The polka dots shirt…


Polka dots continue popping up season after season. The print is fun and can add a girly “vibe” to any outfit (not that guys can’t wear polka dots too!). The dots come in all sizes, however the smaller the dot, the more options you have to mix and match with other different patterns. A polka dot blouse, like the one I am wearing below could make a wonderful addition to your closet. Because of its relaxed-fit cut, it can suit any body type and the styling possibilities are endless. You can pair it with any colored skinny jeans that you may own (red, yellow, blue, green pink, etc.) and wear it loose, just like I did to achieve a more fun and vibrant casual look. Or, you can tuck it inside a skirt (full or pencil) to obtain a more elegant and feminine feel. Adding a necklace and pair of cute heels is like the icing on the cake. It adds to the outfit the final touch and look that tells everyone: I am ready to just roll!!!  FYI, everything I am wearing below is a couple years old but you can find similar pieces practically anywhere you may shop. The bubble necklace I got from Amazon at a very reasonable price. Below is a link in case you may be interested. Hope you enjoy my post as much as I did putting together this simple but fun look:-)  Love and blessings to you all my friends. Sincerely, Ms. Jeannie.

The outfits I put together are for your inspiration and you may be able to find similar pieces in your closet to achieve the look.   However, to provide you with more options, I have included below the links to the same or similar pieces in case you are interested.

Unconditional self love…


I recently found this quote from one of my favorite teachers of all time, Ms. Anita Moorjani (author of  the book Dying to To Be Me), and wanted to share with you all. Growing up I was taught that I needed to love others more than I loved myself. That the more I sacrificed or did for others the better human being I was. Believing and practicing such teachings inspired me to be kinder and very giving to others which in every human’s eyes, including mine, was the right way to live. However, not loving myself enough because of the belief that by loving myself too much would make me “selfish” or “egocentric” drove me to lose contact with who I really was. It wasn’t until later in my life that I realized that WE ARE LOVE and by not embracing such truth, or better say, not loving ourselves enough, we are denying who we really are. And you can’t give what you don’t have therefore, it makes it challenging if not impossible for others to love you back. So LOVE yourself unconditionally and inspire others to follow the same path. Not only would this world be full of loving and caring people but also there will be more appreciation, respect and value for everyone and all that exists. Hope you all enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed writing it:-) Love and blessings, Ms. Jeannie.
