I had the pleasure of interviewing my friend and beautiful human Ro Lamb about his perspectives on marriage, toxic masculinity, and what he’d say to trees if he could understand them. Ro is an author and poet whose thoughts and ideas always intrigue me and go beyond status quo. He’s an avid reader who can […]
Can A White Girl Wear That?
“Can a white girl wear that?” She asked me after complimenting the style of my Ankara head wrap. She was one of my favorite white girls. I just liked her.

Where Is The Millennial Mom in Film & Television?
Ten years ago, the image of the young mom was that of the stay at home mom who caters solely to her household and children; or the mom who spent six weeks recovering from the war of childbirth before returning to work, spending hours of her day traveling to the bathroom to pump. These days, […]

There is something beautiful about a person who is willing to be completely authentic to their hearts desires; especially when those desires go against popular rhetoric and design. The other day, as I sat in Tin Lizzy’s stuffing my face with this Sante Fe quesadilla, I watched a women introduce herself as Megan. She wore […]
Why The Truth Fails Us.
Truth. Often daunting. Seldom accepted. Frequently offensive. It can be the cause of fights, breakups and misunderstanding among loved ones and often fails us when met with judgement or reprimand. Our negative responses to truth can cause the truth teller to withdraw and refrain from sharing in the future. This leads to deceit. Lies. Hurt. […]
Who Has the Answer? A Piece About My Fear for My Black Men.
I’ve always loved black men. The way they walk, their style, the culture they represent, and the beauty that reflects in their different hue’s of brown. I’ve always believed in them. I believed that they were more intellectual than society wanted to portray and that their creativity and potential for success far outweighed the presumption […]
