#SeyiSpeaks: Why I Cut My Hair

Welp, I finally did it. Some call it The Big Chop, I call it the act of letting go. While the act of cutting my hair was quite spontaneous, it’s something I’ve been mentally fiddling my thumbs over for the past year and some change. When my mom was first diagnosed with cancer, and we found…

#SeyiSpeaks: Relationships

Alright y’all. I am touching on a topic that I have rarely ever talked about…like ever. RELATIONSHIPS! More specifically, intimate relationships. I was inspired by the always beautiful Victoria Sanders of Vic Styles to share this piece of my life because it may just resonate with some of you. I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN A RELATIONSHIP…

IFIT 101: How to Build a Media Kit

From Social Media to Social Impact

I have had writer’s block for the past few days trying to write this post. I had so many ideas, but as I began to write them, none, and I mean none (I wrote like 3 different posts y’all) resonated with me. After looking at them, I didn’t feel connected to what I was…
