#ProjectYouToday

#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.

Luxury Garage Sale Comes to Michigan

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Luxury Garage Sale’s pop up shop celebration in Birmingham with a handful of other Metro Detroit bloggers and influencers!

When I walked into the shop I was in awe of how many pieces they had! It was almost unbelievable to think that people had given their luxury items away to be sold for someone else to purchase - and for such low prices, too!

It's My Workaversary!

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!

$60 Well Spent

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.

Hair

Hair is such a fickle thing. It can break off, tangle, grow longer, fall out, change colors...it's not always consistent. Why do we put so much emphasis on something that is just going to do what it wants to do when it's all said and done? Taking care of your hair is extremely important, and I believe that healthy hair should always be the ultimate goal, but hair should not be the be-all and end-all for you.

Indigo & Jade Review

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?"

18 Things I Plan to Do in 2018

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?

#TeenVogueSummit Meetup

Last month I happened to be scrolling down my Instagram feed when I saw one of my sheroes, Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Elaine Welteroth, post a video about the new Teen Vogue Summit in LA this December. After watching Elaine talk about how amazing the Summit is going to be, I immediately clicked the link in her bio to check out the cost of the tickets. Now, as a two-time Teen Vogue Fashion University alumna, I don't know why I was surprised to see that the Summit is pretty pricy, but I let out a little gasp anyway for dramatic effect.
