Had so much fun interviewing @ryan_matt02 today about being part of the @bananarepublic Men's Style Council and the introduction of the Rapid Movement Chino. Matt is a total class act. So friendly and handsome. @atlantafalcons and our city are lucky to have him. #lcmstylefile #itsbanana

I’ve always known nature will lovingly help decorate your living space if you let it. The pine cones on my mantle are special because one came from our yard (I used it at Christmastime and kept it in the mantle mix) and the small, perfectly shaped addition was right by my drivers side car door when I came out of @ADAC one day last year. (If you take time to actually notice people, places and things around you, your life will be elevated on many levels!) Crystals and geodes offer positive vibes in addition to being awesome eye candy. My husband and I have added to our collection over the years. I bought this amethyst starburst geode on the acrylic stand as a birthday gift for myself 3 years ago at the @horchow pop shop at @neimanmarcus @lenoxsqmall. I remember receiving the Horchow catalog when I was younger and I thought its contents so chic and glamorous. My husband and I love birds and the feather is from an owl that hung out in our yard all afternoon until early evening. As it finally flew away the feather landed on the handrail of our deck right in front of us. The blue green vases were purchased a few years ago when we visited the Asheville Craft Fair with our friends who live in Spartanburg, SC. Their natural beauty and the process behind creating them inspires me daily. In my kitchen I have this lovely vignette to bring me joy - more of nature that found its way into our home. First of all this niche was designed and built by my husband with wood that was in our basement when we bought this house. There is a similar niche in the main hallway and we used it as a springboard for this one one in the kitchen. Personally, I love plants in the kitchen! I Iove plants in every room! This cheerful yellow plant pot was given to me by a friend who know my love of plants and flowers and of the color yellow. All the rocks on the lower shelf came from a creek we stopped to enjoy on our adventure to the Grand Canyon, leaving from Scottsdale, AZ. I feel blessed to see them each day and be reminded of that trip. I guess it’s fair to say living with nature is second nature to us. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

One activity that I love while being a voyeur on the river is boat watching. For some reason watching these machines sail along the river places me in a mood that allows me to meditate, think, and get inspired. I love to develop stories for these mini ships as they make their way to Jersey or along the lines of the Hudson River Ride! www.TheBlakkDahlia.com.

Where’s the other flag? A peaceful moment, lucky to get the shot and to have the view.
You have to force yourself sometimes to take in good things. When we feel down or depressed it’s imperative to do so. Happy isn’t a right, it’s earned.
That’s what kids need to be taught.
You model the behavior for anyone around you.

Friday mood: prosecco and blue lipstick.

Don’t settle for “good”. It’s ok to do without the “good” to be available for the “great”!

@chantecaille Lip Sleek offers sheer color and intense hydration. And I am a sucker for the super chic packaging! Isn’t it glam?? ❤️💕😍

i have such an encouraging book to share with you! i haven’t even read past page 2 because there is so much to think and write about. this book is called “let God fight your battles” by @joycemeyer. mainly this book talks about finding peace in storms and how to trust God even more during the rough times in life. “ you shall not need to fight in this battle; take your positions, stand still, and see the deliverance of the Lord (who is) with you...” 2 chronicles 20:17
we shouldn’t need to fight our battles because the Lord will fight for us and deliverance from whatever situation we’re going thru. the last point that really stood out to me was about fear because honestly fear can control your life in ways you never could imagined, but this passage that joyce meyer talks about really states that we shouldn’t let fear take over our lives but that wed should live boldly and confident in God! “God wants us to be totally free from fear. he does not want us to live i torment, and he does not want fear to stop us from confidently doing what he leads us to do. when we have a deep understanding of God’s perfect unconditional love for your w, we realize he will always take care of everything that concerns us.” so don’t let fear stop you from what God wants you to do, don’t be afraid to step out, and don’t be fearful of what tomorrow brings instead focus on what God has for you today. we should be FEARLESS✨

An afternoon filled with thoughtful fashion... That's what it was today at the 12th edition of @purnamindia 's summer festive exhibition... And as promised @saritabaluja (her ikat sari was 😍), @indugupta912 , @sarojbhatia7 and @jani.dhingra put up a splendid show where designers, craftspeople and artists came together offering the best of responsible fashion, food, art and craft to Delhi's cognoscenti... Swipe on to see vignettes that I captured over the afternoon...
There was breathtaking ikat weaves by @officialmadhujain ... I met the humble and immensely talented Madhubani artist, Bagesh from Bihar...
There was too much prettiness in the form of handwoven saris from Banaras and Bengal (#ayumi #colourfabkolkata & #tilottamacreations)...
And yes, I also met friends and peers who never fail to add to the fun...
And now that it's over, looking forward to the next Purnam showcase... Let the earth revolve faster, if I may say so...
For the afternoon I wore a lovely baatik silk kota by @vidhi_singhania .
