Furry Coat Love.

Greetings and Happy New Year. It also happens to be Black History Month so theres that as well. Plenty to be grateful for. 2020 has been pretty illuminating already. I cleaned up my eating and I’ve been way more consistent with my spiritual practice. Meditation makes a difference, man. My friend had a gender reveal/…

God Bless the Ratchets.

Hey, hey! I hit up the Saint Jhn concert in Atlanta recently. I was excited for the show because Saint Jhn’s music is dope. His tone, the vibes, and the general aesthetic is fire. He has 2 compilations on Apple Music. I recommend you check them out. If you take a listen, drop me a…

A Little Lip Service in Atlanta

Hey hey! Angela Yee, 1/3 of the Breakfast Club, had a live show of her podcast “Lip Service” in Atlanta last Wednesday night. It was at the Buckhead Theatre. I had never actually heard Lip Service but I was excited to experience a live Podcast. The crowd was relatively small but it was still cool….

Music: Afrobeats Concert @ the A3C Festival

Hey! I was at the A3C Afrobashment show at the Tabernacle. I’m a big fan of Afrobeats at this point so I was pretty excited to check out a good show. Initially, this show had: Afro B, Mr Eazi, Koffee, Tiwa Savage, and Burna Boy. As it got closer to the show date, Tiwa and…

Staycation with me.

I celebrated 5 years in the marriage game last weekend. It honestly stuns me that I have been married for 5 years already. Life just keeps moving right along. Marriage is challenging at times but it’s also a lot of fun, especially when you’re raising a family together. Here’s to loving, listening, lots of fun,…

Travel: Father’s Day in Kansas City.

If it’s one thing about me that you can bet on, it’s that I’m always taking (and editing) pictures. The 8,000+ pictures currently on my iPhone are proof of that. So even when I’m not posting anything, my arsenal real strong. I was in Kansas City for Father’s Day this year. We went to Fritz’s,…

The Graduate: From Martin to Memphis

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…

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….

Print Master/ Shorties at an Art Show.

Hey loves! How is life? I feel like I’ve been going through it but I’m still moving in the right direction so all is good. Focusing on gratitude, right? When things get really chaotic or stressful, it’s important to check in with yourself and put that self-care/self-love on 100. Taking time to be mindful, breathing…

Sheer-o

Hey! I went to the club Superbowl weekend. I haven’t been to a club club in a minute. It was fun, but I’m not rushing to do all that again. For me, the music has to be 100, so when the DJ got selective amnesia about new school hip hop/trap music, I had to make…
