As my countdown come to a close, I’m truly feeling myself. I’m realizing that turning 30 isn’t so bad after all. Besides, I haven’t felt more confident and sexier in my life. The saying, “age is just a number,” sounds so cliche’ but it’s the truth! The things that I have experience this past year and the blessings that God has presented me is nothing short of amazing. With age comes wisdom and beauty; and I am ready for whatever it has to bring.
Saturday I did a shoot with the amazing Rhayna C. I can’t tell you how much fun it was to work with her. She captured each moment that I had described perfectly and professionally. Not to mention she was patient with me and my two year old daughter Marlei who wanted to jump in every picture. HA! I had to share this cover-up that was thrifted by the Goodwill Queen Fonda. I am preparing for my 30th birthday getaway to Rivera Maya this week and was looking for a sexy cover-up to take with me. I saw a few online, but they were way too overpriced. One of Fonda’s visits to Atlanta a month ago turned into a teaching session at one of her favorite places; Goodwill. There happen to be one across the street from my house where I only visit to drop off old clothes. She dragged me into the store and showed me how to thrift and what to look for. She stumbled across this beautiful cover-up and I was sold. I couldn’t believe she had found exactly what I was looking for, but for a fraction of the price. This cover-up was a whopping $3 BUCKS compared to $50-$100 I had seen online. The older I get, the more I realize that lavish spending isn’t necessary all the time. There is always a cheaper alternative out there somewhere; you just have to look for it.
This shoot was very special because it not only conveys my transition to the next stage of my life, but I found the look I wanted for a very low price. If you are looking for a sexy look for the water, a sheer cover- up will do the trick. Ladies embrace your beauty no matter what size you are. Besides, self-love is the best love, and I am loving me each and every day.
If you are in need of anything and not looking to spend your life savings on it, please hit up the Goodwill Queen Fonda. I promise you, she can turn what was once someone’s trash into your newest treasure. Also, check out the amazing Rhayna C Photography. #SHETHORO
