Hello, Dolls!! I was sitting here thinking. I think i should hit my dolls with some info about investing in yourself. There is nothing like it. We all should do this. Why keep giving our black earned dollars to someone else, when we can do it ourselves. As I am getting this boutique together, I thought to self that i want to do other things too. That this is just a start. Believe me when I tell you there will be times when you want to just throw in the towel and give up. DO NOT!!! Oh yes, it is long hours. You may not have enough money. Things pop up out the blue to slow you down. God always has your back. There will always be blocks, but you have to remove them. Us as women; especially black women, we need to come together and help each other. Have meetings in your neighborhoods with other women on how to go in business for self. We need to teach our kids to start young. Working for self seems like the only way to financial freedom. When you work those long hours, let it be for you. It is so much money out there for us all. Coming soon I am going to do meetings on how to get started on your own business. Show college students they can work from home or the dorm room. In the world today, of living paycheck to paycheck, this step is needed. Why go buy from someone else beauty store, when you can open your own. Dolls, get out there and research and go to conferences. Get into the know how of being a business owner. Great day dolls. Who loves you more, God and then yourself!!!!
Hello Dolls!!! I know I have been M.I.A., but I have been trying to take care of me. There are so many things going on in our lives that sometimes we need to take a break. I am in the process of starting a boutique, but I have a million obstacles that gets in the way. I am battling all of these obstacles one at a time. I decided after fighting these battles that I needed a spiritual maintenance. I needed a daily exercise of this spiritual maintenance. I thought I need a break from social media also while I am on this. I need some peace within me. I need to consider myself good. I have decided that daily workouts will be included in this. I need to keep my beautiful temple healthy. I also wallowed in this self-centered fear. It was an overwhelming dissonance between who I wanted to be and how I was living. My fears took the form of every imaginable character defect from anger to sloth. I wasn’t comfortable in my own skin at one point, but I am now. I use to pray at times to get over this shyness and seek out the company of people with long term self-love of themselves. I need to take a hiatus for this spiritual maintenance and soak up as much as I can to be right for what God has planned for me. I know it is huge what my God has for me and I need to be ready for it. Dolls always take the time out for you, so you can be good for whomever you need to be good for. Love and light to you all!!
Oh my, I haven’t written in here in a minute you guys. How are my dolls? Are we self-loving?? I have been so busy trying to get this boutique off the ground. I am so excited I can’t keep still. I am beyond blessed. I have had some hiccups, but that is to be expected. God has this all worked out. I must say there is nothing like prayer. When you think you have everything map out and God be like if you don’t sit down. LOL!!! Whatever you are trying to do be patient. God has this. I have to tell myself this all the time. I am so impatient, but I have learned to be. Patience is a virtue. Once again dolls, love God and yourself.
Hello dolls!!! I haven’t been on my blog in a few days. I have been extremely busy. When God put stuff on you that you been asking for and more, you have to put in work with that faith. I am just enjoying every moment. My new found or shall I say always been there love for fashion. This journey is great. A lot of us want a great journey, but what happen is fear. Fear cripples a lot of us. We are afraid to just take that jump. Believe me when I tell you dolls, it is the best thing you can do for yourself. Push fear off the cliff and just jump. As always love the skin your in, nobody can love you like you can.
Hello, Dolls! Every morning I awake, I pray and listen to one of my fave songs called “Hate” by Ledisi. I love that song. It fits me perfect. A line out the song states, ” I am trying to get in a real good space”. I have been trying for a minute to get to that space and I must say I am almost there. I want to feel goid every morning that I wake. I already claimed it that 2018 is my year. I can see it. I have had hard times, but God has brought me through it. This is my time. My time to shine, to be the best me possible. I am so ecstatic about this new journey of mine. Finally, I get to do what is best for me and put myself first. Dolls, just Watch Me Fly!!!
Hello, Dolls! I have always been about body positivity. In today’s society, this is a hard job. The way media and men also think all women is suppose to be this perfect 34-24-34 body. A lie! We are not. This is why self-love is so important. When I first saw this picture above, I said who drew me. LOL!!! That picture is me and a lot of women. We as plus size women need to accept our bodies and love our bodies. I have always loved me. I loved myself even more as I got older. Nobody can do me like I can. Love yourself first. If you see changes you want to be done to your body, please do it for you. Not because society say this is what you are suppose to look like. There is nothing wrong with being healthy and thick. I want all my dolls to love every curve, every stretch mark. When your feet hits the floor every morning, pray and then look in that mirror and blow a kiss to yourself. Nobody can encourage you, like you can. Love the skin your in, dolls!!!!
Hello, hello my dolls! It is my favorite time of year. It’s FALL!!!! I love this time of year. The leaves are turning red, yellow, and orange. The cool breeze. Dolls guess what else is my favorite this time of year! Yes, Fashion! Fall fashion is everything. I love the boots, scarves, and the sweaters. Fall shopping is exciting. The colors. I love the jackets and all the coats. I look forward to see what the new fall color is going to be. Now is the time my dolls to go on that shopping excursion. It is FALLLLL!!!!!!
I have been on this earth for 39 years. It is amazing to me how people are. I mean it’s nothing new, but I’m just always so shocked how people hate to help other people. Where did this jealousy come from? In starting up this boutique, I have seen so much jealousy. You will find out that the people you thought that were for you are actually not. I like to see everyone succeed. If you need my help or information, I will try my best to help with that. This fashion industry or whatever else industry a person is in, it is a cruel industry. I have just learned that recently. I will not count myself out. I am going good and forward. God had this, not me. All I can say is, Watch Me Fly!
Today is the day for thanks and giving. I have been giving and thanking people my whole entire life. Have you ever gave so much that you are exhausted? That was me. I was always the yes girl. Never the no girl. Later on in my adult, this so when my NO became my signature. I had to do what was best for me. I’m so glad I did. Today as I setup all my pages for my business, I was smiling so hard because this was a long time coming. I have always been in love with all things fashion and beauty. I use to tell myself girl you can’t do this. That is when I told my inner voice, NO,I am intelligent, beautiful, and spicy. I can do this. When it is your time, you will also. Suppress that fear and just jump.
This is my very first post. My blog will be about body positivity, fashion, and divorce(small amount). I actually rediscovered myself after my divorce. I was married for 12 years. That marriage drained me. I was depressed. I did not have any get up and go about myself. I prayed and prayed. I asked God to get me through this and show me what I need to do. One day I just left him and grabbed my son and moves to my mother’s house. I must say that night I slept so peacefully. I have been since. I have always loved fashion. I am a BBW. I am proud of it. I love it. There is so much new fashion out her for plus size women than it was 10 to 20 years ago. I just love it. Plus, I love makeup. I am no professional MUA, but I try to do different things. This fashion world is fantastic. This my first post. Let me know what you think. I am so nervous about this exciting journey. God wouldn’t have put in me , if He thought I couldn’t do it.
