Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I’d share a simple-yet-classic idea for a Valentine’s Day LBD like it’s NBD. The reason the little black dress is so popular is because everyone can pull of this look in a classy and form-flattering way. I’ve had this dress for several years now, and it’s served me well. I love the little lace detail on the sleeves. As for the shoes, I’m honestly not a big shoe girl. I like to keep my shoes simple, usually wearing wedges, boots, or sandals, depending the season. A tan wedge basically goes with everything and is easy for every day. Lately, I’ve been wearing dangles instead of stud earrings because I like how it can gently dress up a look with a feminine touch.

While it’s on your mind, I also thought I’d share a few pieces of relationship advice as it relates to *gasp* Valentine’s Day.

With the start of a new year, it’s a great idea to resolve to level up in your communication skills with intentions of improving your relationships and even beginning new ones.

In the digital age we live in, communication has dramatically evolved overnight into a new phase.

Some people have trouble expressing what they truly feel and what is on their mind. It has become easy to treat people as disposable with new technology. Even with an abundance of options on how to meet new people and connect with friends and family, there are disconnects in ways people communicate.

Subtweeting, sending people subliminal messages through social media posts, and seeking attention and validation through online platforms. These are shallow actions that have become commonplace. Maybe you’ve observed these things and want to spark a change.

Nevertheless, sometimes you need to go directly to the source of what you want and need to say. If you are seeking to connect more effectively with people in all areas of your life and create new connections, this article is for you. Congrats, you’re here. You want to evolve and become better. I like you already. Let’s begin.

1. Stop filtering yourself.

If you want to become a better communicator, you need to stop filtering your feelings while maintaining a balance of being direct. This is a gap in many relationships between couples who are seeking to connect more effectively. A woman cannot be in her natural feminine energy with a man if she continues to filter her emotions. A man connect effectively connect with a woman if he is emotionally unavailable to her in the relationship.
