Statement Coats

F.A.B Cocktail

Oh hey, beautiful. It’s statement coat season!

If you despise the cold like me, raise your hand. You know the only good that comes of this treacherous weather is the fashion like booties, scarves, sweaters, and statement coats.

I nabbed this cute and comfy hooded leopard print jacket at a H&M in New York last year and it was literally one of the greatest purchases I’ve ever made. Found it on a sale rack for $15!

I actually forgot it was in my closet until a friend pulled out her lil leopard print number recently and I was inspired to rock mine.

The nation and Looking On

I have become negative an depressed sometimes panicky. I think it is awful for a person to cry inside feeling helpless.

I tlold myself not to turn on the news today. Iam nervous listening to it. What has my country become , politicins stabing each other, shootings in school, malls, and driveby shootings.  Then bo,mbing places or shooting people because they are worshiping i n a place they choose and are a diferent race.

Can I get some feedback to give me hope.bless you .

 

Fun and serious

I usually write serious.  However I like fun things like makeup, fashion, and shopping.  Yesterday I went to the Dollar store and hamburger stand.  It was a major step for me.  I hadn,t planned to go, have to do this and that.  I just decided to get together in about 20 minutes and went out.  I stopped what I call my ocd and it worked.

Now I can stay in and do some things.  At the present time I am watching Hoarder.  I am taking things out of drawers and throwing them away.  At the end of summer -when the weather is cool I will be donating clothes.  That show has that effect on me. Well have a great day.  I think I,ll play some music.  Kelly Clarkson and Aretha Frànklin.
