In My Emotions; Sorry

I haven't neglected my blog (that will probably never happen). I've been browsing blogs, commenting, and following those that spark an interest in me (just thought I should throw that out there). I've come to a lot of self realization lately.

It's not that I've never realized that I have certain issues and or problems, it's just that I don't have a "outlet" so to speak. Don't get me wrong I have my lovely Honey, and about 2 good friends that I can share just about anything with, but besides GOD, it's just me.

I started my blog because after I seen my 1st plus size fashion blog ever, it was just an natural feeling for me to do likewise. Not that my mind doesn't expand, but I didn't even think stuff like this exist. To be perfectly honest, blogging has changed my life. Yeah, it's that deep.

To be inspired by so many beautiful women who have showed me that BEAUTY comes in all shapes and sizes, has been a big deal to me. Don't get me wrong, I do think highly of myself and how I look, and I'm not throwing a pity party because I'M FAT ♥..I'm just saying, something has got to give.

Things that I ponder include;

-I'm bi-polar; I don't really think I can help it though. I don't know if it's just my personality, but I don't like it.

-I'm not 100% sure about my career path. At times, I am, and I'm soooo excited that I can't sleep, then other times it's me questioning God about what i'm suppose to do with this life of mine.

-Insecurites has began to come, little by little, but they're there. Sometimes I'm scared to sit in a chair or on a bed because I don't wanna break it. I try to wear 3/4 length sleeves so ppl can't see my arms (this just happened..like overnight). I never wear shorts

- I love my Honey with my all, and I wouldn't mind spending a lot of my life with him, but that's not the same as spending your life with someone. I guess i'm scared of saying "I DO", then coming across problems in the future or falling out of love. He is the greatest and i'm soooo in love with him, but is this what I really want?

-Why can't I push myself more or find the motivation to do the right things and go down the right path to be more healthy? It's really all I think about. I often dream about it to, the day that i'm tons of pounds lighter and not worrying about buying something because it's too clingy.

I'm sorry my thoughts are all over the place, and I don't really care if anyone reads this (this is probably the most i've talked on my entire blog..LOL) this was just a vent session for me, and now I feel a little better..IDK...Have Blessed evenings everyone!

F.Y.I....I cried the entire time I wrote this..just thought I would share.

Below: Took this pics when I went to my baby sister Dalice's induction into the National Junior Honor Society. Enjoy!

Dress: Avenue
Shoes: K-Mart
Belt: Dots

My baby sister Dalice. I dressed her and did her makeup, not to much, she's only 12!!

♥ Throw it in the MAKEUP Bag!

How Many Make-Up Bags Do You Have?!?!

Today in "Sunny" Florida it rained for the ENTIRE DAY!! So, I didn't get a chance to even leave my house. I wanted to go to my niece's birthday gathering, but it didn't happen.

Looking at my MAKE UP BAGS I decided to have some fun. I don't have any close friends here so it's kind of funny asking my Honey about this and that.

I bought some new makeup recently so I decided to just G E T  F A C E D! Enjoy

So when I used the foundation that I ordered from E.L.F. it was horrible. Point.Blank.Period. So I went to Wal-Mart and found this. It's Covergirl TRUblend. It's really smooth and blends well with my color. I'm using the #6/470 Toasted Almond. Highly recommended if you're looking for a new foundation.

I'm a big fan of gold & bronze shades of all kinds for my eyes. I try different shades every now and then, but I can't help it!!

Can't really tell the difference? Me either.

From Wal-Mart $6 .This is the Hard Candy Collection, Of course I got the gold one and it make the Mineral shadow from E.L.F to pop even more.

 I didn't put it all over, just on my eyelids.

I love love love love love love lip gloss, especially the edible ones! LOL This is just some Bath & Body Works (Beauty Rush) & Victoria Secrets(Liplicious).

All in all my Saturday was FAN-TAB-ULUS!

Hairy Situations: HELP!!

I've been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do with my H A I R. I LOVE my hair, but I don't like it??..IDK if that really makes sense, but yeah. 4 years of dealing with these C U R L S is starting to get boring. Maybe I should add some C O L O R?!?!

Suggestions PLEASE!! :o)

My curls aren't as neat as they can be, but you get the idea. This morning, I wet my hair, threw in a little conditioner and started my day. As a matter of fact,  that's pretty much the routine 6 days out of the week..LOL

This was the last time that I got my hair straightened, and trimmed. It was down my back, then I had to get my ends trimmed. Enjoy!

My Store : U P D A T E

sooo things have begin to come in that I've ordered for my store....

Hopefully the website will be up and running by August (but i'm kind of doubting it) I've taken on so many projects right now that it's gonna kinda be I M P O S S I B L E. I kinda have a "business partner" so let's just see if she can take the weight of running the store!!

I've decided to change the name of the store to ....

and change the name of my clothing line to...

this works out so much better, and besides, it's my P E R O G A T I V E :o)

sooo i'll be showing you gals some of my work maybe later this week and also sharing with you the trials and tribulations of putting together my first runway show...

This is very much so in the "pre-mature" stages but I promise it will be thebomb.com!! i'm super excited about it and I'm trying my best NOT to make it a priority right now. Later I will be posting more details about this show. I haven't made up my mind which city it will be in, but I kind of have an idea.

This show will have 10 slots for plus-size fashion designers to showcase their work/designs. It will also be open to vendors to promote/ their product. More details on this Fashion Show coming soon.

 It will be early next year or the end of 2011. Which gives T I M E to make this event perfect. I would love for you to participate, this is really open to anyone who desires to make clothes!

Haul It in : E.L.F (Eyes.Lips.Face.)

Soooo originally I ONLY went to this website to order me an eyebrow stencil, because i'm tired of paying $7 and them still not looking how I want them to look!!  Going to this website is kinda like a trip to Wal-Mart. You go in only to get a "couple" of things and walk out with a basket full!! Well, atleast I do.

Anyways, by the time I was done placing my order I didn't only have and eyebrow stencil..G O F I G U R E :o)..Enjoy!!

I bought:

Eyebrow Stencil

Foundation Brush

Brushing, Bronzing, Blending Brush


Matte Bronze

Dark Foundation

Golden Blush

Mocha Mineral Eyeshadow

And I didn't go Broke!!

E.L.F. is definately a way to play with make-up without going broke!
