I have a boatload on my mind lately which is why I did a journal entry yesterday and I’m writing this. I have an update on the missing boater on Lake Nockamixon but as responsible media, I’m gonna keep the details private. I wasn’t suicide but a freak accident that lead to his untimely death. Anyway in other news, I have been very busy acquiring beautiful rainbow colors of yarn-I don’t know when the last time was that I went on a extensive yarn haul but after my last shipment comes today I will be on a yarn diet because I have so much pretty stuff to work with. I also am thinking about teaching myself how to crochet-God willing I will learn from good old YouTube and why the hell is Bella Thorne sharing nude photos on social media? I will definitely get to the bottom of that one and I will post the article Ivan I just saw something on TMZ which I have yet to post about Mr. Jell-O head himself Bill Cosby-that also will be on the blog today-I have sent my ambassador Application in to one of my favorite beverage companies-vita Coco, So I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with that I’ve gone from drinking tap water with sweetleaf Stevia to mass quantities of coconut water and my body loves it. It may be a little expensive but if I feel good with it then definitely continue-speaking of ambassadorships, I am very happy with the new flavor from Lenny&Larry! So excited in fact, I already ordered my box- #SaltedCaramel- chocolate cookie W/caramel chips-definitely will be reviewing ASAP-also I’m going to be trying some different coconut water drinks so those reviews will be coming in soon. I am going to hopefully be doing more reviews of more product just not doing as many ambassadorships. I only am going to do ambassadorships for companies that are my daily/Weekly staples in my diet. Now I know I’ve probably talked about it before but I have a friend on Facebook who is semi famous or infamous from MTV-specifically catfish, he has started being a spokesperson and advocate for anxiety depression, weight loss etc. all of those things that we don’t always wanna talk about, he’s talking about them and that’s important- Matt Lowe & Lowetivation. Another thing that people need to understand about anxiety, depression, and everything that goes with-is that we are not always happy and we are definitely good actors. Now today, it is Tuesday, last night was quite interesting because of a tweet I sent. It was a tweet of subject matter I discussed in another country which if I remember correctly it is called: “Teen Mom OG Trolling #Baltierra”. Because when I sent a tweet last night with my opinion of a scene from the show I got all kinds of assholes coming back at me for being rude and being negative not understanding something-excuse me, I’m sorry you don’t think the way I do because if you did you would see how I perceived the conversation. When you have a neurological difference, you don’t see things the way people see them. You don’t have the same emotion or reaction that neurologically sound normal people have. Now as I am going on my third year possibly I think I figured it out in August 2017. I’ve learned a shit load about myself I’ve learned why I do things the way I do-I definitely think I was misdiagnosed as a child I think a lot of money was wasted by my family on medication they didn’t necessarily work. I don’t think we’re doing work for m 2017. I’ve learned a shit load about myself I’ve learned why I do things the way I do-I definitely think I was misdiagnosed as a child I think a lot of money was wasted by my family on medication that didn’t necessarily work. As I look back, I wish that I would’ve known sooner So that I would’ve been able to go on anxiety medication sooner. But that’s life I am living now. I think always considered iamb doing wonderfully regardless of whether I do or do not have a relationship or a social life outside of “my circle“- there are still days where I wish I had more of a social life outside the house but I am an introvert I do not like big crowds unless it is it Eric Church or Kenny Chesney concert. I say that because when you’re at a concert of an artist you truly love whether you’ve met them or had a lifestyle that was similar to the current. There’s just that vibe where are you feel comfortable and safe. Another thing that I take comfort in is my hobbies, knitting and of course writing and sharing articles of interest. With regard to Mr. Donald Trump announcing his candidacy for reelection, I still believe that he is one of the qualified subjects and possibly the only subject qualified enough at the moment because we have a barrel of monkeys with a shady ass past in the democratic category. I may be registered Republican, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I follow every thing that goes in the Republican barrel I vote based on the candidate whether that is in the primary or in the general election. I am an independent thinker I am socially liberal I am accepting of others that some in the Republican Party do not except. I think the current GOP and their stance on The LBGTQ community is very twisted and not in a good way. I support the LGBTQ community, I love everything rainbow, I don’t give two craps whether you’re gay whether you’re straight whether you’re transgender bisexual etc. I don’t care you are who you are and you deserve to be happy. As for the abortion situation-I don’t know if I’ve discussed it before but even though I fully support the women’s right to choose, I do believe abortion is murder. The crazy thing with Hollywood not being supportive of certain locations that have passed the anti-abortion bill for that want to ban abortions. You could kill your career and I think certain Hollywood personalities are killing their career with their political beliefs playing a role in their acting careers I don’t think politics needs to be affiliated with acting in any way I think it’s shooting yourself in the foot sometimes literally. Anyhow enough with my babbling because I have other things to do today. I will talk to you another day but in the meantime stay tuned for anything and everything if I care to share.
So it’s Sunday morning, June 2-yesterday I was out and about doing my stuff with mom and I came across the idea that Had been buried in my head about a #SheShed. Granted, I have been thinking about this, because sometimes I feel like I need it. The reason I think that is because sometimes I feel like I don’t have my own my own personal space. I love having my family live with me/living with my family but the lack of privacy sometimes bothers me. That is why I thought a she shed would be perfect for me-not for extra storage because that we do not need but somewhere where I could go to get away from the crazy, somewhere where I can relax with no stress. So my she shed idea is still on the table just trying to figure out how to go about it if it’s going to become a reality. I realize that I don’t always “need” this she shed but sometimes it would be nice to have a place to go where nobody’s going to randomly walk in on me-I love my family, I’m glad my uncle is living here but the lack of privacy is starting to drive me insane after six months?-I have looked at options, In the sense of sport utility sheds and we all know that I love tiny house living I admire that but my collective nature with regard to Cosmetics and knitting and stockpiling the food sometimes makes me wonder if I’d ever be cut out for tiny house living/she shed capability. My life is pretty damn good and I am happy with the way my life is for the most part, all I want is a place that I can go when I feel overwhelmed and annoyed the world when I don’t want to be bothered. I’m always going to look at the she shed option whether I get one or not-with regard to mother nature and this tornado bullshit I’ve had enough, when it’s stormy outside, My mood sucks-that’s part of my anxiety disorder and not having my own space screws with my mind a lot. Part of the reason I love living in my own little world is that I can block out certain people etc. when I need to zone out I’m sure there’s gonna be another update to she shed before it gets published. Even if I don’t get my she shed, I’m always going to be daydreaming about it I’m always going to love interior design and I’m always going to enjoy shopping probably for things I don’t really need but. Anyway tonight is going to be a long night according to the weather report because I have 4 hours of showers coming up Thomas so I probably won’t be going to sleep until 1030 tonight. Finished rambling for the evening good night God bless and adios
OK, so I added a few more links to my homepage/website and The links are either campaigns or promotions. As an entrepreneur, I am very much interested in helping others in doing for others before myself. In the past few months, I’ve been very interested in helping people more than myself even though I enjoy shopping, etc. I also like to do donations whether it be time or small amounts of funding. I also like to do promotional work. Not everything I get paid for a lot of it I do out of the goodness of my heart and that’s fine with me because I find pleasure in doing some things for others. I have realized in the past few days/weeks that I being an employee anywhere whether it be a volunteer or a paid position is not always a Positive experience or a good thing. Anyhow today I did a little shopping-well a lot of shopping, unfortunately, made a little dent in this month funding but I got things that I needed or had on my necessary list so I am done spending for a little bit in the next couple months, I plan on upgrading the website I have not decided whether or not I am upgrading Grammarly or not because how often am I on the computer? I do a lot of work from the mobile devices of the iPad and the iPhone. To be honest I did flirt with a Microsoft product which I have decided that is not necessary for me at least at this time because my iPad is the iPad Pro and I believe that I can upgrade that a little bit if I add the pen and the keyboard. The question raised is do I need the keypad or the pen? With regard to the situation I had this week, it was being part of a group assisting someone who was down on their luck, and for some reason unknown to me, I am no longer affiliated with that group but to be honest, it is no skin off my nose if you have a problem with me whether it be personal or business because it is not my problem it is yours and if you cannot or do not understand then I am not going to waste time explaining. I am me and I am not changing for anyone if you understand me that’s wonderful we will have a lifelong friendship but if you cannot or will not accept or understand me then we’re better off not knowing not associating. I realize that I can be difficult but the elephant in the room is called autism, if you do not understand if you cannot understand, if you do not want to understand then I am better off without you I do not like wasting my emotional time on people on situations where I don’t get benefits of friendship/relationships. Yes I’m in bed early because I’ve been working all day which is what I was saying before-I have been shopping I have been exercising I have been working, working on my knitting working on my blog obviously and spending time with my children who are the most important thing in my life because they understand they love unconditionally. I am going to check the boards for any more stories that I could share but I appreciate as always you listening because this is my therapy I’ve been getting things out of my head and onto a platform.
I have been very busy lately, and I’m very happy that last month is in the past. I have been very devoted to finishing the Sprinkles Blanket which is the largest project that I have embarked on. Working with PremierYarns is absolutely wonderful but I’m probably shifting to another brand for a while. This morning, I got the chance to go use my coupon at Jo-Ann. It was 55% off one item which I used the opportunity to get something I don’t usually. The winner is the Bernat Velvet yarn in Gray Orchid. I don’t quite know what I’m going to make which is what I can normally do now because every time I plan a project it backfires. My current project is far from perfect but it is what it is. I’ve done some windowshopping and there are definitely some things that I like not everything and come on with me or be sent to my studio. After I finish this blanket I’m going to work on my path rug and then maybe plan the next project. Knitting is my creative passion even though I am not a professional nor do I do anything perfectly. My blogging is not perfect either but it’s okay since just getting things out of my head makes everything better. So it’s back to the knitting and LivePD. I’ll be back later when there’s more on my mind.
Another journal entry, there are several stories of interest for me today but out of respect for the families involved-I am not going to share them because one is drama and two are family matters that I don’t want to invade because Media needs to respect privacy and has a low level columnist, I am not going to invade privacy when it has been asked to not. Today was a very good day just like the past few even though I spent the day knitting and actually caught a stitch slip which I couldn’t go back and fix I did my interview. Anyway aside from that one issue my projects are going well-Pink has decided to go crazy on me and not eat normal like she used to-we got her some mixed vegetables and she even turned her nose up at that for the most part though she graze. Lulu Rose loves the vegetables-I think Pink wants butter on her vegetables and I don’t think my mom is going to go for that. Anyway I am sitting in bed after a quite busy afternoon. I’m actually looking for jewel early night Because today was a very long day and I’m very happy that LivePD is coming back tomorrow night. Also looking forward to the new series LiveRescue Coming in April. Anyway I think I’m going to sign off for the night if I find an article worthy of posting I will.
The big question is, who made Mr. Cook look like this
I am sitting here watching homicide hunter and knitting. The girls are hanging out with me and I have made the executive decision to start feeding the queen vegetable medley at night instead of kibble or baby carrots. I think that she has come to that age where she needs a bedtime snack. I finished the platoon scarf and now I am working on the newspaper blanket, A project that is 105 stitches long or should I say wide and even though I cast done via a size 5 single needle-I have transferred it to a size 6 circular needle. So I continue with my story about my knitting, I have gone several rounds/rows with the newspaper stripes & I’m actually enjoying working a larger project vs smaller / shorter projects. Though I am thinking about purchasing more yarn bags so that I can have multiple projects at a time. I have two blanket projects going and a ton of needles and yarn. Along with the crafting stockpile, I have a full selection of my favorite cosmetic brands. Enough that I was gifted a second craft trolley to keep my stuff in. I probably have enough concealer and foundation for months, maybe for the remainder of 2019. Even though I have my favorite brands, I haven’t ruled out adding another brand or two. I have been interested in several new to me brands. If you didn’t know, I sometimes sample a brand via PoshMark. PoshMark is one of those places where you can buy and sell practically anything fashion related of course then there is Mecari hey similar site which I have not tried and not quite sure if I’m going to hell because apparently they don’t crack down on fakes/imitation, as well as Poshmark, does. Next month I have a few possible new promotions coming-we will see how things work. Regardless if I do or do not get an ambassadorship, If I like a product I will review it and share it with my followers-if I love it then I will do my damnedest to promote the hell out of it So as I wrap up this post, both my sweet girls are resting at my feet, hoping that we have a quiet night of peaceful rest. Good night God bless and as always, thank you for reading.
Last night, was interesting-I sat in bed and did a lot of thinking about everything-places I wish I could go and things I wish I could do. Even though I love my life as it is I know that it can be better, Not saying anything is wrong with my life because certainly not other than a few missing pieces. I thought about how much I missed the Caribbean and how much I hate snow and cold. I love the city of Philadelphia but there are other cities I love also, Not saying anything is wrong with my life because certainly not other than a few missing pieces. I thought about how much I missed the Caribbean and how much I hate snow and cold. I love the city of Philadelphia but there are other cities I love also, I had the fortune of growing up in the virgin islands and if I went back there I don’t think I would ever return or maybe I will go to Florida so I had voting rights. Because voting to me it’s very important. Anyway I have been flirting with a new brand of stores in the cosmetics community. Tarte Cosmetics has launched a junior, sugar rush cosmetics. It is a lower-priced high-quality brand available at Ulta and online of course. I’m still thinking about that. Due to the crazy shipping policy of Sephora, I have spent probably $12 unnecessarily in shipping, I’m still frustrated with the fact that we cannot get our “gift” without paying for another product-what’s the damn point of calling them GIFs if you must make a purchase in order to redeem gift. Anyway I have made it damn clear via Twitter and my reviews my future with the company is in doubt. Thankfully I have accounts with my favorite brands that I either voluntarily promote or I’m an ambassador for. There are two nutrition groups that I have my eyes on that I might want to do ambassadorship with. One is based in Bethlehem Pennsylvania and the other is based in the great state of Lexington Kentucky. But who knows I may do both I’m hotel and kickbacks will help me decide which is better. So I have been doing a lot of knitting today and not much updating Facebook at least my account, I have been working off one of the kids accounts because I didn’t want to see a lot of the drama that’s going on in other places. I did not go to the gym today but I did get a workout in after a little bit. I did some research on anti-inflammatory foods and foods that will help with constipation etc. today was just one of those days where I didn’t really give two fucks. I’m at that point in my life where I do not care about certain things I do care about my country of course but there are things that I do not care about and that would be the crazy shit happening in other countries I don’t think it’s necessary to worry the Americans with what’s going on in other countries right now unless it’s going to affect our country. I am rather pissed off at the Democrats because they put our president in a awkward position with the Mueller report which found out that there was no collusion with Russia etc. and the Democrats made too much damn money out of that situation now it’s time for us Republicans and independents to fight back bring the country back to where of my ancestors once viewed it or had it. Aside from my country, I have been thinking about my addictions. My addiction to shopping is thankfully controlled by my higher-ups. If I were to find a relationship, I would need to find a very rich bastard who would be able to pay for and put up with my crazy. When I say my crazy, I mean my day today-when you have autism you never have a predictable day because you do not know when or what will trigger an anxiety attack etc. or you never know what interaction will trigger you. Anyhow this entry has been very long and rambling but it’s very therapeutic for me to release my angsts and energy. So I will sign off for now and I will return to the journal portion at a different time.
So the past few days have been very interesting, between the Sephora saga and today is my dad’s angel anniversary; 11 years ago today. I have been having mood swings and all kinds of crankiness. Usually, my patience can be kind of unpredictable. I usually like to keep to a schedule and if I get off schedule I get very upset frustrated etc. with regard to the Sephora saga, the other day I was interested in getting my free 500 point reward: Tarte Cosmetics Quench Hydrating Primer. I was very unhappy with the fact that you currently are unable to redeem gifts over a certain point amount. So having to make a cash purchase just to get your gift is absolutely ridiculous. When I couldn’t redeem my gift in the store I sent an aggravated tweet to Sephora. Within a few hours, I had a reply from them that they’d forward my displeasure. So with my #LuckyDayApp $10 off, I was able to correct the mistake I made yesterday and traded in one item for another unit of the 500 points VIB Prize. Mind you when I got home from my activities today, I placed an order and I’m getting another one: the third primer along with some setting spray which I need for my back up drawer. Speaking of back up drawer I know I have 10 extra drawers because I went to Michael’s this morning and purchased a second 10 drawer multicolor craft trolley which I use as a makeup trolley. Lord help me if I need a third one. In other news, today is the 11th anniversary of my father’s passing and every year for the past 11 years has been very difficult this time of year from mid-March until after Easter. In fact, any day/holiday specifically is more difficult without my dad around but I am very blessed to have had him in my life. Even though he was not my biological father, he was my dad a dad who accepted me for who I knew if and or buts. You will always be one of my favorite angels and I know he’s always watching over me and the family. So for lunch today we all took a road trip up to his hometown and had lunch etc pizza and cheesesteak. Yes, I’m rambling and being random but that’s how my mind is tonight. Tomorrow’s going to be back to some kind of normalcy. Junk food for the month is done if you can even call it junk food, I no longer eat like that very often. So I think it’s bedtime for now and I’ll get back to regular blogging tomorrow, hopefully, there’s gonna be something worth sharing.
So I have some interesting news about my #ShoppingAddiction #BeautyCollection, I am getting a second make up trolley from my favorite craft store. Michael’s Crafts has anything and everything in the way of organization and creativity in my opinion. While I do you shop in in other places, I do enjoy going on a shopping spree occasionally there and I am fortunate enough to have a location nearby. A lot of my shopping is done online but also a lot of my shopping is done in the store, it just depends on what I need and when. While I am a bargain shopper I also love story and names when it comes to certain items. My skin care is necessary to be #TarteCosmetics. My toothpaste must be a certain brand because it is the best out there for sensitive teeth. If you want to know more about this magical toothpaste, feel free to drop me an email or a tweet or message on any of my feeds. I love spending my time at the gym as much as I love spending my time at home with my canines working on my netting. My knitting is something that connects me to too late family members. My Nana who passed away in 2010, taught me how to knit while we were on vacation; or should I say in my #2Home, #TheUnitedStatesVirginIslands.A place in which I am very fortunate to have spent a lot of my youth and adolescence. I still follow many things the Virgin Islands and I tell everybody who says that I need to come down for a visit that if I ever came back to the island I would not go home. And going home/being at home I have a reason to be here. Just because I can “work from anywhere/At home” doesn’t mean that I don’t have responsibilities here in my home state, in my home Township. Over the past maybe two years I have become more involved in my community, maybe less than two years but it feels like forever because I have always wanted to be connected be involved. I have lived in this particular Township since 1985 and I severely care about what happens here while I don’t always agree with the politics in this town, I like having friends in high places and friends in high places means that you don’t always have the same ideas politically. Speaking of politics, I’m very much looking forward to the 2019 primaries. The 2019 primaries for my jurisdiction is May 21 and I am blessed enough to have my jurisdiction headquarters right down the street from me. I am the deputy constable of elections. Some people think that even though it’s a twice a year job we don’t have to work all year round but they are wrong. On a side note, I am sitting here in bed watching #LivePD,I really really despise this asshole subjects who say “You work for me” or I need to sign such and such I don’t see such and such “show me a trespassing warrant” “You know you’re violating me and you know you’re going to regret it“ when a subject try to intimidate an officer while they’re performing their legal duties it drives me absolutely insane because people think they know the law more than an officer. As someone who has followed her law throughout her life and as someone who respects law-enforcement etc. I have self-educating myself on certain topics so I do know something I’m not gonna reveal anything but I have been told that I could be a police officer. So this blog was originally about my cosmetics addiction, I will say that I have a cosmetics addiction as well as a urine addiction, I do like to go shopping in general and sometimes I do stockpile which is why I started this entry in the first place because my make up stockpile drawer for a back up items is practically overflowing. So I am going to go scour the interwebs and see what else is of interest for sharing on this blog. Thank you for listening or shall I say reading my rambles.
Dear readers, I have been cutting back on the crazy posting of things that annoy me because lately, I’ve been needing to find my peace and sanity. I have been doing a lot of work on Instagram-I do primarily free promotions of products that I use on the daily. I am not particularly open to offers of “will you promote this or that for us” unless it is a product that I do use-I got a message on Facebook from a lady in a small town in the state of Virginia-I love the state of Virginia but I don’t necessarily want to hook up business wise for someone that I do not know, anyways she was wanting me to probably purchased from her in order to get a Scentsy Business off the ground.-No thank you-I know about the company I have witnessed certain celebrities work with the company and I do not want to go there also I have been monitoring a lot of make up brands because many are coming out with very similar products there is one company that in particular, I do not like because all they do is copycat household brands cosmetics wise. I am always monitoring for copycat wannabes so everybody out there needs to watch their ass because you never know who’s watching you. And I know there are people probably watching me. I have been gracious so far and I’m going to continue to be gracious about the comments and compliments. Whether I am officially working with any brand or not I am going to be good to them and push their products because I like their products not because I’m getting paid to or getting benefits too. Tonight I am up late watching television, have my iPad next to me because there is a special coming up about our beloved the late great Coy Luther Perry II. It has been 13 days since he left us suddenly and tragically, I have learned so much more than I ever would’ve thought about Dylan McKay/Fred Andrews, I am very proud of how he kept his personal life and family life off the charts off the radar, I wish other celebrities had the knack to keep their privacy. Certain celebrities need to realize that their 15 minutes/15 years of fame is dunno. Certain people need to relax and realize when their careers are at a standstill. Last night I dreamt about my own house, also known as not happening but I would love if I could transform the garage into an apartment. I am used to my new living arrangement but I am very unsettled that I do not have any privacy, sleeping in a room with my dogs Is not the problem-the problem is I no longer have my own bathroom, I no longer of doors on a bedroom-I am sleeping in a common room. There is something good that’s come out of this whole mess though, getting my my own make up trolley-something that I wanted from the very beginning of my journey in to the cosmetics world-today I added a new palette to the collection -#LoveInLondon, #BHCosmetics that is the brand that I found on #Poshmark, Posh Mark is where I go when I need something but I do not wanna pay full price or I do not want to pay full price for an item I want to try. Trying a brand and not having to pay full price is pretty damn good and they have definitely cracked down on counterfeit. I am now primarily a buyer, I did sell a few things for my collection which I will admit I wish I had placed differently so I got a higher storm of money but I learned. Some days I’m Ballin on a budget some days I don’t mind paying full price for something. There are days where I am daydreaming about a vacation but at the same time, I know that if I went on vacation I may or may not come home because I’d be content with different scenery. Anyway hopefully tomorrow, I will be finding some new stuff to post and I may even be starting a new category on the website because I find a lot of things on Pinterest that I really like and I like to share things that make me happy or make me think etc.
