  • Many Expensive Christmas Toys will be Broken on Christmas Day. Some will be Broken in the following days.⁣
⁣
There are some Educational Tools available. ⁣
⁣
Only thing, they not as shiny & pretty as the expensive toys. Therefore, they don't make great gifts for Likes & Shares on Social Media. ⁣
⁣
As a Result, June Bug will not learn his Math better for the 2nd half of the school year or get a Better Grip on Reading Comprehension like he could have from Using The Cheap Educational Gifts.⁣
⁣
June Bug lost out to Expensive Trivial Gifts.⁣
⁣
Poor June Bug. ⁣

  • 4th quater is upon us. Took me a while to understand that my business should be broken up into quarters. This way I can see my progress. BUT that's okay I figured it out. Now I am ready and going hard this quarter. ⁣

Part of embracing who you are is understanding when you are growing through learning. And not being afraid to share that with the world.⁣

  • Hot curl summer🔥...or not? 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve made a vow to myself to start rocking my natural curls more. If you look up “lazy natural” in the dictionary you will probably see my picture. 😂💀 I absolutely dread doing my hair. 😑🙄 But I’m not up for frizzy, bushy hair ! 🙅🏽‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been struggling with definition lately no matter how long I leave my style in or how much product I use! To all my naturalistas, any product recommendations? Please comment some products you love and any tips below! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sincerely, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a LAZY natural 😩😩💜🌻✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"What's Up w/ The DMX Challenge?"
If there's anything that social media is good for, it's creating a fun viral challenge, and the latest one that the internet has gotten its hands on is making me want to book a hair appointment right this second. The challenge in question is called the #DMXCHALLENGE — yes, that @dmx — and it's just proof that #blackwomen are masters at switching up their hair and pulling off every length, color, texture, and style under the sun.
•
•
•
Set to DMX's song "What These B*tches Want,"during which he calls out the names of 46 different women in a row in the second verse, the challenge sees users sharing videos of themselves sporting a multitude of hairstyles & styles synced to the rapper's roll call. It's honestly a delight to watch so many women pull off so many different looks, and it's hard to not get sucked into an unproductive rabbit hole when looking into the hashtag.
•
•
•
It's worth noting that "What These B*tches Want" is a raunchy number, to say the least. The song itself is demeaning to women, and the specific lyrics that these videos are set to essentially detail the rapper's sexual conquests. With that said, those who are participating in the challenge are spinning the narrative from NEGATIVE to EMPOWERING, using it as a way to highlight the beauty of black women who frequently switch hairstyles & styles.

  • Laughter is Good for the Soul 
The D Word...Discipline
I’m the person that buys a meal and eats half my food in the car before I get home. #guilty This usually happens because I’m hungry and I get impatient. However, I know that somethings are better with a little patience and discipline. #delayedgratification
So I honestly don’t believe that anyone was born with discipline or if they are kudos to them because I wasnt gifted with that ability.
Define it for Me me Boo…I’m glad you asked.
Discipline
Webster defines it as training to act in accordance with rules and activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill
Discipline is something that we have to continuously practice over and over again. For example, I have to make a conscious effort that I won’t indulge in fried foods, junk food and will exercise and make healthier eating choices. During the week my eating habits are usually good because I meal prep, but on the weekends I sometimes hit the struggle bus from brunching or sugar cravings.
The thing to remember is you will have days in which you may not make the best choices, but get up and try again!

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7 NLT

  • It’s amazing how free you feel when you stop overthinking. I caught myself rewriting a caption for this post at least 3 times. Trying to explain my week hiatus, what I was doing, etc until I realized.... I love y’all but I ain’t gotta explain myself to not a damn soul 😂I was gone because I was tiiied boss. I made a promise to myself that I would always do what’s best for ME and I’m sticking to it 💪🏽

  • Hey girl hey!!! 🙋🏾‍♀️ We’ve got some new friends & I thought it would be a great time to say hello!!✨
.
I am Alaina Mayes! And, I’m going to give you a quick run down of who I am:
✅36
✅divorced
✅single mama of 3 girls (twins +1)
✅believer, Bible reader, Jesus lover
✅writer + blogger (for hire, btw😘)
✅artistic (photography + chalkboards)
✅health + wellness advocate
✅podcast interviewee
.
I’m an entire ball of contradictions as I love freedom + boundaries, safety & dwelling outside of my comfort zone,  routine + new things.....seeing both sides, salads + fruit & burgers, fries, & glasses filled with a bubbly Rosé or a smooth brown. But, water + supplementing rules. 💪🏾
•
My life flipped upside down 5 years ago. Ever since then I have evolved, learned who I am and what I wanted/needed... My story isn’t just for me, it’s for you + your friend. It’s to show us all that while things “may be unlikely, they aren’t impossible” & that you can truly do the hardest, most painful, and exhausting thing everyday.
.
That thing you’re afraid of doing, isn’t your obstacle... how you think of it is. Who you believe you are is what’s holding you back. Health struggles + our history make it seem impossible. But, it’s not. Things change every day!

  • "Agile, Mobile, Hostile"--FAMU Rattlers, Coach Jake Gaither--The Legend⁣
⁣
"Agile, Mobile, Hostile" is now available as an e-book on Amazon. ⁣
⁣
* Also, visit http://www.gaitherbiography.com/ to learn more about the book or to order a paperback copy. #GaitherBiography⁣
⁣
Florida A&M University Legendary Football 🏈 Coach⁣
------⁣
* I first read the book 📗 in 1994. ⁣
⁣
I have read it 2 more times since then. I'm going to buy it again in Ebook. So I will have it on my Kindle. I got a whole Library full of books on my Kindle. I can't walk around with a bunch of books in my backpack. ⁣
⁣
This A Must Read Book for Coaches & FAMU Rattlers. Should be required reading for FAMU Rattlers. 100 copies should be in the University Library. ⁣
⁣
I used to teach GED students nobody in the city could do anything with Right at the Bottom of the Hill on FAMU's Campus. GED Program. The 2 story building. Old Cedar Program Building/Project Sure--Dropouts, Gang Members, Youth that just got out of juvenile home, boot camps, etc. ⁣
⁣
This one of the books I would run off chapters. We used to get in half circle & students read & discussed. ⁣
⁣
Other books, Malcolm X, Maya Angelou, Marcus Garvey, Lyrics to MC's..Nas, Outkast, KRS-1, Rakim, & many others. Breaking down metaphors to literal meaning.⁣
⁣
A lot of people don't know that Coach Gaither used to put on Coaching Workshops all around the Country in the Off Season. Legendary Coaches used to come to his Coaching Workshops. And he was always in Demand. Coach Paul Bear Bryant of Alabama, Bobby Bowden, & many D-1 school coaches used to come to his workshops. Coach Gaither was an awesome motivator. Smart as all out get down, funny, stern, a strategist of football, psychologist in bringing out the best in his players & all those he came into contact with. ⁣

  • It’s amazing how free you feel when you stop overthinking. I caught myself rewriting a caption for this post at least 3 times. Trying to explain my week hiatus, what I was doing, etc until I realized.... I love y’all but I ain’t gotta explain myself to not a damn soul 😂I was gone because I was tiiied boss. I made a promise to myself that I would always do what’s best for ME and I’m sticking to it 💪🏽

  • Hey girl hey!!! 🙋🏾‍♀️ We’ve got some new friends & I thought it would be a great time to say hello!!✨
.
I am Alaina Mayes! And, I’m going to give you a quick run down of who I am:
✅36
✅divorced
✅single mama of 3 girls (twins +1)
✅believer, Bible reader, Jesus lover
✅writer + blogger (for hire, btw😘)
✅artistic (photography + chalkboards)
✅health + wellness advocate
✅podcast interviewee
.
I’m an entire ball of contradictions as I love freedom + boundaries, safety & dwelling outside of my comfort zone,  routine + new things.....seeing both sides, salads + fruit & burgers, fries, & glasses filled with a bubbly Rosé or a smooth brown. But, water + supplementing rules. 💪🏾
•
My life flipped upside down 5 years ago. Ever since then I have evolved, learned who I am and what I wanted/needed... My story isn’t just for me, it’s for you + your friend. It’s to show us all that while things “may be unlikely, they aren’t impossible” & that you can truly do the hardest, most painful, and exhausting thing everyday.
.
That thing you’re afraid of doing, isn’t your obstacle... how you think of it is. Who you believe you are is what’s holding you back. Health struggles + our history make it seem impossible. But, it’s not. Things change every day!

Hey girl hey! I’m Alaina.... l can, you can. Let’s do this together! 👊🏾💥
