So Valentine's day is coming.....
No need to be a bitter Betty, on the 14th (or the following days)....
I have alternative for you too!
Gather your favorite 3 good girlfriend, your PJs, some salty snacks you are going to regret eating,some cheap wine and ENJOY YOURSELF! A good old fashioned slumber party occupies your time,gets you out the house,and is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Valentine's day is about celebrating love,and whats better than the love from your drunken girlfriends?
'Me and this "guy" had a real strange relationship
It's like... we had some kind a power to eachother
I mean, I remember this one time... he called, it had to be like
Four in the morning. it's was like pouring rain outside and I was nocked out
But it was like when I heard his voice something got me out of bed.
And I had to come to him. And it was like.... whenever you call, I came running' - Ashanti
So in about two weeks some of you are going to be scrambling for that perfect 'I love you' or 'Im going to buy you this gift to avoid an argument' gift.......
So for those of you want to skip the little blue boxes,imported chocolates and 47 dozen roses(that you recipient doesn't even know how to take care of,lol),or simply can't afford it....
I have once again compiled a list for the perfect BUDGET FRIENDLY Valentines day......
A home cooked meal; with all the moving, school, late hours,etc I have to admit I can be a bit of a 'Carry Out Queen',so Im not always able to cook like I would....... So a simple meal from the heart, moderately priced wine,and a yummy dessert can take so little time but say so much....'Its the little things'; They always say the little things count,so why not compile a gift basket or box of the little things s/he loves? The favorite body wash that he can never find,that nail polish that she ran out of that looks amazing …
You know how we all have those New Years resolutions that we never keep up??
......I guess this year is slightly different for me? Instead of making the resolution that Im going to stop opening credit cards, do better in school,stop eating candy,etc....
I have decieded that I am going to be honest,
Not saying that I am some kinda of liar.
But I want to be just as real as I am with everyone else.....with myself.
The first step started with my previous blog,
I am adding structure to my life,and if you know me.....well you know I need it.
I do what I want, I always have.....
Now I am discovering just what kind of woman I am.
Which is tricky,
I don't like to talk about things,I hate conflict,I'd rather sweep things under the rug,
I'd honestly rather laugh about.......eh everything.
I always 'save face' in every situation,I feel like I have to be a lady, I don't beer or wear sweats outside my home.
I have been battling with the idea of going to graduation for the past several months, but as of lately I have been getting super excited for my first (and not my last) COLLEGE graduation.....
So of course I need a dress.....Something fab, something sexy,something a size smaller!..... Something simply Cookii. I mean its graduation for a fashion degree,I have to look AMAZING..... So join me on me on my own quest to ' Say yes to the dress'.....
The famous Monif C Marilyn convertable dress; $215 So its kinda pricey, but it can be tied about 12 different ways and I could be totally on trend with the black or white.
Now this is slightly longer than I actually want,but its beautiful......I love a good maxi dress and I feel like I would wear it again? Igigi.com :$205
Monif C is doing no wrong this season and is COMPLETELY on trend....Now this one has sleeves ,cold shoulders and is long so Im not sure if its the best look for graduation,but maybe it would be a good gift?LOL Monifc.com ; $198
I've always prided myself with the ability to being able to be confident in my physical appearance , or being able to alter it to appease myself.
I didn't like my hair
....I bought all the hair money could buy
I didn't like my lashes
.....I bought enough mascara, faux lashes and xtreme lashes to last two years.
I didn't like my breast (I know,yea right)
......Tried every bra on in Lane Bryant and bought six of them
I didn't like my option for plus size clothing
........I sought out exclusive pieces and designer clothing
I have also been fortunate enough to be surrounded by people who have always thought I was beautiful....Which is a gift and a curse......
A gift in a sense that not everyone has a circle or a support system like I do. I have amazing parents who made sure they told how beautiful I was everyday,I was never really teased as a child about my size, and my friends have always praised my beauty,confidence,etc.
So what is the curse?
Eh,such praise and atten…
