Bag of sunshine!

Bag of sunshine!

Bag of sunshine! by qriius-apparel featuring a yellow skirt


You know that saying.. at the end of the storms there is a rainbow and the sun will shine? Well it's actually a very true statement.  I know some days feel like everything is going wrong and there is seemingly no end to our problems but once you believe there is something greater out there for you and try to keep that positive outlook, it will get better.

I am no 'bag of sunshine' but I do believe that once we stay focused on where we want to go in our lives and trust in our faith (whatever religion you are) there will come a time when things will begin to go the way we want them to go. You have to believe in yourself and something greater than yourself. You have to be willing to put in that hard word and sacrifice. We all want the finer things in life but do we really deserve it if we didn't take the necessary steps to get there?

Life is a challenge and we all have some obstacle that we must face to get to our own individual greatness. The biggest challenge is keeping a positive outlook through all the bullshit (yes I cursed). It maybe storming in our lives now but there will be a rainbow at the end of it all. The best part is you will look back and recognize how strong you were. You won't only appreciate all you have gained but you will gain a greater respect for who you are.

Big Girl Decisions

Big Girl Decisions

Big Girl Decisions by qriius-apparel featuring strapless cocktail dresses


It's part of life to grow up...we all have to do it. So with growth comes responsibilities & those responsibilities come with major decisions. I look back on some of the things I did, said and thought as a teenager and have realized that I can no longer hide under the mask of  "she can get away with it because she doesn't know better" because truth and fact is I was young and inexperienced in every sense of the word.  But now there is no excuse if I decided to continue along those immature paths because now I KNOW BETTER!

I do have some things that I wish I had never done but it was all part of me growing up and it contributed to who I am now as a woman. I've learnt to appreciate the value of life, family, friendships and spirituality. This is what our existence is all about! Taking, living and learning from each moment and understanding, that while some concepts of what we may deem important in a particular aspect of our lives may not be as detrimental as we thought when we get to our future selves.  

Something Sweet

So I created this look  while watching E! News and thinking about the girly girl. Now I'm not really very girly and I tend to stick to black and neutrals but I'm considering adding a few colors to my palette. So with that said I chose to create not only a look that's ultra-feminine but uses pastel colors.  I pictured a woman who lives for fashion and it's brighter side of life.
The pink full mini skirt looks great with this shade of green. The  painted bag gives the entire look even more personality  and brings all the hues used into perfect harmony. This isn't only something chic but definitely something sweet!
