I Am Not My Hair

I came across this young lady's story on her mom's Facebook page, and I knew instantly I wanted to share her story on my blog. I could imagine the emotions that her and her mother went through. They had to come against this new struggle and fight for something that’s very important to a woman and a young girl. In a place where how you look is very important. Most women feel like their hair is everything. We live in a country where billions of dollars are being used on hair products, hair services and more. When this young lady thought it was just a piece of hair coming and didn’t understand what was going on I’m sure she was scared and confused. Then a mother sees and does not instantly know what is going on. I'm sure she instantly becomes frightened of what she has to do for her daughter. After the visit to a specialist, they diagnosed that she has alopecia. As any mother her first thought was will, she be picked on by her peers. Kids can be very cruel and I’m sure this is something that Quintasia did not want to deal with when there is enough stuff as a preteen to face. 

I know that this was a hard decision to make between them mother to cut off her hair. Even though the hair was constantly falling out and they could no longer use the hair she had left to cover up all the ball spots. What your mother shared with me about how she was being picked on by her classmates and peers broke my heart. Any mother that has a daughter who understands how Jevita felt. She probably wanted to protect and defend her like any other mom would.

 Quintasia when I met her came off as such a shy and quiet individual. She will overcome this and she’s tough. With her parents by her side, it’s just a hurdle they have to jump over.  


What can other parents do? Teach your kids to be kind and if they don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything. 

Although she may have lost her hair, she is still an amazing individual. The hair was an accessory so with or without it she is beautiful. The hair loss will not break her, it’s just part of her testimony.

Featuring Interview with Cake Designer Nicole of OKC Cake Lady

Photos Provided By Nicole   Me: Hi Nicole! How did you start your passion for designing cakes and where are you located? Hi! I am located in Oklahoma City Oklahoma. I started working at a grocery store whenever I was 18 years old. I have always been a car Enthusiast and I had a mini truck that I was fixing up as a hobby. The grocery store manager asked if I wanted to work in the bakery to get more hours. Well, more hours equaled more money for my truck, and I kindly took them up on their offer. From there, I started in the bakery, and I absolutely loved it. I could not get enough of getting to create and putting smiles on customers faces. Me: What made you take a leap into starting your own business? I have always loved business. When I walk into other people's stores, I always look for ways to try to improve their store in my head. So, after working in the bakery for years I just knew that I could do this on my own and I would be a lot happier. I knew that being in my own environm

Featuring Tea Town in Montgomery, AL

Written By: Felecia Causey Tea Town is a family-owned restaurant located in Montgomery, AL.  It’s in a great location right off Vaughn Road, close to the AMC movie theater. The first thing that caught my attention was how clean it was.  I enjoyed how peaceful it seemed.  Oh, my goodness, my readers and followers know how important good customer service is to me.  The entire family that was there was so welcoming. I was impressed when they asked if I had any food allergies.  That was very courteous of them.    I wanted to get a little more background of this family.  Just by talking to Buu and Brandi I knew they were aiming to build relationships with their customers. Watching the interactions between them and each person that came through the door, told me that they would treat their customers like family.  It will definitely set them apart from many other restaurants in my book. Phat Trieu and Cam Thai came from Vietnam along with their kids.   They have been cooking for years and
