I am just me...

Terms I hate:

Snow Bunny
Becky 

I hate preconceived notions of whats expected of me.. don't tag me with some stereotype. Some image that mainstream media and ignorant rumors have created just because you see the color of my skin. I am me, I love everyone, I am far from perfect but I never set out to hurt anyone, I fully believe that what we put into this world is what we receive from it, I love hard, I'm overly sensitive, I fear success almost as much as I crave it but currently the desire to just be more, do more, and fight for more is what is winning out. My heart has been broken, coated over and shaking pretty bad right now. I'm angry with the world but it also pushed me forward. I am loyal and ride or die when my heart is involved. I am powerful, I am hip-hop and I'm a simple chic from a small city in VA who found herself in a city with potential, a city that accepted and molded me, whose music scene has changed my life, is providing me growth and accomplishments. A city where the waterways are my refuge and the people are my energy. I am VA. I am FL. I am always Duval. I have curves for days, thick lips and hazel eyes. I know my positives and I focus on those because I also know the power of the Law of Attraction and learning how to make my life work for me. I am not some image you can paint in a perfect little box. Some description in the dictionary of a word you have characterized with a certain type of white female.. you see I can only be Kris and that is all I want to be!

Think twice before categorizing me!

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…

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food?

What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot....

As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a sch…

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. …
