Turn Off Your Cell Phone!


I know many of us have run across a relatively rude person talking loudly on a cell phone in the bank or office. I came across this useful list of proper cell phone etiquette.  Enjoy!

When to turn your cell phone off… In your professional life. Whether you are a full-time student, stay-at-home parent, working your first job or a seasoned professional, turn off your cell phone:
• During class
• While attending work or parent-teacher conferences
• During a job interview
• When on a work deadline In your family life. Both family milestones and certain everyday moments might require you to unplug.
 Turn off your cell phone:
• In places of worship
• In hospitals (especially during a birth!)
• During court sessions
• At weddings
• While trying out a complicated new recipe, and later at the dinner table
• At funerals At special events, social gatherings or classes. Both you and your fellow patrons will enjoy yourselves more if you turn off your cell phone:
• At movie theaters, plays, poetry readings, choral recitals, concerts
• In museums and libraries
• During dance, yoga or aerobics class While out and about. Focus on your errands and turn off your cell phone:
• At the ATM, in checkout lines, or when approaching anyone in customer service • In public bathrooms
• In bank and fast food drive-throughs, or at school pickup lines
• While pumping gas or taking public transportation

Where do you turn off your phone?

Peace in the New Year!


I am feeling so blessed to be able to see a New Year. It is something about the New Year that makes you want to start fresh, leave the drama in the past and step with a renewed vigor and excitement. I hear many say they don’t make New Year resolutions and I understand why. I think throughout 2013 I made several resolutions lol. Some I followed through with and some I never quit saw all the way through. For 2014 I have several goals. I’ll check in 2015 be it the will of God with my progress.

In 2014 I’m praying for God’s peace. This is a tumultuous time in the world and so much is at stake. It’s a blessing to be living in this day and age. My last lengthy phone convo in 2013 left me very introspective and affirmed. I have been studying my life and the events that have happened. A lot has seemed coincidental and some seem like they are leading up to a very well calculated purpose. However this year may present itself--I’m ready! I know you are too. How can we not be? We have God’s grace and divine favor and insurmountable opportunity. Let’s live a life of Purpose!

Peace and Blessings!

6 Month Length Check & Trim

So I have been chemical free since day one. But recently I have left most of the heat alone. After about 6 months of being heat free I blow dried and pressed. I think I have around 2 inches of growth! :)
