According to WordPress over the last two days I have had the most “likes” and “views” for the blog.
A HUGE THANK YOU to those that took the time to hit the like button…it truly means a lot.
A HUGE THANK YOU to those who clicked and glanced at the site.
That makes me smile. Even though none of the post have anything to do with writing…Do you find that odd? That my said passion has nothing to do with my increase in views…I don’t.
Writing will always be my No. 1 passion but 2nd to that would be fashion…creating fashion. Before I had an interest in writing as a career I wanted to be a fashion designer.
The site Polyvore helps me play stylist more than fashion designer…but it’s still all good. Creating outfits is still creating.
If you don’t know what Polyvore is it is pretty much what I said above. It is a website where you can go and create outfits (complete with shoes, jewelry, and makeup), a collections of outfits, interior design a living space, or a collage of said items.
For me it is all about the outifits.
The site is headless paperdoll.
When I first started playing with the site I would name my outfits but after a while I ran out of ideas, lol. (doesn’t say much for my creative writing skills)
Still creating is creating whether it has a fancy name or not. And if people like how I put together pants, and jackets, with boots or shoes who am I to complain.
For those that aren’t loving the fashions fear not…I’ll get back to the writing…eventually…I always do.
Until next time,
I’m sitting at my desk. Work is kind of slow. I’m taking advantage of the downtime. I’m watching YouTube video, catching up on reading blogs, texting friends…As I’m reading this blog post on The Everything Girl, staring at the pretty pictures of Lauren’s apartment it hit me.
Maybe a twin.
Maybe I should get a twin…a twin bed that is.
I live in a tiny studio. I have no clue what the square footage is but I know it’s tiny. As much as I want to move it really isn’t feasible right now. But I am tired (so tired) of coming home to my bland apartment. I’ve lived there for 5 years refusing to decorate or add any type of personal touch because I told myself I wasn’t staying long.
I’ve been there long enough. I need to make an attempt.
Right now my apartment is a bed…and a Rubbermaid drawer, and some end tables…Not fancy, but functional. Being that the studio is small I always had the mindset of not wanting to stuff it with furniture. But if I get size appropriate furniture, I can make it cute…
This is where the twin bed comes in. I have a full size bed now. If I get a twin I’ll have room for a chair/loveseat. If someone came over the only place to sit is on my bed. Watching TV in bed is nice when I want to lay down. Who wants to lay down all the time?
At the moment I am single…I’m not dating. For however long I stay in my current apartment I may starting seeing someone.
Nights on a twin bed aren’t hot…or comfortable. And I don’t care, lol. I want a new bed. I want room for a chair.
I could get a daybed. Although in my opinion they aren’t that comfortable to sleep in.
The layout of my apartment is like this
In my mind if I put all that furniture in my place I would feel cramped. I hate feeling cramped.
A simple bed, chair, maybe a movable kitchen island and that’s it.
Because…I’m not going to be staying here for long 😉
Until next time
My side chick can be a bitch sometimes.
She can be unruly, tight, hard to work with…a hot mess if she isn’t given attention.
She can also be soft, playful, rewarding…a trooper…My side chick will have my back no matter what I put her through.
That surprises me. Especially since before the middle of 2013 we hadn’t been spending much time together…for a looooooog time.
The one day I woke up, looked at myself in the mirror and said…
I miss her
Technically I am premature in talking about this…it hasn’t been a full year yet…but it will be in June…
It has been a year that I have been with my side chick.
In May my side chick is going away for a bit. But she will still be around. She’s kinda going be replaced by my fling chick.
You know, the kind you see a few times a year. You got mad love for her…but by 1, 2, maybe 3 months you’re done and want something new.
You miss that side chick cause you know one day she will replace the former main chick.
You gonna wake up one day and BAM…she will literally be all over the place…taking up space in your bed, in your bathroom, demanding WAY more time than she did when she was a side chick.
For a hot minute you might even think about going back to NO chicks…It’s crossed my mind.
But I made a commitment to my side chick when I left my main chick.
I was going to do right by her, treat her right…and she was going to do me right.
She…MY HAIR…wasn’t going to allow me any regret on this hair growth journey that I am on.
We are on the slow and steady road with much progress.
*Below are pics of me with my
“main chick”- my shaved head. Been with her for 13 years. Saying goodbye wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.
“side chick”- my hair slowly growing out. I like this one…I better because I know she is going to be around for a long time (my goal is chin length)
“fling chick”- the braids (protective styles) that I had for a month or two. She holds my attention for a while but I always miss my side chick.
This last pic is from last week
This is how my hair will remain till I get my new fling chick.
In order to maintain healthy hair not just growing hair I think of the process as a relationship.
I have to give my hair attention and patience. Listen to its needs while being mindful of my own. Styling is time consuming and the results are worth it.
Think I’m crazy?
Embarking on your own hair care journey and let me know how you feel about “the other chick” spouting from your head.
~Until next time~
