What's Been Going on with You?

First off, let me say this. I am not perfect, and I am not a robot.

Now that we got that out of the way let me be quite frank with you. Ever since I packed my bags and relocated to Atlanta, the journey has not been all roses. Granted, I am grateful for this opportunity, but the process that comes along with relocating is mad real. There were a lot of endeavors that occurred in my personal life last year that I unprepared for, but hey, that’s life, right

However, some events happened in my life to where I decided to take a mental break.

Issa #BloggerChallenge: 36 & Winging It

There is nothing like a good ole blogger challenge! My blogger boo Courtney from Passionate Woman CS created a fun challenge in her latest post, 25 & Winging It. She created this challenge for bloggers to share some fun facts, confessions and life lessons about us. So when my girl and blogger boo Michaela from A Dash of Michaela, shared her post, 23 & Winging It, she then tagged me to join the challenge as well and I am ready for the task.

Get Jay's Look: Turquoise Gold Passion

Get Jay's Look: Turquoise Gold Passion

Now I am not going to lie; I was a little nervous about creating this look. As a woman of color, I usually do not experiment with vibrant colors as much. I can also recall a few years back where I did not know how to use such colors, especially on my eyes. Fast-forward to 2016, I am no longer afraid, and I was pleased with the final look.

Get Jay's Look: Autumn Glam

At last! We are in the fall season. Now don't get me wrong, I love the summer, but I also love the fall just as much. The dark hues, the layers, the scarves, leather jackets, boots, sweaters are my favorites. There's nothing like wearing darker, bolder colors and to add a kick of highlight just ties everything together. For this look, I was preparing to see Mary J. Blige in concert.
