Lights, Camera, and Action!!!!!!!!
One thing I am learning about taking your own photos is you must be comfortable with you and this project and as my boyfriend told me yesterday “Own it!!”.
Basically, don’t be afraid of people staring at you. I almost got a little nervous when a young boy and his Mom went past me on a bike and then I thought “Michal, just zone everyone out. Own it”.
“If you accept it, the world around you MUST follow suit”.
One thing I have learned about blogging is you have to stay consistent, no matter what. That is the only way to build your audience and your brand and sometimes in life there are hurdles to overcome………….(it happens, just roll with it).
Here recently, I have been trying to teach myself how to be my own photographer. The inside story is my photographer, who is my oldest child, works really long and hard hours as a manager in the foodservice industry. I am so proud of him for his work ethic…………(proud Mom moment, let me take a moment. #veklempt Talk amongst yourselves)
Okay, I’m back. The result is I need to find a photographer………….enter myself in the training wheels phase of the world of photography.
I took these photos over the weekend and for the next month, I will try to commit to learning how to master taking selfies. Lift me up in your prayers, won’t you? 🙂

The “E True Personal Blog Story!” behind #OOTD posts are they sometimes have to happen quick. Sometimes, you are about to leave with kids in the car and you’re all like “Hurry up and take this picture so I can post it”. #noliestold
The reason I wanted to post this jumpsuit is that I have been waiting for a few months for this Free People Color My World jumpsuit to go on sale. I saw it originally in the Free People store but when I checked online and it was nearly 50% off at Macy’s, well, I just had to have it. I consider these types of situations as blessings. #thankful
This Resort 2019 collection by designer, Antonio Berardi is everything that is stylish in the world of fashion from the use of stripes, oversized smocks and the beautiful color yellow on the model’s gorgeous dark skin.
Designers truly set the stage for the upcoming fashion trends.
I went to my cousin’s wedding this past weekend which was beautiful. I almost felt a watery substance trying to form in my eyes when they were saying their vowels. Love is so special to me. ❤
Anyway, my off the shoulder dress that I wore was not really hard to find as I shop at Vici Collection all the time. This store has becomes my favorite store. Their selection of bohemian chic-date-night-brunch-with-my-girlfriends apparel is par excellent. It seems every week now I seem to find something else I add to my wishlist.
This year is going by so quickly and one thing I know for sure is I am growing with the times. I am not the type of person who says “Shh, don’t tell people my age.” I am proud to be 42 years old. The growth and experiences that God has allowed me to conquer, I don’t take that for granted.
Anyway, the first dress I am wearing is one of my favorite vintage dresses. I have had it for years and it has a few tears here and there that I had to mend but I love it because it’s so carefree. I am a maximalist and it’s hard for me to part with my maxi dresses.
The 2nd look is featuring a pleather skirt I purchased for GoJane.com last year. I love that store.
