Friday night is date night and since both I and the man have busy schedules they are quite rare. I'm so excited that I'm already planning my outfit (items linked in bio). We're thinking about going to a pumpkin carving event in the evening so I will definitely need layers for when the temp drops. I'm thinking I'll go with this white sweater and this HUGE blanket scarf that I absolutely love! I can wear it around my neck and transition it into a shall/poncho (because it's that big) for later in the evening. I can't wait!! 🤗
#WCW Y'all know black women have been sprinkling #blackgirlmagic years before the hashtag, years before Beyonce told us to get in formation and years before Solange reminded us that yes, there is a seat at the table for all of us. But, this Wednesday I celebrate these beauties @nessa_bess @danzigswolf and @akuagabby for the glitter and gold I witnessed them sprinkle last week. You go girl! (In my Martin voice) Snaps ALLLLLL around for the kids!!! #GoGina Check out more on www.simplysheisstyle.com link in my bio
To put it simply, I am Nashea. I'm a complicated yet, stylish mess on a journey of self love and self acceptance without fear. The fear of people knowing that I too, struggle with depression and anxiety. I first noticed signs after losing my brother in 2004 and in 2007 after losing my son, Jordan, I broke. Seeing a therapist, taking my meds and creatively expressing myself through my style became my therapy regime. I now believe when I feel good mentally, thats when I'm my flyest. Not the other way around. It starts from within to shine on the outside. If you've followed any of my past blogs, you know I've taken quite some time away to focus on balance and healing. By no means am I 100% there but, I'm finally ready to share my journey back to my happy place and hopefully inspire you to find or follow yours as well.

Nothing can separate us from #Love , but each of us can build walls so it seems like we are. I have learned to make the difference I intend to make, I first needed to look within, become undone, and allow Love to permeate my heart, my soul and my mind. 💖 I am confident that if we each took this on, the context of what it means to be a human being would alter. ✨
| Always expecting the unexpected | October has not only brought about a change in the weather, but plenty of change in my life. Changes in health, friendships, work and family. Not only has stress affected my physical health it has left me in a place where I’d rather be in bed than be productive. It has given me the view that I don’t contribute enough daily and has negatively affected my growth as a person. Life with mental illness is about over coming these kinds of obstacles and proving depression wrong, time and time again.
This is probably the hardest and most nerve racking post I’ve shared with you guys. I really can’t believe I took a photo showing you my flaws and all... But here it goes.
I came across a photo I took years ago the first time I decided to start meal-prepping and losing weight and it stirred up a lot for me. Taking this photo today is a bit therapeutic for me.
You guys have probably noticed by now I am not a size two, or the most fit health food blogger in our lovely community of powerful women and men.
I’ve always struggled with my weight and body image issues since childhood. I decided to “get healthy” (lose weight) years ago when I first started my instagram page. I wasn’t always successful because I was struggling through a lot of emotional difficulties. But this past year esp, I’ve really started to come into my own. I told myself I’m always going to have emotional struggles but letting those things hinder my growth is only hurting me even more.
I tend to be more private about my struggle with body issues because I’ve never wanted to come across as some sob story (not that anyone who shares their story is a sob story. That just stems from me never wanting pity and proving myself no matter what. I’m so inspired by those beautiful and strong women and men who do share their incredible stories everyday). This year I’ve truly learned that this community we’ve built is a part of my strength and what guides me to continue doing what I’m doing. Throughout this journey I’ve learned a lot about my body and what works and what doesn’t. But, I’ve learned to embrace my curves, cellulite, my cubby face, and every jiggle. I know a lot of you struggle with the same issues and I wanted to share that you aren’t alone! Health does not mean you have to be a size two. I’m standing in front of you healthy (and getting healthier) and not a size two. Hell I share healthy recipes and lifestyle tips with you and I struggle EVERYDAY! But my hope is you learn to LOVE yourself AS YOU ARE! So you can really love and enjoy the changes you see in your body on your journey to healthy. I adore you all. And my hot yoga class kicked my ass today, so I’m gonna go soak in a bath✌🏾.

I hear #God speaking to me through @adele every time I hear her song, Remedy. ✨ In times when we feel hopeless, worthless, like a fool, He is there waiting to be our Remedy. To heal, to protect, to restore and remind us that we are whole, perfect and complete. We may be imperfect as humans, but in Spirit is where our truth resides. So when we aren't well, turn to Him, our Great Remedy. 💖
