Lately, I haven’t had the strength to write. It’s actually taking me forever to write this post and it’s so unfamiliar since I typically zone in and can write anything.
I’ve been doing a lot…like, running around preparing my baby sister for prom (which she absolutely slayed). I’ve been doing my church duties, friend duties, daughter duties and all the while trying to juggle my retail job, remote job, website and relentless emotional and spiritual tests. Thankfully, my list includes fun stuff, such as driving up to Canada last week for a family wedding and flying down to Georgia for another the month before. Those getaways have been so needed because I’m obsessed with my family and it brings me joy to be around them.
However, I am still.going.through.
Have you been seeing your favorite natural hair influencers sporting something that looks like a beanie but then again can be worn as a bonnet? I have! Up and down my feed, continuously. After seeing so many ads, I wanted to give it a try. Outside of my precious bundles, I am #teamnatural and I’m always looking to try out anything that will protect my curls!
During my NYC Blogger Weekend, I had the opportunity to book a complimentary appointment at Dreamdry! I arrived with the other bloggers to the chic and luxurious hair salon and was blown away by their service and omg, the decor! Sleek and modern. It was awesome having the place to ourselves!
Hey Adorners, Medge here! I am excited to announce that I am finally free of the shackles of school…at least until next semester. Anyway, I am about to be a senior in college (inserts Rachel Dolezal pack of gray hair)! Inwardly, I’m freaking out but this too shall pass, right? Hehehe.
Want to know the best lipstick for your skin tone? Any and every shade. Don’t ever feel as if you can’t wear what lighter tones can just because you have a deeper pigment. All you need is confidence and some good old lip liner. They solve all things!
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.
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?
There are days when you jump out out the beeeeeed, turn your swag on, take a look in the mirror and say “what’s up!” And some other days, you’ll just want to roll over.
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.
