A few months ago I signed up to participate in a pretty cool blogging project.  Three blogging communities decided to join forces and pair bloggers from the different communities together to coLABorate on a blog post or a series of blog posts.  I bet you're thinking, "Did her caps lock key just randomly stick for 3 letters? And does she know how to spell collaborate??"  Nope!  I capitalized those letters for a reason.  The three communities working together on this project are the Latina Bloggers, Alt Summit, and Blogalicious communities!  And the name of the project is, you guessed it, coLAB.  So, I was paired up with Rebekah of RebekahAnne.com.  […]

Yesterday, August 9, was my birthday!  My 36th birthday to be exact.  *throws confetti*  Happy Birthday to me!  I was talking with my good friend, Shana, last week (her birthday was last week) about how there seems to be so much pressure to do something big for your birthday.  Does anyone else feel that pressure?  We both kept it easy-breezy for our respective birthdays.  I mean, I had just had this big move and started a new job, so I really just wanted to have a good meal and see a good movie.  And I did just that.  And it was a pretty good birthday to me.    I started with […]

Well, this is it.  The last episode of BET's The Game and thus, the last recap post.  Thanks so much for reading after each episode (I hope you didn't notice that I missed a week this season – oops!).  You guys have been great and I've appreciated all of your comments and tweets and even telling me in person on random meetings, how much you love and appreciate these recaps!  That's what's kept me doing them over the seasons.  So, I hope you enjoy this last episode (YAY for Melanie and Derwin returning!!): Rick and Pookie realize that neither one of them was shot, but then Rick says he was […]

Tee: Forever 21 Jeans: Old Navy Handbag: c/o Marshalls Heels: Saks OFF 5TH (c/o Concord Mills/Simon Malls) Location: Uptown Charlotte Photos: Lindsay Wynne Photography   What can I say about Charlotte?  I resisted moving here from Atlanta for 6 months and instead commuted each week to work.  It took quite some time to let Atlanta go and to give Charlotte a real chance.  But eventually, I did and I began to like it.  But now, it's time to move on.  It's been a great 5+ years here.  I've met some great people and had some amazing opportunities here in Charlotte.  But sometimes you get to a point where you know […]

GO: New York City

    I cannot believe that it had been 2 years since I last visited New York City!  For a while there it seems that I was there several times a year.  I will not let another 2 years go by before I go again, because it is one of my favorite cities, if not THE favorite.  Thankfully, my Dad wanted to take a trip to NYC and invited me and my sister along with him.   We did many touristy things which was fun, because when I do go to NYC, I don't ever really do the typical tourist attractions.  Usually, I'm there for business or a particular event.  […]

Crop Top & Pencil Skirt

Crop top: Zara Pencil skirt: The Limited Outlet Heels: Payless Clutch: Shoedazzle Earrings: Belk Location: Uptown Charlotte Photography: Lindsay Wynne Photography   I'm currently loving the crop top trend.  I bought my first one almost a year ago and during my trip to Washington, D.C. last month, I bought this one at the Zara in Georgetown.  This crop top is so me and my style – it's sexy and sophisticated.  It's trendy, but in a classic way.  And, because I don't believe in spending too much on trendy pieces, the price (under $30) made it a no-brainer piece to add to my wardrobe.     You might think that crop […]
