Lady in red

Ok, I've been working on a draft all week!  Seriously, all week!  And yes, I'm still working on it, but I'm enjoying the process and taking a trip.  However, you will see the post soon enough.  

Tonight is brought to you by the color red.  Well, Saturday night (last weekend), was brought to you by the color red.  About a month ago, I attended a My Favorite Things party.  I had never been to one before and wasn't sure what to expect.  However, I ended up having a great time and getting some wonderful gifts.  If I remember correctly, I got a wine glass, candles, lip gloss, and a few other things.  But let's talk about this red stuff on my lips.

Apparently, Revlon makes this really awesome Ultra Matte HD Lipcolor.  The thing is, when you get your gifts at the party, you have no clue what you are getting.  So, when I opened this gift, I didn't know what to think.  Don't get me wrong, I love lip color, I just always thought I did not look good in red.  Well, this is what I learned - I was just wearing the wrong red.  

I took a risk and tested this lip color while going out over the weekend.  I was really pleased with the look and I think I wore it well...at least that is what people were telling me.  To top it off, I had on some beautiful red pants from Old Navy.  Basically, I was all the way matching!  

Check out those lips!  Ok, that was a little weird saying that about myself, but for real though, I think this looks amazing on my lips!  It has taken me so many years to try red on my lips again, but I am so happy to have received this gift at the party.  

Honestly, other than my eye shadow (which you obviously cannot see), lip color was the only thing I wore for make-up.  It was just too hot to do a full face and walk around The Vista for a few hours.  But let me tell you, it was so much fun!  

Here is what I want you to do - take a chance with some different looks!  I tell people the same thing all the time, but yet was too afraid to try a color.  I can honestly tell you this will not be the last time red will be on my lips.  Now, I just need another excuse to wear it.

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…
