About Me

My photo
Hi! I'm Shanticka. My blog is about any and everything that I want it to be. Me, my family, work, personal style, friends, etc. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy getting to know me. Live, in living color.


I'm a Versatile Blogger... and so are YOU

Happy Humpday!!

I've had the pleasure to be listed as a Versatile Blogger by two very lovely blogger buddies. The first one came from the fabulously fashionable Shay over at A Thick Girls Closet. Shay is super sweet and I adore her style. She's fearless in fashion and I love that about her. Take a moment to check her out if you haven't already.

The second mention came from The Notorious Zag from Bigg Badd Wolf. When I tell you this lady doesn't take any mess, I mean she don't take NO mess. She's a no nonsense type of woman, and at the same time, she is super sweet. Her style is perfect for a mom on the go... like me! I always look forward to her posts. =D

Thank you ladies!!

You all know quite a bit about me by now (assuming you read my ramblings), but I have to name 7 random things about myself and nominate other bloggers for the award. 

1. I'm a baller on a budget. I love to look cute & stylish, but you will most likely find me at a clearance rack, or an outlet, or at an outlet AT a clearance rack.

2. I haven't had a relaxer in over 8 months. Although I'm proud of myself for this, I'm taking it month by month y'all.

3. I blind as a bat!... no really... I can't see without my glasses.

4. I don't use the home-row keys to type. My hands are all over the place as I type right now! lol

5. I hate going to the dentist. 

6. I can't stand Snoop Dog. Not DoggyStyle Snoop... but, Sensual Seduction Snoop. Ugh!

7. I love love. Just the thought of couples being genuinely in love makes my heart smile.

Sharing the love is something that I love doing. So please... if you're a follower of mine and you have a blog, take this award. And don't forget to tell'em Ticka gave it to ya! =D 

Yea, I cheated! So what! Ha!

Until next time... Here's the outfit that I wore to work today. I'm linking up over at A Little Bit of Lacquer for the Work It Wednesday series. You should too!! =D

Lifting my foot and trying not to fall. 


  1. Cute as always! I love the part where you're blind as a bat...I'm blind as a bat when the sun goes down. Then I have to put on the glasses...lol
    btw...thanks for participating on my 1st link up!

    1. Thanks Corie!! Im glad Im not the only one who cant see! Gurl these glasses never come off, lol. I love link ups & yours is a great idea!

  2. A fellow Velma in the building! I have to put my glasses in a specific place at night so I can find them in the morning without blindly rooting around for them. Your hair be looking good too, life is so much easier without worrying about a relaxer in my opinion. I haven't had a relaxer since the summer of 2004, and haven't thought twice about it. I'm loving the white pants, its something so crisp and chic about a good pair of nice, bright, and white bottoms: especially if you can make it through the day without getting anything on them. Thanks again for the shout out Ticka, xoxoxo

    1. Ha! I like being dubbed a "Velma"! I'm gonna have to use that one! Thanks again for giving me the award. :)

  3. Congrats:-) Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  4. I just found your blog and I think it is amazing.I am following you now,under name Lilie Marlen,but I don't use any photos so I will be last one on your follower list.I will be honored if you come visit my blog and follow it if you like it Have a nice day

  5. Cute look! I'm going on 14 months without a relaxer on June 1st. So proud of me. Now I need to get brave enough to take out this weave. My hair is really long so much transition period is equally long. #CreamyCrackAddictNoMore

  6. Congrats on your award! You look cute, I love your jacket! Kiah

  7. Congrats on your award sweetie! I love the denim jacket. Very cute:-) I hate going to the dentist too and I really should be wearing my glasses more often. I absolutely have to wear them to read. I am all about the clearance rack too!

  8. Congratulations on your award, Ticka! You deserve it! And can I just say I haven't had a relaxer in 4 months and it's driving me crazy? I might just give in this week. *Sigh*

    I'm loving those pants too, btw :)

  9. I too am a glasses/contacts aficionado...They are part of my 30s look. I actually Loled at the Snoop Dogg comment...
