You guys know I’m not really into TV shows. I simply don’t have the time to commit, plus I lose interest quickly. About a year ago, Queen of the South made it’s debut and I’ve been hooked since.
The series tells the powerful story of a Latina who seeks refuge in America after her drug-dealing husband is taken out. Teresa becomes a powerful Queen Pin and teams up with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run.
I Netflixed and chilled all week because I’m all about a refresher.
Obviously, I’m not a Queen Pin but I think that Teresa is relatable in so many ways. Home girl overcame the lowest of lows and came out on top during the first season. This new chapter will focus on her survival instincts as she starts to recognize her power and potential in the drug cartel. We both slay through this crazy place called LIFE.
So many things have shifted a bit for me in the last year. Everyone thinks I sit behind a computer all day as a blogger, but it’s far from the truth. This little piece of internet real estate has given me the opportunity to work in media/marketing and I couldn’t be happier. As fun as this is, a huge chunk of my job is hustling and using my instincts. You’re truly on survival mode because this isn’t a typical cushy 9-5 office job. My secret is being a “yes!” girl and never flaking on loved ones.
STK Anniversary party which was amazing for networking. Why, “yes!”, I want to party.
I’m still good friends with people from middle and high school. In fact, I met up with at least five girls this month. Now that we’re in our 30s and most are moms, this is a big deal. These are the people who keep me grounded and know that I can always count on them.
Family time this past Memorial Day weekend. As much as I wanted to work (truly!), I put everything aside to hang and relax with them.
And I took a nap with my little boos. Recharging is everything and I always forget to put my needs first.
Y’all know I slay in the kitchen. There’s just something about feeding my loved ones that make me so happy.
