I’m excited to share this very special playlist with you! The Jack and Ahlia Playlist is the music I listened to which inspired each of the four main characters: Jack, Ahlia, Corey, and Jordan. You can listen to this playlist on Spotify and Tidal. It features amazing tracks from some of my favorite popular and indie artists including: SZA, Al Green, Method Man, Carl Thomas, Jeezy, Romen, and Daniel Ceasar.
When I quit my job, in the spring, I had a lot more time to be creative. So, I was cruising the online streets, I came across a writing challenge, #XD30 created by Blogger and Online Influence, Xavier D’Leau. XD hosts a writing challenge that’s as simple as it is difficult. Basically, you write everyday for 30 days. The simple part was to write WHATEVER … Continue reading MY LIFE: Read my book, ‘Jack & Ahlia’
This motivation post should have went out on Monday, but it’s Tuesday and y’all will deal. Plus, y’all love me right? Right! I just wanted to tell you, “Thank You”, for being patient with me while I took a blogging break. Now on to today’s MOTIVATION.
Y’all, I took a break because my life totally changed in less than 48hrs! My new normal is waking up at 4:45am every weekday, turning in reports without error, and being a shining example of adulthood to a teenager. For an ultra chill person like myself, I don’t do well with rigidity. Let me tell you how I’ve spent so many years praying for God to magically fix the weak parts of my life, not knowing THIS situation is what he’d use to do it. Don’t ask for what you aren’t willing to work for. This is what I’m learning.
I won’t be before you long. There’s ALOT going on in my world right now! A lot. And truthfully, most of it isn’t good. I like to keep it real with you guys because y’all are like my extended family – I need a break from posting. I can’t keep posting cute pics when my world feels like it’s crumbling. So, I’m giving myself two … Continue reading MY LIFE: I gotta take a break
If you haven’t guessed by my lack of social media presence, return to regular posting schedule (Mon, Wed, Fri, & sometimes the weekend), and nonexistent Youtube updates, I’ve returned to the corporate world. Yes, girl! I took a new job in October (more on that next week). However, back in March, I quit my ‘good government’ job after 10 years. I then took the summer off to create, explore, and build the world of FabGlance. It was mostly fun to be a professional blogger. I kept up the facade that things were POPPIN’ over here. But, I quickly, realized, “Whoa, this is harder than I thought.” and I had to go back to work.
I went back to the 9-to-5 grind, realizing that I had FAILED at quitting. Basically, I was the goal that others strive for: Quit your corporate job and work for yourself. I knew it would be hard to quit my job and go off on my own (No Al B. Sure), but it was much harder than I ever expected. Yeah, I accomplished some of the goals that were sitting on the back-burner for YEARS. However, I was not as EXCEPTIONAL as I SHOULD have been.
When I took my hiatus from the corporate world, it gave me more time to explore the world of Fabglance. When I started this blog, I wanted to do more than write about fashion. I wanted to teach people how to be more fashionable. It took a little while to get started, but over the years I’ve styled models, local celebs, and working women. I … Continue reading Behind the Scenes: #StyledbyFabglance

From filmmakers, to writers & bloggers, to style gurus, creative freelancers, like myself, are the MOST underpaid employees in the workforce. Read more: Continue reading MOTIVATION: Not for Free!
I’m not successful and I know why! And you’re not successful either, so let’s talk about it. I’ve been a blogger for NINE years, NINE! You’d think, within two years, I should be riding high on that sweet delicious blog money! I should have all the high-dollar collabs, photos popping, getting sent out to amazing destinations, and not giving the sad face to my skeptical bank account. But, in my new quest to get ONE MILLION FOLLOWERS I realized my behaviors have definitely stopped me from being farther in the game than I should be. And, because I want to help you do better in your endeavors, I thought I’d bring you along for the ride. Here’s the FIVE reasons why I’m not successful:
