I'm just going to say it -- I'm an Etsy fiend. FIEND. I love supporting small artists/business, and I especially love getting custom stuff ordered. Today, however, I'm just going to focus on black owned Etsy shops I absolutely drool over. This one I almost don't even want to divulge it's so good. I kinda … Continue reading black owned businesses I obsess over
I've written about this before. I'm taking a creative nonfiction class, and this was a writing assignment for that. I recycled some bits and pieces from past posts, as you may notice. I figured I'd post anyway. Art by Cristen Craven Barnard Having been born in Mississippi, one might assume that my sense of belonging … Continue reading finding home, again
Since my neighborhood literally ran out of running water (our lines froze), my school workload has lessened somewhat. I've taken that time this Friday to do some things I enjoy for a change, and one of those things is browsing makeup sales. I am somewhat of a connoisseur, having to take myself from a rough … Continue reading my Sephora sale picks, February 2021

I will give you my opinion though, having loved and lost a lot -- both romantically and platonically -- in my short life. To put it simply, … Continue reading is it wrong to pursue your friend’s ex?
Just what’s been working for me lately! Wishful’s Honey Balm moisturizer and Youth to the People’s Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask. You can get them at Sephora and at their respective websites online. P.S. I’m aware I should learn to angle myself in a more flattering way.

Holy moly I'm 24! What?? That's hard for me to fathom. This is the age a younger me would have dreamed to be engaged. I would not have ever thought I'd be in undergrad still, but hey, I actually like myself these days...which is pretty cool. I'm lucky to go to bed proud of myself … Continue reading 12 things i’ve learned and 12 things i haven’t at 24
Artwork by Karl Wagner As someone who has been lucky enough to live outside the confines of this home state of mine, I know how Mississippi is perceived by a large part of the population. I mean one time in college I told a guy I lived in Mississippi and he said, "Oh, Mississippi, Tennessee?" … Continue reading why I live in Mississippi
I actually get a considerable number of questions about makeup/skincare/health in general, which is wild because I’m far from an expert about any of those. I do conduct a lot of research before I buy anything, and I do have eight years of experience trying to turn my face into a different looking face.
