The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is a big deal in Detroit. I mean, we’re known as the “Motor City” after all! This year marks the 30th anniversary of the NAIAS and the last time that the event will be held at Cobo. In 2020, the show will take place in June, sandwiched between the Grand Prix and the Ford Fireworks. Not only will the summer exhibition be more enjoyable for visitors weather-wise, but it will also allow automobile companies to showcase their new models outdoors at Hart Plaza, the Riverwalk, Campus Martius and Grand Circus Park.Read More
#ProjectYouToday is Liz Louize's body positivity campaign that encourages women to celebrate who they are in this exact moment. Far too often, women hold themselves back from things out of fear of not being "thin enough," "pretty enough," "smart enough," the list goes on and on. We set these unattainable expectations for ourselves, knowing that they are unreasonable and farfetched, and then tear down our self-esteem when those "goals" are not reached. Maya Angelou once said, "You alone are enough, you have nothing to prove to anybody." As women, we need to remember and understand this. We are all on this earth to serve a purpose. We are beautiful, inside and out, and we should not wait until that "perfect moment" to start enjoying our lives.Read More
It's been a full 365 days since I took on the role of the Digital & Social Media Associate for the City of Detroit. This calls for cupcakes! (Chocolate, please.) I know I've been saying this a lot lately, but time really does fly! I remember how anxious and excited I was when I first started. I was just so happy to finally be working in a field where I could utilize my journalism degree!Read More
As a self-proclaimed bargain shopper, I always try to take advantage of a good sale. A few weeks back, Zara had a really good one, and I got some great pieces that I am so pleased with!
I ended up ordering a pair of pants, two tops, and most favorite piece: an oatmeal-colored suede coat with a pastel pink lining.Read More
Indigo & Jade uses natural, handmade products to promote positive energy and healthy skin. After I used each product, my skin felt so soft, smooth and moisturized. And the best part about all of them is that I knew exactly what they were made out of. That's one of the major benefits about using natural things! You can eliminate asking, "Is this good for my skin?"Read More
Resolution lists can be so cliché. You write out a bunch of stuff that sounds cute to do, but in the back of your mind, you know you'll already have forgotten about them before February rolls around. As I started thinking about 2018 and all that I hope it brings to me, I had a revelation: Do resolution lists fail because we're not disciplined enough to work through them?Read More
I'm really proud of myself for all of my accomplishments. I made a list of things I wanted to get done this year, and while I didn't check off every single box, I believe that I set a good foundation that will carry me into 2018. Read More
I've been working for the City of Detroit for about four months now, and I still get the question from friends and family about what exactly it is that I do.Read More
There is not enough time in the day – or so it seems. Lately I've been feeling like I can't possibly accomplish everything I want in a mere 24 hours. Talk about impossible!
I'm sure there's a lot of you busy bees out there that feel the same way as me. But I have a sad revelation for y'all (read: us): what if we're just really bad at managing our time?Read More
I've been a government employee for a week now! Lol. A lot of you have been asking me how the new job is going so far, and I would like to start off by saying, thanks for asking! Everything is going pretty well. I know it's only been a week, but I like this new gig quite a bit already. I mean, I no longer have to pay for parking, so how could it get any better?!Read More
