{1 yr Blogaversary} Go Bloggie, its yo’ Birthday!

April 19th marks 1 year since I published my FIRST post for my baby, my blog, Style Me B.A.D! It has been a long journey to get here and just like pimpin’, blogging aint easy. Its been a year full of trials, challenges, writers block, camera issues, opportunities, new friends, new ideas, inspiration, successes, and just all around B.A.D  ass-ness. I am so proud of myself for: 1. Starting a blog and crossing it off my list of goals. 2. Keeping up with and updating my site as often as I can manage throughout the past year. I have seen so many blogs come and go as quick as they launched. You have to be passionate about what you do and when you aren’t other people can tell right from the jump. So with that said, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to all of you who take the time to read my posts, comment, tweet, Facebook me, email me and share my blog with others. Special thank you to all the beautiful BAD ass …

Give some one a thank you card, bake some cupcakes, get your mom that new lipstick she has been wanting, but hasn’t wanted to spend the money. Do something selfless for someone else who has been so generous towards you. Be (A)uthentic: A BAD girl will eventually forgive, but she wont forget. Don’t waste your time being full of negativity or hatred towards someone. It takes up way too much of your energy and your time is priceless. Whoever hurt you in the first place isn’t worth it. Some things can be repaired and others need to be left alone. So wish them well and MOVE ON. If/when someone asks you about him/her your response should be- “I don’t really care to talk about him/her.” Next topic please. Be (D)etermined: Being healthy is important. …
