Music + friends + fashion = awesome night!


Last night was one of the best nights of my life, even though it also ended up with me being super tired today! However, it was totally worth it - from the music to the fashion.  I could not have imagined a better night and I'm thankful for the wonderful peeps I was with to make it so great.  

I attended a concert last night where the main event was Maroon5, with their opening acts being R City and ToveLo. The funny part is that the person I was with wasn't really familiar with the opening acts, so she thought.  However, we rocked out all night long and the people we were sitting around made it even better.  

Although the music was absolutely awesome and Maroon5 performed all of my favorites, I had the most fun looking at the fashion and enjoying the fact a lot of people love to take fashion risks at concerts.  

As we were walking out, we saw an older woman wearing a sheer dress and basically only had on underwear.  I know as I described it, you are probably thinking ew, and I am sure a few people looking at her were thinking the same thing.  Personally, I found her outfit intriguing and I wish I had taken the time to ask her for a photo.  I told my friend that I liked the outfit the lady had one.  I was expecting her to look at me and just laugh, but she actually agreed with me.  She said she enjoyed seeing people who are willing to step out of the fashion box because she knows that she would not do it herself.  

Of course we saw plenty of dresses and tops that were absolutely fabulous.  Basically, I feel like I had a window shopping adventure while enjoying some great music.  Nothing wrong with that, right?


I have learned this is what life is all about!  Go have a good time.  Take some risks.  Enjoy the life you have been given and make the best out of every single situation that is thrown your way!

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…
