Sage Smudging for Aromatherapy.

Creating A Positive Atmosphere In My Home.

I have been on a quest for creating balance in my life. Lately, I have been so tired. Managing my business Chi Chi Sophistication Kids Natural Hair Studio has been taking up a considerable chunk of my time. Unless you are a hairstylist, most people do not know how taxing styling hair can be on the mind and body as well as always being available to continually servicing someone else needs. My career isn’t going away anytime soon, so I began looking for ways to be intentional about, creating a more favorable environment for my family and me.

Your Destiny Lives Inside Your Hearts Desire.

When Your Plans Fail Yet The Outcome Remains The Same.

In the year 2010, I enrolled in The Writer’s Institute Of Children’s Literature. The online writing course filled my heart with so much joy. I learned so much about children’s literature.

My conditions seem so much bigger than my goals, I really couldn’t see past my circumstances. So for an extended period of time, I felt stuck. And in feeling stuck, I became extremely depressed.

All Great Achievements Require Time

Do the best you can with what you have.

In November 2014, God blessed my husband and me to become first-time homeowners. It was a dream we shared together for many years. I can remember laying in bed with my husband during pillow talk two-years prior, discussing what our life would be like if we ever owned a home.

It was nice sharing the possibilities of building a better life for our family. And so the process of finding a home began. Continue reading

#ProtectingYourPeace #SelfCare

None of us are oblivious to being disappointed. Excuse my French, but shit happens. Even while trying to do all the right things, sometimes conflict seems to come out of nowhere. That’s life right? Although life happens, most of us are taught to make lemonade out of the sour lemons that have been tossed in our direction. And yes that sounds sweet, but what about the feelings of sadness, anger, confusion, and lack of trust deriving from the situations we sometimes find ourselves associated? The recipe for developing pink lemonade doesn’t sound as easy to create? Continue reading
