ABL: Always Be Learning… Why You Need to Further Your Education in the Way That Works Best for You

Hey loves,

I hope that you enjoy today’s post if you’re considering furthering your education. It’s important for me to share my thoughts on the topic. As someone with multiple degrees, folks are surprised at my personal definition of furthering your education. I don’t think that you need to have advanced letters after your name to prove your self worth. 

To me, furthering your education includes you hitting up the Amazon library and delving deep into a subject you’re interested in. I see many more parents saying that they want to give their kids money to start a business, not go to a college and become a slave to loans. I concur. There are many ways to learn and many certifications that may be more applicable to your goals than traditional education. Decide what is right for you…

Whatever route you choose, your education doesn’t create your worth. You are already enough, as is.

xoxo, aa

Spiritpreneur-in-Progress! The Fabulous Yelitsa Jean-Charles and Her Natural Hair Dolls

Hey Gorgeous- 

The Sacred Bombshell movement is all about self-love, and this blog is about self-worth. We define a Sacred Bombshell as a woman who loves, honors, and cherishes herself in mind, body and spirit. For most of us, this sense of self-worth and self-acceptance came as an adult — and continues to evolve. After all, if for whatever reason your beautiful parental figures didn’t love themselves, then they couldn’t teach you to love yourself.

Being a spiritpreneur is about taking your self-love to self-launch. In other words, your self-love manifested.


Everything great in this world was created by someone seeking to fill a need that makes their own heart sing. I call these creators spiritpreneurs. They are also known as heart-centered entrepreneurs, conscious entrepreneurs, and creative geniuses.

Visual activist Yelitsa Jean-Charles is one such future guru. She is a spiritpreneur-in-progress and currently studying at the prestigious RISD. Yes, she is the real deal. Her product is a line of beautiful Afro-textured natural hair dolls. Support her product, and support her upcoming Kickstarter.

My favorite doll when I was a little girl was a doll named Kimmie who had short, curly hair like mine and chocolate skin like mine. When I looked at her I felt beautiful. I wish the same for every little girl. -aa

‘The Swirl’! Brianna Cox Reviews a Controversial New Film on Interracial Relationships

My fabulous friend Christelyn Karazin is the go-to expert when it comes to interracial dating and women feeling empowered to make their own choices about their love lives. Yes! A couple of months ago, I interviewed Christelyn about her fun, new web series “Swirlr” for my Mommy Noire column. An interview with Christelyn is also featured in my new mind-body-spirit advice guide, “The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love.” 

Now, Moguldom, the wonderful people behind the Madame Noire-Mommy Noire empire is unveiling a new project on the subject. I haven’t had a chance to check out their comprehensive new documentary “The Swirl,” but the wonderful Brianna Cox is one the case. You can find the trailer for the film and find out how to see it after the jump.

Brianna is working with me this summer as a Media Liaison. Let’s give her a round of applause for her first post on this blog. Take it away, Brianna…
