After 25 ...

A couple weeks ago I turned 26 and I had to sit down and thank the Lord for allowing me to see 26 years on this earth. I had to really think about how fortunate I am at this still VERY YOUNG age. It’s still so much for me to learn but I’m starting to see my vision and true purpose as to why I’m here.
It would not be me to not have any lessons learned while I endured and got through 25. Here’s just a few that will stick with me forever.

  • Life has no problem humbling you all the way down. I use to think I was so well off and I had this and that, but when something happened to me where I could no longer be independent and eventually become dependent on others, it made me realize that material things can be taken away from you in a blink of an eye. Never think for ONE second that you have it all because you do not!!! Take my advice lol.
  • Love is meant to build you into an even stronger person. Don’t look at other people’s relationship and see that as #GOALS, make your own goals, make your own mistakes, and make your own breakthroughs.  There will be arguments and times when you want to give up but if that person means a lot to you, you try and fight for it, that’s how you become #GOALS
  •  Lastly, you will endure a lot of test, whether it’s financially or at work, they will happen but test are there to allow you to learn and grow! You will get through it, you will think everyone hates you in the office or your big mess up will cost you your job, but admitting to your mistakes and learning from them is how you pass these life test.


25 is a CRAZY but exciting age, just when you think you’ve learned all you can learn and done all that you can do, 25 comes a long and teaches a whole new set of ropes! It’s a lovely thing!

Glow Baby Glow

Hey ladies, I’m back with a new post. Have you ever tried to achieve a soft glowy NOT SHINY face with your brand new cleanser only to have absolutely no luck? It’s not that these products don’t work, but sometimes you just have to prep your skin a bit before doing them. Here is one of my favorite glowing exfoliating scrubs that I like to use to get that radiant look going on, but before I use that scrub here is what I do.
  • Grab half a lemon and rub that all over my face (I like to let it sit for about 10-15 minutes)
  • Rinse that off and go grab my African Black Soap and just do a gentle cleanse.
  • Then I grab my exfoliating glow scrub, and rub that in circular motions all over my face.
    • Special tip: let that exfoliator sit on your skin for about 10 minutes so you can soak up all the goodness of it
  • Once that’s complete, wash the cleanser off, spray your face with your toner (I use rose water with glycerin) and put on your favorite moisturizer (mine is my organic coconut oil or my tea tree moisturizer by Monie Squared) and Walah! Glowy skin you’ve been wanting.

Try these steps the next time you want to achieve your glowy skin and watch as you shine bright like a diamond!

Fitting Room Chronicles: TJ MAXX

Shopping is a girl’s best friend if you let me tell it! I can go to the mall for hours by myself, find gorgeous pieces, hold them until my arms feel like noodles, only to bombard the fitting room with a mini photo shoot! I am an avid TJ Maxx lover and the fact they have no limit on how many pieces you can bring in your room makes then 10x better.

TJ Maxx has the best deals and what I love about them is they are always rotating their wardrobe so visiting every two weeks is a must. I’ve purchased so many trendy sweaters (cowl neck, slits on the side, oversized, etc) from them the past two months and here’s a few pictures of me, I guess you can say “FEELING MYSELF” as I was trying a few pieces on. It also doesn’t hurt that they have AMAZING lighting in the fitting rooms as well.


OH YEA, did you know you can now shop on their website, HOLY GRAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I THINK THAT’S PERFECT FOR EXTENDED SIZES AND FINDING PIECES THAT MAY BE IN OTHER STORES!

What have you found in TJ Maxx lately that you've absolutely adored?

Favorite Fragrances







As you get older, your love for perfume just magnifies! I am a lover of all sweet smelling fragrances as well as unisex ones. Spraying your favorite scent not only makes you feel good but it also gives you a BOOST of confidence, like you can tackle any and everything that comes your way, rather it’s a big test or an important meeting with your boss. Before this weekend, I only had three scents I absolutely adored, M.A.C Turquatic, DKYN Green Apple, and lastly Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum. However, after visiting Saks this past weekend I received a sample of the Chanel Mademoiselle and I absolutely fell in love. It’s definitely a young woman scent that seems to linger around for hours, maybe I’ll get a bottle for Christmas, who knows! Tell me some of your must-have favorite scents!
