Joy is defined as the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation. However you may define joy is cool. For me Joy is something that no one could touch or replace. On this day I, had received some news that broke my heart for like a few minutes but way down on the inside JOY just took over and that feeling no longer existed. You might ask WHY? There is this thing called confidence that I learned from God. I trust him enough to give me the what I need to remain joyful. Whatever feelings that may come up I depend on God. His Grace and Mercy will always lift me out of any situation. I make no apology for my beliefs in God just telling my story.

After my JOY and Confidence was stripped away, it took years of fighting to get it back and a promise was made to NEVER allow anything or anyone to evict them again. I’ve been depressed, sad, lonely, and rejected. Didn’t like any of them. Everywhere I went they wanted to keep me company and after a while too much internal space was been held captive. NEVER AGAIN! I made the choice to REMAIN Confident in God. There is NO special ingredient or secret code just GOD!!

Makeup and Hair: TricaB

Photos: Believe it or not my Mimi took these pictures. Pretty good huh! Yup she rocks…

I have no collaboration with none of these stores: All statements and opinions are my own. 

Deets on the outfit:

The White Cardigan: Micheal Kors I picked up at  Nordstrom Rack on Clearance. Wait for it…$10.00 I love this sweater/cardigan for many reasons it comfy and with the weather being so bi-polar it just works.

Statement Piece I picked up on Ebay: Those that know me #AllThingsBling. I don’t discriminate!

Earrings: T.J. Maxx (Been in my personal collection for while)

Designer Shoes: Rachel Roy at Macy’s on Clearance. However, cute they be they HURT…But Hey Beauty is Pain! Most of you were hollering over these shoes and honey I couldn’t pass these bad boys up..

Little Black Dress (LBD): My favorite piece of clothing  EVERY woman should have in her closet “Classic Black Sheath Dress”. You can NEVER go wrong. I picked this up at the Salvation Army for only $5.00.

I am always looking for a bargain.#ForeverThrifty

When I look back over my life I can truly say I have been blessed.
