Hello, 2018 Goals

Happy New Year, loverlies! I hope your holidays were awesome and you got everything you wanted for Christmas. Welcome to the brand new blog, Black Belle Magick!!! Let's talk about New Year's Resolutions and why I don't make them, how I came about the new name, and what's in store for 2018! (Well, what I have "planned").

Black Belle Magick? I follow a Facebook called Black Southern Belle, and one of their featured post was titled (and this is not exact wordage) something along the lines of "Florida Belle"... And I squeed so loud, to myself, of course. The previous title, Ebony Brewed Magick just didn't sit well with me. I liked it, but I didn't love it. I miss being in the South, and I love everything about being in the South. As I type this on a cold NYC day where the weather feels like 5 degree wind chill, I can't wait to feel 90 degree weather on my skin. With the name change will come brand new content, and I can't wait!

I used to make New Year's Resolution lists, and guess what? I would never fall through with them. I honestly can't even remember the last time I sat down and created a list at the end/beginning of the year of what I wanted to accomplish. They say it's important, that you need to see what you want to accomplish. I haven't done one of these since 2012, which you can find that post here.

  1. Buy a DSLR camera
  2. Buy an outfit from Target (or a couple)
  3. Go thrifting
  4. Move back to FL
  5. Get married
  6. Send my manuscript to a professional editor
  7. Self publish my manuscript
  8. Buy a mini-van
  9. Vacation the FL Panhandle
  10. Vacation Miami Beach
  11. Vacation Alabama
  12. Blog more frequently

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
