Diva Dezynes!

I know I don't act like it, but I actually love going to visit my parentals.  The only thing I really don't enjoy is the traffic I sometimes run into during my two hour drive.  Even though I try to hang out with friends and family while there, I love just hanging out with the parentals.  When it comes to my dad, we bond around sports and movies.  When it comes to my mom, we bond around cooking, cooking shows, and doing crafts.  

My mom is a pretty awesome jewelry maker and she's trying to turn me into one.  I really don't like the whole jewelry making thing, but when I visit, I will make a few pieces with her. This brings me to Diva Dezynes.  

Now, she tells me I'm the reason she spells her company name like that.  I really don't remember me telling her how to spell it, but since she's mom, we'll just go with it.  

Throughout this entire post, you are going to see some of her various creations.  For instance, to the right, you see a beautiful blue earring set she made just for me!  I have so many items that she has made for me, whether it be something she was just working on or something I asked her to make for me.  Basically, she can create something from her own mind or she can make a custom order.  

If you have been following me on Twitter, you know my absolute favorite color is red.  In fact, while I was visiting the parentals over the weekend, my uncle and aunt dropped by and he had on an absolutely beautiful red tie.  Ok, let me get back to the reason behind this post.  

My mom also loves to make bracelets too.  Like everything in life, it took some practice and me telling her what I thought, but pretty soon, she starting making these really amazing bracelets.  These bracelets are not tight and they look absolutely beautiful.  Just let us know what color you want and she can do it for you!  

Ok, you are probably thinking I'm just boasting because she is my mom.  I'm not!  She's really good at what she does and I am basically a walking advertisement for her!  However, since I love this blog and I love sharing thing that I love in this blog, it's time you met the lady that makes my jewelry.  

She's not going to let me post a photo of her (yet).  She truly is not a fan of social media, but she's learning social media is the way to go!  

Until we can get her a page set up, I'll just keep letting you know about all the amazing things she can do.  

If you are wondering how to get you a custom piece, the answer is so simple.  All you have to do is get in contact with me on social media and you know I will get in contact with her! 

She's excited to be doing this and I am excited to be able to help her.  Don't worry, as I get more photos, I will add them to my Instagram and maybe (just maybe), she will let me start a page for her.  Be on the lookout for #DivaDezynes! 

Update: She finally has an Instagram page!  Check it out here!

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…
