Perfectionism, Grace and Enjoying the Process


Hey! Before we start did you know that I am also on YouTube?

Every-once in a while, a post from this page is featured and discussed in detail on my channel! Along with featuring blog posts you can find other thoughts, vlogs featuring my pretty average life and discussions on mental wellness and personal development. I enjoy doing it and would love to see some of you there too!

This week I featured this post on my channel! You can find it here or watch it below!


I struggle with perfectionism in my marriage.


Well, actually that’s a partial truth. I do struggle with perfectionism in my marriage, but not just there. I struggle with perfectionism everywhere, I always have. I thought, however, that I had overcome it. That I had finally reached contentment with being imperfect and had fully embraced my flaws in all of their glory. I thought that until…well until I got married.

How did I figure that one out? Lately, I’ve found myself frustrated. It took me a little while to figure out the source of my frustration but once I figured it out it made sense.


I’ve been doing this thing since I was a teenager and honestly probably earlier. I strive to be the absolute best at everything. When I fail, inevitably, I take it hard and become pretty verbally degrading to myself. I’ve made steps towards releasing myself from my impossible expectations, but what I didn’t predict was that instead of me holding myself to an unreasonably high standard, I would project my expectations of myself as expectations others had on me. Translation; I would assume that someone else expected me to be a certain way and as a result, I would try to conform to whatever the assumed expectations of me were.

Enter this past week with me feeling worn out and exhausted and like I was a total failure at being the superwoman & wife that I felt I was expected to be when in reality…the only one who expected that from me…was me.
I expected me to keep my home spotless at all times without needing help to maintain it. I expected me to keep up with cooking nutritious and elaborate dinners every evening. I expected me to keep every mental note of what needed to be purchased when and what we were running out of in the home. And I expected me to be able to do all of these things while maintaining my work schedule, sleep schedule gym schedule, social life, and creative projects.
It’s not possible.
So I “failed”. I failed and became tired and frustrated and moody and irritable. It’s funny just how quickly something can become a burden when you put it up on a pedestal like that. And that includes yourself. That’s exactly what happened to me. Cooking, something that I take joy in, became a burden. Cleaning, something that usually calms me and improves my mood, became a burden. All of these things that really don’t bother me when I’m in a mentally healthy space become the sources of my frustration. Even myself, simply existing and dealing with the everyday nuances of life became a frustration. All because I believed I needed to uphold an expectation of perfection that in reality…was never placed upon me.


The moral of this story? You’re not that special.
Just kidding; kind of.
Really though, what I learned from this and will continue to learn because I guarantee I’ll need another lesson of this in the near future is this: allow yourself to simply be human. I have to remind myself constantly that I’m a human who needs rest. I’m a human who needs help. I’m a human who wasn’t designed to do it all and I really shouldn’t spend all of my valuable energy trying to do just that. Striving for perfect at the cost of your joy, your peace, and your relationships is prideful. It’s discontentment. It stems from places of envy, insecurity, and from focusing way to much on yourself.


I wasn’t designed to be perfect (because what even is that first of all), but I was designed to simply live, and to live means to learn, and mess up and explore and to feel things. To reject the entire process is to miss out on life’s lessons and blessings. I am not above needing grace from others or needing grace from myself and I need to give more of it. I think we all could use a bit more grace.
I wish I could say this will be the last time I lecture myself on getting rid of my perfectionist tendencies, but it won’t be. That’s a part of the process and that too is a part of living. I’m going to do my best to enjoy it, all of it.

Let’s Talk Hair | ft. Edge Naturale Follicle Enhancer

Simplicity has become something I value as of late. 

With life forcing all of us to slow down and disconnect, I’ve been able to hone in on the things in my life that I connect with. 

I’ve found that I really vibe with having a routine, a simple, flexible routine, but a routine nevertheless. Something as simple as waking up and starting my morning with a devotional and a cup of tea can set my tone for the rest of the day. 

All of my routines are simple, from skincare, to face care and even hair care. I work hard to keep them that way (one stroll through the skincare section at Target is all it takes to tempt me into reinstating my product junkie status tho).

Currently, I’m in a stage of trying to grow out my hair to allow it to be its healthiest self. This means that I keep my hair in low manipulation styles, deep condition once a week, and try my best to stay on top of hydrating my hair (sometimes I forget and my scalp quickly reminds me). I’ve been pretty content with the results so far but one area I’ve always struggled with was my edges. I’m a 4c curly girl with edges that come and go and cooperate as they please. Rarely does this concern me but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t give a few edge growth products a try in the past few years. 

Edge Naturale : let's talk hair by Nicole Eva

When Edge Naturale reached out to me and asked me to review their product, I was excited! A product that I could, if it worked, add into my simple daily routine that would help solve a problem that I needed an answer to. It seemed like a no brainer, so I said “Yes”!

lets talk hair Edge Naturale

As of this point, I’ve been using the Edge Naturale Follicle Enhancer For Natural Edges for about two weeks. Here’s what I love about it so far:

  1. It’s a simple add-in to my daily routine. You simply apply it wherever you’d like twice daily. For me, that’s my edges and the nape of my neck. I like to dampen my hair and massage the product into my scalp in the morning and at night right before bed. 
  2. It smells great. The fresh peppermint smell honestly makes me feel so good in the morning and I enjoy the fact that it’s light and not overpowering. 
  3. The ingredients are natural. Peppermint oil, Argan oil, Castor oil, Jojoba oil, and more! I’m quite picky about what I put into my hair, so I’m happy that this product is also selective about what is being placed in my hair and on my scalp. 
  4. They encourage you to take before and after pictures! I think it shows a certain level of confidence when a company places on their product (yes it’s on the physical tub) that they want you to take before and after photos. To me, that states that they know their product works. 
  5. Lastly, I love how this product feels. In the tub, it’s surprisingly light and feels almost whipped. When it goes on my head, it doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. It doesn’t leave any gunky residue behind or clump my hair together. Finally, I love the slight cooling/tingling sensation on my scalp after the application, that alone makes me feel like it’s working. 

As a bonus, this business is a small, black-owned, woman-owned business. You guys already know how I feel about supporting small businesses. 

Overall, I’m pleased with this product. I’ll be continuing to use this product as a part of my morning and nighttime routine for the rest of this month, I’m excited to see what changes are to come with my hair. 

If you’re interested in checking out the Edge Naturale Follicle Enhancer For Natural Edges, head on over to their website EdgeNaturale.com. They extended their labor day sale so if you act fast you can get a pretty good deal!

Taking care of yourself is so important! I believe that with all of my heart so when I have the chance to celebrate a product that helps me to do just that, you better believe I’m going to be sharing that with you!

Thanks for reading friends, we’ll chat soon.

In the Midst | Life Updates and Life Lessons

I need a new journal.

My old one is nowhere near filled to the brim like the ones before, but I feel like this new chapter in my life requires a completely new book to symbolize everything that has changed you know?

There’s been a lot of change. Some really great and some I really wish hadn’t come about. Over the past 2 months I moved out of my home, moved into a new apartment, got married and am now in the process of adjusting to life as a wife alongside my new hubs. Crazy, right? We’ll sort through the details of all of that another time, but yes. Major changes and the good kind. Some other major changes, from the other side of the scale; my grandmother who lives in Barbados fell sick and passed away and right after my family dog of 16 years also fell sick and passed.

Through all of these events, I’ve been learning some really important lessons. Lessons of how to be excited and happy about life while simultaneously mourning the loss of a normal that was once so comfortable. I’ve been learning the beauty of sadness which is the simple fact that without immense sadness we wouldn’t understand the value of joy and vice versa, without the presence of joy we wouldn’t really understand the depth of loss and saddness. The fact is we need to know one to appreciate the other…and to shut oneself off to the saddness means you inadvertanly tone down the vibrancy of your joy. That took me a few days to digest…

So. In the midst of mourning and supporting my family through their grief and also accepting their support of me in mine, I’ve been training myself. Training myself to feel the emotions as they come, the tears, the confusion, the guilt…everything that comes with grieving. I feel it all and resist the urge to censor them for the sake of the comfort of others around me. Once I’ve felt them to their extent I understand them…I understand that I mourn because of the joy that was present. I understand that to have had that joy was the greatest gift. I also use this moment to learn. I note how I feel in these moments and make intentions to connect with and experience joy with those who are here with me now. Because, not to be super cliché, but there really is no time like the present.

Tomorrow is Saturday. I will go out and look for a new journal. Typically I would browse online stores for hours until I found the perfect one, but as you can probably tell, I’ve got a lot of writing to do and I’d like to get started as soon as possible.


I’ve been away for a little while. Sometimes it gets a little hard to write when life throws it’s messy little curveballs at you. Something that’s helped keep me sane has been how lovely this online community is even when a creator goes ghost for a little while. Thanks to all of you who have checked in on me, written me cute little messages on my recent posts and who have kept in touch on instagram and twitter. Y’all are the best.

For those of you not yet connected with me outside of my writings here, I’d love to connect with you on instagram or twitter or even my facebook page! I love chatting with you all (it’s literally my favorite thing).

Thanks for hanging out, talk soon!

Reflections

I’ve been spending the last few days/weeks/month reflecting on this season of life. ⁣

It’s been such a wild ride and at many points I’ve been like “aight God let me off these people are whacked”. But one of my prayers lately has been to not lose track of the beauty in the midst of the chaos, and as a result I’ve almost grown to find more peace in the crazy than I do in the mundane. ⁣

I find that people love louder in the crazy. People seek joy in the small things in the crazy. Artists create powerfully in the crazy. And me, I dance harder and sing louder in the crazy (if you see me dancing in my car mind yo business 🙂). ⁣

All in all, yea it’s chaos and it pretty much feels like the world is imploding at times, but there’s still beauty here. You may just have to squint a little bit while looking for it 🤎

how to reset your sleep schedule, how to reset your sleep schedule after corona, Covid-19,

How to Reset Your Sleep Schedule in 5 Steps

I don’t know about you, but my sleep schedule over the last month and a half has gone from decent to bad to “sleep where???” This isn’t because I don’t value sleep by the way. I love sleep! BUT sleep doesn’t love me right now and it’s 100% my fault. 

With the talk of opening businesses back up comes the talk of employees going back to work. Some of you will be returning to work after working from home. Some of you will be hitting the job market hunting for jobs that are now looking for new hires. Either way we are going to be transitioning from out of the office to back in the office and a good night’s sleep is going to be a requirement. 

My current sleep schedule is: In bed by 12:30, scroll social media “trying to fall asleep” until 2:30, try to fall asleep without social media for a half-hour, and actually fall asleep between 3-4:00. It’s trash. I need a total sleep schedule reset if I am going to be moderately useful back at work. With all of the other adjustments that’ll need to be made, I don’t want to be fatigued alongside them. Below I will share 5 steps I’ve already started taking to reset my sleep schedule, and some adjustments I will be making soon to reset my sleep schedule. 

How to Reset Your Sleep Schedule in 5 Steps

Develop a Wind-Down Process

My wind-down process begins when I turn off my tv. I’m not a big tv watcher, but I do love to catch up on some shows in the evening. I’ve begun to turn my tv off at around 11:00 to allow my brain to destimulate. While the tv is off I do some light cleaning of my living room and kitchen. This is when I’d wash any leftover dishes, wipe down countertops and disinfect the sink (I really love waking up to a clean house, so this is kinda my thing). Ideally I’d love to begin this process at 10:00, but baby steps. 

Get Fresh For Bed

This is when I handle all the hygiene stuff and skincare things for nighttime. I brush my teeth, freshen my hair, and take care of my skin. When my hair is out and natural this is when I’d spritz and add product and begin protective styling it for bed. I sleep better when clean, but I am a morning shower-er so depending on the amount of activity during the day it’s not uncommon for me to pop into the shower quickly before getting into bed.

Decompress 

I cannot just pop into bed and expect to sleep. The way my brain is set up I’ll be staring at my ceiling for hours. Instead I need to quiet my brain and body. I’ve started doing light ab exercises before getting into bed. Not intense enough to increase my heart rate but enough to exhaust my muscles a little bit, which helps me to feel tired. I’ll also stretch on the floor in my room while playing soft music. This gives me time to sit and pay attention to how my body is feeling. It also helps my body to feel physically relaxed as stretching releases tension. 

Quiet Down 

At this point I get into my bed and do a devotional and journal a little bit. Nothing too intense but just to allow myself to reset my mind and get some things off of my chest before sleeping on them. Once things are on paper, I no longer feel burdened by them and they’re less likely to disrupt my sleep. 

Phone Away 

My phone keeps me up. Even if I’m not using it, just seeing it triggers my brain to think about all the reasons I should be. So, I put it away. I definitely don’t put it far enough away, but again…baby steps. Once my phone is out of sight, my lights off and my body relaxed, sleep comes easy. 

Currently, this routine (give or take natural hair) gets me to sleep by 12:30. Although that is still far off from my ideal, it’s working for now. I’d love to get to seep by 11:00 and it’ll happen as I continue to make small adjustments. I’ve just started using a sleep app called Pillow. It works in conjunction with my Apple watch and I’ve loved looking at how it breaks down my sleep and shows me how I slept. For a bonus try tracking your sleep with an app. I used Sleep Cycle previously as well and also loved it. 

I hope you found this helpful! Wishing you good luck and safety in these next few weeks! Happy sleeping!

30 compliments for girls that don't mention their bodies blog post by Nicole Eva promoting self love and self confidence in girls

30 Compliments for Girls That Don’t Mention Their Bodies

It’s mental health awareness month and I’m starting my side of the conversation with this little but significant post.

I know that when we do it, there’s no harm intended, BUT we’ve got to stop focusing on the physical when talking to girls (boys too) about their positive attributes. This doesn’t mean you can’t tell your friends or daughters that they look nice…that’s not what I’m saying. Let them know they look nice, and also let them know of other ways they’re beautiful to you.

-Nicole Eva

This does a few things:

One – It helps them to develop not only eyes that see those non physical attributes as equally if not more important than their physical ones, but it also helps them to affirm their strengths in other ways.

Two – It helps you as a person to become conscious of the way you see people. It helps you to develop the skill to see those around you beyond their physical presentation.

I think we need more of that in todays world. And that’s all I’m going to say on that (for now).

Below you’ll find my list of 30 Non-Physical compliments. Take a few, write them down and use them on your friends, kids, students…heck, use them on everyone. Fill this place with love, we need it.

30 Compliments for Girls That Don’t Mention Their Bodies

  1. You are so smart
  2. I love your compassion for others
  3. You’re always so thoughtful
  4. You’re such a leader
  5. You are so strong!
  6. You’re so good at taking care of yourself
  7. I’m so glad I met you
  8. You’re such a great friend
  9. I never get tired of being around you
  10. I love your passion
  11. I love your style!
  12. You’re so good at makeup!
  13. How are you so creative!?
  14. I love how you put others first!
  15. You make me feel important!
  16. You’re so good at making me feel safe.

Little Loves |April

April is over and now we welcome May.

April was…interesting to say the least, but along with it being a month of chaos and heightened emotions, there was a lot in this past month to be loved and that’s what we’re doing today. Today we celebrate the ‘little loves’ of April.

I started April off with a little bit of a room makeover (technically this was the end of March, but it still counts…)

This helped me to not only better utilize the space in my room, but it’s been so pleasant waking up with more space and sunlight each morning. I’ve actually taken to keeping my blackout curtains open during the night (I have blinds, don’t worry) so that I can wake up to a room flooded with sunlight. It’s been doing wonders for my morning motivation.

These three songs have kept me vibing all of April. I’m usually quite varied when it comes to my music tastes, but for the last few months I’ve been very intentional about the messages in the music I’ve been listening to. Mainly because I’m trying to stay in the space of positvity (sorry teen angst playlist).

April was the month of eating breakfast! Now, I know that not usually such a big deal but I’ve gotten out of the habit of eating breakfast and this past month I decided to get back into it. It has helped me stay focused, snack less, and I can even say my mood is more regulated when I have a healthy breakfast. I’ve been enjoying cooking in the morning too, even if it’s just eggs and oatmeal it’s still a nice “done” to have on the list of things I did well in the day.

The weather has been lovely for my area the last few weeks and I have been thankful. It’s funny, before all of this I would notice that a day was a nice day, but never do anything about it. Now, if a day is a nice day I want to spend as much time outside before the sun goes away even if that simply means sitting out on my front steps while scrolling through twitter. When the sun is out, I want to be out.

Along with taking advantage of the nice weather, I’ve learned how to use a OneWheel. My boyfriend bought one a while back and I’ve been quite intimidated by it. But, due to boredom and I guess the need for adventure I’ve learned to ride it. It’s nice because it gives us something to do outside and right in our neighborhood.

When I started writing this list, I kind of struggled to come up with things… but as I went along I realized so many beautiful things happened in April. Things like reconnecting with friends, conversations with family, belly laughter moments and more. There’s beauty everywhere, you really do just have to look for it. I write this now even as my family struggles through some really emotional stuff as we receive sad news about a beloved family member. Even as I sort through emotions surrounding a sick friend. Even in the midst of people around me suffering and crying out for help…even then there’s beauty. I want to be the kind of person to see it everywhere and in everything.

Yes, I’m nervous about what comes with the month of May, but alongside the nervousness I’m going to search for beauty because I know it’s there.

Stay safe friends,

xx Nicole Eva

People are so creative aren’t they? I think that’s one of the things I’ve been realizing over the past few weeks, that people are actually so creative when given the time and motivation to be. After quite a bit of virtual people watching I compiled a list of things people (and myself) are doing to keep the endorphins up during this period of stress and just…abnormal-ness. Some of these items aren’t nesesarily endorphin boosters, but they’ll definitly keep you busy!

36 Things to do while you’re bored at home

  • Make a vision board
  • Jam out to music (check out my Feel Good Playlist post here)
  • Coreograph dances
  • Create a new dish
  • Start a garden
  • Decorate your driveway with chalk
  • Start a blog
  • Start a YouTube channel (check out mine here)
  • Build a workout routine
  • Start biking
  • Start jogging
  • Rearrange your room
  • Rearrange your home
  • Spring clean
  • Read a Book
  • Write an E Book
  • Declutter your home
  • Declutter your car
  • Paint your nails
  • Purge your makeup collection of old expired makeup
  • Clean your make up brushes
  • Do the Big Chop
  • Write letters to friends or family
  • Draw pcitures for your friend’s kids
  • Play video games (personal favorite, ledgend of zelda)
  • Do a legacy challenge on The Sims
  • Start a home project
  • Become a plant mom/dad
  • Virtual movie nights
  • Virtual girls nights (for extra fun, theme it)
  • Virtual game nights
  • Exfoliate them legs (yep, your legs)
  • Do a face mask
  • Have an unplugged day
  • Make your own pasta
  • Catch up with an old friend

Give it a shot. Try one two or more things from this list and keep yourself busy and avoiding feelings of anxiety and stress during this period.

Stay happy healthy and safe!

How to feel beautiful every day cover art

How to Feel Beautiful

You’re beautiful my friend. Why? Because you’re you. It’s really that simple. We don’t always feel that way though, do we?

Answer: No, no we do not.

We all have days where we don’t feel our best, days where we feel out of sorts and out of place. It’s usually on those days that I’ll find myself being pretty harsh verbally with myself. I used to be a pro at picking myself apart and leaving myself feeling like total garbage. Within the last year though, I stopped and started doing something else instead. That something else resulted in a lot less nitpicking, and more acceptance, encouragement and even celebration from me to me.

Here are some things you can do everyday to feel like the beauty you are!

Smile at Yourself

Okay, I know this one sounds weird, but what if I told you it was backed by science. When you smile, the contractions of your muscles tell your brain that you’re happy. When your brain gets those happy signals it releases chemicals that make you feel happy. Did you know that smiling not only makes you feel better, but it can help you to look better too!

A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear.

Find Your Strengths, Write Them Down

We can spend a lot of time criticizing ourselves which results in us feeling worn down and well, not our best. The solution; spend intentional time doing the opposite. Grab a journal or open the notes on your phone and start a list. Come up with five things you love about yourself physically and write them down. This could be your hair, your teeth, your strong legs anything. Once you’ve written that list make another one. With this list, come up with 5 non-physical things you love about yourself. Maybe you love your singing voice or the way you cook. Maybe you love your caring heart for people or your ability to focus on the positive in crazy situations, whatever it is write it down. Once written down take one more step and write them all somewhere you can see them every day. Maybe place sticky notes around your mirror or bedside. Maybe set them as the label of your alarm on your phone or make them your lock screen. You want to be able to see them every day so you can remind yourself every day. The more time we spend speaking and thinking positively about ourselves the more positive we will feel about ourselves.

Take Care of Yourself

It’s just a part of the human condition that we are more considerate and protective of the things we take care of and invest in. I mean just look at the way we protect expensive shoes and even cars…why? Because we understand the investment we put into attaining those things and understand that they are not easily replaced. When we invest time and energy into taking care of ourselves: eating right, working out, taking care of our skin and maintaining our mental wellness we psychologically communicate to our body and minds that we are important and should be protected. Your body, believe it or not, will respond accordingly and subconsciously you’ll start feeling a whole lot better about yourself.

Encourage Yourself

Nothing brings me more joy than to see women supporting women. I love the way we hype each other up on social media or when a friend wears a cute outfit. We are ready to make sure they feel good about themselves, and as a result, they feel beautiful don’t they? Why don’t we do that for ourselves. When you accomplish a goal, celebrate yourself! When you overcome an obstacle, take a moment to tell yourself you did a good job. In reality, it’s kind of about becoming your best friend for yourself. Skin looks good today? Who cares if you’re a little bloated, celebrate that skin! Starting to see some muscle definition in your shoulders tell yourself. Get into the habit of communicating positivity and encouragement to yourself. It does wonders!

Be Real With Yourself

Okay, so maybe you’ve got all of the above steps down to a T but there are still things you’ve got going on that really get in the way of you feeling beautiful. Maybe you’ve struggled with aggressive acne and although you KNOW you’re beautiful regardless, it still takes a toll on your confidence. Maybe even though you’re eating right and working out you really can’t lose the extra weight and it really bothers you. There are legitimate physical barriers that can get in the way of you FEELING beautiful. Theres nothing wrong with wanting a change as long as the change you’re seeking isn’t for validation of the beauty you’ve already got. A flat tummy won’t make you feel beautiful if you’re normally over critical of yourself…you’ll just find something else to hate. But, there could be medical reasons why the steps you’re currently taking aren’t working. I, for example struggle with thyroid issues, so the whole eat right flat tummy thing ain’t gonna work for me on it’s own, and I’m cool with that, it was just good to know. Others react specifically to diary or gluten as far as skin conditions go. If that’s a real struggle for you, theres nothing wrong with seeking out professional guidance to figure out what works for you!

At the end of the day, you’re the only you you’ve got! You’re unique and you are loved. You’re strong and you have value, so here’s a little kick in the butt to start treating yourself that way!

‘Till next time!

Nicole Eva
