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.

Last week had some pretty awesome moments for me! I got featured on some pretty large pages: Dark and Lovely, Midget Giraffe, Shop Zuvva, ,Asoebiafrica, and Asoebibella. I got more collaboration requests and the blog was seeing more numbers than it has ever seen. I was geeked for Saturday because I was shooting for the 1st time with a new photographer at the beach. I was up until 12 trying to prep my blog looks , clean my house, and prep my hair. I had to be at 4:45 am to do my makeup and get my family on the road by 6.The excitement push the fatigue into an afterthought.
I know Mothers Day was Sunday , but I am very unorthodox in my means of celebrating.Todays post is all about mom’s who I love , admire and inspire me.Can you tell which Mega Mogul Mommy inspired this look? I will give you a hint.IT’S BEYONCE!
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
