Week 3: I'm Still Standing Strong

Well, I am truly still feeling so blessed by my makeover from Jibri and T Oliver Hair Studios. I have really been feeling myself, and starting to shop again! If you look good, you feel good, and everyone around you benefits! Now let me know if you benefit from the happiness I feel in this picture!

Getting Back to Me

Hello family.  I have been away for a while because I wasn't feeling like myself.  A year after having my baby, I just lost interest in most things.  All I wanted to do was lay in the bed and watch Netflix.  I didn't care about my appearance anymore, nor did I even have the motivation to get out the house.  For me, as long as my baby was cute and she was happy, that's all I cared about.  I didn't realize it at first, but I was battling against some post pardam depression.

It was a harsh thing to realize because I seem to always have it together.  However, it happens.  I am in the process of getting me back to me.  One of the things that I did to get back to myself was to participate in the Jibri and T Oliver "Project Be-You-tiful" which gave me the kick start I needed. 

This project gives plus size women complete makeovers. They took measurements, did bra fittings, hair, make-up, and clothing.  Its a whole day of beauty, and its all about YOU!  Take a look at my transformation:

This will be a series of weekly posts.  I shared a little bit of my story on Facebook, and the responses were overwhelming of women that have gone through or currently going through the same things.  The Be-You-itful Project has inspired me to tell me story and share what I can to help others.  So please leave me your comments.  I would love to hear your stories too.

Hugs and Kisses,
