Back in February, I got a random email from WordPress about checking out a resource called Blogging University. I am glad that I read it and didn’t delete it. Blogging U. has several classes that bloggers can take to enhance your blogging experience. I took the Photo 101 course and the Commenting Bootcamp. What happens is once you sign up for a course you get email reminders of what to do. It’s April already and I’m just getting started with my March challenges. Here is the link to Blogging U. if you’re interested.
So today, I will be posting Day One of Photo 101 titled “Home”. I chose to these two pictures. The first picture is a corner in my living room. For those of you who follow me, you know I love color. Over the last holiday, I painted my living room blue and yellow. At home, I let the free-spirited part of me out. The second picture is part of the fence to my backyard.
As you can see, I literally live in color. I would love to know what home means to you!
I look forward to sharing more photos with you all!
Christmas is one of my most favorite times of the year. I love spending time with my family, watching Christmas movies and shows, putting up decorations, and many of the other holiday filled activities. This year, I was excited to be able to celebrate the holidays at work. We had an ugly sweater contest, bought and wrapped gifts for less fortunate families, decorated the laboratory, as well as several other activities. The one activity I would like to share with you guys is the ornaments I made at work. We transformed everyday laboratory items into ornaments for the Christmas tree. The two items used from the lab were a disposable transfer pipet and a petri dish. With the pipet, I made a reindeer using a few arts and crafts supplies, and painted a Christmas tree on the petri dish. I’ve posted pictures below to show you the finished products. As a precaution, I’m no Picasso with the paint brush!
I really love home decor and styling. I like how adding color and simple, statement furniture pieces can change the energy and give personality to your living space. I follow Bedroom Diary on instagram for some really great home style inspirations. Here are a few pics that I recently seen that are stunning.
Hello lovelies! Jessica and I went to Atlanta this past weekend to attend the annual World Natural Hair Show. It was a really exciting experience to see so many women rocking their natural hair in afros, twist outs, wash-n-gos, braids, and other styles. There were other vloggers and bloggers there.
I had the opportunity to meet one of my favorite YouTube vloggers Toni Daley (tonidaley.com.) I was super excited to meet her and support your business.
Toni and I
Here’s what I got from Toni:
Africa shaped earrings
Purple head wrap
Jessica got puzzle earrings
I also got some mugs from an artist called Twisted Cheri. She makes posters and drawings of African-American women. www.twistedcheri.com
Our really cute mugs
Here are one of the pics Cheri created
I also got a chance to support other business and I got a chance to stock up on some hair and skin care products.
I got three tubs of natural, unrefined shea butter for a really great price.
I got tons of samples.
This is black soap I use on my skin. One of my favorites.
