Spring 2014 Must Haves...

As usual, Im doing the most trying to 'reinvent' my look....
Which is a totally struggle,considering I wear black 10months out of the year.....
I know,I shouldn't be that way considering I studied fashion,do visual merchandising,and not afraid to style bold looks...
I just don't do well with change, hence why the next few weeks are going to be a struggle(but that's a story for another blog)

I'm trying new hair colors
 I'm still using Lace Xclusive hair( s/o to,but now I have introduced SPLAT and ADORE color into my life......

I'm teaching myself new tricks
I have a friend who can literally watch a YT video and learn to do ANYTHING in probably less time then the video actually took to make.So I have been rescently taking classes a YouTube University and have learned to color virgin hair,make clip in hair extensions, and soon make lipstick out of crayons!

Bolder lipsticks..... 
My current favorites are Harlem Knights from Kaoir, Heroine and HauteCore from MAC.
Which reminds me I need to hurry up and get SNOB and CANDY YUM YUM as well?

Now for clothing,I am actually taking my time due to a career change(a story for another blog),I am on the prowl for a complete new wardrobe but...

You knew there was a 'but'...
I am looking to break out of my normal stomping grounds (Torrid,Lane Bryant,etc),because I have gotten bored. So I have searched high and low on instagram,Youtube,luvocracy,etsy,etc to complile my list of a few of my 'Spring 2014 Must Haves'

You ready?

Any time BIG is on a plus size shirt,I want all parts of it. I typically do not wear peplums because they were never quite my thing but I may have to break on this one.

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my sy

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date. The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days.... Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree? So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education. via GIPHY I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit.......... I was scared. Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying. While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain... I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like
