“When women get together, they tell stories. This is how it’s always been. Telling stories is our way of saying who we are, where we have come from, what we know, and where we might be headed.” - Jalaja Bonheim ♥️

Staying in is the new going out! Definitely my normal motto when I’m back in Scottsdale (old lady at heart haha). Spent some time again in my downtown area of my hometown grabbing a local coffee from this cute coffee and juice bar @owlandlark ☕️ ..and couldn’t resist this photo, how cute right! So many great places for cute photos. ❤️ both my top and my pants are under $20 each. 🙌🏼 Gotta love great deals..old navy has some of the cutest graphic tees too! Anyone else like oldnavy? .

Flatiron waves
.
See my highlights for a real-time example
.
@kristencolorshair has fine, highlighted hair so I kept my flatiron on medium heat (this is very important!)
I bend the hair in one direction and tap my iron on the bend while switching direction.
Partings are on a diagonal for max volume.
I used @Oribe Dry Texture spray to finish .
Kristen’s hair was originally prepped with @unite 7sec condition before drying to protect and nourish.  I would never attempt an iron style on unprotected, undermoisturized hair.  This is an important step that should not be forgotten! .

@Regrann from @kehinde_smith - It’s quite tiring when I hear people say places in Africa like Nigeria or Ghana isn’t a picturesque country. Errm.. How? 😕 Being a digital content creator isn’t only about capturing neatly arranged things. You have to have the eye to oversee the imperfection in many places even outside of Africa & capture those moments that are overlooked.. Because the truth of the matter is that the beauty is already there. You don’t have to travel anywhere to have great content.

Ok! Now let’s talk about what I’m wearing 😍  I went to the market with my girl @eirene_binabiba and the first thing I noticed was the Batakari! (My attire) There’s a specific design for the male & female. The one I’m wearing is the male design 😏. The Batakari is originally from the Northern region of Ghana and is hand woven from scratch. Paid about 120-150 GHC ($25-$30) for it. Ghana! Thank you so much for the warm hosting! I’ll be back again! Photo Credit: 📸 My partner in crime @tope_horpload Styled by my darling @_lharley_ My travel blog will be launching next week! Stay tuned guys. #KehindeTakesGhana #Ghana #Accra #YourMelaninGodmother #FashionBlogger #Chicagobloggers #AfricanBlogger #AfricanBloggers #WestAfrican #WestAfricangirl #WestAfrica

Date night with my husband just because it’s Friday ⭐️ and we don’t need a special occasion to enjoy each other! All we need is to keep passion on fire with years like first time! Do you practice date nights with your second half ladies?

Hyaluronic acid.  Sounds like scary stuff, right?  Wrong!  This compound is essential in maintaining your skin's moisturize barrier.  After you've cleansed and toned, gently tap the hyaluronic acid onto your skin, avoiding the eyes.  By tapping your skin, you're gently massaging and waking your skin cells up to take in the serum.  I have been using this in my #skincareroutine for the past year and it plumps up my skin, fighting off my fine lines and wrinkles.  Definitely a staple in my #skincarecollection.  You can purchase this on #Amazon with the product link below.

Hoy quiero compartir in poco más de mi historia, hace 2años yo no me daba cuenta de el sobrepeso que tenia y como eso afectaba mi vida emocional. Estuve en una relacion con una persona toxica y yo no me daba cuenta de para que me amaran primero tenia que amarme a mi misma, fueron varios meses de trabajo continuo. Cuando la relacion se termino mi mundo se fue abajo y no sabia como levantarlo, estaba muy mal. Un dia me encontre con un blog de fitness life que me llevo a conocer a @beachbody y dije va yo tambien quiero eso, a el principio comenzo como un quiero estar bonita para que se arrepienta y regrese conmigo y despues fue un wow!!! Que bien me siento y que bien me veo.. y tú tambien deberias intentarlo! Por cierto me la pasaba escuchando trap y reggaeton porque sinceramente te sube los ánimos😸✌

Hi friends!
I had a really rough last 24 hours. Just some personal things I’ve had to reflect on and think about-but I am not going to share the nitty gritty details here. (Side note: it has gotten so much better!!!) All I want to say is that if you’re having a tough time too-know that I adore and care about you!! Yes, each and every one of you. I wouldn’t be here doing what I’m doing without you here. So, thank you for your unending support and love (and patience). You’re the best! Don’t ever forget that 💕 (also, I’d like to amend the title to say “The Personal Empowerment Manifesto” bc you don’t need to be a cis girl to do any of these things. 😘) #fanappreciationpost #lovemyfollowers #yallrock #youtuber #subscribers #luckygal #beautuber #followfollowfollowfollow #youtubechannel #tinyinfluencer #chronicbeauty #chicagobloggers #wannabeinfluencer #empowerment #manifesto #youaresoenough #chicagogrammers #chronicblogger

Winning the day is: 1.) celebrating the 4yr anniversary of @Shred415 in the South Loop and winning a free class 2.) testing out the new Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew at @starbucks and getting a free one because they made the almond butter one instead of the cacao (I actually liked the almond butter one better🤫) and 3.) email on my phone stopped working so guess that means it’s time to disconnect and celebrate the freakin’ weekend!
•
Has anyone else tried the new Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew or the Cacao version @starbucks? It’s 100% plant-based and vegan, sweetened with a banana date syrup and blended with cold brew. It’s not nearly as sweet as a Frappuccino, with just 22g of sugar, has 12g of protein and was just the right pick-me-up after my @shred415 workout. Note that it’s 270 calories though, so think of this as a recovery food not something to sip alongside breakfast. Interested to hear what everyone else thinks!

Winning the day is: 1.) celebrating the 4yr anniversary of @Shred415 in the South Loop and winning a free class 2.) testing out the new Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew at @starbucks and getting a free one because they made the almond butter one instead of the cacao (I actually liked the almond butter one better🤫) and 3.) email on my phone stopped working so guess that means it’s time to disconnect and celebrate the freakin’ weekend! • Has anyone else tried the new Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew or the Cacao version @starbucks? It’s 100% plant-based and vegan, sweetened with a banana date syrup and blended with cold brew. It’s not nearly as sweet as a Frappuccino, with just 22g of sugar, has 12g of protein and was just the right pick-me-up after my @shred415 workout. Note that it’s 270 calories though, so think of this as a recovery food not something to sip alongside breakfast. Interested to hear what everyone else thinks! • • • #friyayvibes  #plantpower  #plantbasedprotein  #starbucks  #proteinshake  #recoveryfood  #hiitworkout  #chicagogram  #chicagofitness  #fitfoods  #caffeinated  #coffeelovers  #coffeeholic  #almondbutter  #almondproteinblendedcoldbrew  #cacao  #peaprotein  #proteinsmoothie  #veganeats  #veganshare  #newproduct  #cheerstotheweekend  #iworkout  #fitnessblog  #chicagobloggers  #eeeeeats  #thefeedfeed  #theshookslife 
Going through trauma therapy is hard. It brings up a lot of shit, and makes you analyze the moments you wish you could forget. It’s draining and confusing but if I want to get to the other side of recovery, going through the trauma is the only way to get out. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
One of the things I’ve recently realized is that I want to do a better job of owning my power and recognizing when I’m the actual problem. Which, of course, is more often than I would like to admit. 💙
.
In this post I talk about past experiences where I should have ended the relationship before it started.
.
🖤
I talk about how I could have recognized the red flags before romance was ever even on the table.
.
I talk about how I could have opted out so many times but I kept opting in, over and over again. .
And I talk about how I’m rebuilding and trying to overcome now.

Hitting pause on writing about the self-care challenge to soak up family time this weekend. Today we went to the only working lavender farm in Indiana. Purdy.

I love having time to cook for pleasure and not just for necessity! This lemon herb chicken was so delicious over brown rice. One thing that makes me sad is people believing they can’t enjoy healthy food. YOU CAN. Don’t believe the lies 😫. Feed your body food that is GOOD and is GOOD FOR YOU. That’s what Jesus would do. Anyways- I’ll add this recipe to the blog this weekend! What have you been cookin’ up lately? Comment and let me know!

// flashing back to a photo of me and my sister at a wedding circa 2017. it’s so weird looking at this photo and remembering how uncomfortable i was in my skin. i was so worried about my weight and my appearance. it was so hard to wear this outfit as it exposed one of my biggest insecurities. having strangers tell me that I look chubby was so difficult and demolished any self confidence i had. fast forward to today, i’m healthier and more confident in myself. though i have a lot more work to do, i’m so happy that i can reflect on this moment and know that i’ve improved in my confidence so much. it’s so hard to deal with bad feedback and rude comments about your appearance, but if i can do it, anyone can. °

It’s quite tiring when I hear people say places in Africa like Nigeria or Ghana isn’t a picturesque country. Errm.. How? 😕 Being a digital content creator isn’t only about capturing neatly arranged things. You have to have the eye to oversee the imperfection in many places even outside of Africa & capture those moments that are overlooked.. Because the truth of the matter is that the beauty is already there. You don’t have to travel anywhere to have great content.
.

Ok! Now let’s talk about what I’m wearing 😍  I went to the market with my girl @eirene_binabiba and the first thing I noticed was the Batakari! (My attire) There’s a specific design for the male & female. The one I’m wearing is the male design 😏. The Batakari is originally from the Northern region of Ghana and is hand woven from scratch. Paid about 120-150 GHC ($25-$30) for it. Ghana! Thank you so much for the warm hosting! I’ll be back again! Photo Credit: 📸 My partner in crime @tope_horpload Styled by my darling @_lharley_ My travel blog will be launching next week! Stay tuned guys. #KehindeTakesGhana #Ghana #Accra #YourMelaninGodmother #FashionBlogger #Chicagobloggers #AfricanBlogger #AfricanBloggers #WestAfrican #WestAfricangirl #westafrica
