Happy Friday Friends!

"Welcome back to "The Cre8tive Life!"- your weekly newsletter full of lifestyle tips, smiles, and cool things to check out! 

This past week has been largely spent getting acclimated to my latest client project. Aside from that, I was able to squeeze in some time to go to a very inspirational Black History Month program at TBWA\WorldHealth, and attend another networking event on entrepreneurship.  

I haven't posted/shared (or really even taken any pics this week)---but, you can always feel free to check out my pictures, video highlights, stories, and other life musings on my personal instagram page (@e101) and official brand page (@thecre8tiveartisan) throughout the week---I try to post some of my randomness there.

*And, if you have missed any previous newsletters, feel free to check out the archive section on my website: HERE.

Have an AMAZING weekend and upcoming week!



My weekly (random) compilation of some of my favorite "cre8tive" things that I want to share:

  • FAVORITE WORD: Trouvaille (noun): Something lovely discovered by chance


  • ADVICE: “Be the type of energy that no matter where you go, you always add value to the spaces and lives around you." - Anonymous


  • MOOD MUSIC: Diggin' in the crates with one of my favorites-the timeless "Star of the Story" classic from Heatwave.



  • COOKERY MAGIC: I haven't personally made it...but, this Cauliflower Bolognese looks quite tasty, and seems to have gotten some rave reviews from some people I know.



  • FEEL GOOD STORY: Sometimes you just need a story that's going to make you smile...and, THIS, my friends, is it.


Feeling a bit drained this week- and, literally running on fumes...so, I'm sharing this little inspirational graphic from Lalah Delia. I hope it provides you with some resolve and encouragement!


This week's challenge is to do an intentional act of self-care.


Thank you to everyone that has filled out the survey! I will be sharing some upcoming events that I have been working on in the next couple of newsletters- so stay tuned for more info and invites!

For those who haven't filled out the survey, I can definitely still use your feedback. So, if you have not done so already, please take  5 minutes to fill out:


Thanks sooooooo much in advance for your time!

***Totally disregard this part of the newsletter if you have already done this.


Lastly, if you happen to have any future topic ideas, or come across any events I should know about, PLEASE feel free to send those along my way. I always LOVE discovering and learning about new things! 

Have a great day, and be sure to take time to enjoy your life!
