Memory Planning | Ticket Stubs

Cheers to memory planning, but really cheers to me organizing what I’ve accumulated over the years. I had to take a step back from my memoryย  planner because I had way more than I thought. Talk about overwhelming! I’ll admit, I’m that person that takes everything out, tries to organize, gets frustrated, and quits. It takes time to organize or sort anything and I went from thinking I hadn’t saved enough to maybe I saved too much. A quick and easy page that I recently did was creating a spread for the movie tickets I’ve accumulated.

Kohl’s Clearance Finds

I’m a sucker for clearance finds and it’s that time of year when I add a few new additions to my wardrobe. Fall is officially here! Then again, we have a heatwave coming in my area so not so much just yet. Anywho, I was amazing to find some amazing pieces at Kohl’s in the clearance section all for around $50.

Sound Off: President Attacks Athletes

It has been a whirlwind in the media with politics. The threats against other countries, the fight for healthcare, the rallies dividing citizens further a part, and most importantly the montage of tweets from the POTUS. I have a platform where I can share my thoughts. The joy of freedom of speech. I may be a football fan, but first and foremost I am a black woman in the United States of America. I AM BLACK! I have given my take on the Kaepernick situation that seems to be getting bigger and bigger by the day. Could the POTUS have taken things too far with his latest rant of comments?

Chaotic Reads: Coffee Table Books

I do not read nearly as much as I should. It’s as if my books have become dรฉcor collecting dust. While I have a reading list that I’ll slowly but surely get through, I have a knack for collecting coffee table books. Well, what I consider a coffee table book. These are easy to find at your local Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Ross, thrift store, etc. They’re gorgeous, filled with pictures, some have text, but ultimately they make a statement. I have a collection accumulated quite the collection that defines my personality and interests.

Holy Grail Hair Products

I haven’t shared any monthly, quarterly, or favorites in quite some time. Life has been crazy and hectic, but in a good way and I’ve had to make changes. The key change was finding a hairstyle that took little maintenance. My go to hair style for years has been braids. They’re easy, I do them myself, and switch it up when I want. So why not share my holy grail hair products, right? Right.

Sound Off: NFL Boycott?

It feels like forever since I’ve written a blog post,ย  but truly it’s been over a week. I hope everyone had an amazing Summer. Football is officially back and of course I’m all about that black and yellow #SteelerNation. Who will make it to the Super Bowl? Will anyone have an undefeated season? Aside from those basic questions every season, there’s been a lot of conversation surrounding boycotting the NFL. I for one will not be participating in that.

Chaotic Visions | Enduring Ink

Welcome to the 7th edition of Chaotic Visions. I am so happy to have made it thus far with this series. I came up with the idea in late 2016 as I wanted to create a series that showcased female empowerment. What better way than sharing the amazing stories of female entrepreneurs. I have shared the brands and road to successes of amazing female entrepreneurs and this time around is no different!

This edition is about the amazing Pachet Spates, creator of Enduring Ink. As someone that has always used a journal, her brand is definitely one I wanted to feature.
