The NMAAM is located in the heart of Nashville, on Broadway, just two blocks from The Frist Art Museum and the Country Music Hall of Fame. It’s a welcome addition to the vast heritage of art & culture … Continue reading LIVING: Visit the National Museum of African-American Music In Nashville

On Tuesday, May 14th, the Nashville Symphony presented their annual fashion show. This year brought the return of designs by Carolina Herrera under the creative direction of Wes Gordon. Gordon’s youthful injection to the fashion house is a welcome addition to the classic Herrera story. I was pleasantly surprised at trendy neon presentations, an elegant mix of volume vs. length, plus playful nods to ladylike silhouettes.
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.
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.
It’s a new year but I’m back to my old ways and that’s not a bad thing. I’m JUICING again! Last summer I completed a 40 Day Detox.

Many of you wanted to do a juice cleanse after reading my results, but didn’t trust that you had the best recipes, the right … Continue reading My Three-Day Juice Cleanse With Juice Nashville

Paris 1900: City of Entertainment at the Frist Art Museum is one of the most interesting exhibits that I thought I’ve never like! Seriously, an exhibit about old school Paris seemed to be kinda boring. But, from the layout of the exhibit to the individual pieces, I was immediately engaged in the story of a city that grew as quickly as Nashville is growing right now!
When I received an invite to True Food Kitchen I was so excited to try their chic approach to conscience nutrition! Basically, the True Food Kitchen’s menu is all healthy but so TASTY! Below, I share my experience dining at Nashville’s newest restaurant and what set this menu apart from other ‘healthy’ cuisines in the city.
It’s time for another restaurant review! This time I was invited to try Pastaria. Pastaria Nashville is located off of Charlotte Pike in the ONEC1TY business development. This Italian eatery makes homemade pastas, pizza, and salads, along with delicious desserts. My guest and I were treated to a virtual eating tour of Italy. Our server was AMAZING and patient as we asked a million questions about the menu.
