To Fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness ~ Robert Morley
I can’t believe we are half way through February! This year we didn’t have plans for Valentine’s day other than just chilling at home; I did want to share this glam yet effortless winter look that is perfect for Valentine’s day or any other special occasion. I basically used most of the items from my closet – Black top, jeans and blush pink pumps.
Happy New Year everyone!!
I hope you all had a great time with family and friends. I sure did! I have been away from social media for about a month now and haven’t posted a blog in a while. After taking a break for sometime and reflecting on the past year, I decided to come back and start blogging again.
I love blogging when it’s stress-free but over the past few months, it became overwhelming for me. I was trying to catch up with established bloggers or new bloggers who were growing very fast. I couldn’t move up the ladder as quickly as others because it involved more than just time, commitment, and money for me. I made a lot of great memories in the past two months, traveled places and I unplugged for most of the time. I do have a few travel stories to share with you all in the next few weeks. For today I just wanted to sit with you and share my first post of the year.
Blush Pink Bebe Backpack – I have been looking for a perfect sized backpack for travelling and I found it at TJ Maxx. This backpack is under $40 and has this beautiful squishy quilted look with gold details. You can also find it Here. TJ Maxx is also my favorite place to shop for Shoes & home stuff.

I love fall fashion and have been experimenting with different colors this year. However, I am always partial to hues of red – it’s my favorite. I recently went to a formal event where I wore this beautiful Burgundy Maxi Dress from Shein. I can’t resist shopping from Shein; they always have the trendiest clothes at reasonable prices. I got it in the smallest size ‘S’ for under $40. I had to alter it a bit for a better fitting. I love the ruffles on this dress – gives the illusion of a high low dress but it’s a maxi dress.
Hello Loves! I have been having a wonderful time enjoying the long summer days. When it comes to styling outfits for summer, I love the good old maxi dresses. You cannot have enough of them in your closet for summer because they are perfect for picnics, beach outings, and even weddings. I recently bought this Blue maxi dress featuring an ombre dye wash, strapless cut, high neck, drawstring keyhole back, and an M-slit skirt. The fabric is very basic and soft. If you pair this dress with red sandals, it will make for a flawless outfit for 4th of July weekend. I wore this dress on our day trip to Martha’s Vineyard; it was comfortable and complemented the vibe of the Island.

Confidence may not bring success but it gives you power to face any challenge.
One of the things that held me back from pursuing my dreams for many years was fear of failure. I clearly remember the day I did my first fashion post on Instagram and Facebook; it wasn’t easy to put myself out there. Constantly thinking what other people think made me anxious but I can say I have come far since that day. I may not be successful yet in this new venture but I am improving, my confidence keeps growing every day. Confidence is the ability to feel beautiful without having someone to tell you.
