Friday Faves | Joggers
One of the most versatile pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe over the last few months has been a pair of joggers. Not as limiting as leggings but easier to wear than full on pallazo pants, joggers are no longer left for the gym. This trend isn’t new (they made a resurgence about a year ago), but they’re still so…cool. Seriously. On a chill day you can throw them on with a tee + flip-flops, but if…

Tranquil Waters | Refilling Your (Mental) Cup
For the first time in over 7 years, I went on vacation. Not just a few days off lounging around the house but a REAL vacation. It was short (only 4 days), but it was both refreshing and much needed. Since I launched this blog in September 2010, I have basically been on the go non-stop. I work a full-time job with crazy hours, do freelance writing work, research/blog a minimumof 20 hours a week,…

Stylish Dining | Jack Binion’s Steakhouse at The Horseshoe Tunica
Last week I had the pleasure of being invited to a media dinner for the grand opening of the newly renovated Jack Binion’s Steakhouse at The Horseshoe Casino Tunica. It’s been awhile since I’ve traveled to Tunica and my work schedule stars aligned so I made the trek down for some good food and good times!
I was treated to a room at The Horseshoe, and for a quick getaway from home, it was…
Call him crazy, but #yeezy said a word. I think the term “power couple” is hilarious, BUT couples that are equally yoked in multiple areas do seem to navigate these waters a little easier + generally have more fun doing so. Level up! #life #love #quotes #gq

Travel Essentials for a Beachy Getaway
This weekend I’m finally, FINALLY headed to the beach for a few days, and one of the things I’ve been dealing with all week is figuring out what to pack. Obviously I’ll have sunscreen, magazines, and my camera, but my biggest issue is finalizing what clothes to pack. This trip will be aaaall about relaxing in the sun so I don’t want to tak too much, but I still want to have options (just in case).
Published! Grace Magazine July 2014 Issue
A few months ago, my friend Andrea informed me that she was going to be interviewed by Grace Magazine, a premiere Mid-South publication for WOC. Founded in 1997, the issue would be celebrating their relaunch, and she needed to get some updated imagery to go along with the feature; she also wanted to showcase a new piece she’d designed.
The issue finally dropped last week and I’m so excited to…
Beauty Buy | e.l.f. Studio Cream Eyeliner (Dupe Alert)
Although the e.l.f. Studio Cream Eyeliner ($3.99) was created to use on the eyes, over the last few weeks I’ve found the Coffee shade to be the most perfect brow pomade.
The creamy formula is smudge proof and water-resistant, and when applied with an angled brush, it can be used to create a sculpted brow. The coffee color has a little bit of an ash undertone, so when used with a light touch, you…
Gun For Hire | Memphis Art Spotlight
“I love being a ‘gun for hire’ – as Helmut Newton would say.” ~ S. Julian
One of the things that I love about Memphis is that it’s literally bursting at the seams with talent and creativity. From food fusions to designers to artists, to photographers, if you’re one that looks to support local small businesses and entrepreneurs, they really aren’t that hard to find.
Photography is a medium that…
Artisan Style | Showcasing Your Work
One of the cool things about having so many friends that are creatives is that even when we’re just hanging out on a random Saturday, we still know how to get our personal work done without feeling like we’re sacrificing our friendships. Your work and “life” become fluid, so you’re constantly inspired by your environment.
After I went to an art exhibit in the Spring, I stopped by my friend Andrea…
