Do Childhood Paradigms Dictate Your Future?

Read More

At what point in our lives do we let childhood paradigms dictate the choices we make to follow our dreams? I am a firm believer in the common phrase that God does not give a person an idea/dream if he doesn’t think he/she can make it happen. Many of us have shifted away from our chance to living out our passions and desires, life’s full potential, due to past paradigms…

Does Age Really Matter?

Read More

When it comes down to relationships, what role does age really play a part? Well, I have to conclude from my own personal experience, that age does matter. My last relationship was with a man 16 years my senior, and needless to say, it didn’t work out. I think when you decide to date someone outside the 10 year age gap the relationship is vulnerable to generational differences. At most times,…

Living Life Without Overthinking It

Read More

Too often I witness friends over-analyzing situations, and sometimes I am guilty of it too, but I try to be aware of my thoughts and not let my mind take over. In general, our minds have a negative connotation when reflecting on one’s self-position. We allow our minds to wander into “what could be” scenarios that prevent us from really living life, and many of times, creating your own fear…

3 Ways to Wear a Bomber

Read More

Let’s face it, bomber jackets are the bomb. They are infamous in the fashion world because they create flexibility. Designers and stylists are on a trend right now where everything should look effortlessly put together. Styling casual bombers with dressy looks aren’t uncommon these days because everyone is focusing on new perspectives. Pairing items together that one wouldn’t normally do creates an “unexpectedness” that adds a unique value to almost any look….

Parenting Demands and Daily Shortcuts

Read More

I know there are many of you who can relate to lack of time. I happen to be a working mother, which means the pressure is on to face all types of demands: getting yourself ready and your kid to leave for work and school on time, packing lunchboxes, helping with homework, doing projects (let’s face it, until a certain age, it’s the parents doing them), plus all the other…

How to Dress Playfully

Read More

Playful dressing is a style that combines elegance with sexiness, nothing is too over shown or extravagant. These looks keep sex appeal to a minimum, yet the flirty appeal is interpreted by others as confidently sophisticated. A playful attire combines the expected with the unexpected and makes use out of rich materials such as sheer lace to showcase a level of provocativeness.   For example, a woman in a black…

5 Tips for Transitioning ‘Slowly’ to Fall

Read More

Even though it’s still the beginning of August, in my mind, fall is already here. My son’s school starts back next week and I’m dreading how tight my schedule is going to become with sports, homework and keeping up with myself and work. So, I’ve decided to transition my summer wardrobe out a little here and a little there. Read below for my top five tips for transitioning (slowly) for…

A Careless Summer

Read More

It’s crazy to think summer is almost coming to an end. I feel like it was just yesterday when my (now) ex-fiance and I threw the ultimate summer kick off party, which was dubbed ” The F’n Schindler Wine Mixer” by those who attended. It was the kind of party where people jumped in the pool and played basketball until early morning hours. That Memorial Day weekend was truly the…

Relationships and Adult Breakups

Read More

Relationships are hard and adult breakups are even worse, but there is nothing more therapeutic than music to help you get through a breakup. We all find that one song that resonates with us. Mine happens to be “Brand New Me” by Alicia Keys. I’ve had it downloaded forever, but never found it to be very relatable until I heard it today on my shuffle playlist. I recently went through…

Scotch and Soda- A Dress with Versatility

Read More

The month of June was practically a blur to me. So many ups and downs along with new transitions after my recent break-up. I’ve been suffering from writers block the past two weeks, because I can’t write about what’s really on my mind. I guess out of respect to my ex-fiance, the timing just isn’t right. But all I can say is this, always surround yourself with people who embrace…

Breathable Summer Layers

Read More

The summer season is always the hardest to create interesting looks due to the heat. Layers are a crucial part of the creative process, so for us stylish people who see dressing as a way of art, the heat eliminates a lot of our fun. This is why breathable, chic jackets like this Elliot Embroidered Utility Jacket by Rails is the bomb-dot-com. This jacket can be worn throughout the whole…

Tricks to Not Dread Summer Shorts

Read More

I don’t know how many of you would agree with this statement, but the older I get the more I dread wearing shorts. Obviously, things just don’t feel as nice and tight as they used to in my 20’s. My biggest concern has always been the upper back portion of my legs. You know, that dreadful area that likes to accumulate cellulite first. And is it just me? Or does…

Organic Love for Eileen Fisher

Read More

When it comes to neutrals you can’t go wrong, especially in a staple piece item like this funnel neck jacket by Eileen Fisher.  When I say this jacket is ideal, it is. The funnel neck adds a subtle flair, the perfect pizzazz for any minimalist style seeker. The neutral pearl color and high quality of craft allows this jacket to be easily worn casually or professionally. I highly recommend this…

Style Trends Favor Relaxed Vibes

Read More

There is no doubt style trends favor relaxation. Who says you always have to dress things up just because it’s a dressier item? Fashion these days is all about breaking the rules, it’s become a state of mind where no border exists from right or wrong. Style has become the primary focus. Meaning, designers continue to make relevant updates to staple piece items, but the focus is primarily on what’s paired…

A Detox Bath with Instant Gratification

Read More

(Photo: Country Living Magazine) In my search for a healthier way of being, I’ve come to discover that I’ve been obsessing over different detox methods. I’ve tried a few, but none compare to the Apple Cider Vinegar bath. I instantly saw results after just one soak. I literally tried it for the first time Sunday night, and needless to say, I went and stocked up on A LOT of Apple…

Throw Away the Mini Bodycon

Read More

I have a friend who always complains about me wearing “too much flow” – as he phrases it. I keep telling him that for women its not about wearing tight clothing to show off a figure, well maybe for some it is, but it’s more about telling a story with confidence. Personally, I’m a firm believer in leaving a little mystery, and most men appreciate that, unless it’s your gay…

Daily Makeup Routine

Read More

  Okay, so I’ve had multiple requests from people wanting to know what makeup I use, so I’m gonna break it down step by step with links to shop here…   In my 30’s I started caring more about the coverage my makeup was providing. I remember always looking so tired, and the fresh face that I applied on in the morning was non existent by mid afternoon. The solution I found…

Must Have Jacket- The Bomber

Read More

I’m always in search of a nice light weight jacket that is perfect for spring mornings and the summer night breeze. And ladies–I have to say–its all about the perfect bomber this season. Designers and creative directors completely gave bomber jackets a new meaning with breathable material. Making them so versatile for spring and summer it’s hard to just buy one!   My favorite by far is this Johnny Was…

The Power of Color in Fashion

Read More

Your choice of color has everything to do with making a great fashion statement. Bold, bright colors always attract the eye, but when you combine bold stripes along with it, then it’s almost dazing… Wearing a colorful look will always leave a lasting impression on a person because it creates an emotion within them. We naturally correlate certain colors with certain emotions, and it can be your most powerful design…

When Accessories Take Over Layering

Read More

Let’s face it, when the warmer weather comes to stay it’s harder to create interesting looks. No one likes layering in hot weather, but layers are what make outfits great! Don’t fear the heat, for there are other options like patches, jewelry and brooches. Layering your jewelry is key to enhance the extra details. Pairing multiple delicate chains for a necklace (I would recommend up to three), as well as…

Spring’s New Floral and Denim

Read More

There is no doubt the floral print has had it’s name in the game all year round, most notably being FW16 biggest trend. Now, it continues to dominant designs throughout almost all retailers, as well as revamp the floral approach.   We are used to florals being worn in a way that seems polished to perfection, such as the average easter dress, but this year florals are making an impact…

Different Ways to Style the White Button Up

Read More

A white button up is a timeless item that all women should have in their wardrobe. It exudes class and is the go-to for layering in the fall/winter, but how do we wear it solo for spring and summer? (Without it feeling like a school girl’s uniform, as one of my friends would say.) This shirt is probably the most versatile item in a woman’s wardrobe– it literally pairs with…

10 Spring Trends to Know

Read More

There are some big spring trend alerts for the 2017 season and I’m gonna break ‘em down for ya right here: Deconstructed suiting. Matchy, matchy is overkill these days. The old way of pairing a suit together isn’t the same anymore. Designers are adding more interesting details and have them paired with more modernized midi skirts with a heel or relaxed trousers with a flat. Crossbody purses that hit at…

Transitioning Into Spring

Read More

There is something so rejuvenating to our spirits when we begin to transition our wardrobes from winter to spring. The idea of warmer weather ahead and new life blooming all around is refreshing. And if you didn’t already know, March is THE transition month to say bye-bye to your winter clothes and hello to your spring fun.  What I do, is start incorporating brighter colors. Pack up your dark hues…

Tips on Wearing All Black

Read More

We all know that black is every woman’s favorite color, and maybe every man’s too. It’s our go-to favorite for “serious”, “dramatic”, “edgy”, “slender”, “poised” looks. But sometimes pulling together separates in all black can be tricky. The number one rule when creating an all-black look from separates (such as a top, pant or skirt, jacket etc) is to play with textures and details to create a depth perception. An…

New Crave in Fashion

Read More

There is a new crave in the fashion world and it comes in a more artistic approach called patchwork. New concepts have modernized the whole idea of a simple patch. Individualized patches can also be bought to add to your shoes, shirt, jeans, jacket or even your cell phone cases these days. And the best part, is that it’s all up to your discretion. Adding patches to an ensemble can…

The Details Matter

Read More

French Connection really sets the standards high with their Legere Lace dress. The intricate details of the rainbow floral embroidery and mirrored embellishment, alone, make it purchase worthy. There are two things I look for most when choosing a dress: one, length; two, shape. When it comes to choosing a dress that is a more tailored fit, it’s important, at least for me, for it not to be very short. I don’t…

How to Mix Patterns

Read More

You know, it’s really hard not to dive right into spring attire, especially when I get emails on the daily from every store known to man on “New Arrivals”. But reality hits, and as much as I wish warmer temps would stay, I know a winter reality check is right around the corner. Therefore, I combined a spring jumpsuit that I wanted to wear (like yesterday) with winter-like layers, and…

How to Wear Athleisure

Read More

So what is athleisure wear? An athleisure look can be a mix of all sorts of things, but it combines three clothing categories into one. The three categories are sport, lounge and regular everyday wear. When dressing for this look you can approach it in two different ways by creating a dressed up casual lounge wear look or dressing down regular clothes by adding sport and lounge wear. (The #1…

The Investment in Leather

Read More

So I have to talk about two things here: 1) My love for this Scotch and Soda leather jacket and 2) How exciting it was working with a new photographer, Richard Crank.  There is always a kind of nervousness that comes about when working with a new photographer, because you get comfortable with people the longer you work with them, plus you have your mojo down. I was impressed with…

#1 Rule When Dressing

Read More

Always have a pop factor, an outfit isn’t complete without one. There are many different ways you can create your pop factor when planning out your look. Most choices involve a bold color or pattern, a statement necklace, or sometimes some nice big red lips… The moment I completed this look I felt my inner French say ‘Bonjour!’ You see, there is a simple eclectic style to the iconic Parisian…

Solitude

Read More

Life. We all search to find the true meaning, always asking ‘What is my purpose?’ I don’t think one can clearly answer this question without experiencing trials and tribulations. We learn from our mistakes and ponder on the what ifs. And I think as we get older, it’s necessary to have time of solitude to think about those things. A go to place where you can gather your thoughts and…

Top 6 Favorite Sweaters Under $100

We all know that winter is really just upon us, and nothing makes you feel better prepared than keeping your sweaters fresh at hand. Want to know some tricks to keeping the appearance of your sweaters in top shape? My top two tips include using a razor to trim off that dreadful sweater pilling (you know the little balls that pile up which make it look worn); and two, is…

The NYE Jumpsuit

Read More

  New Year’s Eve is a night, which for some, will be remembered as a drunken debauchery in their best attire, and for others, a cozy night in on the couch hoping they make it until midnight.  And as we all know, sometimes those celebrations can be a big hit or a total disaster, but either way, pictures will be taken and you will want to look your best. It’s…

A Party to Remember…Happy Birthday

Read More

It’s not too often that you are blessed to celebrate your fiancé’s and best friend’s birthday in one night. Yet alone, knowing that they share the exact same birthday, which is today, December 21st. I wanted to give them a celebration to remember their milestone chapter of turning 40, and for one, 40 again 😉   Even though we had to celebrate early due to the holiday season they, and…

Do’s and Don’ts to Wearing Jeans to the Party

Read More

There are no specific dress codes at hand when it comes to holiday parties, maybe that’s why some of us are more overwhelmed than others when thinking about all of our options. A few of us like to be creative but most of us like to be comfortable. There is no doubt that jeans are a girls go-to for comfort, so that’s why I have compiled a quick go-to list…

Holiday Parties and What to Wear

Read More

The holiday season is the busiest, most stressful, yet most fun time of the year. So don’t let your worries on what to wear to the party bog you down. Your options are unlimited with thinking outside the box of just the average cocktail dress. Now, I’m not saying a pretty cocktail dress isn’t great, but what I mean, is that there are more innovative ways to dress for a…

Do’s and Don’ts to Wearing OTK Boots

Read More

Thinking about trying out the OTK boot trend? Well, there are a few tips to keep in mind when pairing the ultra hot statement of the season.  It’s important to take into consideration your height and frame. Especially for more petite people, DO keep your skirt to a mini length, because if there isn’t enough space in between the hemline and the top of the boot, it can actually make…

It’s ALL About Relationships

Read More

Thanksgiving is a holiday where it’s important to take time to self reflect and appreciate the people who have helped shape your life to what it is today. Often, there is too much focus on material things and what we need to do to attain them. Forgetting about the relationships, that ultimately, we will reflect back to later in life and wish we had given them more energy. Think about…

How to Revamp the Daily Look

Read More

There are multiple ways to elevate an everyday look, but nothing makes it easier than a great statement necklace. And most times, the shinier the better. No one wants to see a big slap of coal around the neck, hence try to stay away from big pieces of black jewelry (it never really turns out the way you think it will). People want to see sparkle- think “eye-catching” rather than…

How to Rock the Wide Leg Pant

Read More

Wide leg pants are making a big statement this fall/winter season. How can they be rocked the best? In my personal opinion, wide leg pants or trousers look best worn high-waisted and with heels, which both help to elongate the legs too. We all know that’s crucial. Pairing the pants with a fitted blouse or sweater is best to show off a part of your figure, and keep any vests…

How to Layer

Read More

Let’s start by saying, I’m a big fan of layering. Layers can really take an outfit to another level. Now granted, there are some who prefer it, and some who could do completely without it. While layering isn’t for all, it certainly helps in creating a more intriguing look.  You first want to start off with the basics: bottoms and your “core” top piece. For example, in my outfit here,…

The Perfect Puffer

Read More

Let’s be real, a perfect puffer vest can be somewhat hard to find. You want the vest to have just enough of a chic element to it to keep it out of the classification group of “outdoors” only. This Joie puffer vest is literally perfect, and the best part, is that it’s REVERSIBLE! A two-in-one can never be beat. I kept this look casual, but chic with a heel. Pulling…

How to Color Block

Read More

Whether it’s out to play or for a day at work, color blocking is an option that will always fit the occasion. There is something about pairing colors in a complementary way or in a monochromatic fashion that strikes ones attention. You see, a lot of people don’t think about color pairing, but if you really stared at a color wheel long enough, and with trial and error, you learn…

Living Freely and Wisely

Read More

The progression of life is a hard thing to swallow.  Adjusting to change is one thing, but looking at the end of life is another. I don’t think nowadays people plan for living into their 90’s. (Sad news is, the likelihood of it happening is much higher these days.) We are so stuck on buying newer and better things, that we don’t really stop to think about how we hope…

Combination Tips for Fall

Read More

When we think of style combinations its becoming more normal to think of pairing a dress with the perfect pair of pants. Especially a dress like this Dragon Fly Cape by Show Me Your Mumu. When it comes to originality, this combo nails it. When recreating a similar look it’s important to make sure there is a common color in all three items when pairing. This rule is essentially applied…

Fall Florals

Read More

There is no denying that florals are having an impact this fall season. Designers have creatively added darker hues to such prints and have successfully created a “fall floral” thing. Definitely do not try to wear bright colored floral prints, in order to pull this trend off correctly, there MUST be a darker hues present. I fell in love with this romper by Show Me Your Mumu, it had the…

Sport Mixed Blues for Fall

Fall trend alert: Mixed Shades of Blue. The color blue is definitely a hot commodity for this fall’s 2016 season. Mixing different shades is essential, and pairing with accent colors is key.

Catch Lemons Like a Pro

Last week was probably one of the hardest weeks I’ve had in a while. So many changes going on it’s hard to keep my head clear. Well, and I guess wrecking my car doesn’t help to lift the fog. I clearly need glasses at this point. I try not to get sour when thinking about it, but to move forward and not dwell on the damage–can be hard.  You see…

The Many Ways to Styling a Dress

Read More

There is something so stunning when watching a dress that barely touches a woman’s silhouette, not to mention how incredibly amazing it feels. This barely pink dress called, “Janella”, by BCBG Max Azria lays and hangs perfectly with little effort, and the fabric is irresistibly soft to the touch, with 64% cotton and 36% rayon.   I adore “Janelle” for all seasons. In the summer she has a little peek-a-boo…

Accept the Unknown with Grace

Read More

Life is a pretty gifted puzzle, and the unknown can almost drive you crazy. When it comes to our health, work-life and our personal relationships, feeling unsteady in one of these categories can really knock you off your rocker. Especially when we can’t figure it out, we become almost obsessive in trying to find answers. But why? If things didn’t go our way, it happened for a reason. God has…

I Love Sundays

If everyday were Sunday, I’d be in heaven. I really try to make my Sundays about only relaxation, but life kicks in, and I’m swamped with a To-Do-List to page 10. Okay, maybe that’s an over exaggeration, but I stay pretty swamped. Could it be from my lack of time management? Possibly. I always think there is WAAAY more time than what there really is. It’s a fault in me….

Two-in-One Investment

BCBG Max Azria is notoriously known for their timeless fashion, leaving us women to feel as though we have invested well over the years.

The fashion powerhouse is able to keep up with trends, yet in subtle manner, not overdoing much of anything….

Summer Spirits

So this is a funny story… We are on shoot for the Village Collection SS16 Lookbook and we get to this number: The White Sheer Dress by Cleobella. I’m in love, but it’s beyond sheer, so I’m nervous at the same time. I came prepared with a barely-there nude thong, pasties and all.  I will never forget walking out of the fitting room with a bandaid to cover my landing…

About two weeks ago I visited Vegas for a Mariah Carey show (she’s my fav, if you didn’t already know that) and I was in pure heaven listening to her deliver her lyrics to me better than the actual CDs (I think I may have just stated my age). For two hours I was mind blown by her talent and thanks to my best friend, Torrence, we sat only three…

Style is Knowing Yourself

Read More

All too often I hear people say they don’t know what their style is, but really if you take the time to think about the things that you like to wear, it’s pretty simple. Having great style is all about knowing your body and what you feel comfortable and great in wearing. There is nothing worse than going out for a day of work/evening events and not feeling 100% about…

Eyes Wide Open

Read More

  As time continues on, the older we get, the wiser we become and the unlimited possibilities we used to think of begin to become narrowed. Our minds become too focused on what is, what should be, what is not and how can we fix the unfixable.  It used to be that I was able to lie down at night and fall fast asleep, not even the sound of a…

White Statements

Read More

As the season’s begin to change and when warm weather first occurs, a new life becomes of us. We begin to seem happier as we think of many past summer pleasures. Our energy and attitudes become more lively and enjoyable. I guess that’s why every time I hear Will Smith’s song “Summertime” nostalgia takes over and I find myself living in a daydream of memories from college days.  I recently…

A Colorful Retirement?

Read More

Every now and then life throws curve balls at us and we always have to adapt to those changes. When you sit back to actually think about just exactly what is life’s purpose, for some it is a huge mystery and for others they already know their path. In your 20’s you struggle to figure out exactly what work will make you happy for the rest of your life, some…

The Art of Letting Go

Read More

In life there are certain lessons taught, one of which is the art of letting go. For some of us this comes harder to accept than to others. Whether it be in death, relationships or materialistic things, it is hard to accept what is meant to be. When I was younger, I was that girl who had to learn the hard way. I tried to hold on to relationships that…

Clean Eating + Coffee is Good for the Soul

Read More

So I’ve started this new venture in clean eating, and I must say, it’s amazing. Since January 2nd I’ve done nothing but eat raw fruits and veggies. Granted, it’s not an easy transition, but I’m kind of an all or nothing person who likes a change, so it has worked well for me. I make a 32oz juice of only fresh fruits and spinach in the mornings. I eat bell…

A New Year, Back on Black

Where to begin? There are so many things that run through my mind on a daily basis; things that I am grateful for, the future, my passions and my dispositions. 2015 was a great year, but I know 2016 is going to be waaaaaay better. I’m focused on nothing but being a mother, healthy, having love, happiness and prosperity for 2016. For those of you who actually read my blog,…

Complementary Colors 101

Read More

One of the best tricks for a great stylist is knowing your complementary colors. The definition of complementary colors according to Google, are pairs of colors which, when combined, cancel each other out. This means that when combined, they produce a grey-scale color like white or black. When placed next to each other, they create the strongest contrast for those particular two colors. Knowing which colors can accent each other…

What I’ve Been Buying for Fall

Turning temperatures has me investing in lots of warm staple pieces, and for some reason I can’t get enough of two things: long cardigan sweaters and vests.

You can wear sweater vests such as this with almost anything and it serves two great purposes:…

Some great transitional items are sleeveless sweaters to wear with jeans…

Last Summer Days

Summer seems to be hanging on, but in just a matter of days fall temps are going to be realistic. Summer has had its fun; however, in reminiscing of it all, I can only think about the tremendous and continuous amounts of rain that dominated the July month here. Summer definitely didn’t leave an impact this year. Actually, there never came a point where I asked if fall could be…

A 70’s Revival

Fall brings so much excitement to life. If you think about all the football games, tailgates, Halloween, Thanksgiving and especially the fall foliage, the autumn season begins to seem like a best friend. A friend that comes and goes, adding events to the calendar and pushing out our summer wardrobes. This fall the fashion Gods prove to be inspired by anything of the past. This Fall/Winter season (FW15) gives new…

My Alexander Wang

There is no denying that designers are known for certain vibes, especially in their runway collections. Alexander Wang has always been about some edge. His recent women’s FW15 Ready-to-Wear Collection has spunk, goth, mystery and a little bit of 90’s grunge love going on; every single model came out in all black attire. Granted, an all black look never photographs very well, it’s hard to see the details in the…

Enjoy Your Journey

Every now and then we dress ourselves and wonder, “Where will this outfit take me?” Maybe we ask the same question too many times about where our lives are going. Back in my heydays, which were the roaring 20’s (not really, lol), the possibilities were open and endless. Now in my 30’s the window seems smaller. As we age we can’t help but to think of all the fundamentals of…

  I love that it is actually in style to wear things oversized. The uncomparable comfort to form fitted clothes could never be measured. This dress by Elliott Lauren may look like a bag to some, but for others it speaks a sense of confidence. Baggy is cool and undeniably on trend.

HStyle, June 2015

These are all local Huntingtonians who have caught my eye, either by how they have styled their looks or by their efforts to match and pull things together. In Huntington, everyone has a style. Everyone’s style and preferences may be different, but that’s what the beauty of style is– it is defined by you. I hope next month I come across more stylish locals, very thankful for these beauties above!…

Waiting for Spring

Click on images to enlarge. Photos by Courthead Does Photography, Courtney Christian I get one day of warm weather and immediately begin having spring fever; I feel like it can’t get here soon enough.

Heavy on the Cream

Click on images to enlarge. All photos by Courthead Does Photography, Courtney Christian I’m currently in love with the trend of all light colors. An all over monochromatic look is nothing but elegant, because less is always more. However, there is something that says “approachable” when wearing all lighter colors. A person, to me, looks more happy and pleasant. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the all black just…

Modern Art

Click on images to enlarge. All photos by Courthead Does Photography, Courtney Christian What is art? According to my trusty search engine, Google, it is the “expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form…producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.” And style is the way in which it is said, done, expressed, performed or designed. Therefore, I ask, where…

Parisian Influences

CLICK on images to enlarge Photos by Courthead Does Photography, Courtney Quinn Christian My Parisian influences come from my family. My great grandparents left France in the early 1900’s to make a family here in America.

The Versatile Boyfriend Jean

The ever so trendy “Boyfriend Jean” is here to stay. Over sized denim and baggy pants are a hot trend for spring 2015.

Photos by Courthead Does Photography, Courtney Quinn Christian There are five colors that are accepted year round without any question: black, creme, nude, camel and gray (and white for a button down collared shirt).

Most essential pieces…

Photos by Courthead Does Photography, Courtney Quinn Christian   “Good Morning.” Isn’t that the phrase everyone wishes to hear in the morning first?
