Hello, lovelies!

Summer is definitely here and I love wearing things that reflect the season.   I got this dress last summer for vacation from Amazon.com.  This dress makes me feel like an island girl even though I’m thousands of miles away.

I styled this look with pink wooden diamond-shaped earrings and gold shimmer sandals.  I wore a black midi dress under my chiffon dress because it is sheer.  I styled my hair in a puff ponytail and  I wore pink lipstick.  I like to keep it simple.

Talk to you soon!

PhD Journey: Online Learning and Social Change

Art.Culture.Life.

 

Hello, lovelies!

For those of you who don’t know, I am working on my doctorate degree.  I am going the non-traditional route and completing my degree online.  Initially, I had my reservations about getting my degree online because of the assumption that online learning is easier and is not credible.  I did a lot of research and talked to professors in my master’s program who completed their PhDs online.

I was told that online learning can be very challenging and demanding compared to going to a traditional brick and mortar campus.  I must say that my coursework is demanding and requires a lot time managment.  However, getting a PhD is not suppose to be easy but it is doable.  I took my time to find a program that interest me and would help with my career goals.  I wanted to do Psychology but my heart was not settled on being a psychologist.  So, I did more research and chose to purse my doctorate in Human Services with a specialization in Family Studies and Intervention Strategies.  FYI, if you decide to pursue a doctorate do something that you are passionate about or truly enjoy doing, because the process is expensive, time consuming, and ultimately an investment in your career.

I have truly enjoyed this journey so far.  The one thing that sold me in to selecting my program and university is that the school has a mission to impact social change throughout the world in various capacities.  I’m all about equality and equity for every person.   I love seeing people be empowered and my goal is help others become empowered.

So, I’ll be sharing this process along the way.  Here’s a picture of me, some the ladies in my program, and one of our professors (blue shirt) back in May for one of our Residencies.

Closet Chic: Sea Inspiration

Closet Chic

What’s up, people?

 

I am in the mood for blue and it’s not the sad kind of blue.  I’m longing for the calm and tranquility of the deep blue sea!  I went to my closet and created this look with the deep blue sea in mind.   I haven’t worn tanks in about two years because of my weight gain.  I truly felt uncomfortable with exposing my arms, but I made the decision this summer to let go and let flow.

Here’s the details of my outfit:

My seafoam green tank, blue pants, and blue shoes are all from Rainbow (Here’s the Website).

My head wrap is a scarf I got from JC Penney.

My necklace is from Wal-Mart.

My earrings are from a consignment shop.

My sunglasses from from my boutique.

Sunflowers and Sequins

What’s up, beautiful people!

I did some electronic digging and realized that I did not share this look.  I love sunflowers and I’m pretty fond of sequins.  This is a budget friendly outfit.  I got this peplum sunflower dress from from Rainbow from the clearance rack for $3.  I have shopped at Rainbow for years because they have have pretty good clearance selection for regular and plus sizes.

I got this sequin case from a thrift store a few years ago.  It was about $4.  I use this often as a clutch and I use it for business purposes to hold documents and my tablet.
