✨NEW POST✨ || The smell of coffee brewing, the sound of birds chirping, the soft daylight coming in between the window blinds... these are a few of the things I absolutely love about mornings! But I didn’t always - in fact, I was NOT a morning person a few years ago. I dreaded getting up anytime before 10am and really didn’t see the appeal of starting my day early (unless it was necessary of course!) But now I treasure the days when I can enjoy my mornings and I’m sharing how I made that transition over on the blog! Link in bio! 💓
💧Wednesday's #tfdtip coming in hot: Drink. That. Water. . . 🗣PSA: I know y'all are sick of hearing me talk about @msrachelhollis but she has CHANGED. MY. LIFE. And I'm here to shout it from the mountain tops. One of my favorite tips she shares in #girlwashyourface is to drink 1/2 your body weight in water each day. . . I know what you're thinking: how do you expect me to do that? It's really not too hard. I grabbed my trusty @tervis and I fill it up four times and BOOM 💥 water goal for the day is met. Plus, water is free, so it's good for you AND frugal. Plus, the number of times you'll have to get up to go to the bathroom will help with your step goals, too 👡. Good for your body. Good for your wallet. Build your best life: turn on the tap, and fill up your glass. . . .
Closed-toe espadrilles are the summer shoe cure I didn't know I needed for an overdue pedicure 😆🙅🏻♀️ I hauled these + my other @asos purchases on my Instagram story yesterday that's still up if you want to watch it! It's saved on my Style story highlight as well. Also, there's a NEW POST on the blog today — Your About Me page should cover everything every reader wants to know before taking a real interest in you and your blog, so I'm sharing my tips on how to write the most effective one to connect with and captivate your audience.

Anyone else love how wearing heels makes you feel? POWERFUL ✖️SEXY is how I feel but it’s not always enough. Who I am adds layers to how the world perceives me. What layers add to the world’s perception of you? ✖️I’m a woman ✖️I’m a millennial ✖️I’m Black Whether it’s corporate America or I’m walking down the aisle of a store, I’m constantly reminded that these demographics matter to the world. . White men Asian men Asian women White women and the list goes on 🙄 That is the order of highest to lowest salaries when comparing genders & race for the SAME position. It’s reflected not just in paychecks, but in opportunities large and small. Being black does not mean you speed up when you see me and my melanin sisters crossing he street. It does not mean you ignore us when we say “excuse me” in the store or you stare when we enter. It doesn’t mean I don’t have a seat at the table or that while at the table I’ve somehow become invisible naturally being evaded by eye contact in the room. .x My layers are growing thick. Have you seen yours adapt too? ✨ ✖️This isn’t an easy topic for me, but I’m constantly confronted by it and refuse to pretend things are ok. If you’re reading this then you shouldn’t pretend either. Acknowledge what you experience. Turning a blind eye is like giving support.
