I’m practicing health and safety first – meaning I’m pretty much stuck at home – now I really miss all the new workouts I got to try last month! Here’s the full review of last month’s barre/yoga class…
Happy Friday, dolls! Here’s what I did this week:
🍳 Sunday Brunch: @biyoubk feels like you’re sitting in someone’s New Orleans kitchen getting a home cooked meal. There’s only one hard working chef, so be prepared to have a relaxing, leisurely meal
I always have Prosecco chilled in my fridge– this way I’m always prepared to celebrate! Lately, I’ve been sipping on Prosecco from Cupcake Vineyards. It feels good to have a friend over for dinner and toast to her accomplishments (or mine!). Thankfully with the dope group of women I have in my circle, celebrations happen often at my apartment!
As co-founder of theCURVYcon, my dreams are coming true, which also means that my work life is a lot more demanding than it used to be. This is a beautiful thing, but I don’t get to spend as much time just hanging out as I used to. I’m noticing that people in my life are much more appreciative of time spent together, than they are a perfect meal made from scratch. So, I do the best I can and give myself grace so that I “don’t make perfect the enemy of good” -Voltaire
A few months ago, I moved into my dream apartment here in New York City. This apartment is the first time I’ve rented a space completely on my own with no help from my parents. I’m growing up, yall!
At first when I moved in, I was really intimidated by the idea of interior decorating. I was convinced that I didn’t have the talent for home decor. I reached out to a bunch of decorators to help me, but no one I contacted was the right fit.
I’m learning in life, that if something isn’t coming together smoothly, it means I need to take a pause and revisit my approach.
I sat in a semi-furnished apartment for MONTHS and then it finally hit me… maybe I should be the one to decorate my space! I know what I like and more importantly, I know how I want my home to feel.
As a Cancerian (June 26th), my living space is like my crab shell. I want to feel safe and cozy! So, maybe my new apartment would feel most like home if I had a hand in decorating it myself.
We are just days away from Christmas! As I celebrate the holidays for the first time in my new apartment, I am challenging myself to create an epic Christmas decor moment using items from JCPenney! Click to find out how I did, and details on a Christmas giveaway I’m holding.
