10 Amazing Things to Do In NYC This Fall |Explore NYC

Fall is finally here and I am finally in my happy place! While I’m not a full-fledged pumpkin spice girl, fall is hands down my favorite season. I love the fall colors, the smell, sweater weather, all things pumpkin and apple, & most importantly the lead up to the holidays.

Should I Take My Toddler to See SMALLFOOT? |No Spoiler Review

Last month, RJ and I got to check out an advanced screening of SMALLFOOT at the Crosby Street Hotel (did you know they had a whole movie theatre in there?! Check out my friend Sanaa’s hotel review).

8 East Coast Festivals Every Black Girl NEEDS to Be At This Summer

Festival season is upon us and I suffer from major FOMO every year. I find that I always find out about festivals at the last minute and then I don't have the proper time to get my life/coins together so that I can attend. After going to Curlfest for the first time last year, I'm determined to hit as many festivals as possible this year and I've created this list of festivals that are (mainly) on the east coast JUST so I don't forget where I need (want) to be and when. If you love good vibes, good food and good music then you probably want to check a few of these out too!
