5. Tatcha Violet C Brightening Serum

This serum is magnificent!! I literally posted about it earlier this month but this serum is so good it needs to be mentioned again and probably have its own post! I was so surprised by the lightweight-ness of the formula as most serums resemble a beauty syrup almost but this serum feels almost like water. It doesn't take much of it and it adds like an instant glow.It is soooooo fabulous!!! Click here for this magical serum!

This month has had such a heavy emphasis on rest for me! This time last year I was resting as I had an unexpected emergency appendectomy on April 1st! It was not an April Fools joke but it totally transformed my life and my perspective on my health and rest!! 
I have a very passionate personality and I go in 1000% when I'm working on my projects and the pause forced upon me last year really helped me see that balance and rest are something that I have to incorporate into my routine in order to fully function at 1000%.
The past couple of weeks it has been very important for me to fully rest as last month I hit a career milestone of achieving a Million Dollar Month in Real Estate🏡 in March! 

As I was preparing for another milestone this month I was reminded in my body and soul to rest again. 

Pause on rushing any plans. 

Reflect on my journey thus far. 

Refuel my body and my mind and my soul with the nourishing self-care practices that fill me back up.

Recenter my thoughts and mindset for the future ahead!

Realign with my higher purpose and spiritual calling. Realign with my personal, spiritual, career, physical, and educational goals.

The month as a whole has been sooo nourishing on so many levels.

I encourage everyone to intentionally hold space for themselves and others when we all go through the different seasons of our lives. Healing and fully resting when our bodies need it is one of the highest forms of self-care ✨ 

"Be patient with yourself as nothing in nature blooms all year long." 🌺 

Allowing yourself to really rest allows you to enter each new season with more tenacity and purpose than the season before.

I'm feeling so good now that I have fully rested and healed my mind, body and soul!

I'm excited because my creative juices are flowing and I'm truly excited to walk in my purpose with even more intentionality.
Stay tuned for more genuine content and thank you for reading this far and sharing in my journey!

MLK Day 2022

This post is a throwback from my 2019 MLK Day essay and still rings true for today in 2022.

MLK Day 2019

Every year I have felt called to write a blog post about MLK Day. For me, it hits home as a holiday that needs to be celebrated! I am a black woman and for me to be able to freely and creatively express myself my ancestors had to endure so much injustice! For me to receive amazing education and the opportunities that I have my ancestors had to protest and believe that their sacrifices were worth it! 

Martin Luther King Jr. was an outspoken and dynamic speaker that urged people to see that the culture of his time was completely okay with the subpar treatment of African Americans. His I Have a Dream Speech was spoken in D.C on 8/28/1963 to almost 250,000 people! 250,000 people heard his "I Have A Dream Speech" 

How hard did he have to work to get to that platform to deliver that speech??

How many days in jail did he accumulate before he was able to deliver this speech?

There was so much fight in this amazing man that impacted millions of people! His speech was given 50 years ago but it is still relevant and impactful today!!
If that is not IMPACTFUL I don't know what is!
In honor of MLK Day, I have shared 2 of my favorite quotes by Dr. King as they are a guiding light for me as I live and work day today!!

1. "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


2. Life's most persistent and urgent question is What are you doing for others?

This question is so key for EVERYBODY! What are you doing today that can impact others for good?

Hope yall enjoyed today's post! It hits home for me and I encourage everyone to not be quiet about any injustices they may see around them as change has to HAS to start with you!!

Til next time,

Peace & Love,
