word of the year: ELEVATE! 🙌🏾
I chose a word to act as my mantra and guiding principle for the year in a holistic view. My inspiration throughout the year comes from the word, ELEVATE. This exercise also helps me identify patterns that can be easily dismissed if I can visually see the word & the end goal throughout any roadblocks that may come. •
What’s your word? Comment Below! 👇🏾
Low quality picture but it’s a high quality love. I just can’t get enough of this boy and to think he will be a big brother in a few months ahh cuteness overload (and stress but it’s fine). Any mommies of two under two drop some tricks to keep my sanity intact! 🤪

I’ve been known to have several different facial expressions. This is my, “You tried it face.” And one of the things I’m talking about is stress. Stress does happen hey it’s life sometimes! But it’s somethings that you do that places unwanted stress on you! And sis that’s not ok!
Lately I’ve really been learning how to protect my energy and not to create stress for myself. Have you seen people that create stress for themselves, then they be all in an uproar and they are the reason why they are in the situation? 🤷🏽♀️ If I see a situation that I’ve stepped into and it’s starting to make my blood boil or I start having hot flashes or itching I exit. It’s not worth my energy or worth getting upset over.
Here are some ways to help you keep your stress low.
1. Say No! It’s ok to say no
2. Create boundaries. Boundaries are good.
3. Stop volunteering for everything! Ooo chile I know I’m stepping on a couple of toes on this one. You don’t have to do everything. Release that stress and stop thinking you gotta volunteer yourself or your services.
4. It’s ok to walk away. Walking away allows you to take yourself out the situation and think.
5. Declutter your home. When I see clutter I get stressed so this is very important.
6. Be consistent in Prayer. Prayer is a way you can communicate with God and place things into his hands.
Sis it’s my intentions to inspire you , encourage you, and give you hope! Can you identify stressors in your life?

🍂when the leaves change, so does your hair😌🍂
20 Inch Lace Front Body Wave, Custom Color
Wearing my uniform🖤
More often than not, you can find me in a black bodysuit and jeans on nights and weekends. It’s chic, simple, and always makes me feel put-together. Plus, my black leather jacket always matches, which is a MUST when it’s freezing out! What’s something you love to wear on repeat??
EST. 11.15.06 💕 Happy 13 Year Anniversary to my love. ❤️ People ask us how we’ve managed to stay solidified for so long, and honestly there’s no magical secret, just basic life traits. Love, Trust, Respect, Loyalty, Tenacity, and Humor. That’s it. But all of those qualities MUST 👏🏾START👏🏾 WITH👏🏾 YOU👏🏾FIRST! Honestly I should write a book about Millennial Relationships because wheew child the ish that’s going on now is the GHETTO! 😂😩 People are swiping left, and swiping right to build genuine connections, but won’t speak to people face to face. 🙃 People don’t wanna be vulnerable anymore and let individuals know how they really feel about them, so they settle for “situationships”. 🤷🏽♀️ Everyone is showing every part of them on the internet EXCEPT a brain. 🧐 People are setting unrealistic expectations, such as wanting to have a spouse that makes $100k+ , but yet you yourself have never attained over $40k. 🤔 And lastly making infidelity, abuse, disrespect, constant arguing and lying as “Part of the Process”. 🤦🏾♀️ I’m here to tell you being in a relationship is not that hard and “Struggle Love” is not a real thing, so stop. 🤚🏾 When you get to the end of your time, the universe and God are not going to give you a reward for having the most distressed life. ☺️ Take off your clown suit, 🤡 and stop trying to participate in the Oppression Olympics 🤼♀️ because it’s not doing anything for you. Find the person that makes you genuinely happy and do this wonderful thing called LIFE with them. The end! 💕 #effortlesslove

Art enthusiasts should be celebrating this opening reception and exhibit! Hope to see you out there. -
LaCa Projects presents THE IRUKA ELVIS SPELL
Opening Reception with the Artist
Friday, November 15 | 6 - 8 PM
Exhibition on view through January 18, 2020
Transcendence. Transformation. Surrender. In her third solo exhibition at LaCa Projects, these themes are evident in Iruka Maria Toro's new body of work, which offers deeply personal insights into her recent name change and the evolution of her work in tandem with a constant exploration of her spiritual identity. Through a system of complex but connected clues into deeply-rooted belief systems, Toro invites viewers inside her world, with references to the tarot, magic, prayer, ritual, femininity, and medicinal practices. As if painting with a technicolor lens, Toro makes visible hidden spiritual dimensions through intense, color-saturated works, intimate and careful dissections of living flora, and juxtapositions revealing a unique and important relationship, echoing her steadfast reverence to the natural environment and its undeniable connection to humankind.
Oh, hello again! 👋🏾 BTW if you haven’t already seen it, I have a NEW VIDEO UP on my channel featuring my Fall/Autumn pieces from @Abercrombie ⬆️🍂 Their pieces this season are INCREDIBLE and super affordable!

PLEASE READ ⬇️
Everyday isn't going to be perfect. Sometimes you'll have a bad weekend of binge eating or skip your workouts for a day, or a week. It HAPPENS!
We are all PERFECTLY IMPERFECT. ❤
As long as you're NOT throwing in the towel, you're on the right track!
When you feel discouraged in your progress, take a step back and look at how far you've come. Look at old pics, try on old clothes that USED to be too tight, notice how different you feel about yourself and how much you've grown. Not only physically, but mentally as well.
A healthy lifestyle shows on the outside but what it does on the INSIDE!!! BABYYYY, I'm trying to tell you!
Keep going. Keep pushing. Keep working!
When I tell you I remember when my stomach was hanging over these tights! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
If I could take my younger self 1 thing it would be, believe in yourself even if you have to do it alone! ❤
What's something you would tell your younger self?
On this rainy + chilly day, I find myself daydreaming about Bali. I’ve only been home for a little over a week, but it feels so long ago. 😫
I miss the sunshine, the ocean, the energy and the freedom I felt being on my own time. Having time away to yourself is so important to recharge and reconnect with yourself. It’s so important to take time to check in with yourself without being obligated to the needs of anyone else. Taking this time has refreshed & energized me to dive headfirst into work and my personal goals. 💪🏾
Even if it’s just a day trip, commit to spending time with yourself. Commit to detaching and taking a break from the world. It may just be what you need to springboard yourself to this next chapter. Remember, if you’re not comfortable spending time with yourself, you’ll never be fully comfortable with others. Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship in your life. 💛
