Nothing to hide - part II

Remember the rude photographer from last night, well he struck again.  As much as I would love to post his response and my response to his response, it was really long and I really don't want to get into that madness anymore.  However, at the end of me sending the email, I blocked him from all social networking accounts and even my email.  The funny part is that he blocked me from sending him a response on the site he found me on so that's why I had to find his email.  He made it easy, it was on his business page.  LOL.  Dummy.  

So, I spoke my peace.  I have never in my life been attacked on social media.  I guess that I should use this as practice for the next time it happens because I am sure this will not be the last time.  But, I actually feel sorry for him and his business.  Does he think that making people feel bad about himself is good for business?  If I was mean spirited, I could make his life a living hell.  However, I chose to pray for him instead.  In fact, I even told him that I was praying for him. 

I don't understand how people sleep at night after being so mean and cruel to people.  I did nothing to him.  I had never spoken to this man in my life.  The funny part is that this is the first person to annoy me after me learning to be comfortable with myself.  At least now I have the skills that are needed in order for me to face some of the horrible people in the world.  

I ended my email by telling him that I was going to pray for him.  I am going to do just that before I close my eyes tonight.  Pray for your enemies, right?  Yep, I have learned that lesson in more ways than one.  Truthfully, for the past 8 days, Satan has been on me big time, but I a standing on the word and love of God.  That photographer isn't going to break me and no one else is going to get that chance either.  

Watch out world, Shayla Em is here!!!

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…
