Falling in the Fall 🍂

Fall is my favorite time of year. I have a birthday in the fall, the weather changes, the holidays come around, the leaves turn beautiful browns and orange colors. Hot chocolate and fuzzy soft pajamas come out. The air is just different. In that same breath, this season is also one of the hardest ofContinue reading “Falling in the Fall 🍂”

Puzzle Therapy for the Anxious

When I feel overwhelmed I tend to drop everything. Calls and texts go unanswered, messages get missed, social media gets parked and I go silent. I do that in an attempt to regain structure and grab ahold of life and as a result, I “fall behind.” This past weekend I was sitting on the couchContinue reading “Puzzle Therapy for the Anxious”

CARCHELLA

DJ Envy’s, Carchella was a GREAT TIME! 10/10 I highly recommend. Now, I know what you’re thinking, you’re not even into cars, and you know what.. you’re absolutely right.

Stop! Natural Hair Is Not Unprofessional

It upsets me that people don’t understand how much hair is a part of our identity. Growing up I knew that we had to get our hair permed or hot combed to get it as straight as possible to match the beauty standard. Apparently, with our hair straightened it was manageable and neat. Over timeContinue reading “Stop! Natural Hair Is Not Unprofessional”

Reassurance for the High-Achiever

This is for the high-achiever who feels like time has run out. The one who can receive so many stares and yet still feel unseen. The one who has their accomplishments displayed throughout their home and pass them by daily without recognition. It’s the time of year when high- achievers suffer the most. Failing toContinue reading “Reassurance for the High-Achiever”
