Quote to Live By!!!!!!!!!!

This is so true. I have tough skin and I am a resilient chick. I am also a go getter. Any person that has hurt me has only helped push me closer to my destiny. So muchos gracias :)

My Redeemer Lives !

 As I write this post my eyes are filled with tears. To say that he has shown me so much good in my life is truly an understatement. About five years ago I started doing these prayer walks with my mother. After school we would walk to  my former high school and back. It was great exercise, but most importantly it allowed me to grow in the Lord. I remember one day on the walk I broke down and spoke to God. I said to him, " I have never had the spotlight on me, please set me on high." Today I am graduating a year early from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science pre-law and a specialization in Environmental Studies. I am also attending Vermont law school in the fall ( the number one school in the nation for environmental law).  In addition to that I have been to every continent (except Asia) including Antarctica! I have also been on national television twice and have met many people that I could have only dreamed of meeting when I was younger.  I am not ashamed to say that my redeemer lives because he has ALWAYS been on my side. When I wasn't considered pretty enough, God saw beauty in me. When I wasn't considered smart, God graciously filled me with his wisdom. When there seemed like no way, God showed me favor and made a way. My redeemer lives !

Life Tips: Your Perfect Imperfections

 I feel like sharing my story with you guys. I was always very hard on myself growing up. There were a lot of things that I  did not like about myself. As if that was hard enough, it didn't help that there were judgmental people that would point them out to me. I had to learn to love myself for who I am ( flat big feet and all lol ) . I also had to learn to stop comparing myself to people at school, on television, and in magazines. I mean , sure there are many beautiful girls out there, but I know I am beautiful as well in a way that is unique to me. This was not an easy process, it took time. I challenge you  all to make a list of your imperfections and then try to find something good about that imperfection. Do this till your "imperfection" turns into a "perfection" in your eyes. Remember you are beautifully and wonderfully made.

Coachella Survival Guide ?

I put up a post earlier that gave an outfit suggestion for Coachella (http://kaykaysway.blogspot.com/2013/03/coachella-outfit.html) . Andreas Choice how to have fun at the Coachella music festival .






Change of Plans ..... :)

LOL! So,  before I was super excited to do ombre. Now I have decided that I won't do it anymore. I did a quick strand test today and found that my hair didn't really take well to ombre so I decided to just forget it. Also, since it is the summer my hair should lighten naturally.




Just sticking to this hairstyle with out the ombre ;)

Life Update: Graduation Reception at Cowles House

Hey guys! So, by now you all know that I am graduating this  spring and if you are just tuning into my blog ( welcome :P ) well now you know. I was super excited today because I got an email that said that I was invited to the graduation reception at the Cowles House on April 29th. I attend Michigan State University and the Cowles House was built in 1857 and is used to house the presidents of  the university ( although it is not mandatory that they live in the house). The invite said that we should dress in business casual attire. Hmmmmmm what should I wear? I was thinking of  wearing: a black dress with a red belt, striped blue button down shirt with black pants, or maybe a white top with black pants ( see the picture of Kate Moss below). Any way I am so excited, and the count down begins !

Kordell Stewart and Porsha Williams


Hey! So, I love to watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I was so surprised when I heard that Porsha Williams and her husband, Kordell Stewart, were getting a divorce.  On the show Porsha is portrayed as having a charmed life, but that was just an illusion. As the show progressed the smoke and mirrors faded away and I began to see the relationship for what it was.Kordell is controlling. The only reason he is married her is because he wanted a ditzy girl to control . Who does he think he is dictating to Porsha that she cannot have a career and a child? This is 2013! I also never liked how he made her check in with him and would  treat her like a child.

 I have said in my previous post (http://kaykaysway.blogspot.com/2013/02/life-tips.html ) that two wholes make a relationship. You need to be 100 percent stable before getting into a relationship. Porsha was too dependent on Kordell and Kordell was too insecure. An insecure man will fish out a dependent girl from a mile away. He will incite her with dresses, a fancy house, luxury sports cars, and maybe even a yacht.He will tell her not to sign that prenuptial agreement because he loves her so much and cannot live without her. Once she is in the palm of his hand , he will " show her pepper" . Listen up ladies.  Do not put your finances or your life in a man's  hand. You are a queen and you deserve to be treated as such. Remember it is better to be happy alone than to be miserable with someone else.

Post Worth Reading

I saw a lot of people sharing this post on Facebook. I am a strong believer in women's rights. Therefore, I thought that this was a beautiful post to encourage a lot of young women to not base their lives on the double standard that society imposes on them.

Pretty Little Liars : A Dangerous Game ( Season 3 Episode 24 )







So this season finale was definitely worth the wait. We find out the Spencer is not as loony as she seems. She joined the "A" team in order to get insider information. We also discover that Toby is not dead and joined the " A" team for the same reasons as Spencer did. Emily, Aria, Hanna, and Spencer, and Toby team up to find out who "Red Coat" is. When they get to the location, Emily, Aria,  Hanna, and Mona get trapped in a burning house and "Red Coat" who is really Allison saves them. This is really crazy. Wasn't Allison dead? Well,  apparently not. Also, we learned that Mona had the same motives as the rest of the girls, I guess she wasn't that bad. Lastly, A pulls Officer Wilden's car out from the the lake. As the video is playing in the car the girls see that Jenna and Shandra know Officer Wilden and even help him after he gets hit by the car? What????? I am so confused, but I will for sure be watching next season!!!!!!!!

Eat Your Way to Clear Skin

Model Karrueche Tran has great skin!

Lose the processed carbs
  • Simple carbohydrates – like white bread, pasta, biscuits and sweets are bad for your skin 
  •  A study showed that switching the white stuff for wholegrains led to fewer pimples.
  •  Plus, other research found that losing the carbs meant 28 per cent fewer blackheads and whiteheads, and 71 percent fewer cystic pimples, after 10 weeks.
  • reduce sugary treats 
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine 

Cut down on dairy

  • One large study showed women who drank the most milk were 44 percent more likely to have severe acne than women who drank no milk.
  • There are other alternatives like almond milk 

Load up on fruit & veg

  • One study found that people who ate six servings of fresh produce every day for six weeks were rated as more attractive than those who ate less fruit and vegetables.
  • Other research found photos of subjects who ate a healthy diet rich in fruit and veg were rated more attractive than those with suntans.
  • eat five portions a day at least 
  •  Load up on Vitamin C 
  • Raw fruit is the best since it contains alot of water

Switch meat for fish
  •  omega-3 fats can actually help to reduce inflammation, a factor in acne and redness.

  • Anti-inflammatory, plant-based fats are also vital for clear skin so eat : avocado, extra virgin olive oil, nuts and seeds 
 
 
Most of all DRINK LOTS OF WATER!!!!!!!

How to Make Your Dreams Come True!!!!!!!!

Have you ever wanted something? Have you ever had a dream that you just can't wake up from? It could be that you wanted to become a writer, a singer, or even a fashion model. Well, I am going to tell you my story ( a really condensed version lol ) of how my dreams came true and then I will tell you how yours can too!

When I was a little girl I used to pack my bags and pretend that I was going on an adventure. I had always dreamed of seeing the world, but back then that was just a fairy tale. When I was a little girl I used to talk of becoming a lawyer, but back then that seemed unreachable . When I was a little girl I dreamed of being confident and beautiful, but I was far from it lol! Flash forward to the present and I have been to every continent ( even Antarctica) except for Asia. Flash forward to the present and I will be starting law school in the fall, and would have graduated from Michigan State University a year early with great grades. Flash forward to the present and I know I am beautifully and wonderful made and will not even tolerate anybody questioning that. There is no easy road to take if you want your dreams to come true but here are the tips that have helped me :

  1. Be a go getter. A lazy man shall not eat. If you want something you will have to put in some sort of effort. To get into law school I had to study and make good grades. Be prepared to work. 
  2. Dream big or go home. Let your imagination run wild. When I was in New York city I said that I was going to see many celebrities... and I did. I met Snoop Dogg, sat in the front row of talks shows  and even appeared on national television. Though this is a silly example it just shows that if you dream big your wish  will come true.
  3. Don't Settle. Why eat crumbs off of the floor when you can wait five more minutes and then dine with kings.
  4. Ignore the haters. Its not their life anyway . 
  5. Speak faith. I would pray that God would do for me beyond my wildest dreams. Speak life and faith and it will manifest. Words are powerful. 
  6. Don't give up. It took me till now to see ( just the beginning) of my dreams so stay positive. 




                                     Dreams by the Cranberries. This song is so relevant to this post.








Several years ago Gabrielle Douglas would have never dreamed that she would hold a gold medal and fly into the hearts of many. Today she is a celebrity, living out her dream.






Life Tips: Forgiveness











Forgive: to cease to feel resentment against. For a lot of people this is a very hard concept to grasp. It can be hard to forgive those that have done you wrong. Those people that spread rumors about ,  those people that broke you down, those people that judged you harshly, those people that made you feel like you were nothing, are they really worth forgiving? The answer to that question, is yes. Harboring resentment is not healthy. The definition of resentment is : anger, bitterness, or ill will. Resentment is a bunch of negative energy and when you hold that in you block any good from coming to your life. Also, a thing to remember is that those that have hurt you have moved on, they don't even remember ( or care) about the evil that they have bestowed on others. So, when you have resentment  in your heart you are only hurting yourself, and that is stupid to do. Think of forgiving other people as doing yourself a favor. You are not saying that what they did was alright, but you are saying that you have moved on and wish them well. When you have a clean heart  the universe cannot help but put good in your direction. Once I started adopting this way of thinking I noticed a major difference in my life. Remember though that this is a process  that takes time, don't expect it to come in one day. Lastly, no one is perfect. We have all done something hurtful ( many times unknowingly) so remember that the same way you forgive others is the same way that others will forgive you.  Peace and stay blessed :)

Kay Kay's Two Cents







Hey guys! So I haven't done this in a while and I am happy to sound off. The issue I am commenting about today is the controversy with some lyrics in Beyonce's new single, " Bow Down/I Been On". In the single she says, " I know when you were little girls/You dreamt of being in my world/ Don't forget it/ Respect that/ Bow down b----es/ Don't get it twisted this is my sh-t.Not only are fans stunned by the language that Beyonce used, many are stunned at the contradiction in the lyrics. Beyonce has been known for her " girl power anthems" such as , " Single Ladies" and " Run the World (Girls) " so this is definitely a surprise to most. I however, am not surprised. I like Beyonce. I am not a hater in any way. I just thing that she does contradict her self with this track, and I feel like she is doing it for attention. I also think that she does have a little o fan ego problem and should check that Mariah Carey attitude before she loses some of her fan base. I mean, how full of yourself can one be??? Bow down to you.... I think not.

Beating the Senioritis

Hey guys! So, I am graduating about six weeks !!!!!! Let the countdown begin. I am so exhausted, but I know I still have to keep my grades up. I have decided to make a list of ways that you can beat senioritis.
  1. Use a planner. I love Google calenders because it is so easy to edit and you can set a perfect schedule for your day. Best of all, its free and environmentally friendly. 
  2. Don't procrastinate. 
  3. Schedule down time. 
  4. Keep healthy. Exercise and  smart food choices give you energy to do what you need to do. 
  5. Get enough sleep.
  6. Accept that there are not enough hours in the day to do everything. 


Silly face :P I am ready for the summer

White Hot Spring Outfit Suggestion


Trend to Try : Bold Eyeliner



There are so many colors to choose from. Go to MAC for the best selection and to have the makeup artist choose the best color for you skin tone. Remember that you can go more subtle or more bold. For me personally, I am really into a subtle green eyeliner. When wearing a bold eye, go very natural with cheeks and lips.

By the way, all of these pieces can be purchased from Pitaya ( except for the head chain which can be bought at www.tobi.com). You can wear any type of stud earrings you want. Also, you can wear sandals or Converse for the shoes !
