I didn’t want to come back and announce my obvious hiatus, but here we are. In the past eight months (I honestly didn’t realize it had been that long) since I’ve posted, a lot has happened, and I honestly didn’t feel good enough about myself to post anything and I just wasn’t motivated or inspired enough to think of content ideas. It wasn’t until recently when one of my favorite rappers, Nipsey Hussle died, that I realized how short life is, and how his music always spoke to focusing on your passion, putting in the work and going after what you want. He’s inspired me greatly through words since 2010, and in his passing he inspired me to get off my ass and get to it.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about perfection, our obsession with it and our I nability to see ourselves for who we really are and love ourselves despite what social media says what’s in or what we should look like.
The weather in Dallas has been great lately, unfortunately it’s probably the last I will be outside because as the month of June is approaching so will the 100 degree days and I am not yet about that life. So what better thing to do then grab a drink and take some flicks. Also, this is the first time I’ve ever worn my natural hair out and I think I kind of like it. 🙂
The other day my co-workers and I were on the way to pick up lunch and had some time to spare so I had to stop in Retro Metro – this super cool speciality item shop in Frederick, MD – to pick up a few of my favorite candles.
If you’re reading this and know me well, then you know I keep candles all around my apartment. Candles are so soothing, they help calm you, clean the air in your space, and sleep better at night. I especially love to light candles – these Rosemary & Sea Salt ones specifically – when I am taking a Lavender and Epson Salt bath. I will line the bathtub with these and the warm water mixed with this amazing scent relaxes me and sometimes put me right to sleep!
