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 🎶🎶
Prior to going to my first Fashion Week event in New Orleans, I had a small hint of anxiety. Its almost like going to a new school on the other side of town. The surroundings are foreign, you find yourself a bit lost and unsure. But then……you see something that’s familiar….like the kid from your old school that transferred just like you did. Now the moment is erased of unease and has been replaced with a sense of propinquity. That’s how I felt, walking into Fashion Week alone, not knowing anyone and trying to find my footing. As I watched the runway show and took photos, that sense of ease came when I heard the hostess announcing NOLA Couture. It was a company I knew of, pulling me into the moment, not only as a lonely, wondering blogger, but as a spectator, watching a place that I am familiar with be apart of the show. Speaking
In my travels throughout my life, I’ve noticed that a person’s face, a song, a location, an aroma…..things like this can remind you of something. Often, we can remember things vividly with such things to aid us. When Beyonce came on the scene with the song ‘Diva’ and wore those iconic shades at the beginning of the video, I was in a trance. Never did I imagine that I would one day get to meet the mastermind behind that piece of work. Those shades were made by no other than the celebrity designer, Stevie Boi (StevieBoi.com). You know I had to bring a little twist to the experience, all in love. Please enjoy my video, photos of the venue and the shade collection Stevie Boi brought to New Orleans Fashion Week 2018.

To be a native of Louisiana and finally experience New Orleans Fashion Week was like a dream come true. Coming into Fashion Week, I was clearly intimated by the location of the venues, sharing rooms with celebrities, models, designers, socialites. Attending as a blogger and not a model put my mindset in a new level of stress to ‘perform’ if you will. Being in the right position, getting the right shot, and so many other things plagued my mind – that is until I got there. Despite it being the last night of New Orleans Fashion Week 2018, the venue was set and my destination was The Monastery. Although I am from Baton Rouge, knowing the location of the venue meant that it would not disappoint. One of the many designer’s collection that captivated me was Clinton Whitney Downing. Clinton is known for his raw eye for fashion as a designer and his forward-thinking as an
Mardi Gras is over ☹️☹️☹️ but I had a good time!!!!! Although I live about an hour away, going to The Big Easy is always an exciting trip for me. Here’s a picture I took at the 2018 Zulu BigShot ball at the Hyatt Regency – New Orleans I want to personally thank the staff at the Hyatt Regency – New Orleans for their professionalism. I was merely a guest for an event and was given optimum treatment. I’ll be making a post on Mardi Gras in the near future and the greatness in and around New Orleans.
For those of us who are familiar with the flood of 2016, you know that unpredictable storm brought grief and devastation to southeast Louisiana at what we predicted to be the end of hurricane season. Also known as the ‘100-year rain event”, this rainstorm moved in as a hurricane without the wind and without a warning. At the peak, close to 20% of businesses in the state of Louisiana were affected by the storm, while over 6,000 businesses experienced physical flooding throughout East Baton Rouge, Livingston, Ascension, and other surrounding parishes. While the cleanup and the federal assistance has dragged out and stress the locals to this day, what is remarkable is the way in which the people of south Louisiana have managed to stay optimistic and true to tradition. With the flood of 2016 also came another storm: presidential election season. When the annual SpanishTown parade came around in the city of Baton Rouge, came a new theme of ‘Come
