In This Season Called Spring


Spring is one of my favorite seasons. During 

this seasonal time of change, I tend to exhibit

patterns of change in my life as well. Whether

 its rearranging my home, enjoying more 

outdoor activities or even dressing down in

more vibrant, lighter colors, Spring time is

the greatest.

Looking forward to many more feel good days.

Forever grateful, determined and blessed.

Until next time. ........

Practicing Self Care And Healing At Home


Self care is very vital and integral for women 

 old and young alike. Being able to provide care 

for one self on a consistent basis requires time, 

money, resources, planning and purpose. Really

a combination of all of these things. Only then 

can a woman find balance and peace cultivated

by her own hands.

After retiring from Teaching in 2014, due to

 illness, I was on the mend physically.  During

 that time I also went through a brief period of 

depression and anxiety about what direction my 

life needed to move in. Being a Teacher was 

more than just a job to me.  It brought me joy, 

but also added purpose and meaning for me in 

the form of being able to assist the inner city 

families with educational resources/support of 

my students. Now I had the task of advocating 

for and working along with a health care team, 

prioritizing my needs and goals to level up. 

Time for self care became a more extended part 

of my daily schedule. I discovered that a combo 

of leisure and planned care activities through 

out the day is essential for me and very 

therapeutic. Having these sessions helps to 

increase self awareness, independence, while 

learning through painful experiences and 

rebuilding the fragile part of me carefully.

Acrylic Painting On Canvas


As a fun afternoon activity, I pulled out a few 

stretched canvases, some brushes and acrylic 

scented paints (Green, Orange and Yellow) to 

create artwork for the hallway in my apartment.

My young assistant, age 5, enjoyed painting and 

creating with colors.

See if you can tell which painting belongs to whom.😂😂😂

Plus Sized Women's Tops-Shein

 Spring is here. And with that being said 

finding really great deals on warmer weather 

clothing was a goal of mine. After assessing my 

closet and weeding through mounds of items, I 

decided to put in a couple orders on tops solely. 

My jeans, pants, skirts etc still fit amazingly well 

so obtaining more of them were not necessary.

I purchased 18 tops in total at a grand total price 

of $108.24. Free shipping was available with 

each order. I was honestly impressed with the

quality of the fabric of each top, the perfect 

blend of colors and overall style.Definitely 

would recommend this site to other plus sized 

women interested in buying Spring/Summer 

items of clothing and cool accessories.

 Important note- Always read the reviews

 before purchasing. The reviews really help 

when trying to decide what to buy and answers 

many questions about individual items from 

honest customers as myself.

Stay safe and be blessed always
