Long time, no talk.

So yeah... I feel like I've kinda abandoned my little space here on the world wide web and I need to get back to it. As I mentioned in my New Years Day post, I have a full-time job so I come home and choose to be lazy like an old lady until it's time to wake up and do it all over again. There's really no excuse for that considering being in school for four years and running non-stop the last two and a half years of that time being a full-time student and being involved extra curricular activities. Balance, everyone. It's called balance and I need to find it before I'm in big trouble.

I want to do more with this space and once again I'm not sure of the direction I want it to go in. At this point, I just feel like I should do whatever moves me instead of forcing myself into a box of one type of content.

I'm really excited to be a part of this awesome project called From A Wild Flower  founded by my love, Kimberly of KimberlyLuxe.com and I encourage you all to check it out. There's the good, bad and the ugly. I must admit that sharing some of my most inner thoughts in such a public forum is new and kind of scary for me, but maybe it will resonate with someone and I think that's the end goal. It takes guts to share personal experiences on such a large scale and I admire my fellow wildflowers for being so brave and honest. The site has gotten amazing feedback over the past week since the launch and I just want to promote it to the fullest because it's not every day that you get 40+ different perspectives from women of color in one space. Check it out on Twitter, FB & Instagram too. Just type in, "from a wildflower" for all those sites and you should find us!

Well, that's all I have for now. Now I'm off to read magazines, which is something else I never do anymore.

One last thing: You can look forward to seeing me more around here. I promise!


Just a 20-somethin' trying to find my way and be great.
