GoodBye July, Hello August!

I can’t believe its August already!  Its kind of a somber moment as I realized its the beginning of the end of Summer. I vowed to enjoy summer this year as much as possible, get out more, see more people, do more things.  And I am disappointed with how much I achieved. Not that I didn’t want to but, life happens and I saw that other things were more important that needed my direct attention. Don’t get me wrong, I been to a few local festivals, dine at restaurants I never been to before, and I went on cruise to the Bahamas. I guess since I did so many of these things in May, early June. It feels like I haven’t been doing much half way through summer. So, I feel the need to adjust accordingly. Re – evaluate, what I am doing and how I am spending my time. Now I am taking care of my business . I still have a very demanding day job. So, I’m not slacking, but still trying to find the balance of having a successful career and a social life.

Blogging, I will confess became a hobby for me,  due to my inconsistency with producing great content. If it wasn’t good. It would never see the light of day. And it was not good, because I was not putting the time needed into it. With a change in job last year, (which turned out to be a great decision for me), and more focus on the family. I became distracted by all that was going on around me and it fell to the back burner. I know.. Horrible!! So I recently put myself on a To Do and Reward System.  If I get a project or tasks competed. I reward myself with something I wanted to buy or do.  It work well in other areas of my life. So, now I will applying it to my blogging. I had to remember why I wanted to do the blog in the first place. Its almost been two years already. And I am no where near where I wanted Luxuriance Style to be. So once again I am adjusting accordingly.  I will be holding myself accountable. I have was already a crazy planner, but  now I have fell involve with the planner community and became way more productive.  So I hope you haven’t given up on me and will keep stopping by. You can look forward to some great changes happening with Luxuriance Stye and it once again becoming the resource I wanted it to be two years ago.

So, as they say New Month, New Goals, New Mindset, New Focus, New Start,  New Intentions, New Results! You only quit when you stop trying, and I never been much of a quitter!

What are some ways you keep up with the daily grind of business, family and stay balance ? Leave a comment below!

Work Wear Wednesday – The Limited Black Collection

The Limited Black  Collection/LuxurianceStyle
When I was younger, I always wanted to be one of those business women who wore suits. When I saw these ladies, I saw educated, power, respect, and class. It was my idea of how to dress for success. You can’t go wrong with the classic black suit. I always say whenever in doubt wear a suit. I would rather be overdressed, than not appropriately dressed. Now that I am all grown up, its funny to say that I’m actually not that fond of wearing suits. Yes, I wear them when I have important meetings. So I do keep a few as a staple in my wardrobe. Because lets be honest, Its never going out of style. I do change up the fit, as times and bodies change. I would definitely invest in a suit as you never know when the time comes for you to wear one. As black is the safest color, but far from basic. I do own suits that are blue, gray, white and one with pinstripes. Wearing a pant suit can make you look strong or intimidating, but if your feeling that is too masculine of a look for you and need to soften up a bit.Try accessorizing as a way to dress up your look. As a suit can be boring to some. I styled my suit with a soft black and white scarf and shoes with subtle designs to give me a  little spunk. As you can see from the picture above. Need more, you can add color with jeweled broch, or necklace. The possibilies are endless.


The Limited Black Suit Collection comes in variety styles of pants, dresses, skirts and jackets. So I am confident that you will find a fit apporpiate for your frame. What’s also great about The Limited is that they can tailor your suit to be custom fitted.So, check out the site here for more info. Its a great work wear option and I am very happy I made this purchase. As you can change it up and wear them with as separates with other items in your closet. So tell me are you fan of the pant suit, leave me a comment below!

 

Thanks for visiting and I will talk to you soon!,

Every Summer Has A Story…..

 

Summer Time

…And this year I was changing mine.  Last year this time I was not a happy camper with many areas of my  life. And I knew it was time for change. Realizing I was the only one who was going to be able to change it.  I knew a lot of hard work was ahead. Some would look at my life and say she has it good, what do she have to complain about.  But it always look good on the outside looking in.

Hello Spring!

Hello Spring!/Luxuriance Style

Spring is finally here! Well according to the astronomical calendar anyway.  I say this because when I look outside of my window, I’m seeing snow on the ground, and feeling 32 degree temperatures. But  Its Cleveland and this is the norm. What that also means, is that 90% of the time the snow and frigid temps will making an exit soon. None the less I am happy Spring has arrived. I can now come out of hibernation and start to put away the heavy winter coat, hat, gloves and Ugg boots. Not today, but I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. My scarves will be sticking around though the season. The transition of seasons is tricky and I am not trying to get sick. So I will continue to protect the neck. Im looking forward to revamping the closets with gorgeous fabrics and unexpected cuts. I will be breaking out the pretty pastels, floral prints, flowing dresses and skirts, and wearing my favorite floral scent. YES!  I am a little excited.. Are you?  I can’t wait to see the flowers bloom and sleeping through some April showers. I love thunderstorms, its my zen! It is also time to start the transition of my beauty routines. Since the harsh cold air is going away soon, my skin and hair  will need some different kind of love, so my regimen will be changing and I will be sharing those details. So, tell me why is  Spring your favorite season?  If not Spring which one and why?
