5 Things I have learned during quarintine


At the point you are reading this, I have been 'social distancing' for about 70+ days (you guys are just joining me)...

So I am gonna take a quick break to tell you about the 5 things I have learned while being in the house....

1. You can literally learn ANYTHING on YouTube. 
I have learned to make hot glue wigs, waist beads, and candle making thus fair ....
I may take up nails if these salons don't open up soon...
Outside of my hair (which is essential since of my vitamin deficiencies and my stylist is dope as hell ), I have learned that a lot of things I pay for are for experience and are luxury....Not to discredit industry professionals because they are professionals but I do feel better knowing I can maintain things or learn new skills.

2. Delivery services are LIFE....
I honestly save money buy utilizing delivery services, because I am the person at Target picking up shit I didn't go in there for......
God bless the Amazon, Instacart ,UPS,Shipt,etc  workers who keep us out of stores....
PLEASE TIP THEM WELL.

3. People don't check their mail (me included)
So I have sent several Cheryl &Co cookie cards to let some people know I was randomly thinking about them, and I had to tell them to go check which kinda ruined the surprise, but I'd rather do that than have some 5 month old cookie in your mail box lol

4. You save ALOT of money sitting at home.
I have been completely BLESSED to have transitioned from medical leave to work from home so I have been able to move a little differently .

5. Use the buddy system when subscribing to streaming .
So I am a total believer of being communal when having Netflix, Disney +, Hulu,etc. These companies don't need everyones $12, so I trade log ins with my friends and try not to watch their shows.

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

I kinda did a thing......Nothing major...

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
