So, here we are in 2018. Is it just me or did 2017 quickly go by? Time isn’t waiting for anyone. So many ups and downs from the previous year, but holding my head up ready to receive the good of 2018. Continue reading
Hey hey hey you beautiful souls, and welcome back to the Petite Land. So I hope everyone has had a productive and blessed week so far. So ready for the weekend.
Any who, today I wanted to talk about your body and your style. We’ve all fallen prey to wearing certain items of clothing just because they’re comfortable, and not necessarily our style. Continue reading
Hey you beautiful souls! Thank you so much for taking time out to to stop by today; truly means a lot. Today we are celebrating something Special!!! It’s our Anniversary!!
You don’t hear of many millennials these days who have made it to ten years, yet alone five in marriages. It’s always a blessing to see and hear of those marriages that have lasted 20,25, 40, and even 50+ years. That’s the type of marriage I’m looking to have, and being an example for my baby girl. Marriage is a blessing, and when done the right way can withstand any storm. Marriage takes work, and you put in work for what you love.
Wow! Let me start by saying thank you for visiting today. Welcome to the land of Petite Latoya!
Never in a million years did I think this would be happening today. I told myself that I would never start a blog. Tada!! Never say never, right?!? Here I am writing my very first blog post.
Thank you so much for taking time to stop by today!! It’s been over 4 months since I’ve started Instablogging, and a week since I’ve started my first blog. So today I’m talking about some of the things I’ve learned along this journey called Instablogging. I’m not going to lie, it was nerve wrecking. Here we go!
1. Learn to Unplug

Discipline, something I thought I had, but quickly realized I didn’t. Posting constantly and making sure I had the right pictures in hopes of gaining followers. Getting bogged down by the things I couldn’t control. The more I was glued to the Gram, the more I felt overwhelmed. After an aha moment, I realized that a break was much-needed. That’s exactly what I took a break. Breaking away to gather my thoughts, and just to regroup! Unplugging allowed me to see and think clearly, and get back to what mattered most (me and my family). It also helped me to be here writing my first blog post.
2. Know & Stick to Your “why”
If any of you have listened to any of the Ted Talks, you would know why the “why” is so important. When I began Instablogging, I told myself that I would stick to the “plan”. That went quickly out the window when I began to notice those accounts with thousands and tens of thousands of followers. Quickly beginning to follow those concepts thinking it’s going to help me. I immediately allowed myself to be moved by what I saw. This only led to discouragement, and the feeling of defeat. My objective was to never work with brands, but that got lost in the hype that I saw. Before starting know “why” you are doing this and stick to it. Continue reading
