I can not believe that I am at the end of my pregnancy journey! I was told that it was going to go fast, but at the time 40 weeks sounded so far away. Well, here we are! I’m still feeling good, staying active, and eating clean.
My maternity photo session was definitely one of the highlights of my pregnancy! My photos were shot by Stephanie Richer of Stephanie Richer Photography. When Stephanie told me her vision for the shoot, I knew we were on the same page. We both envisioned a more high-end editorial shoot. The pictures were everything I anticipated and more.
Throughout my pregnancy I have worn clothes that are not only comfortable, but also breathable. I prefer longer tops with more of a loose fit. Majority of the time I wear leggings because of the versatility. I can wear them to the gym or out to dinner for two completely different looks.
I found the perfect dress to celebrate month six of my pregnancy journey! The brand is Pinkblush. What I love most about their line is the clothes are created to be worn before, during, and after pregnancy. This beautiful deep burgundy color is perfect for winter. The ruffle sleeves really adds detail and character.
As I've gotten older, I appreciate conversations with substance and more meaningful relationships. This made me question my extrovertedness (yep, made that word up). After reading Susan Cain's book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, I identified with outgoing introverts, also known as ambivert.
Wow! I can’t believe it’s been ONE year since I launched V41! They say, Time flies when you’re having fun. Creating my blog this past year has been so exciting and self-fulfilling. I’m not sure what the future holds as far as my blogging is concerned, but I only hope for continued success.
Today, I am celebrating me... It's my birthday!! I am beyond blessed to enter another chapter in my life. I feel like this day snuck up on me. I am typically eager to celebrate my birthday and just bask in the ambiance of celebrating me. This year felt a bit different.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Today is the day where guys make their ladies feel extra special and ladies make their man feel extra appreciated. To some it may be just another day, but to most today is a day of love.
Happy Sunday!! I feel like I have not done a fashion post in a while. The weather has been pretty chilly. When it's cold, I like to snuggle up on the couch and binge watch Impractical Jokers or find something interesting on Netflix.
Seven days postpartum! It’s amazing what a women’s body is capable of. I had a natural delivery and my son was 8.3 lbs! He was worth all 17 hours of labor. 👼🏽💙 #postpartumbody #newborn #newbornbaby #motherhood #momlife
I did my big chop in the Fall of 2014. I didn’t know what I was doing, what products I needed to use, what hairstyles would work, the maintenance and time I would need to put in... there was so much uncertainty. I slowly, became more familiar with my hair texture and porosity. I stopped putting heat on my hair weekly, I ate a clean balanced diet, I trimmed my ends regularly, I did low maintenance protective styles that would last several days. My hair started to respond positively and that translated into growth.
Unfortunately, there is no special pill or potion. I recommend taking time to really understand what your hair needs. This process is trial and error and not the same for any two people. ✨
Now, as a professional hairstylist, I understand hair growth on a more scientific level. I focus on healthy hair and scalp. 🍃🌱🍃 #naturalhair #naturalhairgoals #amazingnaturalhair #journey #growth #longblackhair #naturalchixs #naturalista #hairstylist #knoxvillestylist
