Bloggers in New York City

Remember a couple of weeks back when I was flooding Snapchat and Instastories with my adventures in NYC? I teamed up with my Style Collective Sisters for a “Bloggers in New York City Takeover” Weekend. I’m talking blow outs, kickboxing, brunch on brunch on brunch and more! Everything, and when I say, everything was complimentary!

Here’s how it all went down.

The Best Face Oils for Your Skin

We’ve all been told at some point in our lives that we should keep oil far away from our skin–whether it had been a beauty counter rep telling you, your doctor or your mama! It didn’t matter if it was oil splattering up from fried chicken pan, the natural oils we find in our skin, or organic oils. To us women, all kinds were synonymous with “no bueno.” Because oil = breakouts, right?

 

Not necessarily.

How Trying to Be “Perfect” Stunts Your Growth

Hey Adorners, Happy Spring! I pray that this is a season of growth for you all. It has already begun to be a trying time for me.

 

In the past couple of months, my life was going pretty well. Too well. This is entirely a foreign concept to accept, as something always goes wrong for me! Ask my friends. I always have little, random moments where I shrug and have to laugh and say, "it's just the way my life is set up."

 

So to go along life without any mishaps was too fishy for me. But finally, the challenges came.

Embrace Your Bold | Sponsored by Banana Republic

My mom always tells me how shocked she is at who I am today and I always laugh.  Ya see, I used to be extremely quiet…so much so, that corny grownups would say “cat got your tongue?” almost everyday of my kid life. I also didn’t like people much…I preferred my mom and the rest of my family lol.

3 Steps to Take Charge of Your Life

I’m not a follower. I’m not easily swayed. I like being my own boss. I know what I want, how I want it…and yeah. I’m sure of myself…in a good, black girl magic kind of way. This past year, though?! I’ve been wrecked. Like literally, I’ve been facing situations that have rocked my world back to back. God has shown me time and time again there are simply things that I cannot control.

 

I can, however, take charge of how I respond to the situations I face in life and honeyyy, so can you. It’s time we redefine taking charge of our lives. Let’s make this quick and easy, shall we?

Hey beauties,

 

Can you believe it’s March already? In-sane. The weather has already begun behaving like spring but I can’t wait for the season to especially come. I’m preparing myself by switching out my bulky winter wardrobe for my spring wardrobe, cleaning every inch of my house and tending to every inch of my skin. Yes, I said skin. Spring cleaning should apply to our skin, too!
