Watching – Reality TV! I’m watching the Real Housewives franchise (whichever one is on Bravo). Our bike safety video Donda’s House made with Experimental Station’s Blackstone Bicycle Works. On Sundays I tune in to Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday.
Listening to… SZA’s new album CTRL. My favorite track on the album is “Doves in the Wind” featuring Kendrick Lamar. I’m also feeling “Drew Barrymore.” I’m also listening to Kendrick’s Album. “DNA” is my favorite song to work out to, especially when I need to run. The album for the most part is super aggressive!
Shopping… I haven’t been shopping much lately! I was on this sunglasses kick for a while. I purchased frames from @melitacollection after receiving a gifted pair as a thank you for being a panelist. My brow lady also sales frames & I picked up a couple from her. Here are my favorite shades:
Wearing… lots of Victoria Secret PINK when I’m not working & cute dresses & two piece sets when I am working. I’ve been working with my stylist Chiquita Carey for about 2 years now, and she keeps me looking as good as I feel on the inside. For the first time in my life I love everything in my closet & I know what works for me!
Loving... summer! I’m usually not a fan of extreme weather but I’ve been very intentional about having & enjoying some downtime! Whether going out to eat & out for drinks with my friends, taking long drives & getting lost with my husband & taking advantage of being a tourist in Chicago, this summer has been amazing. I’ve also had a chance to check out two new festivals for the first time. My husband headlined the Chicago Blues Festival, and I had a chance to check out Gary Clark Jr. for the first time. I also had a chance to check out the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. We were able to check out DJ Jazzy Jeff, The Weeknd and Chance The Rapper while there.
Looking Forward To spending my hubby’s birthday in Colombia, South America! I love to travel & I’m excited about heading to South America for the first time. Travel is one of my favorite things to do, traveling WITH my husband is icing on the cake!
Planning – I’m playing around with a MAMBI Happy Planner. It’s “scrapbooking light” for me since I haven’t made time to Scrapbook lately. Che & I are also working on a massive new idea that I will be able to talk about soon. I’m very excited about it, because it is unlike anything we’ve ever done before. I’ll share more details as soon as I can.
Thinking About – the next 10 years a lot. Che & I have some major goals & milestones we’re aiming for collectively & individually. I’m also reading John C. Maxwell’s The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. John C. Maxwell is one of my favorite business writers and this book just like the others does not disappoint!
Eating – super healthy! One of my girls & I are attempting to lose major weight. The nutrition part of our diet includes smaller mini meals, very little sugar, no fried foods & lots of water. We’re a week into it & I have my second weigh in & measurement this week! I’ve also fallen in love with cucumber & lemon water! Happy to report that I’ve lost major inches in all of my target areas, so much so that a pair of pants I just bought a few weeks ago are now too big and they are baggy! Go me!
