Get To Know Me!

Hi world. My name is Shekeita. My Endo friends call me LaLa…its short for my middle name Latrice. I am 24 years old and I currently live in Atlanta, GA where I was born and raised. I am a Makeup Artist and I honestly love what I do. I have a wonderful partner, Christina that I love and adore. We have a fur baby(cat) Izzy that we raise together. I am one of the lucky ones to have a partner that understands how much Endo-Endometriosis can affect my life.

I have struggled with Endometriosis since I was 11 years old. I have been through the ups and downs of pelvic pain, back pain as well as all the medications. Luckily for me I don’t just suffer from Endometriosis (hear the sarcasm). I also have Thyroid Cancer , Scoliosis and Chronic Fatigue. Funnily enough none of my other family members seem to have any of these conditions. Yay for me (more sarcasm)!

I am completely obsessed with nail polish. I own nearly 300 and I probably change my manicure about 4 times a week. I love makeup and fashion….especially shoes! Give me a Celine bag over a engagement ring any day! Okay I kid I kid…nope I dont! Hehehe I really love being able to express myself through what I wear on my body.

A few random facts about me:

*I am really silly–like I snort at corny jokes!

*I love to watch murder movies like Hannibal or Kiss the girls.

*I miss roller skating…four wheels all the way!

* I am a huge sap when it comes to sad or romance movies.

*I am a Pisces with lots of attitude.

*I stay up to 5 am watching re runs of Criminal minds or Good times. Please dont ask!

    • Hi Lela!

      Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I am so sorry I have not updated on my results. Please be patient with me. I have since had another surgery for other issues and I am in the process of recovering and prepping for a third surgery. I hope to have an update up in the near future. If you follow me you will be emailed when I post it. xo
