"BE EMPOWERED" Networking Event


My Style Oasis, Be Empowered Networking Event

Hello again! And happy Monday!

Looks like I'm on a roll here with my regular posting, so I'll keep going. Consistency is key! And I'm loving it!

Just this past weekend, I was catching up with my sister and friend, Seun Akinlotan, CEO of OnPoint Eventz and OnPoint Success, and the host of the Be Empowered Live Workshop & Networking Event that I attended in March. I was sharing with her how much I enjoyed the event, and she was sharing with me how she was already planning next year's event. And I realized I never got around to blogging about it!

Christmas In July

Christmas Party Outfit Inspiration, Natural Hair Inspiration

Every December since 2010, my hubby and I attend the Christmas party hosted by my hubby's employer.

For this past Christmas party, I had planned to make something to wear, but as it turned out, I didn't. Umm...I kinda ran out of time. Don't ask me how; it doesn't make sense to me either, especially since I had a whole year! Lol!

Flowers & Fingernails


Nail Art, Inspirational Post about Growth


“I’ve learned that I’m growing spiritually, even if I don’t feel like it. As long as I wake up and keep pressing into Christ, no matter how ‘boring’ or repetitious life can be… There’s growth and it’s greater than my feelings. Hang in there.”

Happy 4th! (Chic Updo)

4th of July Hairstyle, Natural Hair Inspiration


Happy 4th of July!

At about this time last year, I created this chic hairdo for the 4th of July holiday. I didn't go anywhere, but I had fun putting on makeup and taking selfies...lol! 

I posted a collage of the look on Instagram, and I even got featured on the Team Natural Instagram page. I just never go around to blogging about it! *face palm*

[There's a ton of stuff I have back-logged to blog about! I'm hoping to get to them soon!]

Anyway, if you want to try this hairstyle for this weekend festivities, see the 5 easy steps below.
