Yeka is one of my favorite bloggers, because she works hard at creating content and supporting other bloggers. She’s doing a month long blog post challenge. Props to her because it isn’t easy. Head over to see what she’ll be writing about this month and show her some love.

What better way to kiss 2017’s butt out than to reminisce on the amazing and not so amazing things that happened. This way we welcome the new year with a big heart ready to fill up with greater things than our expectations. This Blog Challenge is all of that. […]

A Break from the Routine

Whether you’re frustrated with your natural hair journey, or you just find yourself too busy too keep up with your regular hair care routine, taking a break from your hair every now and then can be good for you and it.

REBLOG: Use What Ya Got – Rowana Abbensetts

I very much relate to this post on building your latent skillsets and having them come together to create opportunity and positive change. It’s always an encouragement to see a lot of us making moves and seeing growth. Rowana was one of the first people I started following for self care and wellness and in that time she has created a magazine, had meetups, and professional collaborations–oh and she wrote a book. Click over to read the whole thing.

2017 has been good to me as an entrepreneur. I have had the opportunity to unlock new skills through quite a few amazing professional experiences. My favorite highlights would be meeting readers at the Spoken Black Girl Launch Party, doing PR and media coverage for the Miss Black USA Pageant, and representing SBG at my local health fair. I am grateful to the many venues and organizers who invited me to speak about mental health and self-care. It has been a year of service and transformation.

Kindergarten Hair Disaster

Bad Hair Day

My kindergarten teacher said it looked cute. It did not. Everyone else thought it was funny. I showed up at school with half my hair in one of those bobble hair ties and the other half was a free, bushy mess. Imagine seeing a kid like that. You’d wonder how she managed to leave the house that way.
