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.

Gluten-Free on I-95

I love traveling.. road trips, flying and even by boat. I just love to go. I didn't travel a lot as a kid.. Until I was 10 the only states I'd been to were my home state of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and Washington DC. By the time I'd graduated I had added North Carolina and Kentucky. I live in Florida now but my first time here was in 2002 and at 38 years of age I have only added South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, New York (airport only) and Connecticut to the list as well as The Bahamas (Freeport) and Cuba. I still have a million places I want to go.. Now though it's all a bit trickier because of my allergies.. I have been diagnosed as allergic to gluten, cats, pine trees and a few other things. I seem to have reactions to other things and need to be tested for more in addition to other health issues I have that food can complicate. This makes traveling HARD. I have to be careful at every place I go.. eating at events is completely out of the qu

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

Baecation at Sunrise Painting

Have you ever heard a song and just saw a visual in your mind as you listened? During the COVID 19 Pandemic I have found myself painting even more. Having created my whole life I'd never painted actual paintings on canvas. My medium has primarily been wood and glass, learning as I go with no real teachings from anyone other than hours and hours of playing with my Gramma's paints or watching my Mom draw. When painting my first canvas piece of a sunrise last year I immediately knew I needed to paint more on canvas. I grew up at a time where music videos were EVERYTHING. The effects, guest appearances and story lines mattered. When most songs from my teen years start playing I immediately see the video in my head and think back to what was happening in my life at that time and the impacts the music and more made on me. That's what art does. It comes in so many forms but it is always a part of the times. After painting that first canvas I was riding in the car one day and th
