Lucy’s Pearls Travels: New Orleans, LA

Times are stressful for everyone, everywhere. The last thing people want to do is focus on the realities of life. We’re all in search of healthy ways to mentally escape the daily grind. Luckily, escapism comes in many forms. Some people play sports, have kids or listen to music as a form of escape, I like to travel.

Although I haven’t be able to travel as of late, it’s still one of my favorite pastimes. So when two of my friends planned a trip to New Orleans (a place that I’ve longed to visit forever), I decided to tag along for the ride.

New Orleans (or NOLA as it is affectionately called), is a charming city. So many of my favorite instagrammers have documented their travels to NOLA and I couldn’t bear a single person going again without me experiencing the sights for myself.

Despite being unbearably hot and humid, I enjoyed my short stay in the beautiful New Orleans.

Lucy’s Pearls Travels: Savannah, GA

All work and no play make for a very overwhelmed and uninspired Lucy Pearl. Equipped with a laundry list of things to do and see, I decided to take an impromptu midweek trip to Savannah, Georgia for a few hours. I was craving time to recharge and to appreciate life.

Due to time constraints, I wouldn’t realistically have been able to appreciate everything Savannah had to offer but I made the most of my trip. I ate and did my share of sight-seeing and people-watching. That was more than enough.

Lunch at Cucina Asellina

It’s quite embarrassing how long it’s been since my last post. Even more so that I rarely have outfit posts anymore. No lie, I want to toss my entire wardrobe in the trash. I’m craaaaving a whole new closet. More shoes, less clothes. More quality pieces. I know exactly what I want it to look like but, lack of funds. I am so poor man, lol.

Give Me a Break

I’ve been toying with the idea of whether or not to take a week off from blogging.

I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “What do you need a break for? You’re not even working right now.” True. But every so often (more often than “so often”), I get into a bit of blogging rut. Not because I lack content to write about, but because I just don’t want to write. And I honestly can’t tell you WHY that is. It just is. This has never happened to me so early in the year but I will say, whenever I’m going through a transitional phase, it is difficult to focus. And that’s as best as I can explain it.

The idea of deserting my blog for a week seems kinda crazy. But maybe it’s what I need in order to recharge and post with enthusiasm again.

Weekend at a Glance: Do What Makes You Feel Alive #83

If you’re familiar with my blog, you are well aware that I change my hairstyle quite often. This past weekend was no different. I’ve been wanting to update the color in my hair for a while now. I finally did it and the results have grown on me. My hair is now a few shades of brown, ombre style. I’ll probably go a little brighter eventually but this is it for now.

Weekend at a Glance: Friendsgiving #82

friendsgiving

After being emotionally drained from watching The Best Man Holiday, I headed over to my cousins to replenish my soul.  She forgot to mention in her brief text invitation that her “dinner” had a theme. I’d never heard of the term Friendsgiving prior to this party but what a novel idea. Not really surprising to me; my cousin loves to throw fancy gatherings. And I’m always here for them.

Weekend at a Glance: Verb is My Favorite #80

You know those days when there’s so much to do that you don’t really want to do anything? That’s pretty much how I felt this weekend.

We had our annual Halloween party at work with the kids. This was probably the largest turnout. The kids and parents alike had a lot of fun.

Weekend at a Glance: Pt 2–Taste of Smyrna #2

I love the South. One of the things I really love about the South is the family oriented atmosphere. There’s always something to do to get the kiddies involved and active and keeping the adults young at heart. I find that the city of Smyrna always has events that cater to the family. On Saturday, I attended The Taste of Smyrna which was held at the Village Green. Admission was free and food samples ranged from $.50 to $4. Not bad considering all the restaurants that were resprenting there.
