So … About My Natural Hair Journey …

Ok. So. I . Decided . To. Go. Natural. 

****First and foremost, I want to thank all the beautiful women that surround me daily. You guys have been such an inspiration, and it has been with helping hands and the influence of all of you naturally amazing ladies that I even thought about giving this a go. You guys are a daily muse, each and every one of you. xoxo

Now, I didn’t do the BIG CHOP… I couldn’t do it. Praises to all of you that had the balls to do it, you all will forever be my heroes.

However, I did decide to go natural through transitioning. Transitioning to natural hair  is a simple process of growing out your natural texture before cutting off the processed hair or damaged ends. Transitioning can sometimes be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be completely complicated. (more…)

Letter From The Editor: Passion + Motivation … one in the same

Each week, I hear from people who say things like, “I start with good intentions, but I can’t seem to maintain my consistency for a long period of time.”

Or, they will say, “I struggle with keeping on track. I get started but I can’t seem to follow through and stay focused for very long.”

Sound familiar? Yea, me too. Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. (more…)

17 Questions To Ask Yourself Before You Move to a Big City

So, I’ve moved one big huge time in my life. I am originally from Torrance, California. When I was 16, my family moved to Virginia. My second move in life was to North Carolina to start college. Initially when I was younger, I hated change. As I get older… I embrace it. I started my own business, that is doing pretty well, and after I finish up grad school I am on my way to another big move… The move to build my brand! This move is exciting, and starting up in a new city can be tough, especially if you aren’t prepared to handle some of the gradations moving to a new area will cause. Here’s a list of questions I’d recommend anyone who’s thinking about braving a new city to consider before making their next move.

1. Can I afford it?

I know this sounds obvious, but you can’t budget enough when you’re thinking about jumping ship to a new city. Last minute expenses will always come up and although we all hope for that silver lining to appear right when we need it, the less you can count on that lucky break by covering your grounds monetarily, the smoother that transition will be. Tip: whatever you’ve budgeted for your move, double it. If you can afford it still, you’re in good shape. (more…)

Hey Guys !

I usually am crazy active with my blog, but these last few weeks I haven’t been able to be up here like I’ve wanted.

In some of my previous posts, I have mentioned some of my business ventures coming up in the following months. All these projects have definitely been keeping me busy! I’m going to make a promise to myself to AT LEAST do the journal challenges everyday this week, after all … we are leading up to my birthday!

I appreciate the few of you that have asked me where have I been, that means the world to me! Well, I am launching my business officially in April, so that has been crazy. Business has been picking up, so I’m all over the place. I find that once the weather picks up, business always gets better so I’m grateful for that. I’m still working out some minor details as far as the event planning and production aspect, but the printing side is up and ready and booming! (more…)
