EVENT RECAP: FoundHERS with Rosie O’Neil

Hey guys! Last week, I checked out the FoundHERS Speakers Series! It’s a monthly series of fireside chats with super successful women. The February speaker was Rosie O’Neil, the co-founder of Sugarfina, a luxury candy boutique. She was really inspiring and I tried to soak up all the knowledge I could– homegirl was dropping jewels! …

January Blues

With every New Year’s Eve comes a whole new list of personal goals. But with that list also comes a whole bunch of new anxieties and disappointments. My January kicked off with a bang! Things were falling into place left and right. Even goals that I forgot about were falling into formation. Listen, I was …

Giving Back Is Better Than Secret Santa!

I did things a little different this past holiday season. I was that girl who didn’t participate in Secret Santa with my co-workers. Yeah, I caught some shade but you know what? I don’t even care because I had a higher purpose. I saved up that extra money to give back in a big way! …

End of Year Reflections

It’s almost the end of the year so, like a lot of you, I’ve been reflecting on 2018– the highs, the lows and everything in between. If you’ve been following me, you already know that 2018 was, uhm, an INTERESTING year for me. LOL! I got divorced, started a new career, moved, and started a …

My First Birth!

I’ve been pretty emotional for the last few days because my first birth is away month. Uhm, no, I’m not pregnant. LOL! I mean, my first birth as a doula!   I’ve known my first doula client for almost 10 years. We met back when we were both working in the retail industry. She has …

Celibacy Blues

Recently I was talking to some friends about sex. Ok, calm down, it’s not what you think. LOL! We were talking about celibacy and how what that word’s meaning has changed over the years. Like, in our 20’s after one bad relationship, we might have decided we needed to chill out on sex for a …

#MeToo x Kavanaugh

This Kavanaugh hearing has triggered some deep emotions for a lot of women– me included. One most surprising things I noticed as I moved through the city this week was the number of conversations suggesting that Kavanaugh’s behavior should be brushed under the rug. I find this disappointing because I too am a survivor of sexual …

Unpack To Grow

Life happens, ya’ll. I know because life has really been giving me the business lately! LOL! I thought about this recently when my homegirl told me she hadn’t unpacked from a trip that was 6 months ago! Does that sound like you? Me too (sometimes). The thing is, when we don’t unpack from the past, …

I Get It From My Momma

Hey guys! It’s your girl, Wasidah, and today I wanna talk to you about genetics. Some of you have asked me about how to become curvy and voluptuous even though your parents and grandparents are super thin. Likewise, a few of you have been asking me what it takes to go from curvy to thin. …
