Fresh & Fulfilled February

Happy 2nd day of February everyone! Can you believe that one month of 2017 has already gone by? It’s amazing!ff2

Are you all sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions so far or achieving all the goals you set for yourself? Hopefully you are and if you need a little push, I believe in you! 🙂

I came into 2017 focused on my future, planning, career, relationships, and of course my goals.

Recently, I decided to set small, progressive goals for every week in February and possibly even after this month. I am doing this because goal setting is important, keeps you balanced and on track, and it definitely feels great when you achieve them!
ff1This weeks goal was to focus on self-love and take extra care of my body. As you mightve seen in my previous blog post here, I made a smoothie which was delicious, healthy, and great for my body.

I also did a cleansing facial wash which was relaxing, refreshing, and left my skin feeling super soft and smooth. Sometimes you have to take time to focus on your body and just love yourself a little extra!

Would you be willing to give the weekly goal setting challenge a try? Leave a comment below and let me know!

Enjoy your weekend lovelies ❤

The Book of Me: Future Edition

This post is actually a story I wrote for my creative writing class. It is special to me because I wrote about how I envision myself in the future. I talk about my dreams and aspirations for the future and I think it turned out pretty cool ^-^ So without further ado, here is ~~

The Book of Me: Future Edition

Chapter 1: Talking with Tati

micShe is the host of a talk show called “Talking with Tati.” She is standing on stage wearing a strapless coral jumpsuit with a gold belt, gold statement necklace, and sparkly gold shoes. Elle Magazine voted her one of the best dressed hosts on television. One day she interviews musicians and actors and another day she interviews scientists and YouTube stars. She speaks exquisitely about current fashion trends, women’s health and beauty tips, natural hair, and current world events. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and share her point of view. On every episode she tries to encourage, educate, and inform her fans in some way. At the end of every episode she leaves her viewers with a motivational quote. “Always aspire for greatness. If you believe in it, you can achieve it,” she says as she flashes a big smile and waves goodbye to her audience.

Chapter 2: Glamour Shot

red carpetThanks to her successful hosting career, she now gets an opportunity of a lifetime. She is walking the red carpet. “So this is what it feels like to have dreams come true,” she says in her head as she steps her first silver heel onto the red carpet. She wowed in a teal Versace mermaid gown that she paired with silver chandelier earrings. Her pear shaped frame is perfectly accentuated in the gown. Her silver and gold tattoo jewelry glistens as the bright lights hit them. Her long, curly natural hair bounces as she struts down the red carpet. She looks gorgeous and feels like a movie star. She stops to strike poses as the cameras flash all around her. She occasionally blows kisses at the young girls cheering and waving to her. She’s happy to be a role model for so many girls. She waves like a princess to the cameramen and fans as she gracefully exits the red carpet.

Chapter 3: Her Start

Her red carpet moment gained her even more success. A host asks her onto his show and wants her to speak about how she got to where she is today. She talks of going to college and majoring in communications and finishing a semester early. She speaks non-stop startabout the people she met who helped her along the way. “Reaching out and asking for help is something I had a problem with, but I soon learned how to do it. I am so grateful for the people who helped me,” she says with tears in her eyes. She mentions how she moved from Baltimore to Los Angeles, after her college days and got her “big break” when she ran into a producer looking to create a new show. “I guess I was in the right place at the right time,” she says with a smile.”

Chapter 4: A Normal Life

Even with her luxurious lifestyle of hosting, talking to celebrities, and red carpet homeappearances, she still leads a normal life. She has a loving family that keeps her grounded throughout all of life’s chaos. She has a husband, a scientist by day and a game developer by night. She has one child for now, Caleb, who is three years old. She wants at least 5 more children and she definitely wants to adopt an Asian baby girl. Her family is what motivates her to stay strong and fulfill all of her dreams. She may not be the richest, but she feels the happiest she has ever felt in years. She has a career she loves, a husband who is super supportive, a wonderful son, and many more goals to achieve. She is truly blessed and happy, and that’s all she ever wanted to be.

…This is who I want to be, one day. This is who I will be, one day.

My Natural Hair Journey

It’s been a little over a year since I cut all of my hair off and went natural. I am excited about how far I have come and even more excited about the future of my hair. This will be a short post because all I wanted to share my progress with my lovely readers ❤

natural hair journeyBox 1: This a picture of me from the day of my Big Chop. My hair was supeerrrr short and I was a little worried about how I looked for a while. I eventually grew into it and fell in love with my short look. It was easy to manage and I knew that it would be growing shortly. This was taken in March of 2014.

Box 2: This picture is from my Bear with Honey post and features me sporting one of my favorite natural hairstyles, twist-outs! My hair has grown soooo much in just a year and I am really proud of my growth 🙂 Can’t wait for it to grow longer!

Box 3: This is a very recent picture and this is a picture of me with my hair straightened! I haven’t had my hair straight in over a year. I am happy to see how long it is because I am so use to seeing it up in the air rather than laid down (lol). I am enjoying my straight hair, but I am starting to miss my puffy and curly hair, so it will probably be back to my fro in a couple of days ^-^

Box 4: This is just a really cool picture and shows a character with gorgeous natural hair. I think that this photo inspires strength and confidence for all women in general and of course, women with natural hair.

I hope everyone enjoyed my hair update post and I hope you all have great Thursdays ❤ It’s almost Friday!!!
