When Opportunity Knocks…

October 5, 2017

“If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.”  – Tom Peters A few weeks ago, the company I was with dissolved and I was laid off for the first time ever in my career.  While devastating & stress-inducing for most I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to achieve my next goal. I know you’re probably sitting here like what do you mean?  You’ve literally lost your major source of income and possibly a part of your mind!…

Lambo Carrier saves the day!

September 19, 2017

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Pet Magasin but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Ever since Mobil was a kitten, I’ve always been an advocate of breaking down cat stereotypes.  Two of those being “you can’t walk or travel with a cat” so naturally when heading to the pet store or enjoying some outside time Mobil was always harnessed up and ready to go.

To avoid drink monotony I’ve partnered with Perrier to try their flavored line which includes Lime, Pink Grapefruit, Green Apple, Lemon, L’Orange, and new this summer Strawberry & Watermelon.  I was definitely excited about the latest…

“You will always grow through, what you go through.” – Tyrese Gibson  As humans, we only tend to share what’s good in our lives but become radio silent otherwise.  We sweep all the bad phases, relationships, friendships, and losses under a rug as if nothing happened. Even though these very people/situations we attempt to sweep away actually make an impact (good or bad) in our present day life. Losing people whom you loved can either carry/release a lot of weight…

May 13, 2017
Hask Coconut Milk & Organic Honey

 It’s almost been a year since I decided to cut off all my hair for the 2nd time.  After mistakenly going back to relaxers my hair became so weak.  It started falling out from chemical & heat damage and it was time to get back to my curly roots. My hair has made some great progress, however, I struggle with moisture and caring for it in its natural state. Even though there are tons of natural bloggers, websites, and YouTube channels…
