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!

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.…

The Outsiders

It has been too much going on in the blogging world recently.  I mean, I know that any press is good press, but this might have been too much.  Then add it on top of that, you get people who don't blog chiming in talking about you're just doing it to get free stuff or get a real job or find something to do with your spare time.  Let me answer all three of those - I've been writing in The Plus Diaries for almost five years and have proudly made 25 dollars (by accident), I do work a full-time job with great benefits, and writing is just one of the things I do in my spare time.  For you nosey people, I also do crafts, travel, and currently studying for a couple of tests in my free time.  

Blogging is supposed to be fun!  That's why I got into it in the first place.  But trust me, I salute all the wonderful bloggers out there making money off their blogs.  That's awesome to me!  You are doing what you love and making money off it?  If the quote is true and they really l…

The Big Bang

It's been a while.  It truly has been a while.  I am typically great about telling you when I am taking a blogging break, but sometimes, life just comes at your fast.  At the end of January, life came at me hella fast.  Had it not been for the one blog post I had already written and set up to post, you would not have heard from me when you did.  But, I'm getting back to my feet and feeling more and more like my normal self.  

I know what you are thinking - what happened?!  Well, that's for me to know and for you to never find out.  There are some things in my life that I would rather keep personal and this is one of those times.  I've told the people who need to know and it will go no further than that.  But, let's get one to some fun stuff.  

I still have been active on my Instagram and Twitter pages.  I promised to keep you all updated on my weight loss madness that is happening and I've been trying to do so.  I don't want to turn into one of those people w…
