JayChantelle turns the big 35!!
Happy Birthday to me!!! Today, I turn 35 years old. To many, I don’t look a day over 30. I am thankful for good genetics and taking care of myself. As I sit and reflect on my past year, I have been blessed in so many ways. I accomplished a lot of goals and met and connected with some awesome people. I am excited about how my blog has been taking new heights, and I cannot thank you all for your support. I am also excited about how I am continuously working on my craft and how it has been opening up many doors for me. Coming into 2016, I declared it would by my year of favor. Little did I know, I would have to make a significant change in my lifestyle, and my faith was about to go through the ultimate test. In a time where things could not get any worse, people turned against me, and I was under a ton of stress, resulting in suffering through mild depression. Family and friends who care about me took notice of my demeanor and offered help in all ways possible. Today, I am doing much better as I reintegrated that this is my year of favor and refuse to let the devil take me away from what I worked so hard for. Everything that I am going through is preparing me for that I asked for. Even though I was not expecting things to go the way they are, I am grateful for the experience as I learned a lot.
With that being said, cheers to me! I thank God for allowing me to see another year! I want to thank my awesome family and friends for making my day special. I also want to thank the Cleveland Cavaliers for winning the 2016 NBA Championship and giving the city an experience of a lifetime. Lastly, I want to thank my readers, followers and subscribers from the bottom of my heart for all of your support! I appreciate you!
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.
