Don't Wait For The New Year To Get In Shape


It's a day couple of days after Christmas now and as usual I ate too much.  But what can I say, my sister cooks so good.  I decided to not put off getting back into shape for the new year.  I started today at the Rocka-Fit Gym.  This gym is totally amazing with everything you need to keep in shape or get into shape for the new year. 

My little sister Daneen had been telling me to come, but I gave her every excuse I could think of to keep from going, but this morning I surprised her and myself by getting self motivated to get dressed in my new workout outfit "Ingrid" by D2T Designs.  It was a great Christmas gift so I put it to good use this morning.   As with most of D2T Designs now it comes with a texture changing hud so I can have chic new look every day at the gym.  Cotton blended fabric so I stay cool and comfortable while getting my workout.  Not to mention ladies it's some fine men up in there, oh yes.

Keeping fit is not only a good way to look good, but it's beneficial in making sure your health is fit too.  So many times we put off things that will help us to stay healthy.  A lot of diseases we can avoid by simply doing exercises to keep our bodies fit.  With a little exercise you can help keep hypertension, diabetes and more illness from getting out of hand.  So get moving and don't wait for the new year to get in shape.

Make Tiime For You During the Holiday

     Changing the way you think this holiday season is one way of coping with holiday stress.  Many people stress over last minute business details, last minute shopping and of course the holiday travel plans.  These things can be fun to a certain degree, but it's never fun to stress over them.  You only have a few more days before Christmas, so have a seat plan out your little list, but put a time limit of how much time you going to spend on each task.  Then arrange your to do list to make a date for you to do something fun.  


You have to take control over your to do list and not allow your list to take control over you.  It took me a long time to wrap my fingers around this nugget of advice, but I'm more happier now than I've ever been.  Once you have your list together then start doing what has to be done.  No sense in having a to do list if you never do anything.


 When your to do list gets close to your time for you.  Just stop.  Put everything away that has to do with your list.  Then get ready to do something special for yourself.  Taking control over your time is one key element that will help your life and your mental state be more healthier.




After a long day at the office I'm usually mentally exhausted.  I decided not to crawl into bed after work today, instead I meet friends at the Opera for a lovely play, then attended the awesome fashion show for Dirty Princess, once the show was over it was me time.  I dressed in my quilted jacket and freshly starched jeans by LaVian&Co called November Rain Bag 1.  November Rain keeps me warm and cozy while outside in the cold.  I'm having me time now, You should make time for you during the holiday, and everyday if possible.  

LaVian's November Rain Bag 1 available now at Designer Showcase until December 29, 2015.

Run On Love


What can I say, he makes me weak.  
Has me saying yes when I need to say no.

Just like a teen would giggle with excitement.


Yes, it's true, he makes me,
..Run On Love.

You Don't Know

Did you ever know
What it means to be heard?
Did you ever feel like a jerk?
Did you ever give up
On you pride
Just to have him by your side?
Well, if you don't know
What I'm talking about
You don't know nothing
You don't nothing
You don't know
You don't know nothing
About love

When the night time comes
Do your tears fall like rain
And in the morning, do they fall all over again
Tell me do you get down
On your knees and pray
That should never, never never go away

Well if you don't know
What I am talking about
You don't know nothing
You don't know nothing
You don't know nothing, nothing
About love
Oh love, hmm





Don't try to tell me
That I am out of my mind
'Cause anywhere the man goes
I'll be right behind

You don't know nothing
You don't know nothing, you don't know nothing
You don't know, you don't know
You don't know
You don't know nothing
You don't know nothing
Boy you don't know
You don't know nothing
You don't know
You don't know
Oh you don't know
You don't know, you don't know nothing
About love

You don't know nothing
About love
About love
About love
You don't know, oh oh, oh oh
You don't know nothing


About love

Taking Time To Love You

 What is this road? What is this journey? Who am I?  So many questions, so many parts of life that are unanswered, You want to know the whens, what's and whys.  We go about our daily lives in a hurry to take care of what is at hand at the moment, taking care of everything for everybody, only to leave yourself out of the process.

The end of the year is closely approaching us, the uncertainty of a new year will being.  If you like me I'm always making new years resolutions only to allow them to pass away into another year unfinished.  However, there is one resolution I do try to keep each new year.  That is making sure I take time for me.


So if you've been busy taking care of everyone but yourself, then take my advice and do something special for yourself.  Plan a day at the spa to have one of those tall dark and handsome men to massage those tense muscles in your shoulders, or go on a shopping spree for that dress which just went on sale you been had your eyes on.  Like this beautiful long red dress by Kaithleen called Marlene Long Dress exclusively made for Designer Showcase.  I love the way this dress makes me feel so feminine and sexy.  Thin spaghetti straps attached to a plunging neckline.  I love the way the fabric hugs my curves and then falls softly off the hips.



Finish off your stunning look with Zuri Rayna's Ava Collection V2 Diamond Gold jewelry set.  beautiful choker surrounds your neck with elegant diamonds with clusters of diamonds in pendant extended from a gold chain.  Matching earrings and bracelet will catch the attention of all.  I used DaneMarkZ's Blizzard Douche nails set with texture hud.  DaneMarkZ's Nails are exclusively made for Designer showcase.

He Doesn't See the Beauty

He doesn't see the beauty
in the dark blue sky above.

He never took the time to 
stop and feel love.

He's like a breath of poison
lingering in my lungs,

he gives me nothing but his
darkness but wants me

to be his sun.
