Hey Traveler! I know I know I’ve been missed. A lot of you guys has been really keeping up with me through my other social medias. So you guy know that I always have a lot going on. And I could give you some lame excuses about why I’ve still been absent from the blogs. But I won’t.
As I’m writing this I am sitting in Starbucks (Not Sponsor) waiting on my venti Vanilla Chai Creme Frappuccino with coconut milk, no whip, and cinnamon powder. And then it hits me I’m not a plain coffee kinda girl. As a matter of fact I hardly ever drink coffee. No offense to all those people that drink plain coffee with no additional ingredients. I personally prefer the extra. Asks any member of the Starbucks I frequent and they will tell you I am so extra with my drink lol. In the past I remember if my drink was wrong I would go to a different location and order another one of the same drink. This was because I was more passive with the Starbucks always pleasant customer service.
I hope you guys realize those days are over, just like now being guilt is over. I will be apologetic because I do have responsibility to myself. I always want to come across as semi-professional. I feel that I owe you guys so explaining when it come to life. I started this blog to express myself in the only way I could with my poetry. At the begin of this I just wanted to please everyone else. Like a plain cup of coffee strong but without the extra..
My poetry was to help someone with out my emotions or entertain others with my emotions. I would rewrite until I get that perfect balance of fuff. We can not live in a world we can not be our true selves. I was suffocating with in my own skin. So now I know to be extra a hot pink in a black and white world. I realize that I can’t live my life just living to please others. Even starting this blog was like one big breather of fresh air. I say what I want, do as I please, and go where I need to be.
That’s why as of now I am on a travel mindset and will be traveling a whole lot. I refuse to accept life as a plain cup of coffee. I will be extra and live my life with all that entails. Let my husband tell it, the only time I’m not extra is in my sleep, so i repeat i am not a plain cup of coffee girl. So please enjoy the blog, because my best is yet to come. Catch you in the mall travelers.
It’s funny I never really understood how chaotic my life was until I became a writer. My writing style is all over the place like my life. In my life anything can happen with or without notice at the airport. I’m pretty sure there are a lot of people that can say the same thing. The only difference is their not me. If I was to describe the way my thought process goes many of you would think I needed to be admitted in a psychiatric ward. Thankfully you don’t know. Lol!
The only person that truly knows airport living is my husband. Which means he is the only other person with me at the airport. The only other person who is also African at the airport. I didn’t know how crazy my life was to other people until they started talking to my husband. Wanting to know how he handle all the crazy stuff I do. My husband is very democratic in his answers to many of the questions that comes his way. That’s when I realized my husband really did accept everything in my life. It really doesn’t matter if I drive him crazy with my countless shopping trips. Which by the way I am getting better at controlling I might add. Except this week because Aeropostale had a sale this weekend and I lost it. (Still not sponsored) Enough about shopping back to the blog.
Most people (when I say most people I really mean family and friends) think I’m crazy. I’m sure there are strangers that’s thinking along those lines also lol but they keep it to themselves. Or I don’t reply to them on any of my social media.
My husband is the only one that knows I’m sane. He’s gotten to know me so well that even I’m amazed at times. I look at it this way nothing I do ever surprises him. That’s why I’m at the computer shopping even now while I’m working. So he never asks what I’m doing because he knows I’m shopping. One time he surprised me with something on my wishlist. He told me he just checked my history to figure out what I wanted. My husband is so smart.
So travelers as you can see my husband knows me better than anyone. So you guys know I can’t pull one over on him. Although I do keep trying hoping to get lucky one day. And you guys know you’ll be the first to know when that happens. Catch you at the mall, later travelers.
Hey travelers this week I’ve had to face facts. And the truth of the matter is I’m spoil. I was just sitting here eating lunch when I realized my husband ordered wrong. Okay sure I really didn’t know what I wanted. And sure he did try and call me so I can get what I wanted. And sure I always ordered the things he ordered for me. But this time I wanted to try something else on the menu or maybe not. I was sitting with friends and working at the same time when I asked my husband to please get me something to eat. And yes I knew he had errands to do. My friends was all surprised my husband would take time out from his business to get me food. Even more surprise when he knew what I would have ordered.
I wasn’t surprised at all my husband try’s to accommodate all me eccentricities. Yes sometimes like a crazy person I wake up in the middle of the night. And ask him to go downstairs and get me some cereal or fruit or ice cream. (And no I’m not pregnant. I’m just fat lol.) I just know I’m up and I will not be sleeping again for the night. My husband has to wake up and go get me all the things I asked him to bring. I don’t always act like this but when I do he treats me with love.
So back to my lunch, seeing how the other women reacted to my husband bringing me lunch is what showed me. I was spoiled.
My husband is always surprising me with gifts and the things he knows I love like makeup, clothes, and just recently two pairs of shoes. And I look at everything as if he’s suppose to go above and beyond.
In reality my husband loves me and I have to respect that he try’s his best to please me. So I ate my lunch and I texted him thank you. He even asked if he got it right. And I replied yes.
I’m realizing that it didn’t matter and I need to stop arguing with my husband over every little thing. Except perhaps makeup I did after all missed the second launch of DesixKaty which I’ll probably explain in a different blog. Or probably not maybe I was still in spoiled mold. Seeing as if I didn’t get anything from DesixKaty dose of color collection my husband promised anything I wanted from the Fenty holiday collection.
So I’m looking forward to shopping this holiday season. Maybe I’ll get lucky he did say we were going to do a lot of traveling in the coming months. Catch you in the malls travelers.
All this time I thought my mouth was the same as everyone else. Now I realize my mouth is big. No not big…. huge. Not huge…. humongous. I could go on but I’m pretty sure by now you got the picture travelers. Okay so I have a big mouth. At least this is what my husband thinks. Although now that I think about it he maybe right.
I am one of those people that can have a conversation with anyone. Animals include on occasions. I’m just a people person lol. I can open anyone up with these three ways to start a conversation. With greetings, laughter, or knowledge. If they are receptive I can start a conversation that can last for short periods or hours at a time. And in some cases days.
That unfortunately is not why I have a big mouth. The reason why I have a big mouth is because I give people to much information. Don’t get me wrong some of the things people say to me is team too much. Although that’s all right for some I’ve learned that my husband is a very private man. Even though I don’t give out the family secret recipes. My husband doesn’t want me discussing nothing about him to anyone. And yes I know I blog and I tell you guy a lot about us. If you go back in the blogs you can see I give a general description on what happened instead of a detailed outline. So now I’ll explain why my husband thinks I have a big mouth.
My husband and I are thinking about moving in the near future. So I in my happy state started telling some people that we were moving soon. Mind you we hadn’t even looked at places. Much less started saving for the move. Okay travelers I know what you’re thinking but in all honesty I didn’t think it would matter either way.
This to my husband is having a big mouth. No one should know that we’re moving until it’s time to move. He tells me over and over again that my mouth will get me in trouble. I really didn’t understand what could happen until it did.
My mouth got me into trouble to make along story short. I was talking to someone about someone else I should not have been talking about. Although it was not anything but the truth I end up hurting the person who I was talking about.
I’m not prefect in any ways and I was very sorry I opened my mouth. So I’m learning to always pull myself back before I talk in any conversation. Even my husband notice and he say that he appreciates the attempt to try to keep my mouth close. But he learned from the beginning to not tell me anything of major important. So how you like those apples. It’s funny travelers because I can keep secrets like if I was to spend over $300 on makeup for Christmas. I could definitely keep that a secret. Or buying Christmas decorations for over $100. If those things were to happen I could definitely keep it a secret but since those things didn’t happen there is nothing to tell.
Now travelers I have to go I’m plotting my next shopping trip. Depending on how much I spend you may or may not hear about it. Catch you in the malls.
Well, well, well. If you didn’t understand the meaning of the title this is a Public Service Announcement: I’m Fake. I was sitting in my chair sipping my tea. When the tea spilled on top of me. Yes me, okay picture this I’m on the bed thinking about the New Year coming. Planning my goals, and entertaining myself with the Sephora website. (Not Sponsored) When I received an email.
The email was pretty long almost too long to be from a random person. So even though it was stated quote on quote that “they didn’t know me” end quote. I think the person knows me personally. Don’t get me wrong I’ve received long email from random strangers all the time. But this email although pretty much stated things I’ve said or shown on social media. The email still pointed out other things with accuracy that only family or friend would know. (Those things I will not be stating for personal reasons.)
So yeah then he or she ended the email with that I’m fake. Although I won’t tell you word for word of the email or the personal stuff. I will tell you the main problem the person had with my website. How am I able to support myself, travel, and shop like I do without a job? It seem that a lot people think I don’t work. I sit home all day and write and live off others. “So I’m lying to my little bit of followers that reads this blog.” The person words directly from the email.
Look I don’t have to give an account for the things I have or the money I earn. If I want to take my last and go shopping at stores that you said I can not afford then that’s me. But what you not going to do is call me a liar. I’m not going to show every time I go out or everything I buy on social media just to prove myself right. Who does that? And I don’t have to show anyone my paycheck or bank balance. At the end of each day I’m happy with myself.
Another thing that was stated was my husband does not treat me like that and how I chose to describing all the things that goes on in my marriage. I gloss over a lot emotions that is negative when it comes to my marriage. Like for example when we when though our loss. This blog wasn’t meant to be dark. I wanted people to enjoy the little window I let open in my marriage. I don’t have to tell you guy every time we have a fight. Or that our misunderstandings drive us crazy. This is to entertain and rant a little. I keep everything lite because I was in a dark place for a very long time. Hence my second book Damnation to Destruction The dark place of the Airport. It give you all the dark moment at the time of my mother passing. Some moments were too dark that I cut them out all together because I now want to be just happy.
I learn from my husband that happiness is a choice. And that if you want to make the best out of life you have to work hard not to let anyone steal your joy. So I replied to the email but saying. And I quote “Thank you for reading my blog, and yes I am fake. Have a bless day.” end quote. I am not feeding into negativity. I chose to be happy. So let’s start this year off right Macy’s, Victoria Secret, Sephora, Mac Cosmetic all are having sales right now. (Still not Sponsored) I will catch you guys in the shopping mall travelers. Until next time.
Hello Travelers, I would like to apologize for no blog post for the last two weeks. My assistance and I had a 21 day cleansing at the beginning of this year. The blogs was set up to be schedule but this is the Airport it was not program correctly. And you guys know I am not tech-savvy. I have gotten better but as of now I’m still learning. Even though I’m apologizing I’m really not sorry. Unlike the other times with no blog this time was more spiritual. I needed to concentrate on lingering doubt and negativity that I have been carrying around. I was able to close doors in a lot of the unresolved areas of my life. This time for me was special.
So what happen on my 21 day cleansing I realize that I want to do a 10 day blog-a-tong. Starting sometime this week a blog will be post every day. I just want all the old un-publish blogs out until I’m caught up to today blogs. In my time away I was also able to clear stuffs out of my closet, and all around the house. This made my husband very happy. I took time out, and we talk a lot about our marriage. We did a lot of planning just focusing on our relationship. Although I didn’t plan to I loss 5 plus pound and counting.
This year I plan to travel. So I have already been to North Carolina for a vision broad party. This was for The A.W.A.K.E.N Movement and hosted by my best friend and founder Jante G. Bryant. Where I met a lot of strong women and was a great event.
This cleansing help me to focus more on the building blocks and making sure to a line everything I want to do this year. So thank you travelers for being patience with me and my Airport life. As of always catch me in the mall I’ll talk to you guys later.
