I stay strong for my family.

Please Just Pray!

M Y E X P E R I E N C E


I've had the pleasure of being a guest at a few weddings over the past two years. Honestly being a Wedding Planner is amazing but, sometimes we just want to sit back and enjoy the party like everyone else. But.....to be honest as a planner, you never just sit and enjoy! You pay attention to EVERYTHING! You question EVERYTHING! You say to yourself "Why did they do this, where did they get this, I like this, they could have done this, you can tell, etc."

I've had great experiences and I've had ridiculous experiences. 
Here's what I've witnessed:
  • Amazing Food/Spoiled Food
  • Full Wedding Decor/Decor-less Tables In The Back
  • Punctuality/Extreme Tardiness
  • Repeated Bridal Party Attire
  • Invitation Only/Come On In
  • Bridezillas/Arrogant Grooms
  • Extremely Long Ceremonies/Extremely Lit Dance floors
  • And the list goes on.

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. DO NOT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED!
Do not take the planning process for granted. Do not take your budget for granted.  Do not take the importance of organization for granted. Do not take your planner for granted. Do not think that hiring a planner is pointless. Do not add unnecessary things to the timeline. Do not think that your wedding is a competition. Do not take people's time for granted (It's Rude & Immature). Try your hardest to avoid having your ceremony & reception at different locations. Pay your vendors on-time. Pay your venue off 2 months prior to the wedding (even sooner if possible). Respect every contract you've signed. Do not get tooo turnt 24 hours prior to the wedding. PRAY from day 1 of planning until you're about to walk down the aisle. Do not pick cheap, rude, judgmental and full of excuses people to be apart of your bridal party. Tell your parents "NO"! Be honest at ALL TIMES!

Remember, you want to look back and say "It was worth every penny and we really enjoyed it"!
