Memo 077: Dream Chaser

So, I just started re-reading “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. Good thing I started by myself because I was in my room HOLLERING at the truth that the first 23 pages were speaking over my life! Seriously, if you’ve never read “The Alchemist” first slap yourself then get your life and get the book! It is life changing…

My favorite quote so far is “People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of”.  At any moment, you can go after your dreams. You’re not too old. It’s not too late. You haven’t missed your chance. Ya’ll…

I will go to church on this here blog post! Amen? Amen.

Moving on, I’ve featured a little black, white and gold in this outfit. Black and white on it’s on has such a strong presence. Adding gold is just icing on the cake. And yes, I do believe that you can rock a little leather (faux or real) in the summer time and still keep it cool.

      I was never technically natural. I had like 1/3 natural hair and 2/3 relaxed hair. I finally decided to chop it off! And yes I'm back using the creamy crack…

      I have committed to re-reading this book at least once a year. It's a wonderful little reminder to go for your dreams and I am here for every little piece of it!
