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.


Bout that Insta-life...

Hey peeps!! Long time no see! Believe me, I've been around. Reading, lurking, sporadically commenting and such. I hope you all have been well.

Since my camera has been busted, I haven't been much for taking blog pics. Mostly, I've been around and about on Twitter and Instagram.

In this post I have a few pics of outfits, shoes, and random goings on that I've recently captured. Be forewarned that it's quite picture heavy. If you kick it with me on Twitter and Instagram, then these pics are nothing new to you. If you don't, feel free to stop on by and chat me up! I'm really hoping that "Santa" is able to help a sista out with a new camera... Seeing as how I've been a really good girl and all. ;)

Until next time...

Moccasins that I LOVE so much

Been working on my fitness. Those inches tell the tale.

Still getting used to, and loving my #naturalhair

Hey peeps!! I hope you're having a great start of the week!! For me, it was a very busy, yet fulfilling day. I am an eMentor (mentor over email) to a high-school student, and I got to meet her today. She came to my office for half the day to participate in a job-shadowing opportunity. While it was an awesome experience for she and I both, I had to basically cram a full day of work into 4 hours once the job-shadowing was over. It was at that moment that the wheels flew off of my day! I finally gained control of everything before it was time for me to leave. Whew! I'm assuming tomorrow will be better.

Anyhoo, on to the OOTD…

So, here's the deal. I can't stop wearing stripes. No matter how hard I try to steer clear of them while shopping, they just keep callin me **insert Pookie voice from New Jack City**!

Chris Rock as Pookie

 This skirt was no exception. I picked it up from the Old Navy Outlet for the lovely price of $8.73 a piece! When I saw that the clearance price was $12.49 + an extra 30% off, I realized that there were 2 other skirts (plus a blazer) that NEEDED to come home with me. Ha!

The black and white striped skirt just begs to be paired with my leopard shoes. I love them together.

I pinned one side of my hair just to see if I would like it… and I do! I think, I'm getting the hang of this whole natural thing. lol I've been browsing Youtube looking for more styles that fit with my length. If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments section, or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook, and now Instagram!!!

Until next time...

T-Shirt - Dots
Skirt - Old Navy
Shoes - Target



Happy Sunday peeps!! I know you've already done this, but for those of you who've been under a rock all day… Turn your clocks back. Ha! That "extra" hour this morning felt so good. I hope you all had a great weekend. I can't believe that it's November! Thanksgiving is coming, and I'm ready for all of the good food, folks and fun that comes along with it. #greedy

The title of this post comes from how I've been seeing myself lately. Thanks to a few better choices in my eating habits, and cardio 4-5 times a week, I am at the lowest weight that I've been in YEARS. Thanks to my personal training sessions every Saturday, I'm the strongest that I've ever been. My blood pressure is great, and my clothes fit awesome. Sooooo, why on earth have I been feeling bigger than ever lately?? My perception of how I look differs from day to day no matter what the scale says. My eyes somehow disconnect from what my brain knows to be true. It so weird when that happens.

Anyhoo, today was not one of those days. Before Fall began, I made a personal goal for myself to wear my cutoff shorts and "Faller-ize" them with a sweater and tights. Personal goal complete. The houndstooth tights that I'm wearing, I originally vowed not to wear again (see old post here). Well, I had a change of heart. I broke those babies out and wore them with no reservations.

Still no camera, but I'm trying to make the pics as clear as possible. Thanks for hanging in there with a sista =D

Until next time…
