Pink, florals, cobalt blue, carousel, and other weekend stories...

Hi all, hope you all had a fun and relaxing weekend? Here is what I got up to this weekend
Started the weekend by hanging with my high school friend, Tee
Looks like it's Christmas in May
Wagamama is one of my favorite spots, and we decided to grab dinner there.  As you can tell by the look on my friend's face, the food sucked this time around :-(
Since dinner was a burst, we decided to do the next best thing--take silly pictures :-)
Started Saturday by taking fun pictures. I am a sucker for colorful backgrounds, and I posed it up in front of this blue wall

Being silly
The carousel was the perfect match for my colorful floral skirt

It was such a gorgeous day, and it was a no-brainer to go to the park and hang out for a bit

When we were done at the park, we headed to a cook out

Being silly again
Soon it was Sunday, and that depressing feeling you get because the weekend is almost over started to kick in
So we hit the town to get some froyo and eat the Monday blues away
I couldn't resist this colorful door and window
We strolled for a bit, and soon it was dinner time. We chose to have dinner at an improvisational grill restaurant where you pick your own pick your raw food and sauces, and watch it cook on the open grill--pretty cool concept
The night ended with capucinno crunch and maple buttah nut icecream

In all, my weekend wasn't too shabby. What did you guys get up to?

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?

Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
