Bali and my loss (Part 1)

April 22, 2019 0 comments

February was a tough month for myself as I was making a lot of changes throughout my routine, getting up early for morning workouts at the gym and getting prepared for my trip to Bali at the end of the month. The second week of the month marked my review at work which I can admit now to you all seemed very off. Switching from leadership seemed to be the norm and I never knew how someone felt my performance was. In the end many questions came up and I decided to wait to find out more since I had my trip very shortly after. I learned later I had good reason for my concerns.

Bali came by fast, here I am with two friends ( I say that loosely now) heading on the plane to Shanghai. Super excited but also super naive to what is to come. The flights were long, legs were cramped as I was in the middle (me trying to be nice for the last time) we come to Bali eventually and landed at this beautiful location in a village on the north part get this…. right on the beach itself. Super beautiful spot.

We took the first day there to relax and get used to the time changes. The second day we headed on our adventure. First a temple, beautiful scenic vies right on the ocean. Next was a rice field and coffee plantation where we got to taste amazing coffee and tea. Stopped at some scenic place with cool bamboo structures to take Instagram photos in (cause you know it’s 2019 and we feel a need to show off) and then finally to the waterfall. The majestic part of the day hanging out in the water and enjoying the sounds and the beautiful nature around us. Glorious day but the hike up was where I think the whole problem started, unknowingly to all until the next days unfolded.

The ladies realizing the distance for the touristy items they desired it was a long haul for a day. I did however tell them all this as I planned very well how to get the most in and everyone hot spot desires. Third day was when everything blew up. Breakfast started and didn’t end so well. My perception is different than others so I was save you my agony during that day but in the end we cancelled plans made for the last day to see a bunch of slide and waterfalls. They ended on a plan that I didn’t want to do and the day was wasting away. Now during this one of these so called friends got in my space and decided to talk down to me, belittle me (like her mom does to her and she uses much vulgar language to describe her mother). Now why on earth would this be ok? Why would she think I am ok with her inviting herself on this trip and then speaking to me as she did. The best was when I asked her to remove herself from my space she played the “I’m not touching you game” and stood outside my door with a smug face.

Now I have realized in this moment I can be more adult than I expected as I shut the door and the curtain and laid back on the bed. Another important realization was that I did not need a friend like this in my life. Someone I felt embarrassed about how she spoke, her disrespect to others and the absolute distaste that I felt over the situation. I decided this was it and I was going to remove this person from my life. Someone I known for 23 years but someone I realize was toxic to me. The poor other girl gets caught up in all this madness and I basically want them gone, since that is what they wanted in the first place. After I meditated, did some yoga, met with an amazing lady who owned the property among other items for the day. It was splendid not to worry about them anymore and I enjoyed the hell out of my vacation for the last two days I had left…. alone though.

Stay tuned for Part 2

New Me in 2019

April 13, 2019 0 comments

In 2019 I am going to do things out of my comfort zone.

I want to move forward and grow as an adult

I want to do something I find scary every day and overcome that fear

I want to have conversations with everyone and learn their story and their life and their family and just show love.

The biggest thing in January for me was not only turning 36 but going to an event that I haven’t been to for a couple years and also put myself in front of the camera again as a model. Not many people know but I always suffering with illness and pain. I have a few autoimmune conditions which can make anybody crazy. Yet the worst does make me gain weight and as a model that can be tough. I also realize I’m 36 and not going to be America’s Next Top Model and I just appreciate anyone who wants to still take a picture of me. Going to this event was special as I had an opportunity to shoot with a photographer and carry out a concept with a good friend of mine. I created two beautiful hats which we will start selling those on the site here and put together some conceptual ideas for outfits.

Everything ended up in the right place and I felt very amazing for how I looked. Now I do not come in saying I am a tiny girl by all means I have started a new Journey here in December where I signed up for a health coach and a gym. I have also put myself on a juice cleanse which I will try to continue every other month until I get myself detox and feeling amazing completely again. This is very big for me, it was huge to show my body as is, even though I still don’t like it. I put myself out there and had fun putting some amazing pieces together, made some beautiful hats and I think there was a couple of those shots I might have even made the photographer happy. It was a great day to say the least and very uplifting for me. Thank you all who were involved.

I want you to know that we are all going through something we may or may not show it so don’t ever take what you see on the surface to be with someone’s heart and I welcome you guys on my health journey this year and my healing journey this year and I look forward to positive change in hopefully everyone’s life.

Blessings to you.  Love and Light.

The Beginning of T.O.M.B

Well here we are and thank you for stopping by. I have so much to share and we have all the time in the world to do so. I wanted to first introduce myself and talk a bit about how The Official Mom Bomb came to be.

I am Alexis King, a mother of 1 amazing son and a cat and dog who are just as needy as the boy. I have recently bit the bullet and bought my first house. I am close to my family and friends and like to think I am pretty laid back and fun. I do however work in the corporate america world with a high stress job and am a very busy lady. Would never change a thing as I learn something new everyday

So why did I start this business?

Well let me tell you why. Our kids are funny, we all have parenting problems, questions and doubts. Our concerns are not just our own as many of us share this but we just don’t openly talk about it. Medical struggles, PTSD, Depression, Sleep deprived, Working too hard, Do NOT Want to do dishes today oh LORD help me!!! Well we all have these feelings as times. On top of keeping up with the house, our kids lives and school struggles, where do we find time for ourselves? I am hoping here you can take a few minutes, get a good laugh, find something new and feel supported and never alone.

I am super lucky to have a great group of women who will be talking about life, from all different aspects. We want to bring resources in your areas, funny stories, advice, fitness help, recipes and of course our amazing Art-illery line that we are super excited to support.

I encourage you all to join in the fun, comment on the blogs and let us know your stories and funny things your kids say. Any great charities in your area we love to hear about as well. Local events for kids and special rates and discounts on fun zones all around so come back and visit often as there is always something new happening with our Moms.

P.S. We support our Dads out there so please do not be fearful of the Bombshells we look forward to hearing from you too!!!
