Why I Dont Make Resolutions

I don't make resolutions because I don't keep them. That is it!

Thinking back, I have never keep a New Year's Resolution; however, throughout my 20's I have always made them.

Instead of making resolutions, sit and plan for your year.

Map out your major goals and your sub- goals.

Chart how you are going to accomplish these goals.

Actually, get up and work on accomplishing your goals.

Vision board your goals, dreams and aspirations.

Never give up even if you feel like you cannot make it.

Great Hair All Month Long + $500 Gift Card!!!!!!!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TRESemmé. All opinions are 100% mine.
Let me start by saying, for years i was afraid of my hair. This might sound  weird but i kid you not. As a result of my fear, i communicated with my hair through my hairdresser. She was my middleman. Therefore,  I did not wash or style my hair until our next encounter. This however has changed. My hair is no longer a war zone because i have made a conscious decision to make peace (so to speak) with it . With this new found relationship, i have found that my visits to the hairdresser are few and far between. I can proudly say i have mastered how to have great hair all month long. A big part of having great hair is ensuring that your hair is clean and not weighted down. Yet , there are days when you can't stop to wash your hair because of a number of reasons. These reasons could include: busy schedules, numerous appointments/ meetings or the kids are pulling you in all different directions.  Th…

Acceptence (Managing Stress)

Adjusting Your AttitudeHow you think can have a profound effect on your emotional and physical well-being. Each time you think a negative thought about yourself, your body reacts as if it were in the throes of a tension-filled situation. If you see good things about yourself, you are more likely to feel good; the reverse is also true. Eliminate words such as "always," "never," "should," and "must." These are telltale marks of self-defeating thoughts. Stress management strategy: Accept the things you can’t changeSome sources of stress are unavoidable. You can’t prevent or change stressors such as the death of a loved one, a serious illness, or a national recession. In such cases, the best way to cope with stress is to accept things as they are. Acceptance may be difficult, but in the long run, it’s easier than railing against a situation you can’t change.
Don’t try to control the uncontrollable. Many things in life are beyond our control— particula…

Variety is the Spice of Life!!!!!

This post brought to you by Net10. All opinions are 100% mine.
I must say, i thought long and hard about this post before i accept it or even decided to write it. In the end, i thought that my readers needed to know the choices that are available to them. Sometimes, I wish i had the option to choice my cell phone provider. But  the truth is i am stuck. Well the beauty of it is that you don't have to be.

DIY Sundays- Cutting Your Phone Bill

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.
I find that i spend quite a lot on mobile calls. It has got to the point where i have not been in contact with close friends unless they call me. Not only are my friendships dying but also i am losing the comfort of my inner circle.
With this in mind, i thought that many of my readers might be having a similar problem.  That is why i jumped at the opportunity to share what i have learnt about this amazing company called Straight Talk. no they are not paying me to say they are amazing. But just think about it. Any company that offers products and services for the budget conscious person is definitely amazing in my book. 
Here are the reasons why i am impressed:
 cell phone bills are cut in halfthere are no contracts Great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity.Hook, line and sinker Straight Talk only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsu…

The Journey Continues!!!!!

Firstly, Somehow i feel like i have been saying this quite a lot but nonetheless i will say it again. I have not given up on blogging and sorry that i have been M.I.A. There are days when i want to blog so much it hurts. But, I am finding it hard to pencil in blog time on my busy schedule. I would like to think that this situation is a work in progress. I am sure, you will be tired of seeing me pretty soon. Just to say however, that I am currently working on some personal projects and i look forward to sharing them with you soon.

Secondly, I know that for my United States readers, especially, you are preparing for fall and then winter. But, i just wanted to know if the climate has changed for you as yet. I swear that the sun is literally sitting on Jamaica.The days are blazing hot! I know that the summer equinox was on the 21 of September and therefore summer has officially ended. However, i am still waiting for summer to go to sleep or at least take a nap; so i can get a breath of air…

Update + Awards

So i have been off the grid for a while. A number of things has happened and a lot has changed. So, here are my updates.

I wont say a lot because every time i think of September 11 i get very emotional. But what i will say is let us never forget.

I mentioned in a previous post that my home was burglarized. I am happy to say that my hangbag was returned with the papers to the car and all.  The only thing that was missing from my bag was my MP4. I am feeling very blessed.

I am back at work with my kids. By now most of you might have guessed that i am a teacher. One of the reasons, why i have been away is that the new school year started September 5. I have been busy  in one meeting or another for the last two weeks. It's a lot of work, my average class is 45 to 46 students. I most say i am finally getting use to the idea. It's crazy i know but it works somehow.

While i was here and away i awarded a couple of blog awards by my follow bloggers. I must say that w…
