Ballin’ on a whole Budget!

Hey Y’all! Mini Life Update, working, saving, working and more work! There’s not much going on in my life right now, I’m always working to better myself. Taking it a step further, I really want you guys to feel like i’m a real person, because I am!

As Beyoncé would say “I got real problems just like you”! Yes, I post photos of me dolled up living my best life but I also have real challenges, it’s not easy running a blog. But, I love the process and sometimes it’s frustrating but I really love what I do. For the most part in every post I want you to feel just as involved as I am!

Before any shoot i’m literally all over the place. I get so overwhelmed and have to seriously breathe and ask God to “Give me strength”. I always plan everything out, and sometimes things don’t go as planned. Things not going as planned is perfectly okay, and I have to constantly remind myself of this, things work out for the greater good always.

“People see the finished product, but don’t know how much was put into the process”

My Fit!

The last time I wore this skirt, I shot inside of a museum and I really don’t think the full effect of the skirt was portrayed because of the lighting. But anyway, this look is a little glam with some special touches. I like things dramatic, or you could say, with extra fine details. This Tulle skirt if from Asos, my shirt is from H&M it was only $12.99, shoes are from shoe dazzle!

I love the glitter heel on my shoes, I look for details like that when shopping. It helps me find accessories that make the outfit pop! The Tulle skirt is my fave because it’s so detailed and not heavy at all, it’s sold out but I linked a similar one below.
