My new favorite fabric store & MiMicItMonday is BACK!! Featuring MimiG!

Happy New Year again!! Vacation is over and I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season. Although I was sick my entire vacation, I managed to get some rest but not much sewing done. I had so many plans to sew over my holiday break but my body had other plans. All I could do was gather inspiration while I tried to recover. A few week ago while out with my special guy he said he wanted to take me somewhere to eat...now anyone that knows me, knows how much I love to eat so I was down! As we were driving we literally stumbled upon the fabric store...I thought that was where he was taking me! It was a total surprise to both him and me...well I couldn't not go in could I?







So while I was visiting Shor I found some delicious scuba fabric. I went to this store 3 times before I bought it because I kept saying, its not the season for it.. but who says you can't have a little springtime in winter? .then I remembered this pic of Mimi G...


I ran back to Shor Fabrics in Newark and scooped up that scuba...and I was not disappointed that they still had a little left and I got all they had of this. I created my look by using Mimi G for Simplicity 1283 crop top extended of course, accented with finger holes on the sleeves and a circle skirt with a 3 inch waistband...super cute and super fun, let me know what you guys think.









Buckle up for an exciting ride in 2016 and as always in parting 
Keep it Sassy, Classy, Sexy, Period.

Climbing my way back/My Favorite 17 looks of 2017!

I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming
There's a voice inside my head saying,
You'll never reach it...

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels,
Lost with no direction
My faith was shaking,
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high...

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
There's always gonna  be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose,
Aint about how fast I get there
Aint about what's waiting on the other side...
IT'S THE CLIMB!!!

It's been a looooooong time since I last blogged, I've had a whole lot going on. When I first started the blog, it was for the main purpose of showcasing my sewing, however I discovered there are other layers to me besides sewing. Sewing has become a very huge part of my life since started way back in 2013. If you're new to the blog check out my very first post HERE!!!

Since I've been away for awhile, I thought I would post my 17 favorite l…

#FlashbackFriday!!!!/My most FAVORITE FABRIC FIND EVER!!!!

Before I jump into this #FlashbackFriday let me bring you guys up to speed... What a couple of weeks I’ve had!! You know when I started this blogging journey; I didn’t really know what I was getting into. Sewing is my sanity and if I didn’t have it, I might go absolutely mad! Since September I essentially was working 3 jobs (yes 3 jobs) Before Care, Day Job, and After Care. Now while this all took place in one location…I was drained working from 7am to 6pm. I started to notice that let alone was I not having enough time to blog; I was too exhausted to sew! My son who has Autism was doing okay at first but then started to have more frequent meltdowns. I also was in preparation to send my daughter back off to complete her senior year of college with financially issues!! So who do you think had a meltdown next? That would be me and I was not “Tickled Pink” about it! I had to do some reevaluating.

While I’m sure a lot of you might be saying “Show Me The Money”, I had to make a decision an…

I'm a Survivor!!!!!

I'm a survivor
I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop
I'm gon' work harder
I'm a survivor

I will survive
Keep on survivin'- Destiny's Child

I am the epitome of "I don't look like what I've been through", Weighing in a 3 lbs 5 ounces and 3 months premature I was born a survivor. My hope for this blog is to be a beacon of light and hope for someone that doesn't think they can make it... YOU CAN!! I am far from where I want to be, but right where I need to be!
I've been working really hard over the last few weeks to get this blog off the ground...and what better season than Fall, where the weather and fashion can change like the color of leaves...

I know you must be thinking "Why now? Why at this time?" Well, I will tell you why, there is a reason why I did indeed pick this particular time and "SEASON" to share…
