2014 at a Glance!

I’m a firm believer that the best way to bring in the New Year is not just by setting goals for the future, but reflecting on and celebrating your past success. This year was full of firsts for me: personally and professionally. Looking back I am reminded that things always turn out well and that there’s no need to carry fear or doubt into 2015. Check out my year at a glance!


Looking at my successes certainly doesn’t mean that there weren’t hardships over this year; I’m just careful to not fuel the fire that could destroy my excitement for 2015. More to come on my plans and preparations for the new year so stay tuned!



Still Here!

I took a brief hiatus in the wake of the recent protests against court rulings in favor of Darren Wilson (police officer who shot and killed unarmed Michael Brown) and Daniel Pantaleo (police officer who choked and suffocated unarmed Eric Garner). Honestly, it had been very hard to write about my personal interests when Black and Brown communities have much bigger issues to tackle – life or death issues. Until now, any topic that didn’t shed light on racial disparities seemed too trivial to highlight. But, I have since realized that these are the times when every person has the responsibility to work even harder to share a positive, uplifting word. Whatever your gift is to the world, this is the time to share it. These last few weeks have helped me refocus my purpose in the lives of others and has motivated me to keep going. There are so many odds stacked against minorities that we need twice as much reassurance that we deserve to experience lives that are just as fruitful as even the most privileged.

While I do tend to share more information about careers and personal goals, overall, Sucsass is about not taking “no” for an answer. It is about defining and demanding only the best possible treatment. This blog is about taking what is owed to you and not feeling any regret. Sucsass is back and here to stay!


A Winter Love Triangle

imageI love my fiancé dearly, but I spent the other night with Frank & Jason and I am forever changed!! I have eczema so without the right regimen, weather changes can be brutal. And while I’ve used these two products individually, using them together was magical.

The bag contains an exfoliation coffee scrub called Frank and the bottle is of Jason’s vitamin E skin oil. Frank is made with sweet almond oil, orange essence, vitamins and minerals and targets dry skin, stretch marks, cellulite, eczema, psoriasis, varicose veins, acne and scarring. Jāsön is made with pure vitamin E plus 5 essential oils (almond, apricot, avocado, sunflower, and wheat germ).

No words could do this shower experience justice; just purchase if at all possible.
