All About The Scrub Life Turns 1// What I’ve learned So Far

Do you know what time it is? It’s celebration time! Can you believe it’s been a year since I’ve occupied space on the internet and can now call myself a blogger? ( I know right who can believe it). A lot has happened over the last year, some good and some not so good but I can say I have learned a lot being a part of the blogosphere.
As some of you know when I published my first blog post The Beginning… a year ago, I told you I had this idea for 2 years before I started. I had no clue what I was doing or getting myself into but I was prepared, now here I am a year later.
I had this plan of what I wanted to talk to about in this post, but a conversation I had recently with someone who wants to start blogging changed that idea.
Instead I’m going to talk about what I learned over the past year and give some tips on what you should consider if you plan on starting a blog, vlog, etc.

Year Ventiocho

This past Memorial day weekend I celebrated my 28th birthday (ya girl is getting oldddd) and let me tell you, it was one of the best times I’ve had in a while. My bestfriend came to visit me from Chicago so that was a plus, I was able to catch up and reconnect with some friends that I haven’t seen in months/years, so I basically spent the whole weekend celebrating with friends and family.Read More »

Embracing Your Uniqueness

“I’ve been gone for a minute, now I’m back with the jump off” I feel like it’s been an eternity since I’ve had a new Blog post and I’m sure you guys feel the same way, but you know they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. It’s the start of a new month and I’m back like I never left.
I have a valid reason for my slight absence, ya girl got a new job (Praise Jesus!). I got a job at the children’s hospital working in the pediatric ICU as a clinical tech and I absolutely love it! It’s my first time working with kids and it has been amazing.

The Year 2017

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great holiday season. This was my first time having to work and not be able to spend time with my family cyah happen again lol (means: I have no intentions on doing this again). We are a few days away from a new year so thought I’d do a year in review post. In the first half of the year I had already deemed 2017 to be trash simply because it started off bittersweet and things weren’t going as planned but I had to shake that negativity off real quick.

Before I continue to tell you about how my 2017 was, I want to express my sincerest gratitude to you all. I can’t thank you all enough for rocking with me these last six months. Thanks to each and everyone of you for taking the time out of your busy lives week after week to read, comment, and share my blog posts.

Are We Practicing What We Preach?

We’ve all seen the memes and the many posts on social media about protecting your energy or peace, but let’s be real how many of us are actually practicing what we’re preaching? It’s so easy to catch on to trends these days, everybody wanna be “woke” or “deep”. I too was one of those people who would tweet “I’m all about protecting my peace” but little did I know those were just words and there wasn’t any action to back up my claims. Let’s be real, how many of us truly know what it means to protect our peace and energy? It took me a while to fully understand and learn what it truly meant to protect my peace (still learning). I’ve had my moments where I know for a fact I was putting my negative energy onto others. I’ve had my moments of being negative Nancy and did some things to others I’m not proud of but thank God for growth. Read More »

AfroPunk Atlanta

Hey guys I know it hasn’t been 2 seconds since my Miami trip but your girl got the chance to attend Afropunk Atlanta last weekend(look at me, living life 2 weekends in a row lol). I’ve heard about Afropunk before but never attended so it was only right that once I heard there was one to be held in Atlanta, I just had to be there. For those not familiar with what Afropunk is, it is a festival that basically celebrates Black Excellence through art, film and music.

 Girls Trip: Miami Edition 

Ever felt like you’ve been constantly going and life is passing you by? Well that’s how I’ve been feeling recently, unfortunately.  I haven’t had a break since 2017 started to put that into perspective for you, we’re ten months into 2017. It’s so common for us to say we need a break but often times end up not taking one(life always gets the best of us). Anyways let me stop blabbing about my oh so busy life and talk about the break I finally got to take….
