Don’t Forget about Dad

Good morning! I can’t believe it’s mid-June but Father’s Day is coming up and well, don’t forget about Dad! I’ve always been a daddy’s girl and I can’t wait to spend time with my father on Father’s Day. From playing with my dad’s belt (as pictured above) to attending my father’s non-profit Inner City Youth Golfers, Inc. (ICYG) events, I am still my father’s little girl. What are you planning to do for the holiday?

Nordstrom has a great Father’s Day gift guide and some of the items are on sale. I came across some great Luigi Bormioli tumblers that your Dad can use for his favorite drink for only $30 as well as a great Brixton hat that is currently 40% off. Walmart also has some great gifts that include grills, exercise equipment and more. Check out some of the gifts below and enjoy the day!

Quarantine Life

So I hope this blog post finds you well. In the age of the coronavirus pandemic, we just have to be thankful for the little things. I think that’s what this year is trying to teach us. The project that I mentioned when I went down to Wynwood recently has been delayed due to the pandemic. And a lot of other things are up in the air. But that’s life right now. We can only take it one day at a time. 

Are you registered to vote? If not, you can register here and perhaps we can make some changes in the world. 

I’ve been holed up in West Palm Beach. Was supposed to be in New York today but had to postpone my trip. I’m actually really thankful to be in Florida. The weather has been beautiful. Anyway, have a good weekend and don’t forget to take care of yourself amidst everything going on.

Sincerely,

Self-Care during Stressful Times

So, a lot going on right now. It’s important during stressful times to take care of yourself even if it’s a really small thing that you do. Yesterday, I jogged in the park with my dog and it was an absolutely gorgeous day in Florida. It helped to unplug a bit and enjoy nature. So I thought making a list of things you can do to “self-care” during these times might be helpful.

  1. Take some time off from watching the news and other media
  2. Go jogging or walking in the nearest park
  3. If you’re creative, take some time to paint or sketch. You can do this with the whole family.
  4. Take a bubble bath
  5. Light a lovely aromatherapy candle. I really like those from Paddywax
  6. Cook or bake something new, this can also be a family activity
  7. Great time for game night in the house with your partner or family

What are some of the ways you’ve been able to cope with everything going on? 

Sincerely,

Still Rockin That Blue Lip

Hey y’all! So I’m still rocking that blue lip. I’ve been on the grind with a new fabulous project including my artwork. It’s been challenging keeping up with everything but I am super stoked. How have you been? Are you excited for the Met Gala tonight? Tonight’s theme is “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” Guess we’ll have to see how it is being interpreted.

Anyway, have an amazing week!

Sincerely,
