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…

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…

To the rest of the world, it’s PI DAY … (Whatever) but to everyone in St. Louis it’s IT’S 314 DAY! Welcome to St. Louis, Missouri; a city that is normally in the spotlight for the negative from our high crime rates to Ferguson ( YES, I STILL get questions about it.) Looking from the outside in some people would think STL is a shithole, but to be completely honest it isn’t. On THIS day – March 14th– we celebrate our city, THE POSITIVES & THE CULTURE, as a community.…

Hey Everyone! Sadly, the time has come. It’s the last day of our month, Black History Month. Even though it’s coming to a close I hope we continue to celebrate 365. Just because we are given the shortest month of the year doesn’t mean we are CONFINED to it. I urge you all to continue to celebrate us and the culture because this Black History Month was LIT. Black People Won Awards Black Panther broke the box office plus a whole lot more. Just LIT.…

Heyyyy Everyone! From the title, you can see what this is going to be about. I had the most awesome opportunity to be a guest host on LeHautePaire Podcast (The Hot Pair). My beautiful friend and blogger sister Jaz (Check her out at Le Haute Jaz!) invited me to come on their “Girl Talk” segment and I had a ball. To be completely honest, I was lowkey nervous. I never liked hearing my voice my recorded, despite people telling me I have a voice for…

IT’S HERE, 2-0-1-8. Can you believe it? me? BARELY. It felt like 2017 came and went in a blink of an eye and tbh, I’m okay with that. My 2017 was decent, VERY DECENT. Lots of highs, some lows but I made it and that’s what really matters right? right. I’ve gained some friendships, ended some friendships, learned, loved, and lost so 2018 came right on time but BABY LET ME TELL YOU… This year will be THE YEAR for me, I’m claiming it in the name of Jesus.…
