Step By Step

Sometimes I feel like I’m always running, hardly resting, and wondering why I feel tired!

Well, today I had to take a breather. Some me time. After work I went home, closed the shades, turned on some music, and sang and danced at the top of my lungs.

20 minutes later, I felt bad for my neighbors and stopped. Haha.

The moral of the story is don’t let the cares of this life run you over. I often get so tied up in my to-do list that I forgot to just enjoy life. The mastery of living and living well is taking one step at a time.

Ultimately, life will hit you with all kinds of drama, problems, and unprecedented issues, because we don’t live in a perfect world.


Nevertheless, learning to smile in the rain will give you an even greater appreciation for the flowers the rain will bring.

Find your happy place, and visit often! Creating this All White off-shoulder dress for my #AlanayaAllWhite collection was one of my happier places last week. On or off the shoulder, a little lace detailing added  a bridal flair to an otherwise simple dress. Not to mention it was super comfy!


I’m loving this new bridal fashion season I’m in! It’s making me think, y’all! 😉

Have a fantastic Wednesday, and don’t forget to take some YOU time!
