Fun Read: J’s Everyday Fashion & Faith

Hi All. Happy weekend! Currently, I am trying to get over a cold I’ve been dealing with all week. It went from zero to a hundred real quick which is terrible !! But I am hoping I get better and I can be productive this weekend.

Today, I am planning on going to a Humane Society of Tampa event and I am super excited to play around with my pup for few hours. Fingers crossed, my little one gets along with all the other pups out there including my friend who is tagging along with me ha. Just never know!

Today I wanted to share with y’all my thoughts on a book I recently read by Jeanette Johnson who happens to be a sorority sister of mine from a different chapter, liep! I was in Alpha Gamma Delta at FSU and she was an Alpha Gam at KU. Small world how that happens and it is pretty awesome how we connected through that one small factor and besides the both of us being bloggers.

I discovered Jeanette through my sorority’s quarterly magazine and their feature on her book. It seemed like it would be an interesting and fun read so I decided to get myself a copy both physical and audible to listen to on my commute to work. I was glad I did and it was fun to listen to Jeanette do the narrating for the book. J’s Everyday Fashion & Faith was an uplifting, stylish and faith based book.

I enjoyed her tips on how to style yourself, not worry about what others think and how to live your everyday life the way you want to live it and not how others want you to live it. Get my drift? We shouldn’t have to worry if we look good to someone else’s standards or think about being judged. For example, if I want to go to the grocery store after yoga in my workout clothes…then so be it! If I run into someone then they’ll obviously know I came from a workout. Now I would be dressing up for a gala because that’s a different ball game. But if I want to run to the mall with my hair in a bun and leggings then why should it matter to someone else?

Another factor I enjoyed was how Faith was tied into her life, style and writing. It wasn’t overbearing but it was positive and a wonderful outlook on how God sees us as well. I suggest reading this book if you’re looking for an easy read to brighten your day. Jeanette even includes excerpts from scriptures comparing to our everyday lives and how we are all equal in God’s eyes. It was a refreshing read to hear all of this from someone else besides my priest at my church.

I think if you’re looking for a lovely read to get you through the week, uplift your self esteem then this book is for you. Please let me know if you read it and what your thoughts are. Would love to hear from you. Have a wonderful day and weekend! xx
