The cuddle buddy

I've actually been thinking about writing this for a while, but really didn't know how to approach it.  Even though I am a writer and a lot of people consider me a member of the press, I still feel the need to be respectful.  Respect me, I respect you.  However, I don't know how this post is going to sound because of the subject matter.  So let me go ahead and hit you with a disclaimer, if you are sensitive or you think I may hurt your feelings, please don't even worry about finishing reading this.  Continue at your own risk.  Yep, I'm just that real.  

I've been thick my entire life.  It's just something I am used to.  Even the size that I want to get down to is still considered plus and I am perfectly fine with that.  But the one thing that I get tired of hearing every single year is that winter is big girl season.  If the cold weather is the only reason you are trying to be with someone so you can stay warm, get your life.  The thing is, there are some thick chicks that are insecure and will actually fall for that foolishness.  Then when April comes, they feel lower than dirt because the guys that loved them so much in the winter are now ready for the bodies of the summer.  

Fellow thick ladies, there are guys out there that are going to love us for exactly who we are.  They are going to be able to see past our outward features and look deep into our souls.  When we have someone like that, we should be happy and proud to love them.  Yeah, I know I said that evol word, but it fits in this moment.  

Stop getting caught up in this winter madness.  Go buy a coat and some boots, rock that ish with a banging outfit, and find someone that is going to stick around for all four seasons over and over again.  Doesn't that sound nice?  I know that it sounds perfect to me.  And if you do get cold at night, hold on to a teddy bear or a pillow.  I've had a particular bear since I made a visit to the hospital during my 9th birthday and I hold him each night.

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…
