My take on #BlackPanther
Dear Journal, "I'll believe it when I see it" Every single person has heard this saying before and generally are deceived like the rest of the masses into believing it's true. The problem with this statement though, is that it places the person in a reactive as opposed to proactive place; a passive as opposed … Continue reading February 5, 2018
Dear Diary, This blog post is long overdue but I have been so busy and haven't gotten the chance to actually sit down and write about ending my 2017. There has been so many ups and downs; in my last post I told you all about finally dedicating myself to a relationship, and that did … Continue reading January 22, 2018
Dear Diary, I got a call today. It was my father...I didn't answer, & he left a voicemail. Fair. I also haven't listened to the voicemail - and before this interaction I haven't talked to him in who knows how long because I really wasn't counting. Daddy's little girl grows up and still should be … Continue reading January 15, 2018
Dear Diary, So long and farewell to 2017. We did end on a positive note even though it might appear otherwise. As I reminisce on the journey(s) I have taken, there is a smile on my face in hope, knowing that the foundation started at the end of the year is my beginning. Thinking of … Continue reading January 8, 2018
Dear Diary, There has been something that has been weighing on my mind. It's something I have noticed many people in the black community fall victim to and ashamedly I say, it is something I have also been guilty of... Working with primary and junior ages within the school system, I see and hear many … Continue reading December 28, 2017
Dear Diary, It's December. The month to relive, recollect and reflect on the past 52 weeks. A month full of optimism and goal setting. This past year, I’ve lost some people (figuratively and literally), but I’ve also gained some solid relationships; specifically the ladies of Shea Butter Diaries, and the ladies of Melanin On The … Continue reading December 27, 2017
Some consider it a luxury, and others view it as an expensive hobby. I have to say that this is only partially true.
Yes there are some dream destinations that will cost you the price of a used car, but with the right planning (and budgeting), your next vacation may be a little more affordable than you thought.
And that’s why I, with a few other amazing ladies, decided to start this initiative!
I wouldn’t give myself the title of a well-seasoned traveler (even though many others have) but I have had my passport stamped enough times to provide some beneficial tips and tricks.
Also, we do plan and organize leisure and humanitarian trips for anyone who is interested; a great way to make some new friends, and possibly make a difference in a community somewhere around the world!
As a co-founder, my hope for this group is to…

Dear Diary, I can't remember the last time I've updated you, but no time like the present. Let me start by apologizing to my damn self, I haven't let nobody down but myself. I've witnessed companies that were open before I was born CLOSE due to bankruptcy (like damn)! I've watched my mentors make mistakes...people … Continue reading December 4, 2017
Dear Diary, Back in 2013, I traveled to the Dominican Republic. This particular trip has a special place in my heart because while there, I visited an orphanage and also went into a neighborhood to see some local families. I knew beforehand that I was going to interact with some residents of the country, so … Continue reading December 1, 2017
