A lot of people ask me how I manage to balance school, blogging, and a personal life. And the answer is that it’s not always easy. I’ve had to say a no to a lot of events with friends or be glued to my phone during family gatherings to make sure my posts were published correctly. Now that it’s the holidays, it’s even harder to feel like I have a grip on everything. Blogging has become more than a side-hustle for me and I can’t always just let it go for other projects. I have a few tips on how to stay sane and make sure that you can not only do it all but do it well.
Whether you’re ready to start a new career or patiently awaiting post-grad life, moving is not as easy as it seems. Even for an extrovert like myself, it’s hard to put yourself out there and make new connections. I’ve moved 3 times in the past year (I know, I’m crazy): Back home after Auburn, New York City, and finally, Greenville. Whether it’s big cities or small towns, check out all of my moving tips below!
When I started my blog in 2015, I wanted to be one of the first black fashion bloggers. Crazy, right? I was really naive enough to think that there wasn’t a lot of us out there. As I began searching through hashtags like #blackgirlswhoblog and #browngirlbloggers and finding inspiration on Pinterest, it became abundantly clear that I wasn’t alone. If there were so many of us, why wasn’t I seeing black fashion bloggers on my feed?
