With a love for hair and makeup, Tati began a YouTube channel to teach women how to achieve certain hairstyles or makeup looks! She also does hair reviews, makeup tutorials and a ton of DIY videos (my favorite). Personally, I love her videos because they are beginner friendly and she’s super fun to watch.

I love love Asatou’s sense of fashion. Throughout her travels around the world, she creates these beautiful style diaries. Which I love because I love her modern style. Besides fashion, Asatou is a makeup artist and a model. I am so excited for her as she was featured essence.com for the Dance Africa Street Style 2017 !! Follow her on IG @asatousohna

Beautycon Festival here in New York City was an adventure of its own. I learned about different beauty companies that I never knew of before. However, the highlight of the festival for me was Gabrielle Union! Shes more flawless in person!! Anyways, she shared some inspirational tips, talked about her book; “We’re going to need more wine” and her new hair product line; Flawless Hair.
People come to these types of festivals for different reasons. Since I am fairly new in the blogging community I wanted to meet bloggers like myself and learn about different beauty companies. Mission accomplished! Below you will find a list of freebies that I got!

Although the idea of being on a boat freaks me out, I wanted to challenge myself to try something new and so I did! I went on a boat, with two program assistants who made my experience memorable. Generally speaking, the whole staff are knowledgeable and very passionate about their work (which honestly put me at ease). This is a great experience and if you are a Bronxite or looking to visit The Bronx, I suggest you stop by for a row! You have everything to gain and nothing loose, plus its free.
Whether you want to row or sail, both are completely free. This opportunity however is available from Memorial day to Labor day, as listed on the website. So go ahead and pick any Saturday from 1pm to 6pm for some fun!
Thank you for reading!
Sure, everyone wants to succeed and live a comfortable life but the ultimate goal is to be happy. Right? Think about it. Take a second and ask yourself about the things that bring you pure joy. Can you name a few? Although this may be possible, it is rare that you meet someone who wants to be unhappy. We want to finish school, succeed in our career, make our family proud, buy nice things, why? Everyone craves a taste of happiness but what is that? We go to work everyday and live our normal days not knowing exactly what truly makes us happy.
Uncovering your happiness can lead to a whole new view in your life. This question is very important in order to understand and enjoy the life that we live. This is not about your mom or your friend, this is solely about you and no one else. I mean honestly. What makes you happy? Cooking, dancing, traveling, teaching, what is it? What drives you to get up in the morning? (Please comment and share below) ♥
Hey you guys! May was such a busy month! What were some of your highlights from May? (Comment and share below)
Looking back, May was so much fun for me and here’s why:
- Fitness goal accomplished
As a follow up to my April goal, this month I mastered my goal of running for a minimum of at least twenty minutes, three days a week. Yippie!! I have dropped five pounds just by running a few times a week. My favorite part of this small workout, is that its just twenty minutes and its completely free! On top of that, you feel so much better and stronger after every single run.
This month I read four amazing books. One book for self development, another book for inspiration and two fun non fiction books! I loved each one, but if I had to choose which one I enjoyed the most it’ll be “The Happiness Project”. This book can be a hit or miss, depending on the reader. However, reading this book has taught me so much about myself and my future goals. Nonetheless, all books are amazing in their own ways.
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

A cup of comfort for inspiration by Colleen Sell
- Tried four new yummy recipes!
I’m not too sure about ya’ll but I love good food. Before I enjoyed the idea of paying for a home cooked meal until I took a cooking class in Italy and realized that I can make anything that I want to in my own kitchen! I also love food network and recipe books. By keeping a list of recipes that I want to try, here’s what I scratched off for this month.
Jamaican yellow cornmeal porridge
Shrimp Rasta Pasta (my new fav recipe)

Jamaican Yellow Cornmeal Porridge
Cheers, to a great month!
