Health Chronicles: My Dental Journey

If there’s one thing I’ve been certain of pretty much since I was 9 years old; it’s that I have a beautiful smile. And I don’t say that in a conceited or braggadocios way, but it’s literally the one thing I’ve liked about myself pretty consistently…that is until now. I share a lot about my…

Fashion Recap 2018 – 12 Fav Looks

While the close of the year always becomes a time of reflection about what I’ve done, where I’ve been and how I can do better, I tend to think these things throughout the year anyway so it’s not as deep as some might expect it to be. So this year, I decided to keep things…

Ted x Talk: I Owe My Energy to Myself

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, and I have to be completely honest and say that’s been intentional. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve seen me recycle old looks on my grid.
