On today's episode of Marra is only wearing one earring 😩 one of my goals this year was to stop making such huge goals. I was setting myself up for failure! Instead I'm writing down things I want to accomplish for the month and setting milestones for those goals every week. It's so much less stressful and I've already met some of my monthly goals! We're halfway through the first month of 2019, how are you working towards your goals?
Who allowed these bangs 😩 I knew how to do my hair exactly one and a half ways: ponytail and that uglass tucked under bun. I dress better now but this chick from '08 was kind of a bad ass. It would be cool if she popped back up every once in a while. #howharddidaginghituchallenge #tenyearchallenge
One of the biggest lessons I learned in 2018 is that I have to speak TF up and make it clear what I actually want. This goes for my job, friendships, relationships, goals, alladat. More #2018 life lessons are up on the blog as well as #ootd details! Click the link in my bio or go to www.jadorejoelle.com.
When you momentarily forget that you are the only brown person at your job and put a SINGLE piece of gold thread in your braids and now the "metal in your hair" is the topic of the first part of the morning meeting. 🤦🏾♀️ They're not ready for the box braids, I see. Do you guys have any corporate hair stories?
Looking at Monday like...
Who else thought today was Saturday? Maybe coffee will help. Probably not. 😩 (#ootd details tagged)
Y'all... I had this look planned okay? It was going to be everything. The location was perfect, the dress was perfect, the accessories were perfect. The shoot? Was less than perfect. My plans were shot to hell 🤷🏾♀️. I felt like it was a perfect ending to a year that didn't go anything like I had envisioned. 2018 put me in some uncomfortable places and it sucked but I think I'm better for it. So here's to 💩 that just doesn't work out the way we wanted it to. ✨✨✨✨✨ #happynewyear
This week I challenge all of us to take up all of our space. As captain of "Team Shrink Yourself", I know it's going to be uncomfortable for you and everyone around you. People aren't going to be used to you asserting yourself or walking into a room like you belong there. Do that 💩 anway. Happy almost New Year!
Did you know that you don't have have to wait until the first to go after what you want? Crazy, I know.
Anybody here have a language problem? I'm not talking about the naughty words. I'm talking about the little "harmless" words that make complaining easy and having a bad attitude almost inevitable. Today on the blog, I'm talking about how I stopped using one four letter word and how it changed my attitude. Click the link in my bio for #ootd deets and more! www.jadorejoelle.com
Merry ALMOST Christmas! Today I challenge everyone (including myself) to log off or spend significantly less time on social media. Enjoy your families or some quiet time alone or friends. Make memories. The internet machine will be here when you get back.
