Random Life Facts

I have noticed that im really a grown up. Being mommy, daughter, sister, best friend, lover, and a woman is really serious business! i had to sit down and evaluate what really makes me happy.

1. A GOOD book! There is nothing like me putting myself into someone elses drama!

2. Hot steamy bubble bath! ENOUGH SAID.....

3. A nice glass of wine. I love white wine! Any brand will do.

4. Pink eye shadow. I love pink eye shadow! i hardly wear any other color im talking all shades of pink. it just makes me smile :)

5. My neck roll pillow! I MUST have it every night or i cant sleep!

6. My Snuggie! Dont judge me! lol

7. A pedicure. I will never walk around with my toes looking jacked up or rub against my honey with rough sand paper heels. I swear by my Ped Egg. If you dont have one you should!

8. My Mango Colada Body Whip. This stuff seriously transformed my skin from head to toe and the sugar scrub is divine!

9. Pretty Socks. i love socks i always pick them up from the dollar store (they have the cutest) or Walmart.

10. A good cry! I just feel so much better after a good cry!

April Fools Day

There was a time when I used to love to use this day to play pranks on people and spend time with my brother on his bday. But now its not the same since he is no longer around. I miss him so much and still think about him everyday at some point. Death is just one of those things that I will never understand especially since he was just 21. There are so many things that I wish we could be doing together but Im starting not to complain about it. He is in my heart and will live there forever.... I thank God for the years of laughter, fights, and love that we shared. Its hard losing a brother and best friend but it would be worse if I didnt have any memeories.


Happy Birthday

Diet Fad: Apple Cider Vinegar Diet Pills

Okay I can't lie I have tried almost every diet pill out there and I know that I will try more as they become available. So I decided to write a few posts about the things that I've tried and the things that worked (or not) for me.
I will start with the Apple Cider Vinegar diet.

I was introduced to this diet by my beautician who I noticed was just melting pounds away. Every week that I went she was noticeably smaller!! So me always on the hunt to shed vanity weight asked her the secret! So she told me about the pills. I went out to Walmart and picked some up. You get 90 tablets in the jar which seemed like a lot but considering the fact that you take 3 a day (one after each meal)it didn't stretch very far. They come with a food menu that you need 16 eyes to see because the writing is so small. I just stared taking them and didn't really change what I ate. I made sure to drink plenty of water though. After about the first week I did notice that My stomach was flatter and also that I was going to the restroom A LOT!!! They do work I don't know about the claim of increasing metabolism but they work. The only thing I couldn't stand was the awful vinegar smell! It seemed that I had vinegar coming out of my pores and that wasn't cool at all! So if you can stand smelling bitter then this is the choice for you. I never finished the bottle.

Feelings and Friendships

Lets keep It 100 Here.....

At some point in your life you meet someone that you click with and you spend time getting to know that person and BOOM a friendship is formed. That is a good thing because you can never have enough friends...Right?


I find that its absolutely necessary to have friends but you can have too many. everyone doesn't have your best interest at heart. Everyone doesn't want to help you grow. I'm blessed to have people in my life that love me and care about my everyday well being and I'm thankful for that.

I have my online friends and I can't wait to meet them in person. The thing about online friends are they take you at face value and that's LOVE

Valentine's Day

Now don't get me wrong, I love gifts just as much as the next person but I'm a firm believer in showing love all year round! Not just on Feb. 14! I mean is it really necessary to sell those damn bears on the side of the road? I even spotted a man purchasing some random see thru gown at the dollar store! I wanted to ask him would his lady really appreciate him bringing home sleep wear that smells like moth balls?

New Year!

Okay so its a little past January 1st but I couldn't let the month go by without dropping in to say that I will be back to posting here. Last year has really showed me that I can write for myself AND help my sistas out with whatever they need me to do. I got so wrapped up in everyone elses websites that I neglected my own. After talking to a good friend yesterday I realized that I shouldn't worry about the amount of people reading but the quality that I'm putting out there! So expect to see more of me around here.

Need Energy?

1/4 Hydrating Lotion
"whoa!" Invigorating beads that act as little wake-up calls for your skin. The sparkling scent of grapefruit & lemongrass. An ultra-light hydrating gel formula. A get-it-going boost in the morning? Big Time.
Wake Up. Go Fresh.
That's the product description! I'm a sucker for these kind of products! With this one I'm really not impressed :(. It smells great but it seems to have more lotion in it than soap and that's definitely not a good thing for me. I ended up having to re-shower with my trusty Oil of Olay. now If you are the kind of girl that needs that extra moisture this would be great for you. I like getting out of the shower feeling clean not slippery! I rather add moisture by lotion.
