Mom and Dad

Mom, Dad, Sister, and ME

I got this dress to wear to my 40th Birthday party, last year!  I had it altered, it was really loose on me.  Oh, but now!  I'd dare say I am one cupcake away from not being able to fit it!  I hope you can't tell from the pictures. 

Me and my Dad.  He looked very stylish, don't you think so?  We attended a Father's Day Event honoring local men doing extraordinary things in the local community.  A very good friend of our family was being honored.  Anywho, this is what we ALL wore.  Sorry, I didn't take more pictures.  As my bad luck would have it, my camera died...

I have to apologize in advance for the pale feet and dirty carpet, My Apologies!  Now, about the shoes, you like?  They are way more comfortable than my usual footwear.  I love Michael Kors' shoes.  Let me correct that statement, I LOVE, LOVE MK SHOES!!!!

Hey Ladies!

Dawn-Marie (my sister), Khalilah, and Taryn

What a stylish group of ladies!  Sorry I didn't get any close ups on the shoes, my bad.  These ladies had Mad Shoe Game that night!  These are a few pictures from an event that I attended last Friday.

I have been gone for way too long ladies!  I am deep into summer mode, reading lots of blogs, magazines, and great books.  I have also discovered a NEW hobby.  This new hobby has been keeping me busy for the last few weeks. I have been cooking up all natural hair and body creams.  Oh, and I even made mouthwash for my son.  Let me back up and give you the story from the top.  I discovered or rediscovered YouTube.  I am now, completely addicted to watching YouTube videos.  I am trying to remember which blogger(s) had a link to YouTube that started this obsession?  I need to place the blame for this addiction on someone, right?  Anywho, I have made so many wonderful smelling products in my kitchen over the last few weeks. 

Here is my first attempt at a Shea butter based hair, skin, and body whip.  It can be used to moisturize dry hair or as a deep conditioner.  My father uses it on his feet and elbows (he has NO hair to use it on).  I have received positive feedback and lots of great reviews. 
Before I forget, recently I was informed that my Shea butter is really, African butter not Shea.  Long story, so I will save you the details.  Just know ladies, that whatever that yellow stuff is, it works!  But, I did  order the authentic unrefined Shea butter from Coastal Scents.  It is even more fabulous and it smells much better.  So, ladies please stay tuned for a DIY real soon.  Well, as soon as I perfect my Besos Shea Butter Souffle!!!!!!

My apologies, I have not posted in a little while.  Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn't???  OK, so I have been a very bad blogger of late.  So, here are my excuses, ready?  It's the end of the school year for my son, it's way hot outside for picture taking, I'm being lazy, and oh yeah the number one reason I have not posted in a week plus (drum roll) I have looked a HOT MESS!!!!!  I promise, I will have an updated post this week, no worries!
