Today is International Women’s Day and as a womanist and activist for women’s rights, I wanted to say how important this day is to acknowledge. Women make up 51% of the world’s population, yet still women are treated unfairly all across the globe. Not too long ago, women were seen as second class citizens and… Read More Happy International Women’s Day!
Hey loves, Today I threw a little extra love on myself because I haven’t been following my usual self-care routines as I’ve been crazy busy.

I… Read More Rant & Rave Thursday (an everything update)
Hey guys! In 2 days I’ll no longer be a teenager. I know it’s horrible. I’ve been dreading getting older since I turned 19 last year but it’s something inevitable & I’ve come to accept it… I guess.
