It's hard to believe that there's only 6 weeks in the year left. So much is going on, has happened and will happen as 2014 arrives. I'm very blessed.

To bring you up to speed, about a month ago I became the style editor of CocoaFab where I write about, wait for it, style. LOL. It's honestly been amazing to write for the site because I'm such a fan and I create content revolved around fashion, beauty and celebrities. Like, my three favorite topics. The site was created by Angela Burt-Murray, the former editor-in-chief of ESSENCE magazine. In case you haven't already, be sure to check out my stories (and coming soon, webshow!) here.

This weekend, I got back in the studio (after seven years) and recorded a song! Not many people know I sing, but music literally is my favorite thing in this world. If I can sing it or dance to it, I love it. I have a few things up my sleeve, but even if this just becomes a passion project it'll be totally worth it. It just makes me so happy.

Singing and writing. Two things that no matter how busy I become, I can't get away from. A few years ago, that's all I was doing. I guess you can call this my second wind.
