Allow me to introduce myself

I’ve been away–travelling and experiencing new things, ending up in sticky situations and meeting wonderful people. I wish I had a legitimate excuse as to why I didn’t post while I was away. I could use the excuse of ‘There was no wifi there’- which there wasn’t, – but then there are so many other […]

Too much of a good thing

I’ve been seeing a lot of black women appreciating themselves. It’s very refreshing. “Black girl magic” is something else, really, and how the black female community has stood up for each other is incredible. But I’ve been seeing something else, too.
