2017 Wrap Up // ATBA Lifestyle + Inspiration

Hey Guys! As we approach the end of the year and prepare to enter a new one I just wanted to do a wrap up of 2017. Firstly, I’d like to thank each and every one of you who continuously take the time out of your day to read my blog posts, comment and also share them on your social media pages.

My blog is meant to showcase my lifestyle as well as inspire others. As you can see my lifestyle covers numerous topics from food, travel, my natural hair journey, post grad/young adult life etc; but I also share my personal stories and thoughts in hopes of inspiring at least one person.

thank you!

It honestly means a lot to me, and shows me that with consistency this space that I created online can be a good one. For my wrap up I decided to share a few things you guys seemed to love about my blog this year. Continue reading “2017 Wrap Up // ATBA Lifestyle + Inspiration”

Eat Outs // OJ’s Beach Bar & Restaurant

Hey Guys!!

This past Sunday took us a little south of the island in search of some good food.
The first place we went to was closed, so we quickly decided on a second option which was relatively close by. It also happened to be my first time being at this restaurant.


The general atmosphere was very relaxing and more than expected when entering first. There’s a wide variety of seating available and we opted for upstairs which had the open view of the sea.

MTV VMAs Review

Listen. Listen. Listen. !!

I don’t even know where to start! Award shows are not usually my thing, but this one had me. From the outfits, to the performances……to the speeches, just WOW! So where to begin?

The Red Carpet

At 7:00 p.m. there I was flipping through my channels trying to find what station the red carpet was showing on. Went through all 100 channels, looked through the guide and no luck. So how was I seeing pictures of celebrities on Instagram? Only to realize the next day (today) that it was being streamed online. Thanks a lot MTV.

The one time I decide to go out with some not so close people, and well it was a FAIL. Okay, maybe it wasn’t so bad, but just not what I expected. [They’re hardly to blame]

If you read my previous posts you would have known by now that I recently (almost 2 months now, lol) moved to Miami. I also mentioned that I’m down for adventure, but it’s hard doing so solo and I didn’t have any friends here. However, I then realized that one of my close friends’ brother lived 15 minutes away. So on one of my day offs I hit him up and asked if he wanted to go visit Wynwood Walls with me. After all it was first on my “Adventure Miami” list.It didn’t seem like a bad idea at first, because he was chill enough to hang with, and would probably be a handy photographer to take my pictures.
