Beautiful people in a bar

Their names are Courtney and Nathan. I met them in a bar on Cinco de Mayo. It just happened to be taco Tuesday, so Te’Kila was especially crowded. We shared a table until a separate one came available. They are awesome.


Sometimes you are reminded that you have other gifts

This is Anne Marie. She is modeling a big loc cap that she purchased from The Happy Hooker. Taking these photos of her reminded me that I am also pretty good at capturing images.

She was initially unsure about the pics until she saw them, and then she loved them.

This is one of my all-time favorite Michael Jackson songs and videos. He was so amazing. I cannot believe it has been six years. We miss you, Michael.

I am surrounded by beautiful people

This is Tiffany. She photographs well. She rocks hats by The Happy Hooker. She has a beautiful spirit. She is a part of my story.

Crocheting is a hobby of mine that has turned into a profitable side hustle. I make hats and sell them. Tiffany has modeled many of them, and so I made her this one as a thank you. She loved it, and she agreed to model it for me. It fits her locs rather nicely, don’t you think?

Pretty Brown Eyes

My eyes are my best feature I think. Well, my eyes and my lips. Also, I have a really big forehead.

Avocados are delicious

The simplest foods are the most delicious. Having this for lunch the other day made me want to eat like this more often. I envision it as a salad, with avocado, basil, tomato, and crushed black pepper.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: ¬†the premiere of Rihanna’s video for “Bitch Better Have My Money.” She directed it, and it’s awesome.

Blondie’s Deborah Harry turns 70 today

I love Blondie. I love Debbie Harry. Refer to last year’s birthday post and track list to explore some good music from Blondie with Debbie Harry on lead vocals.

Happy Birthday, Debbie!

I love me some Rihanna, but when I think of “Bitch Betta Have My Money,” what pops into my head is the AMG version from the early 90s. My cousin Sharmayne and I wore this song out. Now you can too.
