So, for Black History Month, Young bosShe asked me to discuss race relations in the workplace. … Continue reading MY LIFE: Handling Race at Work

Shout out to the team at Jessica London for sponsoring my ‘back to work’ look! My previous job was in the non-profit world – very laid back and very casual. Seriously, if I wore heels to work, it was a big deal. Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE some casual looks. But I love being able to add a bit of flare too. Now, working at college, I feel the need to step up my game. Students come to me for guidance and I hope I can stylishly lead them.
After attending the recent event, ‘Single in the Ville’, sponsored by Nashville’s newest publication, Nashville Voice I was almost convinced that dating in Nashville was a lost cause.
The Nashville Voice is the city’s newest African-American news publication. The online news source discusses Nashville news from an black perspective. On Tuesday, at The Lab Nashville, the publication hosted a women-only event aimed at breaking the code of dating in the city. Moderated by Markeith Braden (entrepreneur + success coach), the event asked attendees open-ended questions about their dating experiences in Nashville.

Last week, I felt the sting of FAILURE. I wrote about it on Instagram. This week I sing the song of FAITH!

Life is hard right now. Actually my life has been fairly difficult for the last four years. I hint at my struggles here & there. But, knowing the internet is an open forum for petty parades, I keep my business close to me. However, therapy saved me from death and I thought I’d share my journey. Therapy helped me realize that you should always plant seeds of courage, confidence, and motivation so they can bloom during your darkest days. It’s why I stay positive, it’s why I blog.
Last year I went to therapy because I was having intense suicidal thoughts. Life had really gotten the best of me. In the past four years I was hit with a wave of horrible; some of it my fault, some just coincidence, all of it bad. I’m a Christian, and even the Bible advises us to SEEK GOOD COUNSEL And that’s what I did.
Halloween always sneaks up on me! Always! Probably because I didn’t grow up celebrating a traditional Halloween in my religious house. We went to church nights, dressed up as ‘safe’ characters, and enjoyed autumn themed games. No shade, I still had fun (and got candy). Now days, the CREATIVITY that goes into costumes blows me away. From celebs to friends going on bar crawls, the … Continue reading A super quick Halloween look!
