Those friends that make you realize how blessed you are to have them in your life. (more…)
Remembering the days they laughed at us wearing our African designs in public. Now they stare in admiration, requesting we bring back extra material from back home.
Nope. Buy yours from Stella Jean for $1000.
when you don’t want ya momma to see your outfit…

Guess who’s the new fashion contributor for MissNaja.com?? I am! Super excited about this collaboration. Miss Naja’s blog, for me, is like an encyclopedia for the modern woman. She touches on relationships, politics, business, DIY projects, family life, beauty, and so much more. Check her site out here.
We’ll have some great projects coming up that you’ll want to stay tuned for! So far, I’ve posted Valentine’s Day gift guides for men and women. Check both out here!
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens
A more preactical winter look for me….
Winning= finding clothes in your closet you forgot you had.
Back to the days of bell bottoms.
When you find that balance, you wanna hold on tight.
Soft and stylish wins all the time.
Just as the weather tried to prohibit me from shooting, so too, people, things, and places can prohibit you from achieving greatness.

Last week Tuesday, December 30th, I celebrated my 24th birthday. Wow, I can’t believe I am actually admitting to my real age. May not seem like a big deal but to me it is. My entire life, I’ve always claimed an age other than my own. I claimed to be older to older men and my elders; and I claimed to be younger to perverts. Well this year, I am just me: 24 years old. Not “twenty something.” Not “twenty sexy.” Not “twenty one.” Not “twenty four years young.” Just 24.
I didn’t do much. I brought it in with someone who means more to me than Cheesecake Factory- my godson Amir. I went to work in the morning. Did a little shopping in the evening, then realized I’m not about that life anymore and returned everything. Came home, went to bed.
This post could’ve potentially been an essay about the many lessons I’ve learned throughout the year. The takeaways. The successes. The experiences. And all the other good stories people reflect on during their birthdays. But I decided against it all. I’ll just leave you with a few things I plan to hold dear to me in 2015.
-I am peculiar (weird). I am set apart. I am not of this world. I live in this world.
– If I delight in the Lord, He gives me my heart desires.
– I can do all things in Christ who gives me the strength.
-There are no Jones to keep up with. I keep up with Christ.
– Where my treasures are, there my heart lies.
-God Bless You all! Thanks for the continuous support and love.

This year I’m going to be more detailed about my outfits. I am the epitome of a bargain shopper, and I want you to be too! So from now on, I’ll be listing the price of my clothes to show you that I can look fashionable on any budget.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop a comment!
2014 was extremely eventful! I never laughed, smiled, or cried so much in one year! All in all, I’ll forever be grateful for the memories…
From my loved ones including the friends who couldn’t be any more closer than blood…
From my manager lol who has been more than a blessing to my life and my blog. Still amazed at how God blessed me with someone like you! I love you…
From my church home, Honeywell Baptist Church, that enabled me to grow in the Lord and understand what true worship means…
From the overwhelming amount of support I get from all of you who follow my blog…
From Arkeem for being such an amazing part of Just Missed the Runway. Without him, I’d still be taking pics like:
Don’t judge, we thank God for growth hahahaha.
I pray God allows us all to see through the new year! May all your prayers be answered and all your desires be fulfilled!
2015 lets get it!
