3 Ways I'm Looking to Grow in 2017

I took a break for the past few days to spend time with friends and family, practice self care and map out how I want this year to go. Last year I set goals and pushed myself to Do Better and it resulted in me becoming [somewhat] more consistent and realizing the value I have in the platforms I’ve created.

3 Signs You NEED a Break

Even though I promised myself I’d be more consistent, I definitely took a mini break from blogging last month. Since my trip to Greece,  work has made me so busy to the point where I just stopped writing due to lack of time.

Year 30: 2016 Goals

Year 30 2016 Goals

I’m turning 30 years old this spring, so I’ve been calling 2016 ‘Year 30’. 2015 was great, but I definitely want to make this year better. I’ve been living on my own for over four years, but there’s something about turning thirty to me that says “you’re a real adult now”. In addition to trying to tackle the rest of the items in my 30 before 30 list, here are...

How I Manage Multiple Blogs When Working Full Time

Happy 2016! If you didn’t know by now, I write on two platforms. I’ve been blogging on my own since 2013 and in the end of summer 2014, two friends and I launched Type 4 Naturals to document our natural hair journey and connect with women in the natural hair community interested in fitness, beauty, family, business and technology.
