Lollapaloooooooza

Festivals? I've loved festivals ever since I was a kid and I appreciate them even more now! Lollapalooza is in Chicago,IL and it is thee best time. With over 400 thousand in attendance and artists of different genres all across grant park is unforgettable. From Big Sean to Lil Yachty to Tove Lo to 6lack to Joey BadAss to Rae Sremmurd, etc..... was definitely one for the books. Going from stage to stage hearing all of this summer's hottest jams was EPIC. I pretty much danced from the time I walked in until I left that night. There were so many cool props for pictures.There were people there from all over the world jus having a good time.  Food?  Amazing...Its Chicago, Duh!lol

Festival Fashion? My faaaaavoriteee!lol Festival fashion has become super popular lately and I am here for it. Everyone is either dipped in glitter or covered in sequins or something cool and crazy to meet the festival fashion demands. I decided to wear a romper completely covered in fringe and a pair of black combat boots! Men?...they were covered in glitter too! Ha..well some! A lot of men decided to rock a jersey, bandana, and a cool pair of sneakers or even go as crazy as a Hawaiin shirts with a pair of printed shorts...whatever! I thought it was all fun! .   

Dancing around Grant Park covered in fringe?....pretty much a good time! I'd do it again next year and you should too! 

Consistency is Key

Its been a while since I blogged but I hope what you are about to read about inspires you in some way!! Here it goes....

I've had a rough last week or 2! One of my Uncles passed away and he was the coolest...COOLEST literally. I will always remember his cool voicemail greeting, the fact that he thought I was thee flyest person ever...HA! so I will always leave the house as fly as can be even on my bad days lol, and most importantly his CONSISTENCY in attitude and having a heart of gold no matter the day, no matter the weather! 

Consistent: Acting or done in the same way over time;;

It wasn't until this week in my life that I learned the true meaning of "Hard times will reveal true friends". . . Anyone can gossip with you, laugh with you, celebrate an accomplishment with you, but those that will catch you when you fall as well as celebrate you when you're up are those that you should keep around. Hearing that someone passed away on the news breaks my heart; & Hearing that one of my friend's loved ones passed away breaks my heart even more, because I know that they're hurting. When you genuinely love someone, you feel their pain. Now is there something that someone can do to take that pain away? Absolutely NOT! But to know that someone cares surely feels good!! A text message that says..."Hey are you ok?, I'm really praying for you!, I love you!, & Im here"!...MEANS EVERYTHING! Now...how many of those messages did I get..quite a few, but from a very very small group of people! Someone stopping what they're doing mid day to drive by to make sure I'm legit ok... thats truly appreciated. Thank you ALL for being consistent in my time of need!  I love you & appreciate you! God has blatantly showed me who has my best interest at heart and my goodness does he answer prayers, because I constantly pray for my friends and ask him to constantly reveal who is true! It doesn't always have to be a death of a loved one, but we all as human beings will have our down days and you too will need a shoulder to lean on...Who will be that shoulder? 

Life is too short for any type of negative energy....SO, be consistent with your love! Be consistent with your friendships! Laugh often preferably a few times a day lol. Go to Dairy Queen a few times a week! Don't complain, because it can always be worse! Most importantly......Tell those that you love that you love them everyday...I sure do! 

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent

In today's world, it takes a strong individual...yes you must be a true INDIVIDUAL who knows who you are and where you are going! Everyone is so competitive when it comes to career, certain lifestyles, appearance, and more. Everyday that we wake up should be a constant reminder that you are enough. Theres NOTHING, absolutely nothing wrong with bettering yourself for you but if you are doing it to keep up with a friend, then your doing it all for the wrong reasons. God made you who you are for a reason and if there is anyone in your life that is blocking you to become who God wants, then its time to make some changes. Get that degree if you want it for you. Go to grad school if you want it for you. Live a healthier lifestyle because YOU want to look and feel good for yourself not because you feel inferior to a friend. Support your friends in their endeavors but never let anyone make you feel inferior or like you have to change to "keep up" with them. Ask God about your destiny. . . & be the best YOU!!

Miami is always a good idea

I cannot believe my first vacation of 2017 is over already...*sigh* but more to come lol! If you have not been to Miami, let me tell you why you should go...SOON!ha! The food is delicious.... I have a serious love for cuban sandwiches from Manolo & Rene Cafe. My other favorite restaurant is Tacology located in the Brickell area (downtown Miami). FASHION... The shopping is to die for....from Zara to Saks to Dash to Sparkle & Shine Darling Boutique...all my favorites and of course many more. Everyone loves to go to the beach which is beautiful yet relaxing but don't just stay on South Beach..theres SO MUCH more Miami has to offer. There's Bayfront Park located downtown where you can shop, eat, take a boat ride, and get a daiquiri from the famous,Fat Tuesday's. The night life is so live simply because clubs are open to 5am or even 24 hours a day (Club E11evn was my fav!) Fire & Ice bar is an experience of a lifetime. Theres an entire bar made of ice, a 23-degree winter wonderland of ice; ice sculptures, seats, tables, couches, the bar top &...I mean even your cups are made of ice. How cool?!lol I can go on and on but I hope that my experience in Miami inspires you to take a vacation or BAEcation this year!!
