Testify Tuesday:Independent Women Make Some Noise

In all truth, you need to hush, take a seat, and put your feet up girl because I know you tired!  I have been separated a mere four days and I am about to pass out from exhaustion and the noxious smell of gasoline on my hands. Yes, the unapologetic feminist is going to say…

Testify Tuesday: Who Do You Call…

There is this song I love by Bruce Parham called Call on Jesus, that has this particular verse that says; “It can be a very desperate time in your life, they don’t have time for you”… Well, who are they?  Of course, they are the Tyrones, in which Erykah issued an edict for men to…

Testify Tuesday: Begin Now

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one…

Testify Tuesday: Weekend Warrior 

We all have heard the oh so trite adage, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Two things though, lemonade gives me acid reflux something terrible and I like something a little more refined.  Seriously, can we have some lavender or elderberry splashed in there.  But I digress.  These lemons are on sale, they are…

Testify Tuesday: Change of Perspective 

I stood in my home suffocating. No carbon monoxide wasn’t leaking, we don’t have natural gas. There was no smoke, no flames, no fire. I just felt like the air had been sucked out of my quaint high rise apartment. I opened the windows and a rush of unseasonably cold air blew quickly through the…

Testify Tuesday: Speak Well of You!

One of the “Four Agreements”, by author Don Miguel Ruiz is to be impeccable with your words.  I find this to be most important when you are talking about yourself.  Humor me for a moment!  When you speak about your BFF, what do you tend to say about them?  I am sure you dote on…

Testify Tuesday: My GW Playlist

Although I was seriously fuming that Waze directed me straight into a series of  accidents that were occurring on George Washington Memorial Parkway, at 2:30 pm.  I decided to enjoy the picturesque scenes the route offered and sought a playlist to listen to.  Now I am going to be completely honest here.  If I were…

Be Grateful for Your Judas!

My “Testify Tuesday” segment was delayed because I was torn as to whether to write a fluff piece about my dining experience this weekend or something a little closer to home.  See the last time a wrote about issues of the heart, my Judas balked. After going through various highs and lows, I came to the…

Testify Tuesday: Trunk Club Review

 Actually, this is my favorite piece.  It feels like love and fits like a glove!  It’s also the most reasonably priced at $58.00! This Alice & Olivia piece feels great and that’s all imma say…I’ll drop the price right here $368  Nic & Zoe BodyCon dress for $174 (psst it’s on sale now 😀)  Grandma thingy…

Testify Tuesday: No Regrets?!

I’m at a familiar crossroads. I was here almost 10 years ago. However, this time there really isn’t a struggle between falling back on what’s easiest, it’s just I’m a little stiff for the stretch. See the difference between 10 years ago and now is quite obviously time. I don’t have time to waste, to…

Testify Tuesday: Say Yes to the Sauna!

With a new year approaching, surely new experiences will abound.  Don’t run from them.  Rip your robe off and run butt naked into them.  I mean, when will you have the chance to experience life this way again? Will you make mistakes?  Of course!  However, if you live in fear of making mistakes, I fear…

#TBT: Atlanta Foodie Edition 

It’s Christmas Eve and in the Mid-70s in the District.  The White Christmas I dreamt of is still that, a dream.  It was colder in Atlanta last year this time as we made our way to Lake Oconee for our family vacation.  It is a tradition that was started way before I was married.  I…
