Tree Trimming!

by Jamila Pierre

My main Bish, Amy (the babe who looks like Wilma Flintstone), decided to throw a little tree trimming party for just us heifers (before you get all butt-hurt, these are terms of endearment). I gotta be honest...I almost didn't go. If you've been keeping up with me then you know I suffer from chronic head/spine aches that come and go as they so choose, and can last anywhere from a few moments to a few a few days. Plus, in light of current events (watch the news)....being in a funk is an understatement, and on this particular day I was not only in a bit of a funk, but my head was throbbing something wicked. 

However, I decided to try and turn my frown upside-down, spend some time away from my own thoughts, and try and get into the holiday spirit. So I got as cute as this horrendously cold weather would permit, popped on my new matte lip cream from NYX (in the color Prague) and made my way to trim a tree and indulge in some homemade chocolate chip cookies and a home-cooked meal with people that I care about. 

I decided to steer clear of the typical holiday color palette but I stuck with the holiday shine. I went with my dual purpose (warm & chic) light grey sequin-mustache sweatshirt and a fuchsia collared top as my pop of color, together with some black skinnies and a biker boot...I was ready to go.

  1. Reindeer Antlers from 99 cents store. (Gifted)
  2. Necklace from the wholesale district. $5
  3. Mustache Sweater from $24.80
  4. Sheer Fuchsia collared top from $17
  5. High-Waisted Skinnies from $17.80
  6. Boot from $15 (on sale from $45)

What Amy's Wearing:

This year has been a roller coaster of emotions and events, so many things took place in my life and the lives of the people in my life that I'm kinda glad that this year is coming to an end. Doors have been opened though and new chapters are set to begin, I can only hope that the new year will manifest many great things for myself and the people I hold so dear to me...lord knows we've all worked so hard to achieve greatness. As for me specifically, quite a few things have been set into motion, things I can't wait to share with all of you! 2015 shall be insane to say the least, y'all ain't ready.

Happy Birthday Amy!

I could go on and on as to how much I love and appreciate this woman in this post, but I've already done that before (HERE). I believe in not just soulmates, but soul clusters, and she's definitely in my cluster. I lover her and probably always will, it still amazes me how far we've come in our friendship. We've been friends now for just about twenty years on and off, as most long lasting friendships do, we've been through it all and some how here we are, growing old together. I hope that throughout my aging years she's at my side, old and crusty, just like me.

Today is my home skillets birthday, she has now officially been inducted into the "you're an adult league".  I did, however, decide to take her out a few days prior to her birthday because I wanted to do something with just her and I. I never mind chilling with her and the fellow heifers in our clan, but I really do cherish the time we get to spend with just us. 

I wanted to treat her to something nice and different, and I wanted to make an excuse to get cute. So we got cute, headed to my most favorite Thai place (Lantern) with empty grumbling bellies, and we took advantage of their buy one get one free drink specials.

For every birthday there's a BIRTHDAY WISH, and my wish for her is that she further become the amazing, talented, brave woman, that she is pretty much already revealed herself to be; and that she acquire all the love, happiness, and clarity her heart desires, for many years to come. 

We also filled our tummies with delicious chicken pineapple fried rice and a bevy of appetizers (Chive patties, Spring rolls, Duck wraps, Cheese rangoon, and Curry pockets).
