Portuguese Black Beans and Rice

Going raw vegan has been a goal of mine for the past three months.  I went pescatarian for a full-month and out of nowhere, I randomly began craving Chic-fil-a and so, I went to Chic-fil-a and got a Chicken Sandwich meal along with an 8-count nugget!  So, I know if I tried to do vegan, I’d definitely randomly crave a steak and I don’t even eat steak. Because it is hard for me to go vegan, I decided to go vegan for a week and if I can make it a week, I’d continue going.  I ordered a Vegan Recipe…

Taking Time Away From Your Desk Throughout the Work Day

Throughout the work day, you can become overly stress, your back or neck begins to hurt or your co-workers are irking your nerves.  Here are a few things you can do to take time away from your desk! Go on a short walk. Take a walk around the building if it’s cold outside, but if it’s nice enough, take around the building a couple of times.  At my company, we have several different buildings in the area, so I’ll take a walk to different buildings and walk around them to get a different view/sight. Take Your Lunch Break in the Park/Designated…

I’m Okay with Not Getting Married

Back in February, I went home for my parents 50th birthday celebration.  While we were at the venue setting up, my father and I were talking about his eating habits and health.  He went on a rant about how he’s trying to overall live a healthier life as he wants to see his grandkids grow up and see me get married. It didn’t dawn on me until a couple of days later that my father is looking forward to seeing me get married, however I have come to the realization that I may not want to get married and I…

Lip Color of the Week

This week’s lip color is NYX Liquid Suede Disruptive.  I was SO nervous to try this lip color because it was different and I didn’t think it would look right on me, however once I put it on, I absolutely loved this color on me! It looked amazing and can’t wait to wear it often!

Lip Color of the Week

This week’s lippie of the week is by none other than NYX Wicked Lippie Trickery Supercherie.  I love this color because it’s a metallic greenish color and I honestly felt so fierce using this lip color.

10 Ways to Stay Inspired

The other night, I was working on a project.  Around 9 or so, I got tired and decided to shut my computer down and go to bed for the night.  At night time, I put my phone loud just in case an emergency was happening and I need to be able to hear my phone.  Well ding my phone went as soon as I cut the light off and laid my head on the pillow.  It was my brother and I knew it was him because he has a distinctive text tone. I thought what is he doing up this…

Can My 2018 Look Like Issa Rae’s 2017?

Can we talk about Issa Rae and how it’s been an incredible year for her? A lot of people are saying they want their 2018 to be like Cardi B’s 2017 and by no means am I knocking Cardi B and her newfound success in 2017, but I however want my 2018 to look like Issa Rae’s 2017.  Issa Rae went from a YouTube web series, “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” ( Season 1 of The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl and Season 2) to a premium cable series with her HBO show, “Insecure.”  Ever since then, her career, her…

Unpaid Internships

Is having an internship apart of your required courses or do you just want one because you want the experience? I was a fashion merchandising major and an internship was required of my program.  I remember searching high and searching low for an internship.  Nordstrom is a prominent company who has internships for fashion merchandising students year-round.  I have applied to a couple of their internships at different locations and have had multiple interviews and sadly have never gotten one with them.  I took my internship course the my last semester in college (Summer of 2015).  I actually didn’t land…
