We are coming up on our two year anniversary of homeownership and I’ve still been adding accent pieces and playing with concepts for decorating spaces in our home. I’m normally very particular about what I want to add and always am very slow when making decisions about purchases. I like to make sure that whatever I buy, is exactly what I like and if it will flow well with what we already have.
My natural hair truly thrives when it is put away and left alone. I’ve learned that over time too much manipulation to my curls causes breakage and ultimately leaves me with the feeling of being unhappy with the dry and unhealthy look of my hair.
A lot of you guys saw my post of last Sunday night’s dinner on IG stories and wanted to know my ramen receipe! I love ramen and find it to be just one of those meals that is perfect to have on a cold and rainy day! You can add different toppings and different kinds of meat such as shrimp or beef—no matter which ever variation— it’s just always SO GOOD. This receipe is simple but will definitely have you feeling like your dining in a restaurant.
I have to admit, shopping just hasn’t been a priority for me these days. Now don’t get me wrong, I will add to my closet when necessary ( i.e. travel or special events), but lately I’ve been relying heavily on what I already own in my wardrobe. I currently have a few financial goals that I am trying to work towards. With that, I find myself being a little more strategic about what kind of clothes I spend my money on.
I’ve been doing a lot more reading lately and have been focusing on really diversifying my book collection. My interests normally range from spiritual, to motivational, finance, career, health, and a few others. However, after doing some early spring cleaning recently, I realized how much I desire to expand my stacks to books by women of color. Celebrating the talent and legacy of black women writers is something to be done this month and throughout the year. Feeling inspired, I chose to pick up a few new reads that I would love to share with you!
It’s the top of the year and work has been keeping me pretty busy all month. So busy that at the end of each day, I focus more on decompressing when I get home. That includes preparing and eating healthy dinners, organizing for the next day and reading before bed. I’ve had a few holidays throughout this month to keep me balanced, however, making the extra time after work to maintain a clear headspace has been imperative to not bringing home any work related stress.
