*Long Entry BUT it’s good, just read it lol*  Hey, Lovelies! Last month,  I went to a fantastic conference called “The Unfiltered Woman.” For starters, let me tell you I had no idea what to expect when it was brought to me. It’s not every day you’re randomly DM’d by someone to attend an event for free, well at least I’m not, but when Bri told me God lead her to me, I didn’t give attending a second thought. For those who have read my previous posts or know…

Hey, Lovelies! I’ve been asked to cover yet another fantastic event here in Houston. For all my art lovers, this one is for you.

More often than not, the idea of moving to a new city is fantastic. New place, new things to do, new people. Some of you may know I’m from St. Louis, MO, but I reside in the big city of Houston, TX. I moved here about three years ago with that exact mindset. “I can’t wait to get out of St. Louis”, “I just want something new,” etc. Forgetting I am introverted and Shy AF sometimes (most times) but I went anyway because I wanted…

Hey, lovelies! It’s been a minute! Between work and school, I rarely wanted to look at a computer when I made it home, but since summer is finally in session, I’m back. And let me tell you, I couldn’t wait. I completed my first year of grad school with a 4.0 (whoop whoop!) But now I need a break lol anyway enough about me, I want to talk about an event I attended recently called Celebration of Babes. For starters, it was SO FUN. I…

There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women. – Kofi Annan, 7th UN Secretary General While women empowerment events are becoming more popular by the day, I never get the chance to attend many, but recently I had the absolute pleasure of attending a brunch, hosted by a woman of many titles, Orobosa Owie. I am SO glad I did because it left empowered me beyond measure. It was held at 024 Grille at the Westin in Memorial, the ambiance was great,…

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 an extraordinary 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 milestone…

Hey Everyone! I’ll post later today about my 2017 and what I expected for myself in 2018, but I wanted to quickly post to wish you all a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR! I pray this year is everything you want and more! I’m claiming 2018 to be the best yet! I hope everyone is having a fantastic time tonight whether you’re inside with family or out with your friends. Most importantly, BE SAFE AND BE AWARE. There will be some craziness on the road, so…
