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.
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.
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.
I spent this past weekend attempting to get my life together and prepared for 2018. I did some deep cleaning, light organize, and had an abundant amount of self-care. One of the self-care things I did was engulf myself in reading articles and books related to some of my goals for 2018. Reading is a great way to help clear your mind of mental fluff and get your priorities in check. So, I’ve gathered a list of books to read to help you flourish in 2018.
If your interested in some awesome and aspiring reads to get you together this year, keep reading for my suggestions.
