Why It’s Not A Bad Thing To Just Feel “Okay”

I told a friend recently that it’s a weird time to be online. To be honest, this statement feels evergreen — when is it not a strange time to live your life publicly on the Internet? But recently, there’s been a push to be authentic (something I’ve written about several times) without being too authentic. No one wants to make the people around them uncomfortable, right?

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?!
