International Women’s Day 2018

It’s International Women’s Day, and as a woman myself, of course I’m excited to celebrate all of the beautiful, resilient women around the world. I think it is great that there is a day dedicated to a species that constantly has to fight to prove their strength — despite being the bearers of life. Im…

Dance Like Nobody is Watching

If you know me, or have ever seen me out and about when there is music playing, you know that 11 times out of 10, I’m going to try singing along or dancing. Sometimes all it takes is the music in my head. Believe it or not “Are you a dancer?” is a question I…

All-Star Special || Part 4

After leaving the Beats party early, we somehow still didn’t make it in until around 4:30am. And by 7am, we got the notification that our call time was at 9am that morning. So after the third night of 2 hours of sleep, we hopped back up to do it all over again. This day was…

All-Star Special || Part 3

Friday kinda went straight into Saturday after we stopped by a certain NBA players house to show face and say hi. That was actually a really hilarious highlight of the weekend. We’d left Jordan’s birthday with a couple “souvenirs” and we had no place to put them when we Ubered to this certain NBA stars…

All-Star Special || Part 2

As I mentioned in my last post, Friday at All-Star Weekend was a hectic one. For some reason I had trouble sleeping Thursday night, and by the time I finally drifted, I got a call telling me of my 11am call-time for the Ciroc event I had been casted for. I got up quickly and…

All-Star Special // Part 1

As we all know, NBA All-Star Weekend was hosted in Los Angeles this year. I’d been in touch with a few people that would be in town that weekend, and was hoping to connect, though my main goal in attending NBA All-Star Weekend was to earn some potential income through modeling. Gratefully, a former colleague tagged me in an Instagram post regarding a casting call. I rushed home after work Tuesday afternoon, anticipating the hour and fifteen minute drive from Riverside to Los Angeles…which could have easily turned into a 2 and a half hour drive if I had waited…

Reckless Love – Pt. 1

Ok, sooooo. A little background on this piece. I wrote this about 5 years ago while I was going through a forgiveness process, in which I realized there were some things I needed to forgive myself for. None of the events in this poem actually happened to me, but somewhere along the lines when I…

Morning Madness.

I couldn’t help but to cry from laughing at all the anger in my face in the morning. Do you hear that alarm though? So unpleasant. Rude, actually. Can’t it tell I’m tryna get some sleep, here? Lol. Anyways… this is my typical attitude every morning. I’m not sure what I think about when I…

Tasty Tilapia

In my goal to consume at least three meals a day, I made dinner yesterday. I also went live on Instagram for the first real time (I’ve tried it before and logged off before it really began). Instagram live is something I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to. But I did maintain like 4…

Health is Wealth.

One thing that yoga practice has been teaching me is to have patience when it comes to this whole “self-love” process. And not simply the waiting type of patience, but the type of patience where you actually take time to give yourself time. With that being said, I started noticing how much time I utilized…
