Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days

Okay, so I mustn't lie. I was sitting here thinking and thinking and thinking some more, what am i proud of?!?! What has made me proud within the last few days? I'm thinking, hard, and nothing comes to mind. Well, I guess I can say I am proud of the woman I am becoming. I am branching out, I used to be SO dependent, and self-conscious about myself. Somewhere within the few weeks, my confidence has spiked, and quite frankly I've become ballsy. See that can be misconstrued to something negative, but really its not. I used to say I kept it 100% I would tell you the truth point blank, in a respectable manner of course but seriously, I didn't give a hoot if I hurt your feelings. Now, I keep it real, I still don't sugar coat, BUT the difference is I truly mean it. If someone asked me say a month ago, hey lets go do this, and that then that and this, I probably would have thought dang it, I've got sooo much to do, I really do not need to be wasting time doing something I truly don't want to do, but yet I would find a way to justify that action as acceptable in my mind and do it. Now, I just say no, I don't give an explanation because I feel like I don't need to justify my actions to anyone...well maybe my mother, but come on she birthed me. So, what am I proud of? Well, I'm proud of me, for getting my priorities straight, and just taking time to be free! We all need some mental health days!

Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why

Hmmm I don't like goals. I don't like them because I don't like putting time limits on anything. It can restrict me because I know that I have 23 more days until I have to get this or that done, but on the other hand it makes me stay on top of whatever needs to be done. So my goals for the remainder of this month is to:

1. Eat healthier and exercise more. Holiday season is around the corner, and I don't need to gain anymore wait but maintain or loose. Plus exercising is such an amazing feeling, and it gives me a reason to go outside take in the scenery, and listen to music AND burn some fat.

2. Get rid of useless stuff. I have sooo much stuff its ridiculous, clothes on top of clothes, books, movies, you name it i prob. have it in my room. You know I've got 5 lamps in my room. Why you may wonder?!?! They were on SALE and I just couldn't pass it up. Pathetic! I know!!

3. Go to church every week. Enough said.

4. You still wisely, I sure know how to waste time doing a bunch of nothing!

5. Study more! School is important and grades only show for the most part the amount of studying you do. So I need to def. study more so my grades can improve.

These are 5 short term goals for myself, surely I can meet these goals...right?!?

Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

My mother has and will always be my number one. We have an amazing unique relationship. It's more of a sisterhood or best friend status. Sometimes I forget that I am talking to my mother. I talk to her with respect of course, but I'm not afraid to be like GIRLLLL lookie here, this negro dun worked my LAST nerve. I appreciate my mother for all she has done. Mother has taught me so much through my 22 years on this big ole earth. Shes taught me strength, and how to have a heart. You have to understand that I've been around a lot of single mothers through my life, and I think that if I was a single mother I'd be bitter, and resent my kids, and the father for the hell he put me through, but my mother was a young mom with two kids, and never talked down on my father. I think that a lot of women forget that these days. My mother strived for excellence and strived for us to stay our age, to not let us worry about not making ends meet. My mother is one tough cookie, strong willed, blunt, lovable, a mighty woman of God, and so much more. I think of all the times we spend together and think gosh I've got such a great mother. There are people in this world who could careless if they hung out, better yet speak to their mother.

I find it interesting that someone pretty much asked me, aren't you past the age of hanging out with your mother?? My response, I will never be too old to hang out with my mother, I will never let anyone come between me and my wonderful mother, and no friend, nor foe will ever make me feel like my relationship with my mother is too much. I'm just saying...
So ladies, call your mothers, let them know you appreciate them, or if you feel like you cant do that, just thank them for giving you life. I mean that's huge on its own.

After The Storm

I'm learning something new about myself. I'm starting to have this immense fascination/obsession with the sky. It start out with me taking pictures after a storm, and the it continued to me take a picture several times a day. Actually, its not just the sky, but more so of nature. I love taking pictures while I'm driving of scenarios, etc. I have this one picture of a construction site right after a storm and the way the sky is lit up is magnificent. Anyone, just want to show u all this love pic. This is after a tornado hit the are I work in. You really can't even tell.

Day 06- Favorite Super Hero And Why


I think it all started with Soulja Boy: He taught all of us how to crank that soulja boy and superman that oooh. LOL I'm totally kidding!!

Anywho its Superman all day everyday! Perhaps its my love for smallville that's based off of this epic hero. Its the I can fly, I have super sonic hearing, the seeing through objects, super strength, and the burning with his eyes!! All of it, I absolutely LOVE. NOW if he could just find a way to read minds, move objects with his mind, and tellaport!!!!

Oh Superman how I love your manly body, and protruding muscles. The way you can always coordinate in a red or blue shirt makes it easy for me to guesstimate what you will wear. The way you turn into a sexy super hero in a blink of an eye in a phone booth has me eagerly waiting at each phone booth on my street! Oh superman the way you fight crime and hide your identity makes you a true hero in my eyesight. Forever yours, curvalicous champ...

Day 05- A Picture Of Somewhere You’ve Been To

Viva Las Vegas!

It wasn't too long ago when I crossed state lines and found myself in good ole Sin City. I went there for my mother's birthday and ended up having a mini vacation of my own. Four days in Vegas with about 12 hrs of sleep in total in all those days. Let me tell you, it was worth every minute. The lights, the streets, the people, the shows, the solicitors, EVERYthing I loved. I even managed to meet this TALL hott guy out there.. Hmm if only I could have taken him hommme with me :( Oh bummer. Anywho, these pictures are from my short stay there. I swear I was such a tourist. I mean really, I took pictures of everything, only sad part.. I'm not in pretty much ANY of them. Its okay though because Ive got my memories to go off on ;)

I would say watch out for a video on this, but honestly Ive been saying that for the last 3 weeks, so hopefully I'll have this video up before my birthday which by the way is in January. Ha! Enjoy the pictures ^_^

Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn’t have.....


In lovely WEBSTER’S dictionary it defines procrastination as “to put off”. Nicely said Webster. My definition…PURE LAZINESS. Somewhere within the last say….5 YEARS I’ve had a serious case of senioritis. You see, I thought senioritis would wear off AFTER I graduated from high school, but apparently not because it’s followed me into college too. It’s a very nasty habit that I’ve been meaning to get rid of, but have yet to conquer. It’s that it’s my day off I don’t feel like doing a got dang thing! Point blank, no excuse. I feel like because I’ve worked a 50 hour work week, and then I’ve had class, and had to do this and that. That laundry can wait, cleaning can wait, why make up my bed when I’m just going to get right back in it later in the day. Boy, laziness sure has taken over. Hopefully I can shake it, but until, ill major in procrastination because I’ve been studying it for awhile and have been acing that sucker!

Music Makes The World Go ARRROUND!

     According to music is an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color. For me my life revolves around music. Music makes the world go around, end of discussion. It’s the way combinations of mystical sounds can soothe you. The way one song can express everything you want to say without you speaking one word. It’s the way as soon as that one song comes on, it can make you reminisce back to the very first time you heard that song.

     Pop, Rhythm and Blues, Hip-Hop, Alternative, Rock, Jazz, Country, Techno, Gospel, New Age, Classical, etc whatever your taste desires, it’s out there. Available for you even when you don’t know you need it. So there’s this one song by the lovely Jasmine Sullivan, it’s called “Holding You Down” If you haven’t heard it do so. This song for some reason takes me back to this guy that has this reoccurring role in my life. I know what you think, how so? Well he’s only reoccurring because I allow him to be quite frankly. But long story short we had a thing, and now this thing that’s been going on forever and a day (4 years) as grown tiresome on me, and I feel like I’m spinning and spinning on this endless merry go round that won’t end. Whew, felt great to get that out! Any who, this song makes me think of him, but in a way it makes me smile too. It makes me FEEL soo warm inside. What can I say I’m weird. But you ever listen to a song that gives you goose bumps? As for this song, it’s not that she sings so powerfully OR the song has some extraordinary meaning, it’s simply that I can relate to whomever made this song, and trust, it helps. So if you are wondering, below I will paste the lyrics of the song, check ‘em out if you like.

"Holding You Down (Goin' In Circles)"
Why cant I find somebody else
When I know
Know that you're doing wrong
Its so hard
Hard to let go

I done went through just about two bags of tissues baby
And you're looking at me like you ain't the issue baby
And though I tried to leave
I cant stop missing you baby
And I keep coming
I keep coming back

I keep going in circles, circles
Round and round
And while you're doing me so wrong

I just keep holding you down
I feel so stupid, foolish
Loving you all this way
But what I can I say
But I wanna go
I wanna go
But I keep coming back

Why I'm so confused for you,
I have no answer boy
When I feel so used by you just like a toy
Its a shame that you don't care enough
To even give me half the love I give to you

I live for you baby
I'm ashamed to say that I'm to blame for how you act
Cuz I keep coming
I keep coming back
I'm going in circles, circles
Round and round
And while you're doing me so wrong
I just keep holding you down
I feel so stupid, foolish

Loving you all this way
But what I can I say
But I wanna go
I wanna go
But I keep coming back
I cant stop... missing you baby

I stay cuz I love you
But I hate that I stay
You know I won't go
Thats why you treat me this way
I want to be happy
Though it hurts me so bad
Don't know what it is that keeps me coming back
Keep going in circles, circles
Round and round
And while you're doing me so wrong
I just keep holding you down
I feel so stupid, foolish
Loving you all this way
But what I can I say
But I wanna go
I wanna go
But I keep coming back

Day 03- A picture of you and your friends

I remember this exact day when we all took this picture. We were the three peas in a pod! We all went to dinner, and decided to be random and stop in a Lowe's parking lot to snap this picture. The wind was extremely rough, and I thought that my 'weave' was going to get all messed up! I remember this picture distinctly because it was the last  one we all took together. Its crazy how things change and people you once were soooo close with become such a distant after thought. Sounds rough uh? But you know I'm being extremely truthful. I see these ladies, every so often, and I miss them dearly, but life comes at you so fast at times, and the simple thoughts of randomness seem so out of the ordinary these days. But here's to a great memory, a great picture and a night of fun. And here's to another day, where I will find myself doing this same thing when I can :).

Day 2: Curvalicious Fashion

When I first made this blog I thought it would be an adaptation to my YouTube channel (Truchamp06). Once creating this blog, I realized that it is not how I imagined it should be. Being plus size is not just about fashion. It’s a world of its own. It’s having an extra boost of confidence because we need it, it’s being determined, and having our own opinions. It’s about being who you want to be, and being a leader in this monstrous world. Plus size, curvy, big boned, thicke, fat, obese, curvalicious, heavy set, phat, big, huge, however you choose to define yourself so be it.

So back to the original question at hand, why did I choose my name? Curvalicious, was just a spectacular name to me, it was curvy with a umpf to it. Something out of the ordinary than saying big girl fashion. So that is where the lovely name Curvalicious was derived from. Hope you all enjoy my blog, continue to read on. Who knows what you might read next :)!

Day 1: Picture and 15 Facts..

Click On The Picture To See The REAL Difference
I'm supposed to post a picture of myself. I got to thinking, does it have to be a current one? Or any one? Anywho, I took this picture for myself, this isn't a type that I would show to the world because in my own words I don't look my "best". However that is the reason why I am posting this. I think it is fundamental to love yourself through every stage you go through. Through your "ugliest" days to your most glamorous ones. I decided to show you all something, something. A little photo magic. Its a way that you can loose your identity too. Photo retouching has become automatic these days, you don't even have to put on make up, the computer can do it for you. It is quite crazy if you ask me, but take a look. Tell me what you see, and what difference it can and will make. I love me for me, and that's why I will always choose the picture on the left.

Fifteen Facts about me!
1. I've felt misunderstood my whole life.
2. I have a star fetish.
3. I keep the fortunes from my fortune cookies in a jar.
4. I'm at peace when I hear music.
5. I HATE black cats with yellow/green eyes.
6. I was deeply in love, but didn't realize how much until that person was gone.
7. I live by the quote, "Life is what you make it".
8. I love Blue Bell's Moo-llennium Crunch Ice Cream. YUMMY!
9. I used to dye my hair every month funky colors to feel like I had some sort of control over something.
10. I cry, more now than ever have in my life, but that's OK bc I don't see anything wrong with that :).
11. I will give my last dime to my closest friends and family.
12. I don't remember much before the age of 11.
13. Rolly Pollies were my favorite bugs to play with as a kid.
14. I used to run track.
15. I sleep with the A.C. super low, and 3 comforters each night.

Let's Take A Ride..

So, I was suddenly inspired after watching one of my friends video, and then reading her blog. She is truly an inspirational being, and doesn't slightly realize how much she has become such a blessing in my life. So, after reading her last couple entries of her blog I decided to tag along and follow in miss Mayra's (ThickngorgeouzZ) footsteps and do the 30 day blog challenge. This will truly be a challenge, because I feel like I have been so distant from the outside world myself. So, this challenge will push me to one open up, and two start to step out and see how bright this sun has been shinning since I've been in hiding.

       So, here's to the next 30 days. Enjoy the ride! Below are the questions I will be answering daily.

Not A Laughing Matter!

Good afternoon! What can I say, today started off with a bang! I had a lovely dentists' appointment this morning, that I really was not looking forward to going to. Let me start off by saying FLOSS, in and around your teeth THOROUGHLY. Second tip, if you drink soda, don't drink that soda alll day, as in  sipping, drink it with your meal, or however you do it and be done with it. With that said, here's where I went wrong. I went to the dentist like 6 months ago for a normal cleaning..and I was graced with unpleasant news.. 14 CAVITIES. Now dont go WTF Audrey because I am not GREEDY with the candy I swear, I brush my teeth A LOT and floss, hmm when I get something stuck in my teeth! YIKES! Lesson learned, so I'm a wuss, lets just call it plain and simple. In the last 6 months Ive gotten hmm like 9 of the 16 done. I just was not too motivated to get them done because the immense lock jaw and pain that I get. But the other day I decided you know what, let me do this, let's get this suckker done!

However, I should have reconsidered that. So I get there, and I'm talking to the doc, because last time I almost walked outta there with the instruments still in my mouth bc it hurt that bad. So, they decided you know what, let's just give you a bit of Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) at first it was great. I was like awake, and then they cranked it up. Apparently it wasn't working as good as they thought. That's when the nauseous feeling came in. Trust, I let them know too! I snatched that mask off my face so fast, and said imma vomit LOL that caught both of their attentions because they backkkkked up off a sista!

Maybe it was the Lunesta I took last night that hadn't worn off all the way, mixed in with this lovely Nitrous, all and all, it made me sick several times, all over my new shirt! Oh boo! But hey, I can check this off as another learning lesson. Guess that's just how the cookie crumbles today!

All in all, 12hr of being sick, makes for cavity free teeth!

Vegas Baby!

I recently went on a trip with mi mama to Vegas to celebrate her lovely 26th birthday ^_^ I have so much video feed, and pictures, and it will prob. take me a HOT minute to upload my video onto youtube. But's i wanted to give you a mini sneak preview of what we saw/did.

Annd a couple more--


Ladies, have you ever felt down and out. Just like you are not yourself?? Like your loosing reality, and you almost want to let yourself, but something is shaking you and forcing you to get yourself together. The other day day I felt like I was an emotional wreck. Burnt out with work, school, and dealing other issues had me thinking... I need to smile, not the fake smile that people see because I have to have it, but the smile within me. I need to laugh not the ha-ha oh boy that was a knee slapper laugh, but one of those laughs, that hurt. You know, stomach hurts, cheeks burn, and you're completely out of breathe. So, I decided to treat myself to a nice late night park walk. Here's a look :)
