It’s a rainy Saturday morning here at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia Ca. Not really derby weather, but I had to make due.
The Kentucky Derby has been around since 1875 A horse race held in Louisville Kentucky. Here in LA we sometimes like to replicate. We joined Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. along with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. who hosted a fun classy event.
Despite the rain everyone looked Great! We danced , ate some good food catered by Dulan’s Soul Food, smoked cigars, drank mint juelps , took pictures, judged who had the best hat and the best outfit….Oh. Can’t forget… made bets on the horses.
Here are some of the photos from Derby Day!
A lady should be 2 things… classy & Fabulous!
Breaking it down!
Fashion is Everything at the derby!
My foodie chronicles led me to LA Weekly’s Burgers & Beers yesterday. Unlimited slider samples , and beer pours from LA Greatest burger restaurant and craft breweries.

It’s been a minute since I updated you on my latest Foodie runs around LA. I’ve been having too much fun eating and exploring my city. I remember a time where I thought LA was soooo boring aside from going to the beach and amusement parks. As I’ve began to explore LA more I’ve discovered so many cool spots. As I’ve gotten older my interest have changed; and now I’m realizing that I love learning and exploring new things where my adventures expanded.
I hope you continue to grow, and develop new interests as well, I hope you step out your comfort zone to try something new! Here are a few new spots around LA.
Little Damage Ice Cream shop located at 700 S. Spring street Downtown Los Angeles. It’s a cute spot serving up unusual flavors. I’m taking a lick at “Unicorn Tears”. It was delish! I also loved the neon sign behind me. It was the perfect backdrop to my photo shoot. The ice cream shop also has a photo booth inside. How cool!
Photo booth fun! excuse the weird sexy pose…lol!
Downtown Los Angeles has a lot of cool spots to explore. The Last Bookstore is a quirky spot to find all kinds of books and cute gift shops upstairs. They also have great spots throughout the book store for cool photo ops such as this one:
Next time you feel bored, plan an adventure around your city!
Good Morning Beloved!
You are capable of anything you are willing to work for. Set your sights on those things that make you feel alive! Wasted time can’t exist in a life that’s headed for victory! Maximize your time and rise up!
May your Monday be filled with quality time , and effectiveness.
We often wonder why do we exist? Growing up I was a mature teen who thought a lot about my future. I would always wonder “What’s my purpose”? Living in a world full of influences, choices , and information can turn into confusion.
I always knew I had a purpose however, it was a challenge to really narrow it down. Being raised in church, I knew somehow my purpose was connected to GOD. Once I developed my own relationship with God through prayer, worship, and studying the word of God I discovered my purpose. I had to seek God, the one who created me to find out my assignment, or my purpose in this world.
I’m so grateful that I know who I am… My identity is found in Christ for He is the source of all creation. I would like to encourage anyone who may be searching, and trying to figure out the meaning of their life to seek out God. What that means is be open to receive the truth , and love from our heavenly Father. It’s not about religion, it’s about you, and God connecting on level where He is guiding you through life to fulfill the purpose He created you to carry out while on this earth.
Live Life On Purpose!
Celebrated Black History Month with A Toast 2 Africa presented by “Awareness After Dark”. An Opulent evening of wine tasting , cigars , appetizers with live art ,music spoken word, and dance performances to benefit charitites focused on impoving health and social justice disparities in Africa .
I have an indication that spring will be full of abundance! I’m excited about the harvest that is to come. Blooming bountifully ahead. It’s been raining consistently for the last two, or three weeks, I believe God is supernaturally preparing the soil to bring forth a prosperous year!
