Thus Far

So like I said, I've been on the steady on the grind. Today is my first day in the studio to lay down a track, and I must admit I'm a little nervous. All in all I think I'm gonna have fun though. I can't wait to post the song whenever I'm done. I'm also getting some more supplies for my accessory line. I already have a lot of pieces made but I really want to get a lot more done before my next photo shoot. There will be a lot of creative juices flowing today so I'm sure I'll be exhausted by the end of the day. I always am when I have days like this. 
I also never shared what my work-out routine has been looking like. I'm starting to be more consistent because I've been having a lot less sore days. I'm also getting better at my two a days when I do, do them. So far I'll run a mile, outside, not on the treadmill, and  then do some kind of weight training on Tuesdays and Thursday's. Monday I run 4 miles and do my abdomen. Wednesday I do yoga, and Friday I pick this long hill (long horizontally and vertically) and I do 7 sprints, 7 bear crawls, and I'm working up to doing 7 frog leaps, right now I'm just at one. That ish hurts my legs man. Then I run 4 times around the hill, or laps. Then since I'm up at the high school anyway I run around the track there twice. It ain't easy but I'm gettin where I wanna be so that's all that matters. Lookin forward to the weekend. 
Anybody elses week going good?

Protection Inspiration.

Most naturals wear their hair in protective styles during the winter and do most of their wash and go type styles during the summer. I tried it, and this fro attracts too much heat. I wear it out every once in a while but with  my running, and excercising it just got to be too much styling. I've started wearing protective styles a few weeks ago and I can say my hair truly appreciated it. Right now it's braided into a puff, but I'm in need of a change. I'll be doing a pictorial post soon on however I plan to do it. I think Im in need of inspiration.

Dream Catcher

I don't know a person alive that doesn't have a dream. If you don't have one, you've either given up on it or you're dead. It occurred to me that if all of us have these dreams and aspirations why don't we follow them. We choose to give up before we ever start and live these boring, safe, cookie cutter lives. Why? What happened to the true pursuit of happiness? 
My Uncle left yesterday. He and my cousin decided to walk to California. No money.  No car. Just bags and dreams. He wants to produce music and said he's not coming back until he gets what he went for. Now don't get me wrong, I understand why we all don't take chances like this. But why don't we try for even the little things? He made me realize that I can never get to all the places I want to go by playing it safe. Life is for the living so why are we not living?
I decided today that I am going to go for my dreams and I am not going to let anything stop me, and I do mean NO THING.
I'm so excited at just the thought.

Wonder Weekend

I know I'm late but I had to recooperate Monday. I hope everyones Fourth was as eventful as mine =).
I all started Friday when I had my Trash the Dress photo shoot. Or at least one of them. I had 2 dresses so I'll have 2 shoots. This one is the dress I made. I think I did a damn good job.
The photos are linked to my photographers FB page so if your in the KCMO area and need one for any reason she is amazing. More to come soon

After we went to the Art District to chill and get a bite for Hamburger Mary's, the food....don't trip I will be back because it was whats up. Saturday the fam had a fish and spag night. Bomb. Who don't like fish and spaghetti, and if you haven't had it, you need to get on my level. The whole fam was there and a couple of our newly married friends. The great debate of the night was about Kobe, the Laker's and so on. So if you don't know where I stand. The finger to Kobe. Hello Lebron, and long live the Laker's (of course when Kobe leaves, its a long story of why I hate him, I know that's a strong word but seriously it's that deep).
Next was the actual 4th, and what can you say. Who doesn't party on the 4th...if your from the US that is. 
Hope yours was great. Im out.
