Dear Fashionable Friends,
(My golden rule.)
Happy Valentines Day, darling!
I want you to know I love you! I love you for stopping by my page and checking out my latest blog post. If that isn’t love I don’t know what is.
When it comes to trying to be sexy, I am not the one for the job. I am oh so goofy and I just can never seem to stop smiling when I should. +Rell Rugely was able to make me feel sexy in front of the lens during this shoot. I absolutely love them all and I am sharing the ones that I think are the most appropriate. I received this Calvin Klein set for Christmas and my mind was blown at just how comfortable they really are. (Liked HERE)
Today is my first single Valentines Day in a few years (weird). Thing is, I’m okay with it. I’ve kept my love life on the DL the past few months via social media. So I thought maybe today I would be a bit more open with you guys. No I am not going to spill all or give you the juicy details of my love life and why exactly my relationship ended, but I am going to tell you how I made it pass that.
I have been in relationship after relationship. I am that hopeless romantic you read about in the books. My most recent breakup was rough not only emotionally but also on my health. I vowed at that moment that I would not give any person that much control over my emotions. It’s hard to explain without going into detail. But we so easily give people our all to where we have nothing left for ourself. Doing this leaves you with absolutely nothing if/when they decide to leave. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE love. But I want to love in a healthy way. I want to be with someone who compliments me, not completes me.
Nothing is wrong with being alone. Working on yourself is KEY! I firmly believe in loving yourself before trying to love someone else. When this happens you will not feel as though you NEED that person’s love. Especially for all of my college readers who are young and figuring yourself out right now. Don’t feel pressured to be in a relationship just because. Make sure that is not only meaningful, but also healthy and intentional.
I am currently at a point in my life where I am trying to figure out what in the heck is my next step. I can not believe I am about to graduate in less than 3 whole months (WHAT THE WHAT). At this time in my life I want to do what is best for me in terms of my career, my location, etc. I love myself more now than I ever have. I believe in myself, I push myself, I feel insanely empowered. That doesn’t mean I won’t give anyone a chance… (I mean how do you know I haven’t already met someone?) Isn’t it fun to wonder?! I won’t leave you guys hanging forever. Stay tuned for a real love life update.
Catch you on the flip side,
