I don't often #Snapchat, but here's some Saturday fun!
#selfie #saturday #goodmorningpost

I finally got a chance to revamp my blog! I'm still blogging about wellness, black womanhood, and mental health, but now the site is more focused on me. I always thought that my name was too long for a self-titled website, but maybe that was just self-doubt.

Say it with me: I have unique skills, talents, and abilities to share with the world.
Have the audacity to claim your gifts! Be bold. Be yourself.

And check out the new website!

Me yesterday outside of #Curlfest. I hooked my new #amethyst onto my "hope" necklace. I believing in wearing your vibes and letting your heart's intentions shine though.

Check out my new crystals! Amethyst and Citrine. I made a list of the stones that represented the changes I want to manifest in my life. My local spirituality shop only had a few of the ones on my list, but I asked the shop lady if I could see whatever she had. As a highly sensitive individual, I immediately began to feel energy overload from touching all of the different stones. Stepping away from the counter, I took a moment to ground myself and find my breath. I wasn't anxious, I just wanted to cleanse my mental and spiritual palate. When I went back to the counter, I narrowed down the stones by intuition and my budget. I fell in love with the Citrine immediately - it's energy felt young, resilient, and fresh. I was drawn to the calming energy of Amethyst, which is a powerful and multifaceted crystal. I'll be writing more on how I use crystals in my spirituality practices. Stay tuned!

I had a great time brunching with my sis and nieces on Sunday. We had Frozen Rose aka Frose! Our server helped us solve our WordConnect puzzles and was generally cool, so we invited him into the picture. Sis and I are looking so cute! Yes, we are #blessed!

Still tingling from the amazing healing energy that we were able to generate as a group last night. Thanks to all of the amazing writers who were willing to be open and honest with their words. And of course, many thanks to my cohost @cinniie for her hard work and powerful insights throughout the night!

Another beautiful image from my shoot with @5amtoday. Black women are both hyper-visable and invisible in this country. Our bodies are both reviled and coveted. We're unforgettable in a world that wants to forget about us, turn away from our pain and dine on our beauty. Protect Black girls. Protect Black women. Value Black girls. Value Black women. @Regrann from @5amtoday - The first in the series of 5AM X IAMJ <-> IAMJ X 5AM productions, Gone Girls chronicles our attempts of understanding what it means to be missing in America. Even while physically present, our light some how continues to be smothered. Existing while suffocating. Thriving while struggling. Crying while smiling. Somehow our strength continues to be hidden from this world. This is an ode to the women and girls missing across America but also a sign of love to all the women in our lives. Throughout this project you will experience one story through the eyes of two artists, both chromatic and achromatic.

Dear Gone Girl,

I'm sorry, I'm sorry this world didn't love you the way it should. If ever you are to read this, just know you are loved. You are powerful beyond measure but that power was hidden from you. Understand that if you ever truly uncover the light that was created within you, you have no choice but to shine.
