Dress: Papaya; Shoes: GoJane.com

I was having a real yellow moment when I visited Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta a couple weeks ago for a networking event. Hair, skin tone, dress, bag….all of it.

So naturally I became curious about the psychology and meaning of the color yellow. This is the quick version of what I found:

Yellow: Uplifting, happy, fun, hopeful, practical thinker, networker, the mind, intellect.

Whew chile, the alignment.

Unless God Sent You…

momlife, ootd, travel

Before I got out of Memphis, I grabbed some tasty Mexican food. It happened to be Cinco de Mayo and the weekend already had a celebratory mood, so margaritas it was.

Then we went over to Lorraine Motel to honor the life of MLK Jr. It’s important for me to show my kids the world and teach them about people and history from our eyes.

I rocked this plaid thrifted skirt, creepers, a flower crown, and a white tee. I walked into God is Dope a few weeks ago after brunch and got a few things. I used to drive by from time to time, so I felt like my visit was overdue. I snagged a couple unisex tees and a hoodie. It’s decorated super cute in there too.

This tee says “Unless God Sent You, I’m Unavailable.” And that’s exactly the kind of energy I’m trying to put out there. Blessings on blessings.

Visiting: Discovery Park of America

momlife, travel

Traveled to Tennessee earlier this month with my family for my graduation. I was finally graduating with my master’s degree and I was super happy. Still am.

Since we got in a day early I decided the Discovery Park of America, in Union City, TN, would be an amazing outing for the day. I love the more natural theme parks. It was really cool though and my kids were all into it. There are dinosaurs, an outdoor play area, a rock exhibit, Native American artifacts, classic automobiles, actual trains, and so much that we didn’t get to see. I would recommend it if you’re in that area.

Side note: Yes, I cut my hair and dyed it blonde. It just had to go so that was that. Simple.

What are some other family friendly parks or attractions that you would recommend in the States?

The Graduate: From Martin to Memphis

Career, travel

Shawty just graduated!

I’m so happy to say that I just received my Master of Science in Education from the University of Tennessee- Martin. I studied to be a school counselor so that meant lots of classes, residency, practicum, and two school internships. And I’m walking away with a 4.0 and two babies. Couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.

From graduation, me and my family headed to Memphis. BBQ & Beale Street basically. Had a lot of fun on Beale Street though. That was the longest time I’ve spent in Memphis and I got a real sense of the people while out that night. And my family basically got caught in a drive by shooting, so there’s that, but I thought Memphis was cool. Life is wild tho.

Still on cloud 9. Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Much love.

That New New.

My little sister, Meaghan, came in town to celebrate her Earth Day birthday. We kicked things off at Cascade. I used to skate when I was a kid in East St. Louis so I thought that would be a cool experience.  Shout out to Skate King.

Cascade makes me think so much of the movie ATL. Which then makes me think of Lauren London aka New New. Thinking about Nipsey and inevitably Lauren all the time these days. Much love to them.

Who gon meet me at the skate rink so I can practice and not embarrass myself? 🙂
