Wow! I can’t believe it’s been ONE year since I launched V41! They say time flies when you’re having fun. Creating my blog this past year has been so exciting and self-fulfilling. I’m not sure what the future holds as far as my blogging is concerned, but I only hope for continued success. I enjoy blogging as a creative outlet. I use this platform to spread positive energy, clear my head and of course connect with other like minded individuals. I also wanted to create a space for individuals who appreciate designer and fashionable clothing on a budget.

If you’re a V41 newbie here’s a quick update about me. Last year, I quit my corporate job to start a career in the beauty industry. I took a leap of faith and followed what I felt was my purpose in life. So many doors and opportunities have opened up for me, which confirms I am heading in the right direction. I am letting God use me as a vessel to motivate, inspire and encourage people do what makes them happy and live their best life! 

This next year I plan to be more consistent with my content. Blogging is definitely a full-time job. There is so much planning that goes into each post. There's hair, make-up, location, outfit, weather plays a factor, time of day to get the best sunlight, uploading photos etc. In a perfect world, I would like to carve out a few hours a day to work solely on my blog.

There are just some colors that just make our melanin POP! And Chartreuse is one of them. This color is so vivid and electric. Chartreuse is a bold statement color. When I wear statement colors, I mute my accessories. This romper is MSGM from Neiman Marcus, my shoes are Jessica Simpson and my pewter clutch is BCBG.

I want to thank my husband for all of his assistance and support with V41. I would also like to thank all of my loyal readers who get inspired, motivated and fashion influence from my posts. I hope that you all will continue to grow with me on this amazing journey.
