Lately, I haven’t been working out, eating like I should. Let’s call it happy complacency. But last week, I got the fire under my butt and decided that there’s no time like the present to get back in the gym, and go back to my healthy eating habits. How many times have you said that you’re going to go on a diet, and then failed two days later ladies and gents? I’ve found the best way to circumvent the diet flip flop is meal prep, and prayer. Let me share #alittletrick that helps me get through the week. I drink a…

Summer went way too fast, didn’t it folks? We’re a week into fall, and I’ve already felt the changes in the weather. Between the sun going down earlier and the ominously cool breeze blowing every once in awhile, I was reminded to switch my beauty products regimen. Oh!

You know, I just spoke to a class at Morgan about bullying and violence in college, and my experience with it. I’d been hesitant to speak out about it before, because I didn’t want to be seen as weak, but as I’ve gotten older I realized that my story could administer help to some young woman. So I had to put that need before my pride. This generation of women has a predilection towards glamorizing fights, and it has to stop. My heart hurts so bad for Amy Joyner and her family.
