Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ If you’ve been hanging out with me here at Being Melody than you know that I’ve teamed up with Listerine to talk about how you can bring out the bold in your everyday life. This year one of my goals was to get out of my comfort zone in all areas of my life. I want to get into public speaking, I want to take my business further, and I wanted to start loving and accepting my body more. I’ve done well on the whole… View Post

Once You Stop Living You Start Aging

“When you stop living is when you stop aging.” Are you surprised as I am that I’m actually sorta consistent with my fashion post? My capsule wardrobe is kinda non-existent for the summer, but I’m making it work and being creative. Amongst all the talk about crucial issues on Twitter like Black Lives Matter and the conversation on deescalating interactions with the Police so that our African American men and women make it home, there was a light-hearted conversation about how people born in the 80’s were officially old.  I was born in the early 80’s and while I do… View Post

I chose to utilize a capsule wardrobe this year because I needed to add as much simplicity to my life this year as possible. While I’ve loved every bit of it, I really didn’t think through how much losing weight would affect my capsule wardrobes… View Post

Weight loss and Preparing for Something Greater.

This is not a sponsored post but only my genuine journey to win back control of my life. -Photo Credits: April Pershing Weight loss. It’s something I’ve talked about several times on this platform. Each year I try, make a little progress and then regress back to where I was. This time, I knew it was going to be different. It had to be different. I think the turning point for me was during the holidays when I realized that I couldn’t keep a watch on because it was just too tight. I honestly think I had a small anxiety… View Post

A Great pair of Jeans Always Completes my “Uniform”.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Levi’s® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. If you asked me to describe my style it could easily be done with two words, “Comfy Cute.” Don’t get me wrong I’ll throw on some pumps and slay an outfit in a heartbeat, but for the most part, I want to look good and feel good at the same time. I don’t have enough time to pay attention to trends or worry about what other people are wearing. I just want to wear comfortable things and look nice while doing… View Post

How a Pair of Levi’s® 711 Jeans gave me a Confidence Boost.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Levi’s® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Confidence. It’s something we all have though most of us seldom utilize it. Confidence is an attribute that, when employed, provides us with the faith and trust that we can do whatever we set in our mind. So many women fail to reach their true potential in all areas of life because they lack the one thing that could propel them to heights beyond their wildest dreams. Many people are surprised to hear me say that I wasn’t always confident in some… View Post

My Name is Melody, and I’m a Fauxtrovert

I’m sharing how I use #Listerine in my life as a part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™. All my closets friends will you tell you that I’m a fauxtrovert. Fauxtrovert (adj): the act of being a fake extrovert. (n): someone who is outgoing only when they have to be. I can’t help it. I’m a introvert trapped in the life of an extrovert, and while everyone is making plans to go out and have fun after work all I’m thinking of is how awesome my couch is going to feel while I read or catch up on missed TV… View Post
