    Wine & Design

    At the end of the Spring season, I make a list of things I want to do during the summer. This summer, my list consists of different places I want to see and different things I want to try. I had never attended a Wine & Design event before and figured this would be the perfect chance for me to do so with a couple of my friends. If any of you are unfamiliar with Wine & Design, it’s a paint and sip franchise. You sip wine and paint. After signing up for a spot in the class, I was a bit hesitant to go. I’m not an artist by any means nor…

    4 Ways to Stay Disciplined!

    Lately I’ve noticed that a lot of my disappointments are from goals not being met or things not being accomplished. I find that I am my own enemy at times. There are projects that I’ve wanted done, weight I’ve wanted gone, and numerous other tasks that are merely started. After taking a moment to allow myself to be a victim, I really sat and pondered on why the things I want most I have barely achieved. It all boiled down to one word, DISCIPLINE! I have little to no self discipline. So my goal for the next few months is to strengthen myself in that area. Here’s how:   Plan…

    M3: Mind, Meditation & Movement

    As you guys know, I’ve been going through somewhat of a self discovery stage at this point in my life. I’ve been trying new things so that I can truly figure out what I like and want out of life. I came across a workshop on Eventbrite called M3: Mind, Meditation & Movement. The purpose of the event was to discover the power of different breathing techniques and to try guided mediation. I decided to give it a shot because I’ve been looking for ways to clear my mind of negativity so that I can focus on the positives. Going into the workshop, I had no idea what to expect,…

    Becoming a Woman

    Lately, I’ve been going through a lot of changes. Not so much my body, but more so a change in the things I enjoy and what I want out of life. I’ve noticed small changes within myself like the colors I like, the food I eat and even my interests. I feel like i’m evolving into a grown woman. These feelings have led me to a lot of reflecting with not only myself, but the ones around me. I’ve realized that my feelings toward certain friendships and relationships aren’t as they were before. For once in my life, i’m genuinely not bothered by the thought of losing a friendship. I’ve grown content with the…

    I’m Back & I’m Betta

    Its been forever since I wrote a post, but I’m back! Breaks are good for the soul, especially when you are going through changes. I wanted to do my social media break for just a week, it ended up being about two. I’m proud I did it so long. I went on the break initially because we went on a cruise for our honeymoon and we couldn’t use our phones. Well, they had Wi-Fi on the cruise but who was paying that? This allowed us to be in the moment together, it was beautiful. We actually relaxed and enjoyed each other on our honeymoon. I’ve realized that I was addicted…

    Can Memories Be Hereditary ?

    Can Memories Be Hereditary?? My husband and I tend to converse about the conspiracies, myths, and mysteries of the world. We’re always questioning things and discussing and/or debating our views on them. He’s always finding new interesting ideas and bringing them to me to discuss. The most recent discussion we had stemmed from our pup, Manny.  Since birth no one has had to teach him the characteristics of a dog, he has lived with us since he was 6 weeks old and from then, he has behaved very wolf like. The reason Dre (my husband) was so interested in this was because when Manny would do anything that we couldn’t…

    Rich Dad Poor Dad: A Book Review

    Rich Dad, Poor Dad: On my quest for wealth, I have started reading a ton of books on business and self improvement.  Rich Dad, Poor Dad was actually one the first financial books I had ever read. My husband, boyfriend at the time told me about this book years ago. I read it, not really understanding what it meant or how to apply its principles. I read this book again recently and I must say it is a great read!  It opened my eyes to so many new concepts and ideas. I learned the way different streams of income work. It taught me how to see past the mind of an…

    Social Media Break

    I feel like technology and social media can really be an addiction and a distraction to everyday life. I find myself on social media multiple times a day, for hours, looking at stuff that is basically pointless. When I was in college I would literally be on my phone during class, like not even paying attention to anything my professors were saying. You know how when you’re watching Netflix and you don’t realize it’s been like 5 hours. That’s how I️ am with Instagram or YouTube. I always wanted to take a break from it because I find myself reaching for the phone first thing in the morning to check Facebook,…

    Ahhhh, my life is changing !!!!

    New life, who dis? The last four years of my life have been pretty routine: wake up, walk my dog, go to class, come home, do homework, and relax. I worked on the days I didn’t have class and I rarely went out. I was comfortable in this cycle, it was simple. In less than a month, my life is going to change completely. Instead of going to my graduation, I’m getting married! Why? Because my school doesn’t call your name individually, they call you as a department and everyone who is graduating has to stand. THAT’S WACK!! We’ve also been engaged for two years now. It’s literally the time to do…
