Why hello everyone!
Jasmine is back, but with a new look and feel. That young, weirdy, with random blog posts is not gone, but she has grown up and now has a bit more focus. Yellominijazz was my identity for quite some time, but with all good things, like the show Friday Night Lights and Dunkaroos, they must come to an end.
I have a feeling you guys are going to like Treatjazself. I mean think of all the amazing sequels that were better than the original. Addams Family Values, Toy Story 2, The Dark Knight, some say Magic Mike XXL. I couldn’t bring myself to see it after the first, but anything is probably better than that one.
My prior blog was more about thoughts on every day things, movies, commuter life, controversial topics and family. There will still be some of that, but as the name describes this will be most about treating myself. I absolutely love Parks & Rec, especially Aziz. This is a take on the Treat Yo Self day his character Tom and Donna had, which aired October 13, 2011. I am not only a wife, but a working mother and I feel it’s very important to take care of yourself or you can’t be there for those that need you. This treating of myself can take place in many forms. Most times it’s amazing food, something that I’ve always enjoyed, especially in Chicago. This could be a nice pamper, massage or nails are my drugs of choice. There will be trips with friends (horse-race pictured above), family time and everything in between.
I have to give major credit to my bae, baby (God) momma, my fam bam, Hilary (@hileats). We’ve been thinking of a new name for me for quite some time and she came up with the gem. She also took this photo of me. What would I do without my Hil <3 I’m hoping to have some collabs with Hil and others, so watch out!
Thanks again for sticking with me. I know it’s been years since my last post, but I will try to do better.
