The goal with my #WCW series is to provide inspiration. I know we all have dreams and most of us don’t go for it - for whatever reason you tell yourself. That reason tho, frankly boils down to fear. In all of my interviews so far and even books that I’ve read from extremely successful people - they all say JUST START - you will learn in the doing!

2 min book report - subtle art

I keep getting asked “what books are you readin” + “how do I get to know me” which I LOVE!! I’m here to be like your big sis, your home girl in your head, that logical angel on your shoulder. The 'Subtle art of not giving a f*ck' is in my top 3 of books I suggest when I get those above question. Enjoy!

My accidental home remodel

Now, this is the story all about how my 1950s home got turned upside down... is that on beat? HA! 


Back in October of 2018 - I had to have my house restored (remodeled) due to a water heater leak! In the midst of it all, it was a headache but in the end the look/upgrade was worth it. Full story, on why it was a headache and things I learned on my blog here (click)

bangs part 2 + rounding cut

I love my curls and I'm 1.5 years in - going 'natural' + over 8 years of no relaxer. I'm sooooo proud of myself. Now that my hair is curly, I'm looking for a shape that I like. Before bangs and when my hair was 'as is' - it was very weighed down. I had random long (curly) strands and although I love my curls - I didn't like the shape.   


So, Des and I are playing around with what will work for me!

THE #WCW SERIES PART 2

Here is another #WCW episode! This time with Faith Hovde of 'Emerald Studios' and 'Philocaly Lingerie' Boutique The goal with my #WCW series is to provide inspiration. I know we all have dreams and most of us don’t go for it - for whatever reason you tell yourself. That reason tho, frankly boils down to fear. In all of my interviews so far and even books that I’ve read from extremely successful people - they all say JUST START! 


So, how did Faith get started ie. JUST START?

2min book report - Born A Crime

GIRL -- press play -- I may have given YOU a shout out in this video... Have you read this book?  Are you a reader?  What are you currently reading?  Being a reader was one of my new year resolutions of 2018 and I'm happy to say that I am now a reader and it has changed my life!! Currently reading 'Becoming' - Michelle Obama and 'Crush it' - Gary V was the first book I finished in 2019.  Reading has really helped in my self awareness!

The #WCW Series - Ep 1

GIRL - I wanted to give YOU some inspiration through women that I admire. Following dreams is really about connecting the dots. The more information (and inspiration) you can consume the more likely YOU will connect those dots and go out and follow YOUR dreams.  


I hope YOU are inspired by TODAY's #WCW - 23 year old hair and makeup stylist Evelyn!


The #WCW series is every other Wednesday at 7:30p via my facebook (click) page! xo

Why can't I have a man without kids?

GIRL - let's talk ~ EXCERPT from my BLOG: ✏️ Titled: Why can't I have a man without Kids? Read the full blog -here-


Simple answer: because you continue to choose to settle. Because you settle for the men with kids... It's not because only men with kids are walking around. It may seem that way because of what you see, but what you see is not everything and it's not the truth.

How to dodge the F*ck boys!

Today's message comes from my blog - titled; Dear 18 year old. Which stems from a DM I got from an 18 year old girl who was asking about her boyfriend. To read the FULL blog please visit my blog - here-  


Girl, let's get out of the business of fixing men

They (men) need to learn how to come to the table emotionally whole. Not perfect but the striving for better is sexy!  - If YOU raise the bar, there is a man for you that will reach it.  - Singleness is not a punishment.

My Journey to 40

My goal? I want girls to dream different. Barbie doesn't always have to marry Ken! 


How did I get here? 34, no kids, no husband. I wonder what happens to a woman if she makes it to 40 with no kids and/or no husband? Does she die.... society seems to think so... GIRL how many times have you been pressured to have a kid because 'you're clock is ticking momma'... better hurry up! Let's talk.
