Bold Looks for a Bold Life

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™) It’s back to school time and hopefully, this will be my VERY LAST semester in school! Each year I like to try something new to start the school year off fresh. Last year I chopped my hair completely off in an undercut style which was probably one of the boldest things I’d ever did with my hair. Some people loved it, my grandmother hated it, but all in all, it was a pretty awesome style that proved to be a lot more maintenance than I… View Post

My Favorite Things About Fall

This post is sponsored by Listerine in collaboration with SocialStars. All opinions are my own. #bringouthebold Fall has to be my absolute most favorite time of the year. It’s like the “baby bear” of the seasons when things are just right. Admittedly I may be a bit jaded since I work in a place where we’re required to wear pants and closed toed shoe year round, but there is something about Fall that is almost magical.  To me, Fall is reminiscent of rebirth. Some may argue and say that’s spring but to me, Fall is when things actually start to happen.… View Post

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.

How You Can Take Part in the Period Project

I’m giving you deets on the how you can be a part of the Period Project in collaboration with U By Kotex. While this post is sponsored it’s a cause I’m passionate about. Thank you for letting me share brands that I care about with you. #periodproject Periods. Aunt Flo. The Curse of Eve. That Time of the Month. These are just some of the names that women use to describe their menstrual cycles. Many women look at having a menstrual cycle as a right of passage into the world of womanhood. I mean it’s kind of a big deal.… View Post

Why I’m Choosing a Staycation.

This post is part of a Sponsored series with #Listerine and SocialStars #bringoutthebold  It seems as if everyone around me is preparing to go on epic vacations. I haven’t been on a proper vacation in forever so I’ve become accustomed to living vicariously through everyone else. The main reason we haven’t packed our bags and jet-setted is because each year we choose to use the money for other things, you know like purchasing a home and for the past two years, we’ve been tackling paying off debt. Though I haven’t been on a trip in a while it doesn’t stop… 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

Just the Type of Boldness I was Looking For.

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ Boldness is not often a quality a woman would state as a requirement when listing her top must haves in a future mate. For me, however, I knew I needed a man that was strong enough to handle my intense personality.  One that could be the yin to my yang, as well as one bold enough to stand up to me when I started getting a little carried away. I wasn’t looking for boldness in a sense that they’d go out and fight a bull or ran 10K’s… View Post
