    Blood is Thicker Than Water, Always.

    Blood is Thicker Than Water, Always.

    Being bullied from middle school throughout high school was a very life changing experience, however it built character. Personally, I find myself still learning about myself in the midst of forgiveness and healing, but that’s what life is all about. I remember being tormented in my last year of eighth grade and coming home crying to my older brother about my appearance and how much I wanted to look like a different girl.

    Three Down ____ To Go?

    Three Down ____ To Go?

    The year was 2017. I came across a photo of one of my favorite instagrammers, Kiloni Lee. “Yesssss sis! This picture is so cute!” I thought to myself. After admiring her location and poses, I realized the more intricate detail in the image. Her tattoo. “Wait. I’ve been waiting for a cute idea for so long! That tatt is so fire! Let me zoom in,” I said to myself as I used my thumb and index finger to get a closer look. Now, I don’t know what the hell was written on the side of her foot, but I was well aware that it was in Arabic. “Hmm, if I want an Arabic written tatt, what would it say?” 2017 was the year that woke my love for Bob Marley’s music. Not common coming from a Jamaican, huh? I know. I figured I’d want it to say One Love. Well, in this case...حب واحد.

    Was 2010-2012 An Era or What?

    Was 2010-2012 An Era or What?

    Sheesh, being birthed in 1997 made it super hard for me to find a future celebrity husband. I grew up admiring acts like B2K, Jodeci, Blackstreet, Tyrese, B5, Lloyd, D4L, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, Andre 3000, Usher, and so many more. Each of these talented acts have contributed mere greatness to Hip-Hop and R&B. Even those who paved the way were fine. I mean, have y'all seen the Jackson 5 in their prime? If I was a 60s girl I know Eddie Kendricks from the The Temptations would've had me wrapped around his fingers. One thing about my imagination, it never allowed me to settle for unrealistic thoughts. I've always wanted to create scenarios in my head about meeting my celebrity man crush backstage and eventually marrying him, but it didn't feel right with any of these artists who came before my time because when I finally arrived at the fangirl age age, these folks were married, divorced, or had children my age. No thanks.

    Get Into This NOSTALGIA, Honey!

    Get Into This NOSTALGIA, Honey!

    There is nothing that makes me feel the way music makes me feel. Music is the gateway to my heart. Growing up in the Bronx from the late 90s into the early 2000s played a huge role in my musical knowledge. Every time I reminisce on my childhood, the music holds the centerpiece of my attention. I remember days when I would come home from school and my two older brothers and I had no responsibilities whatsoever. We would watch music videos all afternoon from Ashanti to TLC to Mariah Carey and Puff Daddy. When I started singing, I was around six years old and I sang Usher's Let It Burn to my mom and she smiled so hard! R&B music has been mighty tasteful to me from such an early age. Throughout my life I've always been drawn to learning more about it, especially because it is such an essential fragment of black culture. Simply growing up and hearing songs on the radio about love and relationships created an open door for me to do my research as a child. With that being said, I started singing The Temptations, The Jackson 5, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, and all the other phenomenal Motown acts at only eleven years old. I fell in love with the 60s and there was nothing that I wanted more than a time traveling machine. Yes, I was aware that this was a very crucial and uncertain era for people of color, but the music alone made me want to take a trip back in time. Although I have a ton of love for the 60s, I also began dabbling into the 80s/90s. What y'all know about New Jack Swing? There is something about the roughness and sensuality of the way the instruments were incorporated into the music made by Bobby Brown, Babyface, New Edition, Guy and so many more! We call that "babymaking music." I'm always told that I have an old soul, and it shows in my music choice whenever I get a hold of the aux, but it's definitely prevalent in my fashion choice too. This era makes me realize that it's so much deeper than the music. The entertainment, the fashion, and music made it worthwhile. Remember oversized hoop earrings, high waist jeans and baggy windbreakers before we starting recycling those very same pieces today? Remember films like Love Jones and Sister Act 2? Even shows like Living Single and A Different World!

    Health Meets Wealth

    Health Meets Wealth

    Being healthy means far more staying in shape physically. Being healthy means to be well off in the physical, mental and emotional aspect. Remember what it was like to be able to travel without fear of being a COVID victim? Remember what it was like to walk around and shop without purposefully keeping six feet? Or how about going out to eat without having to grab your food from the curbside? I'll say that these were things that I definitely took for granted! In March I was supposed to finally go on a two year anticipated trip with my cousin to Guadaloupe. That was the exact week in which everyone was ordered to stay at home. Ever since then I felt down. I was going through a tough break up and I wanted to see my friends, I wanted to enjoy life outside and live as freely as possible, but instead Miss Rona came about and took over. I was extremely mentally drained. Since March, I can truly say that I've experienced a ton of growth, a solid amount of self realization and a sense of self betterment. I went from waking up sad almost every day with the blinds closed and staying on my phone just to scroll aimlessly on social media and barely eating throughout the day to waking up with a purpose. Blessed to see every day, I started a new routine. It allowed for me to feel better from the inside out. After waking up I aim to not touch my phone for a while and instead of doing that I replace it with these things:
