As a business owner who's constantly on-the-go and looking into various income streams while maintaining a client lists, sometimes I forget about the important things, like safety. When I say safety, I'm not referring to looking both ways before crossing the street or ...Read More
Recently, I found myself trying and testing products for the Fall. Reason being, Fall is weird for me. My skin isn't too dry but it doesn't get super oily. Yet, my skin acts up longer than usual. I end up with dark spots and circles for weeks on end and I find myself constantly wearing makeup - something I've been trying not to do.Read More
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.Read More
My skin is very important to me and being on the road for so long and often, I felt like I've neglected it in so many ways. So what did I do? I blocked off a full 24-hours just for me and my skincare date and made sure to include Shea Moisture's set of African Black Soap Bath & Body and Skincare Collection.Read More
My hair is a big part of my personality as well as my life. I started this natural process right after a terrible break-up and trying to find hope in a dark place in my life, so it's only fair to give my hair the affection it deserves. I decided to try my hair self-care with Shea Moisture.Read More
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. It's not always free flights in first class, and overnights in the top suite of the most luxurious hotels.Read More
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.Read More
As a photographer, normally, I'd focus on other photographers and learn from them. I'd learn their techniques, understand the mistakes they've made in hopes of not repeating it, as well as taking their techniques and improving it.
With Portrait Revolution, it's from the perspective of ...
Lately, I've been taking the necessary time needed to reflect on life, my life to be exact. I started reading this book "Love Louder" by Preston Smiles and it was exactly what I needed. See, I was in limbo for the last 90-120 days, unsure of a lot of things and after much self-reflection, doubt and fear lurked...Read More
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 ...Read More
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.Read More
