If you happen to be a close friend of a blushing bride-to-be, you're probably tasked with the sweet challenge of throwing the perfect bachelorette party for the lucky girl. My friends at Limousine Houston have created the ultimate guide for throwing that fabulous night out before the big day, right here in the city — party bus style.Read More
I love to sleep. (Who doesn't?)
In the words of Jhene Aiko, "If I had it my way, I'd roll out of bed, say, 'bout 2:30 mid day."
I was never a morning person growing up. I was known to wait until the last possible minute to get up and go to class or work, and I could always be found still asleep in bed way past noon every Saturday.Read More
There's nothing worse than wanting to sleep and not being able to. Whether you suffer from insomnia (like I used to) or you simply get restless at night (from thinking about all of your exciting ideas in life), losing out on valuable sleep time can wreak havoc in your daily routine. You're tired, you're groggy, you're not as focused, and your skin isn't at peak glow. All bad.Read More
"I don't know where to start."
How many times have you said that to yourself or to someone else?
I know so many people who have these really cool side hustle ideas, but they have no clue (or at least they think they don't) about how to get one started.Read More
I love cookies.
Back when I was a kid who watched Sesame Street everyday, one of favorite characters was, as you can probably guess, the Cookie Monster. A cookie was the first thing both my dad and grandma taught me how to bake. And my love for cookies is the main reason why I'm never bikini ready each time summer rolls around.
Cookies, among other desserts, are my weakness, so when I find a new place around town that makes good treats, I become obsessed. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you my latest obsession: Crumbville, TX.Read More
The Devil Wears Prada is one of my favorite movies. It's one of those films I watch on TV every time it airs, all the way through, without ever getting bored. From the mentions of fashion designers I love to the brilliant performance by Meryl Streep as the iconic Miranda Priestley, it's truly a classic.
What if God is really saving you for someone?
What if the cause of our long-standing singledom is the simple fact that someone out there is currently praying to God to save us for them?
I love my sorority.
I've had the privilege and pleasure of being a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated for over three years.
Over the course of my journey in AKAland, I've been able to tap into its vast network of intelligent, creative women from across the country. And in turn, I've come across several talented bloggers and content creators, both in "real" life and through social media, who also share the bond of AKA sisterhood.Read More
Insecure is the most refreshing show I've watched all year.
Seeing college educated black women brunch, club, date, and kill it at work. Seeing AKA sorority paraphernalia on Molly's desk and Issa tying her scarf at night to lay those edges. I love seeing us be us, in all of our magical black girl glory.Read More
