SHOP SMALL HOLIDAY GUIDE

Not today, Amazon. NOT. TO. DAY. It’s time to show some love to some of my favorite small businesses, including fashion, home, local, and Black-owned. Let’s get shopping!

BECOMING ANTI-RACIST TOGETHER

Change is powerful, yet uncomfortable. Change takes time, and it takes courage. In order to change, we must first swallow our pride. Next, look ourselves in the mirror, have the self-awareness to see what needs to be changed, and take one step forward to initiate the change. It’s time we get comfortable with the uncomfortable. That’s simply the only way we will get better. It’s the truly the only way we can move past social injustices and move towards becoming anti-racist together.

COCKTAIL OF THE WEEK: FRENCH 75

Since we are all holed up at home quarantine-style, I thought now would be the PERFECT time to launch my MOST REQUESTED SERIES: COCKTAIL OF THE WEEK.

CYBER MONDAY

Hi guys! I am still not sure how I feel about Black Friday, so I did not promote any of the sales.  Yes, there are some AMAZING sales that allow people to save a lot of money around Christmas-time.  But on the flip-side, I feel like Black Friday keeps getting moved up each year.  For example, many stores were opening (and promoting Black Friday) at 6pm on Thursday.  On THANKSGIVING.  So, we spend all day giving thanks, then spend the entire next day fighting over stuff we want.  And to think of all people in retail that ave to leave…
