I was having a real yellow moment when I visited Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta a couple weeks ago for a networking event. Hair, skin tone, dress, bag….all of it.
So naturally I became curious about the psychology and meaning of the color yellow. This is the quick version of what I found:
Yellow: Uplifting, happy, fun, hopeful, practical thinker, networker, the mind, intellect.
Whew chile, the alignment.
Traveled to Tennessee earlier this month with my family for my graduation. I was finally graduating with my master’s degree and I was super happy. Still am.
Since we got in a day early I decided the Discovery Park of America, in Union City, TN, would be an amazing outing for the day. I love the more natural theme parks. It was really cool though and my kids were all into it. There are dinosaurs, an outdoor play area, a rock exhibit, Native American artifacts, classic automobiles, actual trains, and so much that we didn’t get to see. I would recommend it if you’re in that area.
Side note: Yes, I cut my hair and dyed it blonde. It just had to go so that was that. Simple.
What are some other family friendly parks or attractions that you would recommend in the States?
Ya girl was on the East Coast this past week for Spring Break. My last Spring Break as a counseling student, might I add. Graduation creeping up too quick and I cannot wait.
So the fam and I traveled to Virginia Beach, Charlottesville, and Washington DC. I lived in Cville for 5 years so it was nice to get back to VA & DC. Threw this look together in Norfolk for dinner the night before we left for Atlanta.
I also happened to be standing next to an oasis, so there’s that. My top and bottoms are thrifted, and it even looks like someone sewed the pants by hand….a 1 of 1. I dig.
Who else made the most of their Spring Break?
How is life? I feel like I’ve been going through it but I’m still moving in the right direction so all is good. Focusing on gratitude, right?
When things get really chaotic or stressful, it’s important to check in with yourself and put that self-care/self-love on 100. Taking time to be mindful, breathing deeply, eating healthier, disengaging from interactions that don’t bring joy into my life, laughing…all of those things are so crucial for me.
What do you all do as self-care when things get tough?
Part of my self-care included going to an art show at Octane Saturday night with the homies. Mama needs her time too. 20 local artists showcased work. I love seeing art and being a part of an art community. Plus Bar Taco was next door….ya girl was plantained up and so happy. Had a mini photo shoot on the streets too. Tis life. I am not mad.
Vintage plaid blazer, leopard pants, a graphic tank, and creepers on my feet. Style.
If you want to comment on this look, the art showcase, or whatever, hit me in the comments below. Until next time.
It’s National School Counseling Week…celebrating all of the wonderful things that school counselors do. Shout out to all of my fellow school counselors. You guys really are amazing. I have been lucky enough to train under a lot of wonderful school counselors at this point and I’m excited to graduate in May and make this thing official.
Drop a 👋🏽 if you’re a counselor.
I love to give you guys new content, so here is a look that I created back in the Fall. This look is funky and a bit rocker in a completely black girl way. I cut this skirt a while ago to give it some interest. It’s fun. Sweatshirt is Queen Agenda, a brand that I love to support.
I hope you’re having a lovely week.
