End of the Summer Sales!!!

This BCBG two piece set is on sale for 50% of its original cost on BCBG.com RIGHT NOW!! But isn't the outfit just adorable. It's pretty, classic and contemporary at the same time.

A few of my favorite assets are the neck adornment, the fact that the top has a window pane back detail as well as a zipper and its cropped!

The A-line, front pleated, knee length skirt is the perfect understatement to an already showing midriff.

Go to your favorite retailer websites and look for items that are great buys because soon the sales will be over!

Make Every Day Count - Day 30!

To say that you are overwhelmed is to say that you have accepted the feeling of being overwhelmed by whatever is over powering you.

So literally when you say I am overwhelmed. That is saying, I commit to feeling inferior to the thing or things that I need to feel superior to. Because in order to accomplish or reach your goals, you have to be able to stand tall to the obstacles or what may seem like obstacles that are in your way, not feel like they are bigger than you.

Today's Make Every Day Count tip is for you to "decide" to be against feeling overwhelmed by your situation, and more like a star player that has practiced all year for this opportunity to get in the game and show what he's worked toward.

Make Every Day Count - Day 29!

Life happens and you have to adapt. As life happens and we try to live through it, the easiest way to make it through it or in other words make every day count, is to flow in the direction of life and NOT against it.

Monday, March 7, 2016

Make Every Day Count - Day 28!

In making every day count, know that you are powerful and are the direct line of action from God's word to creating the life that you want and deserve. Being average is not acceptable. But being famous does not translate to success. Sometimes fame is a by product of the line of work that you do, but not necessarily an indication of how well you are doing it.

If you walk in your destiny and in your truth the impact that you have on others is a great marker. Strive to impact the world in a positive way and I am pretty sure that you will be making every day count.

Fashion Prediction: Versace Fall 2016!

Today, I'd like to make a fashion prediction. After reviewing the Versace Fall 2016 Collection I believe that Rihanna will be seen in the colorful mink from the runway or a version there of.

I would also like to add that if it isn't Rihanna it will be someone with a style similar to hers like Rita Ora.

Let the countdown - to seeing celebs in the upcoming 2016 Fall fashions begin!!

Make Every Day Count - Day 26!

On this day, I'd like to say if you would like to join me in making every day count here is the advice for the day, don't call the game either way (win/lose) until the last buzzer sounds.

Why do I recommend that you wait until you consider yourself with a win or a loss? Because champions win games and sometimes champions lose. But one thing champions don't do is give up. And in order to fight until the end your mind must remain focused on the task. And that is to play to win and to fight until it's over.

In doing so, you are still in the present moment and working to make every day count!

Monday, February 22, 2016

Make Every Day Count - Day 25!!

Be unapologetic! Day 25's Make Every Day post is about how to be unapologetic in the pursuit of your destiny. Put God first and those people, places, and things that aren't aligned will fall by the way side. And there is no reaso to be sorry for it because God will handle the rest.

Make Every Day Count - Day 24!

How many times have you attempted to do something fresh and different, but you just end up right back where you started?

Two things could be happening there. The focus may need to be placed on the process of the exercise and not solely on the outcome.

Or it could be that instead of your thoughts being fresh and different they may need to be forward thoughts. 

You ask, how can you "Make Every Day Count?" And I respond, think for the future and not for the present.

Make Every Day Count - Day 23!!

Raise the bar for yourself if you want to Make Every Day count!! Increase the amount that you expect for yourself to accomplish on a regular schedule and watch how your output begins to adjust in a positive way.

Make Every Day Count - Day 22!

Do all things with love in order to make every day count. Does that mean that you will agree with everything, like everything or even agree to everything? No. But if you respond in truth and in love that is what matters. When you choose to respond in love you have made a commitment to respect and be courteous to whom or what you are responding to. I am sure that responding and doing things in love will help make every day count!

Making Every Day Count - Day 21!!

Let's take one more look at how we can Make Every Day Count! For the Day 21 post ensuring that you have limitless thinking in your approach to doing things, is one thing that has been on my mind to share with you all.

I am guilty of calling a task small, or saying oh it's just a little _____, or dismissing something that may be major to be something that is minor. But if you want to medc and move closer to your dreams you have to be able to see yourself doing things that are unimaginable and accept every step along the way as a stepping stone towards that goal. We never know how big something will be, so to call it small is reducing its potential and we definitely don't want to do that.

Remove the ceiling from your thoughts so that you can see yourself among the sun, moon and the stars in every action that you take.

Making Every Day Count - Day 20!!

The 20th Making Every Day Count blog post is about having good expectations in order to get through your day successfully. 



If you expect to have a good day from the moment that you rise, your actions should support that belief consciously and subconsciously. And the same goes for the opposite if you expect to have a bad day, sometimes just having a negative expectation will make having a bad day more likely.

So, on this day commit to having good and positive expectations. Believe that you will have a productive day. Believe that things will be better than yesterday with hopes of Making Every Day Count!!

I love writing this series. I hope that you enjoy reading it, don't forget to leave your comments and ideas or questions in the comments section. Also read the previous posts as well.

Make Every Day Count - Day 17!!

Making Every Day Count today and for the rest of your life is a process. It requires doing a number of things and understanding a series of principles. For this post I'd like to suggest that we count it all joy. The good, bad and indifferent. Remember that it ALL works together for the greater good of those who believe in him!

Make Every Day Count - Day 16!

In this 4th week of the Make Every Day Count series I'd like to point out that taking healthy breaks and enjoying a small amount of time doing what you love will help make every day count.

One of my favorite past times involves reviewing fashion and looking at clothing and beauty items on the Internet. This activity helps me unwind and refocus my attention on something else for awhile.

Begin to schedule breaks into your work schedule and life schedule for that matter and it will actually allow you to become more productive once you go back to your tasks.

Make Every Day Count - Day 15!!

Let your light shine! If we focus on living our life through our true self, walking in excellence and accepting of all of the attention that doing so will bring, we will free ourself and our mind up. Subconsciously sometimes our thoughts will plan small seeds of discourse in an attempt to discourage us from being great. But I am here to say, if we just live in excellence everyday, counting failures as mistakes and using the next moment to try again there will be no more time or energy used toward non productive thinking. We can use it all toward positive thinking, rebuilding and walking in the excellence that we already possess.

Make Every Day Count - Day 14!!

I am noticing that a lot of the principles that will help us make every day count are simple to think about but require a level of throughput from us that is not so simple to tap into.

Day 14's Make Every Day Count post is simply to rise and shine earlier. When you have many things that you need to accomplish during your day (like myself), we increase our risk of accomplishing those things by starting the day a little sooner than normal.

I hope that you are enjoying my Make Every Day Count series and I would love to hear from you in the comments section on what you feel will help m.e.d.c. and your opinion on the posts here.

Be blessed!

NSM Doll of the Day!!

Yesterday, Zendaya released a picture of herself in warm/neutral color make up and a golden bronze short crop cut and she looks amazing!! I love how Zandaya's style team switches things up for her and it always ends up looking well put together.

I would make the assumption that the cropped cut is a wig of some sort but I just love the style and fashion range that they play with for this young actress, singer, performer.

Zendaya you are my Notable Styles and More Doll of the Day!!

Make Every Day Count - Day 13!!!

Attention, attention! This Make Every Day Count post is uber important!! It is a simple thing that can make a big difference.

Network, talk with someone that you've never spoken to before and have a conversation, you never know whose who if you don't speak or talk to them.

I am almost certain that when you talk to that right person, you will be surprised at what you will find that the two of you can possibly collaborate on, work together on or form a team to accomplish!!

Let's make every day count by meeting and talking to people that you don't know or haven't met yet, so you can be one person closer to your next collaboration.

Make Every Day Count - Day 11!

In the effort to Make Every Day Count, do not allow your emotions to make decisions for you. Life is all about the experience (journey) and when situations arise it is in our best interest to go within, seek the kingdom of God and learn to problem solve through the situation. In doing this, you will not hand over valuable time to emotionally charged actions and you will be steady due to working on core things that really matter toward Making Every Day Count #medc.

Make Every Day Count - Day 10!

Do you know where you are going in life? Do you have a plan in place that will aid you in reaching that point? If you answered no, then you may be totally out of sorts with Making Every Day Count.

How can you honestly say that you are going to make every day count without knowing where you are going, how you are getting there and with whom?

In order to truly tap into this you must first access God. Allow him to be the guiding force of your life. Then be prepared to work on your plan, execute that plan and repeat. Make Every Day Count by working toward fulfilling your destiny. Tap into the instructions for your destiny and life by making God the head!

Please leave comments and feedback as well as your tips on Making Every Day Count!!

Make Every Day Count - Day 9!!

This is a catch up post, because I realized that I should have 9 posts total by the time Monday morning arrived. But please do not be alarmed this post will not be any less valuable or thoughtful than the other 8.

Today I would like to say in an effort to Make Every Day Count, do not be so entertained, thrilled or involved in the preparation for an action that you fail to reach or even complete the actual action.

I feel this is an important tip because pre-work, planning, etc is an important part to excellence and completion of some things. The amount of planning that goes into something can almost always be seen by looking at the final product. But for some, this can be an area where procrastination and/or distraction can occur due to some subconscious feelings about or toward actually doing the final action or producing the end product.

So Notable Stylers, in bringing this to your attention I would like for you to be aware to actually do necessary and direct pre production, pre work and planning for your actions. And there will not be a moment wasted in your day or getting in the way of Making Every Day Count.

Thank you for reading and please feel free to leave your comments, suggestions and ideas on how to make every day count or on how these tips have helped you.

Make Every Day Count - Day 8

The struggle is real, so to make every day count just think of this day and every day as grind time or the time to plant your seeds.

What is planted now, will be ready for harvest in 6 months to a year so there is no time to waste my friends.

Prepare the ground and let's sow some seeds. Matthew 13:1-9. What seeds have you sown or plan to?

Make Every Day Count - Day 7

Hold on hold on, group. It is still Wednesday in the Pacific Time zone so I can still squeeze in this Day 7 post. This message will be short and succinct. Tell yourself the truth about all things in order to make every day count.

Have you ever experienced talking yourself into doing something that you had previously made a decision about? If so, that is a total violation to your well being and productivity. To prevent this, go with your first instinct because it's almost always right. And it will certainly be a better choice than rethinking something that you have already made a decision about. This is almost the reverse effect of not facing the truth. You are changing the present and doing something that you may later regret. I once heard someone say, "Don't rehash the past, move forward fast." - Author Unknown

Being truthful with oneself requires that you are able to hold a mirror up and analyze the reflection. But NEVER beat yourself up or talk down to yourself. Just take note of things that you agree and/or disagree with and make actions regarding those things.

Let's Make Every Day Count guys, because tomorrow isn't promised.

Make Every Day Count - Day 6!!



Through the distractions, living, loving on others, and yourself, picking up the pieces and putting things together a key to making it all count and work is Focus!

If you feel overwhelmed at times, and things don't seem to stop coming at you, take a deep breath and tune in and focus. Focus is what has helped me reach the point of posting this article today and focus is what is going to help me through this stage and on to a stage where even more responsibility is demanded and required. 

So much is going on in this world today, that focus is required just to get through your day and be productive. Let's focus together and Make Every Day Count.

Make Every Day Count - Day 5

Today is the official observed holiday for the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s life. And I believe he is a prime example of how to make every day count. 

In the 39 years of Dr. MLK's life he graduated high school at age 15, reached the doctorate degree level of education, became a minister, found and married the love of his life (Coretta Scott-King), had children, fought for human rights - to the point that change followed, won a Nobel peace prize, and led people to stand for what they felt would be a more free society. I'd hate to see what he may have accomplished had he not been assassinated on April 4th, 1968 in Memphis, TN.

When I look at Dr. King's life he has a list of accomplishments (all of which are not included above) that allow me to feel a sense of confidence in my own ability to incite change and grateful for the fight that he fought, so that the generations after him could focus on and address issues of their own time.

If Dr. King were here today, I think that he would offer us simple yet key information in regards to reaching our goals and making every day count. I think that he would say, nothing happens overnight and every major feat, every win, every accomplishment starts with taking one step at a time, being consistent, disciplined and unstoppable in working toward it.

Make Every Day Count - Day 4!!



The theme of today's Make Every Day Count post is to have a structured routine but also remain flexible. In this day, there is a push to get more done in less time. And in order to do so, many people plan out their days, weeks, months and even years down to the last detail. But what about when life happens? How do you adapt when something happens that is beyond your control? When life happens you have to do deal with it. You can seamlessly welcome change and remain calm by attending the situation at hand. It doesn't take for ever to deal with an emergency situation. But after it is over you have to immediately go back to your schedule. So try not to get down when your day is not going as planned, adjust your actions according to the day, maybe move what you can to tomorrow and keep on moving.

Make Every Day Count - Day 3!!!



Whoa ladies and gentlemen, it's Day 3 of the Make Every Day Count campaign and I love writing this series. Today's message is about being intentional in your actions.

So let's go out and make this day and all of the rest of our days filled with purpose!!

Make Every Day Count - Day 2!

Hello all!! I would like to say what a day, what a day. Here in Indianapolis, the weather has a wind chill that is below 0 and a brisky outlook. But on the brighter side today, marks the beginning of a "warming trend" 👀..... I know right.

But anyhow, I would like to suggest in making every day count, that today we introduce a concept that I have read about before on sites like Forbes and Linked In, try to multitask less and finish all of one task prior to beginning another one.

In certain instances this may be difficult if you are in an environment where some things demand immediate attention. But even so, once those tasks are completed and you return to your regular tasks, complete all of one and then proceed to the next one.

I am going to start using an app that will allow me to log the time that I work on one task (for records and reporting purposes) which will indirectly assist me with finishing all of that task. See screenshot for ideas.

Make Every Day Count - Day 1!!

Today, I am launching a Make Every Day Count campaign via the lifestyle and inspirational blog Notable Styles and More! If you are new to this site, I post on a range of topics from fashion, to makeup, to celebrity children, to societal issues and more.

Make Every Day Count will be a series of posts to inspire you to get through your day. Today's post is about adding variety to your day by making a simple change to your routine. It's the thought that counts and in doing so, you are actively being in tune with your day.

I decided to bring one of the children's frog bowls to eat my lunch in. It will add color to my meal, allow me to use my imagination and act as a small reminder of my children.

It's perfect!!


Change something small into something entertaining by adding variety and making a simple change like I did.

Feel free to leave a comment on what you will or have done to add some excitement to one of your routines.

Cara Delevinge & The Importance Of Dressing Like A Guy

2015 saw fashion designers globally ditch all preconceived gender representations and redefine masculinity.
Women in menswear (or even women in trousers) has always been a controversial topic. Dating back to 1920s when Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel left the public horrified after leaving her home in a pair of slacks, to AW15 which saw style icon and model Cara Delevinge star in the DKNY menswear campaign.


In my opinion, Coco Chanel deserves a big thank you and a lot of recognition for the liberation of our wardrobes. She allowed us to shamelessly cover up our frost-bitten legs and without her; we may still be wearing dresses in December. Coco, I salute you.

Previous to starring in the DKNY men’s campaign, Cara Delevinge has always been an influencer in the fashion industry appearing suited and booted for a date with girlfriend; St Vincent.



But why is it we are suddenly borrowing style tips from the boys?

1     1. The shoes. Why suffer a night of crippling heels you can barely move in, flats have become so much more appealing. I suggest a stylish pair of leather brogues or maybe sport a pair of signature DKNY trainers.

2. The shirts. There’s something special about a tailored man’s shirt that looks great on women. The boxier cut and lengthy sleeves which are perfect to turn up helps to create a seemingly effortless and simple look. I suggest checking out Uniqlo.com for a huge range or shirts for both men and women, the Oxford shirt is a personal favorite of mine.

3. That ‘special’ boyfriend hoodie. Is the real reason we steal our men’s hoodies because we just love the way they smell? Nope! Oversized and under appreciated, there’s something so distinctively special about boy’s hoodies, the way they envelop our whole body or even the way they will maintain their softness wash after wash. For the biggest selection of ‘boyfriend’ hoodies and jumpers, fashion retailer Thomas Gun is definitely worth a look.


4. Saving the best until last; The Blazer. Blazers have now become a true staple item in any fashionista’s wardrobe. Fitted or oversized ‘boyfriend’, blazers can be styled and accessorized to be suitable for any occasion. Boyfriend style blazers give a borrowed look, while a fitted blazer gives a definite nod at a men’s suit jacket, while following the line of a woman’s body. For men’s blazers check out Zara & for women’s blazers at a bargain, check out ASOS.com
