Last week we covered the basics of tracking your budget (see DIY Personal Finance - Tracking Your Budget).  If you have credit cards, you can use the same Google Sheet that I referenced in that article (or create your own similar sheet) to track your credit card activi...

For many of us the scariest thing about breaking up is this fear that you won’t ever find better than what you’ve had before. We convince ourselves that our ex was as good as it gets and either try to rekindle things with them or quickly leap into another relationship...

If you are a woman with dark brown skin, consider yourself blessed with a beautiful complexion. Dark skin isn't in the least bit rare or exotic, but it is still precious. Beyonce even wrote a song about your skin, likening it to pearls, and saying it's the best thing i...

Everyone wants perfect skin. For some, this is something easily achieved by maintaining a simple, easily implementable skin care routine and simply having great genes. For others, obtaining great skin means going through a strict, extensive routine and always being vig...

So, I've recently been binge watching Chrissie videos on Youtube. And not simply because she is the owner of this fine publication, but for once, Youtube has gotten its' algorithm together by finally providing me with content I care about. The videos that resonated wit...

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of the great debate over organic produce vs. non-organic, or conventionally grown produce. Some believe there are no significant differences (or benefits) between organic and conventionally grown produce, while others are convinced that org...

I remember a time where I used to be embarrassed about the way I looked, more specifically, my dark-mahogany complexion, plump lips and kinky hair. Such is definitely not the case in the present day as I adamantly refuse any physical alterations that make me look like...

Growing up as a woman in the most culturally diverse country on the planet has given me the opportunity to be exposed to the different perspectives on femininity. I was also lucky enough to explore different cultures and ideals on what a woman’s role was in other socie...

After you have made a plan for your money, the next step is to track the plan.  I absolutely love using Google Sheets on my laptop to create my plan and the Sheets app (also by Google) to track my plan on a daily basis.  I love using Sheets because it’s free, and I can...

Wintertime, with its frigid temperatures, has a less than stellar reputation when it comes to its effects on the skin. This season's cold air causes the skin to dry out and become susceptible to irritations, like blisters and rashes. And for those already dealing with...

In order to level up, it is necessary to start by making changes from within, one of those changes being what we choose to put into our bodies. Before we can see ourselves flourish, there is one thing that needs to be put in order - our health. Mental wellness and phys...

So as of late, as in almost four months ago, I’ve made the change of having a minimalist wardrobe. For those of you who don’t know, a minimalist wardrobe is a closet in which you have a limited number of items, purposely. To be frank, this is a project I’ve technically...

Very recently, a popular YouTuber by the name of Shan-BOODY had a segment of hers featured on the show “The Real”, in which they spoke about how she helps women out on dates and even hold up cue-cards for assistance. This point was met by joking criticism of it “being...

Now that temperatures have dropped and the sky has been gray and stormy more often than not, at least for those of us living in places with colder climates, it can be difficult to constantly feel as though the sun might never show its face again.
