Still Here: Trying To Get Back In The Groove

Hi All!!!   Yes it's me and I am still around. My posting has dropped off considerably and it wasn't planned it just happened.  I honestly haven't had anything to post about or anything I felt like posting about.   I haven't taken outfit pictures in forever........I don't know, I don't want to believe I have lost the passion for blogging but as of late is just hasn't been at the top of my list of things to do. 

I do want to get back to it though, at least 1 post a week, so hopefully I can.  I have meet some great people while blogging and do hope to meet more.  I have also gotten some great inspiration (fashion, cooking and lifestyle) from a lot of my fellow bloggers and that's what I really love and appreciate about doing this.   So don't give up on a sista just yet, I am trying to get my groove back and get back to blogging.

I do want to say thank you to all of you that still support and follow me I really appreciate it.  In the mean time you can always follow me on Instagram @embracing_me76 to see what's going on in my life!

Well I hope everyone is doing well and I holla at you my loves later!!!

Music To My Ears: Tamar Braxton

Yes  I'm still here, I want to post more I really do but I don't have  much to post about.  I have been playing catch up on my favorite blogs because I haven't been visiting them much either.  Oh for shame, I know I know, lol!!  I will try hard to get back into the groove of blogging more one day!! :-)

Now, I did want to come and share a song (well cd) I'm loving right now.  I know alot of you know Ms. Tamar Braxton and probably have watched her reality shows.  If you have then you have seen her journey to getting back into the music scene and starting her solo career again (she was solo many years ago)on Tamar & Vince.  I for one was and I still am rooting for her music career.  I love her voice and think she has the ability to do extremely well this time around.    Tamar can be a little extra at times, but her talent is undeniable when it comes to singing.

I'm excited to see where her music career goes, I just hopes she kind of tones down the extraness (yeah not a real word) especially when it comes to those videos and live performances, lol.    But hey she wouldn't be Ms. Tamar "She,Her" "Get Your Life" and "Lies You Tell" Braxton. :-D

Anywho, here's Tamar's lastet single "All The Way Home" from her CD "Love and War".

Hope you enjoy and as always thank you for stopping through!!

Nailed It: At Home Nails

I'm no stranger to doing my own nails, whenever I went without my acrylic on my nails I did my own manicures and even between pedicures I did my own (when I needed it). However, I have only attempted to do acrylic on my nails once and that was in high school, uhmmmmm that was a DISASTER!!!    I saw other girls with them and loved the look but didn't at the time have the money to go get my own done.  Sooooo I attempted to do my own, let's just say that was the first and last time I did them, LOL!!!

Well that was until I had gotten older and had gone to get them professionally done, I tried again when I got tired of spending the money every 2 weeks to get fill-ins. The next time around was a lot better but still needed work.

Then recently after taking my acrylic off from the last time I had it on (had to give my natural nails a rest) I wanted to go back to my acrylic.  Yes having acrylic too long can damage your nails (that's why I take breaks from it) but my natural nails have never been really strong and I could never keep a nice length.   I've tried several nail hardeners and strengtheners, but they don't work and I got tired of trying.   So I decided to go back to the acrylic, however this time I decided to do them myself.

Praying God's richest and greatest blessing for you and your families this year.  Strive to make everyday this year and going forward your best day and to love everyone with all of your being.  Don't strive to make changes in your life because it's a new year, strive to be a better you and to change someone else's life for the better because God blesses you to see another day.

Getting Back To Me

Yes I know it's been a while but I am still here, still around.  I haven't really had much to blog about and I haven't taken any pictures to post either, lol!!  I won't make excuses but will just say one day (soon) I really hope to get back in the groove and post more (ya'll keep praying, haha).

You know I was having a conversation with my sister a couple of weeks ago on our way to work and we were talking about clothes/shoes (like most ladies do right) and I told her lately I haven't felt like dressing up wearing heels being extra cute (cause a sista is already cute enough, lol).  She tells me yeah I've noticed that because I was looking at your blog the other day and looking at your outfit post and thinking what happened she doesn't dress up, wear her heels anymore and look all fabulous (she didn't say that last part I added that, HA).

Ok stop let me say this before I go any further and people start thinking well dang gurl what did you do go around looking like a bum, hahahaha!!  No no no no I still dress work/church/going out appropriate but minus the heels, all the jewelry and the extra attention to details.  I haven't been trying to be a fashionista and look extra fly, I've just been putting on clean clothes, that fit, look right, make sure I'm clean and I fix my hair and then I'm gone, LOL!!!

Music To My Ears: George Duke

Not much going on this way, just winding down this Sunday evening and decided to share with you what I was listening to on my "Sunday Wind Down"!!

There is nothing better to wind down to than some smooth jazz and the one of the best to ever do it is the late, great George Duke.  This has to be my all time favorite song by him, don't you just love the groove on this?!?!

No Rhyme, No Reason:

Well I hope everyone has had a great weekend and is enjoying their Sunday!!!    Have a great and blessed week everyone!!
