4 Podcast you Need to Listen To!

I discovered podcasts maybe two years ago and I have been hooked ever since. I listen to mostly self development podcasts that offer advice on how to live your best life and it's usually how I like to start my day. Here's a list of my favorite ones that I think everyone should listen to as they have something to offer everyone!

1. GirlBoss Radio - This is hosted by author and Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso. Every week she has a different guest and they discuss success and what it mean to them as well as how they got to where they are today. At the end of every interview Sophia asks her guests to share their "girl boss moment" which is basically a time in their week where they felt they were on top of their shit. So inspiring!

2. Style Your Mind - Hosted by author Cara Alwill Leyba (Girl Code) this podcasts basically chronicles all the ups and downs that come with being an entrepreneur and Cara also interviews different people who share their experiences and stories throughout life.

3. For the Culture (JustinJ and Adrianxpression) - I love this podcast! Not only is it so funny and entertaining, it touches on all the social issues that we are facing today as well as the messy stuff you see on The Shade Room, they talk about it all! Hosted by YouTubers JustinJ and Adrian (of Adrianxpression) this podcast will having you dying of laughter while keeping you well informed!

5. Myleik Teele's podcast - The founder of Curl Box, Myleik Teele offers real life advice as well as advice for up and coming entrepreneurs who are trying to figure out how to navigate life. Myleik answers real life questions from her listeners and what I love about her podcast is that she is so straight forward in her answers. It's like talking to that one friend who you know is gonna give you the real deal even if it hurts your feelings (we all need a friend like that).  Her podcast is a must listen, especially if you are trying yo start your own business.

Andy Warhol at the High

Last weekend my boyfriend and I got the chance to see the amazing Andy Warhol exhibit at the High Museum of Art here in Atlanta. I'm pretty sure you all know who Andy Warhol is but if you do not know, he was an American artist, director and producer mostly known for his artistry during the pop art movement. Before seeing this exhibit, the image that always sticks out in my mind when Warhol's name is brought up is the Campbell Soup screen prints. I can remember seeing those images in JR high school, thinking "why the hell would someone paint campbell soup cans?" The exhibit at the high museum included those prints as well as over 250 prints by Warhol that were produced over the course of 4 decades. And from seeing the range of his art and learning the inspiration behind it, I finally recognize why Warhol was/is so Iconic. I snapped a few shots of my faves from the exhibit so I could share with you guys. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did!

My trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico!

Hey Guys, I know it's been a little while since I posted a blog but that's because I was on a mini vacation/girls trip in Puerto Rico. It was my first time there and I had a blast! We stayed in the city of San Juan in the Condado Plaza Hilton Hotel minutes away from the Condado Lagoon. 

We were about 25 minutes away from old San Juan, where we visited the Castillo San Felipe Del Morro, a national historic site in San Juan that was absolutely beautiful. Old San Juan houses the best shops and restaurants where I had my first taste of mofungo, a very popular dish in PR.

After visiting Old San Juan, we visited Donde Olga, basically a street food place close to the beach that had the best empanadas and pinchos (bbq meat on a stick) that I have ever had, literally! The food was everything in Puerto Rico.

 I also got visit Luquillo beach and tour the Laguna Grande on kayaks and even jumped into the water. It was around 9 pm at night so all you could see was the ocean and moonlight, so beautiful and definitely a site to see. Puerto Rico is definitely a beautiful place with so many things to see I would love to visit there again. And if you've never been, go! The food alone is worth the trip!
