Have A Happy New Year!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas. I can't believe we've reached the end of 2015. It's been an overall good year for me. It wasn't all smooth sailing, but I'm blessed to have seen another year and look forward to what 2016 has in store for me.

Revelation 21:21,23,27 NLT

21.The twelve gates were made of pearls--each gate from a single pearl! And the main street was pure gold, as clear as glass. 23.And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light. 27.Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty--but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

Each year, most of us set goals for the new year and try to stick to them. I'm one of those people that sets a goal and completely forgets about it by March. However I will never forget my ultimate life goal and that's keeping my reservations in Heaven. I'm not in a rush to get up there, but can you picture how beautiful this place is? God created it all for us with love and care. Pain, struggles, darkness etc., none of it exists in Heaven. The bible provides all the guidelines for us to earn our ticket to Heaven. It's is ours for the taking but we must do our part on Earth as faithful servants to God.

Happy New Year & Stay Chic!

DIY Last Minute Gift Idea


Christmas is almost here guys! I hope you've wrapped up all those gifts. If you're one of those last minute people like me, I have a solution. Fur key chains have definitely been on trend in 2015 fashion. They're such a chic way to add some pizazz to an overall look. I had a hard time finding one in stores and I'm too impatient to wait for shipping. While surfing youtube I came across a few DIY fur key chain tutorials and thought I'd share what I've learned.This DIY  project is a quick and thoughtful gift to add to any fashionista's style.


      *Don't forget the scissors*

1. Using the circular object, trace a circle on the back of your craft fur.

2. Cut out your circle
*Warning your work-area will get furry*

3. Thread your needle (I used about 13 inches of thread)  and stitch all the way around the circle staying close to the edge. Remember not to tug on the thread when you're sewing because we don't want it to tighten. Once you've made it around, keep your extra thread attached to the needle.

4. Pull on the extra thread until the edges of your fur start to fold in. Next, put some cotton balls inside your cocoon.

          5. Continue pulling on your thread until the cotton is no longer visible.

6. "Thread" the extra thread through the key ring.

7.  Congrats you made it to the last step! Now that your key chain is threaded, pierce the needle through the fur. Continue looping the thread through the ring as much as you prefer so the key chain is securely attached. (Pulling the thread tightly) Once you're satisfied, cut the excess thread and tie a knot.
SN: I used white thread so I could see better when sewing, but the fur hide my stitch work. Use black thread for a more seamless look when gifting it to someone.

¡ Finito !

'Tis the season
John 3:16 NLT

16 "For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life."

It's a blessing to be able to give to others. The greatest one of all was God's gift to us. What's so awesome about this gift is that anyone and everyone can have it. This gift doesn't cost anything because it's already been paid for on calvary. All we have to do is accept it. How easy is that! Let's not forget that Jesus is the best gift that we could ever receive.

Merry Christmas & stay chic!

A Break from School

Hi everyone! It's been a while since you've heard from me. Fall semester has kept me quite busy and I haven't found time to post as frequently. My goal for spring semester is to manage my time better so I can post more. Now that finals are over I can relax and get some free time!

John 8:13-16 NLT

13 "The Pharisees replied, 'You are making those claims about yourself! Such testimony is not valid.'14 Jesus told them,"These claims are valid even though I make them about myself. For I know where I came from and where I am going,but you don't know this about me.15 You judge me by human standards, but I do not judge anyone. 16 And if I did, my judgement would be correct in every respect because I am not alone. The Father who sent me is with me."

We all know the story of Jesus born in Bethlehem sent by God to save the world. His purpose was to spread the Good News. Jesus had the best intentions for us, but even He had to face naysayers. Jesus continued His journey against all the negativity. People may doubt or criticize you but remember God is the only one we are here to please.God has a purpose for all of our lives and we can't let others stand in the way of fulfilling that purpose.

Stay Chic!
