In this tutorial, not only am I teaching how to create a fluffy twistout on type 4 natural hair, I’m also teaching how to style an updo with bangs. I found a really cute headband that I wanted to create a tutorial around. The headband is sold out, but I recommend going to Forever 21 and finding their cheap hair accessories to spruce up simple hairstyles.
I’m just gonna say it. “Athleisure”, THANK GOD it’s trending. There are so many cute and comfy options to choose from now. As a new mom, I’m so grateful. Clothes like these are flexible, can get beat up, wash easily, and are simple to put together. The past few months I’ve been LIVING in tank tops and leggings. It’s such a blessing to be able to step outside of the house wearing the same thing, and not feel like a slob. All I needed was to layer some cute necklaces, fix my top knot bun, and head out.
I guess the best place to start is where we left off. I was in a great relationship, posting outfit ideas, and blogging about how to dress my athletic endo-mesomorph body. I had my year completely planned out. Everything I wanted to do with this blog, my Youtube channel, and my acting career.
I was ready. Then something even more exciting happened – I got engaged! My husband and I immediately began planning our elopement.
I recently posted this image on instagram of me having a full out concert in my room with a full face of makeup. Bright eyeshadow has had an interesing history with women of color in this modern age.

I’ve been on both sides, and I have three simple ways to help ease prints and patterns into any wardrobe like a pro.
Cyber Monday is here once again, so it’s time to stock up on styles that look great on your athletic body. Most female muscular body types are broad in the shoulders, and narrow in the hips. This creates a kind of “inverted triangle” shape. The less amount of hip you have, the more important it is to find bottoms that create fullness along the pevlis.
Eating anything under 300 calories during Thanksgiving, that isn’t plain lettuce, seems impossible. Especially at holiday gatherings where taste, not health, seems to win the day. That’s why I’ve put together two healthy snacks under 300 calories that are perfect to bring to parties. They are meatless, affordable, healthy, and easy to make. Between these two dishes, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The Holidays are upon us and credit cards are lit. Yes, LIT. This is the most expensive time of the year, and our bank accounts deplete with every check mark on the “nice list.” Yes, being generous has a cost and retailers love a generous heart. It seems we have two choices, give big and go broke, or scrooge it up and keep our coins.
If you don’t have the heart to do the latter, the question becomes, how can one give without going broke in the process? Here are a few very practical and easy tips and tools to help you keep your heart and your wallet in check.

Fall is the season before nature goes into hibernation to wake up anew. It’s also the season in which the most exciting fashion trends come alive and fashionistas can’t help but splurge on their latest outfit inspirations. I am no exception. I watch tons of runways shows and read too many magazine articles and blogs during fall. My mind begins buzzing with ideas that only indulging in a new pair of shoes or top can bring to life.
