Broken Hearts can be Mended

Getting over a break up is never easy, trust me I know because I'm going through it right now, it's actually kind of hard to pick yourself up when all you can think about is the other person,but I believe that time heals all things. had a list of 10 ways to get over a breakup and here are my top 5 from that list

1.) Avoid the Friend Zone - when it’s over, it’s over! There is no such thing as being friends with your ex right away. In time, you can be friends but take the time you need to heal! No phone calls, no random late night sleepovers because “I miss you.” Stay strong and avoid contact for at least 90 days!

2.) Refrain from Random Sex - finding a “jump-off” or a void filler is nothing more than quick fix that doesn’t help you in the grand scheme of things. Furthermore, why pass the pain that you’re feeling on to someone else? Nobody wins. Take the time you need to heal, jumping into a fling immediately after a bre akup is not healthy and likely ends up being a waste of time.

3.) Switch It Up - Go through your house and rearrange your furniture, especially in the bedroom. Move your bed to another corner or switch up the entire layout of your living room! You can take it a step further and paint a room or two a different color. This helps refresh your attitude and enhances the desire to turn a new leaf!

4.) Do You - after a breakup it’s so easy to get lost in your sadness and let yourself go. Just because you no longer have a girlfriend don’t veg on the PS2, drink heavily and fail to get your line-up. Ladies, don’t let your nails and toes suffer and develop a habit of eating ice cream in the bed every night! Go to the barber! Go to the salon! Go get your mani/pedi! Hit the gym harder! Be better, not bitter!

5.) Surround Yourself with Love - there are people that love you regardless of your hardships. So don’t be too proud to reach out to them and let them know you need them. If it’s your siblings, other family members or your best friend you can never have enough support through your transition.

Hopefully these 5 things will help you start to heal!! :0)

Inside my Eclectic Mind

My thoughts are pretty eclectic and hopefully my future home can represent that. Check out these pics I found and are great inspiration

The Final Goodbye

As the sounds of Marsha Ambrousious "Far Away" plays in the background I think about you, but now when I think about you my confusion,uncertainty and thoughts of you are no longer whether you’re being faithful or what’s the true story with you and your best friend, instead I wonder how you’re doing and if you’re thinking about me to? I never wanted you to change things I just wanted you to understand where I was emotionally and was hoping that with me being open and honest enough to tell you, that you would accept that that’s where I was, and know that I was willing to understand and know that it would take time.

Relationships are not easy but I’ve learned that both people have to be accepting of the good, the bad, and indifferent of each other in order for it to work.
I’ll miss the walks on the Levee. Whether you know it or not my first time on Bourbon was with you (smile) and it’s something I’ll never forget. The walk on Magazine, or the rides around the city.

Whenever I see the city skyline I won’t be able to help but think about you. I’ll miss the only other relationship that I would allow you to have and that was the one with my hair (smile) Of course I’ll miss captain hook; I’ll miss the laughs and trips to popeyes. O and by the way I still have the plant you gave me, it’s not dead yet aren’t you proud of me? (Smile) but most of all I’ll miss YOU!

If you ever need me I'm always here please remember I'm never far away. Know that I still love you because my love is unconditional and when you love unconditional you never stop loving, Flaws and ALL.

Good Luck with everything!

Cake Please!

So, if you love cake as much as I do, your going to love this idea. I saw this recipe on another bloggers page and had to share it with my followers, so here you go hope you enjoy:

• Vegetable shortening
• 3 cups all-purpose flour
• 4 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
• 2 1/3 cups sugar
• 5 large egg whites, room temperature
• 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
• 1 1/2 cups milk, room temperature
• Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple gel food coloring

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush six 9-inch-round cake pans (or as many 9-inch cake pans as you have, reusing them as necessary) with shortening. Line bottom of each cake pan with parchment paper; brush again and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar. Slowly add egg whites and mix until well combined. Add vanilla and mix until fully incorporated. Add flour mixture and milk in two alternating additions, beginning with the flour and ending with the milk. Mix until well combined.

3. Divide batter evenly between six medium bowls. Add enough of each color of food coloring to each bowl, whisking, until desired shade is reached. Transfer each color to an individual cake pan. Transfer to oven and bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of each cake comes out clean, about 15 minutes (working in batches if necessary).

4. Remove cakes from oven and transfer to a wire rack; let cool for 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto a wire rack; re-invert and let cool completely.

5. Using a serrated knife, trim tops of cakes to make level. Place four strips of parchment paper around perimeter of a serving plate or lazy Susan. Place the purple layer on the cake plate. Spread a scant 1 cup buttercream filling over the first layer with a small offset spatula so it extends just beyond edges. Repeat process with blue, green, yellow, and orange layers.

6. Place the remaining red layer on top, bottom-side up. Gently sweep away any loose crumbs with a pastry brush. Using an offset spatula, cover the top and sides with a thin layer of frosting (also use any of the excess frosting visible between the layers). Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.

7. Using an offset spatula, cover cake again with remaining frosting

So, I was doing something I do often, THINKING

Thinking about my relationship and I had this amazing epiphany.
The say....“Love is a action word”....TRUE!, but to know what Love is and to be in a position to give Love (which is ultimately putting it into action) you REALLY have to surrender to all of your fears and any insecurities you may be holding on to, and give the other person permission to see who you organically are.

The more and more I think about it I realize how serious it is and it makes me wonder how many people really understand that; however it’s not easy to allow yourself to be so transparent and venerable, well at least not for me. Giving someone ALL of me and not knowing the outcome is scary. So question…. How do you let go in order to experience something that could be sooo amazing?

Exactly how do you “Love without fear? Trust without question. Need without demand. Want without restriction and Desire without inhibition?”
