Mirror Mirror on the Wall…

There’s nothing I dislike more than a liar. If you’re going to lie, don’t make it a lie that someone can instantly prove is a lie. I’m not saying that lies are okay if you’re not going to be caught, but I’m saying why would you do it in the first place if it’s weak? White lies about your friend gaining weight or if their baby is cute are fine. Saying I have purple hair, or that I’m a lawyer when I clearly don’t and am not, are not okay. Anyway, you’re probably wondering where I’m going with this and […]

Voice Message Mishap - A Story of My UnBRIElievable Life

2017 is already proving to just as or more unBRIElievable than 2016! About a month ago, my friend Brittany and I went to A-Town to watch our alma mater, JMU, play in the semifinals for the FCS National Championship. This is where I met Adam Stanton*. We exchanged numbers, texted a bit afterwards and seemed to be getting along. Or so I thought…but then he kept “forgetting” to text me back… well, I’m not stupid I could tell he wasn’t interested anymore. Since JMU won the semifinals A-Town was having another watch party for the championship game against Youngstown State and […]

Crossed Lines

Modern day version of crossed lines

Do you remember when people used telephones that connected to a wall? Well I do. Sometimes you’d be talking to your friend when all of a sudden a third random voice would also be talking because the lines got crossed! That problem seemed to be a thing of the past, or so I thought. The other night I was trying to FaceTime my friend Kirk. We went to school together in Barbados and he now lives in Canada. I FaceTimed him and he picked up only to tell me he was at the airport but he would call me back […]

PSA: Sea Turtles Are Dying.

There are some things that happen in this world that make me sick to my stomach and the abuse of animals is high on my list. I wrote about this topic a while ago but didn’t post it because I thought it was too formal for my blog. Now I don’t care, I just want to spread awareness and hope I can make even a small difference in this issue. Sea turtles are dying and we need to do something about it. A picture that recently went viral of two guys “surfing” on a sea turtle in Australia also compelled […]

My Indiana Adventure

The Airport Well, as expected, my trip to Indiana was definitely worthy of writing about. My life is always one ridiculous event after the other. I decided to go up for the weekend to see Hannah, one of my best friends and business partners in It Works!, and her daughter for her first birthday party. Things started to get crazy before I even got to the airport. It’s about 20 minutes away from my house so my mom picked me up at 6:20 A.M. to drive me there. I checked in online the night before so I only had to make it through […]

Hair’s The Thing About Donating

Hair Donation

I think I was about 7 years old when I donated my hair for the first time. I remember our friend and hair stylist, Chris, telling me about Locks of Love and wanting to help out other kids. So I did it, I chopped off my long, dirty blonde locks and ended up with a bob just below my earlobes. Here’s a picture of me about 7-8 months after I cut and donated my hair for the first time! Since then I’ve donated my hair 5 more times! That’s about once every three years. Now this post isn’t to brag […]

Tips for Shopping on a Budget

tips for shopping on a budget

I know it’s a stereotype that girls love to shop, but I’d say it’s a pretty accurate stereotype. I know not EVERY girl likes shopping but the majority do and we typically call those girls, “Shopaholics.” I thought I’d give some of my tips for shopping on a budget because haven’t you ever gone out with your friends and said you’re only going to spend “x” amount of money and then you end up spending “xyz”? Yep, that’s happened to me, especially when I’m using my credit card because you don’t actually see the money physically diminishing from your wallet. […]

TLC: Tinder Loving Care… or NOT.

Everyone loves to hear about Tinder dates (especially the bad ones). Well my friends, I believe this date could go down in the record books as Worst Date in the History of the World. By now I’m sure everyone has had some experience with Tinder. Either first hand or by watching your single friends swipe left or right in search of someone to match with. Everyone on Tinder has different goals. Some are looking for an actual relationship (this may be the minority), some are looking for a hook up with no strings attached, and every now and then you […]

Surprise!

My mom pulled it off. She planned a surprise that didn’t get ruined, no one spilled the beans, and I was genuinely surprised (in shock actually). I literally had NO IDEA. The funny thing is, SO MANY people (pretty much everyone on our It Works! Team, that’s 100+ people) knew about it! She had mentioned she ordered something for me for my birthday and that there was a delay and it hadn’t been delivered yet. I’m thinking she ordered something on Amazon or some other website.  Actually, to be honest, I thought it was more seasons of the Golden Girls […]
