My 3 Day Cleanse

My 3 Day Cleanse

Review, Support Black Business
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, nutritionist, personal trainer, or any other medical professional. This is MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE with a juice cleanse that worked for ME. Consult your doctor before beginning any new program/activity. I recently lost weight and was looking for a way to sort of jump-start the next phase. I worked really hard during the school year, and when summer break began, I got kind of loosey-goosey with the eating. Luckily, I didn’t go too overboard and decided after a month to get back on track. I had seen a few friends online post about a local juicing company and decided to follow them to get ideas. After seeing their content, menus, and options for a cleanse, I decided to reach out and ask a few questions.…

Book Review: I’m A Pretty Little Black Girl

Book Review: I’m A Pretty Little Black Girl

Book Lovers, Empowerment, Review, Support Black Business
A few months ago, I went on an intentional search for books written for and about black girls and women. While I did find a few books with black characters, I was shocked to find upon further research that quite a few of the authors of those books were not black women or even black men for that matter. I won’t dive into my theory and disappointment on this post because what I did find made several girls that I teach and me very happy, and that’s the book I’m A Pretty Little Black Girl written by Betty K. Bynum. I absolutely fell in love upon my first reading. I thought to myself- where had this book been when I was a little girl? My son, who shares my love…

This Is Us: The Experience

Review, Support Black Business
Let me start by telling you that I was not at the This Is Us Conference wearing my blogger hat. I was there to support and assist in ensuring the day went as smoothly as possible. It was such a phenomenal experience that I knew I just had to write about the beautiful day. The flyer Let me take you back. Last year I began volunteering with different organizations at least once a month. I had been following the This Is Us social media page, and when I saw the advertisement for the conference, I considered attending as a guest. A little while later I saw they needed people to volunteer for the entire day and I thought that would be my March service, so I reached out and volunteered…
