This past week I flew from Dallas to LA, a trip I’ve taken more times than I can count. But this time was so different – for obvious reasons – because of COVID-19. I’m not one to get nervous before getting on a plane, but I’ll be honest, I was flat out scared to take […]
I love makeup. I’m not great at doing all the fancy tricks, but I care about how the products I use perform like my life depends on it. For reference, I used to be addicted to MAC Cosmetics. Everything in my makeup bag was MAC from freshman year of high school up until the end […]
I don’t know how to begin writing this. I don’t want to put words in the mouth of my black friends. I don’t want to pretend that the outrage I feel is even close to the outrage that my friends of color feel. But I’m angry. And my heart hurts. And the world just feels […]
We’ve been in quarantine for 60 days. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sick of hanging out with myself. 60 days alone is a lot to handle and there’s only so much Netflix you can binge before your eyes get blurry and your couch has a permanent dent in it – let’s be […]
Houston, the land of Beyonce, Travis Scott and now Russell Westbrook (RIP) Also – currently the home of my best friend, which is the reason I’m making my way down to H-Town more often! Even though weekends are never enough time to do all the things, we make the most of our time together by […]
This past weekend I had my friends and followers on Instagram ask me questions. I figured I would take the time to answer them here, since many of them were very similar. I know I often post about my favorite places or things, but I rarely speak on my every day life. Plus this will serve as a great life update for those that are close to me – since I’m the absolute worst at Facebook statuses and (apparently) phone calls.
If you’ve known me for more than 24 hours, you know I drink too much coffee. I spend most of my free time bopping around Dallas, trying all the new shops around town because honestly it seems like there’s a new one opening every week. Of course coffee shops should all be aesthetically pleasing, but I have found that just because they are cute, doesn’t mean the coffee is good… and just because they coffee is good doesn’t mean it’s worth sitting in traffic over . So I have decided to comprise a list of my 5 favorite coffee shops in Dallas to help you navigate where to get your caffiene fix.
For some reason as this birthday approached, I became a little more sentimental than usual.. more reflective. I thought about writing a letter to my younger self (yes, I know… cheesy) but I realized that some of the most important life lessons I’ve learned haven’t come from life-altering situations, but instead, small moments. So instead of writing a long sappy letter to myself – I figured why not make a list of all the things, big and small, that have made an impact on my every day life so far.
Life has been a little tricky lately. I mean, on paper it seems pretty good. I’m working for some really awesome people, I’m really plugged into my church, and I’ve got an amazing group of friends surrounding me, supporting me, and dreaming with me. And yet, for some reason, I feel so unsettled. It’s been like […]
If you know me at all or have followed me on social media for more than 3 days, you know that I drink A LOT of coffee. And while I’m constantly being told that my caffeine intake is unhealthy, the only side effect I have noticed so far is my teeth- they aren’t white. (3 lattes a day can do that to you.)
