I wrote a post a while ago about not blogging alone. What I didn’t know was where that would lead us! *Squeals*
Listen guys! It’s been so hard to keep this secret from you guys (and I still have one more secret ugh), but my good news has finally been announced!
This post is sponsored by smartwater.
Just as I was about to embark on my journey as a full-time blogger, I got this super dope opportunity with smartwater and WeWork.
But working for myself has put a big dent in my couch, literally. Even though I enjoy being able to get up at noon just to not get dressed and lounge on my couch every day, I was starting to forget how pretty I look when I take a bath and put some lipstick on. Suddenly, the idea of leaving my house to get some much-needed inspiration was giving me goosebumps. And in real life, I adore smartwater and I secretly believe it makes me smarter. #DontJudgeMe
My collaboration with smartwater allows me to visit the smartwater up up up lounge here in New York once a week for two months. Listen! The lounge is like something out of a My Little Pony episode. But in a really relaxing and grown-up way. The clouds are magically infused with hip music…and some rain and thunder for effects.
Tia Mowry says she is one of those celebrities who will always remember a face. But I was still surprised that she recognized me from our last interview (maybe it’s the grey).
The wildly gorgeous and humble actress is the star of The Cooking Channel series Tia Mowry at Home and Nickelodeon’s Instant Mom. She partnered with Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Lustre as a Brand Ambassador for the day to share her tips and recipes for planning a glamorous Mother’s Day experience.
I got a chance to chat with Tia and she dished her cooking tips for the busy mom, what secrets she’d tell her mother and how being a mom has changed her.
Being transparent is always a double-edged sword. Rarely are people (readers) comfortable with what needs to be shared. And one would think that those who offer help would be more comfortable with taboo topics like suicide being openly shared, but they’re not either. After learning that Karyn Washington, my friend and popular blogger, committed suicide I got this brilliant idea to open up to my readers, the random Internet perusers, and hell, the entire world. I confessed to battling depression after my mother died within a year of being diagnosed of stage 4 Lymphoma. Watching my mother die and then wanting her to die because of all the pain she was in, put me in a terrible head space.
