France Living!

Ummm… I think I’m dating France   France is like a boyfriend; he gets on your nerves all the time but you can’t seem to leave him. You hate him one moment and are head over heels in love the next. In February 2016, I packed up most of my belongings and headed to Bordeaux…

Tola Lawal

“Not all those who wander are lost.” This is the quote that comes to mind to describe Tola. A true creative always in her own world thinking of new ways to make and be part of change. Having tried to get her on the phone unsuccessfully due to both our busy schedules, it made my…

Lil’ Chano from 79th

I really enjoyed watching the Grammys yesterday and it wasn’t because my fav Beyoncé shut it down but because of Chance The Rapper. Now I won’t sit here and pretend to be well versed in all things Chance but I will say I have paid attention to his career and admired everything about his delivery….

Self-Awareness

Self-awareness is described as having a clear perception of your personality including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation and emotions. But do you really know yourself? I strongly believe once you know yourself, no matter the weakness or strength you have, it can never be used against you. Self awareness is a gift. It is why…

Kandace Barker

Pay Attention.

A lot of people don’t live up to their true potential and they blame God, the universe, how they were raised or whatever it is they believe in. What if I tell you that you’re the cause of your own problems? At least most of the time because you don’t pay attention. Our path to…

All work and no play makes this Goal Digger a very dull girl so I decided to join my friends on a trip to Puerto Rico. It was my first time on the island and it was a good experience. Some of what I enjoyed on the trip is how nice and helpful the people…

Black Art!

I am soooooo happy with the Golden Globes. Yes we still have a long way to go when it comes to recognizing black greatness in Art but yesterday, I was so proud. The Globes not only recognized but also honored black actors who have been putting in work. Tracee Ellis Ross – She’s my big…

New Year!

  Now that the holiday season is over, it’s back to business as usual. It’s a new year so out with the old and in with the new. I’m not going to lie. I had a rough NYE and as I sat in church ushering in the new year a million and one things ran…

Are You Ready?

  A lot of times we are so sure we want something. We ask God for it and then we’re in a hurry for it to manifest. We get anxious and begin to look for solutions ourselves. Do you know that God wants to bless us more than we want to be blessed? Knowing this,…
