Whether it's politically, at the corporate level, entertainment industry or entrepreneurship, we are killing it! I am so proud to be a black woman in 2018.

Why cleansing your skin post workout is a MUST with Olay Daily Facials

Why cleansing your skin post workout is a MUST with Olay Daily Facials

I have been going strong with my fitness journey, and keeping up my workouts at least four  times a week, with my goal being five times a week. I am loving this journey. I am so focused on having a healthy mind, body and skin!! As you all know, skincare is so important to me. With increasing my workouts, there was one thing I had to increase, and that was my focus on my skin. With me working out frequently, this prompted me to add a new step to my skincare regimen and that is cleaning my face immediately after my workout with the Olay Daily Facials.

Dinner With Dayna- Baltimore

Dinner With Dayna- Baltimore

I am still on a high from this weekend! #DinnerWithDayna Baltimore edition was simply amazing. I started this dinner meet up for the first time last month when I had a quick impromptu business trip to Jacksonville, Florida. On my IG stories, I asked my community if anyone in the Jacksonville area wanted to meet up with me for dinner and I was surprised to get over 20 women to show up! The Jacksonville meet up was received so well and I started to receive hundreds of requests to do the meet up in other cities- and of course, my own city BALTIMORE was next up!

I can’t believe it has been a year since I left my corporate job to start my business. I am not going to lie, this year is flying by!! The main reason why this year is going by so fast is because I literally have been on the move. My business has been non-stop, in a great way! Running a business is not easy, and there’s days when I question myself and what I am doing, but I keep pushing and I stay motivated.

My Easy Go-To Summer Style

My Easy Go-To Summer Style

This past week I literally cleaned out my entire closet to organize and make room for all of my spring/summer styles. This summer, my key focus is all about easy, comfortable, and effortless style. I literally got rid of ten bags of clothes because I essentially wanted to start over with my summer wardrobe and get pieces that work with my summer mood.
