Hi! My name is Maria, and I am proud 30 something woman of color with Southwest roots living in Chicago. The themes of my blog are about discovering and living your true self in a world that discourages it. This can be from big topics like body positivity, mental health, and world events to everyday topics like dating, comedy and not fitting the mold to hobbies like running, dating, and where I can find time to nap.

Let the melanin magic begin.
