How to Get Out of Your Own Way

Hello Loves,

The year 2018 is almost over which means 2019 will be here in no time.  With a new year comes new goals to accomplish.  If you are naturally a planner like I am you are constantly thinking about your next goal anyway. But pause for a second.  What about now?  What about today?  Why do you need to wait until a certain time to start focusing on creating a better you? Too many times we hold on to excuses like I can do this next year, I will do that tomorrow, or this can wait until later. Read More

Dye Your Hair Naturally| My First Henna Treatment on Natural Hair

Hello Loves,

As a naturalista, for years, I’ve always thought about using henna in my hair to dye it.  However because of the long drawn out process that I have seen others go through, I always put it off for a later time.  I even bought henna from an Indian grocery store a few years ago and allowed it to expire.  Even though henna is pretty inexpensive, I feel bad about it because that decision was a waste of money.

How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Hello Loves,

We’ve all heard the saying before that, comparison is the thief of joy.  Yet we do this every single day.  It seems that this is natural human behavior.

Living in today’s world it is so easy to get lost in what the Jones’ have going on over there in their yard.  With just the scroll of a fingertip on a social media platform, you can see the Jones’ going on lavish vacations, driving fancy cars, and living their fancy lifestyle.  Then you feel yourself getting jealous. But have you ever stopped to think about how the Jones’ got what they have?  What makes you think you deserve this same exact lifestyle? What makes you think you don’t deserve better? Are you bettering yourself so you can afford the things you desire? Do you really even want what they have or does it look good because it is what is “in” at the moment? Read More
