I did it. Two videos down for the month of January. I’m really proud of myself for keeping my word. If you haven’t seen my first video for this blog, see it here. Now, onto the other video I was working on.
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.
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.
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.
This statement couldn’t be a further exaggeration of the truth. Well, let me clarify. I’m neither player nor extreme blogger.
As a blogger, I take in a lot of content from fellow style bloggers. Most of that content is too good to keep to myself. I wrote about a few of my favorite fashion bloggers a few years ago and since then, I’ve added/replaced some of them. To me, these personal style bloggers do a great job not only with their personal style but being able to let their personalities shine through as well. There’s only so many style blogs you can read before your eyes cross from seeing the same trend and handbag on every blogger’s page. Then there are style bloggers whose life stories are interwoven beautifully into their posts, making the visit to their site a pleasant one.
7 Female Style Bloggers You Should Know
1. Frédérique Tietcheu, I Go By Frankie: I’ll be honest…In my head, I dress like Carrie Bradshaw. But really, I dress like a school teacher who’s rebelling. Frédérique, aka Frankie, is like Carrie Bradshaw in the 70s. Something about her smile seems purely genuine through her photos. This Parisian is funky-fab and I can dig it.

You know that feeling you get when you leave the hair salon with freshly styled hair. Your self-esteem is on fleek! There’s not a cloud in the sky, birds seem to be singing a melodic song, people are laughing and carrying along. You look good and no one can steal your joy.
I took these shots in December, thinking I was going to write something about restarting for the New Year. That’s not really what I want to write about at all. I want to talk about winning.
