Birthday Scaries

About a week ago I celebrated a birthday, June 17th to be exact. From June 1st until late June 15th, I was freaking out. It was something I am going to call, Birthday Scaries. You know Sunday Scaries? Sunday night you are thinking about all the things you should have done over the weekend and…

That New Job Glow

If you follow me on Instagram (and I hope you do), then you noticed that I got a new job! Starting something new can be pretty scary, especially if you’re someone like me who doesn’t like change. However, it is a beautiful opportunity to grow. I’m a big believer that every day is your chance…

Life Lessons from SXSW

If you are looking for a recap of all the latest technology, cool activations, or social media tricks I suggest you go to Adweek or Mashable. Did I learn a lot about those things?

WTF Happened?: An Honest Discussion About Burnout & Self-Care

Not sure if you noticed, but I haven’t posted a single blog post since September. Next, I stopped doing my cute (well I thought they were cute) IG stories explaining my outfits.

Summer is officially over, but there is still a lot of fun to be had, especially with these unpredictable temperatures. I recently attended a liquor infused festival, Hennypalooza and it was just as fun as it sounds. To ensure I had fun I made sure not only was I cute, but I was also comfortable…

Let’s Get Nude

About two months among a friend of mine text me, asking if I was comfortable going nude. I didn’t second guess it, because this friend of mine is Jackie Moran, an amazing Creative Director and it would be for a good cause, inclusivity. Nude Against Nude is a creative project that confronts brands who treat…

My Obsession With Leotards

It’s impossible to walk through a Forever21, scroll through MissGuided or ASOS without passing a leotard or body suit. Every girl has at least one in her wardrobe. That’s fine, but I’m here to tell you I did it first and it all started with Capezio. Okay, I wasn’t like the first, first. Being the…

The Weekly Rundown

Giving you a rundown on the past week and it’s a busy one. As a matter of fact, someone pass me my covfefe! First, out prayers go out to London as they experienced another attack on the London Bridge. Van drove into several pedestrians on the bridge and then moved on to a local market…

Bloggers Take Note From Shea Moisture: Insights Matter

A few weeks ago Shea Moisture released a new commercial and Twitter exploded. Something was missing…their main customer! Shea Moisture isolated their biggest consumer, women of color. When I watched the commercial, I had a few questions. Did anyone check the analytics of their social pages? Did anyone check their demographics? What was the insight?…
