What’s in my bag?

I have nothing but love (from a distance kind of love) for handbags. I like my handbags compatible and easy to carry around because the bigger they are, the more I carry 🙈. But anyway here is what’s in my bag: 1. Money – This is pretty obvious right!? 2. Mints Fresh breath always 😂…

Naomi

I bet at one point in your life you have screamed out “Why God Why?”. I have *no lie* and lately, that’s all that has been on my lips. I have been in the Egypt of despair for 9 days but who is counting and I am out of coins for positivity. It started with…

On The Road To Damascus

When I was a child I was both terrified and excited about Moses and the burning bush because I didn’t know if I would stay for a voice in a burning bush without the African in me cartwheeling outta there. I was in awe of Moses. Who isn’t? When I grew up, I thought God…

I Prayed For You: Egypt of Desire

There I was, at another wedding trying so hard not to cry because as usual, I was riding solo. I didn’t even have arm vegetables forget arm candy, I was riding solo in life and solo at weddings too (how sad). I planned(I do Plan) to make my future Boaz show off this Ruth at…

Girl Code

I was 12 years old when I broke the girl code (*sigh*) and  I regret everything about that day. You see, I bloomed late and at 12 boys were still gross and dumb (relatable right!?)…Here goes… So the smart boy from the next class fancied my friend so he asked me to pass to her…

Mental Health Matters

For many of us, anxiety and depression are as foreign as a llama in your driveway.  Like doing budgets, or pretending to not be embarrassed about buying birth control (I know you know what I mean) and helping an old woman carry her groceries to the buses. Anxiety is the thing some people use to…

I Prayed For You

The first time I remember writing down a prayer for my future husband was when I was 16 years old. I had listened (yes listened) intently to the written sermon in Brio Magazine and decided I needed to pray for my Boaz/King David . I wondered if he prayed for me, thought of me and…

So This Is What’s Up At Zim Thrive?

So a bird (like a really big bird) told me that Zim Thrive has released their events calendar and I am in awe. I probably won’t get invited because nobody wants me spilling coffee (like physically) on anyone so I probably will live vicariously through you because you are going right?. This is that homecoming…

Not Another Angry Woman

I realized I was messed up  (like I am a drama queen) during my period when I caressed my cramping stomach and told my exiting never made it egg (almost baby) to behave and silently thanked the heavens that it was never fertilized. Please don’t judge me ( I do that every day), I do…

Prisoner 087

Orange is the new black has a sequel and I am in it! I am prisoner 087 and I am stuck here with no parole unless I can get a hotshot badass lawyer like Harvey Specter to come argue my case. You are probably thinking I killed my husband or robbed a bank but nope…
