It's Finally Here: The NEW Reasons And Roses!

I'm BAAACK! The long-awaited redesign is finally here and I LOVE the results, which are courtesy of Elaina Hamilton and the great people at Kalidescope. I'm still learning my way around the new WordPress website after being a Blogger girl for such a long time. In the meantime, let me introduce you to the new direction of the blog. I did a post at the beginning of the year about the new posting schedule, but the other change is the blog's focus. My goal is for ReasonsAndRoses to become the official lifestyle blog for Southern, metropolitan black women. I'm going to post three days a week ( tentatively those days will be Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) on the following topics: Aura- Beauty

Sophisticate- Fashion

Aware- Social Commentary/News

Focus- Career

People + Culture- Entertainment

Balance- Health

Love + Relationships- Relationships ( of course!)

I also want to start profiling successful, beautiful, sophisticated Southern African-American women once a month. If you have any suggestions about who you would like to see, send me a message or leave a note in the comments. I'm excited about the future of Reasons And Roses, especially because this is only the beginning.  I have much bigger plans in store! Keep watching and enjoy!
