So by now everyone has heard Wild thoughts by DJ Khaled , Bryson Tiller, and Bajan bae and everything Riri!! I’m not gonna lie at first I was like, “yea, ok I have heard this all before” ;the singing repetition , DJ Khaled yelling ‘another one’ in the back and Bryson Tiller singing Trap Soul all over the place , and not to mention that banging ass Carlos Santana guitar solo *rips off all my clothes. Am I the only one that has the urge to peel off my clothes when he plays the guitar? Really, just me? *looks around Oh well then. Then after I stopped looking for reasons not to like the song because of what seems (to me) its lack of originality and realized how much it reminded me of how much I love ‘Maria Maria’ by Carlos Santana. That feeling alone made me think of how sometimes reflecting and remixing the past can bring up great feelings of nostalgia as well as bring something older to a newer generation. For that alone I had to download both songs and listen to them back to back.
Can I just say how over everything I am this week? Nothing has gone right and frankly I am quite over it.It has really been one of those weeks. Usually I can admit when I am being a little on the dramatic side but I am sincerely over it right now, just OVER IT! Allow me to compla— I mean explain.
Well I have reached my favorite F-word (after food of course), Friday!!! I have been busting my lil humps all week! You can’t possibly imagine all the things I have had on my plate (other than food, of course).Well Monday I was so sick I left work after 2 hours and then as I was at home in bed all day I realized I was over this dry ass fro of mine.So Tuesday I made up my mind to do my hair but that didn’t go as planned but it’s finally done (as of 15 mins ago).I will tell you all about it next week.On top blog posting I am trying to make sure I am eating right because you know, Im preganant.I still had IG posting and blogging duties all while being just pregnant tired and trying to binge watch my latest guilty pleasure on Netflix, The Unbreakable Kimmy Scmidt(I know, Im late).Titus Andramedon is my new spirit animal.Yesterday I was caught up in my daughter’s scalp because it looked like she had ringworms.Of course I blamed those nasty kids at her school, but lucklily the doctor said its more like dermitis.I’m still blaming the nasty kids at her school.My scalp stay on fleek.Today after work I am heading over to my besties house to do makeup for her stepdaughters bday .I also have a really biiiiiiigggg shoot coming up this weekend I have been prepping for.It’s for a magazine guys! *squeals and pants for breath as I am tired just thinking about it.Did I mention the unanswered emails and messages I have yet to respond to ?
2 months in and things don’t necessaritly change dracstically, but more so awkwardly.My body is currently in a roller coaster of hot and cold, I am nauseous and tired all day errday, and my body…Lord my body chile.The first trimester brings the heaviest feelings of yucky inside and out.In addition to battling morning sickness I am now looking at my body like ‘girl, wasup?’
So if you haven't had a chance to read my latest IG posts (cuz so many just like the pic and keep scrolling) I AM PREGNANT! I am with child yall! I know it may sound like a surprise to some because I never really shared that I may want another child.The funny thing is I did, eventually lol.This pregnancy was not planned...by me for the most part lol.It takes two to get knocked up and apparently my husband was low key scheming on ya Caribbean cowgirl.
So where have I been? What I been doing all week?
Well let’s see, I almost passed out ay work found out I’m on the dehydrated tip.Me and the heat aren’t getting along too well.For this reason I am laying low on the blog for a bit, sorry.
You know what they say, all is fair in love in photography (no one says that I think).I am usually going on and on about myself in posts, but today consider the visuals as a part of an artist showcase as I narrate (in my Morgan Freeman voice) the great person behind each photograph of this post and every one of my posts.I will also hit on our rocky work relationship and how it always seems to come together.If you haven’t noticed I kinda post,well a lot.There is a lot of work that goes into staging each look (well kinda sorta) so for those who have been asking , here ya go.
Do you love Zara, but feel like the prices are getting a lil too much ? Are you too impatient waiting for their sales? Well join the cub, sis! You are far from alone.For far too long Zara has been harassing my pockets with their tempting prints, and street style silhouttes.Of course they have had me in their grips for far too long and I am sick of it.I found a way out from my fashion /high fashion knockoff dependency of them and into a lower priced street style "inspired' deal of sorts.
You know the old saying 'if at first you don't succeed, try again.' Persistence and patience are the key they said.When I tell you patience is a virtue, that is an understatement.
Have you noticed you IG isn’t poppington like it used to? Are you going hard on the hashtags and it’s not working? Do you feel like you are in IG jail? Well you are not alone. Your fears are valid folks. Instagram is acting brand new.
