Just when I thought I did not want another purse.....

I started to fall head over heels for Balenciaga bags. I have always loved them but they appeared to not give me "that" feeling because I was more drawn to flashy bags. I kid you not this will be my last designer bag( unless I can get a cute vintage Chanel;)!
I am going to save up because I need one in my life!
I love that its  classic piece! I can wear it with anything and the best part is there is not logo. I think as I get older I am not a fan of Logos as much as I use to be.
Hopefully I will be able to blog a bit more I miss it!

OMG! A new milestone

I have kept a weave in for the first time in my life for more than 3 weeks. Its actually 4 weeks plus a few days. I am so excited. The funny thing is my sister did it for me in Boston and I used some cheap hair that I bought in  New York. It was 14 inches for 11 bucks or something like that. I have washed it 2x a week and its still going, The cornrows are going back and she did not braid it tight so I did not have any issues in the beginning. I have not had pat your weave syndrome at all! I am trying to keep it in as long as its still wearable.
Once I move back she will be my designated weaveologist:)

It has been a while

I know I have been missing in action but I really have a good reason. I was working-LOL well I took on some extra work with my Unit so I have not had the time to do all the things I could do as a stay at home mom.
See I did no look to thrilled. Excuse my hair its a bit whipped in this pic thanks to the beret that I have to wear.
So what's new
Weight loss was going good then I had some issues in my personal life and went on a binge that lasted almost 2 weeks. So I gained the weight I loss back in all the wrong places-Hating myself!!!

Fashion- I purchased some new items but I am pissed that I have gained so much weight size 12 is snug- I could cry. I did pick up some nice sandals though

Vacation- i am going to Boston for 2 weeks with some time being spent in the NYC super excited to go home. Oh I leave this Friday.....Excited Only negative things is my hubby in Ibiza  this week and I will be gone for 2 weeks so we will not see each other for 3 weeks:(

Hair- I am still happy with my decision to relax. I went almost 8 weeks  and decided to touch it up. This is the longest I have every went between relaxers so I am proud of myself and I only touched up the roots no more root to tip. I used the original Motions relaxer and all of their items to deep condition and wash. I am happy with the results and I got a little bit of growth nothing to sing about though.I have not experienced breakage or excessive shedding(YES!!!)Only negative I want to grow it  but these layers I have is making it hard!

Did I tell ya'll I relaxed my hair?

I sure did and I love it! It has been about 2 weeks since I relaxed. It was so hard to continue this love hate relationship. I had such a hard time with the detangling, single strand knots and split ends galore.
I am not more focused on healthy hair and enjoying my hair and the ample time that I am now have since it has become a breeze to style.

I have reconnected with my old lover!

Running and I have had a love hate relationship. I use to  hate running especially when I was in the Army. I think I ran because I had to and to get it over with faster I ran faster. Fast forward 5 years!  5 years, 2 kids and about 40 pounds later-LOL I started running again. I started running maybe 4 months after my 2nd son was born. If felt great. It was ME time out of the house no disruptions!!! I ran at least 2x a week then I joined my first race it was a 5k it was cool then I did another one and another. I then completed my first 10k which is the picture above, and it felt good!
When I move to Florida I fell off. It was 100 degrees in the shade, at 5 in the morning and 11 at night-LOL well maybe not that hot but it was damn hot. I just gave up! I am now realizing I love running again. I do not run the distances I use to only because I need to build myself back up and lose some more weight to be a bit lighter on my feet . I think I will stick to it this time. I use to hate the treadmill but now he and I are friends for HITT training so its the best of both worlds:)

I am officially on shopping Ban!

I need to keep myself motivated on the weight loss journey and I thought what better way to do it than to ban myself from going shopping! Is this going to hard.....YES!!! I live downtown and whenever I go walking I am almost likely to go into a store. I plan on leaving my money at home along with my credit cards. I will only take enough to enjoy a snack if I am hungry.
My ban will be over when I reach 150 pounds or June sometime in the middle of the month when I leave to go to Boston and New York. I figure why buy more now when I can get better items in the states and a better body to make it look good:)
Also as I lose weight I will be able to fit into some of the clothing I have not worn in about 2 years. Hello 7 jeans I am coming to getcha~!
