Fashion Sin No More!

If you have been paying attention on twitter the past week, you have known a few things - I was excited about going to be out with my friends last night and I was going to commit a fashion sin and I really didn't care about it.  So, how was the event?  The event was great and I looked too cute.  

What did I wear?  I wore white after Labor Day - a white dress at that.  It was around this time last year I wrote a post about rocking your color.  I don't know if I put it out there then, but let me put it out there now - I never wore white before.  I personally don't think I look good in white...until this year.  I took a risk, bought a white dress, and it looked great on me last night.  I've had this dress all summer and last night was the first time I wore it.  In fact, the tags were still on it until last night.  

You cannot see the entire outfit because I took a famous selfie in the car, but you can see enough of the white.  However, there is another photo that I wish I had gotten.  When we got to the event, there was another plus diva there in white shorts!  Now, I had a pair of those too, but the shirt I was going to wear with it made it look like I didn't have on any shorts (LOL).  

But what did I learn last night?  There is NO rule about wearing white after Labor Day.  Well, at least in my book there is no rule.  If that is what you want to do, then rock the hell out of some white all year long, even in the snow.  Whatever your style is, just be you and don't let anyone else tell you that you shouldn't wear it.  

By the way, if you have been keeping up with my white fashion struggles, this is something you remember.  I'm still not interested in wearing white on my wedding day, but that is obviously a long way out. A very long way out.

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
