well, hi.

I’ve had Tumblr since I was in undergrad, where it served as my Pinterest-before-Pinterest-was-actually-real. Now, I’m in my final year of professional school, living at my parents, and I desperately need a hobby.

I wanted this place to be my little section of the Internet where I document all the things I love: pop culture, baking, health + beauty, and fashion. Particularly, with a brown girl twist. In all honesty, the vast majority of the blogs I read aren’t catered to readers that don’t look like me. So, I want this to be a place where we feel included.

Here’s hoping my sister won’t be my only reader. Hey, girl!

xo, T.

What do y’all want? Y’all want to dance?! You want some ballads? A little rock & roll? Soul? How about I just do it all!

Beyonce asked the crowd what they want from her new album, last night at Revel.

…Someone’s back in the studio ;)

I am Troy Davis.

So. Excited.
