And the Winner Is...

A week ago, I was asked for a favor from my friend Kayla, the queen herself of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Grand Pi Chapter.Pageant season is back in full effect at my Alma Mater, Spelman College. What that means is that pageants are hosted by everyone, from Greeks to dorms at Spelman College, Morehouse College, and Clark Atlanta University.  Poor Kayla was in such a conundrum, since one of the judges backed out the day of the Kappa pageant.  She called me to the rescue to help judge the pageant. It was quite an experience watching a pageant from a judges perspective.  Oh, and of course I was accompanied by my sidekick, Rachel.

Antique Addicts

So after our Sunday Funday, I took Rachel to two antique stores, both in the same shopping plaza. First, we went to Finders Keepers Vintage Finds Antiques, where we spent hours browsing. The great thing about them is they have LAYAWAY! After shopping there, we somehow ended up at Ally's Attic. There we quickly browsed because we did not want to spend our money twice.

My typical Sunday morning, like many of you, begins with waking up on time. This past Sunday, I managed to wake up at the exact time church service started, a repeated struggle of mine. With no hope of  making it to my favorite part of service (Praise & Worship), I decided to call it quits and watch service online. Coincidentally, DaNai called me shortly after to make sure I was heading to service. I hung up with new plans to accompany her to church. We both know spending time together means, wear your thrifted finds!

2 Chainz & 4 Friends

Last Tuesday, Rachel and I hung out with our old high school friend Glorie, who came back in town for a visit. He is doing big things in DC by the way (I had to take a moment to brag)! As usual, the sassy Chanel accompanied us only because it seems I can't go anywhere without her. We headed to Atlanta to Compound, a popular urban club for 2 Chainz birthday/album release party. We charmed the party each in our own individual style. Hope you and Rachel don't mind if I flood this post with some pictures because I LOVED my outfit that night!!!!

All The Single Ladies

This past Saturday was truly a night to remember! So here is the quick background info, I've had the opportunity to intern with costume designer/wardrobe stylist Lorianne Coppin on the set of the TV show 'Single Ladies' on Vh1. The season has neared the end of filming and I was invited to the wrap party.  I was accompanied by, you guessed it, the "Sassy" Chanel! The party took place at the sumptuous Georgian Terrace hotel in their restaurant and bar, the Livingston. To top off a night of great dancing and a room full of beautiful people, there was an open bar!! What more could two young ladies ask for, besides free drinks?!
                  Chanel and I decided to go for a beaded look, mixing both fun and elegance!

Queen of the Jungle...Rawr!!!!

I spent some quality time with my girl Chanel this past weekend.  We were looking to spend our night in a different atmosphere, so we headed to Buckhead, best known for its bars.  Originally, the plan was to go bar hopping, but we spent the night at one spot. We had a great time sipping on our drinks, adorning the dance floor, and watching girls twerk Miley Cyrus style.  The highlight of the night was of course, all about the FIT!

Flea Market Frenzy

I was advised to check out the Fairfax Flea Market once I got to L.A. FFFM is the place to be every Sunday from 9am to 5pm at Fairfax High School. I was pleased to find an endless parking lot filled with fine vintage pieces of jewelry, clothing and even furniture. I planned to look everywhere before making any purchases. Surprisingly, I left the market with countless shopping bags. To make my experience even better, it was only a $3 entrance fee! I look forward to debut of my fabulous finds in the near future. And for my readers interested in visiting FFFM, bring lots of CASH!!

For Labor Day weekend, I flew out to visit my bestfriend in Los Angeles, Califonia. Both of us being unfamiliar with LA we went out Friday night to Santa Monica Pier for some fair fun! We enjoyed powdered sugar funnel cakes and a brightly lit ferris wheel bringing back our childhood memories. Shortly after, we raised the bar and went out to Ma'Kai Lounge for some great drinks, dancing and mingling. To top the night off, I realized having a good time didnt mean spending a lot of my money. We were lucky enough to have free entry and I received 3 tasteful drinks for the price of one.

Photo Shoot!

It would not have been right if we didn't take the time to have a mini photo session after our scrumptious dessert and girl talk!
