Written By: Saeeda RuffinPandemic doldrums. They have made most of us a little quieter — a little more reserved. It has been more than a year since virtually everything in the world came to a screeching halt. As the world slowly reopens, the excitement is mounting. It feels as if there’s a whole different world/life/you out there just waiting to be discovered! No doubt about it, Sis, the vibe now is not only about reclaiming your time, it’s also about rediscovering and even redefining the things that make you feel happy and fulfilled.SPARKLE AND SHINEWear accessories that command attention! Get them checking you out from head to toe. Your Izzy and Liv Anklet and Layered Necklace will most certainly make that happen for you. They will add just the right amount of finesse to your wardrobe this summer. Be prepared for all eyes to be on you. They won’t be able to help it.ABANDON THE OLD AND EMBRACE THE NEWIt may be time to update your wardrobe. Nothing says “I’m here” more than a new ’fit. Summer will bring the heat, so choose flattering ensembles that accentuate all the “right” areas. Take this time to rediscover fashion and try to break free from the less-than-fly “covid isolation” gear many of us have grown accustomed to sporting. No more, Sis! One look that never fails is a soft and free-flowing style. Your Izzy and Liv maxi dress is totally that, and when you wear it, cuteness will ensue, for sure!BE-YOU-TIFYNo doubt about it, Sis, you are beautiful. Nevertheless, we like to add a little bit of flava to our look sometimes. Now is the perfect time to try some different makeup techniques. No, that does not mean you need to beat your face every day — but you can if it makes you feel even more beautiful. Bottom line: the way you feel on the inside should resonate on the outside, so give them face. Give them fabulous, Queen!STEP OUT THE ORDINARYThe world has been dormant for way too long. This summer, do that thing you have always wanted to do, then let folks know that you did it. That’s right! If you want to skydive. Do it! If you want to learn to play chess. Do it! Never learned but always wanted to be able to swim? Do it! If the pandemic hasn’t taught us anything else, it’s taught us to not take opportunities to live life out loud for granted. So, think of it as making up for lost time and get out there. Turn up the volume on your life! Go ahead and do things BIG, have fantastic fun and delve into phenomenal new experiences. Your life will be amazingly amplified!
