Hello everyone 😙
Sooooooo, body image is so important to EVERYONE! Including myself! I aint even gonna lie. But to me its a problem when folks are only unhappy with their outer apperance because they compare themselves to airbrushed, cosmetic surgery and unhealthy celebrities or even non celebrities. Thats a BIG problem to me. I once weighed 160 and at that weight I wanted to wear crop tops because I wanted to showcase my results of hardwork and pierced my belly. I felt healhty and accomplished that I had lost so much weight as I intended to. Now pushing 230 wheter I look it or not to others I feel good but I know I would feel better being able to wear things only presented or created for smaller sizes. And in all honesty I just want to go shopping anywhere and thats possible for smaller sized individuals. And so due to my love of fashion in a sense and to be my healthiest might I add I try my best to be conscious of how much I consume and what! Thats just me. I know how I can lose weight quickly (working out 4x a week) or slowly (eating less and healthier ). Never do I look at other women and think Im ugly because I’m not their size. I love myself fat or skinny. I look good either size. One is more obviously acceptable but that is not my motivation to lose weight or my concern. I dont compare myself to them and they are not my role models or ideal image of Beauty. We all look good at different sizes in my opinion and we all look good at different sizes to others. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I shared the pic an instagramer shared because it was very true of what most of us have thought at one point in our life man, woman or child. It cracked me up and made me smile because it is life. Anyway, I hope everyone reading stops feeling bad about their size or comparing themselves to others. The entertainment world is just that ENTERTAINMENT. And women are objectified non stop. And so are men on some level. We all need to be mindful of the younger generation that watches all the entertainment, reads the magazines and music videos that depict one type of woman and do our part to embrace reality. Off my soapbox. Write you later ✌

Hello to those who clicked my link to see if I posted anything as of recently and thank you XoXo! This past week has been full of surprises to say the least but I shall save the VERY personal stories for when I blow up and start vlogging and etc lol. Oh how the times have changed lol anyway for now I will stick to the outer layers of my life and the things or people in it that make it worth wild! Shout out to my mom, her Uncle (my great Uncle) and Aunt in Harlem who may read this one day. I love you all very much. Shout out to all the GOOD and CARING Teachers, Counselors, Social Workers and Principles that still exist. The communities of people everywhere and I thank you for your contributions! I thank the creator daily for the gift of opening my eyes and having food, clothes, shelter, my loved ones and for being in my right mind…… (Takes a deep breath) Now, onto what has lifted my spirits in such trying times. As you may have noticed, espeacially if you follow me on instagram is that I’am a huge geek! I call myself the “well rounded geek of 2016″….its okay go ahead and laugh! Well, I enjoy watching various youtubers do their unboxings of subscription box/bag services they utilize and always discover something new. This week I learned of the Super Geek Box! And their theme for March was LIGHTENING! They gave a cute talking sonic plush keychain, an awesone blue t-shirt that featured a husky Sonic sitting next to a bowl of onion rings and holding a onion ring as the words above him read “Hoard of the Rings” lol. There was some other stuff that Im sure everyone enjoyed getting like the poster that showed a dragon ball Z character vs superman and…well I cannot the recall the rest because the tee and plush stole the show for me! I swear I was so saddened to just learn of this box as it is now sold out 😢. I thought I had a handle on the various boxes of this sort and their themes but I was wrong. You win some and you lose some (Shruggs) Meanwhile, I was pleasantly pleased with my Beauty Bags both Lipmonthly and Ipsy. My anime box from Lootcrate was a eeehhhhh yes I loved it because of the RWBY shirt, Manga and keychain but that was it. Im of age and all but would have loved a coffee mug vs the shot glasses. Thats just me. Check out Lootcrate for yourself! Other than my subscription uplift moments I get so much joy from cooking and playing with my make up collection. Im sort of a perfectionist or rather anal so practice makes perfect! My lil one and his cousins have taught me so much about myself this week as children are so observant and can be very optimistic. They were one of the biggest up lifting mechanisms thus far. Life is so interesting. Many cannot see themselves but regardless they are being seen. That makes everything worth wild as in life you go through things that allow you to see just who and how many individuals are really great human beings. Anyway….I hope those still reading have something or someone (s) that give them life everyday. And when I recieve some other subscription goodies I decided to try out thanks to good ole coupon codes I will be sure to talk about them and post pics. Until next time✌

So, it’s Thursday and here in NYC it feels like summer today with a High of 70 degrees. Hummers are rolling down streets, Hoodies are the new outerwear preference and eggs are out on lawns in abundance as Easter creeps up on us! My type of atmosphere honestly, goodbye Uggs and Bearpaws hello white sneakers! Now, the only thing that would make my day and many others would be to recieve our March Ipsy bags! As well as the March Lipmonthly bags! Both Beauty subscriptions kick ass and are affordable. Ipsy is $10.89 a month and Lipmonthly is $12.95 a month. You receive 4 to 5 sample or full size beauty products every month. I personally have been introduced to brands I never ever heard of or feel I would have ever tried so I appreaciate these two companies. Last month Lip Monthly sent out some lip and cheeck tints that were not tested on Animals, free of so many things people look to find excluded in their cosmetics these days and vegan. These items were very different and nice to recieve and try! When I get the extra time I will definately edit this and be more specific as to what the products were and what they did not have. For now take a look at some of the pics…and if you are interested then feel free to click my referral links or copy and paste to sign up. I dont get paid for sharing my links but recieve points towards free additional products or a possible free bag as does EVERY Subscribed member who shares their personal referral link! Just click and enjoy! Ipsy and Lipmonthly

Lastly, the Prim Botanicals lip & cheek glow…
My name is Tiesha, that’s 3 syllables 😁 by the way (Ti-e-sha) but you can call me Tie! It has been a dream of mine to be able to write about what I love and ….what I don’t love (hate is such a strong word) and so here I’am finally. It only took me about $70 and 6 hours of researching which web host I would sign up with but I made it😭😪😆 Now, what will I be sharing you might be wondering well here goes….EVERYTHING! Because life is far from black and white and BELIEVE ME I thought of starting a blog where I only talked about the Beauty and Geek box Subscription services I enjoy. Or the Avon products I sell but I’m into so much more like cooking/baking and educating the younger generations of blacks on who paved the way for me and them. I’m into social events whether they be good or bad (Shruggs). Kickrocs and yes I misspelled it on purpose, has always been my choice of words towards those with ignorance as their first language and my tag name elsewhere. So that is how the name of my sweet little blog and etc was selected. I hope all of you reading are as open minded and compassionate as I’am so that you will enjoy your visit. But if Not….well 😏
