So everyone knows that I really love fashion so today I want to do a “closet crush”, my closets nice, it’s a standard closet for a master bedroom but it’s just not beg enough! Not only have I kicked my husband’s clothes out of our master bedroom closet which he now keeps them in the guess bedroom but I have also had to take over 3 other closets in our home just to house my clothing and shoe collection.
Anyway, I love my closet but here are a few other closets that I have fallen in love with!
So most of you know that my blog focuses on things that inspire me in life! Today’s blog is about how God has worked in the lives of 2 young women! He changed the life of one model and through her tragedy; she clung to her faith and saw the good that God was bringing out of the pain! Then there is Gabby Douglas, Olympian Gold Medal Winner who openly professes her love for God!
I’m so excited to talk about 2 young girls who have been blessed so much by God and instead of doing what most people do with fame; they stayed strong in their faith and let God shine through them!
The first girl is a native to Virginia, Gabby Douglas who just participated and won the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in London! She is also the first American gymnast to win the gold medal in the individual and team women’s all-around competitions at the same Olympics. Gabby is the first African-American woman to be the individual all-around champion! All I see here are blessings from God pouring into her life!
Our second inspirational story: Last year, model & author Lauren Scruggs walked into helicopter blade while it was still spinning. She lost her eye and one of her hands but through this pain, God proved he is a loving God and brought Lauren to where she is today, stronger than ever in her faith!
Lauren continues to see life as an inspiration; she is a fashion blogger and recently wrote her first novel.
Girls, if you want a role model, both these girls are defiantly at the top of my list!
Watch the video of her first interview since the accident.
So I have not posted anything since June and that’s mainly because I have been going through a lot of stuff since then! Most of it has been good, let’s take a roll call to everything that has happened lately.
I was officially baptized in April and that totally brought forth so many wonderful changes in my life, I transformed my way of thinking, my priorities and my relationship with Jesus! I almost gave up blogging all together but have since consulted my Mom and have decided to reorganize my blogs focus. If you have ever read myAboutpage then you probably know that I have always claimed to love Jesus but now I plan to incorporate my love for Him into this blog, how great is that! Love it or leave it, I don’t really care. This is me and I will not apologize! You can expect some major changes to my blog very soon!
Next I finally graduated (with honors, just joking but I did have a high GPA) in June so I’ll post some pictures of that! I was so excited and happy but mostly relieved to finally close that chapter of my life! It was a long time coming, let me tell you! Now, with all my free time I have been concentrating on my volunteer work and I’m also about to begin working with children at my church in the AWANA program, I'll finish up the training next Saturday. And I can update my blog more often!
My family came for my graduation and to visit the DC area for a week and that was pretty fun, it was their first time here so I did the whole tour guide thing and we really had a blast!I We did a lot of site-seeing and even though I live here, I got to visit some places I hadn't been.
After they left, I went on a few vacations, all domestic but nonetheless, still worthwhile! I just came back from Las Vegas, (since I don’t drink or gamble I spent my days sitting by the pool reading!) Then it was off to New Orleans for a few days. I’ll try to post some pictures of my trips soon. New Orleans is definitely an interesting city but to be honest, I’ll probably never go back! It really wasn't for me!
