Intersection of friends, food, and music: Berklee Music Jazz Festival


 I was randomly going through my computer, when I came across  pictures that I took at the Berklee Jazz Festival last year. Scrolling through the pictures brought back memories of the festival, and despite being a year late, I am still going to go ahead and share the pictures with you all. Enjoy...

It was a gorgeous day with unbeliveable clear blue skies

My first stop was the public library. I always read Things Fall Apart yearly, and it was time for my yearly  read ( I have since bought my own copy)

When I was done at the library, I noticed these couples (note the other couple behind)taking wedding pictures. This must be a popular wedding pic spot
Selfie time. My red lipstick is vanity raine by Coloured Raine

The slogan for this restuarant couldn't explain the day any better

Old fashioned soda sounds like a good idea

Ran into my girl, Ola

After indulging in some yummy Jamaican cuisine,and meeting up with my friend, Yumi, it was time for some jazz music

I caught a few performances, but Ledisi's was the most enjoyable for me, and I even caught it on video
We snuck in an usie while watching Ledisi
Then we checked out some cool vendors! I want all these skirts
I copped myself a cool "JAZZ FESTIVAL" t shirt
Yellow Lambogini!! I want!
...and of course, I couldn't resist this mural wall
Why do I look so pissed. Lol!
Yumi joined in on the mural wall fun
So did Miss O
My friends weren't able to get food at the festival, so we made our way to a Jamaican restaurant and headed to Yumi's to watch a good old romcom, "Something New". The perfect end to my already perfect day was ice cream, and that was exactly what we did--yummy yum ice cream to sign off the day.

That's all folks. Don't forget to check out my "Think Pink" post to learn the steps involved in a breast self-exam.

 Have a fab 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
