Travel Diary: La La Land

I just LOVE me some California! You can go anytime of year and have an amazing time. I am in love with the San Francisco Bay Area, but I have a thing for sun and palm trees. LA LA Land is the spot for just that! I have visited L.A. a few times, and each time I have a different experience. I like to sightsee when I travel. Each place I visit has something cool and different to offer.

Black History Continues….

It never ends. We, as African-Americans, have to continue to educate ourselves and others on OUR history, struggles, and triumphs. We have to know our own history in order to teach our children, so they can keep it going!


We have overcome so many tragedies and obstacles, but we continue to rise! This is evident in education, business, media, science and politics.  And the list goes on and on. It all starts with a conversation in an effort to end ignorance.

Labor Day Style

This post is sort of late (I’m human and the weekend wore me out LOL). Well at least you know I enjoyed myself. The weather here in the PNW (Pacific Northwest)  was a little gloomy but 2 days out of the 4-day weekend were absolutely gorgeous! Of course I had 2 different outfits for Monday. When plans change, so does the outfits honey (wink).

Summer Reads: June

So, I have decided to spend my summer getting my read on! As you all know, I LOVE books! I recently started a part-time gig at my local library. Let’s just say I’m in book heaven! Of course I am the only dweeb to have like 22 books checked out at once (hehe, or maybe not :-P). Then I came up with the idea of doing a monthly summer reading list. Each month during the summer I will share with you guess what books I am reading for the month. The list will include Fiction and NonFiction books from different genres. I’m so excited! Here is my Summer Reading List for June!
