:LATE ENTRY from 11/2012:

Hi Everyone!

My Gosh, it’s been a minute! My life has been one whirlwind since my last posts. SO much has changed in the last 6 months! I missed blogging because as cliche as it may sound, it actually is a great way to express and release. Initially, I wanted to blog every week, but I think I put too much pressure on myself to do that and besides then it would be forced. I’m not tryna make a living off this I just want to do’ me.

 Moving forward! I’ve been moving around a bit in the last year. I’m an Official Traveling RN now! I’ve lived in VA, South Florida, and of course Atlanta with in the last 9 months or so. It’s been crazy, trying to make extra money and sacrifices that go with it. Missing out on birthdays, holidays, and my man have been hard. But I am back home in Atlanta at least for now. It’s been a wonderful experience traveling, other than feeling like I’m  always missing out on something. I’ve gained a lot of confidence as a nurse, which is great only being in the game 2.5 years now.

  Speaking of my MAN.. he added an additional title! Along with MY MAN, he’s also my Fiance now!! Completely caught me off guard! That has been maybe one of the most surreal moments of my life. I’ve always been a hopeless romantic, but there was a little itty bitty piece of me who just thought it would never happen until I met him. Simply because of all the failed relationships all around us, or lack of there of. From celebrities, friends, and family that kind of stuff can make you jaded. It’s been just shy of a month since he proposed and I still look at my ring, and get shocked lol. The greatest thing is that our family is happy, accepting of our love and has been from the very start. I must say it’s a pretty AMAZING feeling! He chose me, I chose him ;) Everyone asks “When is the date?!”. I really have no clue, we play around with the idea of a years time, but that’s tentative.Taking it one day at a time :)

  Something that has been in the oven for about a year and half is slowly but SURELY coming to life.  The Fiance and I have been devising a plan and diligently spending all of our free time and money on nurturing a business plan.That plan would be a about a Multi-textural hair salon. Not just any salon, but we plan on changing your previous salon experience drastically. We are slowly approaching our third trimester- which is normally the last few months of pregnancy, I refer our salon to a baby all the time which is easy because WE created it with our love and vision. It’s called Loop Salon. Follow us on this journey via twitter, instagram, facebook @Loopsalonatl.

Lastly! The only constant thing in this life is change. Allow life to change you, be ready for change, and accept the new things! I have a new obsession with triangles, the symbol also represents change.

My Yellow Skinnies!

image

I finally got a pair of yellow skinnies! As pictured above, I came across Trina the rapper on a blog site not too long ago and it was love at first sight. I started the hunt for a pair of my own, I found out the pair Trina wore are Rag&Bone and had a hefty price tag of $188. Yikes! That’s too ______(<-Insert your “choice” word here) much! Express Clothing Store carries a pair but they were too short when I tried them on. By they way I’m 5’11”, so maybe if you’re shorter that pair may work for you. Later checked out Urban Outfitter’s online store and I found two different pairs, but I couldn’t tell from online which had the more vibrant color. Couldn’t decide, so I ordered both with the intention to return one once I was able to see it in person. The pair I chose were $58.00(+shipping & tax) and I love them. I swear they make my soul glow every time I wear them. =)

The first time I wore them is pictured, head to toe:

Head | Scarf from my mom’s closet

Shirt | sweater shirt from Urban Outfitter’s

Pants | Cigarette Skinny Pants

Shoes | Steve Madden Peep-toe Pumps


This is my night time routine when I am playing nice with my hair.  Ambrosia and I have similar textures; also she very thorough when describing her Hurr routine. I substitute the carrot oil with the coconut oil as mentioned in my previous post. Tell me how you like it!


5 Ways to Keep your Va-jay-jay Happy with You!

image

I’d be really disrespectful if I didn’t pop in a little health knowledge in this blog. After all I am registered nurse, it would an absolute SHAME! It’s starting to get hot out so let’s keep our lower heart smiling =)

  1. Cotton Panties- It’s first on the list for a reason. Especially when working long hours (hrs >4) or exercising. It is best to let IT breathe and catch a breeze. Lycra, spandex, and other none none cotton panties won’t allow that.
  2. Thong, thong, thong- It is best to wear thongs for very short periods of time, like the few minutes before it’s play time, and I don’t mean the playground. Thongs also prevent breeze. Which can cause irritation and yeast infections. 
  3. Panty liners- Only use when your on your menstrual cycle. They should not be used to catch normal discharge. If your discharge is abnormal or in copious amounts then you may want to see your gyn.
  4. Toss’em to the side- Before bed it’s actually a great idea to skip putting on panties. Wearing your pajama pants solo is an option too. Just imagine if you had a muzzle on 24/7, you would be mad too.
  5. Listennnn *bey voice*-  Frequent occurrences of abnormal vaginal discharge, irrititaion or discomfort, may be ways your body is trying to tell you. Pay attention, and see your GYN.

Keeping it STRONG! Love, that is..

Hey Love birds and wannabe Love birds,

Love is a beautiful thing; unfortunately, love is not always enough to keep relationships afloat. I came a cross an article on Yahoo's website, "The 9 Secrets of Happy Couples". Though it often references married couples, these ideas and practices apply to “serious” relationships and unmarried couples. I loved this article because it didn’t mention acquiring costly, material things, so we all can afford these tips. Also this article may put things into perspective if you have been feeling stagnant in your relationship. the key points:

image

1. They use terms of endearment

2. They do stuff together

3. When the going gets tough, they don’t call Mom or Dad

4. They stay connected to their parents

5. They don’t nickel-and-dime about chores

6. They fight constructively

7. They give each other gifts (Not bought)

8. They never lose their sense of humor

9. They take “for better or for worse” seriously

Let me know what you think? Also, can you think of anything else that could be added to this list?
