The lights grew dim as wristbands began to illuminate the arena. A voice low, yet robust filled the atmosphere. Women excitedly cheered on as they recognized the familiar voice speaking. I could barely hear what she was reciting over the roaring applause. And then, like a vision of a burning sun, she rose from within the stage. We all lost our minds! It took me a second to realize that I was watching Oprah Gail Winfrey walk on the stage. Tears began to well in my eyes as it hit me: I was seeing Oprah in the flesh.
So are you sick of me telling you who’s coming to town yet?! I hope not. Because….
The Dr. Oz Show is making Atlanta’s WSB-TV its new home!
Starting Monday, September 8th, The Dr. Oz Show will air at 3pm on WSB-TV channel 2. We were first introduced to this charming man through Oprah Winfrey (because she just knows all the best people). And since then, his syndicated daytime show has been making great strides on the airwaves.
Oh but wait, there’s more. If you’re in the Atlanta area, you don’t want to miss the “Bringing Healthy Back with Dr. Oz” health expo, presented by USANA on September 13th at the Downtown Hilton.
I’m always trying to find ways to challenge myself as a writer. It’s rare for me to call myself that as I don’t see it in me often. Doing challenges, reading the thoughts of others or just jotting random ideas down all help my writing efforts.
Writing is an important activity I think we all have to do. It can be exhausting trying to keep up with all the thoughts running through your mind. Get it all out.
Here’s a writing challenge on the blog From a Wild Flower that looks fun.
By the end of the challenge (or throughout the challenge, if you like), come back to this post and let me know how it’s coming along!
We interrupted your amazing Saturday plans to bring you a special message….
OPRAH IS COMING TO ATLANTA NEXT FRIDAAAAAAAAY!!!!
No one will be getting a car (I don’t think) but she will be in town for two days to inspire the masses to live the life you want. And the best part? I have a pair of tickets for you and a friend to attend!!!!!
*Insert Oprah sing/song scream*
Last Sunday, I attended the Heat Free Hair brunch, hosted by the lovely Alex Elle. If you’re unfamiliar with this charming young lady, then you really need to update your social media pages. She has wooed us with her words as a writer and gained our respect for always being so transparent and positive. Alex Elle is the epitome of grace .
Back to Heat Free Hair. Now, I absolutely hate doing my hair. I’m also not a huge fan of weaves because I don’t think I look like myself in them. I love my kinky-coily hair but if it could be bigger, I’d just die. So when I found out about a company that allows beautiful natural girls to wear natural extensions, I was intrigued. I mean, look at the versatility of this hair!

I was trying to make that rhyme. Humor me, please. Anyway, as you can see, my last post was three weeks ago. The powers that be might as well confiscate my domain name. It’s been some years since I’ve taken this long to post. Forgive me. Now allow me to be a bit self-absorbed for a moment in order to update you all on my life.
The last few days have been nothing short of a magnificent blur. So I started my new internship with Caren West PR on Wednesday and boy, they did not hesitate to get us to work. And I love it. So far, the experience has been more than I could have imagined. There are four total Publicity Assistants and we’re all surprisingly Taurses (as is our boss, Caren West).
I’ll write more about what I’m learning along the way but I just wanted to drop in with a weekend note. I also wanted to apologize in advance for any sporadic posts to come. Still getting a hang of this new schedule.
Eat, drink and be merry.
