Vlog Snippet – Maryland

I’ve been traveling so much this past year! As soon as I got home from one trip, I was packing for another. I’m always on the go, but I love it! A few months ago, I went to Maryland to visit my best friend. Here’s a snippet of my time there. I’ll have the full vlog up…

Playlist Worthy: Tory Lanez – LUV

A couple of weeks ago, Tory Lanez dropped his newest single “LUV”, and I am loving it!

Can we say, summer anthem!? Be on…

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Miami

Yes, I am always in Miami. After all, it is my second home. I love museums and I am obsessed with flowers, so what better place to combine the two than at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens? In 1912, the mansion was built by a retired millionaire, James Deering. He also had a love for traveling and named…

A weekend in the Windy City – Chicago, Illinois

Back in November, I met up with my cousin in Chicago to celebrate her 30th birthday. We had such a wonderful time – just the two of us! First stop was the John Hancock Observatory, which is also known as 360 Chicago Observatory. If you’re ballsy enough, try TILT. You get a downward facing view 1,000 feet over the Magnificent…

A few months ago I accidentally stumbled upon dvsn and I’m totally loving his dark sexy R&B vibe. He is officially dropping his album Sept. 5 on April 1, but it’s available now on Apple Music. Take a listen below and let me know what you think.

Clearwater Beach, Florida

My family is a very family-oriented family despite the fact that everyone is spread apart across the country. We are all grown adults with our own lives and own families, but we do try to set aside time for these family gatherings. For our 2nd Annual Cousin Trip, we took it down Tampa, Florida. We drove out to Clearwater Beach…

Passports for domestic flights UPDATE

A few months ago I posted a blog about how passports will be needed to board domestic flights. Well, there has been an update! These are the states that are non-compliant with the REAL ID Act and have not been granted an extension. Don’t worry; if you have an ID from one  of these non-compliant states, the Department…

Playlist Worthy: Jeremih – Pass Dat

Jeremih has been one of my favorite singers ever since he first came out with “Birthday Sex”. Any single that Jeremih has ever put out or was featured in is always a hit. He is probably one of the most underrated R&B artists out there. Homie deserves some more love! Listen to his latest single, “Pass Dat” from his newly…

Traveling during a Worldwide Travel Alert

Our thoughts and prayers are still with the friends and families of the 130 innocent people who lost their lives and the hundreds who were wounded in Paris, France.

Remember a few weeks ago I said Erykah Badu was dropping new music soon? Well, here it is. She released her But You Caint Use My Phone mixtape last week and it is available now on iTunes.
