It's Christmas Eve, y'all! I have loved Christmas since I was a kid. Celebrating the birth of Jesus and spending time with friends and family are what I look forward to the most. During this time of year, I like to watch feel good movies and transport myself into other worlds in the theater. Since the latter isn't an option,…

Y'all, we made it to December. I was a newly minted 30 at the start of this year and I had all kinds of plans. I was going to Martha's Vineyard, Nashville, Mexico, Missouri and Hawaii. I was determined to grow my writing business and land a byline in Vanity Fair. I had so much to do. And then, COVID-19…

From now through the end of December, I'm reviving the…

Kelundra Recommends 10.3.2020: Hispanic Heritage Month Edition Pt. 2

Last week, I published the first of a two-part series celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. The recommendations continue this week with a list of great sitcoms, an awesome cocktail recipe and my favorite Spotify playlist. This is the perfect way to escape that debate debacle. Get into it!

Kelundra Recommends 09.25.2020: Hispanic Heritage Month Edition Pt. 1

It's Hispanic Heritage Month and this week's recommendations are rooted in the Latin community. This is especially important to me, because just last week, a nurse/whistleblower named Dawn Wooten reported that brown asylum seekers in ICE detention centers were receiving illegal hysterectomies. This news came a couple of months after another whistleblower reported that children in immigration detention were being…
