Retro Chic


Retro Chic isn't in unless you are in the lower east side of New York.  If you are in Charleston, SC you need to take the Retro look to the local Goodwill or the nearest Thrift Store... I'm not saying that Retro Chic is a bad thing but very few people can pull off this look. You must know your body type before you start dressing it with the newest trends or the vintage look.  I truly believe that everyone has a style but some individuals need to explore there style more especially if you fined yourself wearing Retro Chic....This would included not only your clothes but you hair styles also.  I believe imaging or branding yourselves is wonderful.  But, is it imaging or branding when you are the only one who thinks you look fashionable...


So, what do you think is Retro Chic?

Friendship, Right or Wrong for You

How do you know when your friendship with someone is over?

When you started to grow and the people around you started to say it doesn't take all of that to have a successful lifestyle.  This is the first sign that you don't have the right people in you circle of friends.  A true friend will always push you to get better and when you get better those same friends will be there to celebrate you and celebrate your successes.  When you tell your friends that you're living your dreams and they can see that you are living the way you have always wanted to.  And, those friends tell you that they think you should slow down and be careful because you could lose everything you have worked so very hard for then those are friends you need to weed out of your life.

Sometimes, people want you to stay in one space because they don't want to see the dreams and goals in their own lives that they haven't accomplished.  

These are something you need to look for when you are getting into a friendship or a friendship you already have:
  • Does this person bring anything to the friendship?
  • When you go out is he/she always looking for you to pick up the tap?
  • When you are in need of help does he/she step up to help you or does he/she step in the background and say nothing?
  • If when you are around him/her you feel like they are always looking for a argument with you that's not a friendship.  That's a wolf in sheep clothing..
  • When you meet new people and they are happier for you than you so called friend just move on and get that person or those people out of you world...
Remember, these are just a few key things to look at when you are looking at true friendship...Because if a person is around you just for what they can get then you can do without those kinds of people around you.  You will never go where you need to if you have a ball and chain around your neck in the form of a friend. Think about these thing and clean out your friend closet.  Because when you clean out the old something new and better will come along, but as long as you have that old friendship you will never meet you new and true friends.....

How do you know if you married the right person? cont.

I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because, THE KEY TO SUCCEEDING IN MARRIAGE IS NOT FINDING THE RIGHT PERSON; IT'S LEARNING TO LOVE THE PERSON YOU FOUND. SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. It'll NEVER just happen to you. You can't "find" LASTING love. You have to "make" it day in and day out. That's why we have the expression "the labor of love." Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO TO make your marriage work.

Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship Will make your marriage stronger. It's a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable - you can "make" love.

Remember, LOVE and DEDICATION it always work if you continue on a daily effort....

How do you know if you married the right person?


EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fe
ll in love with your spouse. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies.  Falling in love with your spouse wasn't hard. In 
fact, it was a completely spontaneous experience. You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love - because it's happening TO YOU. People in love sometimes say, "I was swept off my 
feet." Think about the imagery of that expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.  Falling in love is easy. It's a passive, spontaneous experience.  But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria of love fades. It's the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is 

not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage. At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking, "Did I marry the right person?" And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when marriages break down. People blame their spouse for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most obvious. But sometimes people turn to work, church, a hobby, a friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it.

Stay tune for more we're just getting started!!!!!

Is YOUR Mindset Holding You Back?

Where you are in your life does not determine where you are going, it is just a reflection of your achievements or failures.  So you haven't made your first million yet, keeping pressing towards that mark.  Don't you know consistency is the key. Hang arounnd people who have achieved you are aspiring to obtain and ask them if you can intern with them.  You have to count the cost for whatever you are aspiring to be or do.

You can not be lazy. If you are not willing to work your vision, please believe no one else is going do it for you.  If you are the type of person that have grand ideas and goals, but you loose focus easily, my question to you is What is your purpose?  Why do you want to do what you do?  Who is it going to benefit?  Can you do this for free and still produce a great product or service?  What is your motivator?  Time, Money, Status, Advancement of Humanity...etc...

I am an event planner/designer and I love what I do.  If I never get a celebrity platform/millioniare status, guess what I a perfectly confident and pleased with what I am and have accomplished thus far. I am sure of my purpose. Money is wonderful and I do want to make lots of it, but my motivator is the passion that I have for my craft/gift.  I know without a doubt that every project that I am a part of is going to be done in excellence, without stress and pressure and the people who part-take in the event will have a memorable time!  I ensure that the team of people that I work with understand the importance of agreement.  We all say the same thing we mind the same thing.  By doing this the end product/service is that of excellence and a happy, stress free client.

Have I had opposition? Yes.  My biggest opposition was my MINDSET.  No one was telling me that I couldn't do it, quite the oppose I have a great support system.  I was just afraid.  What if I failed? What if I get rejected?  WELL...my counter questions are What if you don't fail?  What if you don't get rejected?  I constantly said to MYSELF you can do this...it's great to have a support system but you have to be the main supporter.  You must believe in yourself and the abilities that GOD have given you.  I know I do...
