Pink Is Not Cancelled

As we all know by now, Living Coral was named the Pantone color of the year. And honestly i'm not impressed with that one! That’s not to say that the luminous pastels and bright neons are going anywhere. In fact, if fashion week’s recent runway shows and this years’ red carpet looks are any indication, colors like marigold, fiery reds, bold blues, and vibrant pink will be on everyone’s style radar. Pink is and will always be my forever color, it's feminine, chic, modern, playful, and undeniably a strong stand out color! For me pink is the color of women independence, and it's no surprise that it's a popular color for the month of March!


Sleep Or Bust

Lately I feel like i've been hearing a lot of talk about "circadian rhythms." Probably because half of America barely get's the adequate amount of sleep, including myself. At best, I usually bank on 6 steady hours of sleep before my body decides to wake me up before the alarm goes off. Sleep experts say that we need no more and no less than 8 consecutive hours of sleep to feel energized, accomplish our goals, go for gold, etcetera. But sleeping is much harder than that! With the LED screens that we're constantly staring at, all the work to be done, who actually sleeps?! There are essentially 5 stages of sleep, but what happens to our bodies and minds when we go to sleep? The most important stage being REM.


Hair Care Lately

I may be biased in saying this, but I believe curly/ kinky/ coily hair is the best hair! As a member of this hair group community, I think highly textured hair is where the party is. However, as many curly and coily haired gals can attest, maintenance can be brutal. Using countless products that do nothing, going on an endless search for that holy grail product, battling frizz and buildup, and hairstyles that just don't work. Sometimes changing your routine can feel daunting but the benefit is that it can revamp those dull hair days and keep your wild mane looking glamorous and frizzless.

Fit Style Destination

As a fitness buff, I tend to wear more workout gear than "normal" clothes. Between working out and just working, it's hard for me to get properly dressed and honestly care to get dressed. Therefore, I tend to be "that" girl in the friend group! When I stumbled upon Carbon38, a site that caters to fashion forward women who love athletic gear, I was in heaven!


New Year, New Motivation

With the new year ahead of us, and the holidays behind, it's time to focus on yourself. Let 2019 be the year of a healthier lifestyle. Winter can be brutal, but playing catch up on your fitness routine is even worse come spring time! If we're anything like our furry friends, we tend to eat a little extra and pack on the pounds a bit, to stay warm until the warmer seasons. It's understandably scientifically  natural, but it's also imperative that we don't burrow into a cave, aka the couch, and get our bodies moving! Believe me, I understand the logic of not wanting to "suffer" in the cold or feel the least bit of the wintery air upon our skin, thankfully there are options to keep yourself warm and stylish throughout winter!
