You are allowed to rest, but don’t dare give up! – Unknown
Hello everyone! I know it’s been a while since I’ve been here, but I am happy to be back and getting on track with what I love! Fashion and taking pictures! As you can see, I’ve recently gone completely BALD! I absolutely love it and I feel so free! I’ve been away for a bit, as I have been going through a lot with my health. As you know I’m a diabetic, but it’s improving with the help of proper diet, exercise and great support. Sometimes, when your heart isn’t in something, you should put it down for a while, regroup and come back better than you left. Never be in a rush to produce something that is not going to be your very best. My life revolves around presentation and I don’t put out content that I will not be proud of and that you won’t find value in. I hope that you will continue to take this journey with me! Have a great September and I will see you all here next week!
Even a snail will eventually reach its destination.
In life, there are always going to be obstacles and things that set you back from reaching goals you’ve set for yourself. No one is exempt. In my forty years of life and twenty being an adult, I’ve had many, but when I set a goal; I see it through to the end. I was out of work for quite some time, but no one knew unless you were close to me. I kept myself together, mentally, physically and spiritually. I continued to do the things I needed to do and looked for work. I was given a few opportunities to do some things to get my name out there and I blogged more and more. It’s a slow process, but I’m moving in the right direction. I kept going, not just for myself, but for my son. Our children and people we don’t even know are looking to us for inspiration. You can’t let minor setbacks keep you from getting to the finish line. Everything happens in the time it is meant to, so don’t fret when something doesn’t happen on your specific timeline. God’s timing is the absolute best, so wait on him, but keep pushing because you will absolutely get to the place in which you wish to go.
Whatever you want from life, whatever destination you wish to reach; P. U. S. H., move in silence and let those accomplishments speak for you!
Thank you for stopping by! I love you, I mean it! Kimsue ❤️
No matter what you do in the summer, you will never really be able to cool down! It’s HOT, but I am not complaining. I long for hot summer days and dressing in comfortable clothing. This isn’t exactly the best weather to wear makeup, but I managed to capture my shots before the foundation dripped off my face. I’m wearing some old pieces paired with shorts that I purchased from H&M recently. I have so many things that I haven’t worn, so I am trying to get those things worn before this summer ends! I hope you all have a fabulous day and manage to beat the heat!
“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”– Clare Boothe Luce
Being a woman is not easy, but it is beautiful! We go through so many changes, that it sometimes scares us. We take on life’s challenges with grace, elegance and style and we do it effortlessly! We are fighting battles that you would never be able to comprehend! I, like many women have gone through and will go through many things, but I thank God that I do not look like what I have been through.
Now, onto my look! I love that I can be so versatile with my style from hair to clothing! For the past two months, I’ve been sporting a wig, as I am trying to allow my hair to grow without manipulating it. I got the urge to color my hair, so I went to my nearest Walgreen’s and purchased some Dark and Lovely hair color. I love to be different and change up every now and then. There is nothing mundane about me, my look or my personality. I truly do my best to have a good time and make the best out of every life situation and today was no different.
It was an extremely hot day today and although, you cannot tell I was hot; I was literally melting! I was having the time of my life while shooting. I was stopping traffic and it was quite embarrassing, lol! I’m just a woman out here doing what I love to do and trying to make it look easy! I hope you enjoyed today’s post!
So, this past weekend, I had the pleasure of shooting with a fellow blogger and fly guy George Myrie and chatted about relationships. It got me to thinking about my own relationships, or lack thereof.
More often than not, we (women) don’t want to ask ourselves questions about our shortcomings when it comes to relationships because we’re afraid of the answer. It’s important to self-reflect and take a long hard look at what’s happening in our lives to figure out how to correct the wrongs. I’ve constantly struggled with the question. Why are my intimate relationships so unsuccessful? After years of searching and getting kicked in the face by love, I found my answer.
It’s ME. I have a fear of ending up a lonely spinster, so I give a lot of myself too soon; thinking that they will go elsewhere if not given all they desire. I want to show my mate that I’m willing to do my part to make him happy that I’m losing myself in the process. As women, we are so happy to be with someone that we miss a lot of the warning signs or in my case, I ignore them. I recently had an incident that left me wondering what I’m doing wrong. It’s not that I’m doing anything wrong; I am simply giving too much too soon. I don’t make the man of interest work tirelessly or jump through rings of fire for my love because I give of myself so freely when I’m involved. I’m a woman who is extremely passionate about love, building relationships, quality time and all those things that make a relationship successful. I’ve always made myself accessible, but I’m learning that I need to be a little less available so I can take the time to smoke a brother over and see if he’s really here for me or my “sweetness.”
The bottom line for me is…Slow down! If recent events have taught me nothing else, it taught me that the other party involved may not be as interested and/or invested as I am or hasn’t reached the level of maturity to deal with a woman like me. So, I take my time, allow myself to be courted and allow the relationship to progress organically and if they’re too eager to taste my sweetness; they’re probably only there for that in the first place.
I’ve been gone for a minute, but I’m back and have a whole lot to share with you. I have been focusing on so many other things, that I let my blog take a backseat. Well, I’m here and ready to share all of my looks and experiences with you. I want to focus on both storytelling and fashion, so I decided to incorporate my everyday life into this blog. I hope you are ready for what I have in store for you!
A little about what I’m wearing in this post: Last Friday, I had the pleasure of attending a beautiful wedding. My nieces teacher got married and invited us to be a part of the celebration. If you know me, then you know that I am such a sucker for love! I can’t wait to have a wedding of my own. It was a beautiful ceremony and my first Catholic wedding. I opted to wear a Red jumpsuit and white heels, as I didn’t want to be too over dressed. The weather was beautiful and the sun was shining all day. It was the perfect day to say, I do!
I hope that you all had an amazing weekend! Until next time!
Let me tell you about the designer of the dress I’m wearing…about two years ago, I stumbled upon an Instagram page of a beautiful blogger and designer by the name of KTR. I was immediately intrigued by her beauty and impeccable style! In love with her designs, I purchased my first custom piece (not this dress). The attention to detail and the femininity of her clothing is to die for! I love that she has an old Hollywood glamour feel to each and everything she designs. She always makes such exquisite clothing and I found myself coming back for more. I’ve had this dress for over one year, but never got the opportunity to wear it until now. This is a website that you MUST visit because this dress is just the tip of the iceberg! I love when I stumble upon greatness! Because she doesn’t make a truck load of the same thing, it almost feels like it’s exclusive, but like many fashionistas, I have purchased quite a few pieces from her collection and can’t wait to purchase more!
When we think of the month of April, we think of rain and lots of it! I think of Autism awareness and what it means to millions of families, including mine. I’m a single mom of a teenage boy who is on the spectrum. I love it when I can bring my passion and a cause together! I was looking for a fashion forward way to bring awareness to autism, so I had a custom envelope clutch made by a designer here in New Jersey. I love to bring a fashionable awareness to causes that are near and dear to my heart. The clutch is about two years old, but it looks brand new. April 2nd is world autism awareness day and everyone lights it up, Blue! So to bring awareness to the disability, I’ll be doing just that and you should do the same. More and more children are being diagnosed with Autism and we need to continue to research and find a way to eradicate this disability! I hope you enjoyed my post!
In an effort to regrow my hair, I decided to get what is called a quick weave, also known as a stocking cap weave. It’s a chance for me to leave my hair alone and let the grow out process continue without interruption. This is my first time getting this done and I think it looks pretty good. I haven’t seen myself with hair since October, 2013 so it’s a little weird. I love being versatile with my looks and I plan to get other styles in the future.
Now, let’s talk about my attire! I have an abundance of clothing, but lately, I haven’t been getting dressed a lot because I’m not working at a typical 9-5… Most of my things are collecting dust, but I am hoping that will soon change since the season is changing. Heading out to run errands and things, I opted for something chic, but comfortable…at least for me. I love pairing the old with the new! There are many things you can do with what’s already in your closet, don’t be afraid to repeat pieces…you bought them, wear them! Thanks for stopping by! XO Kimsue
When you think of spring, you think of florals of course, but florals and motorcycle jackets? Who would have thought the two would go together so perfectly?! Floral prints are so feminine and girly and I love that they’re being presented in a much edgier way! This is a jacket that you will see me in more often than not. I have been holding on to it for some time and could not wait to wear it when the weather permitted. Although it’s quite windy, the sun was out and that was enough for me. Now that the weather is beginning to break, you will find me in much lighter outerwear. I absolutely hate heavy clothing.
