This month, we're celebrating Valentine's Day with special love themed TarotScopes from the amazing Clairvoyant Tarot Reader, Bianca Webb.

I asked Spirit what is the Energy that I should acknowledge for the month of January 2018 for an overall theme of what you should look for in the coming weeks.
My life purpose as a Lightworker and as a healer has not come without sacrifice, experiences or darkness. I hope to shed light on what it means to truly grow through darkness in order to glow through the light.
My spiritual journey has taught me to become more conscious and enlightened in regards to energies by using astrology and moon cycles. I’ve realized that the power of the universe is charging my personal power, and using moon rituals can help to channel that power into activating my desires.
The holidays may have come and gone but winter is here to stay. This is a difficult season for many, considering that it’s freezing out, the days are short (if you work a 9-5, practically non-existent), and it’s impossible to ignore the toll that the dry air takes on the skin. Here are a few staples that keep me sane during this time...
For someone who spends her lunch hour lurking around beauty shops and returns to work with swatched arms, the Indie Beauty Expo (IBE) is my literal heaven. Having stumbled upon it last year through a co-worker’s suggestion, I made sure to attend this year’s as well.
We can and SHOULD break ourselves free from these systems, from these learned ideals of beauty, by listening to both our own bodies and the techniques and remedies our ancestors used to nurture themselves long before the sterilization of beauty and pharmaceuticals were imposed by outsiders.
Having good skin that doesn’t need to be filtered with VSCO, Instagram, FaceTune, or whatever other enhancing apps that exist, is something a lot of us desire. Not to say we don’t love these apps or filters, but that not-so-humble filterless brag on social media about “minding your business and drinking water” to maintain your healthy skin is goals for many of us desiring perfect skin.
A few weeks ago, I came across a custom botanic perfume making workshop hosted by Aba Love Apothecary. The workshop involved making your own perfumes using essential oils extracted from plants. As an individual who enjoys perfumes, the selling point was using non-synthetic fragrances to develop my own, personal fragrance.
Personal wellness is more than just a fad, it is a lifestyle. Particularly concerning anything “natural”, from foods to skincare cosmetics, we are becoming more aware of how everyday consumptions affect our overall wellness. We’ve seen splurge of green juice bars that complement boutique gyms. Food delivery services make it easier for us to have chia seeds and avocado-anything with almost every meal.
Spoken Black Girl Mag was on the scene for Harlem Fashion Week 2018! This showcase of talented black fashion designers was the perfect way to kick off Black History Month. This year, HFW took over the Museum of the City of New York for the show.
I was fortunate enough to attend Writing + Yoga on behalf of SpokenBlackGirl.com. Considering the mentally and emotionally taxing world we are currently living in, I actively search for any source of relief, and as an avid lover of both restorative writing and yoga, I was beyond excited to be able to attend.
