Confession of the Anti-TomBoy

December 29, 2009 2 comments

Before I get extra deep into my blog and me blogging away, let me give you some back ground on me.

I am 36 Black Woman, of a very mixed dna mixture, No Kids,never married, but i am dating a great guy and an assistant project manager by day for a construction company.  I am a die hard Chicagoan, and an Alumnae of Tuskegee University, a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority *whew that was a mouth full*

Thats the basic boring stuff…I was a prissy little girl who’s mom is a TomBoy. It was interesting growing up, my Mom made sure i knew how to play sports and change a flat tire, my Dad made sure i knew how to fight.  They both encouraged me to grow up and be what i could be and never let the fact that i was black or a woman stand in my way.

But there was something really interesting with me and my Mom.  She is a die hard TomBoy.  Now she wears dresses but getting all dolled up is not her thing, but it was mine.

I have been a budding fashion diva since i can remember.  One of my fondest memories is going shopping for my Easter outfit.  Which consisted of a bomb diva dress The dress was the start, it was usually pink or red or purple the 3 colors i lived by as a kid, still do today. Then you had to find the right shoes Patten Leather was/is one of my favorite materials for shoes and bags…. i would have the matching shoes usually black or white and of course the coordinating bag and of course your thinking thats it right? No not for Vonetta, i had the anklets, gloves and hat to match

While i miss the days of me getting a new easter and christmas dress *yes i got a new one for each with all the bells and whistles that go with it* I do not do the matchy matchy thing any more lol

But cant you see the start of a young fashion diva, make-up was a whole different ball of wax lol

How did you start out on your fashion road?

Love & Peace

Confessions of a Corporate Hamster

Welcome to my new blog

Confessions of a Cute Curvy Girl

I am an Assistant Project Manager by day and sometimes by night i am a Diva who loves fashion, make-up and being a curvy girl.

I have recently stumbled upon Google Reader…which has been a God Send to me.  I love to read blogs but i was horrible at remembering to read them…well thanks to Google Reader they are all in one spot…OH HAPPY DAY!!!!!

But on to my point of this post…. I have been reading a lot of blogs and i have come to one conclusion…. Most folks dont like their day jobs…lol…While most of us are happy to be blessed to be working, but i think many of the bloggers out there feel like this

and we are trapped in one of these That never ending wheel which sometimes seems to get us no where.  The machine i tried to warn my students about when i was an adjunct instructor, some listen lol.

There is nothing wrong with the corporate world it is what it is.  But it leaves many of us wanting more.  And here is where blogging for me comes in….an outlet for my passions, which are art, fashion, makeup and pretty much all things girlie.

I have 3 blogs which i will roll into one *some how with the help of some one* that will cover

Confessions of a Cute Curvy Girl – that is what i am a curvy woman, i have been one for all of my life, i know the issues we face and still face.  I will also toss some fitness and health tips in there, because we do need to be curvy and healthy.   Basically the issues i come across in my life….

Makeup for women of color– I have loved make-up since i was a child, when i would play in my mom’s the consummate tom boy *yeah she had some makeup* i was banned from wearing makeup until i was 16 and then a whole new world was opened to me.  The Eyes Have It is my make-up and beauty blog about make-up, beauty, and the like.  I am focusing on women of color because again that is who i am and what i know…..

Last but not least my Sew Sew Cute Blog that tells the tale of me starting my own clothing biz making clothes for the Curvy Woman, this blog will feature some of my designs and clothes, but it will be more than just that.

So i hope you will join me on my journey…..
