My Top 5 Habits For Keeping It Sexy

I get messaged often about how I maintain my physic and what my fitness regimen is, especially after having a baby. I wasn’t sure if I’d “snap back” or how I’d feel about my body when I looked in the mirror postpartum. The God honest truth is… I don’t really have a regimen. What I do have is a few good habits that I strongly believe have helped me throughout the different phases of womanhood including now being somebody’s mama. With these 5 habits incorporated into my regular routine, I feel more confident and sexy in my own skin than ever before.

Here are 5 EASY habits you can incorporate into your regular routine!

1) Devote more time for yourself. Women are BAD ASS! We bear the weight of the world between birthing humans, raising and nurturing them, many of us while also working, being good and present wives, keeping ourselves up and contributing to society/ our communities in other ways. When our responsibilities tend to soak up our very last ounce of energy, we somehow find a way to keep showing up, pushing forward and making it look a lot easier than it actually is! No one can take care of you, like you! In order to be our best for our loved ones, we must prioritize self-care. It is mandatory that we find time to relax, de-stress and frankly treat ourselves to moments of doing whatever it is we need to do to feel more centered. Did you know that stress causes cortisol levels in the body to raise which can contribute to weight gain or the retention of fat? Particularly in our mid-sections?! Taking a moment for yourself to relax can not only lower measurable amounts of cortisol in your body but also reduce your risk for stress-eating which also causes weight gain.

2) Sleep more! Sleep studies show, that individuals who get the optimal amount of 8 hours of sleep nightly, weigh significantly less on average while also reducing their chances for certain ailments. We need to fully recharge our mind and our muscles with sleep. Personally, when I’m tired I’m cranky and it isn’t cute! Beauty sleep is a real thing!

3) Laugh more! It relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after. Laughter boosts the immune system by increasing immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Also, all that contracting of your abdominal muscles is decent core work! A recent study revealed that individuals who laugh often are perceived as more attractive and confident.

4) Expressive recreation! That is physical activity that doesn’t really feel like a workout to you. It can be ANYTHING that you love to do and gets your body moving. Dancing, park strolls, even MORE sex!

5) Drink more… wine! Did you think I was going to say water? Of course you should be drinking water as well. I have a new found love and appreciation for good wine. So much so that I’m launching a wine brand, Pur Noire. Healthline, among others, have reported on the potential health benefits of drinking wine and the run down is as follows: Wine is rich in antioxidants which promotes longevity; it may combat inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation is harmful and may increase the risk of conditions such as heart disease, autoimmune disorders, and certain cancers. Therefore, it’s best to prevent this type of inflammation as much as possible; wine promotes heart health, mental health and healthy gut bacteria which may improve metabolic syndrome markers in people with obesity.

Events & Style: Diner en Blanc Houston #DEBHouston

Yesterday, Sunday November 10, 2019 I attended Le Dinner En Blanc Houston in Downtown Houston’s Water Way at Memorial Park.

I was invited to attend as a VIP/Media partner and although I’d heard of the illustriousness of this event in past years, nothing prepared me for how much fun I was going to have!

About the event

The day of the event, the secret location is revealed to thousands of friends who have all been patiently waiting to learn where “Dîner en Blanc” will take place. Thousands of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space.

DEB Houston 2019 PC @carissastephens

Over the course of the evening, guests experience the beauty and value of their city’s public spaces by participating in the unexpected. Beyond the spectacle and elegance of the dinner itself, guests are brought together from diverse backgrounds by good taste and a love of beauty. Le Dîner en Blanc recalls the elegance and glamor of high French society, and guests engage one another, knowing that they are taking part in a truly magical event. There are no disruptions: no car traffic, no pedestrian traffic—only amazed and astonished looks from passersby observing the scene before them. And participants, like spectators, wonder whether it’s all not a dream.

History: Over 30 Years Ago in Paris…

Launched with just a handful of friends by François Pasquier in 1988, Le Dîner en Blanc® de Paris continues to assemble close to 10,000 guest every year. In 2018 a record 17,000 guests from Paris and around the world gathered at the Esplanade des Invalides to celebrate its 30th anniversary. The French capital’s most prestigious sites have played host the event over the years: The Pont des Arts, the Eiffel Tower, Place Vendôme, the Château de Versailles, the Esplanade de Notre-Dame, the Esplanade des Invalides, the periphery of the Place de l’Étoile, the Champs-Élysées, Place de la Concorde, Le Louvre Pyramid, Trocadéro Esplanade, and the Palais Royal Garden! The Paris police continue to tolerate this ‘wild’ gathering, if not perhaps even wishing they could join in! The creole in me was most satisfied! lol

The night was absolutely perfect. When I tell you that Houston weather was flawless… As we approached the park around 5:45pm, we noticed a clear and beautiful sky which twighlighted at dusk and was the perfect backdrop for the view of downtown Houston. There wasn’t any humidity in the air and the temperature remained comfortably in the 60s.

Walking up to the park, you could hear the second line band playing familiar favorites as guests were greeted at entry. The fashion was something to be noted. Guests bring their own (all white) picnic gear but the VIP/Media area supplied all my food and adult beverage needs.

I stayed on or near the main stage or in the VIP lounge, dancing most of the night! Even better, I got to enjoy the evening with my sister Amber and girlfriends Constance and Elle Mae.

Though the crowd was mixed, one entertainer said it best… “We are here in all white but tonight is about black excellence!” That being said, the nature, demographic and vibe of this event varies from city to city and is probably reflective of the hosting cities local population, I’d imagine! The entertainment was SPECTACULAR with live musicians and DJ on the 1s and 2s. Check out this IG post for some video footage!

Dîner en Blanc International is responsible for developing this secret posh picnic in close to 80 cities in 30 countries around the world with over 130,000 participants.

I definitely look forward to attending this event again next year! For more information, visit

Feature: Classy Living Society Awards Carissa Stephens

Earlier this year I was contacted to do an interview for the Chronicles Too! and subsequently was notified that I would also be receiving an award at the upcoming Red Dress Gala that would be taking place in Downtown Houston and hosted by the owners of Chronicles Too!, Classy Living Society.

Classy Living Society is a multi-faceted women’s community service organization based out of Atlanta, Georgia with a hands-on approach to volunteerism founded by LaShanda Pitts in 2013. The organization has since achieved over 300,000 volunteer hours. The beneficiary of this year’s gala was Sock Out of Poverty, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization organization which provides socks, clothing, and other material goods to men, women and children that are in need or less fortunate. 

As an honoree, it was requested that I arrived several minutes early for press and photos. I was greeted at the door with champagne and the pleasant sounds of a live harp player. There was an instant feeling of sisterhood as over 200 melanated Queens, all dressed in red, entered into the grand ballroom at Le Meridien Hotel in Downtown Houston.

I enjoyed live music from Prodigy and the accompanying sounds of DJ Tay Powers on the 1s and 2s. The event opened with the singing of the negro national anthem led beautifully by Jessica Forest. Comedian Lady Q really helped get the party started with “Beyonce – Formation” vibes, her dancing and her over-sized black diva hat paying true homage to our Houston Queen, Bey. She was hilarious and had everyone laughing throughout the entire program. Brunch was delicious and there was even a second line band! I’m of creole ancestry so you know I’m always down for brass band music! There was such amazing energy during the entire gala!

The event was very well orchestrated, elegant AND absolutely lit all at the same time!!! I’m so grateful that CLS chose Houston as their host city for their prestigious gala this year and came here all the way from Atlanta for a weekend filled with sisterhood, positive vibes and an overflow of Black Girl Magic! 

I was blessed with the distinct honor and privilege to be recognized among several other influential boss women as an award recipient by Classy Living Society at their 6th annual #RedDressGala! The theme “Access Taken” spotlighted women who are pioneers in their fields, who have remained resilient in the face of adversity and who have defied the odds! Women who have not merely waited for access to be granted, but who have found success by designed their lives upon the principle of access taken.

During my speech I couldn’t help but mention the irony in the organization’s abbreviated name also being my initials! CLS! It’s amazing how God aligns you when you allow Him to!

I’m grateful to be able to continually have the opportunity to share my journey and inspirational gems with such gorgeous audiences. Thank you Classy Living Society, the founding sisters (especially Superwoman Founder, LaShanda Pitts) and my family and friends who came to support.

5 Things Motherhood Has Taught Me About Myself

Last weekend I celebrated my 32nd birthday. A new year of life always brings much reflection. I realized how much I’ve learned about myself from my last birthday to now. A lot has changed in my life recently, thus changing how I operate in certain ways. Bringing my daughter, Kamara, into the world last year has helped me to learn a great deal about myself. Becoming a mom has clarified many aspects of my personality and perception of the world. Here are 5 things motherhood has taught me about myself.

I’m extremely protective. As a big sister, I’ve always known that I was protective to a certain extent. Even with my friends I’m somewhat protective. Since becoming someone’s mother, my need to protect is on a whole ‘notha level! At almost 9 months, my daughter is supremely ambitious. She is standing on her own, scaling the ottoman in my living room, expressing a curiosity towards the doggy door and reaching for EVERYTHING! I know I need to let her explore a bit, even stumble and fall… but her gentle topples and shaky stance rocks me to my core! lol I watch her like a hawk during playtime and try as hard as I can to prevent her from hurting herself. The same holds true for my view towards her contact with germs. I hate feeling like she’s exposed to dangers seen and unseen. She’s a tough cookie though so I’m trying not to be so type A when it comes to this.

I love to plan ahead but can thrive on the fly. The Virgo in me loves and frankly demands planning ahead. I need things calendared, to-do lists prioritized by level of importance and a general forecast for the weeks and months ahead. Since becoming a mom, this has in some ways heightened. Mostly due to the fact that I am now responsible for another human and I can’t just get up and go wherever I want to all the time. It takes a lot to make arrangements for the entire or get everyone situated for an activity. Not to mention sometimes calling in my sitter (ie. Mama Pam who is living her BEST retired life and tends to be booked and busy herself!) My house is child proofed and looks a lot like a daycare most of the time so random pop ups make me uncomfortable. However, I try to remain as flexible as possible because variety is the spice of life. I am still open to spontaneous flights of fancy and when called to it, I rise to the occasion.

I’m resilient AF. I have been through a few challenging yet defining moments in my life, but my JOURNEY to motherhood takes the cake. Having endured a pregnancy loss in the past, followed by a challenging pregnancy that left me in the hospital for three months and delivering via an emergency c-section, showed me that I am very strong willed and can handle whatever life throws at me. Did I mention I was admitted back to the hospital postpartum AFTER bringing my baby home?! I stayed overnight with my newborn and husband in the same room that I was an antepartum patient in one night as medical staff monitored my blood pressure because my body was retaining water like a puffer fish. This is caused my blood pressure to become elevated to the point of concern. Through it all, I give God the glory for an ultimately favorable outcome and for molding me through my experience. Of course I had my moments… but true to form, I maintained my joyousness and optimism throughout the most challenging time of my life. “God is with her, she cannot fail.”

I look on the bright side of everything. With my testimony above, I can honestly say that so much good came out of my journey to motherhood. My faith was strengthened and so was my marriage. I got to really see the stuff my relationship was made of. I got to see who around me was really supportive and I got to understand and better appreciate my own strength. I tried to find reasons to laugh and express gratitude as often as possible throughout. My friend said to me jokingly the other day, “Girl, it could be the end of days and you’ll be like – well we might as well enjoy it!” I look at each day as such a blessing, more than ever before. I’ll never take the way the sun feels on my face for granted because I know what it feels like to not have that feeling for three months straight. Watching the seasons change is probably one of the most subtle yet rewarding observations of nature in our human experience. I was in the hospital on this day (first day of fall) last year. If you know me, you know I’ve always been as festive as they come. Oh but now!…

I absolutely love being in my home. I have been intentional about creating a home space with my husband that is rooted in peace, love and joy. We have achieved such a space and I am very grateful for that. I don’t get restless or bored at home. I couldn’t say this about 6 or 7 years ago. Home feels so good. I’m able to entertain and be entertained in my home beyond what I could’ve imagined prior. I used to be such a busy body! I’m so glad I’ve matured to appreciate the little things like cuddling up under a blanket with my sweet little family to enjoy a movie or drinking coffee from my breakfast table while writing for this blog and enjoying the natural sunlight that enters my home. Or sitting in my backyard on the patio set and watching the sun set over our lake while enjoying a glass of wine. These have all become weekly objectives that I love.

Motherhood is everything I dreamed of and more. It has made me a better person. It brings and indescribable amount of love and joy into my heart and home.

3 Easy DIY Hair Masks to Strengthen, Grow and Shine

Earlier this year, had the distinct honor and pleasure to appear as an expert guest on Houston Life TV for two different live television segments. I spoke to DIY natural hair masks in my first segment and heat-less natural hair styling in my second. Here is a recap of the masks I shared and how they’ll help your hair thrive all year long with no extra cost.

Moisture Retention

Ingredients: 1 whole ripened avocado, 2 tbsp pure honey, 2 tbsp coconut oil

Usage: This mask is great for a pre-poo (deep conditioning treatment before shampooing your hair). The avocado is a super food that is deeply nourishing when applied topically to the hair shaft and will deliver massive amounts of moisture from the good fats derived from the avocado. Honey is a natural emollient which further draws in moisture. It also contains proteins and amino acids that fortify the hair shaft to promote healthier, more pliable, well moisturized hair. Coconut oil strengthens the hair and gives it an illustrious shine! Not to mention makes the hair extremely soft.

Instructions: Whip all ingredients together in a food processor (recommended) or a small mixing bowl. Apply evenly to dampened, detangled hair section by section from the root to the tip. Let sit for 30min-1hour under a plastic processing cap. Shampoo with luke warm water following with a regular conditioner and cool rinse to seal the hair cuticles.

Strengthen and Grow

Ingredients: 2 eggs, 4 tbs mayo, 2 tbsp olive oil, approximately 10 drops of tea tree oil, approximately 5 drops of rosemary oil

Usage: Eggs are an incredible source of protein. They help fortify the building blocks of the hair when applied topically and help reduce breakage and shedding. (Real) Mayo is a good source of fat that when combined with the egg, helps create the creamy coating that further penetrates the hair shaft and helps your curls clump together. The moisturizing fat in the mayo is essential to counter the protein and amino acids in the egg, allowing for a well balanced recipe. Olive oil is the carrier oil in this mask that helps bring everything together nicely in addition to it’s nutritive benefits mentioned above in the previous mask. The tea tree oil serves as a natural antiseptic which helps clean the pores in the scalp and reduce product build up, thus promoting healthier growing hair. Rosemary oil has been proven to stimulate hair growth.

Instructions: Add each ingredient one at a time and use a whisk to blend. Apply evenly to dampened, detangled hair section by section from the root to the tip. Let sit for 30min-1hour under a plastic processing cap. Shampoo with luke warm water following with a regular conditioner and cool rinse to seal the hair cuticles.

Smooth and Shine

Ingredients: 1 whole ripened banana, 4 tbsp honey, 4 tbsp EVOO

Usage: Bananas deliver tremendous amounts of vitamin C when applied topically and also increase the hairs life cycle, thus contributing to length retention. I have also found that bananas make my hair more voluminous. Honey helps strengthen and lock in moisture. Olive oil is a household staple for most people. It contains vitamins and minerals that contribute to illustrious well moisturized hair.

Instructions: Whip all ingredients together in a food processor (recommended) or a small mixing bowl. Apply evenly to dampened, detangled hair section by section from the root to the tip. Let sit for 30min-1hour under a plastic processing cap. Shampoo with luke warm water following with a regular conditioner and cool rinse to seal the hair cuticles.

Try one or all of these masks depending on your hair’s needs and let me know how they worked for you! xo

A Love Letter To My Younger Self

Dear Young Queen,

You are MAGIC.

You do not have to bend to anyone’s expectations of you, period.

You can thrive living fully in your passions and will someday be able to monetize them all.

You are worthy of a great love. A love that surpasses what you can even imagine right now… and that love is coming, I promise.

Your voice matters… now and always.

The girls in your circle that you call your friends, will always be your friends. Trust me, they’re as real as they come. You’re lucky.

The few disingenuous stragglers that share a moment of time and space with you will weed themselves out, eventually.

Always trust your intuition.

School is important… but don’t trip about perfect grades. Several of the worlds wealthiest won’t even have a college degree in the future.

Dream baby… don’t let anyone make you feel like being a dreamer is a bad idea.

Remain free-spirited.

Don’t choose things just because they feel like a “safe route.”

Life will throw you some lemons… I’m going to let you know that right now.

But you’ll make lemonade… every single time.

You are stronger than you realize.

Your potential is limitless.

I love you.


Beauty: My Current Self-Care Regimen

Hi beauties! Here is a super quick guide to my beauty and self-care regimen!

Hair: I’ve been consistent with rubbing Jamaican Black Castor Oil my edges because postpartum shedding is real. I massage my scalp weekly. Low manipulation protective styles are a life saver!

Skin: I’ve discovered the importance of using a serum at night. Sdara Skincare Vitamin C Serum in conjunction with their derma roller (used once a week) and my Clarosonic with the brush head formulated for acne prone skin (used daily) is EVERYTHING to my skin. Also, my jade roller depuffs, feels amazing and gives my bone structure a more refined look when used consistently. I wrote a separate blog all about facial rolling that you can read here.

I also use natural beauty products from Origins such as their Checks and Balances cleanser, Ginzing under eye cream, their Charcoal Mask and their Original Skin Resurfacing mask. These are STAPLES.

Body: Lots of dancing and walks in the neighborhood on pretty days. Plus, my daughter is a heavy weight and I burn lots of calories toting her around, seriously. Not to mention going up and down my stairs with her multiple times a day. As far as what I am eating, it’s pretty much a low carb diet. I try to focus on protein and veggies with occasional fruit and grain. Very seldom to I indulge on “white” carbs. I also do not drink sodas with the exception of the occasional diet ginger ale or diet coke. Blueberry Green Tea by Yogi is a great morning cup to help keep your metabolism boosted and is a good coffee alternative.

Inner Glow: Drinking water and staying hydrated, prayerful, grateful and minding my business is truly a winning combo! I also make a point to enjoy me time regularly and I never apologize for it. This may include attending my Monday night Zumba, taking a bubble bath or sitting outside on my patio with a glass of wine. As a new mom, me time is critical. I hope tghis helps! The products listed here are sold in my Amazon store! Get easy access, everything conveniently in one place, secured checkout, and lightning fast shipping when you shop in my store!!! Thank you for reading and I’ll see you soon.

Hair: Updated Wash and Go

Hi beauties. I rarely do wash and gos on my 4b/c natural hair but recently had the opportunity to try the CurlMix Wash + Go System, steps 1-4 which made it SO easy to achieve a pretty wash and go! They have different systems to select from and I chose the lavender scented one for the smell and because the ingredients seemed super moisturizing and compatible with my hair type. I loved this system and I am definitely going to be doing this style more often! After vacation and protective styling, my hair was in need of some TLC. I started on stretched and detangled hair.

Step number 1 – the Pure Aloe Vera Shampoo. I loved how this shampoo smelled and it did a great job clarifying my scalp.

Step number 2 – the Pure Grapeseed Conditioner. This conditioner provided me good slip as I combed my wet hair in the shower.

Step number 3 – the Pure Avocado Moisturizer. This stuff was magic in a bottle. My hair literally felt like it’s thirst was being quenched. lol

Step number 4 – the Pure Flaxseed Gel. The flaxseed gel worked wonderfully, further locking in moisture and giving my natural curl pattern some luscious definition!

Travel: Playa Del Carmen #GirlsTrip

What do you get when you take 10 accomplished women who have all known each other for well over a decade, have been through the ups and downs of life together, who all want the others to live their best life, and place them in a tropical paradise?


This past week I experienced the enormous blessing of being able to travel internationally with my core group of friends… JUST BECAUSE.

This trip stands out to me from all my other travels in many ways. First, I don’t remember the last time I had that much fun for consecutive days in a row.

Second, we were all able to come together to celebrate success! I’d missed a recent girls trip to Vegas because I was pregnant and on bedrest. This trip made up for that x100. All but one of us (who is currently pregnant) were able to make the trip that was planned to simply be a much needed getaway for all of us!

Third, we experienced some very deep and meaningful conversations and walked away all knowing and appreciating each other EVEN more.

We stayed at the Ocean Maya Royale and enjoyed good food and entertainment while there! This resort was great for our girls trip because it is an all-inclusive resort which included multiple dining options (Italian, Asian, Mexican, etc), a breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet, on-demand open bar service from anywhere on the resort, an excellent calendar of events (live shows, pool parties, etc) and has beach access.

The place was quite charming with it’s perfect hues every morning and evening as the sun kissed the palm trees and with it’s random yet friendly wildlife that roamed freely! We utilized a travel agent for our flight and resort bookings and to stay organized with payments and planning.

We independently booked a private yacht which sailed briefly due to choppy water from Riviera Maya!

We partied hard on that boat once we got in calm waters! We also took a swim from the boat to a shallow area near where we anchored our boat. We had a full wait staff who served up food and drinks until our hearts were content and there was absolutely a ton of twerking to our #HotGirlSummer playlist!

Following our yacht party and after a day of rest, the resort concierge made sure we were taken care of when it came to the type of excursion we wanted to experience. We chose a half-day adventuresome option which involved us diving, zip-lining, snorkeling and swimming! Aventuras Mayas was the perfect tour company. Our tour guide Alan was personable and knowledgeable. He guided us through 3 different cenotes: a ‘lagoon’, a ‘tavern’ and an ‘open’ cenote. I enjoyed various elements of all 3! We were also fed an authentic Mexican lunch, buffet style while on the tour! Sooo much fun (and delicious)!!!

As a child, I had a bad snorkeling experience in Hawaii in which I almost drowned. I told myself it just wasn’t an activity that I was interested in after that. It was on my “blocked list” as my friend Jennifer would say. lol However, I am so glad I was open to this experience while on this trip. It was so relaxing floating in that water (my friends and I gliding through the water like a school of fish) and I can now say I love snorkeling! Wow!

Zip-lining and diving into the water was simply EPIC. Fun is an understatement!

The tavern cenote was nearly a spiritual encounter, just experiencing the earth in a way that I never had before. It felt like a sacred place. In fact, the local people of that area would historically use the tavern cenote as their actual place of worship and for healing of the mind, body and soul.

Most of my outfits (my favorites) including swimwear were purchased on Shein, but I also found Amazon and Fashion Nova helpful. I have linked some of my ‘lewks’ to my store for you.

I got all my life dancing, laughing and making new memories with my girlfriends and can’t wait until the next #GirlsTrip!

Beauty: The 411 On Derma-Rollers

This season, I’ve really stepped up my skin-care regimen. I’ve been trying to be more consistent with treatments and applying healthy products formulated to meet my skins specific needs.

I’ve been learning more and more about the benefits of derma-rollers and the different kinds. I have two, a jade roller and a micro-needle roller. Here is what I learned about each of them.

Jade Roller Benefits

  • Use after washing face in the morning to really wake your face up and get your day started, at night before bed to relax, or both!
  • Reduces inflammation and puffiness of the skin, including reducing the appearance of under eye circles (especially if your roller is cold).
  • Stimulates the lymphatic system and blood circulation.
  • Easy and relaxing way to pamper yourself on a daily basis. For those into crystals, the jade stone is also known for purity, gentleness and love. People use jade stone to invite harmonious, balanced and protective energy.
  • This roller feels amazing. Get you a jade roller, sis! Click here to get yours in two business days!

Micro-needling Benefits

  • This tool can be used once or twice weekly as a very effective skin rejuvenation treatment and should be cleaned in an alcohol solution before and after each use.
  • Effectively reduces acne.
  • Brightens complexion, reduces scars from acne, sun spots and aging.
  • Tightens pores, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, and allows for skincare products to penetrate more deeply.
  • Reduces the signs of aging by increasing collagen production. Fine lines are noticeably reduced with consistent use.
  • Balances moisture levels naturally. It is especially ideal for oily skin.

I’ve added a Vitamin C serum to my night time regimen and I love how effective it’s been with the help of my derma-roller. My skin is noticeably more even and brighter, especially after it’s postpartum freak out. I had terrible acne and severe dryness before the regimen I am on now. I am gratefully privy to this information about derma-rollers and happy to share it with you!

I have partnered with Sdara Skincare to #giveaway one Derma-roller + Vitamin C Serum, my absolute skincare addictions since I got my hands on them. Winner will be announced next week. Enter Here To Win! or click the image below.

Thanks for reading! xo -Riss
