My life right now is crazy busy. I have not had time to dedicate myself fully to blogging as I should, but it is for good reason. I am in my final class for my Master of Business Administration degree, and I could not be happier. I am also trying to perfect my craft in my makeup artistry, relocate to Atlanta, GA, and promote myself by attending networking events, amongst other things that I shall remain nameless. One thing I neglected to mention in the midst of my mayhem is that I am now an shine insider with Rocksbox! What is Rocksbox? I am glad that you asked! Rocksbox is a membership-based jewelry styling service where members pay a flat monthly rate to get access to a personalized rotating closet of designer jewelry, sent in three sets at a time. As a lover of jewelry, I was instantly intrigued once I received an email from Rocksbox about becoming a shine insider. The process is simple, you sign up for the service, and then choose your style of jewelry, and make your payment. I received my jewelry in the mail within a few days. It was a pleasant surprise once I saw the pieces sent to me and the beautiful packaging, I loved all of them. You have the choice to rent the pieces, and send them back for new ones, or make a one-time purchase of a particular piece or all pieces. Now that I have worn all of mine for the summer season, I am going to send them all back (with the exception of the necklace, which I LOVE) and see what comes next. If you are interested in joining Rocksbox, you can sign up and receive your first month for free by using the code JAYCHANTELLEXOXO. So, use the code and enjoy your jewelry as much as I am enjoying mine! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

I cannot believe that I am thirty-eight years old! I know, you are shocked, but I am a product of a Melanin Queen, aka my mother and I am the Melanin Goddess. We age like fine wine, honey!
First off, let me say this. I am not perfect, and I am not a robot.
Now that we got that out of the way let me be quite frank with you. Ever since I packed my bags and relocated to Atlanta, the journey has not been all roses. Granted, I am grateful for this opportunity, but the process that comes along with relocating is mad real. There were a lot of endeavors that occurred in my personal life last year that I unprepared for, but hey, that’s life, right
Happy October! It's a new month, and we are just under 100 days remaining of 2018. I remember at the beginning of this year, I read through my list of goals I wanted to achieve for 2018 and I can honestly tell you that rebranding was not one of them. However, I did indicate through prayer for an increase in my business and craft.
I know, I have been MIA for some time now, but a lot has happened in my personal life. I had plans on writing some blog posts regarding spending my first birthday as an Atlanta resident, my one year anniversary as a resident of Atlanta and other random posts including some podcast recordings. However, some events happened in my life to where I decided to take a mental break.
There is nothing like a good ole blogger challenge! My blogger boo Courtney from Passionate Woman CS created a fun challenge in her latest post, 25 & Winging It. She created this challenge for bloggers to share some fun facts, confessions and life lessons about us. So when my girl and blogger boo Michaela from A Dash of Michaela, shared her post, 23 & Winging It, she then tagged me to join the challenge as well and I am ready for the task.
I have always been a fan of Drake's music, especially when he released More Life last year. To this day I still play that album from start to finish. Earlier this year, he released God's Plan, and it caught my attention, at least I thought it did until he dropped, Nice for What this past Friday night. Let me tell you, the MOMENT I HEARD THIS SONG, I instantly fell in love.
I want to give you my "grand rounds" of creating content for your blog, brand, website, social media, etc. One thing I can attest to is that when I began my journey of blogging, all I had was my MacBook and my iPhone.
As the 2017 holiday season comes to a close and the new year is approaching, I want to take a moment to thank every one of you for supporting my brand and me. Becoming a blogger has always been a dream of mine, and before the launch of I am SohoGlam, I was afraid to open up and share my vision with the world.
Good day, my beauties! For this post, I want to feature another blog post I read a few weeks back on how to deal with copycats. As a creative, we all have our own identity and originality. However, there are times where we have people in our lives who "swagger jacks" us.
Happy Thanksgiving my beauties! I wanted to write a quick post to wish you all a great Thanksgiving and to let you know what I am thankful for. Of course, the main thing I look forward to is spending time with my family and eating great food. However, I am grateful for my ability to share a piece of my life with you on my blog.
