Hello everyone! Happy Labor Day and happy Monday! Mondays are dreadful but glorious all at the same time. They are indicative of a fresh new start and that's what I love about them. Fresh starts are much needed. We all go through times in our life were we might feel like we are being engulfed by smoke and struggling, even gasping for air. Super graphic, I know. But i've been there, I know that feeling.  I have experienced it when it comes to school, relationships, and life decisions. This past year hasn't been the easiest for me it has had many highs and lows, like I've mentioned before. Currently, I am in a place in my life where I can easily find myself every single direction in my life. Should I change my major? Umm no, suck it up and do what you love. Nobody said it was going to be easy, but oh it will be so worth it in the end. Or I think about if I will ever get the chance again to fall so deep in love that all the past hurt is erased. The transparency is real. I also think about all of my student loans, my car accident, my passion for writing and blogging and how can I use this platform to express myself and reach my community of people, and what I am going to cook tomorrow. Has your brain ever had so many thoughts racing at the same time that you felt like it couldn't stop. Literally me! I swear I have hyperactive brain activity lol. I am an over thinker, I worry too much, and I am a planner. So when things go crazy and I don't understand why its happening I go crazy. That's when I remember that God is in control and everything will be alright. If it's meant to be, it will be. My campus pastor said, "If He brought you to it, He will bring you through it." That phrase struck home for me. There can be a bajillion thoughts in my brain and a lot of things I could sit, pout, and dwell over, but I just need to trust. If I trust God in different areas of my life, then why shouldn't I trust him to come through in those other areas that I am freaking out over. Let this be a complete encouragement to you. Grab a hold of Him because He has never let go of you. Be thankful for fresh starts, for Mondays. Everyday that you open your eyes in the morning, that is a fresh start. Live your life vivaciously and full of vigor. Don't let your thoughts or daily downfalls get the best of you. Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy. Acknowledge that and move on. Grow. We aren't called to be stagnant, we are called to grow, to adapt. So get off your butt and conquer MONDAY!

Raiza! 

I have been wanting a co-ord/matching set for the longest time. It was love at first sight when I found this set on  Lulus.com. As a lover of neutrals, this set is heavenly and quite a productive piece. You can use them together or as separates. I foresee many outfits for the Fall season including one or the other or even both! Head over to their site for more pocket emptying temptations!
