SO! So let me catch you up on life (mine to be exact).

After 3 years of receiving an overwhelming number of emails from women who had also lost their mothers to cancer I decided to write a book about my experience with grief. Mainly because I was exhausting my sanity trying to answer all the questions I was getting. I figured if I wrote a memoir laced with tips that maybe, just maybe, I’d be more ready when I was approached about the subject.

I’ve wanted to be author since…forever. I can remember having book readings with my Barbie’s on our living room floor. And for the longest time, writing this book was just something I had told my good girlfriends I was “GOING TO DO”. You know, I’m going to travel more, I’m going to lose these 40 pounds magically…the usual “yea ok, sure” thoughts of our lives. God had a bigger plan for me and at the end of 2015 a publishing company reached out to me. Because God knew I was not going to get this done any other way.

What you don’t know is that… View Full Post

2._Instagram_Stories_-_Watching.0

Today, just five years after the launch of Snapchat we get reintroduced to the popular app that was once only known for dick pics and private pre-teen conversations. Except this intro came via Instagram. Let me tell you, Instagram kinda bodies Snapchat. And I spent most of my day reading and watching ridiculously funny stories about Instagram’s new update, affectionately titled Instagram Stories: which is merely an imitation of Snapchat.

In case you missed it this morning and have yet to receive the update and explore, here’s a peak at all the digital fuss: View Full Post

Unless you’re new to my blog (welcome, welcome!) or you’ve been living under some gross rock trying to hide from all the Internet greatness that exists (totally judging you) then you should already know by now that I just wrote a book (insert the deepest longest sigh of life!). Becoming an author has been on my mega life goal list since I was 11. I use to set up shop in my bedroom with my Barbies and Kid Sister and we’d have book readings and signings. I know, I was so extra as a kid.

Because writing a book is literally the hardest thing you will ever do, I had to focus. And the amount of focus that’s needed to write a book, girl! A fellow author of mine suggested detoxing to get my mind clear. So no fried foods, no sweets and an abundance of water! It actually worked and I was able to bang this book out in no time. But now that I am finally finished my book I’m looking to make this summer the best summer ever. For me, that means I want need to indulge in everything. Over eating, over spending, OVER OVER OVER!    View Full Post

Celebrity Cruises Summit 18

Hello lovahs! If you’ve been following my journey on social media then you know that I wrote a book (*screams* more on that later) and I’ve been doing a lot of traveling.

For the record, cruises are my new thing. They really provide an easy way to travel and pack in lots of memories on a relatively moderate budget. Cruises are especially great for people who are just starting to curate their travel journey.  View Full Post
