    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:

    While the fashion community is a bit tensed right now (all over the world, actually) with this …..I’ll call it the ‘Polyvore Scandal’, I want to step away and give you insight into my own experiences that I have been going through in the realm of fashion. 

 If you are following me on other social media platforms (check my social media links under my photo 👈🏽👈🏽), you’ll notice that I’m not only a blogger, but have worn a few hats in my time here on this Earth.  As a military veteran and law enforcement veteran, being a blogger has proven to be challenging in itself. Despite that, I make an over-extended effort to come out of hiding in my office and attend these events so that I can share them with you  😃

I am sure you are wondering where this is coming from and, to be quite frank with my audience, it has been something that I have labored over. When you read my thoughts and opinions on experiences I have bared witness to, please do not lose the fact that I am just like you, an audience to what is around me or that in which I am exposed to. I bring those experiences to you here, in this blog. 

While on the road driving nearly seven hours to Austin, Texas for Fashion Week, my mind kept going back to my first Fashion Week, which took place in New Orleans a few weeks prior. It was as if I was meant to be there, although I knew no one. As a blogger, I had access to the runway just as the other social media and press entities had. Its probably the only reason this Fashion Week was difficult to digest. I know little about being on this side of the camera or how smaller media entities are treated. With that in mind, I will look at each fashion event as a learning lesson. While I was in a bad position and had little opportunity to take good photos to share with you, out of nearly 600 photos, I can bring to you the ones I am sharing in this post.

     I have no information on the designers to credit or link their work so you can further research them, their brand, stores, or their collections directly. Please enjoy what I have brought back to you and I hope that as I become more fluent in the way in which things operate for small social media platforms as mine, I hope to bring you better content references.

Enjoy your day ✨

Yes Boo, I’m back and this time I have something to say about this BMB super lace glue. If you are ever looking to buy this product, don’t forget that you can get it at your local beauty supply store 🙂

Also, let me say that I actually had no intention on saying a WORD about this catfight that has been playing out in the media but, I just had to input my opinion, boo. How do you feel about it? Feel free to comment, like, subscribe, and share. Its an opinion discussion and definitely up for debate.

So in the midst of my blogs, I had an idea. I’d been seeing videos about ways to install hair units and the ‘best’ and safe methods. Some methods only last a day, which left me a bit discouraged and seeking a longer lasting method to safely secure my hair units and without the worry.

Enter two known methods: BMB and Cling products. Let’s begin with my intro. This should be fun🎈🎈🎈
