What I Did In July + August: Anniversaries, Travels + VIP Days



Aug 29, 2022


Girl, how is it September already?! The last time I did one of these posts, it was February and it honestly feels like that was just yesterday. I planned on doing these once a month, but 2022 clearly has somewhere to be and she is flying by.

I’d just say that March, April, May and June were great; we celebrated Faren’s second birthday, launched her YouTube channel, there was a family wedding, loads of content created, I even got to be a part of the audience for two live tapings of The View, which celebrated it’s 25th anniversary in The Bahamas. See I told you, March, April, May and June were great. Now let me bring you give you this monthly recap on what I did in July and August.


I hosted my first VIP Day – I was super duper excited about this!! I’ve always toyed with the idea of adding one-on-one coaching to my offerings and I finally booked my first one. I was running promos for my Better On Camera workshop, when someone messaged me about teaching the course one-on-one because she couldn’t make the dates for the workshop. We booked the VIP Day and went into the studio for five full hours! She got the personalized, one-on-one attention she wanted, the focus on her specific pain points and all of her questions answered. We shot some content, had lunch an overall amazing time together! And I’ve booked another VIP Day for September! If you want one-on-one coaching from me to tackle your media or social media setbacks, shoot me an email to!

Family vacation – For the second year in a row we took a little breather to head tot he family’s timeshare in Orlando, Florida. It was much needed! We dined, we had some fun, we had lazy days by the pool, we shopped and we rested…a little. I love taking Faren on these trips to spark her travel bug and so that she can spend time with her cousins. Check out last year’s trip and some tips on travelling with a baby.

Robin Thicke and Ashanti – I definitely lived my best “college playlist” life at the Ashanti and Robin Thicke concert. One thing bout me, I’m gon’ sing the lyrics to the top of my lungs, and that I did! I love concerts where I could sing the songs word for word without missing a lyric. I loved getting dressed up and reliving memories through great music.


Year Four – In mid-August hubby and I celebrated our four year wedding anniversary. Geez! Where has the time gone? It was a quiet one too; we went to dinner at one of our favorite sushi spots and then headed for drinks and chill time. Now that I’m writing this, I realize that next year is Year Five; a milestone year! I wonder how we should celebrate!

Hosted my Better On Camera workshop – I could hardly believe that my second summer workshop is behind me! I spent most of the summer planning, writing the curriculum and selling my workshop and I’m super proud with the turnout. I got the opportunity to coach nine women on how to show up more confidently on camera. It was two full days of learning, networking, growing and shooting amazing content! It was a lot of work, but it was so worth it. Check out all the details about the Better On Camera workshop here! And if you’re interested in signing up for the next session, hit me up to snag your spot!

Whew! How’s that for six months’ worth of a monthly recap? We’re headed into my favorite time of year; fall, and I can’t wait for the events, gatherings, food and pumpkin!
