To my fans!

Well, I know I have been quiet for a few weeks.  For those of you that know me, you know that sometimes, I have to take some time to get recharged and get ready for my next step.  Yes, I'm being quiet, but my mind is always working.  I'm thinking about what you want to read.  I'm thinking about what I want to write.  I'm thinking about how vulnerable I want to be with you.  I'm thinking about all these things that can make my blog better.  For instance, a few weeks ago, I changed the format of my blog and I haven't seen any complaints.  I change things to make them easier for you because I value you all and you all have been such an amazing support group for me.  Why do I call you a support group?  Well, you share in my joys, you laugh at my silliness, and most of all, you are there for me what I need that extra boost.  Support group, family, whatever you want to call it, that is what you are to me.  What I am saying is this, don't worry when I get quiet - just know that I am going to come back better than ever!  I have plenty to say concerning life, fashion, my weight loss journey, and whatever else you want me to talk about.  It is so simple - leave me a comment on here, send me a tweet on twitter (click on the link to your right to follow me and tweet me), or even find me on Instagram at TheShaylaEm.  Now that you know how to find me, find me.  I look forward to hearing from you and cannot wait to see what you would like me to write about.  Love you, guys!  You make making this personal journey public so worth it!

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.…

Tasty Tales - Cheesy Zucchini Breadsticks

I posted one of my dinner dishes on my Instagram page this week and you seemed to have really loved it.  I've never had so many DMs asking me for a recipe.  Since you wanted the recipe, I've decided to share it here in a post.  I can't tell you how I Tameika-ized it because I've made it differently each time I've made it.  However, I can give you the basics and what I've learned.

I'm Ready 8255

In the same week, the industry lost two icons.  One has graced our closet and phone cases for years, while the other was invited into our homes on a weekly basis.  These two deaths reminded us of how life can seem so perfect, yet one is hurting on the inside.  The response to both suicides was overwhelming and once again, it got a very taboo conversation started.  On the other hand, it also brought out the ugly.

It's been a couple of weeks since all of this happened and the commotion has since come to a minimum.  You are probably wondering why has she waited until now to talk about this?  It's simple - I wasn't ready.  As a survivor, I wasn't ready.  As someone who faces anxiety on a daily basis, I wasn't ready.  As a blogger disappointed in some of the people in the blogger community, I'm ready.

My social media may or may not light up because of this post, but I'm going to say it anyway.  I'm highly disappointed in some of my fellow bloggers.  While we…
