Hi everyone!

Recently life hasn’t been catching me a break to blog lately. I’ve had lots going on with my travel plans and work has had me booked for about two weeks straight. Can’t say I’m complaining about the extra income, but hot damn I’m tired! :lol: Anyway, it’s been a while since I posted a work out challenge so here we go! These Hindu Push-Ups are awesome and are harder than they look. They are a great way to work on your core strength and flexibility. Try it! Give your self a couple minutes and take your time. ;)

Hi everyone!

I’m posting another Family Interactions post today!

Do you want to know what transpired between my mom and I in the last Family Interactions post? (<—-follow that link)

This is a conversation I had with my nephew yesterday evening when I came home from work. Just precious, I had to share with you all! I have to say, I taught him very well. Good luck to my sister, he’s going to be trouble… who am I kidding? He already is! :lol:

Nephew: “Mama Misha?”

Me: “Yes Luka?”

Nephew: “You no love me?”

Me: “What? Of course I love you. Why would you think that?”

Nephew: “You go bye bye.”

Me: *Kneels down to his eye level* “Luka, I love you more than anything in this world. Even when I’m gone I’m still going to love you. I will always love you.”

Nephew: *gives me a hug* “love you mama Misha.”

Me: *fighting back tears* “Oh Luka, I’m going to miss you so so much. I going to think about you all the…”

Nephew: *Puts his hand on my mouth* “Shhhh. Cookie now?”

Me:  “Way to kill the mood little man. Way to kill the mood.”

Typical male, always out for your cookies! And yes, I did give him a cookie.

Jadie’s Questions!

1. If you had to live with ONLY 1 make-up product what would it be and why?

Hmmm, well I think I’m settling with black eye shadow. You can do a lot with black. You can go as light or heavy as you want and get a different look out of it. So for variance that can last, I think I’ll go with that. :)

2. Name the beauty brand you’d most love to be a spokesperson for?

Recently it’s been Windex. I’ve been taking on a lot of cleaning project around the house, :lol:

4. What’s your best beauty tip?

Running late? No time to style your hair, ponytail up! Ok for real, I actually have something I’m going to steal from my sister to answer this question with. Our dad is a heavy smoker and he knows better than to smoke in front of his two daughters. We are like the smoke police and there are heavy fines if you break the law. I saw my sister filing her nails with a pack of matches. I was taken aback by that and inquired what she was doing. Apparently you can use the match strip like an emery board. Who knew?! Now you know too, lol.

5. Are you a heels or flats girl?

I love heels, but the amount of flats I own greatly outnumber them.

6. Would you ever tattoo make-up onto your face and why?

wallpaper meme comic 2 500x281 wallpaper meme comic 2…. no.

7.  Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

I want to grow my hair out long… but not that long. I think I’d oped to have it chopped off and let it grow back. Added bonus to donate.

8.  Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

Personally, I’d rather wear summer clothes in winter.

Spirit Fingers and Social Relativity

Standard

I had watched the film Bring It On (2000) with my sister the other day and during the scene above I had the thought. “Wow, that really just described what it’s like to be a girl in today’s society.” The choreographer Sparky Polastri didn’t waste anytime ridiculing and criticizing each girl on the squad for any “imperfections” they have. Pointing out they’re flaws and inadequacies. This is a perfect representation of our societal stance and how totally unfair we can be to ourselves and to others. It is just goes to show that you cannot win in this sense. Everyone holds a different vision of “perfect” and it usually is something that you cannot possible match up to. So, why kill ourselves trying to live up to someone’s idea of perfection and being totally miserable doing it? Be perfect for your self and do not let anyone tell you what that “perfect” should look like. What do you take away from the clip above? Share your thoughts.

Now if you are a pizza… that’s another story, John Legend got that part right. :)

For the love of pizza!

The Waiting is Almost Over!

Waiting

I’ve been waiting a long time for you. I’ve thought about you everyday and every-night. I’ve thought about holding you and kissing you. Just the thought of being with you has gotten me through, gotten me through those late nights when the very thought of you made me cry. You’ve made me forget your absence and at the same time feel it so intensity. An intensity that made my heart swell and my pillow damp. Oh how you do these things to me! But I find comfort knowing you feel the same way, but I’m also pained by that knowledge. The knowledge that you too are alone and longing to be by my side; longing to feel my touch and sense my presence. You too have been waiting…

The longer you wait for something, the more you’ll appreciate it when you acquire it. Anything worth having is certainly worth waiting for. I can certainly attest to this truth.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has been with me on this crazy journey. Thank you for connecting with me, sharing your stories, and giving me inspiration and motivation to get through my days. I can’t tell you enough how much it has helped me and I am so very very glad to be apart of this wonderful community. I love you all so much!
