REBLOG: December Blog Challenge – Yeka

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.

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.

I saved this post as soon as I read it the other day.

Please click through to read Melissa’s touching post on her experiences.

Hey guys, This is a very different and extremely personal post. But I feel that it is important for me to talk about my experience, maybe it might help someone else…

“What’s wrong with you?”

Four and a half years ago, I used to think completely differently to how I think now…

I was super excited to find this tutorial, as I never thought of doing the waterfall braid on natural hair. But doesn’t hers look stunning?
