Kimmink means Kimberly in ink. This site is to share my thoughts. Writing has always been my passion and I hope my words will inspire others.

Trials and Tribulations

Sometimes the struggles you are enduring feel like they will break you. Sometimes the battles you are fighting seem like they will never end. Sometimes the laughter is overcome by the heartache.

Don’t dwell on the hardships because trials and tribulations come to strengthen you. They are meant to teach you. It may hurt but it won’t hurt forever. You may be crying but the tears will eventually stop. It may feel like its impossible but solutions are awaiting you. The moment you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle happens. 



Too often we find ourselves not satisfied. Why is that? Are we too busy desiring things we don’t have instead of cherishing what we do? Are we allowing so many negative thoughts to fill our minds that we don’t have any room for positive ones? Are we setting goals to please others or to please ourselves?

By definition satisfaction is the “fulfillment of one’s wishes, expectations, or needs, or the pleasure derived from this.” What are your wishes? What are your expectations? What are your needs?

Embrace who you are. Enjoy all the things that have been given to you. Learn to make the most out of everything! Satisfaction lies in the effort. What are your endeavours? There is where you will find happiness.

A Happy Life…
is to live with purpose
to say courageous things
to celebrate the simple gifts
to follow your dreams

What is true intimacy?

Surround Yourself with People Who…

Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh. People who help you when you’re in need. People who would never take advantage of you. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.

The inspiration for my attire was the infamous Kim Kardashian. Black on black on black with just a touch of color is such a sexy look! I also made a few changes to this look; instead of open toe shoes I wore closed and I chose a bigger necklace in a different color. 
Steal this style for cheap? I’m wearing a black camisole from Charlotte Russe, a black blazer from H&M, Kardashian Kollection leggings, black suede pumps from ShoeDazzle and jewelry from Lalia Rowe. Entire ensemble for less than $100. 

A Message to ALL Young Mothers

"Being a younger mom means, we met a little early, but I’ll get to love you a little longer. People said my life would end having a baby, but it has just begun. You didn’t take away from my future, you gave me a NEW one." - Unknown 

Embrace the new journey you are about to embark on. Hold your child and let them know you love them

Happy Valentines Day

Valentines day isn’t just about chocolates/gifts from your significant other. It’s about showing the special people in your life just how much they mean to you, including family and friends! Take the time to let someone know you love them! xo


What is beauty?

The dictionary defines beauty as, “a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially sight.” But beauty should not just be defined as something that pleases the eye. Beauty is so much more than that. Beauty is found deep within your soul, in the most sacred place of your heart.

I am challenging all of you to embrace your own inner beauty.

 Set aside any and all physical attributes and focus on your aspirations. Your desires determine true beauty.
