All Black in Atlanta

Hey guys, happy Saturday. 

Today I am sharing my ATL adventures from last summer. I know, I know...*hides face in shame*. While I blogged about my time in  Martin Luther King historic District, Atlanta, (see post here),  I forgot to blog about my first day in this lovely southern city. Like they say, it's better late than never...enjoy!
Atlanta Hartsfield Airport: I had to finish up some office work before getting my tourist game on.
Once I checked in at the hotel, I headed to Centennial Olympic Park, Downtown Atlanta.

I am scared of heights, so the SkyView ferris wheel was a no for me! 


Next up was a tour of CNN Center

 Getting some behind the scene action at the world's largest news network. 

Hey there Anderson :-)

To be honest, I found the CNN tour extremely boring. Walking through the newsroom and offices did not excite me one bit, so I ditched the tour about 20 minutes in and went off to explore on my own.


Posed it up with this Gulf war hummer at the CNN Center.

Next up was the World of CocaCola


How cute are these giant size bottles!
Fun coca cola memorabilia and items  
 
...and I was on a mission to taste as many as I could
So many coca cola products that I had never heard of

All smiles after trying counteless coke products

While waiting for my take out from Cheese Cake Factory at the Perimeter Mall, I  decided to use this brick wall for a photo opp :-)



Day one of my trip was quite short. Aside catching a very early morning flight (5:00 AM), I had a cold, and once I picked up my dinner, I called it a day and retired to my hotel to get some much needed rest. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. 

Have a great weekend.

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
