Every Sunday from 10-4 downtown Orlando has a farmers market the main draw for me are the 12$ all you can drink Mimosas lol
I started like anyone else working for other people in this skincare & nail game when these pics were taken I was working at BOTH these businesses at the same time getting minimum pay and barely making it a lot has changed since then while these two places have shut down I have grown there is no shame in starting off small Hell I’m still a small one man operation but the only difference is I’m working for MYSELF doing services for MYSELF because doing beauty services to me is about the CLIENTS happiness and making them feel better about themselves !
So if you’re just starting out always remember you have to start somewhere and everything we do and everyplace we go is a learning experience
I have a head filled with beautiful natty dreads aka LOCS and you know what ?
They are nappy AF lol
Dreads dreadlocks locs etc ARE NOT CURLS you cannot wash them out, you cannot remove them without cutting them out .
I’m always surprised at how people think locs are something you do on a whim and it’s sad because people who look like me whose ancestors originated hair locing are so ignorant of them .
My two oldest kids are Jonathan 23 and Leslie 21
These two are actually the apple of my eye I had them during my struggle . I had them back when things were not all good when I had to fight for every opportunity when I was deemed not worthy and told I’d be nothing because I had kids young now folks are trying to say they are not mine because they grew up to be beautiful accomplished people ……It’s funny because when I first had my kids nobody wanted anything to do with them or me now these same people are saying that I don’t have kids and that I’m actually lying about having kids lol imagine that …lying about people you gave birth too jealousy is a funny thing
Then came Jason he’s my awesome autistic angel he brings me comfort and joy and stress lol I love all of my children and no matter what the internet says you can’t take away the fact that my children are my children ….
At 36 you don’t think having a baby would be a thing random thing that could happen to you …welp
In my case that’s exactly what happened ! Right when my husband I decided to pack up everything and leave the USA to travel BOOM
Our news came of the miracle to come ! Sometimes you have to let go and let the universe bless you !
…..fast forward four years later
My little earth angel was well worth it
It’s been a long journey but I’m where I want to be
People for the most part are unkind . Everyday there’s is a struggle to navigate through this world having to deal with bullies and other dangers such as racism , colorism , classism , sexism and more , we get caught up in the evils of the day and all of that negative energy can wear us down and dull our shine we have to remember to take care of ourselves mentally and physically so that we won’t vibrate at a lower frequency and attract unwanted energies that could potentially destroy us .
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST
