Let's get to it

Alright, plus beauties, straight size beauties, and all fabulous beauties of the world - Happy New Year!!!  Yeah, I know that we are 8 days into 2015, but since this is my first post of the year, I had to say it.  

So, I don't know if you have noticed in all of my blogs, but around November, I go into a serious writing drought.  I don't know if it is because that is the beginning of what I consider my holiday season (I start at Halloween) or another reason.  I just know that my writing seems to slow down in all of my blogs and my last post, until I do my year end post, is typically late October or early November.  

As for this blog, fashion doesn't slow down - at least for me it doesn't.  I am always trying to figure out what I look good in (not trying to be a brat or anything), but that is just what I do.  I like to take risks with my outfits.  I like to push the envelope and make people do a serious double take.  I just like what my style says about me and I like it when someone can look at me and take a guess at what my mood is.  

I guess the end of the year makes me really think about what I direction I want to go in the next year concerning my writing.  Well, let me tell you what I am thinking about this blog for this year.  I want to be more open with you about my fashion choices, my life as a whole, some things you might think might be too personal (but I'm going to go there), have more interaction with you (twitter and instagram @TheShaylaEm) and some other things that I think just might be fun.  

The first thing that I was thinking that might be fun would be for you to ask me some questions and I give you some answers.  For that reason, I am asking you to reach out to me (see previous paragraph with my contact info for the social networks).  I want you to ask me questions and give me comments and let me know what you are thinking.  I really want more interaction with you this year.  I didn't get to interact with you a lot in 2014, well at least not concerning this blog, and I really want that to change.  

So, ask away!  Yes, i do reserve the right to not answer, but I look forward to what you want to know about me.  It came be anything to my favorite color, TV show, day of the week, number, favorite movie, or something more deep.  Ask on twitter and I'll keep track of them.  When I get ready to do the blog, I'll even tag you so that you will know that you are mentioned in the post.  

Can't wait to see what 2015 is going to do in our lives!!!

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…
