DC has always been an amazing place to visit. From our historic monuments and museums, to the Cherry Blossoms that let us DC folks know that the Spring season has arrived. We have a culture like no other with our own music, Go-Go, and the hippest slang spoken with the slightest southern drawl that no matter where you are on this planet, you can hear it and know that the person speaking is from DC. If someone calls you a bamma it could either be a term of endearment, or a notice that you may want to change your outfit. One important thing to know is “that joint” means a lot of different things in this city, so don’t take it literally.

If you’re planning on visiting, invest in a great place to stay and live as a local. DC neighborhoods have some of the best places to dine and engage in community events. An Airbnb is the best option to truly feel all that DC living has to offer. Here are some of my favorite Airbnb’s that are close to everything you’ll want and need on your visit. They all have parking but are also just steps away from our metro transit systems, and if you love to bike, they’re a hop, skip and jump down the block to Capital Bikeshare rentals. Take a spin around the city, you’ll even have your own lane.

The desire to re-create this blog has been on my heart for the past two years. Quite a few things have been on my heart but for some reason I’ve been overcome with fear… fear of failing and to be quite honest, fear of negative opinions. I continued to make excuse after excuse for delaying this. It’s not the right time, I need to focus on my 9-5 career and selling homes, I have to focus on getting my daughter through high school, I gotta get her in college and most recently I have to pay her college tuition. My most famous excuse, I need to lose some more weight. Yes, I do and I’ve been trying to lose the same 15 pounds for the last 7 years. I won’t give up because the desire is still there. That’s when it hit me, the desire to revisit this blog is still there. I can’t shake it. I’m at a point in life where I feel like I just need to really live and be me so here I am.

My goal is to share with you everything I love when it comes to DC and fashion with a peppering of my island background. I’ll do my best to make sure my contents worthy of your attention. Let me know your thoughts in the comments space. Your positive feedback is welcome, it’ll help me grow and develop better content.

Thank you for joining me on this adventure and please be sure to sign up on your right to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Until later… best.
