Shopping Day!

I ventured out to find some amazing clothes and sure enough, returned with 5 designer blouses, 3 pairs of shorts, a pair of pants and an incredible leather purse for only 7 DOLLARS! Number one reason I never go to the mall: thrift store shopping is way more worth it! More posts coming up soon, as I wear all of my new items!





2013 Blues Music Awards Weekend: Hard Rock Cafe Memphis, & Rum Boogie Cafe

Saturday May 11, 2013 was a party from sunrise to sunset! First stop was Hard Rock Cafe, Memphis where I witnessed such tremendous talent congregate on one stage. King Fish, a newcomer to the blues scene, stunned the audience with his guitar playing and vocals that one would never expect from a 14 yr old.

By nightfall, Beale Street was alive with the spirit of the blues-check out the amazing video footage of the performances @ the Rum Boogie Cafe!

Stay tuned! Up next tomorrow is photo/video of our trip to Helena, Arkansas and show highlights from Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the 2013 Blues Music Awards in Memphis, TN. The week-long trip included much sightseeing, and visits to popular local nightclubs to watch amazing musical performances in Tennessee, and Mississippi.

I also visited Cherry Street-a historical entertainment district located in Helena, Arkansas. I met so many talented blues musicians and singers, such as: Diunna Greenleaf, John Primer, Cassie Taylor, and Mud Morganfield – to name a few. Here is the photo documentation of my trip! There are more photographs to come (as well as video) so stay tuned!
