December Baby

New Month, New Blessings

Happy December everyone!

The last month of the year. My birth month. My mommy’s birth month. Jesus’ birth month.

The Grand Finale month!!

I don’t know about you but I plan to end 2018 strong! I’ve had quite a few ups and downs this year but I’m still here. I’m still standing. I am still blessed.

Instead of dwelling on what went wrong over the past few months, I’m ready to manifest what I want my future to look like. No one likes a complainer! Let’s change the conversation. Personally, I am ready to shed my fears and doubts. I’m always really hard on myself which really doesn’t benefit me or my future. I will start speaking life into my future rather than beat myself up about things that have already happened that I cannot go back and change.

I’m not talking about making the best out of a bad situation either, I’m talking about keeping the faith that God will supply exactly what I want and need. God will not only give us back what we lost but will exceed our expectations. Without a doubt He can take our current situation and produce miracles that we never even imagined! So take the L, understand that it happened, life happens, shit sucks so take a moment to allow yourself to work through it, but keep the faith and pray about what you desire for your future. Manifest the future. Be specific and ask for EXACTLY what you want. Even if it seems ridiculous or impossible that is how manifestation works. Do not get stuck on the past or the present. God shakes things up and make us uncomfortable when he’s ready for us to level up.

The level up is coming!

When you’re going through the storm it’s hard to imagine a brighter day. When everyone is telling you “that’s okay something better is coming” but you still feel like shit, keep going. People trying to make you feel better in the middle of chaos often just makes you feel worse especially when they aren’t really listening to what you’re going through and how you’re feeling. I wish people would stop trying to slap an “I’m praying for you” or “Things will get better” on a situation they aren’t willing to take the time to understand. But that’s another conversation for another day.

I’ve been working through my situation kind of feeling sorry for myself but it’s over for that. I’m not waiting for a hand out and I’m not interested in anyone else’s “help”. It’s time for me to work hard, pray, and manifest the life I want and deserve.

No more playing small. Starting this month and going in 2019 it’s time to walk into my full potential.


I’m no longer interested in shrinking myself to fit in with the people around me. Shrinking myself for jobs. Shrinking myself for a paycheck. Shrinking myself for friends. Shrinking myself for family. Shrinking myself for people who think I’m “acting bourgeoisie” or “stuck up” or “too good”. Shrinking myself for other people isn’t an option. PERIOD!

I’m coming for everything I deserve in my 27th year. In 8 days I will be 27 years old. Twenty freaking seven. Life comes at you fast.

This Sunday I will be on my first cruise to Mexico celebrating my birthday with my love. I will get to ride horses in Mexico. OMG let’s talk about celebrating life the right way! I cannot tell you how many years I’ve tried to plan a cruise with my friends. For one of my birthdays, I tried to plan horseback riding or hot air ballooning with my friends in Napa, that never happened. Sometimes money wasn’t right or timing was off it never worked out the way I planned.  I say all that to say it’s been a long time coming but it’s finally happening yall and this is a big fucking deal!! Plus I get to experience all this with my person. ❤ BAECATION GOING UP!

Let’s end this year off on a good note

Let’s manifest our dream lives

Speak it into existence

Set these goals and make it happen

God Got Us Always

Thanks for reading & I’ll be cruising next week!

I’m giving myself the week off. I’ll talk to you guys again on the 19th ❤

Happy Birthday to me



After graduating with my BA in Communications specializing in Public Relations, I gained experience in fashion merchandising, wardrobe styling, event planning, branding, office administration, and marketing. When I'm not working, I am active in the art and fashion community in the Bay Area and throughout California. Working behind the scenes at events like LA Fashion Week, Sacramento Fashion Week, SFA Student Showcase and accompanying costume designers like Michael Costello has helped build my knowledge and business relationships in the fashion world. I am just a fashionista and creative writer, who loves thrifting. I absolutely love all things Beyonce as well. I grew up a book worm so if I'm not binge watching TV shows or listening to podcasts, most likely I have my nose in a book. I started this blog after college as a first generation graduate learning, growing, and struggling to figure life out. In hopes of aligning others on a similar quest, I blog about my journey through career obstacles, the ends and outs of love, surviving gentrification in the Bay Area, the fashion & art community, mental hygiene in the black community, and pop culture. I also give lifestyle tips on natural wellness, natural hair, being a plant mom, and DIY projects. I write as a form of healing and self care, I pray that sharing my journey will help motivate community healing, therapy and growth for black creatives & entrepreneurs.
