Vanilla Black Tea

For the past 22 months, the holidays have honestly been bittersweet. For those of you that may not know, in September 2016, my husband received an assignment that would result in him being away from us for 22 months. Gotta love that military life, right?

Here we are at the conclusion of month 22 and he’s finally on his way back home to us — for good, just in time for the holidays! We aren’t huge celebrators o...

Ever since I moved out of the city [of Tampa], my options for brunch-style events have been severely limited -- I mean, severely

That is until now --

Stop the press! We finally have a brunch event in Riverview!!!

Gals That Brunch is an initiative that provides an inviting atmosphere for women of all walks of life to get to know each other in the best way -- over brunch! The latest installation of GTB has been brought to Ri...

I am starting to feel like I have more to say about hair than anything else lately. I'm not a hair blogger but I've definitely been dabbling more in the hair area since it's obviously part of my lifestyle. Today's adventure brings me to our little one.

While I frequent the salon every two weeks, little heads are much more sensitive than grown heads. Little ones typically can't handle that degree activity as often, nor do they w...

Interview with Sharece Young, Owner of Hair Youphoria (Tampa, FL)

I remember my first visit to Sharece back in April of this year. My mother has been a client of hers for quite some time and was on me about me making my first appointment. My last relaxer was a little over a month prior to that initial appointment and having been relaxed (chemical straightening a.k.a. permed) for longer than I care to admit. I was used to a cert...

Treating therapy as some sort of “taboo” is so 1990’s. Listen — If there wasn’t a need for it, there wouldn’t be so many therapists, duh. On top of that, employers wouldn’t offer these types of services through EAP (which is free by the way) to get people to use it! Honestly...who isn’t going to therapy these days? I’ll wait.

Over time, things have changed. Some have changed for the better and others for the worst. The fact of...

This is going to be short and bitter — yes, bitter. 

As I sit here in the salon preparing to get my hair done, I’m watching the news and what do I see? Another one of our young Black men has been murdered by law enforcement...AGAIN!

Why is it that our young Black boys and our men can go nowhere without being perceived as a threat??? We have one of these young Black boys and the way we have to prepare him to do just to leave the...

27 And Wingin' It. I discovered this challenge when I came across the Passionate Woman blog. She started a blogger challenge where you share a little about yourself -- fun facts, confessions, and any lessons you learned along the way. In the spirit of TGIF, I decided to join the challenge. Enjoy! 


1. My favorite color is blue.

2. When I was younger, I wanted to be a drag-racer. 

3. I am in extroverted introvert. What do...
