The Art of Staying in Your Lane…

Hello 2018! I hope you all had a FABULOUS holiday and that you all are ready to kick this year in the butt! Being that most of us start the new year with new aspirations and goals in mind, I thought it was a good idea to revisit an old post of mine. (Originally posted at my sister site – Spot 86). I want to start by telling you guys that I am in no way, shape, or form perfect. There are days that I wake up stressed, discouraged, or anxious. I have a tendency to put huge amounts of pressure on myself. As I approached this new year, I couldn’t shake that feeling. Like what I was doing, or my goals weren’t good enough. Continue Reading

Take a Chill Pill…

Am I the only person that catches themselves rolling their eyes when they see others bragging about working while we’ve all been asleep? I don’t know about you, but I need my eight hours each night. And I don’t think I should be made to feel bad for doing so. Between working a full-time job, managing my blog, and being an author – a good night’s sleep keeps me sane! I work better and am much more productive when I feel well rested and have a clear head. I don’t get it, it’s like people get the side eye when they opt to relax and take a break to recharge their batteries or enjoy some leisure time. Whether it’s by taking a well-deserved vacation, or sleeping in for the day. What’s not to love about being able to kick back and chill every once in a while?

The Girlfriend Code…

A few weeks ago, I posed a question on my Facebook about women that say they don’t get along with other women. Then like fate, my sister from another mister (in my mind at least) Issa Rae tweeted something along the lines of – “I feel sorry or women who don’t have female friends.” Quite honestly, I couldn’t agree more. There’s something about having a connection with other women that can’t be replaced by relationships with men. And if you ask me – in this cold ass world, a woman needs her girlfriend(s)!

A Toast to 30…

Hey guys! I hope you’re having a great week! This month has been amazing so far. I’ve sold plenty of books, continued to make some great connections, and just celebrated my 30th birthday (October 18th). As some of you may know, the thought of turning thirty was something I’ve dreaded for a long time. It wasn’t until recently that I finally embraced the idea of entering a new decade in my life. (Read “Hello 30“). Well now that I’m thirty I have some goals I’d love to achieve. Y’all know I love my lists! So let’s get right into it…

Fall Feels…

Hey guys! First – let me start by apologizing for being MIA the last couple of weeks! After my book launch party my body simply gave out and I spent some time battling pink eye and a fever. But I promise my time spent recovering wasn’t wasted! My slight hiatus gave me time to reflect on my work and where I see my blog and brand going. Now that I’m back, I’m eager as ever to kill it! And with fall officially upon us, I couldn’t be more excited. I often find with a transition into a new season, I get a resurgence of energy and motivation. I’m eager to tackle my goals, take on new challenges and embrace new opportunities. I have some major plans ahead and I hope that you guys are just as excited as I am!
