Figures – By Jessie Reyez To preface this post, I recommend watching the video in the link above. This song, called Figures, really inspired me to think about past relationships and how powerless I used to feel in them. Lyrics: I gave you ride or die and you gave me games Love figures I know…… Continue reading Figures.
This weekend I celebrated a bride to be who I’ve known for the past 20 or so years. I’ve had 3 weddings in my family the past 3 years, and another 2 coming up next month alone.

Hi my loves, did you miss me?! I’ve taken a long break this summer to get my career situated (and started for that matter) and I have to say I have never felt more changed and evolved in my entire life. As a teacher, September is kind of like my “new year.” A time to…… Continue reading Salt.

A trend I’ve noticed within these…… Continue reading Does This Mug Make me Look single?
I have found the holy grail of self tanner. I have used many different products to make my skin glow and more often than not end up slightly orange and feeling worse about myself (sorry freshman year of college me).

I’ve recently taken the time to really think about how I’m keeping myself healthy. If you asked me a year ago I’d tell you I somehow maintain an “okay” physique with little to no effort besides the praising of God for my genetics. Looking at pictures of my past self I realize now that I…… Continue reading Easy Peasy Health Tips for Your Whole Self
I know this is a post you’ve seen before. If I’m being honest I either always scroll past them or read them thinking it will actually make me feel better and I end up a bit disappointed.
