Yo yo yo, it's a Fabulous Friday, am I right?! 💛 No? Maybe? Well, my Friday didn't start out so fabulous. I found out that my entire blog got DELETED 😭😱🤯 Can you say #BloggersWorstNightmare
? It's a total bummer and I have to start COMPLETELY from scratch. Of course, I always look at the silver lining: I got the new customer hosting discount, I get to revamp my blog's look, and I just get to start fresh with new ideas. So despite the hard work ahead, I'm excited for the new opportunity and I'm ready to tackle it, hence my pose in this picture! Have you guys ever had to start something completely from scratch? Drop some motivation for me down below. 👇🏾 💫
Seeing a pattern here...? BIG FAN of mid-length floral dresses. QUELLE SURPRISE I know. But they are so practical and wearable when teamed with work boots AND you can swish around like the flippin princess that you are. WIN WIN!
Good days start with coffee! 💖 Happy Friday!
Thanks for sharing with us @darleneemariee
Pitch your power. What are you good at? There are so many entrepreneurs and business owners who need the things that you are gifted at. Never doubt your gifts because you never know, someone may be looking for exactly what you have to offer! Earlier this week I pitched a company to assist them with their blog. Little did I know, they were looking for some freelance talent to support them in the content department! It was a match, and I am grateful for the paid test blog opportunity I am getting with them. Do your research and put yourself out there, the worst thing they can say is no!
In the black community mental disorders are looked down upon. If not looked down upon they are completely ignored or turned into something else. While doing some research recently I discovered that some traits that people deem as ‘socially awkward’ or ‘shyness’ are actually symptoms of anxiety. So perhaps when judging that cousin with the ‘attitude,’ or the aunt who is always ‘overly-emotional’ we should take a second to stop the judgment…because BLACK GIRLS HAVE ANXIETY, TOO!

Follow Friday goes out to this beautiful lady @the.blonde.blog
. Not only because we love her, but because we wanted to shine a spotlight on something that she does, that is so small... but so huge too !
Who else tags their when business’ / brands when posting on Instagram ? Everyone right ! Now who remembers to tag those same business’ on FB ? #Crickets #WeAreGuiltyToo
Although it’s up for debate which platform can help you gain more exposure - it’s pretty safe to say, the large majority of people are tagging the brands they use on Instagram, as opposed to on Facebook.
So with that being said, if you’re trying to get noticed by a brand - and you’re tagging yourself amongst a sea of other people whom are doing the same thing on the platform... it may be a bit harder to get noticed, as your post is being buried. But if you were to post it and tag them on FB where not as many people are tagging them, how much do you think your chances of being seen by them would be ? #ThinkAboutIt
, and swipe to see just what we mean! And then make sure to go give Zoe, the ol’ FB like, and IG follow #BloomAndTell
Can I just say how happy I am that it's friday? I'm very much looking forward to this weekend of NOTHING on my schedule, except for a @buffalobossbabes
meetup on Sunday. #buffalobossbabes
Couldn’t have asked for a better night...corn maze, hay ride, pumpkins, and most of all these wonderful people I am blessed to call my best friends. Thank you Jesus for knowing who I needed in my life. I am so thankful for each and every one of them💕

Throwback to grown out roots 🙄 but I live for this outfit 💖 I always consider selling my mini givenchy antigona but I could never part with her 🙈
Feeling empowered is something I believe we’ve all struggled with in the past and present. In my early teens, I always doubted my self worth and ability to do the simplest of things which affected my confidence and communication skills. 🤦🏽♀️ Later on in life, I decided that I was going to be that woman who takes pride in everything she does. 🙌🏽✨
An empowered woman doesn’t always get the feeling of empowerment from others… She looks within. She’s empowered by her fears, her intuition, her passions, her beliefs, her love for the world 🌍 and her future! ~ I’m excited to be working with @goldcollagen
on their first ever campaign... Encouraging women to feel more confident in their skin. Follow my journey 🌹💫 #MySkinDares #AD
Live for the moments you can’t put into words.. ✨
- Happy Friday Babes -
I was gonna take over the world this morning but I over slept.
You know that moment when you see a photo from a night that you thought you looked like hot shit and then realize you didn’t look as hot as you thought?
This was one of those photos that I’d never normally post. .
Because my immediate reaction was disappointment--that’s not how I looked in the mirror, after all. In the mirror, where I was perfectly poised and sucking it in-- I didn’t have a double chin or a soft stomach! What the hell! .
It kind of sparked the type of insecurities that makes me zoom in and analyze all the different parts of myself that I’ve been taught to hate, and today when I got this photo in my inbox was no different.
I immediately felt that sting of “Ew, gross” and then the disappointment that I looked differently than I did in my mind. .
Then, the #eatingdisorder
thoughts kicked into high gear, and started berating my brain with thoughts of “Maybe you need to start juicing? Maybe you should go on a cleanse? Maybe you should start cutting your calories in half and working out twice as much?”
The good news? Within about five minutes of feeling those feels, I remembered-- fuck that noise. I look fucking hot sporting my double chin, soft belly and big ass booty. .
Those thoughts that are telling me otherwise and that I should burn that red dress that I’ve only recently started to wear BECAUSE I’ve told my shitty body image thoughts to shove it? .
They can go fuck themselves. .
I am not my thoughts. .
My worth is not linked to the damaging beauty ideals sold to women all over the world.
I am not more or less valuable because of how I looked that night, hot or not.
I am not a bad person because I enjoy donuts and beer.
Happy Friday loves! Hope you do something for yourself this weekend <3

Trying to decide on what to get done on my nails tomorrow...(decisions decisions) feeling a bit of pink this week what do you’s think? Or should I go a bit bolder? 💅🏻💕
Who doesn’t like ice cream? My favourite flavour is chocolate- what’s yours?🍦
It has been one year since I started to have dedicated time to work every day on my business. 🌿
Before then, I had been doing the naptime hustle, which I know my entrepreneurial mamas can relate to. 🙌
I would just kinda do whatever work I possibly could in between playgroups, mealtime, cleaning up, and the million other things that went into each day with a small babe at home. 😂
It was a wonderful season, but I am also just so happy to be in this season. Where I have 'me' time to pour myself into my business which I'm crazy passionate about. It means all my buckets feel full, and I can give my kids a much happier, more patient and fun mama. ❤
Nothing is perfect, but I do feel so grateful for the balance we have been able to create. I have time to work on my business while they learn and play with friends, and we still have lots of time at home every day just doing us. That low key family time, where we aren't rushing or trying to do a zillion activities. I love it. 🙏
Next goal? Grow my businesses enough that my husband can reduce HIS work hours! Who knows what one year from now will look like!!🤞
I was 100% walking out of the path of a van at this point, but I felt like this was a bloody movie location it was so cute. We had fun in Newcastle! 💕
Was meant to be attending a @johnlewisandpartners
influencers fashion and beauty event last night, and as much as I love John Lewis and was excited to see their AW18 collections, I’m having the best week ever in New York! It’s our last full day today and a second 5th Avenue shop is a must 💸💃🏻
Hace ya más de un mes llevo utilizando única y exclusivamente este desodorante de @tartecosmetics
💜 el Clean Queen que es completamente natural y vegano. Una de las cosas que más me gusta es que es hipoalergénico (libre de alergias), mi piel es súper sensitiva así que me gusta utilizar productos que estoy segura no me ocasionarán ninguna reacción.
Además la razón número 1 por la que estoy utilizando solo este desodorante es porque es libre de 🚫 ALUMINIO, un ingrediente que contienen muchos otros desodorantes y que hace mucho daño, puede hasta ocasionar cancer de seno.
En mis Monthly Must Haves del mes de septiembre hablé sobre este producto, si quieres conocer más en detalle sobre el puedes visitar esa publicación, sin duda te servirá de mucha ayuda, sobretodo si has pensado ya en cambiar a los desodorantes naturales. A mi me encanta, y lo mejor es que no hace daño ni a mi ni a los animales, porque esta línea es libre de crueldad animal. ¿Han pensado utilizar desodorantes naturales? 💁🏻♀️

If you feel like you're constantly exhausted, unmotivated, and busy lately, this post is for you. 🙌
These past few weeks, my thesis-writing, academic works, job tasks, and blogger duties have piled on top of each other. I had found myself so pressured and stressed to the point that I feel guilty whenever I take time off for myself.
But here's what I learned:
What I just said 👆 -- that kind of "super busy" life -- isn't something I can control. What I can control, instead, is ME -- my response and how I choose to face those challenges.
Here's the thing I want you to reflect upon:
✨ We all have 24 hours a day, 168 hours a week. We have the same hours in a day as all the known people we admire -- CEOs of big, successful companies like Jack Ma of Alibaba, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Oprah Winfrey.
What are they doing right that we're probably missing?
✨ They're using their time wisely. They do things intentionally.
✨ They don't scroll and scroll and scroll in social media just for the sake of it.
✨ They don't talk gossip with their friends. Instead, they talk business, plans for the future.
✨ They prioritize what's needed to be done, instead of what's comfortable for them to do.
Above all, they're all still having fun. They take time for themselves and for their loved ones. Mark Zuckerberg still have time everyday to exercise. Oprah even meditates.
🔶 Now, I can keep on blaming my professors for being so insensitive in giving us SO MANY requirements or I can see it as a training ground for me to learn.
🔶 I can choose to procrastinate on my thesis or break it down to smaller tasks that I can do everyday.
🔶 I can choose to stop blogging because I think so many people are doing it already or I can stick to it because it's my passion and it makes me happy.
What a difference will it make to change our perspectives?
Indeed, it's all just a matter of CHOICE. What do you choose to do and to be?

Feels like forever since I posted a mirror selfie, but when the bathroom and the mirror are as nice as this one, how could I not?! In other news, I’m so happy it’s Friday! I’m going to try and cram loads into this weekend, starting with a visit to our local pumpkin patch. What do you have planned?
There is beauty in simplicity ♡
