This was me at the house a couple of weeks ago. I had these swishy pants that I found at a thrfit store a while back and this color blocking organza top. They’re among many statement pieces that I buy and then figure out what to do with later. This extended time at home seemed like a great time to build some new fun outfits.
Getting dressed and styling myself is like a tiny therapy session. I get to express. Plus Josie was being cute so I snapped a few pictures in her room after her nap.
I hope you all are doing well. If not, find a little bit of peace each day and hold onto it. Things will turn around.
My Spring Break was earlier this month before social distancing was our reality. I wanted to do something special with my babies so we took a road trip to Chatanooga, Tennessee. And I did it solo dolo. That’s right folks. Just me and the two toddlers, and the trip went really well. I was proud of us.
We went to the Creative Discovery Museum on Saturday and then to the Missionary Ridge Local for a 3-mile round trip train ride on Sunday morning. I don’t know what it is about trains, but kids dig ’em. It was a cool outing for us. And it was my first real train ride too.
See more from our Chattanooga trip below.
I’m here for all of the fun, love, and cool shit that’s been showing up on social media. (The memes have been taking me out 😂 . I just find it interesting that we’re having virtual parties now. I was at DJ D-Nice’s Homeschool party yesterday with apparently 100k other people feeling like a whole cool kid. 💁🏽 Wow. The times.
Even though we’re physically distant, people have really been getting creative with new resources and access online like never before. If you find something cool to do online, send it my way. Gimme dat.
Im taking this time of isolation to reevaluate things in my life, to prioritize things that nurture me, to practice better self care, and to continue to connect with self and God.
Find your fucking peace. I’m trying my best but to be honest, mugs are trying me. It be the ones. And also, send me all the funny tings and resources. Thanks. | 😘
I’ll be sharing a list soon of the resources that I have found to be helpful in some way.
P.S. 2020 is really out here, ain’t it? 😳
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/ birthday party at Ra Sushi. My first time there and I definitely have to go back for a full dinner. My look reflected a classy lady of the night in a Blaxploitation film. I think it’s the coat, lol. Funny enough, I found this coat while shopping at Sam’s. Some of the gems be where you least expect it.
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 comment about what you think.
I was overall happy with the show, but something was definitely amiss during the performance because you could see it on Jhn’s face. My guess is that something was off with the sound. After the first verse of a lot of the songs, he would cut the music to do an a cappella thing. Idk about that, but regardless, it was still a fun show because the songs go hard. Atlanta was the second stop of the tour, so if Saint Jhn is in your city, swing through. I fucks with it.
And as you can see, I switched up my look. Hey girl! The blonde is gone and these bundles have arrived, lol. I rocked long straight hair for a decent amount of my life, so I miss it sometimes. The weather was letting me live my best style life too so I was not mad. Let me know if you’re digging the look in the comments.
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. The special guests were Trouble, YFN Luchi, and Tokyo Jets. I loved how candid the discussions were. They talked about sex, relationships, cheating, monogamy, and all kinds of other foolishness. It was fun, low key, and intimate. I think the overall conversation about relationships and sex and just real shit is definitely beneficial to the collective, whether people end up agreeing or not.
Now I’m thinking about seeing The Friend Zone live in Atlanta (bc that’s my show).
Yal ever been to a live Podcast? How was it?
Peace and blessings,
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 Burna Boy were removed from the lineup. How? I was super dissapointed, but I still went out to see Mr. Eazi, Afro B, & Koffee. I tell you one thing, Afrobeats music is the truth. So “feed-good”, so swaggy, just everything. And Koffee and her band were super talented.
Did anybody else check out this show or see these artists recently? Thoughts? Who’s your favorite Afrobeats artist? I’m really digging Burna Boy, Wizkid, & Juls right now.
Anyway, this is what I wore. Pants from H&M, a (quintessential Atlanta) men’s sequins t-shirt that says “The Plug”, and creepers for good measure. It is spooky season, right?
