February has flown by! I am proud of the content I have been sharing with you all lately on Instagram. I have been having fun creating outfit reels and sharing more of my work outfits and weekend looks in motion. I have also been having fun creating new outfits with my clothes. Due to planning a wedding this year, I have been considerate of my expenses and minimized my consumption of goods.
Winter can be a difficult season for most. The cold and evenings that are dark early make it difficult to feel motivated and excited. There are some key things I try to do to keep myself busy and entertained throughout the winter so it does not feel as dreary as it looks. Read more to see what I have been doing this winter.
It has been a while since I shared a few images and links of products that I have posted on my Instagram over here on the blog. If you are not following me on Instagram you will see many more daily looks, reels, and other things that I love in the moment on stories. I want to do these monthly recaps so you can easily find product links to previous posts as well.
The books I read in a year are some of my favorite posts to share! I genuinely enjoy reading as a way to slow down and relax. It is my favorite way to connect with others who I know read as well. This past year was a busy one so my goal for 2023 to give myself at least 30 minutes per day to read was not as successful as I hoped. But, I am still going into 2024 with the same goal!
I am excited to introduce you to Ashley the creator of Black Girls Have Anxiety Too Podcast. She created this podcast a few years ago to create a safe space for Black women to talk about their mental health journeys. This podcast is insightful and helpful to know that you are not alone.
This year I am proud that I have read more than one book! Being in grad school, focusing on content creation for my blog and IG, working full-time, etc I did not prioritize my reading time like I used to. I finished up 2022 reading nine books of all different genres from personal finance to fictional summer reading.
I feel like it goes without saying but kindness does go a long way. We can change the course of someone’s day by just doing one simple act. This holiday (but really every day) challenge yourself to brighten someone’s day whether it is a stranger, coworker, or family member. Small acts can be the most meaningful gifts.
