After the amazing event I attended in DC this past Saturday, I headed up to Philadelphia, PA, to spend time with my family and my Babe. For those who don't know, I'm from a small suburb right outside of Southwest Phila. (literally a 7-10 min walk from where we used to live). All of my family is still in PA and DE, though I've lived in Maryland for the last 9-10 years (WAIT - time FLIES! Wow...)
Anyway -- I spent some time visiting my sister and new nephew (he is 2 months now!) and my Babe (Malik) for Father's day.
I had the honor of attending the Fearless & Fabulous brunch event hosted by High Heels High Goals (HHHG) in Washington, D.C., this past weekend. HHHG is a women's empowerment network created by Ronnessa Brown and Co-Founder Jennifer Lucy Tyler. They host events & calls/webinars throughout the year to share tips and experiences on entrepreneurship, inspiration (the company is faith-based and even holds Bible Studies 1-2xs per month), and more. Get more information on their site: High Heels High Goals and follow them on Instagram (@highheelshighgoals).

I went to see a natural hair stylist (Carmen at Velvet Waves in Ellicott City, if you're in Maryland - she's amazing and so knowledgeable) - and she gave me so many helpful tips. Here is what I've been doing that has been working for me:
