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 […]

[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.

#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 […]

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

3 Quick Yoga Routines To De-Stress Your Day #SelfCareSunday

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

October is here! It’s officially spooky time ladies and gentlemen. This is my absolute favorite time of year. I’m in love with all aspects of the fall season and the wonderful holiday that is: HALLOWEEN! Part of me wishes that I was still young enough to get away with trick or treating because there’s something so […]

LIL MOVIE REVIEW: IT

I never considered myself to be afraid of clowns. But, the night after I saw “IT” I could not get the movie’s villain, the creepy clown Pennywise, out of my head. I thought: “Did the movie change me?” Pennywise is one creepy son of a bitch. Generations of children know that to be true, thanks […]
