Leo - Queen Of The Zodiac

Leo - Queen Of The Zodiac www.toyastales.blogspot.com

When it comes to my blog sometimes I only give half of myself. Usually, it is because I'm trying to please my readers more so than myself. Sometimes I get caught up with what I think you guys want to see or read about and that can lead me to stifle my own creativity. It is not you all's fault the blame is all on me. 

I try not to get caught up in that thought process but occasionally I will fall victim to it and I have to remind myself about why I started my blog in the first place, which was to share with the world the things I love most.

As you can see I am much happier when I do not restrain the little creative voices in my head and just go with my artistic flow ...  well as long as those voices do not lead me to cut off my ear like Van Gogh then we are all good. You may be wondering what lead to this bit of rambling and it is all because of a quote I ran across regarding my zodiac sign. It was called A Leo's Motto and it went a little something like this, " I'm not gonna change who I am so you're just gonna have to deal with it.". Yep, sounds about right. If you are a Leo like me or know someone who is I would imagine that this perfectly sums up our personality. If only my parents would have figured this out decades ago they would have had an easier time during my teenage years, but it is too late for that now so moving right along to today's outfit of the day. This is a celebratory set because my birthday is coming up soon (next Monday) and because I am a spoiled goddess I celebrate it for the full week leading up to the occasion. I'm crossing my fingers for sunny weather and looking forward to having a good time during this week's festivities. The outfit I'm showcasing today is full of one of my favorite things. Can you guess what it is? Stripes!!!! My closet is full of stripes. They are everywhere and for some reason, I keep buying things featuring stripes when I really do not need more of them in my wardrobe. But I guess I'm not going to change in that area so I'm dealing with it.

  1. I LOVE this post, LaToya! Mainly because YOU are in it and you are such a beauty. I love the set you've created in celebration of your birthday coming up. You're such a great writer, I love the ending of your post with the pun you included :) Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have the most amazing b-day week!



    1. Thank you Jalisa. I have been working on building my writing skills up so I'm glad you noticed the results. My birthday is my favorite holiday so I make a huge production out of it. Thank you for the birthday wishes!

  2. Great post my friend, thanks for sharing! <3 - http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com

  3. I am so happy that you're making more appearances on your blog, LaToya! And gurllll, you definitely know how to celebrate, a whole week leading up to your birthday?! LOL! Maybe I'll do that next year.

    My mum is Leo and you know what? That motto fits her perfectly. There have been times she's extremely difficult to be dealt with but the good definitely way outweigh the bad.

    1. I'm trying to show myself a bit more Shireen. Not quite comfortable with it yet though. Lol. Yes I do love to celebrate my birthday and it is the highlight of my year. You should give it a try next year for your birthday. You deserve it. Yep your Mum sounds like a Leo. We can be stubborn, opinionated, spoiled, loyal, passionate, nurturing, and fiercely protective of the people we love.

  4. This is such a great post! Thanks for sharing girl.

    XO, Jessi
