Have Some Pie

Editor’s Note:

We live such busy lives. From staying fabulous to working, being in a relationship, caring for family and running the world some days can be so hard and frustrating.
For me, running this blogzine site, a small business, family, and taking care of myself can sometimes be a challenge. Such a challenge that at times I question myself about what I am doing, why I am doing it, and why live such a busy lifestyle. Buy then I think of parting with certain projects and I just can’t. Why? Because everything I have created has been with passion and frankly, I love what I do.
So this week I had a lot of ups and downs and I had those “overwhelmed” feelings. With talks from good friends, hugs and kisses from my loved ones and … pie, I began to recover.
Yes pie. Like Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the MIB movies. It was that moment where my hubby asked so what would like to do? (He could tell I needed a night out for fresh air)

And I replied..

“Let’s go have some pie.”

As we had our pie and cups of coffee in a deserted Perkins restaurant, my mind went somewhere else. It was just us and pie.
Later that night, I checked my messages to see my creative director informed me that our traffic was increasing. Checking the mail I opened a box to find our new Jerseyfashionista buttons. All exciting stuff.
So you see, life can sometimes be overwhelming and sometimes we can definitely be handed lemons but we can’t let these things eat us alive because someone up there is watching and testing us to prepare us for bigger things.

Hard work does pay off, bad days don’t last forever and pie tastes great!

As the modern fashionistas we are today, these feelings are normal and almost inevitable in life. Next time you’re feeling down and overwhelmed, go ahead, have some pie. You deserve it.
Until next time lovelies!
Remember you are fabulous, don’t forget it 😉
