Patiently waiting for this bipolar weather to turn to spring so my skin and hair can flourish again 😩.
"I'll start on Monday".
Who's guilty of saying this? My new diet, budget, ev.er.y.thing, always gets pushed to Monday. It used to make sense to me because the beginning of a new week felt like a fresh start. But honestly, everyday is a fresh start. Anytime you decide to pursue something new (or something old in a new way) is a "fresh start". So this week, instead of, "I'll start on Monday", let's say "Why not now?". 📸: @kaseywinderphoto
Happy happy Friday! What are you guys excited about this weekend? I'm looking forward to going to @rochesterlilacfestival and sleep!

Since the "IG aesthetic" (which you never got into anyway because whew has the tahmmm?) is allegedly over, let's post a selfie.
Happy (ish) Monday!
Question: would y'all be interested in some simple hair (styling and hair care) tutorials being posted on IG? Nothing crazy because ya girl is a LAZY natural and can really only do variations of a twist out 😂. LEMME KNOW.
I feel like my mother wore some version of this outfit in the 80s 😩 but that's not what we're here for. We're here to talk about @renttherunway and how I give them all of my moneys. I'm giving y'all a full review on the blog (#linkinbio) and a few tips for how to get the most from your subscription. Alphet/#ootd details will be there as well! www.jadorejoelle.com
Hi, my name is Marra and I'm a food blogger now! I kid, I kid. BUT I did have an awesome meal at @kindredfare. It's funny how we can forget to enjoy our own company when we're caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I had some quiet time with my thoughts while eating my delicious dinner, dessert, and #dranks and even meet a few people! I definitely recommend this spot for groups or a party of one. PS: get the steak with brussel sprouts. It will change your life. #spons

You guys! I realized it's been a WHOLE two months since I blogged 🤦🏾♀️ a mess. ✨✨✨✨But let's talk about something that's near and dear to my heart: shapewear. As in #Spanx, girdles, and bodysuits. I know we love ourselves as we are BUT sometimes we want to be extra snatched. I'm giving some shapewear tips on the blog now. Click on the link in my bio or head over to www.jadorejoelle.com for details!
Was gewd? I'm beck. 🤦🏾♀️ Why am I like this?
A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to share with the students of @dreamfhs about blogging as a person of color. Towards the end of our discussion, a student asked us where we find support. My answer? It has to start with me. Before I can ask anyone to believe in me, I have to believe in me. If I'm asking someone to invest in me, I HAVE to be doing the same. If I'm asking for prayer, I need to be praying for myself. Can I do it alone? Absolutely not. But it has to START with me.
So here's the thing: I'm really hard on myself. As a blogger, I follow quite a few awesome creators and while I'm often inspired by their work, I also find myself asking should I be doing this like them? Should I have that super clean white feed? Would I be more successful if I was married with kids? The list goes on. The fact is that's not me and that's where I am right now. So until then y'all are gonna get this messy feed with random captions and weird IG stories of stuff I think is funny 🤷🏾♀️
