"I listened as they called my President a Muslim terrorist sympathizer .
I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
I listened as they said he wasn't born here.
I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialog.
I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
I watched as they did just that.
I listened.
I watched.
I paid attention.
Now, I'm being called on to be tolerant.
To move forward.
To denounce protesters.
To "Get over it."
To accept this...
I will not.
I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
I will do this as quickly as possible every chance I get.
I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to them.
Them. The people who voted for him.
The ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
I will do this so that they never forget.
And they will hear me.
They will see it in my eyes when I look at them.
They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them.
They will know that I know who they are.
They will know that I know what they are.
Do not call for my tolerance. I've tolerated all I can.
Now it's their turn to tolerate ridicule.
Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day
forward is now Trump's fault just as much as they thought it was Obama's.
I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give."

Get Up and Try Again

A few years ago, Donnie McClurkin released a record hit called, “We Fall Down”. The lyrics are simple yet transformative to what many considered to be typical gospel music: We fall down, but we get up. But a saint is just a sinner who fell down and got up. For many of us, this is our story. We have tried a new job, which we loved and failed. We have tried a relationship and have failed. We have tried to be like Jesus and have failed. Too often, we are defined by our failures. Our failures become a mark of shame and ridicule. Therefore, we run and hide when we fail. We do our best to cover up the story and embellish it to ensure that folks do not see our mess-ups. Besides, who wants to be seen as weak or a failure?

In the sermon Power to Endure by Pastor Jenkins, he reminds us that all things worth having, take time; that life is a journey of a thousand mess-ups; that our failures do not define us, but rather, how we respond to those failures. God has provided everything that we need to try again. When we are knocked down by life’s troubles, we exercise our access to divine power when we stand up and try again. The enemy is troubled and angry when time after time of knocking us down, we get back up and continue to fight. If there is something you want out of your life, it is your responsibility to press forward, despite the shame, despite the troubles, despite the scars, and learn from the failures so that you will stand up stronger than ever.

As Jesus endured the horror of the cross and suffered that all of us would be free, he exemplified endurance. Jesus was beaten, ridiculed, betrayed and ultimately killed in order so that we would have direct access to God. He endured all of this, because he loved us and knew it had to be done. Yet, a few days later, he rose up from the grave to show us that though we might be knocked down, we have the power to get back up again through Jesus Christ!

Mother/Father God,
Thank you for being the lifter of my head
When life has knocked me down,
You stretched forth your hand
And gave me the courage to get up
I will forever be thankful.
In the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior,

10 But whatever I am now it is all because God poured out such kindness and grace upon me—and not without results: for I have worked harder than all the other apostles, yet actually I wasn’t doing it, but God working in me, to bless me. 11 It makes no difference who worked the hardest, I or they; the important thing is that we preached the Gospel to you and you believed it.

Aged Rum 101 and a Rum-Refashioned Carla Jun 09, 2016

Appleton Estate Rum and Lipstick | Haute CocktailI have to admit that I'm a fan of whiskey. No matter if you hand it to me on the rocks, with a splash of ginger ale or in a classic Old-Fashioned cocktail; I'm all over anything whiskey based. However, once upon a time, you would have heard me ordering a rum cocktail on any given Saturday night. The switch happened throughout years of exploring and trying new things… In other words, it's a story for another day. Today, I want to share with you the resurgence that dark rum is having in the bar scene, and how similar the paths to sipping perfection between whiskey and premium aged rums are.
Premium aged rums are able to match whiskey in complexity, flavor and versatility. In a lot of familiar cocktails, you can even exchange whiskey for dark rum, like in the Rum Re-Fashioned recipe I share below.  So, what are the similarities between dark rum and whiskey?
  • Aging: Like whiskey, dark rum is aged in wooden barrels. The wood, then, gives it delicious notes of caramel, vanilla and fruit while the time in the barrel ensures that the taste is smooth and mellow.
  • Quality Ingredients: While whiskey requires quality grains (rye, corn, wheat, etc.), rum uses first-rate sugar cane. For example, Appleton Estate Rums grow eight different varieties for a unique flavor profile.
  • Master's Touch: Both whiskey and rum are complex liquids that reqquire a keen nose and taste buds to blend each batch to the desired flavor. Whiskey has Master Distillers, while rum has Master Blenders.
  • Versatility: The sweetness of both rum and bourbon are delicious in cocktail recipes or on their own.  
Rum Re-Fashioned cocktail recipe | Haute Cocktail

Rum Re-Fashioned

2 oz. Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old
.25 oz. Maple Syrup
Dash Dale DeGroff's Pimento Bitters
Orange/lemon Oil
2×2 Ice Cube
Add maple syrup, a dash of the bitters, and Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old and gently stir to combine all ingredients. Gently add a 2×2 ice cube. Stir in the glass 20-30 times and garnish with the oil & peel of lemon and orange.

A lot of bars are bringing in new rum cocktails to their menus. You can also see a lot of Bar Rums sprouting all over the country, while a lot of tiki bars (which tend to have a pretty nice amount of rum-based cocktails) are also reinventing their offerings to be more sophisticated. You can check out Mother of Pearl (NYC), Pagan Idol (San Francisco), Rum Club (Portland) and Three Dots and a Dash (Chicago). Feel free to check out my guide to what to do and eat in Chicago, if planning a visit there.
Do you dare to sip dark rum like you sip your whiskey? Give it a try! I like to sip mine on the rocks or with a splash of ginger ale. Also, when drinking on the rocks, I love the sweet caramel-y flavor I get once a bit of the ice has melted in my Appleton Estate Rum. Get a bottle and let me know what you think of the experience on a comment. And if you are already an aged rum fan, share with me your favorite brands!
*Thank you Appleton Estate Rums for gifting me a bottle for me to enjoy and sharing all this great information with me. There was no further compensation for this post.*

Summer Whites + J. Jill May Collection

*This post highlights summer whites and features an item from J. Jill's May Collection, gifted to me for a product review
Hey Everyone!
I wish I could say "Happy Monday", but I'd only be able to say that if I didn't have to work. :-) One thing I am happy about is the fact that the wishy washy weather is gone. Warm weather is finally here to stay and the first day of summer is fast approaching. That means it's time to start planning out your summer wardrobe! I don't know about you, but I plan to wear tons of summer whites this season. There's something so regal about white. I always feel elegant when I wear it. Not to mention the fact that it keeps you cool in the heat. I'm REALLY excited about the pieces I'll be featuring this week from J. Jill's May Collection. I purposely handpicked my favorite white pieces to show you how fun wearing white can be. I'm also in LOVE with every piece I'll be wearing this week so please stick with me as I show you how I've styled them!
Today, I'm wearing J. Jill's Embroidered Tiered Maxi Dress. What can I say…this dress is SO unbelievably comfortable and sophisticated! I've been posting for J. Jill for quite a while now and I've mentioned on several posts how phenomenal the quality of their clothing is. I simply can't say it enough. The fabric of this dress is so soft that you literally feel as if you have nothing on! I shot these pictures on Sunday after it had rained on Saturday. That means that not only was it hot, but it was humid as well. I'm happy to report that I felt cool as a fan while wearing this dress! To give it some shape, I added a brown belt. Brown accessories and shoes were also added to help bring out some more color. The end result? Feminine Bohemian Chic. I think this outfit is definitely going to be added to my list of favorites!
Here's my look:

Gold and Bold

Bold Eyeliner, glitter on face and Golden lip color are few makeup trends of Spring/ Summer '16, which I combined together to create a new look for my college project.

Taking inspiration from Egyptian makeup style, I recreated the look with square flick eyeliner. Golden lips are done in place of nude lips, using glitter eye - shadow. Attention has been drawn towards eyes by placing Bindi(s) under my eyes. 

Curls are done to add drama. Golden accessories are used to give a finishing touch to the Egyptian look.

Eyeliner - Maybelline Gel Eyeliner
Foundation - Lancome Teint Idole Ultra
Lips - Eye shadow from Urban Decay Palette
Nails - Maybelline Downtown Red 216

What do you think of the look?
