#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.

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.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

My bestie was in town last week and we both experienced something new: baseball. After many years of living in Atlanta, neither of us had ever attended a Braves game. So when the opportunity presented itself, we surely took up the offer.

Where in the World is LucyPearl… 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.

Lucy’s 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 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.

Lucy’s Travels: New York City

Whether you take a trip to a neighboring city or abroad, travelling broadens so much of your perspective on life. Travelling exposes you to cultures that you couldn’t possibly experience by simply watching television. Not to say that you can’t learn about cultures right in your own backyard but it is a magnificent experience once you venture out.

I’ve always found aspects of myself in others while travelling. Like attracts like, right? Connecting, listening to stories and observing have always made me feel alive. On this trip to New York, I was able to run into quite a few amazing individuals who made my trip worthwhile. Thank you Channing, Daphne, Cindy, Taniel, Irveline, Christiana, Derrel, Krystal, Cynthia, Monisha, Aisha and Ulysses for showing me a good time.

Beside still waters

I have the opportunity to attend the Atlanta Film Festival this year (March 28 – April 6) and I’m so excited about all of the magnificent productions and talented filmmakers! I perused all of the trailers to scope out which films I would see. From the moment I saw the trailer for Beside Still Waters, I knew it would be a hit. Sometimes you just know, you know?

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.
