Competitor In The Mirror

Congratulations! You made it to the start of 2018! January is a great time of year for personal reflection and to bury all of the negative things that happened in 2017. It’s a new start for everyone! It’s also a great time to make a commitment to you. Get back in the gym. Focus on that promotion at work that you deserve. Work on communicating more with your…

‘Tis the season for…treatment!

December 14, 2017

  In the cold winter months, it’s just as important to treat your tresses with some tlc. Going from bitter temperatures to artificial heat can take a toll on your locks (not to mention the static from removing your favorite beanie). It’s super important to take control and give your hair some serious care to avoid dryness and damage. Whether it’s a deep conditioning masque or an in-salon…

A Better Way to Curl

November 21, 2017

Let me set this visual in your mind. You wake up in the morning and it is time to get ready for work. You jump in and out of the shower and then begin brushing, blowing drying, straightening and curling your hair. It’s a long process but you know it will be worth it in the end. You look in the mirror after everything is completed and think…

Lashes for Days

November 15, 2017

Let’s face it, we always want what we don’t have and for me that’s long luscious eyelashes. For years I have always purchased a variety of glue on strip eyelashes to accentuate my eyes. Don’t get me wrong, they looked amazing but the process of putting them on was a struggle. I am not an expert and if people only knew how long it took me each time…

Stay Organized

August 27, 2016

Like most people in the world, we seem to never have enough time in our day to complete everything we want. We all have a laundry list of “to-dos” that seems to get longer and longer. Not sure about you but I’ve tried so many tactics and read multiple books to compile as much knowledge as possible to learn new, more efficient ways to manage my to-do list.…

Best Kept Secret Dinner Picnic Party

August 21, 2016

There is something intriguing to me regarding the hottest “chic-picnic” experience known as Dîner en Blanc. The mysterious location, well dressed all-in-white fashion, breathtaking moments/views, accompanied by 5,000 + people. Count me in! Since moving to Philadelphia and learning about Dîner en Blanc, I couldn’t wait to attend. However, each year when the award-winning event would roll around I, of course, was out of town…disappointing!!! This uber-trendy picnic…

Why I added Yoga to my Workout Routine

August 16, 2016

As far as I can remember I have always loved playing sports, working out, and maintaining an overall healthily lifestyle. I was a collegiate volleyball player and always maintained what I call a “bulky fitness regimen.” After college…well life happened. I wasn’t able to hit the gym every day as I once was in college. Bummer! With that being said, after graduation and not working out 24/7/365, my…

Business News: Time Management

October 26, 2015

Are you a morning person or a night owl? Is it true that waking up early makes you more successful? There are a ton of articles that say people who wake up early are more successful than those who don’t. I see the positives and negatives to this argument; however, everyone has the same amount of time in a day, and as long as you manage your time,…
