#BLOGGERLIFE: Why do we love Instagram?

The latest Instagram shutdown caused alot of trauma and drama in the social media world. This time, Instagram was barely usable and Facebook was inaccessible by desktop. Remember, Instagram is owned by Facebook. The platforms often piggy-back on each other when it comes to algorithm changes and platform updates. Often times, this leaves Blogger Influencers frustrated and confused. We ask, “why do we love Instagram, anyway?”

STYLE: Too old for the trends?

How do you do fellow kids?!” LOL! Do you ever feel weird when you see a style or trend that some would call ‘young’?

Lets talk about aging and getting dressed. As a woman past 30, I’m always conflicted about dressing ‘my age’. I’ve always skewed young, most people pointing out that I don’t look my age. Even when I was in my 20’s my face has read younger. Also, I’ve always worked in youth development, so it makes sense for me to be up with the young people. From music to fashion, I love being on the cusp of the ‘come up’! Continue reading “STYLE: Too old for the trends?”

Is dating in Nashville a lost cause?

After attending the recent event, ‘Single in the Ville’, sponsored by Nashville’s newest publication, Nashville Voice I was almost convinced that dating in Nashville was a lost cause.

The Nashville Voice is the city’s newest African-American news publication.  The online news source discusses Nashville news from an black perspective. On Tuesday, at The Lab Nashville, the publication hosted a women-only event aimed at breaking the code of dating in the city. Moderated by Markeith Braden (entrepreneur + success coach), the event asked attendees open-ended questions about their dating experiences in Nashville.

Stylishly Tasty with Slim & Husky’s

Slim & Husky’s is Nashville’s pizza! By now, if you live in Nashville and you haven’t had a pizza from Slim & Husky’s pizza you must live under a rock. Slim and Husky’s Pizza Beeria rocked the Nashville culinary scene like no other restaurant. Maybe it’s because people love pizza, maybe because of their commitment to the community, or maybe because black people are awesome and we make everything better – no matter what, Slim & Husky’s is here to stay. That’s why I was so happy they asked me to check out their Antioch location, delicious NEW Signature Pasta, and rock their very fly merchandise.
