This black on black look has to be my favorite look ever. I wore this look for a work dinner with clients and received so many compliments. Pairing a basic turtle neck sweater with a pair of Wide Leg palazzo pants creates the perfect conservative-chic-comfort balance.

Last month, I had the opportunity to visit Puerto Rico. Everything about the Island made me feel at home. The food was delicious, the beaches were crystal clear, and the people were filled with joy.
My favorite part about our vacation was visiting El Morro (pictured below). El Morro consists of the remains of what used to be a military base. Great battles between the British, The French and Spaniards took place there. People from all over come to admire it's beauty.
There is so much beauty in history. This place is beautiful for what it used to be, for the battles that it survived, and for what it has become over the years. While exploring El Morro, I couldn't help but reflect about my own life, the battles I have fought and the ones I am still fighting. Sometimes, life feels like one big battle after another, and there are days I feel like giving up, but on those days I hold on to the Word of God. The Lord says: resist the enemy and he shall flee (James 4:7).
On those days where I have no strength left in me, I make the choice to just resist the urge of giving up. Someday the battles within me will be over, and I will be able to rejoice in my history, the history of what once used to be and the beauty of what I have become.

I don't usually write posts like this one, but it’s a good way to check in and record everyday life. Here it is, if you would like to read...
Lately, I have been:
Watching The Good Wife. Let’s talk about Peter Florrick (Chris Noth)for a second, how good looking is he?! Here is a photo of Chris Noth when he was younger. He has aged so well.
Reading The Book Thief and The Really Bad Girls of theBible. I am equally obsessed with these books. The Book Thief is a novel about death and has so many amazing hidden messages, while the Really Bad Girls of the Bible relates everyday life to the bible stories of some extraordinary women whose lives where changed by Christ. A must read if you are into happy endings!
Eating rice pudding and chicken breast. Can we take a moment to talk about chicken breast. Those who know me are aware of my love and hate relationship with meat. I was a vegetarian and self acclaimed animals activist for several years and sometimes find myself having a hard time enjoying meat. Lately, I have been craving it more and enjoying it more. This is a good thing, considering chicken is a great source of protein and I need to increase my intake.
Wearing these pants, none stop. They are so comfortable I have had them in rotation with basic summer tops and statement necklaces.
Looking for things to do during the weekend. I have difficulty making time to do fun activities due to my hectic schedule, but I am trying to fit in as many fun activities as possible before summer ends. A couple of weeks ago, my sister and I took the Newport boat ride around the harbor, where I took this beautiful photo.
Thinking about how merciful God has been to me. Sometimes I get anxious about all my responsibilities and about the big doors God has opened for me, but then I remember how faithful He has been in the past. His faithfulness in the past is a prophecy of his continued help and providence in the future.
Planning my trip for Puerto Rico next month and my birthday week. Hello, 26! (insert excited)
Using this Benefit Pore Minimizing balm. Obsessed doesn’t begin to describe how I feel about it. My make up looks smoother and lasts longer.
Loving these Valentino shoes, and considering them as a birthday present, from me to me.
