The Real Reason Nobody Came to Your Event

The real reason nobody came to your event is because nobody knew it was going on. Sure, you posted the flyer a few times and asked a couple of your girls to come support, but that's not enough. You must be strategic about marketing your events to the right people at the right place at the right time. Below are 5 ways to market your next event.

Goodbye 26, Hello 27

I was in a weird space mentally, emotionally and spiritually for a lot of year 26. Honestly, I was mad at God for allowing my papa to get sick and to die and frustrated with the changes that happened before and after his death. Have you ever watched someone that you love deeply die? It sucks, yet somehow in the midst of this pain and trying time my now-husband asked for my hand in marriage. Goodbye 26, Hello 27

Go At Your Own Pace

Do you ever start to scroll on Instagram then start to feel like you aren’t doing enough? I have been there and honestly the feeling of inadequacy sucks, but the key to happiness is to go at your own pace. Paul says in Philippians 4:11 NLT, “Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with what I have.”

Cannes Lions Was Life-Changing

Cannes Lions was life-changing. My agency chose me to be apart of the Cannes Can: Diversity Collective, which was started by Adrienne Smith. She wanted to see more young faces of color at Cannes Lions. Adrienne literally built the program from 5 scholars to 25 scholars in 1 year and created Inkwell Beach. That’s huge, like someone starting a T-shirt hustle out their trunk then being sold worldwide in less than a year. That’s crazy growth and I’m forever grateful to Adrienne for her perseverance, optimism, and pep talks. She empowered each Diversity Collective scholar with these words, “Don’t just talk about it, be about it.”

Girl, I’m Back and I’m Better

In the famous words of Bey, “I took some time to live my life, but don’t think I’m just his little wife.” I’m so excited to start incorporating content creation back into my life. It feels like forever since I’ve had the time and energy to create amazing content. I’ve missed the freedom and joy that comes with art, so here I am back like I never left.

Fur Coat x Liquid Pants x Aldo Boots

I'm a sucker for fun outerwear. When I saw this coat at Forever21 in the Plus section last year, I knew I had to have it. I paired it with some of my favorite pants from H&M. They're cute and comfy but squeak like crazy. Aside from that, I'm obsessed with them. They fit like a glove and look great with anything.
