Vlogs: This dog of mine/ Tanacon situation continues

    First off, let me say ‘thank you’ to everyone who has subscribed to my new YouTube vlog channel and those who plan on doing so after this post. Its a progress but I would love for you to watch me and my channel grow. Now…..I’ve been reading articles and watching vids on people’s account of what happened. At time point, the sources are talking! Here’s what I found out so far:      

Fashion Designer: On Aura Tout Vu

     Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov make up this duo of Bulgarian-born internationally-praised designers, On Aura Tout Vu. Yassen graduated with studies geared toward textiles and fine arts school of Versailles, while Livia completed at the fine arts school of Paris. With their education, teamwork and love for the art, they’ve fascinated the world with some of the most captivating designs of this era. Take a look:              

The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival – Louisiana

    It seems that around this time of the year, Louisiana comes out of the winter and celebrates spring with a series of festivals that generations of families have enjoyed. One in particular that I try to attend every year is the Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Nestled between Lafayette and Baton Rouge, Breaux Bridge swells with people from all over the state to experience the taste of crawfish cooked every way possible.      One of the beautiful things about this festival is that there is something there for everyone, including art from local artists and businesses, carnival rides and ohhhh, so much of that glorious cajun music. Being embedded in southeast Louisiana, some good cajun music will definitely get the crowd on their feet. . Check out a few of my photos from the festival this year: And while you here, get you some of this cajun music 🎶🎶    

2018 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival: LL Cool J/ New Orleans Tricentennial

     So one of the many beautiful things about living in Louisiana is the ability to have a good time without planning it. This weekend marked the end of the 2018 JazzFest and the 300th Anniversary of the city of New Orleans. While the tickets to such an event may not seem reasonable, having access to stage acts from Anita Baker to Aerosmith makes it worth the wild! So I didn’t see Aerosmith or Ms. Baker, but I did witness the legendary hiphop master LL Cool J rock the golden mic on JazzFest Congo Square Stage  🔥🔥🔥🔥 Here’s my backstage view:        While spending some time in New Orleans, I decided to take in some of the views I’ve grown up with and share it with you. Being from this great state, I missed it tremendously while I was in the U.S. Army. When I moved to New York, I would make sure I took a vacation to come back

Berny Martin : Founder of Midwest Fashion Week

     Throughout my travels in an unbiased quest to bring to my audience fashion and the unique designers behind them, my recent travels took me into the city of Chicago, affectionately known as the ‘Heart of America’. My destination in the Windy City? Midwest Fashion Week of course, which was founded and guided by Mr. Berny Martin. As a fan of Mr. Martin’s work, I have followed Midwest Fashion Week over the years as they have acquired numerous mentions in notable magazines such as IndyStar.com (USA Today), ELLE Men, and Ok! Magazine. Midwest Fashion Week not only brings forth talent and visions via the runway, but also raises money for charities and non-profit organizations.      Mr. Martin is no ordinary Haitian-born gentleman with just ‘good taste’, but an international fashion revolutionary in his own right. Notably a graduate of Purdue University, Berny Martin is also the Founder and CEO of Catou Wear, which serves on leaps and bounds beyond simply ‘made’ fashion designs.      Martin’s Catou Wear brings
