April First…

Happy Wednesday everyone. How have you been doing?  Are you making through the stay at home orders &  the social distancing? For me, I trying to make it. Some day are certainly better than others. To be honest, I am so happy to be in a new month because March has been the longest year in history. We are certainly in a new norm now, and I actively trying to get adjusted to it all. So I happy to get back to blogging! On today’s post I am reflecting, sharing my personal goals, latest fashion style & trends, and a brief blog note for the month of April.. As of lately, I have been trying to find many ways  to keep me calm and ease my anxiety in March.  I have been at Club Quarantine almost every night with Dj DNice, I meditate with a few locals LIVE , and I join the TikTok craze. In this time I definitely trying to keep my mind calm. March was so no way near what I expect it to be, however I am going to make the best of April.

March First…

Happy Monday everyone! How was the month of February for you? Did you enjoy your extra day? Well the month of February treated me pretty good. On today’s post I am reflecting, sharing my personal goals, latest fashion style & trends, and a brief blog note for the month of March. For me, February seem like it was the longest month ever. It was good but certainly long. Fashion wise I tried some new brands; those pieces were great. On the blog tip, it was the one of the most successful blog months I had.  And personally, I was a social butterfly. I went on date. Hehe lol. Overall it was a great month and I was not sweating over the small stuff, just living life.  Related : February First… So the month of March  is going to be lit. I am being intentional and speaking positivity into the universe. To add to the “lituation” it is Women’s History Month.  Yass sis. What a time to be a woman;  a black woman at that.  Let the month of March commence. Yet again, I have some great content plan, and fashion on the horizon. Let’s go March. Fashion Note It is …

February First…

Happy Monday! How was your January for? As most of y’all would say “January was a trial, I’m going start again in February”. Sis, I get it! January towards the end was really heavy. It certainly left most of us in a whirlwind of emotions. On today’s post I am reflecting, sharing my personal goals, latest fashion style & trends, and a brief blog note. For me, January was full of excitement, chill, with some sadness. However, I was able to celebrate my life. I turned 30 and brought in my birthday in Vegas with some of my closest friends. To add to the excitement I shared my 30 thoughts on turning 30. So many thoughts, to check it out click here.  I had a lot of fun and overcome with a lot of emotions. With our beloved, Kobe and daughter Gigi’s  death on our shoulder it certainly put us all in state of shock and disbelief. The tragic death of those in the helicopter brought me back to reality. Life is so fragile. Our life is so precious.  I learned that we need to value our time on this planet. We all have an expiration date, so we need …

I’m 30! 30 Thoughts On Turning 30

Today is the Big 3-0! Happy birthday to me! I am especially thankful to see another year. Today I celebrate my birthday, my life, and very big milestone. Just this time last year, I was writing that I was afraid to get older. Nothing like a young person telling you, 30 is old. Sheesh I would believe them. I was in this weird place about it because the world tells you by 30 you should have all together and figured out, or you hit expiration date on a personal level. What kinda of bs is that? Anyway, I told myself that I was going to embrace my new life, and not get caught up in premature thoughts on being a 30 year old. It is just another great day for me! 30s are definitely the new twenties. Life is going to get better at this point. On today’s post I am sharing 30 thoughts on being a 30 year old! I’m not getting older, I’m getting better! 30 Thoughts On Turning 30 1. Age is a state of mind. I am thirty but that does not make me old. If you believe and tell people you are old… inevitably you …

Why I Am Over Setting Resolutions in 2020

How has 2020 and the month of January treating you? I know for myself, so far I doing everything I supposed to do. I have been trying to get into a rhythm. I’m not going to lie it been hard. I set a resolution every year. My resolutions range from fitness, eating healthier, and self care. However, like most resolution I set, they become too hard to achieve. It maybe unrealistic or super vague. No action plan oh how I am going to tackle this kind of change. The next thing I know I become unmotivated within the 2 week or month mark and abandon them. I am over setting a resolutions for the new years.  You can say I am “anti- resolutions” this time around. Instead I am setting intentions. Setting an intention is different approach to goal setting. Goals represent a future plan. (Nothing wrong with goal setting). To amp up our goals, setting a intention everyday give purpose, I intend to …. To add, they work alongside our lifestyle. An unintentional life accepts everything and does nothing. An intentional life embraces only the things that will add to the mission of significance. -John Maxwell My Intentions I …
