Turning 29: Lessons I Learned in My Twenties

So today is my 29th birthday… I am so thankful to see another birthday.  I have one more year to the BIG 3-0. To be really honest, I am kinda scared of getting older.  Simply I am afraid of the unknown and becoming irrelevant.  I recently was saying this in a previous post, simply discussing my plans as a 29 years old and so forth. To change my thoughts on the fear, I decided it would be best to focus and admire my growth. Growth in life is key. I am not the same girl I use to be, and I am so thankful. Instead of getting hyped up for about premature thoughts on getting older…. I am going to embrace my life, my age, and admire my growth! To admire my growth here are 29 things I have learned in my 20s. You can’t pour from an empty glass: I learned in order to be my best self, I have to make sure I take time to take care of myself. While working and blogging I learn that I had to invest more time for self and mental care. So every day now I take 10 minutes or more …

Bye Bye 2018: My Small Reflection

We are right on the cusp of 2018.  I felt compel to write a brief reflection today. I have to be all the way 100, I am so thankful that 2018 is near the end. For me it has been up and down roller coaster. Maybe even a love/hate relationship. I think that sounds better. HAHA. 2018 I had so many highlights. I can really say it was the year of doors being open for me. I was given the opportunity to collaborate with some many brands. Collaborating with Forever 21 was one of the greatest accomplishment that I faced as bloggers.  I still get chills when I think about. Also, collaborating with TomboyX help me feel more confident to bare it all with their super comfortable underwear. 2018 also allow me to network and meet so many wonderful folks.  Going to all the Femology Detroit events really reassure my confidences.  Lastly, I was given the opportunity to collaborate with amazing photographers in city. I am so thankful for them all because they make the quality on my blog that much better. On another note, 2018 would not be complete if I did not learn a few lesson. Accountability, self …

Side Effects of Being Loner

Let me tell y’all something. I have always been by myself. I am the only child… no siblings. Never had that many friends and the boyfriend department, don’t even ask- he just don’t exist on the this planet.  I can say that I switch back and forth from being introvert and extrovert.  I had to take a step back from the fashion and address some things that have been heavy on my heart. I know I am not alone in this category. I am super lonely and I am trying to figure out how I can get myself out of this hole I made for myself. A loner is person that chose not to interact with people.  Let me add my spin to it…. I do classify myself as loner however I pick and choose when I want to interact with people.  Some days I do and some days I want to spend time with myself. I come from a long line of people that are loners in my family. My daddy, grandpa, and whole host of uncles that like to be by themselves. I got it honest  However, being a loner has been super heavy on me lately.  I …

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 …
