    Patterns and Paving the Way for MORE

    Good Evening Beauties and Beaus, I’m curious to know how your goals for this year are coming along? Truth be told, this ‘motivational speaker’ has not been so motivated. 2019 Goals are in fact 2018 goals…. maybe even 2017 goals. I think I’m coming to a realization that you will not always meet your goals. Goals are meant to roll over. How weird is that to say? I wish I can be my perfectionistic self and meet my goals quicker, but I murdered her during graduate school. This was necessary so I can have compassion for myself (lol fo real though!). I’ve been thinking about the term ‘goals’ today, and…

I am here to present to you a creative and fun way to track your habits day to day for an entire month! In cognitive behavioral therapy we call it a habit tracker. What is it?

    New Year. Old Habits. Ways to Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself.

    New Year’s Resolutions can sometimes (if not most) turn into delusions. Dreams that never become manifested. It’s safe not to pursue and live the dream. But I am here to tell you: Don’t fall into that trap! Refocus your lifestyle and make things happen. Don’t let the obstacles of life hold you down. I can tell you this from life experience. Countless amount of times I said, “I’m going to write a play, I’m going to up my youtube game, I’m going to post on a consistent basis…” And then I look back… actually I sneeze and the year is over, realizing I did not do anything I wanted to.…

    Velvety Little Christmas

    Merry belated Christmas! I wanted to share my outfit for the holiday season. My outfit of choice has been the wine color. Soft textures with an indented print with the wine color has gotten me super obsessed with wanting more of this style. Dress: Velvet floral imprint dress, circular flounce sleeves Boot: Velvet over the knee boots Accessory: Kitty bell headband Hairstyle: Two twisted knotted buns with front bangs For me, this was the perfect outfit. About a year ago I bought this dress from a thrift store near the hair salon. At first I didn’t like how it fit me, but I remind myself I am continually accepting my…

    Styles & Sushi

    One thing that got me through graduate school was going out to eat. I found it rewarding to complete a 50 hour work week and celebrate with my favorite food: SUSHI My friend Kent and I tried a new spot a city near Long Beach called Xtreme Sushi. I told Kent that I wanted to dress for the part. He found it funny, but was very impressed with what I came up with in only a few minutes. Check out the food and my style creation.
