Juneteenth 2020: Radical Honesty.

My Juneteenth celebration yesterday. Beauty, bellies, booties, & black women. My liberation came in the form of radical honesty. I sat in that pool yesterday and shed real tears and let it wash over me. Often times as women and/or mothers, we try to keep it all together. We’ve been conditioned to. The concept of…

OOTD: Midwest Shawty.

I’m not sure what it is about this outfit…maybe it’s the skirt, maybe it’s the hat, but I just feel like this embodies a midwest vibe. Maybe I just called myself country, I don’t know, lol. But I like it. Shout out to all of St. Louis. I just finished up my first year of…

OOTD: Backwards Day

Hey guys. I’m back with another outfit of the day, quarantine edition. My family is doing a Spirit Week at the crib, so this was “Backwards Day.” My kids loved the whole idea of wearing their clothes backwards and they did so the entire day, lol. I wore my shirt backwards and ended up really…

It’s Easter, and We Out Here.

“Out here” meaning “in the house” of course, lol. Sometimes Easter goes by and I don’t really trip off it. It feels more like a general holiday. It embodies a certain time of the year where everything is coming alive and it’s warming up, so that’s cool. You get to dress up and look cute…

Around Atlanta: The Beacon.

Greetings! I’m so happy to have a minute to sit down and write. Life has been hectic lately and I’ve just been trying to cope. Cope with psychology school, motherhood, marriage, and expressing myself. I’m in the middle of midterms too, so every minute is especially important. I stopped by The Beacon for the first…

Travel: Tybee Island

I feel rejuvenated. Like something has changed on a cellular level. Like healing has occurred. I talked about my spiritual journey recently on my Facebook page and I was super surprised by the feedback that I got. It helped me to realize that there is the opportunity to create community and connection by being more…

5 Tips if You’re Going to Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Mirrors”

Infinity Mirrors aka “dot on dots on dots” When I heard Yayoi Kusama was exhibiting work at the High Museum here in Atlanta, I was geeked. I bought tickets for Friday night, figuring it would be a cute date night. I was totally right (as usual/always.) I’m an artist and I really enjoy seeing other…
