Finally on Summer Vacation

Friday, 6/28

Well the 2012-13 School year has come to an end. I officially started my 1 month summer vacation yesterday at 1:10pm. I bid my coworker in the office farewell and made my way to my car so fast, you would swear there was smoke trailing behind me.

So to celebrate I went out and about by visiting a few stores out on Manchester, as well as West County Mall. I also made sure to go to my nail shop and get a cute mani and pedi.

 After all that fun I went home and just relaxed.....

Saturday, 6/29

Now today I had it in my mind to go to Forest Park and go to the Saint Louis Zoo to get in a nice walk and enjoy the scenery. But unfortunately when I got out there, I came to realize that there was some HUGE ass event going on out there and parking was just not going to be in the cards for me today. So I just drove around aimlessly and eventually went back home. 

Channeling my inner Audrey Hepburn

So for the past few hours I've been kickin it with my mom and we just got back home from running errands. I'm a tad bit exhausted and have to re-energize before going out this evening. that is of course assuming this rain that just came through eventually stops.

So what are my plans for this July? Well the way I see it, every year I cater 11 months to other people. July is MY time to chillout and do what I want to do. Most likely I will be at home trying my hand at some DIY (Do It Yourself) crafts, working out, doing some cleaning, and anything else I feel like doing.  I still plan on going out every now and then but I'm on a mission to see how much money I can save myself during July. If I really want to eat healthy I don't have to go out all the time, same goes with gas, I don't need to just go out on a whim. I know I will want to go out every now and then, but I just want to see if I can really cut back. Yet another thing I really need to work on this month is just figuring out what I want to do with my life. Hopefully I can take this time and just think about it and actually figure something out.

I'm really looking forward to this time, this MUCH needed time to be on MY clock and not on anyone else's.


Until the next episode....

On my mind

One more day and I am on my summer vacation!!! That's all I can think to myself. One more day and I can just relax and just do nothing. At least for a little while. Time to myself to just chill out for a month and figure out what I want to do. I really have been neglecting my blog for this month. I took pictures of the Susan Komen race and a Natural Hair show that was held in the Delmar Loop a few weeks ago and I STILL haven't uploaded those pics yet. My mind has just been in a severe funk as of lately. Hopefully I can draw myself out of it by July.

Until the next episode....

Midwest Natural Hair Health and Beauty Expo 2013

 So yesterday I went to a Natural Hair show expo held downtown at the St. Louis Gateway Classic. I arrived around 11am and I must say I was really impressed with the spread of the vendors that were there. There were various vendors there with hair products, jewelry, house wares,  and clothing. There was even a spoken word artist who was amazing!!! I ended up buying a few of her books, another lady who made custom wine glasses with black women on them, had to get one of those, and then another vendor I was familiar with from before and I bought a few earrings from her. My girl +Thisha Smith met me there around 11:30am and we enjoyed ourselves until about 1pm. Overall I had a good time;) The expo started yesterday and will last until this evening.
