"I WILL NOT GIVE UP ON MY HAIR"
Let me hear you in the comment below.
I know the past few days might have been challenging and a bit time consuming keeping your hair moisturized all the time, but I bet you can agree with me that the time spent paid off!
I’ve never really felt like I truly belonged anywhere or fit in. Growing up with no daddy in the picture and a mentally ill mama, I was bounced around a lot. I never had enough time in one place to really establish roots. After awhile I didn’t even care to. My bags were always packed. Nothing lasts. No one stays. At age 8, my uncle Jeff who had talked of adopting my sister and I, committed suicide in our basement. My mama was in and out of rehab so much we lived with her and then we didn’t. My father would say I’m comin to get y’all so my sister and I would wait on the porch all day. He never showed. Folks would take me in and then realize how much work it is to house a troubled girl (Which I understand now, I don’t blame them. I appreciate that they tried.) and then I had to go. Mama died when I was 20. Started my biz that many don’t understand and I lost even more people. Sometimes this breaks me down to my knees. But bitch I get the fuck back up!! Some of us were born to make a new way. If you don’t fit nowhere, baby that’s your clue that you are here on this earth to forge a new path! I’m realizing more and more that I’m one of those people. I’m not supposed to fit in. I’m supposed to CREATE. Dry your tears oddballs. Blow all that snot outcha nose. lol It’s gone be ok. 🌻
There will always be someone willing to hurt you, put you down, gossip about you, belittle your accomplishments and judge your soul. It is a fact that we all must face. However, if you realize that God is a best friend that stands beside you when others cast stones you will never be afraid, never feel worthless and never feel alone.

People always comment on how much I look like my sister. In this picture I really see it. I also see the saggy boobs I call cheeks. When I was younger, someone said to my sister that her cheeks looked like saggy boobs when she smiled (ouch, 🤣). Even though it wasn’t said to me, it cut me real deep. For as long as I can remember, it’s affected the way I smiled and also made me steer clear of wearing blush. This is me last week when I had my make-up done by an artist from @ctilburymakeup using some of their new products. It’s a little out of my comfort zone but I kind out like it. She used the Hollywood Flawless Filter,
Mini Miracle Eye Wand and Airbrush Flawless Finish. On my eyes, I have the colour Chameleon in Champagne Diamonds and on my cheeks, I believe it’s Cheek the Chic in the Climax and Beach Stick in Moon Beach.
I think that was all... might have missed some stuff though.
