One of my childhood friends recently moved back to Atlanta temporarily. She’s one of those genuine friends that really isn’t easy to come by these days. And one of the few people that I can truly say has been true to herself through all of her years. We got to chatting about the ups and downs of entrepreneurship, when an idea sparked to start something called The Pay Black Movement.
I waited until the week before Christmas to book my trip to LA. I wouldn’t recommend that to anyone, but I’m glad I booked it. What better way to end the year than in sunny Los Angeles!
On a whim, I decided to drive to Nashville. From Atlanta, it’s only a three and a half hour commute. We took the scenic route through Chattanooga and it was a sight to see. I’ve always wanted to visit Nashville and it was worth the trip.
I’ve gotten the travel bug and I’m not stopping now. Next on my list of places to visit was Chicago. Although it was a great trip, I didn’t have nearly enough time to explore all the city had to offer.
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.
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.
One of my many favorite things to do is to visit museums. I love history. What I love more is Black history. So when I heard that the Ebony Fashion Fair exhibit was coming to the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA), I didn’t hesitate to volunteer.
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.
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. I did get some FREE pampering services in the morning of, thanks to one of the sponsors, StyleSeat. Image credit: Tastemaker Magazine
