(New Video Post) When Your Help For Others Isn’t Working? #SelfLoveSaturday

Happy Self Love Saturday Friends!

Today’s video is inspired by a few experiences I had in late December/early January. I’m a natural helper and a “fixer”. I have a slight Olivia Pope complex and will gladly take over your problems in hopes of solving every single one. This is not right, it’s very unhealthy and is apart of my regular self sabotage of taking on others problems as if they are my own and feeling all of the pressure and stress along with it. Basically being one of those people who says, “I don’t like drama” but I’m all up in the mix. Taking on all of their bags, and getting caught up in the drama because now I’m in the position of “savior”. I’m learning that just because I like to help that doesn’t mean the kind of help I’m giving is useful or even needed.

Apart of Learning self care  means knowing when to admit that what you’re doing is not right, I can look past my own ego and say, though I want to help, what I can offer is not helping you because you’re not growing or learning but rather just becoming dependent on me. As a friend I want to help you and I want to remain sane so lets talk about the right options for giving you support. Check out my video below and let me know if you’ve been in a similar position.

(New Video Post) Self Love And Beyond – Event Recap #selflovesaturday


Happy Self Love Saturday!

Last Saturday (April 16th) I had a Self Love Tea Time, an intimate event with 20 ladies, centered around self love and an open and honest conversation about our fears, insecurities, past experiences, careers, friendships and everything else in between! We had cookies, cupcakes, sandwiches and most importantly TEA! This event was like a dream come true for me! I had envisioned it for so long and to see it come to life in this way, was just EVERYTHING! Big shout out to Essence Atkins for being my special guest, Baby Love Sweetery and Mama Auntie’s Vegan Desserts for providing us with their delicious treats and even bigger shoutout to all of the girls and their awesome energy for coming, speaking up and spreading love! I can’t wait to do the next one.

(New Video Post) Beauty Dare! Do Something That Scares You #SelfLoveSaturday

Happy Self Love Saturday!

In this video I discuss taking a leap in beauty by doing something that you’ve always wanted to do that scares you. I recently cut my hair and I’m learning how much people value hair, especially when you had long hair. Most of the responses I’ve gotten have been simply “why?” As if my hair will never grow back again lol. I cut my hair 1. Because I wanted to and 2. Because I no longer wanted to hold on to the fear that I’m only pretty with long hair or straight hair or curly hair or whatever other fears and insecurities I was putting onto myself. Beauty is all about the way you feel and I truly feel like there’s nothing on the outside that should make you feel more beautiful than you already do on the inside. I cut my hair to strengthen my own sense of beauty but having to push myself to rely on just ME and not my hair.

Whether it’s cutting your hair or changing your style whatever it is, try something that scares you! Test your own limits and rediscover what beauty is for you when you are no longer in your comfort zone.

Happy Self Love Saturday!

Guess what I have produced 100 Self Love Saturday Videos! Woop! I can’t believe it! When I started doing #SelfLoveSaturday it was simply because I was passionate about teaching the people around me about gaining confidence and freedom from my own personal experience of dealing with low self esteem, fear and anxiety and learning to control these feelings. I was so excited when you guys reacted so positively to the videos and it has now become apart of my brand!

To celebrate my 100th video on April 16th I’ll be having an intimate tea time event in Los Angeles discussing self love, career, relationship and everything else in between! I love Tea Time and I’m really excited to join you guys and have an in depth chat! Join me by purchasing tickets, seats are limited, link below.

(New Video Post) How To Gain and Lose Friendships #SelfLoveSaturday

FullSizeRender

Happy Self Love Saturday!

A lot of you had questions about friendships on my last video so I tried my best to cover everything from how to meet friends in your early 20’s, losing friends on your self love journey, and what to do when you need to cut off your friendships all in one video.

On my self love journey over the last few years, I’ve had a lot of change with my friendships. I’ve gained amazing friendships that have helped me to grow and become the woman that I am today and I’ve lost friends who were no longer on the same path as me. But all of it has been with a greater purpose and I always trust that I am around the right people at the right time. Check out my video below on what I have learned about gaining and losing friends.

(New Video Post) Don’t Make It Complicated – Be Honest #SelfLoveSaturday


Happy Self Love Saturday!

Today’s message is inspired by my upcoming series Beyond Complicated which drops this Wednesday March 9th on my youtube channel! Woop! In Beyond Complicated we explore the simple miscommunications that happen within relationships when we are not fully honest with our thoughts and intentions and needs. One of the most important things I’ve learned on my self love journey is just be honest, with my self and with others, especially anyone that I am in an intimate relationship with. It makes life a whole lot simpler when I’m honest with how I feel and everything that is on my heart is understood. Check out the video and be on the look out for Beyond Complicated!

More Speaking Engagements, More Events, More Panels #2016goals

12079724_924042384354991_7436057952523983354_n

I genuinely love putting together and hosting events. I also love giving a key note speaker speech, being apart of a panel and speaking directly to an audience on things that I’m passionate about like being a creative entrepreneur, seeing women of color represented properly in the media, self esteem for young girls and women and how to be your authentic self. Doing these things makes me happy.

For the last two years I’ve been very fortunate to be apart of some amazing panels and speak at some incredibly inspiring events, but one of my 2016 goals is to do even more of this type of work. I recently had to put together a reel for my agents and in collecting a few of the videos I realized just how much I love doing it. It’s so fulfilling and one of the perks of my business that I’m happy to give my time to. I’m currently working on a few events to host in LA and NYC and I’m finishing my book so that I can put together a tour and do more speaking engagements through out the year. This is a big dream for my brand and as well simply for “Andrea” the person who loves talking to people about what I’ve learned and experienced!
