Happy New Year 2016

Hi My Beauties

Happy Happy New Year.

2015 didn’t start of very good. I was still mourning my mom’s death and still am. It’s something that you never get over but with the help of my daughter my outlook has change a little.

By the fourth quarter of this year, I was in a better mind space. I attended a women’s conference for empowerment and it changed my life and mindset. I’ve started a new business venture, which I’m looking forward to introducing to all of you. I’m excited about 2016 and all its possibilities.

Please keep a look out for my Romance corner, which is a new segment to my blog and will feature my new business venture. I hope to have it up and running by the end of January.

I want to say thanks for all your comments and likes. I look forward to our journey in 2016.

See you soon,

My Beauties 🙂

Blogmas Day 5

Hi, My Beauties

I hope all is well on this journey called life. I would like to talk about what Christmas means to me.

Christmas means a number of things to me. When I was little it was all about Santa, snow, presents and no school. Now that I’m older it’s more about the time I spend with the special people in my life.

This will be my second Christmas without my mom and it’s not the easiest thing to deal with. It just reminds me to cherish what I have and spend my time wisely on things I love.

What I love most about Christmas is all the wonderful Hallmark movies about Hope, Love and Miracles. I can spend a whole day curled up with my favorite throw and a mug of hot chocolate.

What does Christmas means to you, My Beauties?

Please leave a comment below and let me know.

See you soon, my Beauties 🙂

  4. Home Alone 1 & 2 with Macaulay Culkin.
  5. Elf with Will Ferrell
  6. The Last Holiday with Queen Latifah & LL Cool J

  11. This Christmas with Idris Elba & Chris Brown. My mom’s favorite movie that she would watch all the time. Maybe because of all the yummy men.
