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

ORANGES

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.

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 […]

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

tag 1

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

SLIDER IMAGES 2

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

FLY 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 […]
