Post-Yoga With Suave Body Wash

Yoga during the summer is like intentionally laying out in a 100 degree weather on the beach without a towel, sunscreen, and water. I'm really not exaggerating. I before to Bikram Yoga during the Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons because I'll walk out into cool air. Although yoga is great for my body, sometimes I'd find my self rubbing dead skin cells off post-workout AND after taking a shower. That's when I discovered Suave Body Wash.

It's Not What It's *Post* To Be

Let's be real for a second. Being a freelancer isn't as golden as we all see on Instagram regardless of how many "overnight life/business" coaches you see popping up making a "supposed" 7-figures after a month.

Watcha Matcha!

After struggling the first 14 days, I've finally created and maintained a routine that stuck. Every morning, I'd say my affirmations, hop in the shower, and immediately sit on my mat with my journal, Love Louder by Preston Smile (it's SO GOOD), and a glass of smoothie or cup of tea. My BFF has been pestering me about this Matcha business, so instead of my routine tea/smoothie, I've replaced it with Organic Matcha DNA

I'd like to thank Eddie Glaude for taking the time to write a piece that not only speaks to the truths of being a Black person in America but also reminding us that we need to do what's necessary for change. Receiving this book at the time I did I would say correlates with the term "serendipity". I'm finally accepting that I am a Black, Queer woman and immigrant in a country ...

Reasons to Visit Wilmington

To be honest, when I found Wilmington on the map I was pretty curious. The first thing I said to my bestie was, "tiny towns scare me". Have you ever watched those cute little towns in a horror movie and you thought to yourself, "well, I'd never". Well, I did and I absolutely loved every minute of my time there.
