#2 My favorite candle : Firewood by Henri Bendel 
#3 My favorite Body Creme: Nzuri Body Essentials Body Soufflé's  
#4 My ideal first date: Just kidding!

#1 Tom Ford Black Orchid Fragrance  

This fragrance makes you smell like a rich B%^&h.

It also makes others make the face above when they catch a whiff of you.

I love wearing this fragrance when I’m headed to an evening event or going out for a fun night out on the town.

#2 Henri Bendel (R.I.P) Firewood Candle 

This candle makes you want to pitch a tent, fly fish and roast some marshmallows all at the same time.

Camping reality!
Lighting a candle elevates your bubble bath experience. (Trust me!)

If you want this candle, you have to buy on Amazon.
Henri Bendel is sadly closing all stores!

#3 Nzuri Body Essentials Soufflés

This soufflé will have your skin softer than a pair of Ugg slippers. You will smell so good, that people will ask you all day long what you are wearing.

I use this after my morning bath.
I don’t even need to wear a fragrance in the morning, it smells that good. (Not a affiliate link!)

“Umm girl, the month is almost over.”

Yes, it is 1/22/2019! YES, I’m finally publishing my resolutions. I didn’t stress myself out about releasing my resolutions the first day of the year or even the first week of this year.


I know you have heard some version of this before, “There is never a perfect or ideal time to start, so with that in mind just start now.”

Which is why I’m a firm believer that you don’t need to start on January 1st. You don’t even need to wait for XYZ to finish before you start.

“On 1 January no check, no pause, no planetary escapement in the celestial clockwork will take place as our planet spins relentlessly around its sun. Its only importance is for the human mind.”

Chris McManus

Let’s face it guys + gals every year we get endless opportunities to restart, because every NEW YEAR is filled with mountains of excuses, bridges of doubt, rivers or fear and much more. So what if you have an awkward start or less than perfect start, KEEP GOING! Restart, when necessary.

No journey is perfect. So here is some advice …


You aren’t one of those folks with only the intention of checking off resolutions, instead be the person with intentions and action plans.

You pull up the directions when traveling to an unknown place, you research before you buy something and this should be no different.

Do your due diligence and research what you need to do.

You need to make sure when you write your list, that results and benefits of accomplishing the resolutions on that list are STRONG enough motivators!

WHY? Well honestly, you probably won’t stick to them if you don’t. If you don’t DEEPLY believe in the end result or feel that the benefit of reaching your goal will help you in the long run, you should seriously reevaluate your list. Don’t waste your time focusing on goals that don’t make sense. Don’t do what is popular. Do what is right for you. Your goals are just that, YOURS.

“Intentions are anticipations of the future, and people differ in the perceived costs, benefits, and consequences of possible actions.”

Chris McManus

If you are one of those people, who knows that it is vital for you to accomplish your resolution, yet still struggle, keep reading.


Don’t be afraid to outsource if you have no clue where to start or you struggle to adhere.


If you struggle with diet ➡️ Hire a meal prep company.
If you want to get a new job ➡️ Work with a resume writer and a recruiter.
If you want to save for retirement ➡️ Meet with a financial advisor.
If you want to run a marathon ➡️ Hire a running coach.

You get the drift!
