#WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe

Just like every other warm-blooded black millennial on social media, I too am in awe of Black Panther. Before I went to go see it at my local movie theater, I was a bit skeptical. The hype was getting to be overwhelming, and I’m a certified skeptic at heart. I’ve never been a superhero kind […]

WAKE UP, IT’S THE FIRST OF THE MONTH: FEBRUARY

In a lot of ways, February is one of my favorite months. First off, it’s Black History Month. Black history is my favorite kind of history and I always find out something new in February about my culture. Even though I’m knee-deep in the culture 25/8, I always need a little bit extra in my […]

[THE MASH-UP] WALE/SZA – THE WEEKEND REMIX [NEW MUSIC]

The sultry peanut-butter smooth beat of SZA’s side chick anthem The Weekend is so red-hot it can melt the ice of the recent snow storm. I’m not surprised that every singer/rapper/neighborhood scatter has uploaded their version of the tune on the internet. But Wale’s spoken word drenched rendition might be the best one of them all. Check […]

[BLOGMAS] LET’S TALK ABOUT IT – SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT (NETFLIX)

Hello beautiful people, I hope you’re having a stellar December and an awesome holiday season. We just had our first snowfall, so it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas over here 🙂 If you’re stuck in the house, you’re probably looking for something new to binge watch.

#niadiaries vol 4. – freelancing & “december’s resolutions” (blogmas edition)

I’m not good at gaging my accomplishments. Whenever I accomplish something I usually just head to the next thing on my to-do list. I don’t really give myself a second to enjoy what I’ve done. I usually just worry about the fact that I haven’t done the next thing. It’s a vicious cycle that never […]

WAKE UP, IT’S THE FIRST OF THE MONTH: DECEMBER

Yesterday, it was almost 70 degrees outside. In turn, my brain cannot fathom the fact that it is December 1st. It’s officially Christmas season and I can finally watch all my favorite disgustingly cheesy Christmas movies and consume way too much hot chocolate. You know, it’s all for the aesthetic anyway. There’s a lot of […]

LIL MUSIC REVIEW: EMINEM FEAT. BEYONCE – WALK ON WATER

Am I the only person that wasn’t exactly looking forward to Eminem’s comeback? I knew that it was coming since I witnessed Eminem’s public slaughter of President Trump during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards. I’ve never been the biggest Eminem fan, but I can truly respect the longevity of his career and the mastery […]

WAKE UP, IT’S THE FIRST OF THE MONTH: NOVEMBER

Hey beautiful people. It’s time we tiptoe out of the spooky season and get deep into Fall. I hope November is a time of renewal and peace. November’s always a chill time for me, and who doesn’t love Thanksgiving? Love, Nia Simone

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DRAKE feat. a lit drizzy playlist

What’s up beautiful people? I hope y’all are having a wonderful Tuesday. I just wanted to drop in and wish a Happy 31st Birthday to Drake a.k.a Drizzy a.k.a Aubrey Graham a.k.a. Champagne Papi a.k.a Wheelchair Jimmy a.k.a October’s Very Own. In honor of his 31st birthday, I’ve compiled a Spotify playlist of my 31 […]

3 THINGS I’VE LEARNED ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING FROM BEYONCE’S INSTAGRAM

In the business of social media marketing, there are few accounts that really inspire me to create. But, the living legend presently known as Beyoncé is IT, honey. Over the past couple months, Beyoncé’s been posting almost exclusively on Instagram and that has a lot to do with the potential of Instagram’s layout and the opportunity to […]
