Don't Look Back


Life always has a funny way of teaching us lessons... the hard way. Difficult people make their way into our lives and give us challenges that we never thought we would face. But come to think of it, it really is how you deal with these types of people and challenges that really matter. They are put in your life for a reason and you can either let them make your or break you. One of the biggest lessons I have learned is to forgive. Dealing with pain may be one of the hardest things to overcome, but prayer and love will get you there. Holding on to anger and bitterness only consumes you. And so I have realized... BEAUTIFUL things happen when you distance yourself from the negative. Just be happy and don't look back! =)

Life has been great and been reflecting on the challenges and blessings coming my way... I am thankful for both and just wanted to share! =)

On a lighter note, I love backless dresses and this one from Rack Eight is so cute and classy! My hairdresser, Angelo, wanted to try something new with my hair so he gave me some bangs! Nope, no haircuts... just some great styling by flipping my hair over to the front, makes it look like I have bangs. I like this look... it's a refreshing change. =)

The belt is something I created myself with some elastic and spiked beads. Maybe I will show you guys how to make it in a video tutorial next time.

Hope you like my look! Til next time! =)
