When you find yourself so comfortable, you tend to let go and relax. That is exactly what happened in my past relationship. I got so comfortable that I had put on some weight and stopped taking care of myself. If there is anything good that came out of my break up, it is that I am finding myself again. I got so lost in the relationship wanting to please my partner that I forgot about myself. Relationships are time consuming, but if there is one thing that I have learned from my past, don't ever forget about yourself & always make time for YOU!
I am eating healthier, working out everyday and on my way to getting my sexy back!
Stay tuned for my progress, nutrition, & fitness tips!
As I sit here listening to some music, I realize that this is the longest break I have taken from the blog yet. Why might you curiously ask? Well life is exactly why! It has a way of creeping up on you when you least expect it. You tend to naturally plan your life out when 9 out of 10 times, it doesn't happen the way you plan. Life is much bigger than both you and I. It has a plan for us, and no matter what we try to do, it's sticking to it's plan...and we are just a long for the ride.
2010 thus far has been far more of an emotional roller-coaster then 2009. I thought 2009 was bad. Ha! Jokes on me I guess. So much has happened that I don't even know where to begin. I guess to make a long story short...my better half and I decided to part ways after 7 years, I went to school to become a nurse just to find out that I love fashion too much to just give up, and last but not least I am on a personal journey trying to find myself from the inside out.
No matter how many tears I've cried in these past few months, I can't be sad for what has happened or where I am at in my life. I am here for a reason, as this is the path that will take me to where I truly belong. It has been hard and emotional to say the very least, but gives me hope for a better future. The crazy thing about life is, you never see it coming. I mean you honestly are blindsided by the events that creep up on you, and we manage to push through it. It's truly amazing to think of what is still to come. I'm sure there's going to bad and good events, but I'm mainly hoping for the good ;)

So as I'm sure you're aware Drake's highly anticipated freshman album, Thank Me Later, which leaked weeks before his official release date of June 15th has arrived. There has been a lot of skepticism on whether he will in fact be able to top his phenomenal mixtape, So Far Gone, which could very much be mistaken has as his freshman album. It was by far one of the best mixtape & albums I've heard in a long time.
Thank Me Later features some hard hitters in the music industry like Jay Z, T.I., Swiss Beatz, & The Dream, which is bound to produce some great collabs...
As I am listening to the album as I type this, I find myself unsure whether it's a banger or not. Both of Drake's singles, Over & Find Your Love grew on me the more I heard it. I did not fall in love with it instantly, but now find myself hitting replay more than not. I have a strong feeling that I will feel the same exact way about this album the more I dissect the lyrics, beats, and bars. He did however get bonus points for using Aaliyah's - Let Me Know song remastered for his track Unforgettable ft. Young Jeezy. That beat goes hardddd!
The one thing I can say for sure is that his sound is unique and innovating, which takes an eccentric ear to truly appreciate. Each song takes you down a new pathway. This is not your typical Soldier Boy shit, it's a progression of music not of its typical kind.
P.S. After hearing it a couple times, I LOVVVVE IT! LOL Click the link above to download now & cop the album June 15th. It's worth having it in the archives, at least to me it is ;)

I started the online store garmentvault.com, as an experiment and also to house my own personal designs when they were ready. Since that venture started some new opportunities came a knocken and designing took far more of my time then anything else. In result, I've had to put the online store and it's growth on hold until I have some more time. Some major things are in the works so be on the look out!
I need to make room and get rid of all my stock! The thing about buying wholesale is you have to buy a lot of a style to purchase it wholesale... so fortunately for you, I have some cute spring/summer dresses in stock that I am letting go for almost the cost of goods....Plus, I need the dinero! Fabric, patterns, notions, etc are NOT cheap. Designing a collection is quite expensive...
