This post is sponsored as part of a partnership with Kroger. I received compensation for this post but all content and opinions are my own.

As you know I’m a huge fan of easy hairstyles so I’m super excited to share this style which is one of my favorites in the hopes that it will become one of yours as…

Intentional Living: Exploring My Artsy Side at Dallas Community Colleges

I can’t say that I’m naturally gifted when it comes to Art or other creative or “artsy” type stuff.

In my last post, I shared how I planned to be even more intentional about everything I do. Β Naturally, when the folks at Dallas Community Colleges (DCCCD) gave me the opportunity to tour one of…

They lived in a small, rural village and for part of time that I lived there, there were no electrical lines which meant we didn’t have access to electricity.

Success Does Not Happen By Accident – How You Can Attend Act Like A Success 2017

I am a member of the Act Like A Success Social Media Team and they provided me with compensation for this event. All thoughts and opinions expressed are mine. Two years ago I attended Steve Harvey’sΒ SOAR Retreat in Miami. When the opportunity to be part of the blogger team was presented to me, I was actually on vacation in Grenada and considered not making the trip to Miami. I am so happy I quickly came to my senses and decided…
