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…

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…

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…

Everyone gets into relationships hoping it will be their happy ever after. That is the reality for some people but for others it is just a fairytale.

Creating Intimacy without being intimate

As I travel through my twenties, I have realized having sex is important but it isn’t the only thing alone that drives a relationship. Let’s be real, I know some of us have had situations where sex was the first thing to happen, then we tried to make things work and they just couldn’t. Maybe it was because intimacy wasn’t the foundation of the situation. Sex and intimacy are two different things and without both it can be difficult to maintain the other. You can have sex with anyone but…

Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Review

Interesting enough, I first bought this oil when I had hair extensions. I didn’t buy it with intentions on using it for my natural hair. I have had extensions in the past where is the hair would get really dry and didn’t last as long as I would have liked. So, when I bought these new extensions I wanted to make sure the same thing didn’t repeat itself because let me tell you, I paid too much money for that to happen! I was asking around and a friend recommended…

How to make yourself a priority this year

“Protect your energy!!” Is what I’ll be yelling loud and proud this year. After reflecting on things I shouldn’t have done and the people I should’ve let go sooner than I did, I have to make this a priority. I’m definitely going into this year being conscientious of how I spend my time. I had to be transparent with myself and knew I had to stop making excuses for why I’m not putting myself first. Making time for yourself should always be a priority over everything else. You can’t give…

Beauty Lessons You Should Learn In Your Twenties

Beauty has always been a topic I was interested in. It has been a growing topic over the years and so many beauty trends have come and gone. When I think back to when I was in high school, wearing mink lashes and having perfect eyebrows were not a thing. I didn’t know what a skincare regimen was but now if you don’t have one it’s like you’re doomed for failure. Ha! That’s crazy, right? I have had the opportunity to learn so many things by my desire to want…
