Don’t call it a comeback! If you didn’t notice, I took a bit of a break this month. Ya girl was busy this month. I decided to take a break so I can power through my last few weeks of grad school. So I’m back now that I’m done! I’m tired but I’m excited to spend more time on the blog. Here is April in review.

Lifestyle

– I went to Ulta and SPLURGED. I got a lot of amazing products but one of my favorites is the Redken Diamond Oil Glow Dry. If put heat on your hair, this is a must! It makes hair feel soft and the plus side is that it smells so good! This is now my go to hair product.

– I’m obsessed with the Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation. I actually had this in my stash but recently decided to try it out and I can’t believe I haven’t worn it more. It blends out so well and gives a great glow!

A&E

– ARCTIC MONKEYS FINALLY ANNOUNCED A NEW ALBUM. This is the news I’ve been waiting for. I can’t wait to hear it.

– I’m on the hunt for any new music. Doesn’t matter the genre. Drop some suggestions!

Personal

– The biggest thing is that I’m done with grad school! It’s been rough but I can finally say I have no homework for the rest of my life.

– I’m learning to lay low a bit more. I’m trying to enjoy life and the people who I have around.

Around the Web

– Kanye West got his Twitter back and it’s been wild. Follow for some thoughts and wildness. It keeps you entertained.


I’m so excited to create new content on here soon! What’s new with you this month?

February was a good month but I’m glad it’s over because March is my birthday month! I hate saying this but February flew by fast! Seriously, every year seems to go by faster and faster. Here’s February in Review.

Lifestyle

– I’m trying to get back into my skincare game. I wanted a cheap face mask so I got the Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Ultra Cleansing Mud Mask. It’s so affordable and a little goes a long way. It’s made my skin feel so refreshed!

– I’m trying to get makeup that is travel friendly so let me know what’s some of your favorites!

A&E

– Y’all! Black Panther was amazing. I love Marvel and Black Panther was just an amazing addition to the cinematic universe. Also, the soundtrack is just as good.

Personal

– I’m starting my fitness journey! I talked a bit about this on my channel. But I definitely want to get stronger and healthier. It also led to me join a ballet class again!

– I’m starting my last session of grad school and I am so excited! I just need to push through and I won’t have homework ever again.

Another year. Here we go. January is already over! Not going to lie, this month was a little weird for me so I’m glad it’s over. Very expectant for a better 2018. So here is January in review!

Lifestyle

– Y’all I’m in love with Not Your Mother’s hair products. I’m back to leaving my hair naturally and since I’ve been using them, my hair has improved so much! I use the All Eyes on Me 10-in-1 Hair Perfecter and the Naturals Coconut Milk & African Marula Tree Oil High Moisture Smoothing Cream. It smells amazing and my curls are staring to come back to life!

– I’m not going to lie, I’m already looking at spring clothes and loving everything. What do you think will be the biggest trend?

A&E

– I’m SO excited for music this year! There’s so much that is going to be released and I can’t wait! Currently loving “Do Right” by Glades. Such a fun song and a really cool message.

– Yes, I saw The Greatest Showman and I loved it. That soundtrack is SO amazing. I never felt so inspired and emo at all one time.

Personal

– I”M GOING TO EUROPE! As a little treat for myself, I’m going to Paris, London, and Rome with Ultimate Break (not sponsored, fyi) after I graduate grad school. I’m so excited because I’ve never flown internationally so please give me all types of tips and tricks!

– There’s a lot of good changes going on in my life. Some I expected but some were complete curve balls. But I’m getting my life on track so that is always exciting.

Around the Web

– Fun fact: I’m taking a break from Instagram but it’s making me stay away from the internet in general. Stay tuned for something new next month.

One month to go! I can’t believe we’re already at this point in the year. These last few months of the year are always the best but seem to fly by the fastest. Here’s November in review.

Lifestyle

– So my blow dryer died so I had to get a new one. I didn’t want to break the bank so I went for the Conair Infiniti Pro at Ulta and y’all, my hair turned out ridiculously soft. I honestly wasn’t expecting much from it but I was so impressed by the quality of it!

– I’m currently on the hunt for coats! I’ve been loving tons over at Zara and Asos but can’t seem to commit. Where do you prefer to buy coats?

A&E

– I watched Wonder and absolutely loved it! I read the book so I was excited to see it come to life. Movie adaptations always cut out ton of the book, but this did a great job at telling the story. Plus, Daveed Diggs is in it and he’s one of my faves.

– I’ve been reading Faith Forward Future by Chad Veach and it’s so good! I’ll be giving it a whole review soon!

Personal

– Ya girl is slowly getting her life together and I’m pretty stoked with how life is going. God is good. Life is wild. I’ll definitely be sharing way more when I can!

Around the Web

– Last month I talked about Overheard LA but there’s also Overheard NY and to be honest, it’s way funnier. 

– I finally gave in and followed Gordon Ramsey on Twitter to see what he says about people’s food and I was not disappointed. What a guy.
