A Lifestyle and Beauty Blog for Black Women

Hello and welcome! My name is Debra and I’m a 9 to 5 corporate professional, blogger, and online content creator. This is my personal lifestyle and beauty blog! As a busy professional, I found that too often I wasn’t taking the time for self care. So, I decided to start a new blog to keep myself accountable and to encourage other black women to take better care of themselves.

Everyone is welcome here on the blog, but I will be focused on the style and beauty challenges faced by black women, such as finding the right natural hair care products, styling our hair for the workplace, finding stylish clothes that fit curvy figures, and finding the right skin care products and makeup skin tone matches.

Other self care challenges are deeper-rooted.

As black women, we often face discrimination, textures, and colorism from society and amongst our own community. We must find ways to love ourselves and appreciate our features even when we don’t fit conventional beauty standards. We must also find the right products and beauty professional for our uniquely textured hair. Lastly, we’re often busy working, going to school, or taking care of family obligations and we need to find the time, money, and energy to care for ourselves.

I know about these challenge all too well. I work full time in my corporate career in the tech industry. My hometown is Houston, Texas, and currently work and reside in Austin Texas. I spend time between both cities, so with working and traveling, I’m pretty busy! It can be hard to find the time for gym, to complete my skin care routines, and to eat nutritious foods while traveling. But, I’ve found that when I take care of myself, I feel better, and I show as a better colleague, family member, and friend.

If you’ve found yourself in a rut lately, it may be time to work more on yourself, both inside and out. You absolutely deserve to pamper yourself, to practice self care, and to work towards becoming the best version of yourself. Here on the blog, you’ll find tips on creating your ideal lifestyle, developing your beauty routines, and practicing healthy hair, skin, and nail care. I’ll also be sharing mindset tips to help you love how to authentically love and accept yourself.

If you’re ready to commit to personal growth and self-improvement, you’re in the right place! I look forward to you joining me on this journey.
