The New Year is the perfect time to put in the work to achieve the goals we set. We’re fresh and ready to tackle anything. I get so many questions about blogging, including how to start, best practices to follow and more.

Valentine’s Day Vibes :: Styling a Red Faux Fur Jacket

 While Johnny and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, I still get excited about it. I enjoy getting in the spirit by wearing plenty of reds and pinks. This red faux fur jacket adds instant glam factor and makes almost every outfit chic. Styling faux fur jackets can be a little difficult. You don’t want to look too over the top, or at least I don’t. To make sure the faux jur jacket is the statement piece, I’m choosing casual pieces everywhere else. A simple pink sweater underneath keeps my body heat close and blocks out the cold. To keep the look more casual, I’m going with gray jeans. These are extremely soft, stretchy and comfortable to wear. Plus, I love the story behind this brand, but more on that in another post. My favorite over the knee boots in light gray makes this outfit cohesive. Read more…

Hustle :: The Power Within and How I Style My Hair

I’m a big believer we all have something to offer this world. We all have to know our value and should bring that to each day. T3 Micro asked me to be part of their Power Within Campaign and I was honored to say yes! This campaign is about sharing our unique story and experiences defining who we are. They asked me what’s my “Empoword”, aka what ignites my inner spirit and inspires me to feel confident. The word empowering me most is hustle.

For as long as I can remember, my parents taught me the best thing I can do is work hard, really really hard. Not only did they teach me this, they lived it. My whole family immigrated to the U.S. from Communist Vietnam. My Dad, a former South Vietnamese soldier was in a concentration camp. When they arrived in Texas, they immediately started working. My Dad worked at 7-Eleven overnight while attending college. My Mom worked as a tailor at the Crescent Hotel while also going to school. They both raised three kids while doing this. When my Dad was able to get a better job, his 7-Eleven had to hire seven people to replace just him. Now that is hustling. You cannot control how much raw talent you have or your abilities, but you certainly can work extremely hard to make up for it. Read more…
