A lot of people have a lot of questions about my seemingly as-of-late nomadic lifestyle. While my base for quite some time was D.C. and Maryland (Bmore heeey), after my mom passed away in August 2015, it no longer felt like home. Everything reminded me of her and the experiences we’d had, and while that may seem comforting to some, if you’ve ever lost your mom you know that it’s necessary to escape those memories for awhile, because they hurt you in a place you can’t reach. Realizing her laugh, warmth, wisdom and comfort are no longer there – the…

  Let’s keep this short and sweet. I have a confession: I suck at blogging. Not the writing part, I’ve got that down pat. The daily blogging of it all. This little blog, and travel, they’re my passions, so I’ve got to treat them better. I was reading a post by Ty Alexander, a.k.a and b.k.a GorgeousinGrey.com, and she gave great advice about nurturing your relationship with your readers, and them being able to trust you for content. I’ve been like a bad boyfriend to y’all, inconsistent at best. Personal setbacks, being busy with my career, a new love (that…

Memories of religiously thumbing through aisles of clothes with my mom and walking out with tons of beautifully discounted pieces flashed through my mind.

You can find everything from H&M to Saint Laurent, Zara to Alexander Wang in my closet. There’s no shame in my discount game but I digress. When Loehmann’s closed, I started noticing something about my…

If my potty mouth offends, excuse it. It’s my intentional rebellion against acceptable lexicon, but, if any young (under 18) ladies are reading this post, please, keep your mouth clean. Speaking of clean! I’ve gotten a lot of inquiries about how my vegetarian journey is going, and it’s great! I feel lighter (literally, weird side effect is that I’ve lost 4 pounds this week) and I sleep better. Besides fruits and vegetables, there are some go-to foods and herbal medicinals that keep ME healthy. Disclaimer: I’m in no way, shape or form, a healthcare professional. Just a journo who keeps…

I’ll give this thing a chance I will. I won’t run away, I won’t. I’ll sit on this thrown of lofty possibility. I’ll be vulnerable, I’ll defrost. I’ll float untethered in this space, may it never ground me. I’ll make you my muse. I will write you. I’ll sing you. I’ll protect you. I’ll capture your things unseen in my lens. I’ll liken you to waves and water, foam and an infinite sea. I’ll let you bask in my warmth, rest in my sand, find reverie in your eyes. I’ll hold your stare fast, no, I won’t run. I’ll hold.…
