Hi Everyone! I don’t even know where to begin but today is April 6th, the day the first episode of my talk show premieres! I’m so excited to share this project with all of you. It has been a long time coming and I can’t wait for you all to see it.
How it began:
I have always loved talking to people and listening to their story/struggle/and what motivated them to do what they love to do. The people that I’m surrounded by every day have some of the most incredible stories and I was inspired to share them with you. You see these individuals on your tv screen/social media/etc. but who are they really? I hope my show helps you to get to know the people you look up too or get inspired/motivated by someone you hadn’t heard of before. I have put countless hours into making this show everything I have envisioned in my head and it’s been fun to see it really come to life.
To the People Involved:
I just wanted to express my sincerest gratitude to everyone that has helped make this show happen. Your encouragement and advice hasn’t gone unnoticed. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in my little idea and helping me to make it grow into something incredible.
*New episodes every FRIDAY*
1. Coconut Oil
I can’t say enough good things about coconut oil! I’ve been doing overnight hair masks with it twice a week and my hair is longer/stronger than it’s ever been before.
2. No Heat
I know it’s challenging but heat damages hair and causes it to break off. I was straightening my hair 2-3 times a week and noticed it really took a toll on my hair. When I stopped straightening so frequently I noticed my hair became healthier/longer/stronger.
3. Argan Oil
I absolutely love argan oil! It makes my hair softer and stronger. I apply it to damp hair after I shower to help comb out tangles.
I started taking biotin every day and I have seen a big difference in how fast my hair is growing. I’ve heard mixed reviews about biotin but I can definitely see it working!
If there are any tips I have left out leave them in the comments section below! Hope this helps!

Perfect skin? Yeah right! IMPOSSIBLE! Think again….
I wish I could say I was one of those people that has never had a pimple in their life but unfortunately …I’m not. I thought acne stopped after the teenage years but here I am at 23 still struggling with break outs. My skin isn’t perfect by any means but I’ve found ways to help prevent acne! Hope this helps and feel free to leave any tips or tricks that I didn’t mention in the comments below!
1. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
This was actually recommended to me by my dermatologist which was amazing because it’s only $6 and can be found at any drug store! I cleanse my face with this in the morning and at night. Cetaphil is great because it doesn’t have any added perfumes that might make you break out. It also doesn’t contain any ingredients that will dry you out. It’s super gentle and great for the skin.
2. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
The Cetaphil moisturizing lotion was also recommended by my dermatologist. It’s great to hydrate your skin after cleansing and doesn’t leave the skin greasy or oily. It is hypoallergenic and also fragrance free!
3. Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation
After cleansing and moisturizing I apply my Clinique Acne Solutions foundation. I cannot say enough good things about this product! I love to try new foundations but always end up breaking out. There is no other foundation I would recommend if you have sensitive skin or are prone to acne.
I am not the biggest fan of water. It’s always so hard for me to even finish a whole water bottle in a day but when I started drinking 64oz every day it did wonders for my skin! Water helps to flush toxins out of your body and is great for rejuvenating your skin. Try to drink 64oz every day and I promise you will see a difference not only in your skin but also in your energy level!
5. Eat Healthy
I cut out dairy, eggs, and processed sugars. When I did this I saw a huge difference in my skin. If I want to sweeten food or a smoothie I will usually use a natural sweetener (banana, honey, or agave nectar). This also helped my energy levels and just made me feel better overall!
Hope these tips helped! Let me know your thoughts! Xo

Justin Timberlake just dropped a sexy futuristic single called Filthy and the feelings are mixed. I am a huge JT fan don’t get me wrong. I think this might be one of those songs that will take a little time to grow on me. I will say by the end of the music video I did find myself wanting to dance. Definitely a slightly different vibe than I had anticipated. Since the album is titled Man of the Woods and Timberlake grew up in Tennessee the rumor was that the single was going to be a bit more folky. The song definitely embodies techno elements and is far from folk.
The music video directed by Mark Romanek takes place at a Pan-Asian Deep Learning Conference in the year 2028. Romanek also directed Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling”, Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”, Jay-Z’z “99 Problems”, and music videos for many other A listers including Queen B. This was definitely a different visual take on the single that incorporated a futuristic feel. Timberlake is dressed similarly to that of Steve Jobs and he appears to be at a tech conference where he is presenting his new technology to a crowd of individuals. The robot syncs with his movement as he dances and sings throughout the video. There is a lot of dance influence including the classic Michael Jackson moonwalk. As a dancer I very much enjoyed this aspect of the video.
I didn’t hate the video or the song I just think it will take a little time to grow on me just like Taylor Swift’s album Reputation. What do you think of the new Timberlake single? Comment down below 🙂

With each new year comes new goals. We all start out with a rejuvenated motivation. It’s like hitting the reset button for a moment. As the weeks pass we all tend to fall back into our old habits. Here are some ways to keep yourself motivated each and every day.
1. Goal Board
Goal boards are the most amazing way to set goals and check them off once you accomplish them. Make sure you include long term and short term goals. These boards are very easy to make yourself and are fun to DIY!
2. Give Yourself Rewards
When you achieve your goals don’t forget to reward yourself! Accomplishing a goal is a big deal. You deserve to be rewarded. Treat yourself to a nice dinner, massage, or a day at the beach!
3. Goal Buddy
Set goals with a friend so you can motivate each other. You can stay on top of each other whenever you feel like giving up or slacking off. Encourage one another to be the best you can be!
Once you incorporate a goal into a routine it can become easier to accomplish. When you wake up early and go to the gym every day it becomes habit. This will help you long term even if it’s challenging at first!
Find someone you look up too. Listen to their story and how they achieved the things you hope to achieve. Even if you don’t know them personally they can still inspire you to keep striving for greatness!
