What new styling techniques have you been trying lately?
I have a confession…Faith has been on my “to do list” all year. I made excuses, started building it, got distracted, started again, stopped again… Shall I continue? I guess it’s safe to say it’s a process like everything else in life. However, over the past few weeks it’s been developing more and more. Today I was reading my bible app and I came across a section in a “plan” I’m reading called, ” God’s Dream For Your Life”. Here’s a snippet of the plan:
For a long time I kept my “faith” separate from my “brand” because honestly I’m still figuring it out and I wanted to avoid conversations about things I don’t fully understand yet. However, after my little rant yesterday I felt like I had to share this with you guys. It’s exactly what I needed to see as a reminder to keep calm and carry on.
Sometimes God Delays Your Dream by Design
What’s your thoughts on this?
Today is one of those days that I woke with a billion thoughts on my mind and most of it consists of ways to accomplish all these goals that I sometimes feel are haunting me. Being 24 year old creative thinker is a gift and a curse at times. I fell back into a trap and world wind cycle of constant comparison to my peers, checking stats and comments and just overall draining myself of my unique light. I’ll be honest this is something I’ve dealt with for years… From the beginning of my social media experience I’ve been having moments of “binge scrolling” & getting lost in the rabbit hole of comparison. It’s something so comforting about seeing people your age on the same level of success and similar struggles.
The second I got a glimpse of someone who seemingly has it all put together I found myself rolling my eyes, sucking my teeth and being annoyed by their success. I’d find myself thinking, “I could do that better, I’ve already did that….etc.” I know that the envious emotions I’m feeling are just insecurity and anxiety. Constantly wondering when will my time come. I haven’t felt this way in a while, but today I feel like that 15 year old girl obsessing over some random girl on MySpace because we’re the same age with similar hair and bodies… But somehow her life seems more “amazing” than mine.
Although it was hard for me to press publish on this post, I did it anyway because I want you all to know that we all have off days, insecure moments and times where we just don’t like the way we’re acting or thinking. Negative self talk is real and it really impacts your life. Although for a few hours I really got caught up in my mind and lost track of me. Now that I’ve experienced it, thought about and decided what needs to change I’m letting it go. We all have insecure moments no matter how “confident” our ego tells us we are. The key to getting through this is prayer and patience. I’m growing and this is just a part of the process.
Do you ever struggle with comparison?
Casual, simple and cute would describe Sunday’s brunch outfit with the #LBS Team.
We headed to the a laid back spot in Montclair, NJ called TOAST. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect for a humid sunday afternoon.

Once again, I’ve completely neglected my blog… I apologize guys, but honestly for months now I’ve been contemplating if I want to continue blogging here. If you’ve been with me since the blogspot days that probably sounds nuts to you. I was in denial for such a long time honestly. I kept forcing myself to write posts that didn’t inspire me. However, at this point I’ve just decided it’s time to be real with myself. Things change, goals change and I have every right to grow. I was almost disappointed in myself for feeling uninspired to blog. This platform used to be my little baby and now it has grown into something so bigger than I expected. Nowadays I find myself more inspired to record a video for my YT channel than I am to write on here and honestly… that’s okay. It took me a while, but I’m comfortable with saying that. This year has only just begun, but it’s been filled with so much growth and challenges. I’ve learn a lot about myself very quickly. I’ve made a conscious choice that this year I will face those fears that have been stopping me from really being me… the true me. If that means walking away from things or people that I thought made me who I am then I will. This year is about growth for me…I can feel a shift happening. For so long I’ve just felt stuck and stagniant, but my energy and goals feel revived. I’m ranting… but honestly this needs to be said. I’ve finally accepted that in order to really grow…I will have to let go of these “ideas” that I have of myself. That may include letting go of this blog… I guess only time will tell.
Meanwhile, I finally cut off my hair! I’ll have the video and official pics up this weekend. Make sure you follow me on IG to see more if you can’t wait until then lol.
Perfect way to restart this journey to…me!

YouTube launched a campaign called #DearMe earlier this week. The purpose of this campaign is to help empowered and inspire women and girls of all ages. The campaign consisted of youtubers creating a video dedicated to their younger self. My dear friend Abena, made this moving video on her channel earlier this week and she tagged me.
#DearMe: A Special Note To My Younger Self
Embrace Your Body: You Are Unique & Beautiful. Cherish your small boobs, big nose,dark skin, thick eyebrows and “nappy hair”.
It’s Okay To Be Quiet: There is nothing wrong with being an introvert. You don’t have to change to make others feel comfortable.
It Always Works Out: All your dreams and goals are possible. Keeping going, word hard and stop comparing yourself to your peers! Strive to be a better you, not a better version of “them”.
I tag all of you! What would you tell your younger self?
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve noticed that the texture and overall appearance of my skin has changed…for the worse. I have stubborn breakouts along my jawline and cheeks. Normally, my skin is pretty clear, so this was a red flag for me. I’ve decided that firstly I will eliminate products that are packed with parabens and other chemicals.

Sometimes you have to just let go and experience emotions in order to get through them.
