Happy New Year, Merry Christmas, and Happy Tuesday beautiful people!

It’s been too long, but you all were on my mind every day…SERIOUSLY!  I apologize for my lack of consistency and engagement on my blog.  If I could, I would love to engage with you daily, and my hope is to be more present because blogging is truly a pleasure and escape for me.  It feels like a part of me diminishes when I can’t blog.  Quite honestly, I wish that I could be a full-time blogger.  Until that wish comes true…I will do what I can.

Here’s an update on my life.  I am still working as a chemist, and this career move is definitely a needed break from mental health.  I am just getting over a pretty serious upper respiratory infection, bronchitis, and blepharitis (swollen eye infection).  So, for the past two weeks, I have gotten some much-needed rest, fluids, and breathing treatments.

You know I had to give my first style of the year.

So on Sunday, here’s what I wore.

My sweater is from Rainbow.  My skirt is from Citi-Trends. My necklace is from Rue 21. My shoes are from Fashion to Figure.

I really love how this outfit came out. Soft and bold with my tulle skirt and Aztec print sweater.

Be on the look out for a vlog post!

Much love,

A Little Dark and Sophisticated 

Happy Monday, beautiful people!

 

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything on the blog.   I’ve been getting adjusted to my new job, being in school, and enjoying this holiday season.  I hope this holiday season has been enjoyable for you so far.   I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix Christmas and holiday movies.  This time of the year really brings out the kid in me.

I am super excited about sharing my outfit from yesterday.
My turtleneck is from Cato Fashion.  I love the mesh detail on the sleeves.  I’m rocking it with my favorite go-to leopard print skirt from Rainbow.

My necklace is from Walmart ($2.00) and my ring is from Cato  ($1.99).   My handbag is from JustFab.com which I have had for a couple of years now.

Girl on the Go 

Hey, everyone!
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post about some life changes and transitioning from my career path as a crisis counselor.  I recently began working  in the science industry as a chemist.  I must say that I am really excited about the change and the future.

Some of you may not have known, but my first career job after graduating college was in the science field.  I  was a cosmetic chemist for a brief time while I was in grad school.  And it was the best working  experience ever.

Here’s one of my outfits that I wore to work. 



So, you may be wondering about my work as a therapist.  I have started  speaking.   My goal was to do classes, seminars, and along with other speaking platforms to empower others once I became a therapist. 

My dreams are now a reality thanks to faith, timing, and my support system. God is good. I will share more as time progresses. Until then, fill your mind with positive things ♡


XOXO Brandi ♡♡♡

Stripes and Flowers

Hey, lovelies!

It’s Wednesday and I had to share some mid-week chic!  I wore this outfit Sunday and I was in the mood for some mixed prints.  I’m a fan of stripes and I love floral prints!

Here are some details about my outfit.  My top is from Target ($6) and my skirt is from Old Navy ($8).  I got both of these a few weeks ago.  My shoes and necklace are old items.  My watch and ring are from Cato.

I love my crochet hairstyle.  The beauty of this crochet hairstyle is that I love this color without dying mine.

Be on the look out for more post and updates on my life!

Talk to you soon and be great!

Big,Bold Print 

Happy Wednesday!

If you have been following my blog, you know I love color and prints.   I got this dress from Goodwill last month for  $5.99.  I absolutely love this dress.  The colors beautiful and remind of fall. If you’re not into a lot of jewelry, were bold prints.I kept my accessories simple. I wore a bracelet and some stud earrings.  I kept my makeup simple with some eyeliner and lipstick. It looks like I have on foundation, but I don’t.   I have been using organic apple cider vinegar and coconut oil.   I did a curly twist out with hair came out just how I wanted it.


 

Thanks for reading and I’ll talk to you soon!
