Hey My Royal Family!
My everyday bag is almost the size of a travel tote!
I have so much thrown in there, because I feel I may need it on any given day!
Truth is.. I usually don't use them for weeks!
LOL! But I keep it all... just in case!
Occasionally, that luggage becomes annoying or
I have to go out in a cute outfit &
my tote may be overpowering.
It's time for my clutch purse!
Here's a look at what's almost always in my clutch:
(and read on, let me tell you about it all)
even though we live in a plastic world, cash is still king.
And on days when I decide to leave my vehicle parked &
depend on UBER or a friend,
my parents taught me to always carry
(that's a Jamaican term that applies to
money carried in case of an emergency or
a change in someone's attitude.
2- Extra Battery:
Between scrolling through Instagram (@TheQueenEsmari),
snapping on SnapChat (@TheQueenEsmari),
responding to calls & texts,
my battery gets low on me.
A quick switch of the case & boom!
Charging & back in business!
You'd be surprised at how many times
a pen comes in handy,
even in this digital age!
Plus, I still love to write.
4- Card Wallet:
I keep my license, credit card &
important small documents in here.
5- Compact Mirror:
On one of my many trips to ALDO
a few years ago, I was gifted this
pink glittery mirror &
it's the perfect size to keep
in any of my bags.
6- Business Cards:
I'm building my brand &
I love to talk about all the wonderful things
I have in store for it.
I leave cards with anyone willing to listen.
This little Vaseline pot is a life saver!
Moisturize on the go..
The Cocoa Butter flavor is my fave.
8- Cuticle Nipper:
Sometimes when I'm out, I'd look at
my hands & see that in between visits to the nailery
my cuticles need attention..
I like to clean it up right away!
9- My 'Go-To' Lip Combo:
For my perfect nude,
I combine NYX High Voltage Lipstick #5
with NYX Butter Gloss Praline
So there u have it!
I'll show you what's in my tote soon!
And remember, Royals!
Let your bags be in your hands,
not on your face! lol
If you wake up without goals,
Go Back to Sleep!
Sometimes we lose some of our 'mojo' &
find ourselves going through our days with no real long term goals in mind.
Well, I've been there--
and thankfully, I can realize it and snap right out of it &
get back to my priorities!
I have several immediate ambitions like:
managing my time better,
staying away from stressful situations
managing & building my finances.
But ultimately, my greatest goal is to
change the world!
It may seem impossible to some & moving slow to others--
But it's an upward climb!
And if you don't believe me,
PS- I found this pillow set @ Home Goods!
As I grow, I learned to cultivate the strength it takes to get up and face another day, every day.
I have learned that it is my duty to have a happy life, even with great sorrow in my heart.
Physically, the body can be going just fine-- it's the mind that has the problem.
I allow myself to feel whatever it is I feel... when I feel it.
And once I remember my obligation to my well being, my self-worth...
I'd say to myself:
If you can't climb out, dig out.
Just Being Real..
A Weekend in Houston
Royals! I've missed you!
Since we last 'spoke', I took a quick biz trip to Houston, Texas!
The last time I was in Houston, I was able to meet some great people
and I am proud to have those relationships flourishing
and producing some much needed change in my life!
I'm sure you will all tag along for the ride and see
what God has in store.
I managed to squeeze in some DELICIOUS food
and great sights while in H-Town!
Pappadeaux's: My ALL TIME FAVE
The Del Frisco's Grille staff was so welcoming and accommodating!
(Little known fact about me:
I'm allergic to strawberries
and they were so happy to redo my breakfast
after it came to me covered in kryptonite! lol
Needless to say: Bobby and I were not tooooo excited about leaving the
warmth of Houston! lol
Nonetheless, we're back in the NY groove!
Oh! Follow me on Snap Chat!!!
U would have had a front row seat on a whole lot of everyday fun!
Also, I did my first Periscope on this trip!
I look forward to sharing much more with you all!
Enjoy your day!
Make it Royal!
