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.

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 🤷🏾♀️
What do you mean it's Monday, AGAIN??? 😩😩😩
Happy Monday, Queens!
It's Friyayyyy! I've noticed that I have some new friends on here so I figured I'd introduce myself. A few "fun" (they're not really fun, more like small tidbits that are mildly interesting) facts about me:
1. 90s R&B is the only music I acknowledge.
2. I say I'm on the Keto diet but if you see me eating a plate of French Toast, mind ya business.
3. It is ACTUALLY against my religion to pay full price for anything. #everythinggoesonsale
4. I only play an extrovert on Social Media.
5. I am constantly thinking about my next meal.
6. Target and Wegmans are my safe spaces.
7. I say my blog is for fashion and personal style, but really it's a place for me to talk stuff out with myself.
Now tell me something about you! What are you up to this weekend?
If you find yourself a little sad today about the state of your singleness, understand that those are COMPLETELY valid feelings. But I also want to offer a gentle reminder:
Self love = love worth celebrating
Friendships that build you up = love worth celebrating
Relationships with non toxic family members = love worth celebrating
Love of cupcakes and tacos = love worth celebrating
Happy Valentine's Day and remember that you are the one ❤️
No reason. I just like these shots.
