I rushed to work as always and got in the door just 2 minutes after 7:30am...nobody noticed, so I smiled. The day went on and it was great. I chatted it up with my supervisor who openly adores me and I had a nice "unhealthy" lunch from Popeyes. I noticed the rain throughout the day, but that didn't stop me from smiling. I talked to one of my Besties and had a long loving, yet humorous conversation with my Man. All I seemed to care about today was Me, My Family, My Friends, My Man, and My Future.
The evening continued to be great; So great, that I was shocked to hear such a serious voice coming from the television. I looked at it and saw a Beautiful 5yr girl on the screen so I looked a little longer. 10 minutes later I find myself here, typing, with tears in my eyes. Who could do this to a child.
A Precious Beautiful Child. Our Precious Beautiful Children. Defenseless against the evil cold ways of this world, sent back home to be with their Perfect Creator. They've hurt no one and they didn't ask to be here. They are Blessings and I will Pray tonight and tomorrow and Forever for their protection.
As I was living my life on November 16th, a 5 yr child was sold to a strange man by her mother and murdered......now suddenly everything that seemed so important doesn't anymore...The thoughts consumed with Me, My, and Mine are gone, as I pray for her precious soul and the young lives still living♥
Do me a favor and send up a prayer for the children of this world, and don't be afraid to be nosey and Help, you never know, you could be saving a life..
With Love Now and Always, Nikki

I'm over the hype. All I have to say to the copy cats and wannabes is Look up to Greatness and not the guy with saggy pants that yells vulgarities or the half naked gyrating woman that sales more sex than talent....Don't fall victim to the glitz and glam that these beast paint all over themselves to hide how ugly they truly are.....
IN MY WORLD I'M FAMOUS. The life I live is a never ending display of my talent. I don't sell out or fake. My fans are my Loved ones and My payments are Blessings. I'M RICH ♥; And if anything, most of these so called celebs should be looking up to me, lol.
Peace & Love Nikki :)

I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich.
The great gift of family life is to be intimately acquainted with people you might never even introduce yourself to, had life not done it for you.
I Love my family more than words can say and the best thing about this Love is that they Love me the same way.
I Love You Aunt Cookie, Until We Meet Again ♥

Love is the best feeling you will ever feel. Its warms you all over and it moves you to smile, laugh and cry happy tears. It gives you Strength! It guides you and those who Really Have It thrive off of it. It gets them going in the morning and calms them before they sleep at night, Love is just that powerful.
As the Good Book says "If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing."
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
PEACE & MUCH LOVE ♥ Nikki :)

Its true that some have more insecurities than others and Women more so than Men...but at the end of the day it all comes down to accepting and loving who and what you are.
Love who you are and if you don't like something work positively to Change it....and if you can't change it EMBRACE it :)
Don't even pay attention to others and what they have, what they look like, what they talk like, or how Confident they are being because.......
ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD
some put on a good front.
If its one thing anyone that knows me can vouch for it's that I LOVE ME :). I'm not perfect, I make mistakes But I'm ME....and I smile at just the thought of it :)
Here are 8 tips to help you feel more Confident!
♥ Read and listen to inspirational things like your Bible, Positive Blogs, Uplifting books and Music.
♥ Began working toward your goals. We are all a work in progress, so enjoy the journey.
♥ Get rid of/ignore/avoid negative people, jealous people, fake friends, and a bad relationship. I have NO room in my life for negative people or things and nor should you.
♥ Always try to look your best. When you look good you feel good.
♥ STOP paying attention to those who give you a bad feeling about yourself. If you ever wished that you looked or acted like someone else..STOP, no one is perfect.
♥ Do things to make others happy, you will feel better about yourself for it.
♥ Write down or say all the things you like about yourself or that you want to accomplish and get motivated!
♥ Remember that Beauty starts within and that "Sexy" and "Confidence" is an ATTITUDE, not a physical attribute.
I'M HAPPY TO BE BEAUTIFUL INSIDE-OUT AND SO SHOULD YOU!
insecurities are no match to confidence.
♥PEACE & HEALTHY KISSES♥ Nikki :)

♥Warm your palms by rubbing your palms then cover your eyes with them. This will also help your eyes to relax.
♥Many people tend to form dark circles under their eyes. Best way to treat them is by putting slice of potato over the eyes for at least 20 minutes.
♥Another method is to apply warm tea bags on the eyes for 15 minutes, to get rid of dark circles.
♥After a hectic day refresh your eyes, try applying a squeezed cotton pad of ice water on the eyelids for 20 minutes.
♥Another way to relax your eyes is to place sliced cucumber on the eyelids while you are relaxing.
♥Eat lot of green vegetables, Vitamin C rich fruits, tomatoes, carrots, dairy products, poultry and rich sources of Vitamin A and E.
♥Use anti glare glasses when you are working on the computer and while driving also.
♥Only use reputed company’s eye make-up.
♥Before going to bed don’t forget to remove your eye make-up.
A balanced lifestyle results in healthy and beautiful eyes. A Nutritious and balanced diet, exercise, regular sound sleep and equilibrium between work and rest are the key things for Beautiful and Sparkling Eyes.

Its time for our DREAMS to become REALITY.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
It took me 26yrs to get to a point where I feel as though I'M TRULY READY....I had so many things to experience that had to make me stronger first. I had LESSONS to LEARN and different personalities to meet. I had mistakes to make so I could figure out solutions. I had falls to take so I could learn how to always get up! It took me longer but I'm going to use that to My Advantage so never feel like its too late to hop on this path and go forth with a Vengeance :).
NOTHING or NO ONE will stand in our way. Success is a climb Upward so we will sweat and it may get tough....but ANYTHING WORTH HAVING IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR!
I am now armoured up and ready to accomplish everything my passionate beating heart desires. NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER. I am a WOMAN with a GOAL and I make the rules.
I would like to dedicate this post to Mia from Black in America pt.2. I wish her the best, as I do all of you!
Peace Nikki :).....See ya at the TOP!
& remember ♥ with everything in life is a lesson learned.......

JUST SOME THOUGHTS GOING THROUGH MY MIND:) I'M SO BLESSED!
THERE IS NO GREATER FEELING THAN TO LOVE, BE LOVED, AND HAVE LOVE ALL AROUND YOU!
A BLESSING COMES IN MANY FORMS. IT COMES IN LOST, GAIN, HAPPINESS, EVEN PAIN. BUT THE THING ABOUT A BLESSING....
IS THAT THE END RESULT IS HAPPINESS!!
TRUE, BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT, HAPPINESS......THAT CAN ONLY COME FROM GOD.

The donkey kick is a calisthenic exercise that targets the gluteus(butt) and lower back muscles. These two parts of the body are trouble spots for both men and women. While women usually look to tone their tush, men frequently are victims of lower back pain so share this with your Boo's.♥
At A Gym: Begin by placing your left knee on the bottom of an incline bench. Bend your elbows and place your forearms across the top of the bench so they support your body weight. Slowly raise your right leg as high as comfortably possible, keeping it straight throughout the move. Contract your glutes and then reverse direction, returning back to the start position. After performing 8-12 repetitions, repeat the process on your left.
At Home: Get on all fours on mat (hands under shoulders, knees under hips). Keeping right knee bent 90 degrees, flex right foot and lift knee to hip level. Lower knee without touching floor; lift again. Do 8-12 reps. Switch legs; repeat.
♥Wear 5 pound ankle weights while doing either move to achieve greater resistance and better results.
Kisses Nikki :)

This product leaves my scalp clean and my hair moisturized. I use it to cleanse my hair once a week. Since it has a "cone" in it which can eventually cause build up, I use Nexxus Aloe Rid (another FAVE of mine) Once every 3 weeks, which Clarifies and renews the hair stripping it of product buildup.
You will find mixed reviews on this product and I can honestly say that when I first used it I was like "meh"...but Now, Well now I'm in love. After that first wash my hair & scalp has greatly benefited from this product! It feels fuller, healthier, and stronger! I have Relaxed/fine 4 A/B type hair, so if you can relate...Try It♥
