Today

Personal Growth & Goals, R.O.E. Need To Know

Sunny Skies

The heat in Louisiana contributes to or is the root of, my SAD (seasonal affective disorder). Despite the temperature of 95 degrees, I dread August, I feel the most like myself today, than I have in three months. That’s a lovely feeling.

I appreciate days like today because I hold onto them. I know there is a way to a better position in life and I hope to achieve that within myself. The battle with me must cease soon because it no longer serves a purpose. It’s time I live to love and relax and stop. Pause. That was one of my words for entering 2019 and I’ve derailed but slowly I shall revive myself from the numbness. As only I can.

I give myself permission to lay in bed for the rest of the day and watch a movie or documentary – like I have done the past two days – without feeling guilty!!!

Catch ya on the flip side

Revenge of eve- blogger bash

Win or lose, I’ve already won! Simply being nominated was winning for me. So before the results are announced I would like to let y’all know I am forever grateful for your support and encouraging words. Y’all have fueled my journey.

Revenge of Eve

Finding my voice has never been a challenge. My delivery…a different story. When your internal voice is cruel, the tendency to portray what you mean can be easily misconstrued as abrasive. It may as well be but because of you, I have learned that speaking kindly to myself has the ability to change my whole perspective on life. I call that a win!!

Thank you to each of you for every comment, like, email, donation, and follow. You can go to bed at night knowing that you have singlehandedly helped someone on their personal improvement journey and I hope to not let us down.!!..

OMG!! I’m Not Sure I can Accept ‘Em

R.O.E. Need To Know

Exactly what the title says…

On behalf of Revenge of Eve, I would like to apologize for the unsightly ads that are being plastered across, on top, and in between paragraphs.!!!

I understand having a free site comes with less than desirable options but couldn’t they limit the horrendous display of hairy fuck’n legs advertising heart attack prescription medication?

Seriously, Word Press??? You have got to do better!!

Are you aware you have stiff competition?? While you are at #1 it doesn’t last if you continue to sneak in costs, take over someones aesthetically designed work with ads that have nothing in common with the sites purpose – Not much else for me to say except I apologize to my followers for not managing my finances well but as you know, I am a work in progress.

Presenting-An Introduction-Revenge of Eve

An Introduction

Louisiana Love, R.O.E. Need To Know

The final!

Or is it???

In an effort to keep my insanely awesome, smart, and talented readers informed {and myself organized} I introduce categories as they debut.

My original intentions were to have a few categories that evolve with my site and if I am correct today’s category makes # 9 on R.O.E. For all intents and purposes I wanted to have a formal description for when I describe my idea of an unconventional lifestyle niche. What better way than using R.O.E.’s categories to do so?!

There has been one category introduced that has not had a published post. Ma & Me is an essential category in my life but because of recent conflict, I have yet to have something worth writing. Sure, I could have published a many posts bitching and complaining but that doesn’t help me to resolve the conflicts when they arise. We are working through things the only way we know how but I will say this…my approach has been significantly different this go round.

Could this mean what I think it means?? Am I growing up?


Each day I am able to recognize growth in myself. Whether this is in my interpersonal relationships, the relationship I have with myself, or in general…I can see it. I mean…I don’t mean to toot my own horn but its time I give myself credit because that is part of my growth as well. I also give credit where credit is due.

Because of You

I have the courage to fight.

Because of y’all, I see potential.

And best of all, because of y’all,

I believe I’m worth it because ya know what??? I’m not so bad after all.

When I first began Revenge of Eve my tagline was:

On a journey guided by a broken compass.

And that couldn’t be any truer but I embrace that now. I know that if I make a mistake, that doesn’t make me a mistake. I know that getting off track doesn’t mean all of my efforts are a waste, that is part of the journey.

These days I am much easier on myself and I also congratulate myself for a job well done. I never knew this to be possible but enough about how wonderful I am…😂


Depending on how long you have been following my fumbles you may or may not be aware that I live in Louisiana. The boot state at the bottom of the map (United States). While my state may not rank in the top 10 for highest test scores or best places to visit, it ranks #1 in my eyes. Sure, collectively we can improve but when it comes to culture, food, and fun – we outrank any state!!

Revenge of Eve

Adding Louisiana Love as a category to R.O.E. allows me to highlight the things I love about my home state, learn some new stuff and share some interesting facts with y’all!

I can barely contain my excitement!!

Pssst…be on the look out for the first post in this category!

R.O.E. 411

R.O.E. Need To Know

Last month I thought my WordPress plan was set to renew but that is only done when you have a card on file. My plan wasn’t due to expire until the 30th of May and while I had the money to renew last month, I decided not too for a few reasons.

Revenge of Eve
  • I am unsure of which plan will best suit my needs for the next twelve months
  • I have not decided on my set plan of attack for selling my memory keeping journals and journaling packets
  • I haven’t weighed my options about the benefits of having a paid for plan verses a free site considering I do not have a plan mapped out for selling things online
  • I have missed too much work to invest in something without seeing a return immediately
  • My only fret is that my design layout will be affected and I am not so certain I will invest the time to get it how I want it due to when I do decide having to invest the time on the new site
  • I have stepped back from blogging and reading blogs daily to avoid burnout
  • My personal life needs attention
  • The domain remains mine because it was purchased separately and at a later date from the plan so I do not fear the loss of it
  • I want to be more intentional with all I do from here on out
  • Direction, routine, and scheduling are things high on my short list of priorities and sticking to them is my biggest priority
  • A free site is suitable for the time being and forces me to establish an action plan in regards to my desires to work from home
  • I am unsure if I want to air my personal life in the same space I want to develop a professional relationship with customers
  • I may use a free site for personal and launch a professional site using a paid for site…the problem there lies not being able to transfer my following to my business site but having my followers on my free site allows them the choice to follow if my business is targeted at their individual interests
  • I’ve attempted operating two sites before and one suffered and the other never quite took off but in comparison to beginning my first site, it did well
  • I do not want to abandon my R.O.E. as my web persona but I also want to be respected professionaly
  • I have no clue what direction I want to go in professionally speaking
  • I am working on a few projects so my time is limited

Did I say a few reasons? Lol… It’s more than a few and I need more time to sort things out. The purpose of this post was to a. receive feedback and suggestions from my loyal followers b. to have my thoughts/questions/concerns listed out for reference c. to inform y’all that the overall design of R.O.E. is soon to change due to the fact that final decisions have not been made. Free themes are limited to chose from and if I am honest, I’m not pressuring myself to invest the time it takes to design a website without knowing my next move. If you have any insight into the operations of the WordPress business plan, Etsy, or Shopify please let me know your experience in the comments. Or do you use a self-hosted platform? If so, how much behind the scenes work is required? It is difficult and much more time consuming? Any feedback is great feedback!!

No. Hold-Up, Wait…

R.O.E. Need To Know

A New Day.

With new information…

Yesterday I published a post and turned my computer off out of shame.

I was quickly reminded that stress serves no purpose and I began working on an order Beckie has placed. Later in the evening I rebooted my computer with no expectations and a plan.

A plan you say??

Revenge of Eve

All the while I was crafting, my brain churned… “what can I do for those who donate?”. Allow me to clarify, please. It never crossed my mind to reach out because I think I write such engaging, evergreen content that my platform deserves a paid for plan. All I thought about was my followers yet the way I concluded the post, it seemed all I was concerned about was myself. I apologize.

In fact, I was in such a panic I didn’t stop to consider the possibility of y’all being transferred, again, back to a free site. So… needless to say when I logged back on, Ashley saved the day by bringing it to my attention that it may be possible to do so and guess what??? It is!! Yay!!! So beginning April 30, 2019, Revenge of Eve will look differently-design wise-and that’s ok. All that means is I can save for a business plan to include a link to my shop!

If I look at it positively I see…new place of my own, brand new shop for selling stuff and a new, more professional yet me (lol) website with a new amazing vibe!! I totally dig that.

Ok now the details are worked out….back on break I go. Want the fresh 411? Well? Click the button (as I dangle a clock on a chain side to side in front of you…)

Thanks for being awesome! xoxo ~

Sad but True: R.O.E. News

R.O.E. Need To Know

Updated 4.5.2019 – Thank you, Ashley, for your donation of $10 and for helping me figure it out. This problem has been solved ❤

Due to recent events, I am saddened to say that I cannot afford to pay the up-coming annual fee that allows me to operate Revenge of Eve.

Revenge of Eve

The annual fee of $97.00 is due no later than April 25th.


Because of a recent backslide in my mental health, I was forced to take a week off from work. There are no paid days off for those of us who work as service workers in the restaurant industry. On top of that, the hourly rate at which we are paid – $2.13, doesn’t compensate for any lost time acquired. Basically, I sell my personality in order to provide an income for my daughter and myself. When I am experiencing a mental episode I am unable to pretend that it does not exist. The timing in which this episode occurred couldn’t have come at a worse time; site renewal month.

As it stands, I owe $300.00 for March’s bills which I aim to pay, plus late fees, this week along with my car insurance and storage unit bills. This totals $575.00, not including late fees.

My living situation will also change in the upcoming two months. My daughter and I will get a small space of our own. April has always been the hardest month of the year for myself mentally for various reasons. I was hoping to change that this year but so far, yes only one day in, it isn’t looking so good. But I will say this… I am grateful to have a job, a roof over my head for the time being, and the ability to stay connected using my newsletter.


If you find it possible to donate, all donations will go to keep this site afloat.

If you wish to donate more than $5, you can do so by opting to purchase multiples by changing the number in the box allocated. This will be done in $5 increments ( number in box: 4=$20 example).

Paper packs will be available in two sizes and will include vintage papers, vintage ads, designer paper, cardstock and embellishments. No two packs will be the same. Want a custom theme pack? Chat with me to see if I have what you want!

Finding the silver lining in this situation, I will not lose the domain because it was purchased later than the plan. Please keep an eye out for postings that will offer paper product packages that can be used in your journals for creating beautiful pages or for use in your art journal projects. Because I currently do not have a store for such sales, purchasing a paper package will require you to send me your mailing address via email once payment is processed.

Shipping costs will be calculated into the price of each paper pack except for international shipping. Dependent on international shipping fees, it may not be worth it for you the consumer. Waiting until I have the store up and running may be your best bet for purchasing my products. Also, the prices reflected here are not necessarily the prices of my products in the future. Custom package prices differ.

I will do everything possible to keep things going here on Revenge of Eve. Blogging has been my saving grace and I fear that if it goes, so will I.
