Last May, at the beginning of the pandemic; made a concerted effort to rebuild my life 🧰. Hated my bull🤬 corporate job & longed 4️⃣ something to bring back my creative side 👩🏽‍🎨.

Sitting down to color my hair 👱🏾‍♀️ for the first time in months, thought to grab my iPad & film 🎥. As a result, created my first YouTube video. 😱

Being a YouTube subscriber since 2008; longingly watched 💻 many of the now famous influencers 🤩.

  • Nikkie Tutorials
  • Jackie Aina
  • Wayne Goss
  • Alicia Ashley
  • Kandee Johnson
  • Savannah Sylver
  • Pixiwoo/Real Techniques

Listened as each recalled their “Rebuild Your Life” story🤹🏽‍♂️.

As a makeup artist, watching those low budget 🤭 tutorials, I yearned to create my own 🙍🏽. However, video editing was not as simple as it is today🥳


Staring into the tiny iPad camera lens, I was crazy nervous 🥵 but confident in what I was saying 😃 ! Put my shy nature aside, took it back old school 😎 by filming on my bed & just did it. Ultimately, what I had been terrified of 👻 for over 1️⃣0️⃣ years was easier than I thought 🤸🏽‍♀️.

Spent the remainder of 2020 learning EVERYTHING 👩🏽‍🏫 about creating content & building a family/audience 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦. Consequently, have been on a steep learning 👩🏽‍🎓 curve of video editing, website building, social media education & promotion.

All while being a single mother of an 8️⃣ year old 👦🏽 with ADHD. Having to help him learn virtually 💻 for the first time & figuring out medication 💊 ➕ therapy 👩🏽‍⚕️. It has been exhausting 🥴 but in some ways FUN 💃🏽!


Rebuild Your Life Month 2021, has me thinking about the many ideas 💡 to move AB-FAB Designs forward 🔮.

  • Posting & Content Consistency 📅
  • Audience Interaction 👭🏽👫🏽
  • Influencer Partnerships 🤝
  • Cultural Moments 🌎
  • Educational Experiences 🎓
  • Expanding Personal/Corporate Services 💣

With the world still so uncertain 😷, the next 6 months will be finding true joy 🌻🌈☀️❣️. Remembering FEAR 😬 & doing what others expect is NO WAY TO LIVE!

That’s what kept me in corporate America 👩🏽‍💼 for 20 years to long 😩. I now know self reflection 🧘🏽‍♀️ ➕ self care 🛀🏽 IS my future & the future of AB-FAB Designs 💯.
