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.

Haitian Ladies Brunch |Weekend Recap Vlog

Hello Loves,

This past weekend was quite an eventful one.  On Saturday, I celebrated my mom’s birthday with her by taking her on the Odyssey in DC for a brunch cruise.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any footage from this outing, because I wasn’t planning on vlogging this weekend, however, I can say it was a wonderful experience.  On Sunday, I had the honor of attending the annual Haitian Ladies Brunch at the Embassy of Haiti in Washington DC for the very first time.  

My Favorite Brunch Spot in DC| Weekend Recap

Hello Loves,

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know brunch is my favorite meal of the day 🙂  I wish I could have a full out brunch experience everyday but unfortunately this is not the case.  Most brunch experiences are held on Saturdays and Sundays. But I was extremely happy this past weekend to go to brunch with my girl, Stephanie in honor of her birthday which was a little while ago but who needs a reason to go to brunch lol?

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?

This past weekend, I celebrated my birthday with a series of events.  I like this idea because everyone’s schedules are different but this gives them a chance to choose an event that works best for them.  This method allows you to see your friends and family at least once or several times during your birthday festivities.

Here is a recap of my birthday celebration.

My Favorite Inspirational Quote At the Moment

Hello Loves,

Lately, I have been experiencing some things in my personal life which are causing me to believe more and more in the power of manifestation.  When the time is right I will open up regarding what my spirit has been calling upon to become reality, but for now I have set my goals, I am focusing on smashing them in silence, and I will allow the results to speak for themselves.  However, the momentum for what is manifesting in my life at this time has been in making this quote my mantra:

6 Reasons You Should Take A Vacation

Hello Loves,

If you have been reading my blog for a while you know I have been on 3 vacations in the past 6 weeks.  I can’t help it I love taking my vacations 🙂 Naturally, people tend to ask me how do I travel so much? Personally, I don’t think I travel that much. However, I do feel that vacations are essential to living a well rounded life so I save and plan accordingly.  My motto is I work hard so I can play even harder.

Unfortunately, too many people do not take their vacations or paid time off. According to a CNBC article more than half of Americans do not plan on taking a vacation this summer.  To me that is just crazy.  I wish people knew how beneficial taking a vacation could be.

Road Trip to Wrightsville Beach

Hello Loves,

This past weekend I had the chance to go on a road trip to Wrightsville Beach, NC.  This trip was pretty low key, relaxing, and just what I needed to end my summer with.

Babe and I truly enjoyed Wrightsville Beach.  Every person in customer service we encountered was friendly and truly exhibited the essence of what southern hospitality is.
