Hey Y'all! Welcome to my blog! 

Hao & Lura in Chicago, April 2014

Lura & Hao, Christmas 2014

I currently teach 7th grade English/Language Arts at a local charter school and I adore it! There's never a dull day in middle school :)
I also run a small business,  Day-to-Day Style, which helps women cater their wardrobe to their lives. Life is always better when you're in a cute outfit!
I am attending UNCG (University of North Carolina at Greensboro) to earn a Master of Education in Teacher Education. So, I am one busy gal! But I like it that way. I also make sure that I take Sundays off to spend time with Hao and to recuperate from the week! 

I love to organize and decorate. I do it in my "spare time". I'm obsessed with clothes. I sporadically get in moods where I pick out outfits for hours. {if you need styling services, you can find more about that here.} Another love of mine is traveling. My hubs, Hao, and I have been traveling for a while, and will continue to do so until we start to have a family. And let's be serious... we probably won't stop then! The most important thing in my life is my faith. It's what gets me through the crazy days of being a teacher, small business owner, wife, and woman... ya know, with all our crazy emotions and all ;) Haha.

Some other things I love:

>>Diet Coke. And milk.
>>Black tea.
>>anything chevron. or yellow. or pink.
>>Clothes that make my thighs looks small.
>>Heels. And riding boots.
>>fall. it's the BEST time of the year!!
>>Leopard print.
>>Bacon. Chocolate.
>>Being crafty {I'm not really good at it, though}
>>Talking. I throughly enjoy having a good, deep conversation.
>>My sorority, Sigma Kappa
>>Laughing. It does a lotta good when life is tough.
>>Learning. I never want to stop. Ever.
>>Jeans. Comfy and cute.
>>Anything sweet, especially chocolate.
>>dancing around my house like a crazy person and singing really loud
>>anything for leftys, since i am one.
>>McDonald's. I crave it sometimes.
>>Shopping. Me=shopaholic... but I'm working on it.
>>Reading. Books are my BFF. They help me relax and process life.

In August 2013, I married the perfect man for me. I wish I could  re-live this day over & over again. you can read more about that here.

Our honeymoon was to Turks&Caicos. you can find that post here.

This blog is being written to inspire others. It's the small things in life that really make the day-to-day seem worthwhile. This is a place for you to come and be filled. This is a place to glorify God in small ways and in big ones.

The style tab will you will see my outfit posts. I try to post my outfits once a week! 

Under the faith tab, you'll see some inspiration from my faith. I am a Christian and I love Jesus. Do I want to force my beliefs on you? Absolutely not! I just want you to leave here feeling a little bit better than when ya got here.

The teaching tab is where you will find my experiences teaching middle school. You will find videos of new things I'm trying, to funny experiences & random advice. Teaching is something I am truly passionate about, so I want to share it with you! Also, check out my Teachers Pay Teachers store

Lastly, under the life tab you will see my life, basically. You'll see beauty tips, my attempts at cooking, Hao & I's travels, home tips, & diy/tutorials. 

If you're looking for a specific topic, scroll down and check out the right column and you'll find the labels, which lists out specific topics. Overall, this blog is about sharing my thoughts as I grow in my walk with the Lord and be the light on a hill that I am called to be. 

"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. {Matthew 5:14-16}

ps- since this blog is about positivity, all negative posts will be  deleted.

But now I am glad I read your "about me" to learn more about who you are. You and your husband make a very cute pair. Needless to say, I will stop by again and you got a new fan and follower.
