woman whispering to another woman

Being tactful or being more discreet is just that—having the ability to clearly communication your point all while being sensitive to those around you. Eek. My real friends know that I often times fail at this. There’s a really thin line between hiding what you really feel and presenting your ideas, opinions and thoughts in a way that makes them inoffensive.

This post is really a reminder for me, but I figured it might help one of you beauties too. Here’s 5 ways you can be more discreet in sharing your feelings. View Full Post


Erykah Badu kicked the Neo-Soul music doors wide open snatching the hinges off in 1996 and got things popping like fish grease. Since that time her voice as an artist has grown along with the respect she’s gained as a woman. Erykah gave birth to a sound that is so unique to her, yet so conscious and so relevant. She’s a woman who is not ashamed of her truth, nor is she afraid to share it.

Aside from the fact that Erykah Badu has a thing for musicians and they clearly have a thing for her, we’ve had the pleasure of learning many things about the Queen of Neo-Soul. Her willingness to share her truth in a raw and uncut fashion is yet another reason why we can’t get enough of Erykah Badu, a.k.a Fat Belly Bella, a.ka. DJ Low-Down Loretta Brown…we could keep going!  View Full Post

Runyon Canyon Gorgeous In Grey IMG_8099

LISTEN! So I had this bright idea to hike up the Runyon Canyon. It’s been on my bucket list for years and since I was in LA for my last trip with Buick (read about my year-long adventures here) I convinced my boyfriend, my fellow blogger from the Buick crew and his daughter to hike up the mountain on our free day.

It’s week one of 2016 and everyone has many irons in the fire. For many people, they’ve been planning and setting goals for the New Year since the Summer or early Fall. Now, things are in full swing; new ideas, new goals and creative juices are at a high, the question is, how long will it last? View Full Post

2016 reader survey

I’ve been blogging for almost six years and I just realized that I’ve never asked who you were. Like, I don’t know where you’re from, if you went to a HBCU, or if you love fruit snacks like me (I promise you those are just jokes I don’t really want to know all of that).

Either way, your opinion and feedback means the world to me and although we chat via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat I want to know what you WANT and NEED. SO I need to hear from you!

I’d love you even more if you could take a few minutes to fill out the survey. By doing so, you will ultimately be making your life easier. Why? Because you will be helping me create content even more interesting and relevant to you! BET?

The survey is easy to fill out, and the results are completely anonymous. I won’t see who said what and I definitely won’t know if you went to a HBCU either (but you can tell me if you like, I went to Hillman College!). The best part is that you will finish in less than five minutes (unless you type mad slow and then you have bigger adult issues than I can fix). Also to sweeten the pot, I will have a few prizes for a few random participants who have completed the survey!

Once completed, the results will be posted here on le blog for all to see.
