Since the winter, I have been going through so much and I keep so much bottled up inside of me because I lack the time to vent due to my overwhelming schedule. Because of everything I have endured over the last 6 months, I decided that blogging would be a way for me to release my emotions rather happy, sad, or upset. I have so many interests (on more than things that require being purchased haha), I am very outspoken (as a lot of my friends know), and I come across a lot of things that I think other women should know and discuss. Being a new mother, full time grad student, and stay at home mom, I have found myself doing a lot of multitasking just to stay on the path of success. I refused to let any of my new experiences hinder my capabilities.
Growing up, my grandmother did her best to fill every void in my life. Just knowing what she expects of me and what she gave me to get to where I am today is what makes me strive for the best. In March, she passed away and that has had a major impact on my life. She was my backbone and now that I do not have that, I constantly battle with my emotions. I was robbed of so many experiences. My grandmother did not get to celebrate my first mothers day with me, see my son take his first step, attend his first birthday, or other important milestones that are to come. With my faith, I have to constantly remind myself that she is in a better place and that I am blessed to have had her for 25 years.
After my grandmother passed, it left me crushed and put me in a rage. I no longer felt the need to sugar coat anything or keep silent on how I felt. I did not care anymore what anybody thought or how they would feel about what I had to say because my feelings got put on the back burner far too long. I am a sophisticated, educated, religious, and powerful woman! My voice needed to be heard. I needed to show the world who I really am, what I like, and what I feel strongly about. Blogging allowed me to fulfill those needs, vent, and get me through this emotional time in my life.
For those reasons, my blog will get personal and honest. My blog will showcase what I take interest in and believe other women can benefit from. I will also voice my opinions, discuss my experiences and current battles, and share everything I think is cool or worth a discussion. This lifestyle blog will touch on the following things from my perspective:
Art: Hair, Nails, & Makeup
I would like for everyone to partake in the discussions to offer me new insights on the posts that I share with you and I hope that everyone can respect my voice and opinions as I will do the same in your comments. With that being said, welcome to Her F.L.A.M.E.S and I look forward to your consistent support. Enjoy!
