For so long I lived paycheck to paycheck. My parents taught me about a lot of things but financial literacy wasn’t one of them. It’s a conversation Black people just don’t have in their homes. So we carry on a life of poverty and irresponsible spending habits. That’s why it’s important that we all know about the Money Matters Financial Literacy Program. View Full Post
People ask me all the time. How do you wear sneakers with your fancy dresses? Hmmm. Not to be all simplistic and corny BUT just do it! In my twenties I rocked the highest heels possible. I use to model and walking everyday in heels was my practice. Now, I got corns. I swear life would be better without my pinky toe. Let doctors tell it you need it to stand up straight and not fall over. Meh! My left big toe makes this ungodly noise each time I move it (it’s doesn’t hurt, she’s just old) and cankles have now magically appeared at the bottom of my legs. Meh!
So I wear sneakers. Often. View Full Post
It’s hard to think that just four years ago this month I packed two suitcases and moved from Baltimore to New York to sleep on a friend’s couch. My only goal was to figure out how to make it as a style and beauty editor. Fast forward to 2016, and I am now a published author, look at God. WOW! Talk about life reimagined. So when I was asked to try out the Life Reimagined program and blog about it, I immediately said yes. I wanted to see how much further I could take my new goals, the new me!

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 [my] grief. Mainly because I was exhausting my sanity trying to answer all the questions I was getting from you guys. I figured if I wrote a memoir laced with tips on grieving that maybe, just maybe, I’d be kinda ready when I was approached about the subject.
I’ve wanted to be author since…forever. I can remember having fake book readings with my Barbie’s on my bedroom 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
I’m currently on a “financial diet” because I sorta kinda went overboard a few months back. I kept loading up my online carts (plural because I keep my carts filled up while I wait for the sales) with trendy goodies and when I went to check out, sheesh! My wallet might have silently screamed. A few of the items I caught on sale but most were what I consider to be must-haves…like this Boohoo Plus Embroidered Hem Mesh Maxi Dress! View Full Post
Imagine if you and your besties could travel for practically free, together…at least once! That’s basically the idea behind IHG’s new promotion in partnership with COKE called “Share Forever” and it’s valid for stays now through September 5, 2016, and registration is now open.
Normally I hate sharing anything. I’ve always believe that the last “whatever“ is always best when only you have it. Don’t you agree? But not this time! In addition to earning points that you can use yourself, you also earn additional points (or nights) that you can share. You can earn a minimum of 65,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points and a free night awards to share. And there’s tons of IHG properties to pick from, so there’s no excuse. Say word?! I am looking at all your beauties who travel for work. Cash those points in! View Full Post
