10 Stellar Internship Tips

It’s been almost three months since my summer internship at Caren West PR ended. Since then, my life has literally been a juggling experiment. After I quit my corporate job last December, I didn’t know what I was going to do. My fervent prayer was that I would have a profession that challenge me. When I thought God wasn’t listening, I realized that He gave me exactly what I asked for and more.

Cirque du Soleil – Amaluna

My first introduction to Cirque du Soleil was in college. I saw Alegria. I enjoyed it so much that I bought the soundtrack. If you’ve ever been to a show, you know that it’s something so fascinating, you’d just have to see it for yourself.

#WeLoveATL Pop Up Gallery at Ponce City Market

Sometimes, social media can lead to more problems than necessary; other times, it is opportunity waiting to happen. What I love the most about social media is that it allows you to communicate with people who you’d probably never meet on your own. How crazy is it that a single hashtag can unite people across the world? Well my world got a little smaller when I started using #weloveatl on my Instagram posts.

Lucy’s Travels: Lagos, Nigeria 2012

Yesterday was my bestie boo’s two year wedding anniversary. It’s been two years since my first visit to Africa. This post is two years LATE. I kept procrastinating because I didn’t really know how to process that amazing experience. But now is a good a time as any to share with you all the beauty that I saw in Lagos, Nigeria.

Life List

stone mountain

“To dare is to do … to fear is to fail.” John Goddard

There once lived a young adventurer named John Goddard. When he was fifteen years old, he decided that he would live his life in an unconventional and unforgettable way. There were many things that he wanted to accomplish so he pulled out a legal pad and created a life list. In this life list, he set some seemingly impossible goals; 127 of them, to be exact. He didn’t want to grow up into the adult that wished they did things in their youth. Now I wouldn’t know about this man had I not been reading The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson so I won’t take the credit.

When it came to dream setting, John didn’t take the easy route. He set goals that were daring. His ‘to do list’ would make any of us cringe. I mean, it takes a bold person to kayak down the Nile River. And that was the first thing he did. Later in life, he was called “the real-life Indiana Jones” by the LA Times. Talk about living a life of fearlessness!

When asked how he was able to hang on to his dreams, he simply replied: “Wonderful role models and setting deadlines. And I never give up on a dream.”

So I was motivated to create my own working life list. This list consists of things I’ve already accomplished (in red). I do have a daring spirit and John inspired me to dream bigger. So here goes.

B Fab Awards 2014

I don’t think I mentioned it on here but I was nominated for Best Lifestyle Blogger by Tastemaker Magazine for the second annual Bloggers Fashion + Beauty Awards. What a surprise! This past Sunday was the award show and I had a blast. I really wasn’t going in expecting to win anything so I’m glad because I didn’t, lol. I did get some FREE pampering services in the morning of, thanks to one of the sponsors, StyleSeat.

Apple Picking Fun

Saturday, a good group of friends and I migrated to the North Georgia mountains in Ellijay, Ga for some apple picking fun. There are so many activities to do during the Fall season that I haven’t been able to cross off my bucket list so I’m glad when my friend Johane invited me on this trip.
