    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…

    Healthy Poppin’ Nails

    Ever since high school I’ve been lowkey obsessed with nails. My twin sister’s nails have been my inspiration for years. Her nails are strong, long, and healthy. I’ve damaged and healed my nails multiple times. The damage I’ve encountered was from not properly taking off acrylic nails and getting acrylic nails in general. Getting nails back healthy isn’t a quick process and you have to make sure you take care of them after they’re back poppin’. I have some tips, from over the years, that help me get my nails back together and some tips for keeping them poppin’. Tips for poppin’ Nails It takes my nails about a full…

    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,…

    CRÚ Food & Wine Bar

      I went to Atlanta, about two weeks ago, with my future mother-in-law and my Dani to help my sister move into her new apartment. Little did I know, they had a special night for me. They decided to take me out to celebrate since I’m getting married. YAY! They picked a restaurant called CRU located at the Avalon shopping mall in Alpharetta, GA. The vibe, food, and wine were right up my ally. The Atmosphere   We sat on the inside, which looks amazing. They have a wine wall! Talk about inspiration for my future house. It felt cozy and it wasn’t too cold inside. I hate going to restaurants and it feels…

    Wild Growth Hair Oil

    Being on a healthy natural hair journey can sometimes be tough. There are a number of products that claim hair growth. I’ve tried a number of different hair vitamins, oils, treatments, you name it. You just have to figure out what works for you. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t take care of my hair like I should. I don’t wear scarves at night, I use body towels to dry it and I was a shampooer, literally every time I washed my hair, I would shampoo it. Talk about dry scalp. My mother gave me a bottle of this wild growth hair oil. I knew what it was because of ads…

    Work That Body

    You want your body tight, do it right. As women, we are always trying to fit this mold of how our bodies should look, which is pretty unnatural. Everyone has a different body type and everyone can’t look the same. I see the women on Instagram and even I sometimes want to look like them. The popular artist and Instagram models have affected how women want their bodies to look. Every day women are getting plastic surgery like butt implants, breast implants, and some are even having their ribs removed. I, personally, don’t think that is something we should do. Love what your mama gave ya!  All of the things you are…

    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…

    Healthy Hair, Happy You

    I have been natural, meaning without a relaxer, for all of my life. However, I have acquired quite a bit of damage from things like dying and straightening my hair more than a normal person should. Box hair dye is no joke and it definitely doesn’t help when you flat iron your hair at 450 degrees. I didn’t start wearing my hair in its natural state until the summer before I started college. I was never comfortable wearing it curly in public so, even if I wore it curly, I would always straighten it before the week started. Washing my hair and seeing no curls whatsoever hurt my soul. I…
