WHY I NEVER SHOW MY BODY

Yaya

One of the first things I do each morning is check my email. Lately, I've received quite a few personal questions so today, rather than responding privately, I'm answering 5 of my favorite Q's—publicly. 

Q: WHY DON’T YOU EVER SHOW YOUR BODY IN PHOTOS?

I have two sons, and as a mom, I will never compromise my body or do anything that would affect, offend, disrespect or disgrace my boys, or myself; especially over the internet.

While a substantial amount of women feel the need to have to sell their body for attention; 

I DO NOT.


Q: WHY DO YOU KEEP YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA LOCKED?

I have one Twitter account, as well as two Facebook accounts, two Instagram accounts, Snapchat, Pinterest and Tumblr; I'm a social gal, what can I say. All of my accounts are public, with the exception of one Instagram account and one Facebook account. I keep those two private for my personal use.


Q: DO YOU HAVE SHORT HAIR? AND WHAT COLOR IS YOUR HAIR?

Yes my hair is cut in a medium bob with long layers all around. My layers are longer toward the front. The color is a medium chestnut brown, with a darker shade at the roots, for depth, and honey highlights.

I don't recall the exact names of each color but for those of you interested, I will make a note of it next time. I do tend to go lighter in summer.

Footnote: I'm a lover of extensions too.

Q: I NOTICE YOU ONLY SHOW PARTS OF YOUR FACE IN PICS, WHY?

Very observantI like that!

Food for thought; if you pay attention to my tee's, they say a lot too. 

In all seriousness, I think it's fun to be a little mysterious and playful, but the truth is, it's not always going to be about me! Too often it becomes all about the blogger and she loses focus on why she started blogging in the first place. 

What I love is Style. Culture. Food. Travelthat is why I Write and that is where I want the focus to be. 

Q: YOU ALWAYS WRITE SO POSITIVE. ARE YOU REALLY ALWAYS THAT HAPPY?

I try to be—I do have my days—but as I've gotten older, I've learned that my happiness falls on me. I eliminate toxic people from my life; that includes people on social media and sadly, even some family. 


Q: Is there anything you hate?

NO! Hate is a powerful word.

I love reading your emails, I read them all, I really do, and although I may not answer them as quickly as I'd like, I do eventually get to each of you. Thank you for following along. XO
