Journey to Sacramento Fashion Week

The countdown to Sacramento Fashion Week (SacFW) begins. My 16-year-old daughter, Tyra Simone, will be walking the runway modeling designs by Samantha Wall-Laidler and Designer Zenzele Nuru. Partnered with Stylist, MarioB, they are preparing a runway experience to remember.

Today’s Rehearsal

The rehearsal leading up to the show is all about being fitted and styled in flattering custom outfits, practicing model walk and poses to the music, as well as going over the show lineup from beginning to end.Rehearsal was held in room facility on the beautiful campus of California State University Sacramento (Sac State). Being that I completed the last three semesters of my undergraduate studies on this campus, I always look forward to coming back to see the beautiful enhancements.

I’m EXHAUSTED

Confession!!!!

I’m tired y’all. No for real for reeaaalll. Since the middle of December, I’ve been going 100 miles a minute. Between my full time job, running my Destiny Inspired business, raising two girls, managing my oldest daughter’s modeling, hosting events, attending/supporting other events, ghostwriting blogs for others, managing clients and more. Whewwww

Ya girl is TIRED!

I had to share that. I love posting all the great stuff, but I also love the behind the scenes.

Oftentimes people ask me how I do it all since I do way more than what is posted. The answer is that I just get it done BUT this last couple weeks, I am feeling EXHAUSTED. My 43 year old body is like HOLD UP SISTA.

So, I’m hoping my glasses make me look NOT SO EXHAUSTED. lol

This Super Mommy is Super Tired!
I will be scaling back and catching up on my nap times.

My SELF-CARE goals for this week include getting more sleep, enjoy some coloring in a coloring book and treat myself to a bouquet of flowers to celebrate ME just because.

Thank you Lord for some good restful sleep tonight to prepare for my week.

Good night peeps. May you have RESTFUL sleep too.

Are you feeling fatigue and ready to step up your self-care?

Here are a few self-care ideas:

Last week, I treated myself to a 60-minute full body massage and I will do that again soon.
Treat yourself. Love yourself.
