31 Days Of Self-Love

31 days of self love

What Is Self-Love? Two years ago I decided I would start blogging again and made a commitment to stick with it. I started out with my 31 days of self-love messages to introduce myself and share a little of my back story and my journey on this road of discovery. Earlier this year my website crashed and unfortunately I wasn’t able to recover my 31 days of self-love post. I…

Feminine Hygiene Drive

Growing up I never knew much about my body. I got my menstrual before I was a teenager and everything I learned was pretty basic. “Girls get their periods. You can get pregnant. Don’t have sex.” That was it. I never learned how to track my cycle, I didn’t know about ovulation and I didn’t learn about the uncontrollable mood swings until I was in my late teenage years. But,…

Jeju:en Sheet Mask

Trudean Haye

I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t been keeping up with my skincare routine. Even though I wash my face every morning sometime that’s not enough especially when my hair is braided for a long period. This weekend I decided I would set some time aside for myself and have a home spa day. It was refreshing, relaxing and I felt so rejuvenated afterwards. As you all know already,…

Do You Believe In Love After Love?

Trudean Haye

Growing up I always thought Cher was singing “ Do you believe in love after love” It wasn’t until today that I looking up the lyrics that I found out it was “life” not “love”. Hilarious. Before I looked up the lyrics, the title popped in my head. It’s Valentine’s Day and for the first time in 6 years I’m actually spending it alone. I began to ask myself, do…

Transition

transition - trudean haye

It’s been awhile since my last blog post. Honestly so much has happened in my life that I needed to take a break. At the end of May I announced I was taking some time off because I felt like I was at my breaking point. No amount of positive affirmations can prepare you to handle the emotional and mental struggles you’re going through. Recovering from my miscarriage in August…

Hello May, Goodbye April

Trudean Haye

It’s gonna be MAY… I know,  so corny but hey, we still love it nevertheless. May 2018, first, where did April went? I feel like April just came and went while I was on a standstill. I’m so grateful to all those that read my blog and find inspiration and encouragement. I want to be as open with you all as much as possible because, I truly believer the more…

It’s OK To Not Be OK

Trudean Haye

“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and…

The Process

Trudean Haye- The Process

Growing up, I would often hear the phrase; “ trust the process” and I’ve always believed in trusting the process of anything that’s going on in my life.  Things happening in our lives or around us and while we may not understand it, we “trust the process.” But lately, this process has been difficult and I’m having a hard time trusting it.  I question myself. “What’s going to happen next?’…

Somewhere I Belong

Somewhere I Belong

Growing up I always felt like an outcast. I was always weird. I found out I was adopted at a young age, it didn’t mean much to me back then because I was young but later in life I found out my biological mom had many more kids after me and that I was the only one put up for adoption. I felt unwanted as a kid and even as…

I Had A Miscarriage

I Had A Miscarriage

Recently I shared via periscope a personal experience. At first I wasn’t going to make a blog post about it but then I realized that just like me, many women suffers in silence and it’s time we break that cycle.   Having a miscarriage isn’t something we should be ashamed about and even though we may not always know how to control the emotions we feel doesn’t mean you should…

  • I woke up like this. Flawed 😂😂😍😍. This unruly child of mine (my hair) won't let me be great. After I spend over an hour straightening it, it still did what it wanted. Shrink and Poof! Guess I'll be rocking my frohawk for awhile. #thisisme #naturalhair #naturalhairstyles #iwokeuplikethis #someonecomedomyhair #imoverit #mesocute
