MARTHA’S VINEYARD – BLACK FOLK’S STYLE

Located just seven miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is a true summer getaway destination. To get to this affluent island actually takes some doing. (Yes, a ferry can be involved.) But once you land on this magical place, life is so peacefully grand. We started going there about three or four years […]

WHEN YOU KNOW YOU NEED A PERSONAL ASSISTANT

You’ve launched a new business or a fab side hustle, and you have a full-time job inside or outside of the home. How do you know when you need a personal assistant? If you’re hyperventilating while you’re fixing dinner because you have emails to answer that are related to filling orders, you need a personal […]

WHAT’S YOUR ADVENTURE M.O.?

When I was in my twenty’s and thirty’s, I wanted to go to a cowgirl camp! Yes, that’s right. I wanted to lasso something. I love riding horses and wanted to ride free on a horse like a Badass. Do you know that the only reason I never did it back then was because I […]

THROWING SHADE FABULOUSLY

I’ve never been good at throwing shade. Or it’s distant old school cousin “playing the dozen.” Technically, I’m more of a “tell it like it is to your face” kind of girl. But I do it gently. I do it softly. But I will tell you the truth. And that sometimes hurts way more than any […]

ARE HEADHUNTERS CALLING YOU?

If you’re working your butt off being the Diva you are, then YES, headhunters should be calling you. Because that means that you are marketable and visible. For the rest of you Divas not getting those calls, you’ve gotta get your hustle on and sizzle up your game. For most of you, getting in shape […]

GIRLS’ TRIP? RENT A PRIVATE HOME AND LET THE UNLIMITED SHRIEKING BEGIN!

Just because you’re no longer thirteen years old doesn’t mean you can’t have a grown-up sleep over party! BUT instead of going to your bestie’s house for a night of PJs and boy talk, you and your pinky-swearing girlfriends should rent a house! A nice one. Y’all know I’m the first one to reserve a […]

HOW TO START YOUR ART COLLECTION

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton I love art and how it feeds the soul…and how it allows ourselves to lose and find ourselves. I started small with my art collection and that one darling piece has given me so much life. It has survived […]

WHY I’LL SPEND $1,000 ON A PAIR OF SHOES

Do me a favor Diva. Look at your credit card statements from 2017. How much money did you spend on shoes for the entire year? Whether you’re a shoe junkie or were replacing heels thrown to a shoe graveyard, I’m guessing you spent at least $1000 on shoes and/or shoe repair. Many of you spent […]

EXPANDING YOUR CORPORATE VISIBILITY

Being a kick ass Diva day-to-day is fab, yes? But is it enough? If your team, your office, your department, or your nanny are the only people who know how great your work is, then being that kick ass Diva is NOT enough. As you knock out your goals and manage your team throughout the […]

ARE HIGH-END HEALTH CLUBS WORTH IT?

My weight is frequently on my mind and elsewhere on my body. I have a goal weight. I have a goal look. But sometimes my body and my brain just ain’t on the same page! I am not happy about this, you guys! SO, to trick myself into working out, I either have to be […]
