Watching a movie with my family and blogging, I'm loving this holiday season. I love spending time with my family because they keep me focused and remind me how far I've come. I ran into someone I went to high school with and she told me she keeps up with my blog, I thought that was the dopest thing! So hello and thank you for anyone who has read The B Word from the beginning or just clicking on for the first time, I appreciate all of you and all the love for the past year. 

I think New Years is one of my favorite, if not my favorite holiday, because it's a celebration of what has happened and what's to come. I've said that I make goals all the time but it's truly a time I look back and enjoy what has happened. I think 2015 was one of my best years yet. I can NOT wait to see what 2016 brings. 

AS for my last blog post of 2015, I wanted to post a NYE outfit option. I rarely dress in an understated manner so for New Years parties I'm usually in a gown haha! This dress is from ASOS and comes with the gold collar. I loved it and had to have it!

Cheers to an amazing year of blogging and to many more ++ Let's open the champagne and I'll see you in 2016. Follow me on Instagram to see what I'm wearing for NYE and more outfits

Going Off

When we shot this look, we kept joking that this is Brianna on the go. For the blog I usually wear heels, that's not my everyday. If it's not sneakers, my feet aren't feeling me. 

I've been thinking a lot about self worth this week. Understanding that you are worth as much as you ask for is a powerful tool. I'm so grateful for all the amazing things that 2015 brought. I'm talking the good, bad and the ugly because without every situation I wouldn't be in the place I am now and I wouldn't be able to ask even more of 2016. 

Please look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you're worth it because you are SO beyond worth it ++

Where did this year go? It's the holidays already and I'm over here thinking it's July. I'm really into making goals and resolutions for the new year but I really do it all the time. I make monthly goals, weekly goals. It really helps me feel like I'm moving in the right direction. Having this blog history, for almost a full year now, is an even better way to look back at the last year and see how I can better myself in the next year. I've been trying to lay low the past couple months because of some pretty serious health issues but I'm seeing the light at end of the tunnel after what seems like 7 months of sitting in doctors offices getting tested. I already starting to vision board for the 2016. Big things to come for all of us. I truly believe that ++

In my last post I talked about pushing myself and putting myself out there with fashion and in all area of my life. Note I never show my belly button, making some small steps haha

Lane Change

There are a 7.2 billion people in this world. I sometimes get overwhelmed with how I'm going to make a difference or stand out. This is especially true when it comes to blogging. It feels like everyone is blogging and I could get lost in the sea of content. What would make me stand out? What could make people click on The B Word? I've come to the conclusion that it's my voice. I can't be what these other amazing bloggers are because that's their own shine, their own lane. Being authentic to ourselves is our most powerful tool. What do we have to say? What do we think? What does our own lane look like? That unique perspective is what we each have to offer to the world.
Today we shot some outfits and I pushed myself to put together looks that felt like me. I'm not interested in doing anything that feels anyway different. Once a professor told me, "Don't chase fame and fortune, chase your passion and fame and fortune will chase you". That's something I'll never forget. Follow your passion, keep your voice and create your own lane ++
