The Mogul | 1st day of school

Whelp my baby is entering her last year of Jr. High so I'll be doing lots of documenting this year.  First up is the 1st day of school picture and a list of some of her current favorites.  I'll be doing one 1/2 way through and then at the end of the school year.  Someone pass the tissue please!

Momager Dopeness | Stripes and Bikinis

I was famously 40 (or over) sporting Forever 21 this weekend.  We took a one-dayer to Palm Springs and I rocked two of my most recent OOTD looks from the retailer.  I must have passed by this stripe
dress several times before I decided to try it on.  I kept thinking A) It's too short B) It's going to fit too snug and C) STRIPES, I'm gonna look like a zebra.  But I couldn't have been more wrong.  Yes it's short and for sure it's snug but in all the right places.  The stripes just add a bit of cuteness.  This was my traveling outfit and it was ultra comfy.  I think I'm actually going to go back and get a few more because they have several other colors and a few more stripe selections.  Do it Curvy Momager.

When we made it there it was time to hit the pool.  In 104 degree weather not much else to do.  I picked up this haute pink bikini (nope not a tanktini) during the winter season at Forever 21 and

wondered where I was gonna wear it.  Palm Springs, perfect opportunity.  The ruffles provide a little bit of camouflage but also the cutest accent.  Oh la la I think I've found my favorite swimsuit.  I didn't ever worry about wearing my coverup from my lounge chair to the pool stairs.  Confident curves, took me a minute but I made it.

Momager Dopeness | Boss Women Pray

I have to give major props to Jennifer from Pink Foundation and Single Mom Sage for adding me to her book club in July.  It was a book that not only changed the way I thought about my blogging business but my Curvy Momager brand overall.  It provided me with not only foresight but got me energized to start a major part of my brand that I've been putting off for over a year.

The book is Boss Women Pray by Kachelle Kelly.  You can order directly from her website or download on Amazon, which is what I did.  Each day Kachelle has offered a prayer and an inspiration writing on a topic pertaining to growing your business from a spiritual perspective.  At the end of each inspiration there are also biblical references to help provide more justification for the readings.

One of my favorite days was Day 26 Prayer for Effective Marketing & Massive Exposure.  A part of the prayer reads:

"I sometimes get discourage when it seems I will never have the chance to share my passion on a larger scale.  But then I remember that You are on my side and that You cause all things to happen in perfect timing."

What an amazing reminder of how we are not in control and God is!  Then one of the biblical references for that day was 1 Corinthians 2:9:

Get this book!  I can not tell you how excited I was to be invited to this book club.  You can even have one yourself.  Invite women that are on a journey in business or thinking about opening a business and join in on some conversation after each day.  You can even do it on social media or via text!  It will really help you #activateyourhustle.

Social Media Fast | Aha Moments

Last week I completed a 24-hour social media fast. Facebook, Instagram and sniff, sniff, sniff Twitter.  It was a pretty long 24 hours.  I think I even went to bed early ya'll.  It's amazing how much SM is a total part of my life.  I did learn a few things however and just to get you hyped about trying it yourself, I'm sharing my Aha List from a Social Media Fast.

I will admit this wasn't an easy thing.  I mean I had to put my phone in my purse during the day and in the living room at night.  It's bad ya'll.  Special thanks to @danachanel that I follow on Instagram.  If you need that Sprinkle of Jesus in your life she is the gal to follow.

Yes I'll be doing it again because it really was refreshing to not hear that buzzing and notification ring every second on my phone although it was missed.  What do they say absence makes the heart grow fonder!  The Mogul even questioned, "Mom is your phone broke?"  Yeah I think I need to unplug a little more often.

Signing off for now...just off the blog not social media!  [Insert praising the Lord emoji here]
