Hey, hey, hey you beautiful souls!! Thank you so much for taking time to stop by the blog on this beautiful day. Today it’s all about your PERSONAL STYLE! Something short and sweet.

Towards the end of last year I was introduced to Kiyada Upshaw’s Personal Style E-book (you really need to check it out) by my blogger friend, Jaleesa of No Country For Old Trends. The thing that I loved about this book is that it’s short, sweet, and straight Continue reading

Strength, Courage, Wisdom + Streetstyle

“Inside my head there lives a dream that I want to see in the sun/Behind my eyes there lives a me that I’ve been hiding for much too long/’Cause
I’m scared of the judgement that may follow/Always putting off my living for tomorrow/It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my faith/ It’s been illusive for so long, but freedom is mine today/I’ve gotta step out on faith, It’s time to show my faith/Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found/Strength, courage, and wisdom/And it’s been inside of me all along/Strength, courage, and wisdom/ Inside of me” ~ India Arie (Strength, Courage, & Wisdom song lyrics) Continue reading

One Word

Hey you beautiful souls! Happy New Year to everyone, pray all is going well with you so far. For my first time visitors, welcome to I Am Petite Latoya. I hope you find something great here, and would return for even more. To everyone else, WELCOME BACK!!

Well, it snowed here in Atl, and I finally found time to write my first blog post of the year. YAY! Better late than never. Today is just a simple post to kick off an amazing 2017 year.

I’m starting to finally realize how important it is to have goals though! Last year I came across a devotion in the Bible app called One Word That Will Change Your Life. So glad that I did. For some, you have written resolutions in the past that has only lead to frustration and failure. We stray due to lack of encouragement, self-discipline, or the task seemed so far-fetched that we give up before we even try.

The old me would easily get side tracked, and come up with every excuse as to why I couldn’t complete a task. However, coming across this devotion actually helped me persevere during my difficult times last year. I have faith that my word “VICTORY” that I’ve chosen this year will help me overcome any roadblocks that try to deter me from my goals.   Continue reading
