Happy Birthday to Me! It doesn’t feel like a year has already gone by. Several changes. Lots of surprises. I definitely thought I’d be in a different space today than I was last year. Even though Im not where I thought I’d be, I see sunshine in the midst of the storm. I feel God working every single day and I feel blessed with the things that I have. Having an awesome support system in my family and friends makes things a little easier. Looking forward to more growth and making amazing memories in my next year of life! Cheers to more blessings and another year!
August was full of great surprises. Let’s Recap! I got rehired by both of my clients and got some unexpected exposure to some potential new clients. Every time I think no one is paying me any kind of attention, I’m wrong. I finally got my social media account and website launched with @tnncreativeagency. I've been brainstorming and trying out different systems to run my business efficiently and it is going well. Patience is a virtue and I am praying over my business and organizational skills daily. My nephew Chase Martin was born August 8. Shout out to my fab sister n love @madelyncollins and my brother/ “the boy” (IYKYK) for carrying on the family name with their 50-11 kids. My Nieces treat me like a human jungle gym so IDK what the new baby will do to me… but I low key like it. My sister/cousin surprised us all by adopting my new nephew Major Joshua. He was born August 9 so of course he and Chase will be forever besties! I'm loving being a TT. (I have more photos but my bother Celebrated my friend @candds birthday with a surprise 90s party and I channeled my inner Faith Evans (minus the dark roots) and Mary J Blige! I'm looking forward to September and all the surprises it will bring. Today is the Queen Bey's birthday, so you already know I'm ready for the tour to finally get to Texas! What is one thing you're looking forward to this month?
Weekend Recap Saturday was a Blur! + My niece had a 9am soccer game. Trying to be a good TT, I made sure to be there. (No I was not the culprit behind the hot pink shoes. That was all her! PS. Is that not the cutest little slogan the fields have?!) + I had a friend brunch date with my boo @serioussunshine at Bonton Farms in South Dallas. It's the epitome of farm to table. They have a microfarm on site with all the fresh veggies on site, along with goats and chickens. I had the crawfish salad for my entree and it was probably the best salad I have ever had. It was sooo fresh! + That evening, I met up with my sorority sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha to surprise our sister and friend Raven for her milestone birthday at Pappasito's. After that I was wiped so yeah.... Sunday I napped... and watched basketball. No Photo needed to document the level of casualness after church. How was your weekend? Were you out on a patio or did you chill for the weekend?
Most people don’t realize, when you’re adulting all day and making decision after decision, you’re exhausted. Even if you work from home, you still need to wind down at the end of the work day. Personally, I like to wine down after a long day with a glass of Chardonnay. Right now, I am enjoying the Talley Vineyards Estate Wine. If you like the aromas of Asian pears, and the taste of golden apples and caramel, you’ll like this one. No surprise here.. You know I have to pair it with a good meat and cheese board. Want to try out the wine I’m drinking? Use Noella15 at TalleyVineyards.com to get a discount. How do you wine down after work? What’s your wine of choice after a long day of work?
How do I keep my blonde hair so healthy? It's a commitment. Lots of deep conditioning to prevent breakage and I get my roots done every month just so the color always looks fluid... and so I don't end up looking like Faith Evans. Because I know all this blonde sucks up all the moisture out of my hair, I do exactly what my stylist @deannagroomgrant says and that includes using the exact products that she uses on my hair. Anything she uses on me in the salon, I'm buying it so I can use it at home. That's how I ended up using @olaplex products. I faithfully use the Shampoo, Conditioner, Bonding Smoother, and my favorite, the Bonding Oil. I tend to mix the bonding smoother and the bonding oil together for my fave hair cocktail and my hair is extra hydrated afterwards. I know. what you're thinking. The bottles are small, but I promise a little goes a long way. Have you tried Olaplex products before? What kind of products are using to keep your hair hydrated and healthy?
Just because you're light skin, doesn't mean you don't need lotion. That's what one of my friends told me one day when the body butter I thought was doing its ash away job, clearly quit working midday. Apparently, the only job it did was make me smell good because keeping my legs moisturized was not happening. Finally one of my fave creative influencers @hayet.rida shared the products she used and I joined the #moisturegang I started mixing Aveeno Eczema Therapy with Johnson and Johnson baby oil gel and boom. Ash be gone! Now, I stay hydrated post shower and all throughout the day! Have you tried these two products out yet? What are you using to keep your skin moisturized and the ash away?

Have you ever been to an event with content creators? If the answer is no here’s a tip: come dressed extra cute because there’s always a photographer to capture all the photo ops. And yes… the rumors are true.. No one eats or drinks anything until everyone gets their shot for their content (just kidding… but not really ha!) I attended the Blogger Brunch Meet Up at Olivellas Pizza in Lakewood. I hadn’t been to a meet up in a while, so I got to meet several content creators from Dallas that I hadn’t met before and discuss all things content creation. So what’s @thebloggerbrunch ?

It’s my bloggerversary! 1 year year blogging and ohhhh a lot has happened in a year: + I am not living my best extra basic unemployed life on Texas Unemployment. I have a job this year (this time last year I was laid off- look at God!) + I still like Covid dates with Fuel City tacos, but this time I don’t have to eat them outside on the hood of my date’s car for safety reasons. + I’ve studied at YouTube University and taken alot of experienced influencers advice so, I’m reaching out to brands trying to get paid for this blogging and influencing life. No deals secured yet but I feel like it’s close! I will share when it happens. + All these men keep giving me ammo for #DatingChronicles; all of my stories are real, so no, to answer your question, I still do not have a boyfriend. + Blogging and Influencing is hard. I wish it was just taking a cute picture and dropping in a caption with my fave Beyonce or Drake Lyric. All in all, I’m still enjoying this journey! Thank you to everyone that slides in my DMs and is is extra encouraging and kind! Those always come in right on time! Please share me with what content you would like me to do more of or share with me something new you ‘d like for me to try out content wise abs I’ll do my best to make it happen!
How’d I get into wine? My bestie…in college. She kept box wine in her fridge. Her theory was, you get 5 liters for $10 (yes… way back when!) That’s a steal! Let drink to that! Yeah no… was not a fan. I stuck to my Zimas. Tried Moscato… didn’t like it. Tasted like sugar water. Finally, years later I dated a guy (surprise surprise) that was a wine and spirits rep. I told him I wasn’t into wine and never really gave it chance and guess what he did? He did a wine tasting for me at his house. Then my obsession started with red wine. Recently, for some reason I’ve been wanting my wine to taste like fresh plums so this one was right on point. Terrell Owens 81 Cabernet Sauvignon gave me all of that flavor. I really wanted to drink the entire bottle by myself, but… didn’t want to feel like a lush so I made sure to share with another Cabernet lover. Needless to say, the bottle didn’t last long. Now I need to order another one. Are you going to try this one out? What’ s your favorite kind of wine?
Don’t think I don’t get extra ashy and my skin doesn’t get dry this time of year. I was excited when #RitualsGiftedMe the Ritual of Sakura Body Care Set with the body scrub, shower gel, and body cream. The Sugar Body Scrub really exfoliated my skin and made it super soft. Bye dead skin cells! I could tell how much the body scrub really worked when I used the foaming shower gel right after and my skin felt smooth. I got a 2 for one deal with soft and clean skin! Guess what I used next? The body cream. Bye Ashy! My favorite product of the entire set. It’s way heavier than I expected and left my skin feeling hydrated all day. Do you have dry and ashy problems like me? What do you do to stay exfoliated and hydrated?
