There are certain luxuries one cannot afford when unemployed. Leisure shopping is one of those things. Luckily, I got a great opportunity to partner with Zappos.com and received some amazing goodies.
This Winter has been so wonky. One day I’m wearing a coat with layers of clothing underneath, the next day I’m in a sleeveless tank. It makes no sense. On one of those “nice” days, I asked one of my friends, Derek, to take some pics of me. He’s an awesome photographer and I was just hoping to get some of that awesome rubbed off on me.
So very proud of my friend Krystal Knight of The Feisty House for starting her business, The Feisty Society Clothing Company. I finally got to wear mine when I broke out of the house yesterday during Snowmaggedon. I’ve watched Krystal transition within the blogging community and I’m really really proud of her. Everything she sets out to accomplish comes to fruition by her dedication and hard work. She has done so many great things so far and has many more in store.
West-Indian people are some of the most intriguing and amusing folks I know.
You need the truth? Ask someone from the islands.
Speaking of truth, there are some things that Haitians, in particular, do, that really give me pause.
My friend Jana is here celebrating her birthday so I treated her to lunch at my favorite place, West Egg. Happy early birthday, Jana!!!! Lets get this grown up turn up.
I colored my hair a few weeks ago and I never really shared that journey with you all. Shame on me. My girl Tammi Dotson (at Salon Saison) has been straightening my hair all year. She does a fab job, I might add. Now we all know a trip to the salon is an all day thing, right ladies? I actually took the day off to get my color, lol. That big of a deal.
Yesterday I had the best Thanksgiving dinner EVER. I was super shocked to find out that it was all made by a man. Not to say that men can’t cook. It was so “slap your momma” good that I assumed a woman made it. Boy, was I wrong. And now I want to take cooking lessons from him and/or marry him.
It’s always been on my to-do list to attend a professional sporting event. I got that opportunity on Wednesday. Awesome part is, the Atlanta Hawks won! I’m a good luck charm.
Lately, I’ve been clinging to the same articles of clothing. As the weather gets more brutal, I care less about being “cute” and more about being comfortable and even more basic. I’m completely and positively obsessed with all things black, white and tan. I’ve always adored color but now I’m leaning more towards making it an accessory and not the main sha-bang, ya know?
I’m not sure what I was thinking at the time. I can’t really blame this experience on being young. This was only a month ago. I knew better.
Ladies……..cover your butt when you wear tights, leggings or in my case, faux leather pants. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a little more cushion, cover it up. It’s not cute. And if it’s winter time, your ass will freeze.
