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!
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.
Last weekend, I attended a thrift tour, hosted by Meyhgin from Meeting With Megs. When I saw that she was hosting a thrift tour, I instantly knew that I was going to be in attendance. Why? Because she is super sweet, freaking amazing and her style is bomb.com! I knew with her guidance; I was going to execute my first thrift store shopping experience.
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.
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.
Painted Pink, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit dedicated to educating every millennial on breast health. This past Sunday, they hosted a private beauty event at the NARS Boutique, located in the Shops Buckhead Atlanta, showcasing education on skin care and awareness to breast cancer while discussing the importance of the ingredients in makeup.
At last! We are in the fall season. Now don't get me wrong, I love the summer, but I also love the fall just as much. The dark hues, the layers, the scarves, leather jackets, boots, sweaters are my favorites. There's nothing like wearing darker, bolder colors and to add a kick of highlight just ties everything together. For this look, I was preparing to see Mary J. Blige in concert.
I cannot believe how fast the summer is blowing right in front of our eyes. In the midst of enjoying my summer, I began a new journey in my career. Again, I have to learn how to balance working full-time, practicing makeup part-time, and managing my blog. I have not been the most consistent with content on my blog, and I am going to continue working on creating a schedule and setting goals.
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.
