Womanista Holiday: Happy Memorial Day


As I type this, I’m sitting on a breezy beach, sipping an ice cold beer and quietly giving thanks for the military families who give up so much in order to allow me to be exactly where I am right now. I hope all of you lovely womanistas are relaxing today, spending time with your […]

The Juice Cleanse


I think it’s important to “check in” with your body every now and then – Are you getting enough sleep? Do you feel sluggish? Did you enjoy a few too many cocktails this week? Have you eaten anything other than spaghetti in the past few days? (ok, maybe I’m the only one who has to […]

The perfect moisturizing sunscreen

I am sad to say that there was a time in my life when I was a total sun goddess – I recklessly laid out on the beach WITHOUT SUNSCREEN! (THE HORROR!) but now that my skin is officially aging, sigh, I never leave the house without sunscreen…especially on my face. Melanoma need not apply […]

Date Night Outfit #2

Blake Lively sports beachy, casual waves with braided accents and keeps her makeup natural with pink tones and a little bit of shimmer on her eyes

One of my favorite dates is a “daytime” date – whether it’s a trendy and delicious brunch at Marche in East Nashville, or spending the day sipping wine while gazing out on a vineyard (Arrington Vineyards in Tennessee is a fave!), there is something relaxed and fun about planning a romantic rendevous during daylight hours. Just […]

My husband and I have been married for almost 3 years, but we still take our date nights pretty seriously. You know that cheesy cliche “If you want to have a great marriage, never stop dating?” – well, it’s cheesy, but true. Whether you are going on a first date with a guy who makes […]

Womanista Holiday: Mother’s Day


I consider myself a very lucky lady. I have some amazing women in my life who have, at different (or the same!) times, guided me, encouraged me, supported me, laughed or cried with me, uncorked a great bottle of wine and just talked with me, helped me organize a closet, turned up the radio too […]

The Viceroy Anguilla

I recently returned from a Caribbean island where the locals refer to their home as “paradise” – and womanistas, let me tell you. Paradise, it certainly is… My friend and I decided we both needed a relaxing vacation a few weeks ago and dreamt about some fabulous place with glistening turquoise water, white sandy beaches, […]

The Best of New York City


Ah, New York. It’s definitely the “concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there’s nothing you can’t do” which is said best by the wise sages, Alicia Keys & Jay-Z. I happen to have a little history with New York City. My love affair with the big apple began when I was 5-years-old, pounding the […]

Flywheel in NYC


Let me just start out by saying i’m not one of those people who “like” to workout. Not only do I not like to workout, I pretty much have to be dragged kicking and screaming to the gym, and once there have to be coerced into mildly lifting my heart rate to the point where […]

The Perfect T-Shirt

Jcrew 24500_BL9268_m

One of my favorite things about rolling my spring wardrobe into summer, is pairing the relaxed cool of a great t-shirt with just about everything in my closet. You can rock a great tee with anything from a tailored blazer for the office, to sky-high heels and a sequin skirt for a night out for […]
