After the holidays

Hey beauties! So since this week has been pretty rough, I had a lot of time to think and reflect. First off, I don't like pity or for anyone to feel sorry for me and my illness because I'm not! :) I know God doesn't make any mistakes and I Do serve a purpose. Next, I am becoming more interested in spreading awareness about MS and possibly advocacy. Also, I have to find a better nutrition plan. I know I'm always like "oh I will watch what I eat or workout this amount of time" truth is I may start off a week or two in a habit and then give up. Well, I need to be lighter. I could lose about 15 pounds. When I lose the weight, I believe there could be better strength in my legs, my cholesterol will go down and I will have a better BMI number.
I am being realistic by starting this after the holidays because I'm sure I will still pig out for Christmas and new years lol but I am determined :) plus I want to look good for my honeymoon ;)

A MUST WATCH-my secret- the diagnosis

I saw this video and I couldn't do anything but say "YES" someone knows and can relate to how I feel. This is my testimony and I plan to spread awareness about Multiple Sclerosis. I'm trying to turn something that may not be so great into a Positive. God is good and I will always praise HIM.

Rough Week but the Sun is still Shining

This week (starting from saturday) hands down was one of the worst I have experienced in a while yet I still smile I had a bad flare up with the illness. It got to the point where I could not walk well without assistance and my left side of my body was completely weak and numb. Despite this, I know I still have it alot better than many. As I sat in my Neurologist office waiting to be called on I saw many with neurological disorders whom were in wheel chairs and all I could do is say Lord have Mercy and Thank you.

So to help with the flare up I had to take 3 doses of steroids YIKES!!!!!! today meaning 12/16 will be my third day of treatment and I feel a difference already. I am still walking a little slow however I can do it on my own . the burning in my arms and legs has stopped, and I have gain strength in my left side so I’m good. The steroids are given through an IV fusion and it takes about an hour. Thank goodness my mother (who is retired) was there with me so I didn’t go through this alone. Stevey was at work so its great to have had the next closest person to me there. My blood is getting tested as well, and alot of test are being done as we speak to see if the antibodies in my system is really taking in the disease modifying drug (Avonex) that I have been on for over a year. If it comes back that it’s not receiving well then that’s like saying that I’m not taking any therapy for it at all good news is that there are other alternatives so we shall see!

I also signed up to participate in a study in New York that is geared towards African-Americans with MS. See in the past Multiple Sclerosis was mostly common in Caucasian females but now it has expanded to Men and other races. Scientists believe that the cognitions and progression of the disease may be worst in African-Americans so with that said I am all for learning and participating.

Which is leading me to the next step. I decided that I want to get more active in the research/giving back/ advocacy in the MS movement. I had a blog which I created when I first was diagnosed but I barely blog there I don’t know why I havent but I plan to change that. I think I may delete and start from scratch. I just feel that with positivity, psychology background, wanting to spread awareness will really be fulfilling Pray for me yall! lol

She Will Smile

She will smile


Nicole C. Davenport

Easy going

Happy Go Lucky

Miss Goodie Two Shoes

Strolls like no care in the world

She smiles from ear to ear

Positive thinker and motivator


It all changed, she changed

It felt like a tornado went through her life.

At first she thought it was her imagination

She spoke and others thought she was crazy or making excuses

So she felt sad, alone, defeated and chose to ignore it.


It happened again

Swept her off to a world that felt far away yet she was still in her usual setting

She learned the news

She accepted the challenge

She’s dealing with the changes


God does listen to prayers

God does remove obstacles

God does heal

God does provide strength

Amazing Grace

God gave her earthly angels who have her back

God gave her a life partner to see her though the rough days

God gave her a family who supports her

God gave her friends who she considers hand-picked family

And for this………..

She will survive, She will Smile.

Happy Thanksgiving beauties!!!

Very thankful for my fiance, family and besties.. As I think about how things could be for me right now, that is more than enough reason to give thanks to God.

Pump Pump Pump it UP!

Hey beauties!

Yes its that time of the year again..Thanksgiving and Christmas!!! Which means EATS=Weight Gain

Ahhh I know we love it going down however we will see it later in a new area of our body lol.

October (November too actually) was a challenging month for me, I didn't and haven't been in the gym like I would and should :(. and with other girlie stuff I have just been chowing away. I wonder if its nerves? hormonal? anxiety? doesn't really matter but I'm really going to make more of an effort to pump it up more :)

(Lets go Bucs!! hehe)

9 is fine!

Wooo Weeee 9 months to go tell me and Mr.R say "I Do" wow...where has the time gone? Well, things are coming along and we are beyond excited. I think the cutest thing is that Mr. R actually is we picked out save the dates designs together and the agreed on the photo. Which is exactly what I wanted. I'm not all about the its "all about the bride" state of mind because for 1) I can't marry myself and 2)he should voice opinions because its his wedding too :) so will keep u posted on any updates
this past friday, I straightened my hair and flipped curled it. I had trim my ends also, it was MUCH needed. I received alot of compliments on this style :) Its fun and to preserve the curls I just pin it up at night time and finger comb in the morning :) See the pics :)

Well, I will catch you beauties next time, smooches

The Saddest Story

I listen to what you say, but I see what you do
I remember the day when all my emotions seemed to be true
you have your own thoughts but it's not what you said
and now its gone, dead, the saddest story ever read.

I reached out for you but you couldn't embrace
You left, you fled, without a trace
When your story revealed your sick plot
that's when the roses begin to rot.

When your around I'm uneasy, my heart races
At times I wish me and the fly on the wall could trade places
I rather dodge fast enough to not get splattered
then to live life with you as if I didn't matter.

Go head, go on, I'm sick, I'm through
I need to be set free and away from you
Don't cry for me, don't ask for me
Just let me get out of this misery

This is a nightmare, how could this happen to us?
Its because we mistaken love for what was only lust.
Don't be sorry, because this chapter has to end
you need me to need you but now no one will win.

10 years...

My prayers will always be with the families, and friends who lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks.

11 Months to go

hey beauties,

After watching bridezillas, I refuse to become one..BOTTOMLINE. I feel that peeps forget what really matters and the purpose. So, instead of me pulling my hair out, I rather just let it work itself out and look pretty. My goal is to save, look beautiful, give the ultimate promise to God, my fiance in front of family and close friends and also to fit into my wedding gown :) hehe :)

Have a baby...then get back to business

CONGRATS TO THE CARTERS!!! I didnt watch the VMA's I was too busy watching Trueblood and entourage, I know booo me LOL. however one of my besties texted me saying BEYONCE is expecting im like oh shoot! :D I dont know why but I am so happy for them. I have all the respect for Bey, who else can have movie directors pausing film so that she can have a pregnancy instead of giving up the role? :D

Look at Beyonce's glow! I hope and pray that God blesses me to experience that feeling one day. I look forward to motherhood and all that comes with it. For now, I'll just concentrate on Marriage lol :D

Be blessed beauties

Counting blessings

I am very happy here in l.i. we didnt get the horrible damage that was expected. Many disagree with me, but I am happy the gov't did evacuate people that lived in high flooding areas.

Whats interesting to me is the amount of people disappointed that Irene didnt do more damage *confused face* you want to experience "Katrina" like circumstances? *rolls eyes* ok smh.

Regardless, I'm happy and will continue to count my blessings that I only experienced gusty winds and kept me awoke.

be blessed beauties

When it rains....

It pours doesn't it? Hmph on days like this all I would want to do is ball up and be left alone...Did I? Nope. I went to church, was instantly encouraged. God is an On Time God and is truly amazing.

Whenever I begin to have doubt about myself or struggle with some burdens, I keep in mind "look at where I came from". I'm sure if you look back to the past 5 years, you will see how much better off you are. If you still cant see it, then watch the commercials of the starving children in distant countries, better yet look in the urban areas. You will see that you definitely have it alot easier than Most. Continue to believe and keep the faith, try not to keep your head low, try not to :( but turn that sad face around :) God bless you beauties

Countdown begins

Hey beauties! Yes 8/9/2012 will be here before we know it. Time is really flying by however I am doing my best to keep it all together :) My fiance, parents and besties are really keeping me focused and relaxed. I really don't want to go crazy because healthwise its not good to be overly stressed and just in general it doesnt make sense to go crazy for something that is God sent and natural.
Now dont get me wrong I enjoy and I am entertained by bridezillas but the women are bonkers smh LOL. I am fully aware that there will be stressful times, and shortcomings but the beat must go on!

I will update on the wedding on or about the 9th of every month all the way up until the Big day is here :)

Week N

Have a great weekend beauties

Going with the FI to see "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" I'm thinking it will be good. What are your plans?

If I click my heels three times...

Ever wonder about that feeling Dorothy had in the Wizard of Oz? Like just with clicking your heels 3 times you were able to return home, to what was normal. Sometimes, with my condition, I think about clicking my heels 3 times to go back to life before the diagnosis.

Life doesn't work that way, however I know with prayer and trusting in God, all things are possible. The body can heal and restore. Despite it all, my spirit has not changed. If anything, I have become a stronger Woman. Alot of things that I used to dwell on or worry about, really doesn't matter like they use to.

Since I can't click my heels 3 times, I will just take everyday one and a time and enjoy life with my loved ones..OH Yeah and continue Wedding Planning!!!

26 and beyond

So, I celebrated my 26 birthday last weekend. I had a good time even though I got sick a few times because I dranked in the heat with my tummy on E (no bueno) however it didn't stop the groove. Lately, a lot has been going on in my head such as wedding planning, my education, jobs, future living arrangements and children. I'm sure just like any other woman who is entering a new journey in her life would agree that spouse, career, home and motherhood are top priority. With that being said, I can't include myself with any drama or negativity. I know trouble does come our way, but with prayer, deep breaths we can look trouble in the eye and throw a curve ball! :)

Yes, 26 and beyond..4 years to 30 :)

Saturday, July 16, 2011

It's Toasty!

Hey beauties!

You know it's hot when see people's make up melting off lol. I'm doing my best to stay cool and not complain. I don't believe I am complaining, I believe I am just stating facts. So I'm staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water. How are you guys keeping cool?

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

You don't have to stay in the whole

Hey beauties!

Boy oh boy is it hella hot outside! Sheesh. This time of the year is really rough for me because of the temperature sensitivity but I'm still stepping it up :)

Anyways, I have a question.... Why do women remain in a whole instead of trying to get out? We all make mistakes some are easier to learn from and some are more difficult. However, no matter how difficult the circumstance is you dont have to remain low and never prosper.

I just feel that you can't claim to be strong and independent when you are in a co-dependent relationship. Your happiness should come from within and not soley from your mate, or friend. We are smart however we rather deal with mistreatment instead of using the wisdom we possess. Think about it..have you ever did this or know of someone who just put themself in a whole and couldnt get out?

Saturday, May 28, 2011


hello beauties!

Is there ever a point of your life when you just throw up your hands and say I'm done!? I just feel as of late I have been saying that to myself and actually doing it. However, I'm not done lol. My work, talents and new journey is just beginning. God is truly amazing, all praises to Him.

All is well with the FI and my loved ones. They are my earthly angels if there is a such thing :). I thank God every day for them being in my life. Through many ups and downs they are still there helping me all the way.

I think the love bug is definitely in the air because it seems like ever since me and my future hubs got engaged, many other couples I know are engaged as well, close to their wedding, purchased homes or are pregnant. I know it sounds hype but my heart melts when I hear about good news :)

Whats new with everyone else? thanks to those who follow my blog, I know I'm the worst this year with blogging but after school is done I will blog more randoms :) muahz!

be blessed beauties

Hey beauties!

I hope all is well. I'm doing pretty good. I've been feeling ok. Much better than the last few weeks. I felt good enough to even make it to Zumba class. The instructor Tara is off the chain and I've been in her class for over a year.

I am still very happy engaged! lol I was getting myself all worked up for alot of things and reasons that just were all that relevant. I'm happy that my babe knows me well enough to not get to p'ed off at me :P lol. so slow but surely the plans will come.

Very Excited

Hey beauties!

Happy New year!!! I hope every one's New Year is off to a great start. All is well here on my end. I know I do not blog like I should but hey I'm not a true blogger. I like to write down my thoughts and vent lol.

The last time I did blog, I shared that news that me and the honey bun are engaged. We finally settled with being engaged meaning we are no longer in the state of shock. We are very excited!! I look forward to wedding planning and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with my babe :)
