When Depression knocks at our door!

It’s been a while since I have written here…things have been hectic but in a good way, I have been up and down the last few months in shoots, traveling, and writing my Newspaper Column among other things. So glad to be here at Curvy Girl on a Budget again. This is a very special blog, the topic is a very serious one. It is not about Fashion Shows, Models, Makeup etc, it is about Depression… Depression can happen to anyone, even people who seem to have it all. It takes over your mind, body and soul.

Staying connected to our mom is so important so we make sure to text, call and video chat with her all the time. Alot of the time her phone calls … [Read more...]
