Have a Snap Happy Holiday Weekend

If you guys caught any of my tweets from earlier this week, you'd know that I was in my hometown, Chicago. I was back in the Windy City to attend yet another Oprah's LifeClass taping.

I know, I know, I'm totally Oprah obsessed, but I'm really just trying to get tips on how to "live my best life ever!"

The show featured author Iyanla Vanzant and the topic was about having those tough talks with a loved one. The show hit close to home because who hasn't had a time in their lives when they were faced with the rather unpleasant task of having a hard conversation? I actually am facing that very scenario with a former close friend.

Whether we confront conflicts head-on or cower away in fear, we have all had those times when we just have to let it all out in order to move on and resolve the problem. But, whatever you do, don't ever try to resolve a problem via email or any social media platform. Far too often I see people airing their dirty laundry on social media when a conversation over the phone or better yet in person would be the obvious smarter choice. Oprah and Iyanla agree.



I used to dream of working at Harpo Studios when I lived in Chicago. 

That said, I'll be back next week with more beauty, style, and giveaways. In the meantime, please check me out on Instagram:
