If you are not following Dayna Bolden, I don’t know what rock you have been living under but you need to go follow her ASAP. Dayna is one of the influencers that inspires me through being her authentic and true self. She inspires women everyday to do things with love, passion and style while being authentic. When I saw that she was hosting her first event, I knew I had to be in the building. I heard Dayna speak for the first time at BlogHer a few months ago and was truly inspired by all the gems she dropped and how welcoming she was to talk and take pictures with everyone after her panel was over. I was so excited when I secured my ticket for The Bold Experience because they went pretty fast. I couldn’t wait to network with other women and catch up with a few blogger friends. Overall, I couldn’t wait for this event! The first thing

This weather has been something else lately. It was really cold then it was warm now its rainy. I wish Mother Nature would make up her mind lol. Today on the blog is another Black Owned Business feature. I was introduced to Fro Butter in my Onyx Box last year and loved it. I also became an ambassador for 6 months which was pretty exciting. I got to learn more about the brand and discover some new staple hair products for not only myself but the guys in my life. Here is a video showing how I demo the African Black Soap that you can use to cleanse your hair and body. CLICK HERE TO WATCH! Fro Butter was founded in 2012 by Susana Stewart who was looking for products that were safe and effective. I will admit that I didn’t always look at the ingredients on my hair products but I am more conscious now. I love that Fro Butter
Before I get into today’s post, I wanted to get into my announcement first. I’ve been in a conflicted space with my blog and made the decision to scale back to posting every other week for a while. You will get 1-2 post every other week and an occasional video. The next time I will be posting is the first full week of November. I will go into greater detail later but still check back on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you have been following me before I switched platforms, I was subscribed to Onyx Box for a while. This is a Black Owned beauty subscription box that was one of my favorites. When I saw that they were discontinuing the box, I had to get a box one last time. CLICK HERE TO WATCH!! So that is it for the last Onyx Box. Have you tried any of the products mentioned? Comment below and let me know. Have a great

When you hear the words social media, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it a place where you share your life or a place where you are trying to become “instantly” famous or a place to promote your business? I feel like social media is driving everything and somewhat ruining our lives. I remember one day last week YouTube went down. I didn’t know anything about it until I logged into Twitter(which I am struggling to utilize lol) and saw the commotion. Like what would everyone do if YouTube went away? What would you do if all social media went away? Would you still be able to promote your business by word of mouth or the old fashion way before social media took over? Would you be able to function in society without being glued to your phone? I remember being out one day and I saw a family out to eat and all of them
I posted this on my previous platform back in July and wanted to re-share this with you. Enjoy. It is nice to admire others and inspire to be like them but it is also nice to be your own goals. It seems like social media has taken over and driving just about everything so you see your goals and aspirations from your favorite influencer to celebrity. It is so easy to get caught up in other people’s lives that you start to think that is how your life is supposed to go. You see your favorite Youtuber purchasing a new house, expensive car, going on shopping sprees, dating the hottest guy and so on. You see this and say to yourself, I want those things but in reality does it fit you and your current lifestyle? I’ll admit to purchasing some things I see others purchasing online but I will stop myself when it is something way out of my
When I was growing up, it was a whole different meaning of success. You would graduate from high school, go to college, earn your degree, get a job, work your way up the company latter to get to that office with all the windows and be there for 30 something years until it is time to retire. You also had a big house, nice family, married with children and purchased a boat during retirement. This is what I saw on T.V. a lot and thought I had to follow this path. This is not the case today. Now people are not working for traditional companies anymore and becoming entrepreneurs. You are not staying at one job for many years, you are kind of hoping around until you can find a company you love or you have a side hustle that you dream of making full time. Everyone doesn’t go to college or earn degrees, we don’t need the big house
