On a personal note....

I was in the craft store one day getting new fabric for a backdrop when this couple walks up to get in line. We greet each other and the woman says "Wow you have a nice head of healthy hair, its beautiful". I said thank you and she goes on to say "It's nice to see our sisters wearing their natural hair instead of all that weave, its damaging to your hair". I just nodded because I didn't agree with her statement and was so glad my number was called right after that. She just could of left it at the complement but I honestly don't understand why women do that. I honestly do not care how you wear your hair, as long as you are happy with it and it works for YOU. I have worn weave before, my hair used to be relaxed before I decided to go natural and I always change up my hair. Why bash someone else because of how they choose to wear their hair? We are supposed to be about unity, support and togetherness and it hurts me sometimes to see women tearing each other down and bashing each other. I guess I may never understand it but I'm about supporting everyone and wanting to see everyone succeed and make it. Everyone is unique and different for a reason and in a good way. I love those women who rock their unique style in confidence and go by their own rules and don't let anyone tell them that they are not "society" standards and keep their head held up high. We all have to have that mentality sometimes. I love being me and love my wild natural hair and makeup and style and so glad I have grown into loving it. I am happy that I made that decision with my hair because it works better for me and I can always straighten my hair if I want (sometimes I miss it but it is too much work lol) and go back to curly or wear braids or a weave if I want. You do what is best for you and don't let anyone tell you different.

    1. Yes, I just don't understand some people sometimes. Thanks for reading Tanya!!

  2. You know something, I've been told that too. How my natural hair is so beautiful and the no weave wearing comment etc. I think that it's crazy to say things like that! It's your hair and you can wear it how you want! I love my natural hair, but I also like to switch things up!

    1. I know right! Its like just leave it at the nice complement and keep the other stuff to yourself. Thanks Pilar!!

  3. Exactly! Wear what makes you happy.

    1. Agreed! Its about you and only doing what is best for you! Thanks for stopping by Jackie!!

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…
