Sooooo….I cut my hair. I cut it all off. Some days I can’t believe it, most days I’m too busy doing mom stuff to even notice :).
Why did I cut my hair? I was stressed, honestly. Needed something completely different and new. I didn’t know what other change I could make to myself to be even more honest. I always planned to cut my hair short when I was around 25 anyways and here I am…25 and it’s cut! I couldn’t deal with it anymore and my baby was tugging at it ALL of the time anyways and when she wasn’t, I was. Tragic!
I’m glad I did it. It was the dead weight that I needed lifted since having my daughter. I do have days where I miss my hair but oh well change is inevitable and at the time I needed this BAD.
P.s. This was a short post, huh? Lol. Good evening good people.
Hi everyone!!!! This year has been crazy hectic and exciting already! So far….I have…
- Started grad school back up and I’m working towards my MBA in project management
- Joined a book club ( an actual real book club that reads a book on a monthly basis and gets together to discuss it!!) I’m so excited about that!
- Got my ticket to see Beyonce in May!!! Yay yay yay!!!
- Whacked all of my hair off!!!! (Post coming soon with all of the details)
- Embraced some things about myself…the fact that I’m a mother now, I’m kind of an introvert and that I just like what I like dammit & people can hate it or love it who cares!
- I LOVE Shonda Rhimes and I LOVE Grey’s Anatomy! I love everything dealing with Shondaland, period.
I took a vow to start doing more of what I wanted to do and make decsisons for myself and no one else in regards to my life. And I absolutely love it. If we all just embrace who we really are, where we really are in life and stick to being true to ourselves, I promise you’ll be so much happier. So much happier.
Happy Monday everyone 🙂
Why in 2015 am I just finding out about instant coffee????! I LOVE coffee and I’m just finding out about it. I love coffee so much I had even asked for a coffee maker for Christmas 😳. I honestly always thought you needed a coffee maker to make coffee. That goes to show how much I know about it, LOL. Does that make me a real coffee fan or no?? Anyways, I discovered it at my granny’s house this past Sunday in the cabinet and as much as they drink coffee over there I don’t know how I missed the fact that they always drink it but never used a coffee maker. Then, I read on the coffee label that it was instant. I was sold and knew I wanted to try some ASAP.
This evening, my boyfriend stopped by the store to pick up a few things and I always text him the things I need if I need something and if it’s something he hasn’t gotten before I always send a picture so he can get it right because otherwise it’s no telling what I will end up with. I was curious to try this “instant coffee” so I sent him pictures of it and some creamer to go along with it. He gets it right! I was elated from that alone and I had been craving coffee today so bad that I Instanteously made a cup for myself. It was nothing short of amazing. It was the real thing. My night had been made and it only took about a minute and thirty seconds to do so along with my boyfriend getting the things I asked him to get right from the store.
This instant coffee for sure brought an instant smile to my face…:-)
Hello and happy Monday!!!!!
My 25th birthday is vastly approaching and for the most part, honestly, I haven’t been all that excited about it. For the past few months I had kind of been in a slump…being a new mom and all has its up & down days for sure but it’s still the greatest thing in life. EVER. Anyways, I was feeling not so good about my birthday because for one, I didn’t have a job. Two, being in the house 90% of the time with a newborn can become a lot..especially with a hard working boyfriend who spends most of his days working to provide for the baby & I. Nevertheless, I’m so grateful and thankful that I’m able to stay at home with my baby girl. Within the past couple of months I began to look deep within and do a little soul searching and boooooooyyyyyy did it bring about a change in my life in every way. I began reading a couple of self help books, lots of quiet time with God, and finding positive, inspiring people on social media (Twitter, periscope, etc.) that are life coaches and in ministry. Sometimes you just have to help yourself, and encourage yourself. I saw a blatant change in my attitude towards everything and my slump/depression began to pass. Long story short, I got a new job in the last couple of weeks and I will start in the next week or so and I needed something to spice things up a little bit at home and for my new job :-). I said all of that to say patience is a virtue and learning to trust your journey and God is too. I digress. Here’s a picture of my hair before…
Now here’s my hair today….
Hiiiiiiiiiii! This is my first official post. I’m excited, I’ve been wanting to start a blog for the longest. Not just for people to read but because writing is one of my favorite ways to self express. It’s easy (in a sense), free, and helps you get all of the thoughts you want to get out, out.
So..a little background on me. My name is Ambernique. I’m a mother of one beaitiful baby girl (Brooklyn Elise), a graduate of The University of Memphis and current grad student at Strayer University. I love my parents and my boyfriend and close friends. I love taking care of my daughter, she’s the absolute best thing that happened to me. I’m very family oriented and I have lots of things to talk about :-). Here I will post about first time mommy experiences, shopping, books I am reading or want to read, life experiences, and everything else in between. I hope whoever reads my posts enjoys them!
Here’s a picture of my family. I love us.
