When I was a little girl, I always admired the stylish Black women in my life. From the goings on at the beauty shop to the pews at church to the slayage at family gatherings, I always knew that Black women possessed something that no other species did. It's in the styling of our hair, the choice of accessories and prints, the mixing of textures that made the swag astronomincal. I don't know about you but I am grateful to my ancestors for passing that intrinsic style down to me and my homegirls.


Every week on xoNecole, we gather some of the flyest Instagram posts of the week to keep shining a light on Black women and their magic. This go-round, we know you'll be stunned by the getups these women conjured up. Keep scrolling for that heat!

Sevyn Streeter recently released her latest album Drunken Wordz Sober Thoughtz and it's sexy. I'm talking, you may add a few songs to "the playlist," sexy. A few of my favorite tracks are "Change My Mind," "Nasty Girl," and "Wet Dreams." And while this album is definitely a mood-setter, I realize that I connect most of her songs with special moments or memories. When I belt out "B.A.N.S.," I'm really yelling at my ex. And when "It Won't Stop" is on repeat, it's because it's because I'm daydreaming of a relationship that makes me feel as free and beautiful as that song. But, in my opinion, that's what music is supposed to do, make you feel, escape, and think.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. College students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather and partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there's plenty to see and do! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

I don't know about y'all but when I was growing up, when it came to what I should eat vs. what I should avoid, I oftentimes heard folks say, "If it's white, it ain't right." In this context, what that meant was foods like white bread, white rice (except for jasmine rice), white pasta — none of these were considered to be very healthy because they tend to be so over-processed that there is minimal nutritional value to them. Because of that, eating them on a consistent basis can lead to health issues like obesity, type 2 diabetes, constipation, depression-related symptoms and even fatty liver disease.

It was 2018 when I realized working in a toxic work environment and pursuing a high-stress career in Corporate America wasn't for me. But at the time, resources on how to take a career break were scarce. I researched, googled, and scrolled through Pinterest. I read blogs and listened to podcasts about other women who traveled and eventually made a career switch. But there wasn't a platform dedicated to strategizing an exit plan from the American lifestyle. At least, not for women of color. I was left to make these life-altering decisions on my own with little to no help or substantial resources.
