Reflections, Update & Giveaway!

Hello loves! I just wanted to drop in and do a different kind of post today as we near the close of the year! Get a little personal with ya’ll you know? 2013 has been some kinda crazy and it gets greater everyday so I can only imagine what’s in store for 2014!

New YearI started my blog in 2013 from extremely humble beginnings. Somewhere between my passions, loves, and 9-5…I wrote about what makes me happy. Pretty things. This Brown Queen was my happy place. With each post I grew more focused. I think doing something that you love everyday gives you a clearer sense of self. Doing what you love, what makes you happy, everyday kinda changes a person. You start to view things differently. I realized that, there were no limits. No boundaries. And my mindset took me on a new path. The one where I did what I wanted to do. Since starting my blog I’ve opened myself up to situations, places, and people I never thought I’d connect with before and I love it! Meeting so many inspirational women (both online and off) who truly embody This Brown Queen has been a tremendous blessing. I’m so excited for the direction of the blog and as always I really want to thank all my readers and supporters! I’m so serious, every single view, like, comment mean so much to me!

My mantra for 2014 is No Excuses. I feel like for so long I made excuses not to do things I truly wanted to do for whatever reason. Fear, uncertainty, and so on. I’ve overcome so many personal boundaries this year by simply living life with No Excuses and I fully intend on pushing myself to my limits and beyond!

And so I thought, what better way to share the wealth and pretty? A giveaway! Thanks to  Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils, I have an abundance of hair products! So for my very first giveaway one of you can win Aunt Jackie’s Curl La La Defining Curl Custard and Aunt Jackie’s In Control Moisturizing & Softening Conditioner.

I am going to do more yoga classes. I have a home practice but i do miss my fellow yogis. I plan to plan more meals so I do not have the excuse of preparing dinner. I also want to read more and catch-up on books recommended by friends.
