“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” – Mark Twain
I got a lot of weird looks and interesting questions when I talked to friends, family, coworkers, etc. about my plans to vacation in Thailand. There was a lot of “Why are you going there?”, “Black people don’t visit places like that.” and “What would you possibly want to see and do there?”. I’ve come to realize that traveling and exploring the world is not for everyone. A lot of people barely make it outside of their home state, so venturing outside of the States to Asia is beyond comprehension for some. While the Mr. and I got weird looks when discussing our travel plans, we chuckled on the inside and realized that our minds’ curiosity stretched far beyond our birth place, the neighboring cities and partying in Vegas every chance we get. The desire to explore, experience different people and cultures, and see some world outside of our “norm” is far more intriguing and satisfying….and we are “a okay” with that. 🙂
Thailand has so much to offer! I’d done a good amount of research prior to our trip and was adamant about planning a few excursions outside of the city. I really wanted to experience some of the great things that Thailand had to offer outside of Bangkok. There’s so much to do and see, and while I wanted to do and see everything, time just wouldn’t allow it. We decided on a full day tour that included the floating market, a tour of the war cemetery and bridge over the River Kwai, Tiger Temple and the elephant park. Continue reading
I have a serious love affair with traveling. I boarded a plane headed to Kenya, Africa a few months after graduating college and never looked back. I took a job as an auditor at a black-owned Accounting firm in Washington, D.C. and had no clue that this job would ignite a traveling bug in me that I never knew existed. If you would have asked me if I was interested in traveling the world prior to graduating college, I’m sure I would have replied with a simple “Nah…not really”. But after taking my first job and connecting with several other auditors/avid travelers and hearing their travel stories, I was ready to hit the road…and I did just that. Continue reading
I know…I know…It’s been forever since I’ve updated my blog! I got a little caught up with work and just life in general, and I completely fell off of with my blogging. Well, I’m back! I must say that I’ve definitely missed talking hair, style, food and whatever the hell else I find myself rambling about on here. That’s what I love most about blogging; it gives you a platform to share the things you love and your experiences with the world. With that said, let’s talk hair. 🙂
We were in need of a break from reality. The everyday hustle and bustle of our nation’s capital, the sometimes lengthy commutes and vigorous corporate hustle had us eagerly anticipating a vacation…a quick getaway to relax, regroup and recoup to continue on our journey to the top. *hehehe* I’m a bit of a control freak, so I thoroughly enjoy taking the reigns and mapping out our excursions. I’m convinced HE loves it as just as much, since he always has a huge smile from ear to ear once we reach our final destination…our living quarters that I’ve arranged for the next 4-5 days.
Why not start this year off with some awesomeness for my fashion-lovers. I ran across the KTR Collection on Instagram and instantly fell in love with every single piece of clothing they offered. The designer puts together such sexy, chic and classy looks that instantly catch the eye. I absolutely LOVE her style! Her boutique offers dresses, two-piece skirt sets and mostly skirts, many of which can be custom-made to appease your desired length, size and color.
