Event Recap: Femology Detroit Blogger Bash at Grand Circus!

Last Sunday I went to event called “Blogger Bash” it was the first of it kind by Femology Detroit .  I heard all about this event through the last event I went to … remember the yoga event. This was the networking event for the season I had to be there.   I have to be honest tho I was super nervous about going to this event because I am socially awkward. I felt like a little girl again going to new school.  Scared to put myself out there however The next thing I know I was talking and introducing myself to everyone. Femology Detroit is a modern business workspace created for women to interact, work, and thrive! founded by Meagan Ward.. shout out to you sis !  This event took place at the Grand Circus. Soon as I walked on the floor I was in heaven.  Balloons, cotton candy, and vendors were everywhere. It was so LIT !  When first walked in I made my attention at the table filled with fruits, cupcakes, and cakes and so many other decadent treats to eat. Then there were cotton candy and yummy drinks.  Special Shout to Balloon Haus that had a beautiful …

Black women celebrating ways they found happiness and joy in there life and I think I need to focus my concentration. I need more joy, peace, and smiles. When I think of the month of July, I see celebration and happiness. Fashion Note This month I want to still focus on bring lots and lots of color.

Its May !

Yes its May the month I been dreading about since April. I schedule my wisdom teeth extraction for May 1st. Thus why this post is going up so late. According to the hat in the picture, I have been off duty ! I had plans to complete the day before my extraction however I was so terrified that I could not wrap my head around typing up a blog post.  With all that being said I faced my fear head on, tooth by tooth! Literally !So yes I have 4 teeth missing and I am in lot of pain. Thank God for Motrins lol.  Since getting my teeth pulled I been a little sad. I think my face looks different… well duh my cheeks are swollen! But I still feel like I don’t look the same.  I miss eating normal whole foods, and chewing lol. Nothing like a wisdom teeth extraction that make you appreciate small things like being able to eat. So to get out my mine off the negative let start brainstorming for the blog. No pain or discomfort last forever ! Fashion Note On the fashion note this month we are going to keep it simple.  I …

Check Please ! How I style my Gingham Pants ?

Yes, the spring time is among us and I here for the warm up ! So yes let start off with some prints and bold colors. My first pair of gingham pants and I love them.  Gingham pants give off  kinda a preppy look ! In the magazine the prep look is really in style for the spring ! It can be dressed up or down and  definitely consider a classic look. You can pair it with a graphic tee, pop of color, bright sweater, another print! I decided to pair my gingham pants with a bold color! I get a lot of love when it comes to mustard yellow ! So yellow it is ! As soon as I saw these pants at Forever 21 I knew I had to have them. Its something different, and outside of my comfort zone. So sis go out and get you some gingham pants and style them up ! Why yellow is apart of my daily wardrobe? So I was looking through all my Instagram pictures and notice I have a real life relationship with yellow. I find some way to incorporate yellow in my daily fits ! I enjoy yellow because …

I stay in the Friend Zone… Living Single in 2018s kinda of world I’m glad I got my girls !!! LOL . Listen to me …I have been curved, I have been friend zoned. I have been confused. I have been without a label. Simply I have no idea where my love life is gonna go. SO I am Living Single 🙂  BARE WITH ME… THIS IS ONE MY POST THAT IS OFF TOPIC BUT I FEEL LIKE MY LADIES THAT HAVE A HARD TIME DATING NEED TO KNOW THIS.. SPECIAL SHARE I am so over trying to date in this day in age. It so hard ! But I am not gonna give up. I have always been the girl who tried to be down with the guys. I am also super shy.  I would watch sports, play video games all those things to impress the guys.  Dating is a nervous thing for me so I have a tendency of hiding my true feelings,  and my excitement.  I want to show I am really chill. Also I always wait for the guys to take lead. So with all that being said I had to start looking back at myself and see …

Struggling Blogger Chronicles #2

Baby Steps Are Good Steps Baby Steps: Small/ realistic/ attainable goal Yes I am back with another struggle blogger chronicle. This something that I really struggle with . Today I am taking about baby steps. No not the steps that your baby took. I am talking about the the small goals. The goals that are easy to meet.  Life really can have you in a rat race all the time. You feel you always have to be moving fast, or reach for big goal. Have you ever thought to yourself that a goal can’t be met because you haven’t taken the necessary baby steps to make it to the big goal. What I am saying you can not go from 0 to 1000 in one day.
