Building your Professional Wardrobe

Building your Professional Wardrobe

By: Ms. J

First impressions are very important. As much as people say they do not discriminate based on appearance, we do whether we realize it or not. Looking your best especially in your career can be that one thing that makes you stand out from the competition. I am not advocating beauty over brains; but what I am saying is that presentation is key. You do not nor should you take drastic approaches to be a model at work or school by becoming anorexic or bulimic; living outside your means etc. At some point in your adult life you have to realize that high school is over and you can take control over how your peers, family and general public perceive you.

So you have made the first step by reading this post. Check out Sweet & Stylish every Sunday for new tips and looks to use for your professional wardrobe. We will also post sophisticated school attire as well. Here, we will post a workshop which starts from the undergarments and go up; adding layer and knowledge on building your wardrobe.

 

Let’s take a stand and change from this to this

I am sure that many reading this has claimed 2014 as their year where blessings will flow unto them because I know I sure have. However, are you making a step in the right direction to receive these blessings? Many want to be successful but do not know how to go about it or lack of motivation. Speaking and doing are two different things and in these days action speaks louder than words. What actions are you taking? Whether they are baby steps or giant leaps everything counts to the end results.

First, let’s start off with making a list of things you want and need to do to make your life better whether it will happen this year or later on in the future.

For instance, some items on MY LIST are:

1. Establish my savings account (ie stop taking the money out)

2. Invest

3. Buy a house

4. Start a business

Comment with some of your ideas of what you want to obtain in your finances.

Where’s My Voice?

Where’s My Voice?

By: Ms. K

Time may pass, but my voice remain silent

I can’t seem to revamp the unspoken language

My eyes shows sadness while my voice remain stuck

The tongue in my mouth does not vibrate

 

The sadness of my reality becomes an illusion

My desire to be brave shrinks to wonderland proportion

My worth slowly shrivels up into non-existence

Where is my roar?

Where is my voice?

Have I become an option for every man desire?

 

Reality showcase a woman representation

Without the reality of our tears

Without the reality of our fears

Without the reality of our acceptance

 

I have become a shadow of a brave woman

I have disappeared into the night skies

My existence no longer exist

My voice has no vocal cord

It has no opinion

It only has illusion of lies

 

My beauty is defined by society acceptance

My opinion gets typecast into my wardrobe

My every desire slowly becomes a woman complaint

My sexual liberation only define as a woman loose

I don’t have a voice

I don’t have an opinion

I am only defined as being woman!

 

So where is my voice?

Priority

Priority

                                 By: Ms. K

       When you start dating someone, make sure you establish your self worth. Knowing your self worth is a key factor when choosing a suitable suitor. The problem that many females face during their young adult lives are that they don’t make themselves a priority. They start accepting being an option and slowly the man start treating them like a choice.

Establishing your place in the relationship is key! When you start dating someone its important to set down a certain standard of what is acceptable before you become an easy doormat. Knowing your self value makes it possible to preserve a heart of gold for a man who value loyalty, honesty and commitment. Making your man realizing that you’re a priority and not an option in their eyes. Why do so many woman waste their time with a man who only treat them like an option? They don’t have any desire to respect them as a queen. You’re worth all the diamonds in the world. You’re not worth the pennies of scum.

As woman we cant keep being a man option! Even though females want to be that ride and die chick for their man. Men need to become that ride and die man for their woman. A man, who holds you down, knows when you need a hug, a tissue, a laugh, a kiss, is the man who makes you grow. There are the men who know how to treat a woman like a priority because they love strong independent woman.

Boundaries need to be set! Its not a new rule golden rule but a well establish saying “ Why buy the milk when you get the cow for free?” It’s so accurate when you give away yourself too much the man will slowly start stripping away your value. While the man who would value you is slowly passing you by. Don’t waste too much time with a man who treats you like an option.

Do you know your self worth? Have you made yourself a priority! Only when you become a priority you would attract men who value you on the same level.

I made my self a priority and I can only keep smiling until the right guy come in my life!
