First time at Target After Quarantine ...




    I ended up at Target to fill a prescription yesterday afternoon. The line was long to get in but it went pretty fast. Once inside I felt like they had the same amount of people they would normally have during pre-covid days. It did not bother me ... at least not right away. There were no lines for the pharmacy, I did not wait long to get attended to. When I was finished, I went to get a few things, it was different to see most of the Target shelves empty. A lot was missing. 

As I started off I witnessed a grown adult eating , licking her fingers, and then touching the shopping cart. It grossed me out. I decided to just grab the essentials and not stroll around the store, just as I would do pre-covid days. It was my shortest Target shopping ever. I felt so out of place, super AWKWARD. It's been months since I've stepped into a store. Chris is the one who makes runs when I can't get a delivery. 

When I was done shopping I went to the line and realized that it started at the back of the store. On the line it was obvious that there were those people who took the pandemic seriously and those who didn't. Those who did not, scared me. Like the person carrying his uncovered newborn through possibly contaminated humans. I rushed out of there and into an Uber right away. I don't think I am ready to be around so many people especially those that do not take this seriously.

Thriving with change ...


2020. One big clusterfuck  but at the same time a year of blessings and change. It's now June and I can't remember anything that happened before March. I know January and February were eventful but the details are a blur. For me personally my life changed. I found out I was pregnant and got laid off, and hired as a freelancer right before the Covid Pandemic. 

I quarantined two weeks before shelter in place in NYC because I was scared of the unknown, especially being pregnant. I had been watching what was going on in China and I just wanted to protect my family. I have been grateful for this time off being that three years of a full time job did not allow me the time I needed with my son, husband and my business. 

During this time through the anxiety caused by uncertainty,  I was somehow able to think clearly about what I wanted to do with my projects. I definitely wanted to simplify my life before baby number 2 gets here. One way was to merge and rebrand my blog, you tube channel, influencer page and store together. 

I decided to name this collective " Suite LLH". 

5 Quotes : I AM - The Power of Discovering Who You Really Are

"The less you claim of the power you have to create your life, the more easily you will be manipulated or will submit to the creative power and energy from the people around you. If you are not consciously creating your own path, others- your significant other, boss, kids, strangers, political and religious leaders, or someone or something else - will decide your path for you. The decision available to you in every moment of your life is whether or not you are ready to realize more of the power within you to consciously create and gain full control over your life, or if you will allow your intentions and your creative desires to be secondary to the creative intentions of others.
