Guess what?

I love pocketbooks.  I love shoes.  Some would even call it an addiction.  When it comes to my pocketbooks, I love a particular brand name.  I cannot help it.  I just love their stuff.  Well, today, I decided to treat myself.  I will tell you the store later on in this post, but for right now, let me tell you the story.  

I was so excited today because I had been looking online for a particular pocketbook and I was going to the store to get it.  When I walked in to this store, I didn't see the pocketbook I was looking for - it's bright pink so I would have noticed it immediately.  The sale associate was very helpful and when I described the bag to him, he let me know that it was no longer in the store, but that I should look around to see if something else caught my eye.  Well of course I was going to do that (LOL).  Well, a few other things did catch my eye, but I was trying to stay on budget.  Well, he let me look around for a while and then he came back to check on me.  He asked me if I had seen anything and I told him, "yes, but I really had my heart set on that pink bag".  After making a few more looks, I saw one that caught my eye and the price was right up my alley.  By the time he made it back to me, I was holding a pocketbook and a wallet.  He smiled and took them to the counter for me while I kept looking. Well, I ended up finding another pocketbook and wallet.  It was a perfect shopping trip for me, for more than one reason.  

The store I was in today way Guess.  Even though I have always shopped in that store for my pocketbooks and some shoes, sometimes because I know they don't sell clothing in my size, I felt like people (not the associates) would look at me funny and wonder why I was in the store.  However, today was different.  I don't know if it was because I was the only person shopping in the store or because both associates, especially the guy, made me feel so welcomed or because I am starting to get some confidence in how I look. 

I know that I cannot wear anything in Guess (and so did the associates), but the fact that I was not looked down upon today was a really great moment for me and that made for a perfect experience.  When I walked out the store with my 4 items, I felt so wonderful.  Now, I saw some smaller people looking at me funny when I walked out the store with my large bag, but I didn't care.  I was happy and I had found what I was looking for, almost.  

So to Guess, especially those associates, THANK YOU for making me feel welcomed to shop in the store and for not making me feel like I didn't belong.  It's not like that at all stores and you are to be commended.


Just in case you were wondering, these are the new goodies in my collection.  You can find them at your Guess store or online.

Big body, big hair

Earlier this week, I was cruising around the twitterverse and noticed a cool shirt floating around.  The shirt said, no you cannot touch my hair.  I thought it was funny, but it is a huge thing in the natural hair community that people do not like for their hair to be touched.  I might be the weird one because it honestly doesn't bother me.  Now, just don't come up to me and touch my hair, but if you ask and I'm feeling a bit friendly (LOL), I just might let you feel these beautiful natural curls that God so graciously gave me.  

In my opinion, my hair is awesome.  However, after my transition from processed to natural, I didn't always feel that was the case.  I was so used to my hair being straight and long.  But, I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter until I eventually did the big chop and I became 100% natural.  

I guess now, I feel more confident.  As the years have passed, I've been more confident in my body and now I'm a lot more confident in my hair.…

The Outsiders

It has been too much going on in the blogging world recently.  I mean, I know that any press is good press, but this might have been too much.  Then add it on top of that, you get people who don't blog chiming in talking about you're just doing it to get free stuff or get a real job or find something to do with your spare time.  Let me answer all three of those - I've been writing in The Plus Diaries for almost five years and have proudly made 25 dollars (by accident), I do work a full-time job with great benefits, and writing is just one of the things I do in my spare time.  For you nosey people, I also do crafts, travel, and currently studying for a couple of tests in my free time.  



Blogging is supposed to be fun!  That's why I got into it in the first place.  But trust me, I salute all the wonderful bloggers out there making money off their blogs.  That's awesome to me!  You are doing what you love and making money off it?  If the quote is true and they really l…

The Big Bang

It's been a while.  It truly has been a while.  I am typically great about telling you when I am taking a blogging break, but sometimes, life just comes at your fast.  At the end of January, life came at me hella fast.  Had it not been for the one blog post I had already written and set up to post, you would not have heard from me when you did.  But, I'm getting back to my feet and feeling more and more like my normal self.  

I know what you are thinking - what happened?!  Well, that's for me to know and for you to never find out.  There are some things in my life that I would rather keep personal and this is one of those times.  I've told the people who need to know and it will go no further than that.  But, let's get one to some fun stuff.  

I still have been active on my Instagram and Twitter pages.  I promised to keep you all updated on my weight loss madness that is happening and I've been trying to do so.  I don't want to turn into one of those people w…
