My Style

Briller comme une étoile

By  | 

The title means “Shine like a star” and I meant that for my first outfit post for 2012. *YAY* We all have a shining star inside of us. If we don’t ever try, that star will forever be hidden. I know not all of us are very vocal or straight forward on doing things, some of the people I know are even the shy type but its 2012! If it were true [the so called end of the world] prediction which I don’t believe by the way] then we don’t have any time to waste. Even if it’s not going to happen, why should we hold back and restrict ourselves? We will never know if we don’t try, so if there is something that you have been wanting to try I suggest give it a go. After all it’s time to make room for changes right? LOL. I have always wanted to do try out fashion and style blogging and I’m telling you, when I did it was the best decision I have ever made. *feels like a boss*

My life is a roller coaster of events. Loving life is a bliss. So no matter what life brings me I will take my best foot forward and accept the challenge. After all, if there are down times there will be up times too. We learn from our experience. My outfit post is inspired by that —by making use of what I have. By trying to take life as it is, bringing you a touch of style and fashion even if its not super flashy, trendy or branded. Hope you like my outfit post for today. Let me know what you think! Til’ next, xox.

My name is Angela Ricardo Bethea and I am the founder and editor behind ( and many other online publications ) ... I love the finer things in life, I'm quite a shop-a-holic and a certified jet-setter. So if I am not behind my laptop to blog, I'd probably be shopping if not traveling.

    Hello gorgeous visiting you here 🙂
    Yes I completely agree with the fact that you mentioned about changes this year 🙂 yes, make a change for better! why should we think about what other people think of us. It is better to be ourselves than completely fake at all and pleasing other people to be impress about us lol 

    Anyway happy new year! hope you had an amazing one!
    link exchange? 🙂

    You’re so daring. This is what I like from a woman. Dare to be on her star to shine. I like that way you said: “I  will take my best foot forward and accept the challenge.” This is the very reason why I describe you as “so daring!” You give out your best whatever matters, what others may say as long as you’re doing your best. That’s your nature. Don’t keep that for yourself.l Share it. Just like what you’re doing right now for others to appreciate, for others to make up their mind to cope with your style. Keep going Angel!

    cool! I love your pumps and i definitely agree with giving things a “go”! keep it up!

    Even if you only made do with what you had, this is still a good outfit. 😀 I love the red – my favourite colour. Not to mention the hat is super cute and I want one in the same style – probably black though. I hope you don’t think I’m weird or anything but you do have lovely legs! 

    I don’t believe in that 2012 end of the world thing. If I let it rule my mind anyway, it’s going to eat at me. I usually believe in “live every day like it’s your last” and that’s what I try to do. Every day is special. 🙂

    I hope everything is okay with that polyp – it had better not be something terrible so I hope you get a checkup soon. 🙂 I started feeling better after my colon problems so I got a second x-ray and it had cleared up, so I just had to keep eating fibre supplements. Lack of fibre can result in a full colon D: 

    Have a wonderful first week of the year! <3

    Hi, Angela! I’m not sure if my comment went to spam or something, I just went back (which I always do), to make sure that my comment was posted. Anyway, I’m not finding it here though, hehehe! I love your photos, you looks so pretty! Perhaps, my wife would love to browse on your pages, to get more fashion tips and see beautiful outfit trends! Have a blessed New Year! =)

    Hi Angel, this fraction really sums up what you are and I see you doing great styles over here. That red high stacked heel with black front combination looks stunning. Overall nice poses, and surely thinking of putting on my next party.

    No black, No white… just a real fashion. Rather universal. It ain’t got any limits. Let’s do with the Black this time.
