The King Size Bed

Since I’ve been home with my parents I’ve had time to sit down and plan out my goals and aspirations for the future. So obviously I made sure to do everything else I needed to do instead of really diving into my personal feelings. However I recently had switched rooms so my cousin could move...

Confidence: For a Big Girl

this past week I finally caught up with an old friend and while talking about current trends, dating big girls came up. I am not sure what exactly brought the subject up but she stated that with big girls making a statement, dating a big girl feels like a trend – please keep in mind...

Small Updates…

It’s been a month since I’ve posted anything. Life has been crazy. I’ve been working on my teaching certification, pre-requisites for my MBA, and working full time. As a result I overworked myself with those 3 things AND I’ve actually had social things to do almost every weekend. That is out of the norm for...

Black Girls Rock Part 2

  It’s taken me a few days to finish this but I had a test to study for… anyway. BGR had some incredible performances during the show and I also had to highlight the M.A.D. Girls as well. Youth is such an important part of our nation and we need to invest in them more....

Black Girls Rock

She did an awesome job hosting, looked fabulous doing it, and...

Mental Restoration

  It is nearing the end of March and the first quarter of the year is almost over. Winter gloom has left and spring has entered the building. Most people have forgotten their new years resolution by now and are sinking into the abyss of day to day life. With the end of the holiday...

A Confident Woman

A couple of weeks ago my friend Shatise came to Houston to celebrate a friend’s engagement. While she was here she wanted to take pictures to capture the moments before heading home. After the weekend was over and she returned home she noticed something. Every time she wanted to take a picture of me or...

Looking Back

This morning I woke up and headed to Corpus Christi, TX. I knew this could be emotional for me but I don’t think I was fully prepared for all the feelings it would bring back. You see I came here for a baby shower for a friend. He’s not just any friend. He was my...

Expectation vs. Reality

I had a list of things that I expected for myself by the age of  30. A flourishing career, a husband, a kid or 2, a substantial savings account and a house. Not a single thing on this list has come to life. I am as single as it gets, no kids, in an apartment...

I Turned 30 Today

I think that we all have an expectation of where our lives are supposed to be at 30 and rarely do any of us meet those expectations. Now there is a small percentile of the human race that seems to actually have set goals for 30 and met them all. For those of you my...
