Wayne Dyer Quotes

transformation literally means going beyond your form.

there is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there's only scarcity of resolve to make it happen.

abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.

I implore you to see the universe as a warm and supportive one because you'll look for evidence to support this view. When you anticipate that the universe is friendly, you see friendly people. You look for circumstances to work in your favor. You anticipate good fortune flowing into your life.

when you're just like everybody else, you've nothing to offer other than your conformity.
stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.

you leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, 'I release the need for this in my life'.

 the willingness and ability to live fully in the now eludes many people. While eating your appetizer, don't be concerned with dessert

Stumbled upon one of my old posts today that made me smile. It's nice to feel like I'm living out some of the things that I set out for myself five years ago. Still a long way to go. Enjoying the journey. :)

Q&A: What Products Do I Use in My Natural Hair Routine?

I'm asked this question fairly often, and over the years the answer has changed. My hair isn't crazy about coconut oil (does nothing for me) or shea butter (eh.), but here are a few products that work wonders for me:

A few steps that I've added to my routine
that have helped retain length and minimize damage:

* taking daily (or when I can remember) biotin supplements
* adding more cucumber to my diet (a tip I learned from one of my vegan friends,  )
* doing twist/ braid outs vs. a pineapple at night (helps to decrease tangling and stretch my hair... combating shrinkage)
* investing in products with quality ingredients
* dry hair with an ole t-shirt

and last but not least, one of these bad boys! makes comb outs sooo much smoother.

hope this helps, and I will update this post as I discover new products. :)

Inspire the TRIBE x The Kxng RG Takeover feat. Miss H.E.R Recap

Here's one too many pictures from my interview with the Kxng RG Takeover and Miss H.E.R. This was my first (hopefully not last) radio interview and I was extremely nervous initially, but I really enjoyed discussing my brand. 

(SIDE NOTE: I think I will follow up with a 'Who Is Inspire the TRIBE?' post to answer some questions about myself and my journey - thus far. Leave any questions you might have in the comments. )

Weekend Recap: Sunday Funday x Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

I had some muchhhh needed girl time this weekend. Sunday's are perfect for museum hopping in DC because parking is free! We started at the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, made our way to Hank's Oyster bar and finished the night out at Penn Social (home of my favorite bartender, Hannah - Tell her I sent you!) It was a great time. The weather cooperated with us for the most part, but I am so over the winter, and counting down the days 'til spring.

Late Post: Pancakes (Donuts) and Booze Recap x INSPIRE THE TRIBE

(happy birthday J dilla! - I dedicated this one to you)
pancakes and booze

I know that I say this every time... but this may have been my favorite show so far, lol. I really love getting out and sharing my work with others. Doing shows brings me such a sense of fulfillment; I love when people ask about the inspirations behind my work, I love when people explain to me how a piece resonates with them. Overall, I love the sense of connection.

Thanks to each and every one of you who have supported me in any way, along the way. It is truly appreciated, and I look forward to what this year has to offer.

(SIDE NOTE: My bookmarks are taking off in a way that I could've never imagined - shout out to those of you who have purchased - there's a lot more on the way!)
