Scales of Style, Etichat, and Out of My Mouth Inspired at the Frist Center for Visual Arts

Art and Inspiration

You never know where your path will lead you…. Well, last week, it lead me to a photo shoot at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts with Mariah, creator of Out of my Mouth, and Thallen, creator of Etichat.

Now, this photo shoot was a little different for me. Not only are we all bloggers, but we’re also all black, women, and attorneys. We’re all driven; we enjoy helping other people; and we all set out to make an impact on the world.

Summer Lookbook

Ann Taylor Summer Collection for the Win

Ann Taylor 2017 Summer Collection

Summer is finally here! Yay! And even though I have a closet full of clothes, with the new season, my wardrobe needed a slight update. Now, I typically try to purchase staple pieces that transition well from season to season and aren’t too trendy that my wardrobe frequently requires a major overhaul. I sprinkle in a few trendy pieces here and there that coordinate well with pieces I already own and to keep my wardrobe fresh.

Draper James Nashville Blogged


I did my first snapchat takeover, and it happened to be for Draper James’ Birchbox event! Ummm, yes! If you’re not familiar, Draper is a clothing retailer (owned by Reese Witherspoon), and BB provides a beauty subscription service. The two businesses teamed up to celebrate Women’s History Month, and I was thrilled Draper James asked me to be a part of it. In case you missed it, I’ve recapped the deets.

Looking the Part with Limited Time

Celebrating International Women’s Day

While we’re busy taking on the world and balancing everything on our plates, one of the first things we nix once our to do list grows too long is time we once dedicated to taking care of ourselves, including our attire. And for that reason, today I’m dishing on how to look the part in a fraction of the time.  Continue reading “Looking the Part with Limited Time”

Feature Friday – Interview with Mariah

 


Feature Friday 

“I’ve always loved reading and writing. I was in a short story contest in 3rd grade and I think I got 2nd or 3rd place. Ever since then, I figured I would either read or write for a living.” – Mariah

Feature Fridays are back, and I’m really excited about the features I have lined up this month! In honor of black history month I’m intentionally featuring black history makers in my Feature Friday posts. First up, I have a fellow blogger, lawyer, and advocate. She’s a great writer, and happens to be using her skills to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of black people this month (in this country and abroad) through a collection of poems.
