I’m feeling like a rock star. Again. Even more so than the night I posted about seeing Padma Lakshmi at Barnes & Noble. Fellow bloggers will attest, it feels good to get “likes” on a post, but even better to get new followers. Even if a person is not a blogger, chances are he or … More You Like Me
I’ve wanted to read Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates for months. I read about it in magazines and online, spotted fellow commuters reading it and saw it listed as a National Book Award finalist. I remember seeing a paparazzi shot of Jill Scott carrying it outside of an airport. I figured I’d … More Turn the Page?
I’m feeling like a rock star. Well, not really, but I am feeling kinda special. Two of my Facebook and Instagram posts garnered a lot (for me) of “likes” and comments.

I passed time painting my nails while talking on the phone with … More Goodwatch: The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story
It’s only the first of February, but I’m already thinking about spring cleaning. My apartment, like my life, is organized chaos. Container Store and Bed, Bath & Beyond are two of my favorite stores in which I can spend hours. My apartment is neat and tidy. The two bookcases in my living room are arranged … More 5 Things I Need to Declutter from My Apartment & Life
