When You’re Black & Proud With A White Partner, Things Get Complicated

HAPPY WEDNESDAY! I’m normally not excited when we’re still so far from the weekend + I’m exhausted (caffeine for days, y’all) but this is the first post of my #WeddingWednesday series, and I’m pumped. I talk about marriage all the time, but I haven’t spent a ton of time talking about our actual wedding. It was featured on A Practical Wedding, and that’s probably the only time I’ve written about in-depth. But I polled my followers on my Instagram stories, and the verdict was that you guys want to hear more about wedding planning, so here we go!

Memorial Day Sales You Don’t Want To Miss

Hi, loves! I’ve had the busiest weekend ever — yesterday was my sisters’ birthday, so we spent the night at Universal Studios! They turned 21, and it was so much fun celebrating them. I seriously can’t believe they’ve grown up so much! I also had an interview with Discovery ID for a true crime show releasing next year, and I can’t wait to share it with y’all once I have more info. Lastly, Vagner’s best friend is getting married this weekend, so we’ll be partying all weekend long. Of course, Memorial Day means that it’s a holiday weekend, so there are a ton of sales you don’t want to miss. Here are some of my favorites.

How To Pose With Flowers Without Feeling Ridiculous

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that I love taking pictures of flowers. I’m not great at taking care of flowers, which is a bit unfortunate, but so it goes. My friends make jokes that I’ll end up doing the same thing with my future kid (using him or her as a photo prop). NOT FUNNY, guys.

Anyway, I really love fresh bouquets. They’ve always cheered me up, and it’s a perfect way to make any room of the house feel brighter and more welcoming. But once you’ve spent the money on a bouquet, you might as well use it for some photos, right?! 

Why Aren’t Instagram Comments Chronological Anymore? Here’s What You Need To Know

I’ve been on Instagram for eight years, and the only thing that’s guaranteed about the platform is that you never know what’s coming. Remember when they introduced Instagram stories and we all thought Snapchat was toast? Or when we were finally able to use pictures that weren’t square? It’s been an exciting journey, but new changes aren’t always exactly welcome. I was scrolling through Instagram a few weeks ago and it hit me: My comment feed looked mega weird. Instead of seeing comments from old to new, I was seeing popular comments up top, even on my own profile.
