    Working from Home

    I was starting to feel the pressure my friend. I dont think any of us expected to still be in this space currently. Like many of you, I naturally assumed that things would get back to “normal” or at least something that resembled the “old” normal. I have a couple things coming up that was beginning to make me anxious. #DramaTeen is entering the 8th grade the same day that I begin Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. All while my hubs is working full-time remote. When the kids were released from school in March, we had a little routine down. But honestly once summer hit, we loosened up on the schedules.…

    A Few Changes

    And just like that here we are Welcoming August! I know I cant be the only one feeling like this year is just speeding right on by. Regardless if it seems like August came out of no where or whether you feel like this is the longest year ever, this is it, here we are. If you happen to be a new reader, in July I participated in a blogging consistency challenge where essentially I posted a new blog post every weekday M-F. We completed the challenge last week + I needed a few days to wrap my head around what I actually learned. Can we have a truth moment?…

    Taking the Leap: Betting on You

    Alright my friend, it has been a week of getting honest with ourselves + creating peace in our space at home. Now its time to get real with each other. If no one else will tell you I will. Its time to take that leap. Whatever idea, pitch or project that you have been putting on the back burner, it is time to release that baby into the world. You have sat on it long enough. You have done the research. You have stayed up late putting in the work. Dreaming, planning and imagining. You know exactly what needs to be done. Pushing Past It is time to push past…

    Creating a Space of Peace

    (This page contains Affiliate Link. For more information see my disclosures, here) Im all about vibes + energy. There is something to the notion that vibes/energy can be transferred from person to person. The same way people hold energy, so do spaces. Ive been in a super creative mindset lately wanting to add a little razzle dazzle to my home. Adding pieces here and there that bring me joy and removing the things that no longer “fit”. To me energy can bring on emotions + mindsets that are either positive or negative. If creating the energy in our homes or space is within our control, why wouldn’t we choose to…

    It’s Not Working: Tough Self Love

    Can you believe we are in the last week of my blogging challenge? I really cant believe we are starting week 4 today. Although challenging, so far I have learned a ton! I plan on posting a reflection post next week on all the things that I learned about myself during this time of flexing my blogger consistency muscle. This week, however I want to talk about my confessions. Yep, you read that right! Last week I had to have a hard conversation with myself and show tough self love. I had to be honest and admit what I already knew to be true. I dont know about you friend,…

    Mid Year Check-In: 4 Simple Steps

    I can not believe that we are already in the last weeks of July! It seems like 100 years have passed since NYE 2019 + in the same breathe it feels like there is no way that we only have 5 months left before we are ringing in another New Year. With less than half of the year left, you might be wondering where has all the time went? Dont worry I am wondering the same thing. Usually during this time of the year, end of summer/ start of fall, I take inventory of where I am mentally, physically + emotionally. Check-ins with yourself is vital to understanding what is…

    It’s Picnic Season Baby!

    (This page contains Affiliate Link. For more information see my disclosures, here) Depending on where you are located the amount of getting out in these streets now a days can really vary. One thing is for sure regardless of where you live, 2020 continues to prove that we as individuals have to rethink + restructure what we once knew. This means we have to get more creative in how we can enjoy the warmer, sunnier weather of summer.  Let me be the 1st to say WELCOME to Picnic Season, where my two favorite past times have a chance meeting.  Eating + being in nature! Picnics, as simple as they sound is…

    Nutrition Dense Smoothie

    Over the last few weeks we have talked meditation, getting movement in our body and even cleansing our spaces (externally + internally). As a person that wears many hats, mom, wife, business owner, I know all too well how easy nutrition can get lost in the mix of things especially as survival mode kicks in. At the start of the year I made a conscious decision that no matter what was going on that I would put my body first. Now did I think that I would need to keep that promise during Covid or Social Injustice, no not at all. However now more than ever I realize the importance of taking care…

    Plan a Virtual Happy Hour Today

    The weekend is upon us + I am in the mood to socialize! Dont worry, I am not out here in these streets, Covid cases are definately on the rise here in Charlotte + the state is still in Phase 2 for at least another 3 weeks. For the last few weeks my girl friends and I have been getting together for “check-in” Virtual Happy Hours and it has been a HUGE saving grace for me mentally.  Virtual Happy Hour? Yes Please!  It has been everything that I never knew I needed.  Now while I’m sure we all understand by the now the importance of social distancing to #flattenthecurve and…

    Hair Care Mistakes

    You Could Be Making I’ve always had a love hate relationship with my hair starting from a very young age.  From sitting in my momma’s kitchen while she hot combed my “kitchen”, to cutting it all off in college after several months of frying, dying and laying it to the side. Hair to me and to many people of the black community is a form of expression, individualism and a right of passage. So why did it take me until last year and 4 rounds of “going natural” to even know how to properly care for my hair? There is no secret that society has not always been very kind…
