It’s my favorite time of the year and even at 30-something I still get excited about Christmas. From festive decor to holiday shindigs and spending time with family, I love the spirit of the holiday.
What about you? Do you love this time of year? OR , are you over it already?
I really want a camera!😫 Meanwhile... amazed that we can get this much detail from an iPhone? Sans editing? I mean not bad for a couple shots on my lunch break, nawmean...🤓 I’m trying so hard to keep a rosy color scheme going on my channel, but I may have to ditch that idea... I don’t like losing the crispness and integrity of everything to filters all the time😒 #4k
Be a bad@$$.
“And she flourished, not because she was any better, but simply because she was crazy enough to believe without a doubt that she could accomplish anything she put her mind to.” 💫
Gotta stare at obstacles like this so they know you're going to win regardless.
My skin is infused with rich melanin
Shining, glistening in the light
My lips are plump echoeing the song
Beautiful a capella, melody strong
The sweet honey stare of my eyes
Looking up at the heavens into the skies
My natural hair it never flows
A blooming flower it still grows
The span of my hips so wide
Up and down in confidence I stride
Because I am black.
I am beautiful.

Yesterday marked 3 years of living in New York. Looking back and reflecting on all the ups and downs I wouldn’t change it for the world. I think moving to New York has been one of the easiest and hardest decisions of my life. It’s been a journey and I know bigger and better things are on the horizon. Each year keeps getting better and I know year 3 has amazing things on the horizon.
The woman who does not require validation from anyone is the most feared individual on the planet ... I know who I am
Here’s my first dose of holiday style inspiration this year and this one is festive, but not in an "all up in your face" kind of way. I’m the captain of team doing the most, team extra, and team where does she thinks she’s going, BUT sometimes keeping it simple is all you need.

Baby, let me tell you:
Everyone is NOT meant to ride on your elevator as you continue to climb to the top.
I’ve lost “friends, acquaintances and significant others” throughout this journey and I never questioned our falling out. I just let them go.
I am FAR from perfect and I have my ways, but God places people in your life for a reason and/or season.
Don’t let fallouts stop you, let them go and keep moving. Even if they blocked or unfollowed you, trust me, they are still watching from afar. 💁🏾♀️ keep on shining!

You can’t heal what you refuse to reveal.
We have a habit of keeping our hurt a secret as if it’s abnormal to feel pain and disappointment.
As a result, we end up bottling it all up and hoping that it will eventually go away. I know we say that time heals all, but time alone is not enough.
Journal, chat with friends, or start a blog — anything to get it out of you. All wounds need air to heal, so stop expecting a bandaid to be a permanent solution.
👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 I don’t care how long it’s been on your mind, don’t let it stay any longer. Take 5 minutes right now to write down everything stressing you. Take a deep inhale while balling up the paper or ripping it up. Take a deep exhale and throw it away. Happy healing 💓

Still I Rise by Maya Angelou
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
Do you know the artist in the picture?
