Have you seen 'The Incredible Jessica James' on Netflix yet? Don't worry, you're not the only one who's late on Netflix movies/series. Apparently the short film came out in 2017, but I just saw it for the first time. I always look for a good comedy when I am in the need for a spirit boost. I watched the trailer and it seemed pretty funny. The movie is categorized as a romantic comedy.

Spoiler ALERT: It wasn't very romanti...

As an African American woman I know what it feels like to have to switch personas. Talking to my peers is a lot different than talking to a customer at work or someone at a professional meeting.

As a mixed woman, I know how to switch personas instantaneously without subconsciously knowing. I grew up being around my white side of the family 90% of the time and my black side about 10%. I was raised in a single parent household wi...

Sitting at home watching The Quad on BET thinking, "Damn, I wish I would've went to an HBCU to pursue my degree". When I was in high school I had dreams to pursue my business degree at Clark Atlanta University. At the time my aunt lived in Atlanta, Georgia. I had never visted there before but just by the way she talked about her new home, I was sure I would love it.

Senior year came so quickly. I guess adults weren't lying when...

Unfortunately I don't have a fabulous outfit to share today. I'm at home in sweatpants, waiting for my sister and the food to get done, lol. This year is a little different than usual. Thanksgiving is very small this year. Usually I go to my aunts and spend the holiday with all of my extended family on both my mom and dad's side. This year my mom is cooking a small dinner for me and my sisters. Which is perfectly okay with me....

Excited to welcome Fierce & Flawed merchandise to the site! 

This is something that I have been working on for a while and it is really, overwhelmingly, exciting to finally launch. 

I actually never had intentions of creating merchandise with my blog logo/name on it. Once my logo was finished I fell in love with it right away. I showed all of my friends and family. In doing so, I was given the idea by a friend of mine who felt l...

Hey everyone! I'd like to welcome you to Aura Boutique. After a lot of hard work, we finally opened our doors on May 5th. For those of you who haven't visited the store yet, here is a mini walk through of the finished interior design. 

When you first walk in, you will fall in love with our MPLS swimsuits and jean shorts. To the left our racks are full of denim and blush tones. My favorite part of the store is the cash wrap and...

Hey guys, you're probably wondering, where have I been? Honestly, I've been in a slight creative rut for the past three weeks. When I finally have more time to spend blogging I end up not knowing what to even blog about. 

If you follow me on social media, some of you may know I quit my 9-5 desk job a couple of weeks ago and am now transitioning into my new job. Aura boutique will be opening soon in Uptown Minneapolis and I am p...

I've been making it a point to check out more local shops lately. Last week I visited a local consignment store called "I Like You". I actually found the shop on Pinterest by a photograph of their really dope wall.

All of their items are locally and/or independently made by artists in your own neighborhood. Most of the profits go to the actual creator of the product. I found everything from organically made maple syrup, matte l...

For a while I have been trying to force things into being successful overnight. From my relationship, to my blog, to my fitness goals. I've tried 1000 workarounds to try and reach my vision of success faster. Trying all of these fad diets, stressing over what to post to attract more readers, and expecting the differences within my relationship to be fixed overnight; none of it brought success. If anything it was a waste of tim...
