Build Your Own Brand Retreat: Where Dreams Are Realized

The Build Your Own Brand Retreat was amazing.  I came needing some tools to help me progress in my career as a blogger and owner of a digital medial company. I left with not only the tools I needed, but with meaningful connections as well. It was so empowering to  see and meet so many content creators that looked like me. We were all there grinding together and looking out for one another. I was going to initially only go as an attendant, until I noticed the invite for media.…

Will You Watch? Whitney Houston Documentary Approved by Houston’s Estate

The only Whitney Houston Documentary approved by Houston’s estate is set to be released officially  in theaters on July 6th. I will be front and center. This is the documentary that Whitney deserved.  I’m reminded of how beautiful she was, but also of how ugly addiction is. I wrote about loving someone through their addiction. It’s tough not to pass judgement, but I came to the conclusion that people process pain in different ways and that  some ultimately find  healthier ways to handle their cloudy days in life. The documentary…

Content is Queen: Submit Your Work With Care And Caution

Content is queen. Submit your work with care and caution. I’m learning out here in this world of writing to look at the fine print. Recently, I submitted an entry to Spotify’s call for women of color podcasters. Later on in the week, I read a post on Twitter from a young lady outlining why she did not submit anything. What she shared made me wish that I had not submitted anything as well. Reason being, when you submit something you lose all rights to the work indefinitely without compensation.…

Beyonce’s Historic Coachella Performance Featuring Jay-Z and Destiny’s Child

My initial Reaction-Honey, they don’t call her Queen Bey for nothing. Beyonce’s performance as the first black woman to headline Coachella was unapologetically black, brilliant and a wig snatcher for sure! From opening up with the Negro National Anthem to strongly representing HBCUs, She set the tone. The moment she stepped on the platform and walked that runway as only she can, I knew she didn’t come to play. Beyonce shut it down! We missed her as much as she has missed us! The bonus for the night was when…

There are very few things in life I truly hate and Uterine Fibroids is one of them.  According to the Women’s Health.Gov, Uterine Fibroids are muscular tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus.

African-American women are more likely to develop fibroids than white women. According to the National Uterine Fibroids Foundation, over 600,000 hysterectomies are performed annually in the United States.…
