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…

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.

5 Things to Remember When Going Back to School in Your Late Twenties

I told myself that I would never get a Master’s degree once I graduated from undergrad in 2013. You could not even persuade me to go to grad school. After two years of working at my big girl job, I decided that I wanted to go back for my Master’s in Social Work. That did not work out.
