#19: Why am I doing this again? 5 reasons to keep writing

So I missed a day. The goal was 30 Blogs in 30 days, but I missed yesterday. Not that I didn’t write (in fact I’m in the middle of two different essays), but after getting home at 3am and rising early for a jam-packed day… I did have a “why am I doing this again?” moment. Instead [...]

#12: Tips for getting my skin back on point!

Have you heard about my skin issues? (Read all about them here: Part 1 & Part 2.)

4 Steps I’m Taking to Avoid a “Catfish” Situation

As a person who spends most of my life either on my computer or on my phone, I have never hesitated to online date. Sure, I’ve had creeps make me feel gross after they sent an inappropriate sexual “compliment” in a message… but that’s also happened to me on the subway. Just like I take [...]

On Kink and Communication: 3 Tips From a Dominatrix

Late to the party, I recently completed the “50 Shades of Gray” Trilogy. And let’s just say I wasn’t scandalized. Then again, erotica is nothing new to me. In high school I read every Zane book there was and over the last year I’ve listened to all of Dan Savage’s sex advice podcasts. So no, not many things [...]

5 Tips for Flirting, Onscreen and Off

My vlog question this month was what makes someone a “Smooth Talker.” After many interviews, I’ve concluded that a big part of it is showing romantic interest in someone in a way that gets them interested too. Otherwise known as flirting—something I am constantly being accused of, even when my interest is 100% non-romantic. However, [...]

5 Videos to Inspire and Motivate

Whenever you have a dream, you will always have events or people in your life that will try and derail your focus. And for most of us, the number one person holding us back, is ourselves.

Top 5 Records On Repeat In Sierra Leone

I just came back from spending 3 weeks in Sierra Leone for the holidays, and my feet have not recovered from all the dancing I did while I was there. One thing I LOVE about Sierra Leoneans (and most Africans in general) is we know how to have a good time! And I don’t care if [...]
