For My Wallflowers // How to Stand Out Without Showing Off Part II






Today is the day.  WALLFLOWER is now available for sale on Create Space and by the end of the week it will be available on Amazon.   

In case this is your first time hearing about it, the book is like a conversation between you and me about what it's like to be naturally quiet and still want to carve out your own space and make your mark in the world.  It's about the challenges -- speaking up for yourself, making yourself vulnerable and overcoming the fear of being judged.    It's about the rewards -- realizing the gifts that can be found in your solitude, embracing who you naturally are instead of rejecting it.  It's about finding confidence in being different.

Be Brave. Take Action. Feel Good. Get Featured.



In 2009, before I started my first blog, I sent my hair story to Curly Nikki just hoping she would read my email and maybe even post my story. She did and it was received well. We developed a relationship that has led to my work being featured in her book and my content being syndicated on her weekly column, Self-Concept Thursday. I didn't reach out expecting those things to happen. I just wanted to share and get involved.

Kenya // Soulful Beauty of the Week


"Do not be afraid...to roar, to be traditional, to be vulnerable, to be predictable or unpredictable or to be any of the things we are and are not supposed to be. Do not be afraid to change your mind, clothes, opinion, or hair and the next day change it all again. Do not be afraid, that is the only thing you must not be."



Brunch, Blogs and Books | Going from Blogger to Published Author




If you live in or around the DMV, I want to meet you!  I'll be speaking on my first panel at the Brunch, Blogs and Books event hosted by Twenties Unscripted.  You don't have to be a blogger to attend, of course.  I'm looking forward to networking and drinking mimosas with you. I hope it's warm enough for a sundress.  What do you think?  Wishful thinking?  See you there! xo

For My Wallflowers // How to Stand Out Without Showing Off (Part I)








If you've been following me for awhile, then you might remember this series from last year.  In honor of the upcoming release of my book of essays for quiet women, WALLFLOWER, I thought it would be a great time to revisit this topic.  The great thing about this advice is that it's not just for quiet women.  It's for classy, thoughtful women who want to carve out their own space without making a fuss.  It's for women who want to distinguish themselves based on their unique presence and have a lasting impact.
