With our world shifting to all things virtual, I am able to attend a lot more events that are hosted by organizations I really admire. While I would oftentimes try to attend these events in person previously, I found myself running into different scheduling conflicts or having to justify driving a far distance for only a couple of hours of my day. When these events are held after the work day, especially, it becomes easier to talk yourself out of it rather than rushing halfway across town. While the limitations to virtual events are those in-person connections and potential networking opportunities, it provides accessibility which is extremely important. I am not only given the opportunity to attend and learn, but I am also given the opportunity to share my thoughts with you all. Further, I can help promote people and/or their work with the audience I have here which is the most fun part. 🙂
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a review of a webinar I attended and today, we are doing the same!! I attended a presentation called “Abundance Goal Setting” which was hosted by Bold Babes Co. If you have been following me for a while, you will know that Bold Babes Co. hosted the first event I attended as a formal blogger. I have since been following the organization’s journey through social media which leads us to present-day. Continue reading “Abundance Goal Setting Session Powered by Bold Babes Co (Review)”
I went back and forth about sharing my annual birthday post and the revelations I have come to over the last year of life, but eventually, I thought to myself, “Why not share?” After making the decision to take a hiatus last month, I felt stuck between a rock and a hard place. The year of 25 was, for the most part, an exceptional year for me; I traveled to England, France, Hawaii, and the Dominican Republic. I even explored Fredericksburg, Texas and returned to Washington D.C. after three years. Outside of traveling, I taught myself how to create and edit vlogs and ultimately settled on the vision I wanted for this blog and my YouTube channel. Even more importantly, I met the most perfect man that has only brought joy to my life since our first date. ❤ Overall, you could say the last year on this earth has been pretty amazing!! Until recently, that is.

Long time, no…write? If you read my last blog post, you would know I intentionally took a hiatus given the current climate. After making the decision to position this blog as more travel-centered, I was obviously at an impasse for providing interesting and relevant content. Until now, that is. I should say that you shouldn’t expect any trips in the near future and instead, like everything else in the world, the content on this blog may have to pivot for the time being. Still, I am so excited to feel inspired and motivated again after a month and some change of feeling like I’d hit a dead end. In travel-related news, I tuned into a webinar hosted by The Black Travel Summit this past Saturday called “STAY-CATION” and wanted to share my thoughts with you all!!

Happy March, everyone!!
Though we are sadly no longer in Black History Month (but are excitingly in Women’s History Month), supporting black businesses, sharing black stories, and continuing discourse about black experiences does not have an end date. I worked extremely hard not only on my blog, but also the content I specifically created for my Instagram as well as my YouTube videos for Black History Month. The bulk of it was two months in the making, so I would greatly appreciate just a little bit of your time in reading/viewing and/or sharing that content!! ❤
So, solo travel… I always thought this was a MUST-DO in my lifetime. It seems so introspective and almost like a rite of passage for self-growth. For women specifically, solo travel has become more and more popular the more information we are handed and the more other women share their stories. However, taking the actual plunge to go somewhere near or far can still be daunting. I mean, if people don’t know how to be single for more than a month, how many are comfortable with the idea of being completely by themselves in a place they have never been before.
