Where I’ve Been, What’s New and White Boots

It’s true. I haven’t touched this blog or my Instagram page for more than a year, and I wish I had some really elaborate and exciting reason as to why, but the truth, is I don’t. Life happens and I took a break, but I’m back now, so let’s catch up!

1. Where Have I Been?

Well, in the last year I started a new PR job in corporate America, celebrated six years of marriage, dedicated countless hours to the Women’s ministry at my church, helped launch two satellites into outer space (crazy and random, I know!), hosted our first Thanksgiving dinner, oooo and I spent two glorious weeks in the Motherland…Nairobi and Cape Town to be exact. Can I say that my time in Africa was ABSOLUTELY amazing, life-changing, and all of the good words ever invented? I loved it so much that I want to spend my next few vacations on the continent of Africa exploring new countries. The whole experience was phenomenal. I can’t even put it into words. I was so inspired by the people, the beauty, the fashion, the energy, the EVERYTHING! From going on a three-day safari and seeing elephants up close and personal, to feeding giraffes and traversing up Table Mountain, it was definitely an experience of a lifetime and I can’t wait to go back. I’ll share some snaps below.

2. What’s New?

So, remember that new job I literally JUST told you I started last year? Well, I’m actually about to start a new one in a few weeks. Crazy right? I still can’t believe it myself! Even though I feel like I’m always starting a new job, this time around I really didn’t see this new opportunity coming.  I wasn’t even looking for a job. God has definitely blessed me in the “job getting” business, so all glory to Him! Other than a new place of employment, I really can’t think of any other new things to report. Still no dog (sad face). Still no kids (happy face, happy dance, happy life, etc.). Still no endless clothing budget (double sad face).

3. White Boots?

Okay, so this section is a little random. At its core, this is a style blog, so I have an obligation to talk about some element of style. So here goes. I’ve noticed this trend of wearing white boots with almost everything. I’ve seen celebrities rock white boots. I’ve seen girls in the street wearing white boots. If you love the look and have a pristine pair of white boots sitting in your closet right now or if you have a pair sitting in your shopping cart on NastyGal.com, then I recommend you don’t read this any further. Okay, I warned you! Here’s my verdict on white boots…I’m not a fan. Period. That’s it. No more to say about it.

I think this is it for now. Writing this first blog of 2018 wasn’t as daunting as I thought it would be. I already have a few fun ideas for some future posts, so stay tuned and thanks for reading!
