jump man

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

i love living back in dc, its a totally different city from the one i left 10 years ago.  living in new york city can make anyone pretty jaded about their hometown, i was no exception.  but exploring the new dc has been so much fun!  learning about all the hot spot restaurants, chill hang outs and kute little boutiques has been an adventure.  maybe that's what got me jumping?... no?  lol!  i've got bunnies baby!!  I don't know why, but i felt so inclined to jump!  jump for joy!  jump because i had "jordan's" help!  idk, but it was one fun tiring experience.

on this particular night, i planned on wearing an elaborate outfit with a skirt, pumps, the whole nine.  i scratched that real quick, i'm much more comfortable when i'm comfortable, lol!!  sneaks are my go-to for comfy.  anyone who knows me, knows that i am obsessed with sneakers, i may not have a large collection, but i'm proud of my classics.  my cement jordan retro 3's don't fall short, they are my favorites.  i decided to pair them with a simple tee and [drum roll] leather pants!!!  i can never get enough of the leather, most times i have to tell myself "put the leather down. you wore it three times this week and it's only monday. -_-"  no outfit is complete without the pièce de résistance, this time around it was my vintage MCM suzy wong bag, of course i added a little #blind@29 with the leather tassels.

because of them, we can...

photographer, eunique jones gibson curated an ingenious campaign for black history month, "because of them we can...", highlighting 28 photos of influential african-americans.  each photo features a child emulating an african-american that has inspired our vast history. 

eunique so eloquently states her inspiration, "I recently realized that my lens can also be my microphone.  For Black History Month, I wanted to create a campaign that would empower and excite young people about their history and their future in a creative and yet relatable way.  I thought about my two sons and how they were both born during President Barack Obama's election and re-election. How awesome is that?! From there, I began to think about all of the individuals, past and current, who have and/or continue to blaze new trails and pave the way for the future.  Because of Them, We Can."

lucky for us, eunique is continuing her campaign beyond black history month to further motivate and inspire.  please support this effort!  posters and calendars are available for purchase, here.

ps - i waited until today to publish this post, because i wanted all 28 photos in the series.  i stalked eunique's facebook page until she posted the 28th photo [michelle & barack "yes we can"].  when it was revealed, i was so overwhelmed and proud!

avery's on h street

don't you love it when you walk into your favorite local spot and you're referred to you by name?  it makes you feel special right?  reminds you of the cheers theme song... "where everybody knows your naaame! [doon doon doon] and you're always glad you caaaame!" [i def just sung that out loud] lol!!  

well, i found my own cheers, an awesome new lounge in washington dc, avery's on h street.  located in the heart of one of dc's most notible neighborhoods, the h street corridor, avery's on h street doesn't disappoint.  from the comfortable and inviting decor, you'll lose track of time sipping on their signature #coolout drink while enjoying tunes from various local dj's.  the enviornment is always pleasant and the proprietor, avery o. leake, acknowledges every patron as if they are family.

stop by avery's on h street, 1370 h street, n.e. washington dc.  check out events and happy hour drink specials on avery's on h street's instagram here.

have you ever noticed how you get LOST on instagram??  one second you're looking through your timeline, then you click on some random hashtag where a picture catches your attention, the next thing you know you're on that persons timeline, then you click on a person who is tagged in a picture and now you've been on instagram for an hour and you're like "how did i even get here?"  lol!  this happens to me all the time, i know it happens to you too, even if you don't admit it ;) but i digress... 

i've been having so much fun lately!  and it's all been caputred on my instagram :)  from experiencing dc restaurant week [thanks to rock creek social club], dc auto show, university of md eastern shore homecoming, my favorite happy hour at policy and just plain ol' hangin with my friends.   le bon temps roule! #letgoodtimesroll!
