Of all my creative abilities and interests, writing is my most favorite way to express myself.
As a child, books sparked and fueled my imagination and curiosity. They taught me about the world through the different authors’ and characters’ vantage points and inspired me to write pieces of my own. I’ve been writing since a pencil was first placed into my hand and have filled pages of numerous journals with my inner most thoughts and adventures through life and blog posts with words of adventure, inspiration and encouragement.
You can find me on a host of platforms, shared below, sharing my words and I am always contributing my writing to publications that I respect and enjoy reading.
AGrlCanMAC is my women’s lifestyle & culture blog that includes topics about, but is not limited to, [natural] hair; beauty, books, health & fitness, self esteem, wellness and life to help elevate women and reaffirm their beauty, existence and significance.
I am the senior beauty editor of EXUDE Magazine. It is an online publication that speaks to young, urban professionals of color about topics including fashion, beauty, lifestyle and current events. I curate and write beauty pieces from skin care to makeup tips and DIY recipes and creatively direct the makeup for the editorial pieces. It’s an amazing experience working on this talented team of passionate individuals who I am proud to say are my also my friends.
During 2014, I was a contributing blogger for bondage lingerie brand named Bodybinds.
Bodybinds is a lifestyle lingerie brand for women of all ages, shapes, sizes and races who journey into discovering themselves, their bodies, their femininity and their sexuality. The blog portion of the site creates content that speaks to them and I talked to the spiritual elements of reveling in femininity and sexiness.
