For most of my young adult life, things went as planned. Got my bachelors. Got my masters. Met a guy. Got a job. Blogged professionally as a creative writer on the side. Lived in a few different metropolitan cities on the East Coast immersed in several amazing different cultures, languages + communities, while simultaneously flourishing a few amazing opportunities; and somewhere between I want it and I got it, became a mom.
What you should know about me is that I’m far from perfect. I make mistakes. I’m way too hard on myself; which leads to unnecessary stressing. I likely drink too much wine; cue the relaxation from stress. I’m moody. I have days where I feel extremely overwhelmed with life, but that’s also the reason why I produce some of my best writing + art. I’m brutally honest. I’m sarcastic AF. I suffer from a tiny bit of postpartum depression.
But what you should also know about me is that I strive for greatness regularly + productively. I’m humble and accept whatever life throws at me. I’m a free spirit. I’m creative. I love all of me. I’m loyal. I’m a feminist and have been known to break from the societal norm while challenging my own belief system of what a woman should be. I drink water, to balance out the wine. I’m authentic, adventurous, quirky + fun on the days I’m not moody. I’m transparent, I’m real; yet private. I love being a new mommy + partner to my best friend of 9 years.
“I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best.
The subject I want to better.” -Frida Kahlo
What started out as an entertainment + lifestyle blog back in 2011, pslovecharli.com has since renovated into something more beautifully minimalistic as I continue to evolve through life’s precious milestones.
I’m committed to inspire women daily + abundantly. The goal here is to curate a no-judgment space that motivates women to live out their absolute best life: let’s pursue our dreams, reach our goals, obtain a habit for self-care, flourish our businesses, stimulate growth, chat about general life highs/lows, check in with our well-being + mental health — and enjoy the challenges of mommy hood.
Over the past few years, I had the pleasure of living out my dreams while a student of academia. Originally from the rich soils of Mississippi, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications from Jackson State University (2010), and a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Film & Digital Media from Howard University (2013). During my matriculation through graduate school, I had the opportunity to intern in the creative + music departments at the corporate headquarters of BET Networks. I then spent two summers living in Brooklyn, NYC interning at Lower Eastside based Entertainment PR firm, Brandsway Creative. Alpha Kappa Alpha is what I rep. Gamma Rho, Spring 2010.
As a freelance publicist and social media manager, I had the opportunities to work with a range of creatives including southern indie Hip Hop artists Slimm Pusha (ATL) and Chuck Tee (MS), triple threat R&B music sensations, SuperJay (Oklahoma City, OK) and Tyler P. Brooklyn, NY based creative clothing company, NO MAYO, and Washington, DC based Haute Hair Extensions.
Additionally, under the Tara Thomas Agency I worked for clients: VH1’s Love & Hip Hop ATL reality star Karlie Redd, Bravo’s Real Housewives Of ATL Mama Joyce & Sweden born pop star, MIZGIN.
Currently blooming in South Florida on the tropical + exotic metropolis of Miami, FL with my gender-neutral named loving family, 8 month old, Wynter Christian and partner, Shannon. I’m the owner + artist behind the fiber art bohemian shop, WYNTER MINT.
Above all, I’m human and I love God.

Hi Soror, your blog is amazing. I am just getting started and I can learn a lot from you and all your works. I love how you called JSU, “Mississippi’s Urban University”.

Excellent web site you have got here.. It’s difficult to find quality writing like yours nowadays. I seriously appreciate people like you! Take care!!
This blog was… how do I say it? Relevant!! Finally I’ve found something which helped me. Appreciate it!
May I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody who actually knows what they are talking about online. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people must look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you certainly have the gift.
ciao! luvFAB blog.
My dear and beautiful Charli, I want to thank you so very much for liking my post on my blog, and for following it. I reward those who follow my blog by creating a post dedicated just to them (along with others who do the same), and so look for your name and blog URL in one of my future posts. The number of followers at my blog is steadily increasing, and so I’ll get around to posting you as soon as I can!!! Have a blessed, peace-filled day.

I blog often and I seriously thank you for your content. Your article has truly peaked my interest. I’m going to bookmark your blog and keep checking for new details about once a week. I subscribed to your RSS feed too.
I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.
What a lovely compliment to have you following Shadows.
Dear Charli, thanks for following LIFE – AS I SEE IT. I too majored in communications at San Jose State Univer. and worked in the film industry (many years ago). Also, I have a niece who graduated from Howard in ’04 – what a great place to continue one’s education. I wish you the best of luck to go along with your many talents.
You need to take part in a contest for one of the most useful websites on the internet. I’m going to recommend this web site!
I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
