Advantage

My life has always been lived for others... I support this person, parent another, promote for one and advise 2 more... I'm not saying I don't look out for myself, I'm saying I put my needs and wants on the back burner way too often...

I'm a strong intelligent female and it seems I'm always playing second fiddle to someone else.. is this my fault or my destiny? It's nothing I've really noticed until this very point. I always talk about you can't do for noone else unless you do for yourself and I'm not fully living that philosophy!!! Talk about an eye opener... people know me but only by connecting the dots. I'm trying to build an Empire and that ain't happening if I don't start pushing myself even more and stop taking the bull ish others toss my way...

I've been in music quite a few years and let me tell u all, this ish ain't easy. People lie, cheat, scam and more... the stories I've seen and heard should he in a book somewhere. Maybe one day down the road my memoirs will be a great read.

Every project I enter is out of love for music and the desire to see those I love excel, AND be a part of something I love and enjoy. I've met so many awesome people along the way, including my amazing man, that I don't regret one single think that's happened. I just now know that I have to select projects that are well run and organized to be a part of or just run things my own way. Like I said earlier, I gotta do me or I'm no good to anyone else and I appreciate all that support me!

So my advise to anyone reading this is APPRECIATE those that have your back and never take them for granted.. even the biggest supporter will stop being there when all you don't realize everything they do....

  1. Totally awesomeness! You know I feel you on a lot of that! But just nod, smile, and keep your chin up. You are fabulous girl and just keep focus on the things you need to accomplish, starting with yourself first so you can radiate that positive drive you have!

  3. Jimmy and I always say we should write a book about what local bands go through. You get ripped off or screwed over and then ya have to just smile and walk away. We've realized that we're too nice and end up getting taken advantage of bc people think "oh they won't get mad so we'll just screw them over". But then again do we want to be known as the a-holes? Case in point; they messed up the bookings for the local radio show this week. We booked Wednesday but they have us on the schedule for Tuesday. Ok, so I text them and admit they messed up and cancel the other band but they left the event on reverbnation and facebook wrong so they aren't promoting us for the right day. I've messaged them twice and it's still not fixed. And then you could get me going about how venues expect you to do all the promoting and advertising for shows and don't raise a finger or spend a penny to even let people know they have entertainment! But I'll get off my soapbox, it's your blog.

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage #VoxBox

*This is a sponsored blog from Garnier Nutrisse and Influenster as I received this product to test for free

So recently I was selected to receive a new #VoxBox from Influenster of a beautiful light brown (#630 Toffee Nut) hair dye from Garnier Nutrisse. I have used this brand a few times in the past so I really had no worries with trying out this new one. I set up my phone and did my first "unboxing" video which was kinda fun and something I think I may do more of.



Inside were:



After mixing them as instructed I kept the dye on for the recommended time of 30 minutes in going from a dark blonde color to this light brown. I must admit I was a little worried the color would properly cover my head as I was applying; the bottle felt so light but I ended up with just a little more than enough and I still applied that to be sure. My hair as you can see is just at my neck length so I imagine if it was longer than shoulder length you'd be better off grabbing two boxes to be sure. …

#FindFrancis: Robert McLaughlin AKA: Rob Francis/Franchise

This is not an easy blog to write but one that is needed as I am a blogger and I have to use every resource available to seek help.

Today marks 2 weeks since our friend Francis was last seen and there has been absolutely no leads to his whereabouts. Right now we have to use all mediums available to spread the word and get his face seen. Only one local news station has covered his disappearance. That is not ok. He is a resident of Duval County and everyone in and around Jacksonville should see this flyer and be on the look out for him!

Rob is a music artist here in Jax, a laid back guy who works hard and is friendly with everyone. I personally have known him about nine years and he is one of the nicest guys I know, never disrespectful and always great to have a convo with about anything from movies and music to the world we're living in. He has had the same group of close friends the entire time I have known him and my husband and I run into him at EVERY ArtWalk in downtown Jax tha…
