Sticks and Stones

This past Wednesday, March 30th, I decided to change my hair color from platinum blonde to silver/grey. So today I went to Walmart for the first time since having my hair colored grey. I’m not surprised to say that it turned into a bit of a social experiment, but what did surprise me were the … More Sticks and Stones

Cries at Night

I am a 21 year old female. I fall into a lot of stereotypes. I’m a college student, a daughter, a girlfriend, a friend. I am so many things. But there are also a lot of things that I am not. And from the time I was about 11 years old, I knew that I … More Cries at Night

Reflections

Be Mine, Valentine

A little over two weeks ago, Mychal and I had booked a couples photoshoot so we could have some updated pictures with this new weather we were experiencing, my hair nine inches shorter, his hair several inches longer, all of the changes we’d gone through. So we traveled an hour out to Lake Bistineau to … More Be Mine, Valentine

Beauty Routine

I’ve never been one to obsess over my make up routine or setting a foundation. I always grabbed something random, hoped it matched my skin tone and did the simplest thing that seemed to work. Then I grew up and actually started learning about skin care and matching tones and what looked good compared to … More Beauty Routine

Lessons of Adventure

I know many people and have many connections. However, few know anything about my personal/private/home life. They know nothing of how my life is once I leave campus, work, or Shreveport/Bossier in general. At the end of each day I migrate south to Stonewall, Louisiana where I live with my parents, both in their 60’s, … More Lessons of Adventure
