Y’all morning people might be onto something. I’ve been up since 6am and I’ve already been to the gym, answered emails and ran my errands for the day. My personality isn’t sparkling quite yet (I’m not a warm welcoming person before noon) but at least I’m being productive! Lol. Happy Monday! ❤️ c/o:

The next time I see a brand blaming their lack of diversity on the fact that bloggers of color “don’t convert” or “appeal to their audience,” I’m going to share with them the story of these
@freepeoplejeans. Because I, a Black girl, took a brand that does very little—if any—outreach to minority markets and moved so many units that it’s been 2 weeks and my affiliate network still hasn’t been able to get a total tally. I did it organically, unsponsored, and with zero post promotions. So, to all the brands who’ve convinced themselves that Black women don’t fit with their brand culture:
With $1.2 trillion in buying power, WE ARE THE CULTURE.

It’s taken me my whole life to get this fine. But good things come to those who ......endure acne, braces, pencil thin 90’s brows, tacky blue eyeshadow, and a weird obsession with smelling like a Bath & Body Works ‘Sweet Pea’ distillery. Thank god for growth! Lol // photo:

#adWe took a trip to @petsuppliesplusand put together the perfect Starter Kit for new puppy parents. Bash picked out a comfy bed (even if he refuses to use his own), a few plush toys to rip the stuffing out of, food, a matching leash and collar ('cuz fashion), tags, food and, of course, waste baggies. Everything you need to start a life with your new best friend!

Happy Monday and Memorial Day! Signed, the one auntie who invested well, retired young and hardly ever shows up for family functions because she stay on vacation. The rest of the family thinks she’s bougie, but she’s your favorite because she’s funny AF, gives the best advice and gifts, doesn’t judge you.... plus she let you drive her Benz to prom. // photo:

Have you ever stolen anything? I have. I was 6 and it was a box of tampons. Before being placed in foster care, I was raised by my grandmother—who was the same age I am now. (It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around that sometimes.) One day I overheard her tell someone on the phone that she needed tampons, but didn’t have the money to buy them. Though I was too young to know what they were, I could read well enough to identify them on a store shelf and I wanted to help her. So on our next trip to the store, I tucked a small box underneath my shirt and scurried out of the store. I giggle a little now when I think about it, because I must have looked ridiculous. Lol.
But stories like my grandmother’s aren’t uncommon. Every day, women all over of this country struggle with “period poverty”—having to choose between their daily essentials like bills and food and...DAILY ESSENTIALS (bc that’s what they are) like pads and tampons.
So, I’ll be attending an event this Thursday with @chicagoideas,
@walgreensand @ubykotexto discuss period poverty in Chicago and how it disproportionately affects women and communities of color. Tickets are only $15, and you can get an additional 10% off. Swipe for more details and get your tickets at the link in bio. Let’s #endperiodpovertywith #chicagoideas

@renttherunwayfor the perfect dress for my 10 year college reunion. I still can’t get over this fit! STILL! The Unlimited service was an easy way to switch up my wardrobe for the weekend without the long-term commitment and I was able to donate the money I saved to my beloved Spelman College. 💙 #myRTR

Not too bad for having graduated from college TEN YEARS ago, huh? 😏 This reunion weekend has been some much needed time with my Spelman Sisters. But I have to admit, I can’t party like I used to. I don’t know who told our old asses we were still cut out for this life. We are NOT. lol
GIVEAWAY ALERT! As you guys know I’ve been on a quest for healthier skin this year. It’s meant cutting certain foods from my diet and finding the right products to address my hormonal acne and hyperpigmentation. Thank goodness for @drunkelephant! I’ve been using several products from their line and I love them ALL! (You know I wouldn’t say it if it wasn’t true.) One of the products I’ve been using every morning is the C-Firma Day Serum and it’s really improved my hyperpigmentation.
DE recently sent me a stash of goodies and I’ve decided to pass the C-Firma along to you guys to try! (so #notsponsored) To enter: 1) Follow me (duh!) and @drunkelephant, 2) like this post, 3) sign up for my newsletter on my website, & 4) Leave me a comment letting me know your personal skin goals. I’ll choose a random winner on Tuesday, 5/21.
Swipe to see where my skin is now (March ‘19) and what it looked like a little over a year ago (April ‘18) at the height of my breakout.
#metgalahas my creative juices flowing and on the hunt for the perfect dress for this summer’s #AGORASneakerball. Chicago peeps, raise your hand if you’re going 🙋🏾♀️ Raise both hands if object to me showing up naked in some high top Chucks 🙅🏾♀️ ... bc right now that’s what it’s looking like. 😩 // photo: @victoriagamlenphotography
