Black Southern Belle

Hey everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to share my feature (linked in the last paragraph) on Black Southern Belle (BSB) with AKCESS!

I was so excited when the creator of BSB, Michiel Perry, reached out to me a few months ago asking me if I wanted to be featured on her blog. I eagerly accepted the offer. I mean, who wouldn’t?

So to Michiel, thank you for believing in me! Thank you for wanting to acknowledge my work and share your platform with me to allow others to get to know what AKCESS is all about!

To my friends & followers, thank you for believing and supporting me along this journey! You guys are pretty awesome!

Here is my feature on Black Southern Belle! Be sure to like, comment, & share! I always want to hear what you guys are thinking!

I am forever grateful. 


Doodle & Stumps

Hey friends!! I wanted to take the time to create this post to show my gratitude. It’s always important to thank others when they help you, but sometimes it’s more important that you build others up and encourage others as they share their talents and gifts! I want to shout out the lovely and very talented Kimbie Noble! Kimbie created this perfect little doodle of me for AKCESS! This was a gift that amazed me and I am still blown away to this day. I’m not only in awe of her tremendous talent, but her kindness and willingness to produce such fab work. So, THANK YOU Kimbie from the bottom of my heart!

Here’s the original photo (produced from LMP)

Beside every good woman, there is an awesome partner. This is the case with Kimbie and her husband! If you would; direct your attention to my very super cute and convenient Stump! Yes, it’s called a Stump! Kevin Noble created this super useful product and shared one with me! I have found that a Stump is a product that every tablet/smartphone owner needs.

As advertised, the Stump is “ergonomically designed to be an adaptable stand for your iPad, tablet, e-reader, and smartphone.”  It is a very lightweight accessory. It’s made from a foam material which makes it easier for use while lounging.  It’s travel friendly so you can use at the office, in the car, or even while at the park.  Super Stump tablet stands can be purchased here and they come in several different colors such as black, red, and royal blue! The color of the product pictured is sea glass.

Again, I can not thank Kim and her husband enough for being so generous and so awesome to me! They truly believe in my vision and that means everything to me!  Be sure that you check out the website for Stump and FOLLOW Kimbie on her social media page!  Enjoy!




Thank you Subscribers!

I am still in awe that in only a little over a month now, I have hit more than 50 subscribers to the blog. That’s 50 people who have signed up to receive alerts to when I post! The most exciting part of this is that they aren’t mostly family and close friends! It’s 50 subscribers who enjoy and support my vision and what I have to say! Thank you for every like, comment, and share. YOU have helped me reach this first milestone of 50! Whether you think “It’s just 50.” or you’re like me and think “Yes! 50 subscribers!”, the number has me excited and feeling extremely blessed!

I told my social media followers that I would do something special for my 50th email subscriber and I am a woman of my word.

Thank you, as well as, congratulations are in order to the lovely Aleshia Ford for being my 50th subscriber to AKCESS! I hope that your Starbucks card has made its way to you and you enjoy a drink or two on me!
