YOU ARE A GODDESS

It saddens me when I see or read a Facebook post from a girl who sees herself as worthless. Always asking when she can find someone who will tell her what she wants  to hear, take her to places, or just call her at night. Simple things. So she ends up settling for someone who binds pretty little words for her to make her smile but then completely rip her heart apart when he decides he’s bored and done, only because he really did not know her worth. It saddens me to even know that there’s a girl out there who depends on a boy’s compliments or how there is a girl out there who believes that she always has to put a front, never going out without make up on. That’s not how it’s supposed to be. You’re supposed to embrace yourself as well as your own flaws. 

To the girl who doesn’t know her worth, this one is for you; you are a goddess.  And once you know what that truly means, I pray for anyone who tries to hurt you. 

A GOOD FRIEND

How do you know if you have a good friend on your side? Growing up I have learned that just because a person hangs around you all the time, doesn’t make them your bestfriend or a good friend. Some people just choose to hang around because they either don’t have better things to do, or they want to benefit from you. In the other words, kind of like hitch hiking. Free ride. Key word is free. Because it means they don’t give back. I learnt all of this throughout my late teens to last year. So now I can tell you what a good friend is. A good friend doesn’t have to be with you all the time. As an adult, you have bigger responsibilities and priorities other than hanging out. A good friend will check on you from time to time. A good true friend will be there when life gets a little hard. They give you advices. A good friend will not agree with you all the time. A good friend will say mean things in front of you, but never behind your back. 

A PHOTO DIARY: MY HUSBAND AND OUR LAB

Hi everyone! I would like to dedicate this post to my husband who has been amazing ever since I met him. Yesterday was his birthday and even though I couldn’t stay on my feet for long we managed to enjoy our time with family. 



These pictures were taken yesterday when our dog tried to run away just so my husband could tackle him and then demanded a good 20 minute petting. We love him!


My husband has been so crazy about researching and reading books on top of books on what he can do to become a better father to our baby boy. He’s paranoid and worried that he might miss something. And yes, I tell him all the time that he is already a great dad for doing what he is doing. He’s been great at keeping me stress free even though I sometimes cannot help it. It’s normal. 

I see it in his eyes and actions that he cannot wait to meet Kostandin which is amazing. 


My husband and I, including our baby Labrador retriever are looking forward to the big day! 

IT’S OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY ALL THE TIME

I would like to dedicate this post to the ones who are feeling a little not okay. Whether you are going through something or just plain not feeling right at the moment. This one is for you. 

Hey well all have those moments. And it is good to remember that it is normal and you are not alone. It is these feelings that makes us appreciate the good times more. Think about it. So, take time to breathe. Inhale deeply and exhale everything. That’s what unusually helps me when I feel a little off or when I wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Talk to someone or try to divert your attention if you must. Or, sit and appreciate the feeling. There is nothing wrong with that. 

 I often get asked why I choose to post uplifting things. Is it because I want a lot of readers? I am going to be honest. Knowing I have readers is flattering but that is not the sole purpose of why I post encouraging posts. I  simply believe that we have enough negativity in the air that we need to encourage others to look at the good instead of the bad in each situation. And I know I have said that a lot on here and I will never get tired of saying it. 

Trust me. You will read some rants here too. This blog is my online journal of whatever is running through my mind. 

I ACCIDENTALLY DYED MY HAIR

Hi eveyone! Before I start, I just want to clarify something, and that is that before I decided to do this, I made sure to ask my doctor if it was okay. She gave me the go. 


So yes as you read above, I accidentally dyed my hair. Not necessarily but close. Originally, I planned to do a light brown ombre, but then for some reason my hair either skipped the brown and red part, or just lightened so fast that by the time I finished my whole head everything literally looked pale yellow. 

Well the ends anyway. The rest of my hair looks yellow and some orange to brown. I have dyed my hair from black to blonde before too many times and this is a very familiar stage, so I’m not really intimidated like I was before. When I was in high school, I remember panicking and immediately dyed my hair back to black, which was very depressing. 

Granted, light hair will look different in different lighting, but here are some pictures to give you an idea. 


Pretty damn bright. I did this last night and I decided to give a break and let it breathe. I don’t hate it, but I am not completely loving it. I did purchase Wella toners incase and thank God I did. I have the T18 and T14 at home that I will use tonight to tone down the yellows and oranges.

I have used T18 before but not the T14. If you have any experiences worth mentioning, please share it with me, I would love to hear them. Wish me luck!
