My Word For October Is Consistency

I can't believe it's already October 1st! This year has been a whirlwind of craziness for me. From opening my coworking space in Atlanta, to getting a business partner for BGB, to realizing I kind of hate living in Atlanta, to trying to grow my businesses. It's been a lot. I let my own projects fall to the wayside because I've been so focused on work[...]

Pampering At Style Mobb Studio

Last Wednesday I decided to go to Style Mobb Studio here in Atlanta. I got my hair done there last November when they had only been open for a few months and even back then I loved the service I received so when Tiffan'e, the owner, reached out about me coming back (that's a great way to get repeat customers btw) I was all for it. I've neglected my self[...]

Working From | Joe & The Juice

I've decided to start a new series on the blog called 'Working From' where I highlight some of the places I work when I decide to leave my house. This is something I've been meaning to do for a while but I put it off because I've been working from home more than anything lately.         A while back I talked about[...]

Quick Coffee Date At Red Bay Coffee

Last weekend Kyle and I decided to get out of the house for a while and one of our stops was Red Bay Coffee Roastery which is near Fruitvale. I've been in love with Red Bay since I first discovered it last year. Here's the story. When we were scoping out Oakland to decide if we wanted to live here we stumbled into a shop called Owl N Wood which is i[...]

I Like My Strawberry Legs

I thought strawberry legs were normal growing up. I think it's because I grew up in a family full of black women and I wasn't allowed to watch a lot of TV. I can remember looking at my grandma's legs and my aunt's legs and noticing the little black dots. I didn't get them until later but I assumed it was something that happened as you got older.[...]

Getting Out Of My Comfort Zone

The other day my husband turned to me and said, "you're too comfortable." It wasn't fun to hear but it's true. I've gotten so comfortable in this little life of mine with my freelance work and my cozy apartment. It's not like I'm rich or anything but I've always been the type of person to be happy with what I have. Lately I've felt very stagnant. I h[...]

Taking Some Time To Be Grateful

You probably can't tell by looking at these photos but the day I took them started in the worst way. I won't go into details but it was one of those days where everything that could go wrong did go wrong. One of the reasons I love having creative friends is that I was able to schedule this shoot with my girl Briana and shooting with her instantly put[...]

My Favorite Outfits Of The Moment | June 2017

Today's lookbook features my favorite casual outfits at the moment. These are the clothing items that I'm wearing all the time. I'm a chronic outfit repeater because.... why not? The age of Instagram has made us think it's bad to be seen in the same thing but if something works I don't try to fix it. https://youtu.be/OILXAo69WFY   Look One[...]

Reflecting On My 24th Year

Tomorrow I'll be 25. I can't believe that I've almost reached my first quarter century! Last year I wasn't excited about my birthday and I have to admit that I'm not all that excited this year either. I did plan a small vacation to Palm Springs this year which is more than I did last year. Baby steps. So... what did I learn in the past year?[...]
