Through out most of last week, I kept thinking about friends...and how we go our separate ways even though that's not how we ever saw things playing out. Sort of allowing people to grow and accepting that sometimes that growth will not include you. While I was thinking of my own role in friendship breakups, … Continue reading On Friendship Breakups

Incoming repost. 😅 I wrote this one in the thick of uncertainty and my own insecurities. Somehow, I find myself here again. Where is all this headed? Does this matter?

An idea I first saw from Justynlove. So here goes; I was... Attending. Virtual meetings. My best kind … Continue reading Out with the old, in with the new!
It's been a whole two weeks since the Afrobloggers Challenge ended. And I know this update is coming in much later but the Challenge was won by Elise over at Letters from this heart.

I was always so vocal about what fashion trends worked for people (and yes I know what fashion trends would work for me … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: A change of mindset.
Of late, I have been drawn to the headwraps. I just love them. I think they make a great statement, wrap up a look and go with everything. Which is always a catch for fashion. Something that's comfortable and can go with everything 👌🏿. I also like the fact that they make a messy bad … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: Headline with the headwrap
