REWIND****The Big Chop

Okay so it has been quite a while since I did the big chop but I found these old pics. I am amazed at how much my hair has grown since then. I love being happily natural.


I have been so busy with school, work, family, moving and social organizations that I have not blogged since July. That is so sad. I am determined to at least start blogging once a week.

From looking at my recent posts I am starting to realize how much I need to start wearing more makeup. On most days I will at least wear mascara, bronzer and lipgloss but I realized from these pics how pale I look even when wearing these products. I have always wanted more color and when I look in the mirror I feel like I look okay but then when I see the pictures of myself, I am not pleased. I have never liked taking pics because I always feel like I look bigger than I actually am. My hubby always makes me feel better by saying people always look bigger in pics. He can be so sweet. Here are a couple of pics where I do have on more makeup those most days. I still need to practice more with the whole makeup technique. I would love some advice!!!

This is around Christmas time when me and the family went to see the Christmas lights.

Also around Christmas time. My husband and I were on our way to a holiday dance.


For the past few weeks I have been letting my hair airdry but I decided to blow it out and see what it looked like. Here it is!!!

Statement Pieces

I have noticed lately that I have become so bored with my clothes and since I am trying to cut back on shopping, I have started wearing more big bold necklaces. I love shopping at F21, ForLove 21 and Charlotte Russe for the big bold statement necklaces. They also inspire me with my own jewelry designs. These are my two favorite F21 pieces right now. You can see my little stinker in the first pic. She is my little diva.

Back From the Beach

Last Friday was my birthday so my husband took me to Virginia Beach. The weather started off terrible but we ended up having a great time. Uhh the water was great. It felt so good being away from the kids and reality. I can't wait to go back and I am already planning a trip to return with the kids. Yeah and excuse the dates. My camera dates are always wrong.
