Recently, there has been a lot of whispers of blogs coming back. I know that sounds weird considering that there are many of us that still regularly blog. However, IG and TikTok kind of put a damper on the number of blogs that regularly update their content. Recently, Grace of The Stripe shared a list of blogs that she still regularly reads. On her post, someone commented that her list wasn’t really diverse and she agreed. Her reasons was valid and one was very true for me, too; it’s getting hard to run across diverse and inclusive bloggers. A few weeks ago, I went looking for more black lifestyle bloggers that post fashion, beauty, and everything in between.
Of course, there are plenty on Instagram, Youtube, and TikTok. However, finding ones that regularly blog and share on their own site it hard.
Still, there are a few out in the blogsphere still blogging regularly. Keep reading to see a fabulous list of black bloggers that still post regularly and post quality content.
LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2023
Happy New Year! How has 2023 been treating you so far? Hopefully it has started off good for you. So far, so good for me! After this week, I will be back in the swing of things. Having 2 short work weeks/ long weekends throw me off. Still, it’s been good and full of optimism, which is good.
I had a great holiday season, which actually included a semi-white Christmas. I can’t recall the last time there was snow on the ground for Christmas in my city. The actual snow day was horrible, but the results were pretty. I guess you can I broke even.
Recently, I realized that my January Lust-Have List is mostly things I should’ve asked to get for Christmas, but didn’t. What an ultimate face in palm moment?! Still, here is the list of things that are currently at the top of my monthly wishlist.
LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2023
- Down Alternative Mattress Pad – I’m about one more year away from buying a new mattress. So, in the mean time, I think this mattress pad will make the bed feel a little more comfy and cozy.
- Crop Straight Leg Grey Denim – I’m on the hunt for a pair of cropped straight leg pair of denim like this pair. A perfect all year neutral pair of jeans.
- Bluetooth Projector – Every January, there is one thing I regret not asking for Christmas. This is year, I regret not asking for a projector,which will be perfect for bedroom.
- Black Quitled Top Handle Purse – I’m loving the srtuctured, but edgy look to this purse. Looks expensive, but it costs under $90.
- Liquid Blush in Love – I have yet to try anything from Rare Beauty, but I’ve heard and seen nothing but great results with their liquid blush. The color ‘Love’ looks liek the perfect flush of pink for me.
Reading was my go to hobby in my 20s. Unfortunately, most of them were either required reading for a class or Zane novels. If you aren’t aware of Zane novels, then you might want to get on that, but be prepared to “clutch your pearls”. Anyway, most of the books weren’t really motivating or prepared me for real life. It wasn’t until I was mad dashing into my 30s when I developed the desire to read books that made me think. The internet wasn’t has lush and developed as it now. So, there weren’t really any lists of what books to read based on your life.
Thankfully, it’s never too late to learn. However, in your 20s is when you’re really experimenting and pondering they path you want to take. So, I’m sharing books that I’ve read, but wish I read in my 20s. Peep the list and reasons below.
Although it might be hard to tell my the weather on some days; spring is here. If you’re like me, you’ve already started or finished your spring cleaning. However, when you hear “spring cleaning”, most people think of just their home, but that’s just the beginning. This is also the perfect time to spring clean digital life.
In the past, I’ve talked about digital detoxes and how to declutter your digital spaces. This time, I’m going to delve into updating and maintenance for your digital life. Keep reading to see have your digital devices and spaces just as clean as your living spaces.
I love journaling and it’s one of the best things I’ve added to my life. Not to mention, it’s one of my go-to remedies for self-care. Personally, I use journaling to mind dump things that could be blocking aspirations and happiness. We all have things that seep into our minds and distract us. When I started journaling a couple of years ago, I used to do it almost everyday and I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the hustle and bustle of everyday life made it hard to journal everyday. Well, I recently found an easy way to help me journal everyday; guided journals.
Actually, one of the reasons it was hard to journal everyday is because there were times when I didn’t know what to write. Who gets writers block when trying to journal? This girl, but this is no longer an issue thanks to guided journaling. Keep reading if you’re interested in finding out more about guided journals and their benefits.
