Blessings for my new yr

My birthday was last month and I’m still assessing my intentions for my new yr. I had a birthday photoshoot featuring some of my latest designs and it was such a moment of pride for me.

The photoshoot meant a bit more to than my personal new year, but also everything that happened thus far that got to this point. Honestly I’ve never been one to celebrate my own victories, but that ends now. I’m making it a point to take a moment not only for praise but to reflect as well. I mean even if I wanted to take a pause to do a little victory dance theres nothing wrong with that either, it’s about time I celebrate the frustrations I overcome. Every moment counts #NoteToSelf 📝

The inspiration pulled for my Peau de Soie Satin gown, was #Garnet has the power to bestow eternal happiness, health and wealth, this #Aquarius birthstone develops confidence and self- esteem into the life of the wearer resulting in success and fulfilment of all desires.

My second look was an Ankara bustier complete with boning complimented with skirt pattern cutouts all thoughout.

This Ankara skirt was so much fun!! One of my top garments I ever enjoyed designing.

I will sure some intentions I currently have for my new year:

1. Continue to celebrate my personal victories, both large and small

2. Remain focused in all aspects of my creative process

3. TRUST THE PROCESS!!!

As always, thanks for stopping by,

Weekends are made for productivity

It’s not always to easy to motivate myself on the weekends especially after working all week. I mean who really wants to be working after all the time and being miserable 🤷🏾‍♀️

– I do cause I have goals to accomplish, at least that’s the new mindset. If I want to live the life I deserve got to work towards it “the goal dont work unless you do” and I realized a long time ago perfecting my craft doesnt make me miserable it challenges me to find ways to figure this out. With every garment I’m learning new techniques & lessons; “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10000 ways that won’ t work.”Thomas Edison

With all this being said I am so proud of the progress I’ve made and happy with this latest fitting.

I figured out ways I’m going to tweak the finished product. But I’m a bit clueless how I want to create the top. I was originally thinking an off-the-shoulder crop top, but I’m liking the bandu too….

You have a goal or dream progress is key. What wins did you accomplish this week?/ What are you working for the week ahead?

As always, Thanks for stopping by

The Joy of Completion

#tbt (well it’s not Thursday anymore, point just the same)

Old habits diehard, but I can’t expect those same habits to open new doors either. I’m slowly accomplishing all the projects I have started & the simple quote holds true “There is joy in completion.” I keep that in the forefront of my mind whenever I get the urge to drop something & start a new project.

I have definitely taken necessary steps to ensure my Self-ccarries a priority in life and I’m starting to shed what doesnt work and unhealthy. Little bit of motivation that’s helping me along the way.

Mondays are for creating

Happy Monday Peeps.

Here’s to a productive & fulfilling week. #NoteToSelf the plan don’t work unless you do 💪🏾get active, create, & be blessed #GoodMorning 31960682_10102208254741987_8783270019388669952_o I am very happy that I’ve been creating and productive. Pushing myself when Im not as motivated use to be such a task, seemed like a huge roadblock for me sit down and create. One think that helps me is literally putting things in perspective, nothing makes me cringe more than wasting time. Im absolutely frightened of being suck in the same situation a year from now with no type of progress. Another tip that helps is knowing myself and when Im most productive; soon I get up for about 2 hours, before I head to work and at night. Pretty much whenever its quiet with the less amount of distractions I am able to find my groove, and get to work. As well as listening to music, playing my favorite tunes just makes the work seem to go smoother, Im more relaxed and eager to get the job done.

What are some of your helpful tips to get Goals accomplished?
