#ShowYouSTL Backstory - Yashica - J.J. Sing Catering

I had the pleasure of first meeting Yashica at an event last July being held at the Urb Arts center. The event was showcasing small business entrepreneurs and Yashica was actually station right behind me. She was setting up her table. I knew she had something special when people were coming through specifically to find her and that was before she was able to get her table finally arranged the way she wanted it.

So I looked behind me and saw that she had desserts in a jar. Now I'm super picky when it comes to food, especially my desserts. My mother is the queen when it comes to food so I was a bit hesitant at first to really look at what she had to offer. But after seeing so many people come through and rave about her sweets I finally had to see what the fan fare was about.

Two weeks after my meeting with Michelle, I was able to meet up with my friend Majic (his nickname) who I have known for quite some time. I was introduced to him by a close friend of mine and we both began taking some masseuse lessons at his old location off of the Riverview Blvd circle. He has since relocated to Cool Valley and his new location which looks absolutely beautiful.

When you walk into the area which is located on the 2nd floor above a barber shop, you are instantly greeted with a spacious kitchen area with a high table off to the right accompanied with two stools. Off to the right is a relaxation room to further relax from your massage as well as two separate massage rooms and also a bathroom with tub and shower area to prepare yourself for your massage. Further down a hallway is a living room area complete with a small bar and extended couches enough for a small gathering. Perfect for some girlfriends to get together and have a relaxing spa day.

#ShowYouSTL Backstory - Aroused by Art

Back in October 2015 I had the pleasure of meeting an amazing artist by the name of Michelle. She is well known for her beautiful paintings and her unique style of photography. I contacted her via Facebook and asked if she would be interested in being a part of my photography project, ShowYouSTL. She was kind enough to accept my request and I met up with her within two weeks. I went to her loft downtown and she happen to drive by while I was waiting on the sidewalk to enter her loft. So I hopped in her car and she parked in the garage.

#ShowYouSTL BackStory- WaxZenSilk Scarves

Scarves from WaxZenSilk

Yesterday I hung out with a former coworker, Jen who has a small business making scarves. The name of her business is Wax Zen Silk Scarf Creations. The style in which she makes her scarves is called batiking. This process uses wax  to make designs with  instruments called tjanting tools which come in different sizes and various styles. She makes her wax designs on blank white silk scarves which are then followed by whichever colors she uses to stain the scarves. Trust me it's not as easy as it sounds especially since I was able to see the process first hand last night. In my opinion it is definitely a tedious process but Jen is such a pro that she can do a scarf within two hours.

No New Resolutions

 So yea, I'm late in saying HAPPY NEW YEAR and all that other pizzazz. A few days before New Years Eve I was wondering to myself what resolutions was I going to make. I then decided I wasn't going to do any because I just seem to disappoint myself every damn year. Do I have goals? Yea I have them but I'm not going to get too crazy with them and drill them into my head. That has been my mistake in the past. Thinking about them over and over again until I was so stressed out when I would fail at them and then feel like a nuclear bomb just went off in my face. Then that would just give me another thing to be depressed about. So I'm going to just try to bring more order to my life and try to give myself a schedule to throughout the week to check in with myself on the things that I want to do.
