Picture this!

I had been hinting on my Twitter feed about some big things happening in this blog over the summer.  Ok, so the official start to summer isn't until sometime next week, but the first thing happened last night.  

Yesterday afternoon, after the fierce thunderstorm passed through, my amazing friend hopped in the car with me and we headed to the South Carolina Coast!  We could see the storm in the distance and we ended up staying behind it the entire time.  However, my photographer was a bit worried, but I was hoping for the best...and the best is exactly what I got! 

We arrived at my photographer's house and to our surprise, the storm totally missed them.  It was so dark, but the storm itself was south of us.  Not knowing if the storm was going to change directions, we decided to head to the water to take some shots.  She let me see a few of them while I was there (without editing) and I was already floored because I just could not believe that was me.  But back to the beach part of the photo shoot...

I wanted to have a little fun and share my time with you.  That's when I went to my Periscope.  My wonderful friend had my phone and she was such a wonderful commentator and answered so many questions.  So, if you want to get an inside look at my shoot, you can check it out right here.  

Now, just because I like yall (yes, it's the southern girl in me) so much, you get an extra perk by seeing a photo with my amazing photographer Casey from Casey Brannon Photography.  By the way, she's a beast with the makeup too! 

So, if you are ever in Myrtle Beach, SC and looking for a photographer and/or makeup artist, Casey is the person for you!  

Can't wait to share the photos with you!!!

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…
