Styled By London’s Beautii

Happy Tuesday! I haven't written a hair post/hair update in ages. I've been rocking the same hairstyle since December, crochet braids with FreeTress water wave hair. I lacked motivation to discuss my hair because it was the same ish. I got tired and wanted my hair away from my face. I opted for big feeding cornrows. ...

Artist Files: Dennis Owusu-Ansah

Happy Friday to ya! I love the artwork of  New York-based Ghanaian artist Dennis Owusu-Ansah. I get so excited whenever I see his artwork on my Instagram timeline.

My First Time as An Aso Ebi

Happy Monday and Happy May! Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being an Aso Ebi for an aunt/family friend (pictured below) celebrating her birthday! She was having a thanksgiving service at her church. She asked my sister (pictured below) and I to celebrate with her in giving thanks to God for adding another year to her life. Along with ...

Spring Hiking

Happy Spring! I think it's safe to say that it's FINALLY spring here in the DMV. Spring officially started on March 20th but the weather has been off. It randomly snowed almost two weeks ago and it was really cold last week. However, spring really showed up and showed out this past weekend. It's been showing out ...

Web Series Wednesday: The Name Project

Happy Web Series Wednesday! I really enjoying this web series entitled The Name Project. According to the director Antoinette Brock: The Name Project seeks to understand how our names shape our character and the role it plays in our identity. Some reflect our cultural backgrounds. Others are indicative of our parents’ values, interest and ideologies. We all have a name, ...

Dining at Founding Farmers

Happy Tuesday! Today's post features my favorite restaurant Founding Farmers. It's a lovely restaurant to dine outdoors at especially during the spring and even during the summer (when it's not too hot). Founding Farmers has three locations in the DMV, see here. I prefer the Potomac location to the DC location because parking is convenient and free, the restaurant is less ...

Lunch at Eggspectation

Happy Friday! It's getting warmer and warmer in the DMV. I am so happy! As a result, you can expect more Out 'n' About posts, God willing. I like to take full advantage of the warm weather mainly by walking around outside, acting like a tourist and going to free outdoor events. Somewhere in that list you ...
