This week, I chatted with Sherica A. Matthews about developing and cultivating emotional intimacy in a relationship with your spouse or partner while also running your business or pursuing a successful career. As moms, partners, business owners, career-women, or some combination of all four, sometimes (okay, maybe a lot of the time) we struggle with maintaining that strong relationship with our partners. With the added pressure of teleworking and virtual school, a lot of us are stressed, busy, and struggling now more then ever. So, I figured we were long overdue for a conversation about the challenges we face with building emotional intimacy in our relationships and how to overcome those issues.
My biggest takeaway? Relationships are abstract, so there's no "right way" to handle them. As far as relationship advice, tips, ideas, etc. take the concepts that you find the most helpful and adapt them to your specific situation.

Authentic Living: Why It's Important And How To Start Today's chat with Bianca Hughes is near and dear to my heart. If you're on my email list or you follow me on social, we've discussed the importance of honoring ourselves and who we are OUTSIDE of being mothers. I recently began that journey for myself, and it has definitely made me a more present and relaxed mother and partner. Embracing and celebrating all of the parts that make up who you are is the perfect example of authentic living. If you're someone who struggles with living authentically and you want to find your true self, I encourage you to have a listen!

Giving What It's Supposed To Give: Black Owned Plus Size Clothing That Flatters & Inspires USE CODE ALLDAY TO SAVE 15% ON YOUR SANTE GRACE PURCHASE Today's episode brought to you by my 2021 Black Owned Business Gift Guide! November's Black Owned Business of the Month is Black owned plus size clothing brand, Sante Grace! I chatted with owner and designer, Tracy Christian, about the challenges she has overcome since launching Sante Grace last year at the height of the pandemic and how she basically created her own blueprint for quality, designer-inspired plus size clothing. FULL SHOWNOTES HERE As you'll hear Tracy mention, one of the biggest pitfalls of the fashion industry is that it is inherently designed to make women feel less than, as if there's some part of their body that they need to fix in order to be able to rock the latest trend. But one of the amazing things that sets Sante Grace apart, is that Tracy creates beautiful clothing to make you feel good RIGHT NOW, not after Spanx, and not 5-10 pounds from now. I was so inspired by my chat with Tracy and I know you will be too. Enjoy! Pin It For Later DISCLOSURE: I only recommend products I would use myself and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Premier Episode! I'm super excited to share my very first episode with you guys! The Tribe Culture Life podcast has been a loooong time coming, and it's the perfect vehicle to share even MORE Black and POC stories and voices with you. So, where does the name Tribe Culture Life come from? It's simple: if you're ready to hear even more perspectives on cultural issues that matter to our community, you're my people and you're definitely my tribe! As you may know, I started All Day Britney earlier this Summer as a way to share my story and encourage others to share theirs. Here, I write about everything that interests me, from my adventures raising my babies to style advice and reviews of the Black owned businesses that I patronize as often as I can. Originally, my YouTube channel was where the "other Black and POC voices part came in". I have so enjoyed chatting with my guests and getting to know them and their stories. That segment seems to be pretty popular with you guys too! But, it occurred to me that my chat sessions might be much easier to consume in podcast form, since you listen to those while you're doing... well, just about anything else. And so, Tribe Culture Life was born! I've got some great guests lined up for you over the next few weeks so I hope you'll join me and engage!
