Allison Rhee of Flower Crown Society

I first fell in love with flower crowns a year ago when I came across them on Instagram. Nowadays, they are all the rave. But there was a particular type of crown that I was completely enamored with and I needed to know who made them. Little did I know, the creator lived right here in Atlanta.

I reached out to her via her Etsy page asking to virtually interview her. I hoped one day in the future, we’d be able to meet up for tea, if I was lucky. Last weekend, in an effort to occupy my time, I stopped by the Root City Market Pop Up Shops. By pure chance, the creator of those lovely flower crowns happened to a vendor. I was STOKED. What an amazing stroke of luck to run into her in person.

I’m so excited to bring to you my latest artist feature, Allison Rhee of Flower Crown Society.

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.

Color Me Atlanta

For Colored Girls Who Could No Longer Stand the Cold. Yes, that was us on Sunday. Me, four girls and 12 colorful polka-dotted balloons.

You attract who you are

It’s crazy that I’m learning the lessons even when I don’t seek instruction. Sometimes the Universe seeks to remind you in the most random of ways why you are here and what mark you’re supposed to leave before you are gone.

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.

Spring, baby, I missed you

Polar vortex, we bid you adieu. Spring has finally come to reclaim its proper place. My limbs, mental state and the entire United States are forever grateful.

I don’t know about you but I pretty much want to be naked already. But since that’s not necessarily acceptable yet, there are a few items I’m looking forward to this season. I thinking I’ll go girly-glam. Sheers, pastels, neons and slingbacks. Whether that will happen or not, only time will tell.

Here are some Spring styles I’m thirsting after.

Zappos shopping spree

There are certain luxuries one cannot afford when unemployed. Leisure shopping is one of those things. Luckily, I got a great opportunity to partner with Zappos.com and received some amazing goodies.

Weekend at a glance: margarita’s and puma’s #85

Church means something so different to me as an adult. Growing up, I couldn’t wait to go because it meant seeing my friends. In high school and college, I felt obligated to go. Now as an adult, “church” is wherever I experience God. These days, when I do attend a service, I’m glad I can go dressed down. No more “church clothes”. Lol.
