Ideas?

Hey Kaybies! 

Quick apology for not posting in forever! I’m actually sick right now and work has been kicking my butt. Nevertheless, I am so happy to see some more people on here… it gives me motivation to express myself even more. 

Soooooooooooo WE are gonna do an ice breaker! Sometimes I have ideas for posts but I want to be versatile. So I’m asking for your opinions. We’ll call the game “My 2 Sents.” (You’ll see why the spelling in a minute). 

Here are the rules!

1. Look at the 5 category tabs… like recipe or whichever.

2. You comment your name and your 2 “Sents” meaning 2 sentences of what you want me to post about, (get it? Ha, ha… ok let me stop) for whichever category (or even outside the category you choose and how often you’d like to see posts… once a day? A week? A year? To infinity and beyond?? 

3. Then I’ll collect the ideas and post them in a SCHEDULE!! 

That’s right y’all! I’m coming up with a schedule and y’all’s  ideas would help so I can post a little more frequently and you know what’s coming up.

⚠️ PSA! The makeup post is coming⚠️ We’re gonna do that this coming week and it’ll be more like a first impressions since half of it I haven’t opened. Pinky swear. If I don’t post it this week I owe everyone $5.

I’m so excited to see how this game works out! Love y’all!

Of course it wouldn’t be a post from me without a meme haha

And congrats to all of you guys who just ended testing and school! This^ pic is done and over with!!

Is It Really, Though?

Hey Kaybies! I can’t believe we’re already in April! Time flies!

Anywho, part one of my Too Faced haul will be up REALLY soon! I’ve been working a lot but haven’t forgot and I want it to be top quality for y’all!

8E6EB8CA-6D68-4A64-994F-A1A387FAAF24
Everything I’m telling y’all about will be in my hauls but here’s a sneak peek

However today’s post is a question that I want y’all to give me feedback on. Like a straight up opinion because I wanna know how y’all feel.

83647106-837E-4A14-945E-545F09976E0F
This always cracks me up but I need y’all to be this honest lol

Anyone who knows me knows I have a very strong affinity for men. And that I go through crushes like a roll of toilet paper. And usually I say “no THIS one is different”… and then the guy turns out to be a jerk, rude, not interested, taken, a piece of crap… or all 5 at the same time. However, there’s a particular cutie I’ve been asking close friends and family about. It’s a predicament (if you will) that I’m facing. And hopefully I’m not alone and some of you face it too. But I’ll speak about it in hypotheticals first.

So there is a girl. Let’s name her Kiara (I just watched Lion King 2 clips, don’t judge me). And she likes this Kovu guy (again, Lion King II).  He seems dedicated to his job, his passions, and his looks🤤. However, it’s rumored that Kovu is thinking of going to the military. Which puts Kiara on a time clock. Kiara wants to make a move, but he never seems to be alone so Kiara’s like “Bet, I’ll get his number”… but she has no idea how and she’s already embarrassed herself in front of him by doing a 180 spin when she saw him walking to the little lion’s room.

Now that’s the situation. Many of my family and friends say that it’s the man who should make the first move… but IS IT REALLY THOUGH?!  I mean I’m probably the most hopeless romantic you’ll ever meet. And in a perfect world, I’d flirt coyly and wait to be asked and then he’d ask me on a date and we’d get married and have beautiful babies… but this ain’t Heaven! This ain’t Hallmark… and it dang sure ain’t perfection. I feel as though this is the optimal situation, but sometimes you have to take the first steps. For heaven’s sake, I’m running out of eggs!

An excellent point was brought to me that the Bible says “he who findeth a wife, findeth a good thing” (Proverbs 18:22)… not SHE who finds a husband. Meaning I should wait on God to bring the good man to me. And this really is a tough point to argue with because I believe it. Butttttt all I’m trying to do is get the ball rolling for God… then he can do the rest how he wants. I’ve also been told, it’s the 21st century and I should “shoot my shot”… even though I keep tellin y’all I can’t shoot to save my life.

My question to you, my Kaybies, is “Is it ALWAYS the man’s job to ask first?” or more bluntly, “How should I go about asking this man for his number, if at all? (And helpful “hows” entail what to wear, a script with my lines highlighted in pink, etc.)

Please respond via leaving a comment below, Instagram (kinayabrown_), or Snapchat (listed in contact methods on page)! I thank you in advance for all advice!

I appreciate y’all reading once again, and can’t wait to hear from you!

Sincerely, Kay~

2 Sentence Update

Sincerely, Kay~

Wait What? Q&A? And Status Update!

So I’ll make this post brief but I wanted to hop on here and apologize to y’all for not posting in so long. Not gonna make excuses. Just wanted to let y’all know I got you and I am not dead.

A perfect meme that describes my life EXACTLY so I thought I’d share with y’all lol

Now I’ve been wanting to do a “getting to know you Q&A” post for a while and honestly I appreciate those who sent in questions but at this point I only have 5. I would like to have at least 20-25. They will all be anonymous so either send through my contact page or via social media, because I REALLY want to get this up for you guys! If we hit at least 20 questions by Friday, the post will be up by Saturday! I appreciate those who are reading! If you appreciate my work, tell your friends! I love networking and people in general! Send in those questions via contact page on here, via snap, or Instagram! Love y’all!

Top 20 Playlist: Pick me up!

What’s up Kaybies? I want to apologize for taking a week to write my next post! A whole bunch of crap happened (especially today was some #BULL)… But if you’ve ever studied DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) then you know there’s a skill called “opposite action”. Opposite action is literally self explanatory. You do the opposite action of the unhelpful thing you want to do. For instance,  I would LOVE to lay in bed all day and sleep… and you bet your smoked Gouda I could do it too. BUT opposite action is intentionally getting up every morning and going to work and socializing with these annoying yet interesting creatures called people. And that’s what I’m doing right now.

So this post was inspired by my desk buddy/amazing coworker. Her name is Nel Belle 🦋 (at least that’s what I call her and yes, she’s as pretty as she sounds). After having a day full of bull, we talked about blog topics (amongst other things) and she suggested writing a playlist. I sure as hell needed some pick me up music that I’m actually listening to as I write. I’m going to be honest, my taste in music is all over the place so hopefully everyone finds a few songs (⚠️disclaimer: YES there will be trap music, YES I will link the clean version). I try not to listen to love songs when I need a pick me up because they just remind me of how alone I am lol.  So without further ado, let’s get into it!

20. Weightless- All Time Low

I know this doesn’t SOUND like a pick me up song from the title and honestly I listen to this song when I’m upset too. But trust me, just dance around the room like a 2 year old and don’t listen to the words too much. Except my favorite line, “maybe it’s not my weekend, but it’s gonna be my year”. Listen to that and embed it in your brain.

19. Energy- Drake

*no clean version of this song on YT but def recommend *

Because I do have enemies. Got a lotta enemies tryna drain me of my energy! Just can’t let them 😏

18. Best I Ever Had- Drake

I just feel like my baby is singing to me in this song… plus I am the best anyone has ever had. Fake friends, guys, and all others who don’t realize that are just stupid. #sorrynotsorry #Kaybymentality

17. Snap Yo Fingers- Lil John and the East Side Boyz

Because sometimes you just need to do your step, and know that YOU can do it ALL by YO SELF!!

16. Money Baby- K Camp ft. Kwony Cash

DEFINITELY make sure if you’re under 18 you’ve got the clean version. But this song is just care free and while I do almost NONE of the activities mentioned by K camp, I do like that money, Kayby!

15. Here’s to Never Growing Up- Avril Lavigne 

Again I like variety, and this song just has that 90’s kid vibe and really… we’re never gonna change!

14. Buzzin- Mann

This song is the epitome of pick-you-up-no-matter-what-mood-you’re-in AND is just so fun to dance to and is probably in my top 10 favorite songs of all time *cue my sister doing the Kevin Alston from The Bomb Digz dance*

13. Got Money- Lil Wayne and T-peezy (T-Pain y’all)

One of the reasons why Lil Wayne is ONE OF the best rappers of all time (fight me if you don’t agree) is not only because he changed the game for our generation, but because he LITERALLY doesn’t give one F about what people say… And TBH that’s how I get a pick me up. I listen to people who don’t care about what others think, and I start doing the same (I make it snow, I make it flurry…I make it all back tomorrow don’t worry! – Weezy)

12. Feeling Myself- Nicki Minaj ft. Yoncé

Just because this song is all abut feeling yourself and dismissing all of those irrelevant to my life (these Chanel bags is a bad habit… but male or female it make no difference I stop the world… carry on 😘)

11.  Everyday We Lit- YFN Lucci ft. PnB Rock

Because we truly should find a reason to be lit everyday🌖 (I swear I ain’t never expected it like this, now I’m getting rich, that’s why everyday we lit… you can’t tell me ISH!!)

10. Get Low- Lil John & the East Side Boyz

If you can’t twerk and get DOWN to this song and make your problems go away, at least for a minute… we need to talk. To the windoooooooooooooooow, to the wall! To all, skeet skeet!

9. Blame It- Jamie Foxx and T-Pain

Although I’ve never drunk alcohol, this song has one of my favorite empowering verses and my favorite auto tunes EVER. To my independent mamas who can buy their own bottles, if you lookin like a MODEL when the broke fellas holler tell em BYE (and if that’s your case… you’re definitely a Kayby)!

8. Bad and Boujee- Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert

You know… young rich people… you know sum we ain’t never really had no old money… we got a WHOLE LOTTA new money though… RAINDROP!!! (Now y’all KNOW it wouldn’t be a post from me without a Migos reference)

7. Before I Let Go- Maze ft. Frankie Beverly

You make me happy… this you can bet… swear oml this song is in my top 3 favorite family reunion/cookout/ wedding/you better know this songs. Just listen to it and I dare you not to smile or tap your foot.

6. Bounce Back- Big Sean

DEFINITELY a great reset song  for the morning. Last night took an L, but tonight I bounce BACK! Like you can’t HELP but me uplifted by this song #IwokeupinBEASTMODE

5. FDB- Young Dro

This song has gotten me through many bad days… can’t quote much but it’s great if you’re frustrated and just need to scream FDB about something (or someone 😒)

4. Pull Up Wit a Stick- SahBabii ft. Loso Loaded

This was probably my second favorite song of 2017… just so upbeat… no real meaning… just relaxing with a bunch of brrrr brrrrts!

3. First Day Out- Tee Grizzley

My ABSOLUTE favorite song of 2017… it’s so deep and just reminds me anything is possible and that people struggle a lot more than I remember sometimes… Especially my people (“Just bury me in the water with my ancestors… They knew death was better than bondage”) #WAKANDAFOREVER. You ever went to trial and fought for your life? BUT WHEN THAT BEAT DROPPPPPPS!!

2. God’s Plan- Drake

I am pretty speechless when it comes to God’s Plan. I just feel such a connection to the lyrics in this song, and I just feel like this song is so fire… it would be a crime to not include it… Drake mixtapes are lifeeeeee!

1! Where Everybody Knows Your Name- Gary Portnay

This song is a personal favorite, since it’s the theme song to my favorite TV show ever created!! It always cheers me up and sometimes you really just wanna go where everybody knows your name 😍.

Well y’all… it’s late… but let’s make it through this next week of finding new jobs, dealing with significant others, putting up with the Crazies, and all the hammers life tries to throw at us! Love you!!!

Sincerely, Kay~
