I have been curious about a few things as the days go by and I constantly recieve comments on one particular post. Is it a way to remain neutral in front of others by avoiding commenting on any other posts? Is this post the one that comes up most in your online searches?
Do you feel more comfortable leaving a comment where others have left one? Have you guys declared that one post the notify Tiesha post 😄.
That “Good afternoon and Happy Almost Friday…Day” post seems very popular these days. Wheter with real readers or spammers. I appreciate the love either way! Again, I was just curious and to address some of you guys questions in one shot here goes.
1. I Tiesha am the only one blogging hence my first post. I paid to create this space to express myself and will continue to do so. I have set things up in a very basic and clean manner for a reason.(I like getting to the point)
2. No, Im not interested in sharing which web hosting site I am using for various reasons. My apologies
3. I’m a novice when it comes to all this but I’am learning all by myself how to do this day by day. I learn something new almost every other day in regards to ways I can “improve” my site but Im not too interested in making mine look like a cash cow. You know with ads everywhere…I personally hate all that click bait stuff. But if anyone has any ideas that they really want to share with me you know how to contact me and if not keep reading. Im not opposed to suggestions but will always stay true to my own nature.
4. I dont worry about thieves who lack the ability to communicate and therefore troll for others work.
5. I only hoped that others would read my posts and enjoy or relate to them. Take what was useful and enjoy their lives. Which leads to the next answer..
6. I have not set up a means for you to contact me here for if you are a regular visitor you would have come across my other social media platforms like youtube and can message me there. Im not big on various emails and etc. Its me here and on youtube offering visuals!
7. I really strive to be just me. Not a copy.
8. I really am a geek at heart in regards to my love and apreaciation for the written word in (comic or Manga) form particularly lol. I read books too but they have to be under the romance or supernatural genre….ah who am I kidding those self help books and history books are my thing as well. Aw and children books thanks to my little one! I love pins (that you wear) so this is why I like the Lootcrate boxes but sadly the Anime box is my preference and phone charms are given instead of pins. So, I visit Hot topic whenever I get the chance or Ebay. I also ONLY watch shows with subtitles….basically k dramas, J dramas and Taiwanese dramas and Anime. My love for foreign films started with African movies! Have you ever seen the African movie called BEYONCE?
9. Thats all folks!
10. Enjoy your day!
You can check out my unboxing here August 2016 Universal Yums unboxing!
And I’ll be back with a review when I have sampled all the goodies!

Hello to all those taking the time to read this as regular visitors or those here for the first time reading with pure curiosity! Today, I thought about what I could share that perhaps many people are dealing with. Im a mom of one and that one is the most amazing being on the face of this earth to me. I love him dearly and strive to protect him as best as I can. See, my son was diagnosed on the spectrum (Autism) and as bright as he is he has trouble reacting as others would in certain situations. Not just anyone could or can deal with him, tolerate and redirect him when he is having trouble understanding a situation or transitioning from one thing to another. But thats not the problem on the bigger scale. Its that in my state he is not required to attend school right now YET I have been contacted non stop about Universal pre-k enrollment for him. When he is “required” I have other options to choose from other than public school but the state of NY and city NYC would try and make parents think otherwise by means of miseducation and bullying. Not knowing/caring about every individual situation. Because there are many departments even if one knows and understands someone else from another will continue to harrass you on the matter. I was literally harrassed by means of mailings and phone calls all this year regarding Universal Pre-k that is NOT mandatory but seems to be the push. If my degree was not in Education and my child was extremely behind in any area including social skills (that the help he gets at home and outside already does actively target) I would have continued looking for suitable schools. However, me knowing my child and what his strengths and weakness’ are I know that not just any environment would do and he continues to thrive and stay injury free being taught by me at home and with the assigned therapists he continues to see. It appears because I was vocal about being harrassed via mail with flyers and phone calls from the Dept. of Ed all year long that to make themselves appear innocent in that regard I have now recieved mailings about what NYC “STRONGLY RECCOMENDS”(their words in all the letters about Universal Pre K) from our health care provider and another agency.
Now listen to this to understand my concerns on the matter of how just throwing all 4 year olds into school no matter their personal overall developments is not ideal for everyone. Of course, if you have to work outside your home and have no other choice whatsoever other than to put them in pre-k I understand your situation and send nothing but positive vibes towards you and your little ones. But if you are the type of parent who wants a break from your hopefully average developmentally wise 4 year old then you might not understand or even care. (I still send positive vibes to you and your little one) If you could careless though you can stop reading now for we are two completely different kinds of people. The other day I ONLY learned that the owner of the center where my child goes for therapy subbed for the PT (phyiscal therapist) because my sons inner right arm was bruised and swollen. We stepped outside when my little one told me he hurt his arm and that he fell. I went back in for answers and an ice pack. Of course the owner and others had no clue that he was hurt and wheter they were lying or not is up for grabs. Of course other matters like does he even have the creditials to have subbed for the physical therapist to begin with came to my mind among some others like why was I not told of such an arrangement for that day beforehand. See, I understand my child and that others WILL NOT care for him like I do even when they are suppose to be operating with his and others like him best interest at heart. People do what is best for them espeacially when a child is unable to convey in full details what has transpired and this is of the upmost importance and a very crucial factor to consider when sending your child to be with countless other kids barely supervised as the required staffing for 12 or more toddlers are unrealistic as the requirements for the assistant teachers are. This is to say that anyone could literally work in Daycares or a Pre-school’s these days. And many times untrained volunteers and parents are doing such without outsiders knowing. Not to mention they are not being paid as they should be for being responsible for others children. In the past I had to actually report a day care my son (at age 2) was going to when I picked him up one day and his eye was bruised and no one at that day care made a proper incident report or bothered to call me between the hours they had him from 9am – 4pm. Of course no one there treated his eye area either! Im sure that there has to be some decent daycares and pre-schools somewhere for toddlers and toddlers recieving services like mine but I have yet to find them. The people and the environment would have to be safe enough for my child. Their interests would have to be soley on education and NOT medication. All too many times facilities for children on the spectrum disorder operate on the basis of selling pharmactical drugs for profit/kickbacks/Funding to toddlers in disguise of helping their development. Nevermind, the side effects! They have all sorts of “medical staff” and “social workers” not there to truely help the child and the parents but to do the opposite. Seeking to act on behalf of a child they do not know to ultimately have control and profit off of. Yes, of course many have a concious and actually do more positive than harm but it has to be said that there is a very thin line when money is involved.
Anyway, I thought to share this to give comfort to any other parent(s) who wished to have their child(ren) educated by other means than public school. For those who are like me and have been harrassed via mail and phone by the Dept of Ed over Universal Pre-K enrollmemt which is NOT MANDATORY in NYC nor the only educational option! If your child is speacial needs or has any developmental delays wheter physical, emotional or mentally or not and you know that everyday they would be bruised and swollen or something else detrimental to their well being if not properly monitored by the right kind of people or in the right kind of setting then you know that one size does not fit all and have your common sense reasons for seeking/exploring or continuing what is best for YOUR CHILD(REN). If those who work supposively for children’s best interest do not seek to know this much but blindly reccomend things then understand that they have ulterior motives! I suppose much could never be expected from those who push for children to be guinea pigs for all sorts of new vaccines for profit. Never admitting that vaccines are not a one size fits all and the 1# reason for almost all cases of children being diagnosed on the Spectrum with Autism/Neurological damage. Since the Dept of Health works with the Dept of Ed and neither want to link when a child has last recieved their vaccines to the fevers, seizures, lack of eye contact, lost of speech, various sensitivities and abnormal behavior or worst a paralyzed state and death even if its days apart from a wellness visit for shots/vaccines. Shots that have been proven to have heavy metals infused in them as cheap perservatives, blood that no one gets tested prior to receieving and dairy/nut by products again no child is tested for prior to getting the vaccine. Parents aren’t even given pamplets about all that is in these shots to begin with and the possible side effects like in my unfortuante case where my sons former Doctor advised that it was safe for him to get two or more shots a visit that equals over vaccination for many and raises the dangers! Or should I say did do so in his case! It is the elephant in the room even when parents have witnessed the horrific damages first hand and HONEST Doctors concerned with peoples well being and not profit have pointed to this epidemic only to mysteriously die not to long after due to “natural causes” or become discredited to discourage others in the medical field from being vocal and harming big Pharmas cash cow.
Please continue to love yourselves and your little ones. I wish those about to start pre school/Universal Pre-k and above all the very best! I will be looking for programs specifically designed for children like my son in regards to dancing or karate to enroll him in for the fall to get all his energy out and have some wonderful experiences! Talk to you guys later…..hopefully I get my Bobos and Degusta box before Sept 1st!
I cant say for a fact that the owner saw my blog post and then phoned me. I’ll just have my suspicions. Of course he could have really wanted to check up on my son. He called a couple mins ago to inquire wheter or not he was okay. I told him that he was and asked if in the future he had to sub if he could tell me and that I did not know his qualifications. Perhaps that struck a nerve because he exhaled heavily and said that he was the supervisor of all the PT’s and I believe he said he was a PT and that he has been doing this for 25 years. Now I let people know Im college educated but when folks tell me how long they have been working with kids as if ALL kids are the same I cannot relate to them. My son is not a copy but an original and is different from all the other kids at the therapeutic center. They are all different. When he said my son fell alot and that he wanted to challenge him I thought but have you observed a regular session of his. In any case at least the man/owner called regardless of how short and frank he was as it felt forced or against his will honesty but I wont dwell on it anymore. I expressed my expectations and concerns. My little ones arm is sore to the touch but the swelling is gone and the bruising that remains will hopefully be gone in a couple of days. Because of my sons mentality I cant help but to be concerned when he has hurt himself outside of my presence and advocate for him. He is unable to do so for himself. I have and now life goes on….
Hello, how is everyone doing? Im doing okay 👌 The heat is getting to me but more than that the random irritations of life. When unexpected and unfair events occur it can get anyone upset and does intially bother me but then I remember that there is so much more to life and way more good people in my corner than bad. That wheter I get the chance to be around them or not just the thought of them or their encouraging words make me forget all the irritations this life has to offer. Its so easy to feel down and out. Personal issues, community and global issues…urgh! Well, I did a pick me upper move and “beat” my face aka applied a heavy amount of make up and looked flawless and cute and did not take one pic -___-. Its irrelevant on the grander scale of things I know but Im just saying for the record that I loath myself when I do such good make up jobs and dont document them! What was I thinking…..oh yea, it was hot and I was surprised I was not melting. My LO had gotten my attention before I snapped a pic when done and I totally got in mama bear mode. Forgetting all about myself. No one talks about that delicate balance lol. Some forget all about the upkeep of themselves after motherhood and I was guilty of that the first two years. I had acne gallore (shivers) and shaved off all my hair for many reasons with one being it made my life easier. I have pics to prove it….but I’d rather share some other time lol. I said all the above to say to the mother’s reading this. Love your LO’s and dont forget about you. If you do I totally understand and I TOTALLY RESPECT THAT over a mom or dad that neglects their child (ren) to live their lives. Once you create another life it is no longer about you. Some inherit the instincts to nurse and protect their babies and others dont. I dont know if therapy should be immediate after child birth or not but it sure wouldn’t hurt today. Today’s world is so fast paced and hectic. Everyone is just trying to make a living and sample what it means to REALLY live. I’ll shut up now….I just felt like typing to you guys who may come across my blog. I felt like sharing what was on my mind. Hopefully, I dont forget to snap a pic of my little achievements that make me happy. Its always the little things. Speaking about little things! One of my snack subscription boxes should arrive today! I recieved my Ipsy bag yesterday but it so didn’t excite me. Even with the freebies I was able to add on with my points. Exhale, I’ll share pics of what I got later. Nothing thrilling this month just very small samples or products. If I get one more eyeshadow brush I’am going to SCREAM! 😨😨😨
I am in love with this box for it had so many good items! As you can see it had some known items like the Honey Bunches of Oats and Marie Cookies by Goya but the item I thought I would like the least I tried the other day and saved half of the bottle for today! That Pulp Free Aloe Vera water with Mangosteen and Mango Juice drink by ALO is EVERYTHING! It tastes exactly like Lychee though…..I know because I recieved a pack of Lychee flavored HI CHEW in my July 2016 Universal Yums box that featured Taiwanese snacks! And IRONICALLY this drink is also made in Taiwan….hmmmm 👀 well thats all I can say about that lol. It taste more like Lychee with a hint of mango unless mangosteen tastes similar to lychee which I have never had. In any case this drink excited my taste buds and refreshed me so I immediately logged onto Amazon.com to find it. Well, sadly they only have the version with pulp so I have to check some supermarkets now. The other item that surprised me in this Degusta Box was the Loacker Chocolates called Loacker Rose of the Dolomite! I had only enjoyed the lemons wafers by Loacker that I was able to find in select stores in my area but now I will be searching for these delicious hazelnut and creamy chocolate bites by Loacker! I did try the Chipotle Mayonnaise by Sir Kensington and liked it! I plan on making some tuna sandwiches and using it tommorow. I have had this box for about a week or more now and got to fry some fish two days ago using the grapeseed flour by White Lily that was also included and it did the job! The cow tails by Goetze are not my cup of tea but the little ones love it so thats great for them as a treat. I still have to try the Chai tea by Oregon Chai ones of these days and will be back witb my two cents on that! The meat sticks by Vermont were satisfactory as well as the Popchips Ridges and I will look for them online to buy later. If you are interested in this subscription box it is $19.99 a month and your first box cab be sent to you at $9.99 if you check out my previous blog post entitiled “Patiently awaiting…..” for the link and coupon code! Enjoy 😘
Hey everyone, how’s it hanging? Im inside laying down trying to rest….yes “trying” is the operative word lol. All the sad racial inspired events all over this Country and beyond is really getting to be too much. Too much to consume and then say hey everything is great in America! To say racism is a thing of the past. To say an officers job is to protect and serve! Sorry but no one is buying that narrative anymore. The cats out the bag! I actually think many (citizens and those who joined the police force to do good) will need psychological help after each day that pasts with mainstream media defending killers in uniform time and time again and social media and REAL independent reporters showing the real videos of horrific crimes everyday with a person of colors life being lost. Then, to walk outside in my predominantly black community along with many others and see the “I dont care about life anymore attitude exhibited or I dont care what others think so Im gonna curse outloud and act a fool and etc” the youth have adopted because they see and know the injustices is nothing new to their people but are told to go to school and etc as if everything in society/their neighborhoods are ok…. or that they are safe. Yea……that’s not going to work much longer. People all over need to address the elephant in the room. Pick a side and stay there! If you care about ALL LIVES which means you understand why people of color keep saying Black lives matter then acknowledge when injustices are systematically being carried out! If you dont then….go scream “Make America Great Again” raise the US flag and keep up the good show of patriotism in the face of civil unrest (shruggs). As for me I know the mentalities of the majority of people walking around are everywhere so I shall stay to myself. Speak positive into existence for those who cant picture it and continue to enjoy this thing called life in my own way that really seems like a dream sometimes. “Row Row Row your boat…gently down the stream. Merrily merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream” A youtuber I recently subscribed to spoke about this…anyway onto the reason you clicked the link and opened this post! I always watch Nerdy Newb’s unboxings on youtube and she introduced us to BoBos (Big ol Box of stuff) subscription service box that caters to the same sorts of geeks and nerds that Lootcrate and others cater to with TWO exceptions! ONE, you answer a survey where you check boxes and answer questions so that your box is more personalized and TWO you will not be automatically charged for the next months box. You pay in August and get your first box shortly after and then nothing unless YOU go to their website and pay for the next box! Win win to me. So you get to see what they are all about with the first box and skip the next month and every other month if you want or pay for the next one. So Im patiently waiting to see if what I wrote in will be used to fill my box. Crossing fingers for DARIAS (old 90’s mtv animated series) merchandise and Bobs Burgers Merchandise! Other than that….ah Im a foodie and always want to make sure there is plenty of healthy food and snacks here for my LO so I bought a mystery box of food/snacks from the Company whose subscription service box I enjoyed but felt offered too little for the price and unsubscribed from called Love With Food! They have July Mystery boxes still available where you pay $19.99 for 25 – 35 items! Free shipping! And before I forget to mention this while here editing as I type this lol I started using this app called Influenster , I log in review items that I have used wheter I loved or hated them. Give input as to how they could have been improved and yea just enjoy giving my two cents about various products. As a gift for reviewing, answering others questions or participating in contests you are sometimes found qualified to recieve complimentary products for testing purposes! So I recieved some samples of Tresemme pre-wash and shampoo yesterday and gave them a try and reviewed them. I also posted a video on youtube that I’ll share the link to here later. If your interested in sharing your honest opinions and possibly receiving some items to try then click the link above! To check out “Love with food” you can check out my earlier posts in snacks/food subscriptions for their link! Until I get these boxes ya’ll stay safe. Stay HUMAN. TREAT PEOPLE THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. Know that everyone is not the same and be the change you want to see. Later ✌
