Hi everybody! I have been a little busy and I am about to let you know why and what I have been up to.

Ok so I am coming out with my very own fabulous fashion line! It kinda inspired this blog. I have been working on it for a few months now but it came to me a little while ago. I was just inspired by a lot and God put that dream in me. Since then I have been eating, sleeping and thinking this dream and I am actually now working that dream and I am so excited! My first of many collections will be out this summer (sneak peak coming soon!); it is geared towards spring/summer because usually the difference between those seasons is a sexy shawl, a cute cropped jacket or a pair of fabulously tailored pants.

The thing about dreaming is the possibility. When you believe all of a sudden that you can actually accomplish something, when you believe in yourself all of a sudden, the feeling is amazing because it’s a natural high no one can or should be able to bring you down from.

There might be setbacks, heck there will be setbacks but it’s meant to set you on a different path to that destination, not leave you back permanently.
There will also be people who might not think you have what it takes to accomplish your dream; don’t worry, let their negativity be your motivation. Also stay away from them! Lol.

The key to moving forward from just any dream to reality is seeing it in writing. When I first thought of doing this, I grabbed a piece of paper in a rush and I didn’t stop writing till 6 am the following morning. What was I writing? Everything that I would do, everything I wanted to do with regards to this dream. I decided that night what my line would be about (can’t say right now but I’ll let you know soon, I promise), the look I would be going for and why exactly my blood was racing through my body. I could not contain my excitement; it was spilling over and still is. That brings me to another key point; love what you do, be passionate about what you do. For example if you love cars please do not go into the business of restaurant and hospitality and the reason is this; there will be hard times and you want to be able to stick around because of your passion for what you are doing. There is only so much money can do because people have left high paying jobs to follow their dreams and that leads me to another key. Do not go quitting your high paying job because you may need to finance it yourself!

Most important, trust God who put that dream in you and believe in yourself. If you intend on going ahead with what you have always dreamed of doing, I’m not going to sugar-coat anything, there is a lot of hard work ahead but believe me the taste of payoff makes it so worth it!

Stay fabulous!
