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.

Layers: Winter is Coming

I haven’t even been outside yet and I know it feels like doom. That’s what Winter is: sadness, the end, hibernation. I mean, if you want to look at it on the bright side, it’s a time for preparation and renewal as well. But today, it’s miserably overcast. A crisp and dreary and day calls for layers. Lots of them.

I completely forgot about these photos my dear friend Channing (of Channing in the City) sent to me from my visit to New York early this year. Yes, 8 short months ago. This year has flown by so quickly! I’m ready for it to be over but ill prepared. And one of those things I’m not prepared for is Winter.

#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 Pearls Travels: Lagos, Nigeria

Yesterday was my bestie boo’s two year wedding anniversary. It’s been two years since my first visit to Africa in 2012. 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.

Weekend at a Glance: B Fab Awards 2014 #97

I don’t think I mentioned it on here but I was nominated for Best Lifestyle Blogger by Tastemaker Magazine for the second annual (B Fab) 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.

Weekend at a Glance: Apple Picking Fun #96

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.

Where in the World is Lucy Pearl… Diego?

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.
