Being An Ally In Savannah

“Some of my best friends are gay” is something I wouldn’t say, but it is actually true.  I have many gay friends and I have learned a lot about the LGBTQ community from them.  I even did a presentation on how to be an ally on social media three years ago. Being out in the […]

BlogHer17: The Pressure Is A Privilege

Jovan, Nicole and Nichelle at BlogHer17

It’s hard to recap a conference like BlogHer especially when you spent three days meeting new people, listening to panels, being inspired by speakers and learning new information.

Savannah Eats, Laughs and Drinks

1970 vodka

The 1970 vodka cocktail is delicious! I met the owner, Ikeda Feingold; and I really like the flavor of the vodka which has 19 ingredients including fruit and botanicals. It’s also 70 proof. Plus, the branding and look of the bottle are super cool. April 27th- April 29th Gypsy World is having a Vintage Extravaganza […]

FCW Society Variety Show
