The Weekender Series – Birthday Vibes, Podcast Launch & BTS

In addition to blog more I’ve introduced a new series titled ‘The Weekender’. I’ll include visuals of what I wore, views, location and food. I’ll compile images from both the weekday and weekend. It’s a vlog but written, titled, the weekender.

DISCLAIMER: This post takes trophy for the most visuals and most content for this series. Not the brief kind, nonetheless ENJOY!

Our arrival day to our staycation, Monday feels AND pizza for supper! We both had a very chilled out day and mainly focused on getting rest. We arrived later on in the day so our main goal was to get groceries for where we were staying at and just wining and dining once we got back.

24th full sun trips! Yes, you guessed it. I collected 24 on Tuesday and I remember thinking that as I get older I’d feel heavier but instead I feel the opposite. I feel lighter than I’ve ever been because wow, when you’re surrounded by genuine love, you float. I also posted a personal post on my overall feelings and what I’ve learned this past year so check it out [ Read Here : What I’ve Learned ]. So late on trend BUT we finally watched Malcom and Marie which J rated a 7/10 and in all honesty the movie lost me. I literally felt like I was part of the characters because boy, oh boy they kept going back and forth. I think I’m more of a storyline, plot twists kinda person so I’m not big on it. J prepared a yummy dinner for us and we just had a calm, birthday celebration which was great. Also, talk about late night hot wing cravings.

Wednesday was such a productive day for because I got some content done for both the blog and other additional projects that I’m busy with. So, my day was dedicated to that, but I got to squeeze in some time for a movie titled ‘I care a lot’ which was pretty interesting and very eye-opening. We binged on the series ‘Behind her eyes’ which if you haven’t watched it yet, what are you waiting for?! Talk about a storyline that is mind-blowing, and it really keeps you in tune and curious to what will happen next. I highly recommend you check it out.

RISE AND SHINE! Another content dedicated day. I can’t help but always feel so inspired and find myself in creative spaces whenever we in a different environment and the entire idea of going away and resting becomes such a blur for me because I just want to dive into these ideas. I also edited the content I had shot from the previous day and had to call it a day with some wine, of course. Also, my team (Manchester United) was playing so why not.

Working on something special

HAPPY FRIDAY & HAPPY PODCAST LAUNCH!!! I am so overwhelmed with the amount of creativity I have right now and I have been so fixated on having a podcast and I thought, ‘why not?’. Melanin Speaks Golden is finally up and running and I am so excited about it. If you enjoy listening to podcasts and just want to hear intimate and candid conversations about self-improvement and self-care the podcast is definitely a go! I’m currently still working on more content BUT there’s some episodes you can lend your ear to. It’s available on Apple podcasts, Google podcasts, Tunelin, Breaker, RadioPublic and more!

Also, you guys know Fridays are for self-care so I did a sheet mask and just chilled out meditating for the remaining afternoon which was so soothing. Donuts and wine for late night cravings anyone?

Welcome to the weekend! Today was such an important day for both J and I (mostly him because it was his first project after a while) and we were busy with a photoshoot for most of the day. I was so excited, grateful and glad that I could be part of this project and he gave me the honour of styling the shoot and it was AMAZING! We got these garments from a thrift shop and honestly they looked so good it doesn’t look thrifted. Both the looks and photographs have a VOGUE vibe to it which I honestly never had to experience before so this was fun from picking out the looks to engaging with everyone.

I’m so proud of J and how he has taken steps to venture out into his passion. It’s a beautiful thing to witness your partner become more than the greatness they already are.

Sabbath Day!!! Sundays are for taking time out and prepping for the week. We literally spent the day both editing our individual work, eating and just lazing around after.

So, from my last weekender series I made a commitment to share a quote or inspiring word that really sits on my heart and will be sharing that with you guys so you have some deep moments to yourself and may reconsider some stuff.

Don’t forget to remember that your voice matters!!!

May the new week bring you all the positive energies and opportunities you need to make your dreams come true.
