If you’ve never heard of the PANTONE, it’s not your fault. But if you’re a graphic artist or designer and haven’t heard of it, shame on you. PANTONE is the leader in color communication, known for its matching system. This year’s color, Marsala, couldn’t be any more rich and exciting.

Wash Day: one of my least favorite days of all time. Something about the process of cleansing the hair and scalp, that isn’t what I’d call a jolly good time. I do it because the results, those thick, soft and bouncy twists are well worth the effort. Cue in the new Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Collection.
On Friday, I rushed home, ready to take a post work nap, exhausted from the day. I had just gotten a really bad cold and wanted nothing more than to start over. As I pulled up to the driveway, I noticed the front door was wide open. Honestly, I didn’t think too much of it because it happened twice before due to the wind. But I called my mother anyway, inquiring as to who was forgetful enough to do it this time. Never in a million years did I expect to see what I saw next.
It’s that time of year again that everyone loves to hate. I don’t mind Valentine’s Day. The candy is always good and there’s always enough for everyone. What I don’t like about Valentine’s Day is the pressure that society attaches to it.
Two weeks ago, I started a new gig, 401 days since I left my last corporate position. Yes, I counted.
It feels good to be back in a corporate setting. Being among peers my age for the first time is certainly welcomed. I have two computer screens, which, the non-techie in me is amazed by. I’m doing much of what I’m skilled at, social media, and learning new techniques along the way.
I’m on a ballet high, y’all. Please, don’t kill my vibe. Friday night, I attended a preview of the Atlanta Ballet‘s newest production: Romeo et Juliette by Jean-Christophe Maillot. I’ve never sat in on a rehearsal before so I felt pretty privileged to be in the presence of so many amazing dancers. Based on what I saw, truly, this will be an event you do not want to miss.
I woke up this morning and I wasn’t a ballet dancer. Quelle horreur. It’s no secret that I love the arts in every capacity; I talk about it all. the. time. So today is no different. Except, there’s a giveaway to see the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater perform in Atlanta, Georgia. I reached out to some wonderful people and they agreed to give me a pair of tickets for one of you awesome readers to attend Alvin Ailey’s 2015 show here in Atlanta, Georgia at the Fox Theatre.
I took these shots in December, thinking I was going to write something about restarting for the New Year. That’s not really what I want to write about at all. I want to talk about winning.
The New Year always presents societal pressures to have your entire existence figured out by end of day one. What a daunting task. And yet, if we do not plan, we inevitably plan to fail. So I took a step in the direction of what some people believe will lead to success.
