Now As you all may know, I don’t get out much. Between work and grad school, my social life is slim to none right now which is the reason for my lack of posts (I’m sorry). Anywho, last month I was awarded the opportunity to attend a very special event celebrating my forever friend, Mallory Henderson – The Premier Benefit Birthday Bash. Now Mallory is one to celebrate her birthday… ALL. MONTH. LONG. She took the time to coordinate 3 different events to celebrate another…

NO Boyfriend, NO Man friend, NO HUSBAND, no nada. Naturally, I’m a smidge bummed b/c every girl wants to feel a little special on today, well every day, but after 6 years of not having a Valentine… you get used to it honestly lol but that’s really what I wanted to briefly discuss. Singleness and embracing it. It has been a LONG journey to get to where I am today. Now don’t get me wrong, I still get sad about being single sometimes but it’s…

*Cue Juelz Santana’s voice* I’m BAAAACKKKKK. I’m sure some of you have been wondering where the heck I’ve been. I know I kind of just fell off the blog earth and never returned. Well, honey have a seat because this is about to be some shit. SO basically, I LOST MY ENTIRE BLOG CATALOG. EVERY. SINGLE. POST. YEAH. When I tell you I thought my head was playing tricks on me. I was clickin’ through every tab on Godaddy, on Wordpress.com, my website, EVERYWHERE. They…

Have you ever just wished you had someone else’s life? Just constantly comparing yourself to other people and what they have going on? Me too and unfortunately I’ve caught myself doing it a little more often which is really pissing me off, to be completely honest. I KNOW everything I want in this life will come to fruition but with social media, it’s hard not to compare. Scrolling down the timeline all you see is young women your age already hella successful, in assumingly loving…

Heyyy Everyone! Sooo remember a while back when I was super gung-ho about the whole 30 diet? If you need a reminder click here. I was all hyped and ready! All Ready to be summertime fine and stuff. I thought that it was going to be my sure fire way to drop these pounds, despite the restrictions… but oh how wrong I was. I was consistent for maybe 3 weeks, MAYBE a month? WHAT. A. FAIL. To be completely honest with ya’ll, I kept cheating, lol.…

For those who love a good burger and are visiting the Sugarland, TX area, I would definitely hit up Guru Burger and Crepes. I was introduced to this spot by my good friend and co-worker, Aliyah. We were off one day with our other co-worker Ms. Tina and decided to check it out. I’m always down to try new restaurants, so it was a win. The atmosphere inside has a modern feel and the decor is really cute. Additionally, the customer service was great. Our waitress…

This one is for my GRADUATES. YOU DID IT! It’s amazing, isn’t it? You successfully completed your undergraduate career and you should be SO PROUD. All those late nights, tears, COFFEE, study sessions- did I say coffee? ALL of it was worth it. I know when I graduated I was on TOP of the world. Nothing anyone did or say could bring me down, and still can’t tbh. It is truly my proudest accomplishment in my life thus far. While this is a momentous occasion…

Hey Everyone! First, I want to come to give a HUGE THANK YOU to those who checked on me while I was in the hospital. Those who called me texted, visited, snapped, prayed, etc. Y’all are the REAL MVPs and I am so incredibly grateful to have such wonderful family and friends who love me through it all and were willing to stop what they were doing to make sure I was okay. I seriously can’t thank you enough. For those who didn’t know, let…

It’s Hairstylist Appreciation Day! Some of you may have known this day existed but if you didn’t that’s okay I have your back. If you’ve known me for some time, you know I am a licensed stylist and have been since 2011. Unfortunately, I’m not practicing right now but I still want to celebrate the day, plus I keep my license up to date because I paid good money for that joint, so I’m DEFINITELY going to continue to show love every year. I don’t…
