    Choosing My Soul

    Choosing oneself…….not as easily done as it is said but……you have to do it, Right. Lately over the course of this year that seems to be what i’m doing. I’ve been ridding myself of any toxicity and negative energy. I cut ties with people who mean my spirit no good and I’ve focused on myself and my progress. Guys this isn’t easy by far, I have been questioning if I am making the right decisions, if i’m right, if what I chose is hurting someone else? I have run these questions in my mind every step of the way but in the end I’m happier and I feel the weight…

    Day Trip to Kentucky

    This past Saturday myself and my kinds went to Owensboro, Kentucky to watch my brother play in his spring scrimmage. We left at 6 am and got to Kentucky around 10 am which was great because I wanted the kids to be able to run around and play and I of course wanted to take great pictures. When we first got there we meet up with my brother and hung out with him for a while before he left to get ready for the game. my mother and I took a walk around the beautiful campus of Kentucky Wesleyan College and I had her take my picture by the waterfall…

    Breakfast Joy

    Eating Breakfast, the food that is not the time of day, is one of my favorites foods to eat but lets face it…..I am far from a morning person. I absolutely hate waking up in the morning…I’d rather sleep in honestly. With my schedule especially who has the time for breakfast? My schedule runs like this: At 5.a.m I wake up shower and get lunches packed and the kids breakfast out (which is normally cereal and milk) Than by 5:15 if time doesn’t move so fast I jump in the shower and get myself dressed, brush my teeth, wash my face and by then Its 5:30 and I gotta get…

    Celebrating Journee

    Happy Halloween everyone!!! I know I’m two days early but life has been hectic lately with all the Halloween parties, fall festivals and Journee’s birthday (she’s a Halloween baby you know!) that’s right a full blood Spooky Scorpio of the night, and her attitude shows it! Lol   Now if you were watching my Instagram stories you can probably tell, we had baby girls birthday party this past Saturday. It was definitely Harry Potter themed. I will admit to this, I’m a last minute event planner which is why I’m not in that line of  business. I waited to long to get her outfit together and someone fell through so…

    Failing

    So today’s blog is about me sharing how I deal with being human and a mother. I know it’s a weird thing right ? Being human? Being a mom? Well let’s get into it…….every single day I play this movie in my head over the decisions I have made and how they effect my children. I think about the things I did wrong, the ways I handled certain situations, did I love on them enough? Did I tell them I love them enough?  Did I forget something that they needed or wanted to do? All these thoughts especially came to mind this past weekend when I realized that I forgot…

    You missed me?

    So I have been missing in action for almost two months now and you’re probably wondering what I’ve been doing! If you’ve paid attention to my Instagram then you probably know that I’ve been working on my clothing brand Tribe of Melanin. Well I’ve finally Launched it and I’m so proud of myself and the products I’ve come up with. It took me almost a year to buy my business license, buy my logo, my merchandise designs, creating my online shop, my business social media accounts and so much more. It’s been so hectic but it’s just the beginning of a long road ahead of being a entrepreneur.    In…

    A letter to self. Have you ever felt the need to speak to your younger self. To give your younger self reassurance. To you know that everything will be ok. That’s what this post is all about. I’m giving myself to opportunity to speak to myself and hopefully encourage you to do the same. Growing up as a kid I was shy and quiet. I keep to myself and has I got older I began opening up more. As I child I didn’t think I was as pretty as the lighter skinned girls or the mixed/ other ethnicity girls at my school. My hair wasn’t long and struggled just a…
