Womanista Entertaining: A Summer Table

Womanista Summer Table

I  L-O-V-E to entertain. Sharing a meal & a great glass of wine with friends in the comfort of your own home is absolute heaven to me. And I always skew on the side of a little bit fancy (you can never go wrong with a splash of glam!) – so last week my husband […]

I recently spent a few days in sunny Southern California – it’s so gorgeous there and easy to get inspired by the “casual cool” style on the coast. I wore this outfit to do a little wine tasting at Rosenthal in Malibu followed by dinner at Geoffrey’s with my husband (this chic restaurant feels like […]

Womanista Fashion: Florals + Silk

Womanista Florals

I absolutely love prints. And this pretty pair of floral pants caught my eye the second that I spotted them – the only caveat? Would the relaxed “pajama” look be cute on me, and could I really pull that off! As I tried them on in the Nordstrom dressing room, VOILA! Actually Cute! And so […]

Womanista Travel: Blackberry Farm

Blackberry Farms

Editor’s Note: Let me preface this post by saying this – Blackberry Farm comes with a lot of hype. It is routinely heralded with top travel awards and earns the kind of praise (year after year!) reserved only for 5+ star establishments. I consider myself pretty well-traveled and I’ve gotten to stay in some dynamite […]

The VS team creates such a fun production that it’s like being at a concert, a fashion show, and some sort of cool broadway show all at the same time. The runway is made of […]

Womanista Decor: Decorating a New “Womanista” Home


About a year and a half ago, my husband and I purchased our dream home in Nashville – We only looked at it once before making an offer, and I knew immediately that I wanted it to be ours. The property is what sold me almost immediately. We have sweeping magnolias, an elegant pool, and […]

Womanista Travel: Le Sirenuse & Positano, Italy


Womanista has been on a bit of a summer vacation (I’ve tried my best to enjoy the first summer in a LOOOONG time that my husband hasn’t been touring! Well, it’s the first summer he hasn’t been touring since I’ve known him, so there’s that…) so I packed up the computer and lived life a […]

Womanista Travel: Cocktails in Sydney


Hello my womanistas! I have just returned from the magical country of Australia (and sigh, I’m still feeling the brutal jet lag…but it was well worth it!) My last stop in Oz was in Sydney – which is gorgeous, and beachy, and cosmopolitan at the same time. Kinda like a cool mix of San Francisco […]

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 […]
