ENTREPRENEURSHIP | How I Developed My Business Idea

I’ve been keeping a secret. You see, I’m trying something new, you guys. Something I’ve never done before. Something I have absolutely no experience doing. Something I pray becomes a successful business. It all started 2 1/2 years ago, when I moved to New…

Happy Monday, and I hope you had a great weekend! Since I cut my hair, I’ve been using perm rods to style it. On Friday night I was feeling super lazy and just couldn’t bring myself to wash and set my hair though, so…

WEEKLY WORD | Praying for Yourself

I pray several times a day. You know, the quick “Lord, tell me what to say in this meeting” or “Please don’t make me miss this train” prayers. When I sit down to really pray, I start with thanking God for my blessings, and…

I love clothes, and when I go shopping, I have a tendency to buy things that are bright and bold and may or may not work with anything else in my closet. I just buy what I like, but not always what I need,…

BEAUTY | Taking Care of 30-Year-Old Skin

I just bombarded you with photos of my bare, 30-year-old face (sans everything, including a decent eyebrow) because it’s confession time, and who makes a confession in a face full of makeup? Turning 30 was pretty awesome. But for the the past few weeks,…

WEEKLY WORD | Practice Fearlessness

For God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and clarity of mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 I “fasted” from fear for Lent this year. Basically that meant that I paid careful attention to what my fears were and…
