Real Talk | November 2018


Hello everyone! Today, I wanted to give you an update on The Life of Alana brand (I guess I’m a brand now), create a few goals for that so called “brand” and myself personally, and share some words of wisdom from a not-so-wise, but still semi-smart lady. I also think I’m going to make this […]

How in the world are we halfway through October?! That realization just hit me this morning and I began freaking out! Time and to do lists are getting away from me and I hate that feeling! However, today (Sunday) I’m trying to catch up on a lot of things and get some serious work done. […]
