DKNY Sport

by Lauren Corbett


I’m baaaaaccckk! It feels good to be back doing what I love! The last time I published a blog post was on New Year’s Eve and I was talking about my business resolutions for 2019. Let’s just say I didn’t keep those resolutions. Haha. I hope to tell you why I took an 8-month break soon, but I will say that no one and nothing can take away from the purpose that God has for your life! When He speaks to you…listen (we will talk about this later).

Now, let’s discuss this outfit! Yes, I know it’s still summer and it’s blazin’ outside, but I had to take pictures in this tough fit! I found this DKNY Sport Logo Print Jacket and Reflective Logo Tank Top at Macy’s in July. Macy’s was having their Black Friday in July sale. Usually, I don’t shop at Macy’s, but I had a $25 gift card that I never used, so I decided to buy this cute active ensemble. I do not remember the original price of the garments, but I do know that my total came up to $60. In my opinion, that wasn’t too bad for a DKNY outfit. The jacket is great for when it is raining and it can be used as a windbreaker.

My black and white exposed seam leggings (similar) come from a little teeny bopper store at my local mall. These are perfect for those who are exercise regularly because they are breathable, stretchy, and comfortable. There are slit two pockets on each side as well. These pockets can be used for holding your phone or keys.

My 2016 Balenciaga Speed Trainer sneakers were actually my mother’s, but she gave them to me because they were too big for her. Let me tell you, these sneakers are so comfortable! There is another version of the Speed Trainer sneaker, which has a black and white sole.

Do you like this outfit? Leave a comment. Also, I am trying to experiment with my writing style for the blog. Do you appreciate my outfit described posts or encouraging posts? Let me know :)

Love.

by Lauren Corbett


This post went completely left field from what I initially planned on writing, but I'll just go with the flow. 

Love. Love is such a strong word and people use it all the time yet when asked their definition of love, they either don't know or associate it with hearts, Valentine's Day, the colors red and pink, and etc. You hear pubescent middle schoolers say it loosely to their new boyfriend/girlfriend in the hallways, a married couple say it to each other when parting ways to go to work, individuals say it to each other to end a phone conversation, and so many other situations. There are different types of love too. Love between a wife and husband, boyfriend and girlfriend, parents and children, friends, God and his children, and others. But again, what is love? How can we define love? 

When I was younger, when asked my definition of love, I would say that it was an intense feeling that people had for one another. In my grandmother's house in the kitchen, there was a picture of hearts and within each heart was a sentence from a bible verse about the meaning of love. That bible verse was 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

At the time, I didn't fully understand it because I was so young, but I finally grasped the meaning as I got older and formed a relationship with a very caring man (pictured in this post). This may not be everyone's definition of love, but this is mine.

What is your definition of love?
