2016 …The Year that was…

Hello sunshines

It’s been a moment and I have missed you so.Thought I should write you guys and loop you in on what’s been keeping me away.

So last  year was quite a year for me and saw me on the 9th of December celebrating a year in my fashion brand ISABEL COSA. Follow me on Instagram! Username: isabelcosa

It’s been a year of learning, stretching,crying and deep deep laughter. building a business from scratch out of nothing took guts, took focus, passion, determination and buckets  of faith that God has me. And He has been quite fantastically faithful to me!

I met young people who took my hand firmly in theirs and held me up when I fell…tired. You know who you are…thank you

Here’s an attempt to sum up a year in pictures…

My Spring Wishlist

Hello Sunshines,

It’s been far too long since our last chit chat and I have missed your light! I have been well, and super busy with building the empire. I will be launching my spring/summer collection later in the year so stayed tuned for that…it’s pretty exciting news for me.

So today’s post is all about Spring (the season and the store). I have checked out their website and picked out a few outfit combinations I am wishing for come spring ( a girl can wish and who knows they might just come true)! So without further adue let’s shop:

GIRL’S NIGHT OUT

Me and my girls always bring it when we go out. We believe it’s important to look good for you. So here’s my outfit choice combination

What I love from this combo is the throwback to the 70s which is hot right now, the girly and flirty feel of the romper and the accessories make for the perfect outfit.

THE DATE

Once in a while it’s impotant to go for a date and do something new with your partner. I love to always wear black as it is timeless on such occassions and sexy without being trashy

I love the sexy tassels on these heels they are so feminine and complement the dres to the T. The accessories help bring a hardness to the outfit and balance to an otherwise too girly combo, making it fit for a woman.

THE BEACH BREAK

I love the ocean and every minute i can spare I love to just go and look at the waves crash and taste the salt in the air. Don’t forget your sunscreen and remember to hydrate.

Hope these outfits inspire you. You can shop these loooks and many more at www.spring.com . 

All images used cutsey of spring.com. Thank you Bri for asking me to write this post, it was an absolute pleasure.As always God bless, till the next post.

Stay chic and beautiful,

Love Lessons

Hello Sunshine’s,

Its February and love is in the air. So I thought it would be a good time for us to talk about the lessons I have learned or had to relearn.

So here’s my top Lessons on Love

1. You can’t love from a broken place

It’s quite the norm for us ladies to expect that a relationship will bring us joy and happiness. There’s nothing wrong with wanting happiness, the only problem is getting into a new relationship with wounds from the past. If your last relationship broke you, allow God to heal you first, be happy alone and you will be able to give & accept love without punishing your new man for sins he didn’t commit. A healthy relationship is made up of two whole individuals.

2. Love is what remains when the butterflies die in your stomach.

Love is very different from attraction. We may like the way a person looks or dresses and this may draw us to them. Love is what happens when you are OK with the parts of someone that will never change, their character. And this is only found over time, when both of you make a deliberate decision to spend time together and stick together even in disagreement. Love is unselfish

3. Keep Talking

It of great importance to continue speaking to one another. If the conversation is stopped, assumptions creep in and a small hiccup can become a mountain in minutes and I am also guilty of this( working on it). Be open, be candid about how a certain thing is making you feel so your partner knows how you function.

4. Its a Give & Take thing

Allow yourself to be vulnerable. Vulnerability is not a weakness but a strength. Only those who are true to themselves can allow to be vulnerable and this builds trust. Give of yourself, if it works well good for you but if it doesn’t at least you were true to yourself and will have no regrets.

I am by no ways a professional life coach, I’m just sharing from my experiences and from the people close to me. I wish you all the love in the world not just on Valentine’s Day but all year round.

As always God bless, stay chic and beautiful
