Ever since Daylight Savings Time, I've been able to see the sun rise and set more often. By the time I drop my children off at school and daycare, I see the sun's perfect shape and color. The beautiful orange and golden hues warms our faces, and our bodies. This look was inspired by the biggest star in the world, no I'm not talking about Beyonce', I'm talking about the sun.

With the time adjustment, its no secret that we all feel a bit more sluggish this time of year. Honestly speaking, I feel that as a fully functioning adult, I should be able to opt out of my hour being taken during the spring and summer months. I'm just saying, I'd prefer my hour overnight.

Hello March! It's such an exciting time to be alive! We've left the month of Black Excellence and have strutted into the month of Women's Excellence. The fact that I'm black and a woman is freaking awesome. I feel like I have a super power that no one else in the world has. I mean, I know I'm not the only black woman but I can say it's pretty awesome to be a black woman. Last month, I set absolutely no goals for myself and for that, I am ashamed.

If you feel like me, February flew by faster than the Roadrunner in Looney Tunes cartoon. Of course it would though, being the shortest month of the year. Even if we had 29 days this month, it still would've went by just a fast. I started this month out on a high! Naturally because of black history month. There are so many "Hidden Figures" that aren't recognized during the month of February so I used this month to get to know more historical figures in African-American histor
