DOMESTIC Violence Awareness.

035 018-3 027

This post topic is a little different than what i normally talk about on my blog and a bit more personal. I was contacted by the Amazing ladies over at Lost Queens to help bring awareness about domestic violence . A lot of you probably didn't know that October is actually Domestic Violence Awareness month And has been since 1981! Lost Queens designed a beautiful collection of jewelry and each unique piece is dedicated and tells the story of a different victim of domestic violence. This jewelry collection and what is stands for is quite touching and heartbreaking all at the same time because people of all walks off like have and can experience Domestic Violence. From celebrites and public figures to people even in our social circles. Domestic Violence is so serious because people are affected by this every day! Including myself. I was in a abusive relationship for about a year, it started out with just being mentally and emotionally abusive to actually progressing to physical abuse. It was such a dark time in my life, but i was finally brave enough to get my son and myself out of that situation. Even though i am now a single mother doing it all on my own i have never felt stronger and more happier to have left that darkness behind me! When i was i was contacted by lost queens to wear a couple piece of their jewelry and help spread awareness, i knew i just had to do it!Even if talking about my story makes me feel really uncomfortable and vulnerable, if i can at least help one person out there then its all worth it! For the entirety of October,Lost queen is donating 10% of each purchase made on SHOPLOSTQUEENS.COM to a amazing foundation called Purple Purse which is a foundation that has worked since 2005 to build the financial empowerment of domestic violence survivors and to help them get free and stay free from their abuser. Funds raised will support life-changing financial empowerment services to help domestic violence survivors build safer lives for themselves and their families. How beautiful is that? This foundation is changing life's and i would love for you all to look into this and help support in any way that you can! Remember! Domestic violence victims that have support systems are less likely to be re-abused, so when you can please reach out to them!

If you find yourself in a domestic violence situation of any form, please get into immediate contact with the domestic violence hotline: thehotline.org 1-800-799-7233

"My problem is that I fall in love with words, rather than actions. I fall in love with ideas and thoughts, instead of reality. And it will be the death of me."

I was excited that i had a excuse to wear this fabulous Novella Royale dress last night! I Have been wanting to wear it out but i just never really had anywhere to wear it to. I went out for drinks and dinner last night with family and close family friends and i had a blast! Not to mention my dress was a hit, everyone loved it! This is literally my 4th novella piece in the red ethnic floral print. I am just completely obsessed with it! Definitely one of my favorite prints out at the moment. Usually i am not the type of person to buy multiple clothing pieces in the same print, but with novella, each piece is so uniquely different that it just doesn't seem to matter if i have a dozen in the same print! You'll definitely be seeing more of this dress soon! It's the perfect color pattern for fall!

So sorry about my little two week absence! I have been crazy busy! From working to being sick on top of being a full time mommy, i just haven't had the chance to post until now! I'm sure you all noticed the huge change in my hair! I decided to give my extension a little break for a while and rock my natural length. It's taking some getting use to because i have been wearing my hair long for years but i was seriously getting so bored of it,so going short for a while seemed like a good idea!Thoughts? I really wanted to do an all grey look because i've just been loving everything that color as of lately!Although It's still not cool enough for the shag cardigan i decided to sneak it into this post because i just really freaking love it See ya next post!

Not everyone is going to want, accept, or know how to receive your energy. Make peace with that and keep on. Man oh man! I can't believe today is october 1st! 2014 really did fly by! All we have left is Halloween,ThanksGiving and christmas then we're gonna be in an entire new year before we Know it!So crazy! Anyways i picked up this black base sunflower crop top from the amazing and i mean AMAZING Sale the LF was having a few weeks back! You guys know how much i love my black base floral print, and the fact that it had huge sunflowers all over it totally sold me! I have been getting so much wear out of this black maxi skirt lately. It seriously looks good with anything!I usually don't wear too many dupes but when i spotted these dupe version of the Tropolie boot by jeffrey campbell at forever21 about a year back i had to swoop!The real boots cost 250 and these dupes look pretty much identical and for under 30$ Why not? I usually hate pairing black and brown together but for some reason i felt like that color blend actually worked for this look. The details

“I can’t be shaken anymore, by anyone. I’ve got to that point in my life that if you’re not a good person, and you can’t make me feel good with love and life, then fuck off, basically.” - FKA TWIGS

Petals and peacocks is one of my favorite brands mainly because i love how they play on designer names and slogans, they're just so witty! I was really excited when they contacted me wanting to send me a couple of things,and this "Just Wang It" crewneck jumper was one of the goodies that they sent over! If you couldn't tell this sweat shirt is suppose to be a play on the Designer ALexander Wang who is also just so happens to be one of my absolute favorite designers so you could imagine how much i love this crewneck! Arizona still has a few weeks left until we get a break in the weather so i can't quite cuddle up in my new petals and peacocks jumper so instead i just tied it around my waist so i can still show off how amazing it is and still get some wear out of its until it gets cooler.I am quite certain that i will be living in this jumper once winter weather actually hits! Its just so perfect and so me! Thanks for love Petals and peacocks!

You are beautiful. Own it. Walk like your hips move mountains.

I have been really into the whole 90's floral maxi look lately, and just about every site online sells them for 80$ up but luckily i bumped into this one for under 20$ at my local vintage shop! I decided to pair it with my favorite free bird distressed boots to add a more chill and laid back vibe to the dress. I think i'll get quite a bit of wear out of it through out the winter because it is black based and would look great paired with a beanie, leather jacket and doc martens!Not to mention it is extremely comfortable and perfect to just throw on and head out the house when you're in a rush. I have never worn as many maxi dresses as i have with in these last couple of months. I am obsessed. Oh and by the way, why havent you guys told me how amazing netflix is? I have been hearing about it for forever and i finally set up this weekend and i have been hooked to my television ever since. It's safe to say that Orange is the new black is my new favorite show! Totally hooked!

"Compassion crowns the soul with its truest victory."

I wore this outfit a few days ago to have brunch with a an old friend then run a ton of errands afterward! I pulled out my trusty old American apparel riding pants and a just a simple slouchy tee from urban outfitters with a flannel tied around my waist and decided to add my red ankle strap heels from zara to kind of dress up this oufit a bit more and bring in the color of the flannel. These two colors i hardly ever where solely or mixed together but i ended up liking the turn out of it! I can't tell you how much i have missed wearing my AA riding pants! I couldn't wear them at all last winter due to my baby bump so you can imagine my excitement o be able to fit back into these! Feels so good! I can't wait to wear my other colors this winter!They're such a a great basic and really easy to style!
