Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

If you follow my travel posts, you know that I am sucker for vibrant buildings and old-fashioned aesthetic. Knowing how obsessed I am with quaint towns, my cousin suggested I visit Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.

 True to his words, this city which is on the Potomac river and home to first president of the United States, George Washington offered a heavy dose of quaint gorgeousness! My time there was spent perusing the lovely cobble streets and seeking out interesting buildings. 

While Old Town Alexandria is a beautiful  place, I wouldn't advice anyone to fly in from any part of the world just to see this town. It is a really small town and there isn't much to do. However, if you are visiting Washington DC, it wouldnt hurt to hop on the metro to explore this charming town for a few hours.

Below are the beautiful  sights I encoutered on my two-day visit. Enjoy...
There is a free trolley that runs down the major commercial street, King Street. I hopped on it all the way to the Potomac River waterfront
Potomac River Water front
Few things are more gorgeous than a sunset on a river.
Selfie time
Yellow brick wall
How pretty are these homes!
Prettiest front door ever
Fall leaves and cobblestone roads

The framing of this street with the trees is just perfect
Mint condition 
More colorful goodness
Back at the water front on day 2
Just an interesting alley way
Pretty sign and fall leaves
...and of course yummy cupcakes to end an amazing day.

That's all folks. Hope you enjoyed my little adventure in Old Town Alexandria. 
Have a great thanksgiving.

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
