Hi Guys, I just wanted to post a quick note since I haven't done a blog post in forever now! Initially I thought I'd come across one of my mini-breaks but I think I'm going to be away a little longer than anticipated due to some needs for my computer... Continue reading

I just came across this article over at design milk of a salon in Slovenia that has an 80's theme. I so can see me applying to a salon like this if I still worked as a hairstylist. I love design but I also love it when businesses such as... Continue reading

Thanks Nicole! You are so right if I remember correctly you are my goal weight currently...even that I don't stick to too heavily but that's the healthy range for my frame but I imagine even when I get to 190 based on my build I'd look about the size you are now so it's freeing to say the least, getting rid of the old mentalities of being a set weight or getting on that scale or dieting etc. Focusing on getting it off and also praying about when to stop or keep going. Also don't want to be on the opposite end of embracing weight that's killing me. I pray you have continued success as well and you've motivated me to let go of my gym membership and I'll use the money I would have paid for next month to get my 1st workout vid! I'll update during next month's measures!
Hi Regena, Thank you yes I'm learning that if I can find a way to get the foods in that I love and still lose weight I do so without feeling like I'm making a drastic change. There is a change there and I do have to say no in a sense but more times than not it's making one choice over another vs. feeling deprived. I figure as long as I don't have to do that type of restriction and that's a bit of motivation as well because I don't want to be in such an unhealthy state that it becomes medically necessary to cut out certain foods. Thanks for your kind words Regena and I pray that you'll have much success in your health journey as well!

About a week ago I was having a conversation with a coworker and she made a statement that her hairstylist friend has good hair. It was one of those conversations that started one way and ended another, we were talking about something totally unrelated but somehow she ended up sharing... Continue reading

I've come to realize that in my time of blogging I have yet to do a post focusing on design! It could be a reflection of the fact that little design work has been going down in my own life however I'd like to change the fact that I haven't... Continue reading

Lily did you say lack of public trans? In Philly? I hate SEPTA but they're everywhere unfortunately unless we're talking the time they begin/end service which I think it's crazy that at least the trains don't run all night.

Tell Ruby anytime she'd like to take some of this cold back to Cali she's more than welcome to do so LOL. She's so precious everytime you'd post a photo of her on instagram I'd show my daughter and she'll roll her eyes up in her head (she's 16) now she's like oh there's Ruby let me see the pic:) I knew she'd catch on to the cuteness:):)

I came across a great post last night over at https://princesswarriorjourney.wordpress.com titled Good Gifts from the Father and as the titled would imply the author Heidi shares with us God's goodness towards her in spite of a painful trial she's experiencing. Within her story, Heidi describes how what she's going... Continue reading

@ Antionette thank ya much! @TFE thanks:) You are so on point, my writing skills use to be better than they are now actually. Getting out of the habit of writing like I do plus a data entry driven position makes a huge difference. As I'm writing the book I realized I had to not concern myself with any grammatical issues, plan on investing in a great proofreaders (God has already been opening doors in that area as well:))and get all down. It's going well and I'm trying not to make the process longer than it need be with my analytical self!:)

Hi Sybil it is quite the undertaking! I decided to sit down, write everything out without thinking to much about it. I think once I realized I'd need an editor to make sure I'm not butchering the English language too badly, and God began to show me some editors it allowed me to approach the possibility more freely. I'd otherwise type out maybe a paragraph and then over think what was said nope I'll let it sound a hot mess but get it on paper, edit everything myself first and then pass it on to a pro to finalize it all. We shall see how it goes!:)
