Jade rolling has been a part of Chinese beauty since the 7th century. No ewonder this beauty treatment has been around for so long, it is so beneficial for the skin, and I believe it really works. Some can be expensive, but you can find some inexpensive ones on Amazon,

In the midst of the chaos that was the last few months, I made sure to keep my beauty regimen on point. Just because I was dead to the world, didn't mean I had to look it.  Since I wasn't going to be headed to the spa anytime soon, jade rolling became my number one beauty treatment. 


 Wearing my beloved more issues than vogue shirt and celine sunglasses.  Just glad that my uterine fibroids are no longer an issue.

First of all, can we talk about the gorgeousness that is my new blog?! Have been working on it for weeks, and she's finally here. AMEN. Perfect timing, because as my blog has had a much needed rebirth, so have I, but I'll get into that in a little...for those wondering, DMACK stands for  my initials...ok, if we're being completely honest, my actual initials are DACMK but that just doesn't have the same pizazz, and I've always loved the Mark Morrison song. Legendary. Maybe I'll legally change my name, some day..thanks Mom and Dad, not only am I not an heiress, but now this is something else to add to my to-do list. Expect an invoice. Kidding...mostly.

In all seriousness, the reason I've dubbed this the return is because I've been out of commission for the last few months dealing with a health condition. Disclaimer:nothing gives me more anxiety than attention, especially a lot of it. I prefer to fly under the radar without people asking me a million questions, Can I live?! Besides my family and a few close friends, no one knew what I've been going through the last few months. The reason I am sharing this story now is because not a lot of people are aware of this health condition and it affects so many women, especially in the African-American community. And doctors have no idea what causes it.


My beach is better 
Can I just say how ridiculously happy I am that the weather is warm again in L.A.?! Yes, I knew winter would eventually be over, but I feel like this was the longest winter in history. So over the cold. Anyway, I celebrated the gorgeous weather with a  much-needed beach day. Fun fact, I try to go to the beach during the week because it's less crowded. If you're able to, sneak away on a weekday, you won't regret it! Anyway enough talk about when to go to the beach. let's get into the reason for this post: a very interesting, random, confusing, semi-traumatic incident that occurred a la plage. I originally did an obnoxiously long snap story about this, but so many people kept asking me about it, and also Snaps and IG stories only last so long, so here we go...
