“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.”

―Winston Churchill

In my head, I quit on my blog at least once a month. I discourage myself. I complain. I get frustrated. I lack creativity. Then out of nowhere, someone will pop up and comment on my blog or someone will inquire about my blog and I feel that pang of excitement all over again. I think about my blog daily. I think about what to write next, I think about how to modify my blog, I love researching new words and phrases and I genuinely love formulating my thoughts for display. In the back of my mind, I do know that the magic is to continue to strive towards my passion because I’m bound to succeed in one way or another. Time to crank up this Black Girl Magic!

Never give up on your passion!!!

Sometimes we all just need a little motivation…

Sparkling Dresses For Your Sparkling Holiday Parties (and beyond…)

Sequins Either you love them or you hate them. The perfect way to stand out in a crowd or if layered correctly, blend into daytime everyday wear.  I LOVE THEM! Because lets be honest, sequins are always appropriate. You don’t have to look like a disco ball to successfully pull off these sequined looks. These…

Favorite Holiday Memories

I’ve noticed that I’ve become a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas and holiday cheer. All of a sudden Christmas music is annoying, office Christmas parties are a drag and if you offer me a glass of Egg Nog, I’m going to throw up. When I think of the holidays, I immediately begin to feel…

My Trip To Munich, Germany

 Our recent family vacation to Munich, Germany. Two words. ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I recently posted about how I was born in Germany and that my family and I would be taking the trip of a lifetime to visit ( It’s Official, I’m Visiting Germany). I was not prepared for the breathtaking scenery, the noteworthy beer and the…

Konfessions: Loner

Have I been a loner all along?

Why does being a loner feel so good? Am I going through a phase in life? Dining alone and watching people soothes me. Am I the only one who enjoys dining alone? Is this depressive? I’m not sad. Maybe I’m just tired of wearing a mask around people 24/7. Is this truly introversion or is the devil trying to isolate me? Enjoying a quiet evening alone with my thoughts in a bathtub full of bubbles with wine in hand is goals, right? Having circles of friends and loved ones that I adore, but not wanting to be bothered. Is that healthy? In a world where everything is so loud, peace and quiet is welcomed. My son is a lot like me. Am I affecting him negatively? I was sheltered as a kid. Would I have been this way if I wasn’t sheltered? Are you born a loner? Should I work on being a better person? Am I now embracing a part of me that I thought was weird?

Who knows…

What I do know is (as I sit smiling alone at a table in Panera Bread)…

I’m happy at this moment in time.

I feel good…

Relationships: What About Your Friends?

I was raised in a home where the motto was “Do not allow females in your home, because you can not trust them.” My mother had long time girlfriends that she grew up with, but there was never a time where her good gal pals came over to the house when they needed to talk or vent…

Hair Chronicles: Blonde Coiled Bombshell

Have you ever been so happy with your hair that you wanted it to stay the same forever? I’ve been on many hair adventures and have experienced the highs and the lows. I’ve been weaved, wigged, pressed, relaxed, braided, updo’d, colored, bobbed, etc. You name it, I’ve done it, however, my most recent experience with chopping it…

Relationships: Ladies, Are We Paying for Dates Now?

Recently, my coworker sparked a major debate in my office. He asked the ladies, what our thoughts were regarding women offering to pay on dates. He felt that if the guy is dating a woman for a certain period of time, that she, at some point, should offer to pay for dinner or offer to…
