Say, “Ready” if you’re going to have an abundant week!👋🏽
...but first coffee 😩 Last week I was hit with some rough news, some rejections and some opportunities taken away. This week, I’m using all those lemons and making some bomb af lemonade 🍋, ok!?👏🏽 This week I challenge you to:
1. Step out of your comfort zone
2. Do something you’ve been wanting to do
3. Do something you have been afraid to do because of fear
4. Complete that unfinished project
5. Smash this weeks goals
Y’all ready? 👋🏽
I’m beautiful no matter but being a healthier version of me is even more beautiful.
Over the past couple of years, I got lost in other things and forgot who the main focus was, me. If you’ve read my book, Finding My Sparkle - you know I am all about self-love, healthy body image and finding what truly makes you happy. Getting healthy from the inside out, makes me truly happy. I not only love the physical changes but the inside ones as well.
As an entrepreneur I’m able to focus more, not be so tired, properly give my body the nutrition it needs so I can be fully confident in whatever I do. Profile by Sanford has really been life changing for me and I’m not even finished with my journey yet. Finding a program that encourages not only my physical goals, but emotional ones has truly been eye opening.
This past week was a little struggle for me as I picked up doing more blog/brand work which is amazing through a pandemic. I was tempted to fall back into some old bad habits like not eating, not giving my body all the calories a day it needs or being tempted to eating something I know I would regret. I told my coach Jess, her voice popped in my head and it was a friendly reminder to say to myself, “is it worth it?” I reset and refocused on why I initially started this journey and how much I’ve already accomplished.

The kitchen just got fierce
I did not get the cooking for fun gene from my mother, who loves to test out new recipes and create her own. However over these past few months, your girl has been werkin in the kitchen! I think that is one of the things I love about working with Profile by Sanford, I have fallen in love with putting colorful and healthy meals into my body.
Believe it or not chopping up veggies has become quite therapeutic for me, it also allows me to get some self-care time in just for me, to unplug and focus on something else other than entrepreneurship. Plus I think cooking more instead of grabbing something to go has been great on my wallet but also my waistline! You know what that means, more clothes shopping in my future :)
Profile by Sanford has really pushed me to stay committed to a program that I can totally handle and not feel hungry or unsatisfied. Trust me, I’ve tried it all and I can honestly say, this is the best one yet. I’m so glad I invested in myself and my health - you only get one body. You should join me! You can use my special code MORGAN for a discount, so make sure you check it out.

Did you catch me on Fox 19 Now?
That’s right, your girl was back on Fox 19 for my Professional Pretty Blog! I talked about some fun ideas that you can still have some summer fun outside (social distancing).
For more details, you’ll have to visit my previous blog here💕
The sun has been out and I know everyone has had cabin fever, but please keep in mind coronavirus is still here and to make sure we are still continuing to stay safe! That’s why your girl put together a couple fun outdoor activities that you can do solo, with your partner or the whole family! These outdoor activities are also super effective, I didn’t spend more than $50 on each outdoor activity.
Since time is not a factor, why not really enjoy some time outside around some beautiful decor!? I had my friend Simone from The Confetti Room set up this cute and bougie picnic decor for me - but if you are talented like her you could totally do yourself. You can even hire her to come set this up for you for a day or night date in the park! Surrounded by so much pretty decor really enhances your vibes, I felt like someone’s rich auntie lounging in the park, people watching.
This is a bonus add on for a picnic or just to take with you to sit outside and enjoy the weather! This lovely board you can totally do yourself, or be like me and rely on other people’s talents such as 5 Star Meal Prep. They focus on healthy food that taste good, so this was a perfect option for me to snack on while I enjoyed my day date in the park.
I mean the title says it all! This you can do inside or outside. I have my limits so I decided to take this one in doors :) All you need is a cute bar cart or table, real fire or chaffers, graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows, and an extra bonus - chocolate or butterscotch toppings.
This would make a really cute date night or a family dessert treat - or you could totally do it like me and treat yo self! You really don’t need a reason.
Patio Game Night
You don’t have to just have game night’s inside, if you have a patio or outdoor seating space, take the fun outside! Make sure you have some bug repellent and candles though, if you are like me - I don’t do the bugs and certainly not the bug bites! Summer nights feel different outside with a nice cool breeze - so pick up some board games, download a fun game app and enjoy the fresh air! You can pick up inexpensive board games from amazon, dollar general or target.
Inflatable Pool Party
If you live in a building like me, going to a swimming pool is not really an option right now. So why not get an inflatable pool for one! There are so many cute inflatable pools out right now, I found this cute solo pool for only $20 at Homegoods along with the beach towel and pillow for only $15! If you have a family, you can totally get a bigger inflatable pool. I decided to join my friend outside, social distancing of course for a pool party we could enjoy together!
Its a Vive…
See what I did there? Listen up, ya’ll! I am super excited to have partnered with Vive Seltzer!
First of all, its a local company so you know I had to rep my hometown. What I also love about Vive Seltzer is there are no artificial sweeteners - I get really bad headaches from fake sugar. It’s full of natural fruit flavors with no icky after taste, ya’ll know what I mean. It’s also gluten free, with only 100 calories and 2 grams of carbs so it doesn’t hurt my goals.
Plus what’s better than hanging out on your neighborhood stoop, people watching (social distancing) and sipping on some spiked sparkling water - you heard me spiked sparkling water. This is one of my favorite flavors, Mango but it comes in 7 other tasty flavors. Would you try this flavor? You can find Vive at Kroger and other stores near you, you can find here.
