How to Live Your Life as a Perfectionist

How do you become a perfectionist? Are people just born being a perfectionist or is it taught? These are things I’ve continuously asked myself many times before because I struggle with letting things go as they are. Things have to be a certain way all the time for me and it shouldn’t always have to be that way. People who are over-thinkers, critical of themselves and others, and scared of change are typically perfectionists. There are a few factors that contribute to someone becoming a perfectionist. Their childhood can be…

Signs You Are Not Eating Enough to Lose Weight

It is obvious when we are focused on losing weight that our diet is the biggest contributor. The ultimate goal is to cut our calories and try not to exceed over a certain amount. Unfortunately, it is possible to eat too little, which will not only make it more difficult to achieve a healthy weight, but can also cause other health related issues. Eating below your body’s needs just to fit into smaller clothes or look better is a terrible idea and can lead to consequences. Every individual has a…

How to Let Go of Your Insecurities and Own Them

No one is perfect. Yet, we hold ourselves to this high level of perfection in many facets of our lives: relationships, profession and personal. We tend to get disappointed when we don’t reach or attain the level of perfection that we want. There’s one thing that becomes very clear when this happens–our insecurities set in. We identify them, recognize them and let them get the best of us. Why? Just because we have insecurities, that shouldn’t be the end all, be all. We can’t let them win because they don’t…

12 Books Every Black Girl Needs

As women, we tend to take care of everyone else. We leave ourselves last instead of investing in ourselves. We have to do better about putting us first and one way to do that is by investing in knowledge and motivation. Brushing up on some of the latest reads can help you accomplish this! If you’re anything like me, I make a goal to read a certain amount of books throughout the year. I even buy the books, and they sit on my coffee table for forever. However, there are…

5 Ways to Moisturize Your Hair

Keeping my hair moisturized has been the biggest struggle while being natural. Of course we watch tons of YouTube videos and buy hair products hoping that cream or butter will work this time. Adding moisture to your hair doesn’t mean adding a lot of product to your hair. When you seek moisture through adding tons of product it will only clog your hair cuticles and make it twice as difficult to keep your hair moisturized. It’s important to know what will give you the moisture you need. I definitely had…

Lip mask for dry lips

Bella J. Swirly Girl Lip Spa Set Review

It is no secret that I have been dealing with dry skin for a while. Unfortunately, my lips are not exempt from this. Usually a nice EOS lip balm (also known as the egg lip balm) works really well for my lips but there was this one time that lip balm was not enough. My lips were dry, cracking and wearing lipstick dried them out even more. I’m also convinced that they were turning a dark, purple color in some spots (and no I am not a smoker). I tried…

Quick Morning Breakfast Meals

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” We hear this all the time, right? It’s true but breakfast is also the meal that a lot of people miss the most. I have to eat breakfast or I won’t be good for anybody. Without breakfast I am moody and lower functioning than usual. So, I try my hardest to eat something in the morning. Whether it is an apple, oatmeal or a breakfast bar I make sure I don’t skip it. Eating breakfast was very difficult for me when…
