On a personal note......

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone has been enjoying the weekend and cold weather! This is something that I've been seeing a lot of lately and I'm kinda fed up with it. I honestly debated on writing about it but it has been on my mind for a while and I just had to write about it. I've been trying to wrap my head around why women do more tearing down of each other instead of being more supportive. I see a lot of this on social media and it's sickening. One thing I saw was a recent YouTuber that hit 1 million and an Instagram page posted a picture of her congratulating her and the comments where so uncalled for and ridiculous. People were basically saying that because she's light skin, she's not black and just being straight up ignorant for no reason. You just couldn't say congratulations on her hitting a milestone, you had to be disrespectful for no reason. I just can't understand why people feel the need to be Internet bullies and say whatever they feel in the comments of people's pages. If you don't like the person, video or picture.....just ignore it. I see a lot of this in my community and I'm tired of it. I'm supportive of everyone, no matter what it is you are doing, what color you are or anything. It is just sad. I'm sick of the battle of natural hair vs relaxed hair. I have had both and just so happens that my hair being in its natural state works better for me. I don't bash anyone that still relaxes their hair, I'm supportive of healthy hair. I'm sick of the light skin vs dark skin. We are all the same race, does it really matter??? We don't support each other enough and then complain about not seeing enough of us hitting 1 million on YouTube or on social media or business owners. We don't support each other!! On the other side of it, I do see women supporting each other, reposting each other, purchasing their products and saying nothing but genuine and good things about them. Why can't we see more of that around? Why can't we just use our good judgment or common sense? I don't know what is wrong with some people. I'm going to continue to be supportive of everyone, even if I don't get the support back. It is okay because I know who I have in my corner and who truly supports me. I'm so appreciative of everyone who has been trying to help me with this blog and make it better and giving me that constructive criticism.I'm going to be more supportive of my fellow bloggers and YouTubers.  I love blogging and hope to start doing tutorials soon. I know that ignorant comments do come with that and ignorant people.I'm surprised that I have 31 subscribers on YouTube and hope to gain more. I hope to gain more readers and commenters on my blog. Its okay if I have a little or huge following. I do this because I love it. I hope that women can come together more and be more supportive instead of tearing each other down.

I'm sorry but I just needed to say something about this. Hey this is my platform here and feel like I should be more personal sometimes and speak about things.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you guys tomorrow.

  1. It's very seems a lot of people don't want to see someone happy or doing better than them. I don't like seeing the disrespect myself :(

    1. I just don't understand it, hopefully things will get better someday! Thanks for stopping by E!!

  2. I agree, we should be supporting and uplifting one another not tearing one another down! I so know the struggle with light skinned vs dark skinned. I have had deal with that a lot growing up. Fantastic post Andrea and I'm looking forward to you tutorials!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
