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.

How to Spot a Fuck Boy and Leave Him in 2017

My Love is LIT Event Recap

On Friday, February 3, we hosted “My Love is LIT”, which was a painting session at Mimosa and a Masterpiece and a self-love workshop. We were so excited to host this event, especially with Valentine’s Day coming up. It can be difficult for our sisterfriends to remember who they should love first, themselves. We gave them a resource, “30 Ways to Love Yourself Daily” and had them write down words that are reasons why they love themselves. We incorporated those words into our paintings. It was so nice to connect…
