THE WEEKEND PT 2: Wednesday is when it all began

I honestly had a long ass weekend. The festivities for me started in the middle of last week. It was like Wednesday was Friday, Thursday was Friday Plus and Friday was Super Friday. Or whatever. I’m sure you understand the idea.

Okay so I was in limbo for literally two weeks about going out. I live my life as a hermit so getting out of the house can sometimes be rare. I’m that friend that says I’m busy when I’m clipping my toenails in front of my computer screen. I’ll think about it literally translates into but I need a nap. We’ll see is another of way of saying I’ll probably forget and accidentally plan something less eventful in its place. Yeah, terrible but I’m becoming more sociable.

My first stop of the week was an event named Art Babes. Art and Babes, yes. Beautiful art and the creative women behind each piece. All flaunting and supporting each other. It was such a joyous event. Everyone came out for it even the lil babies. Everything (the art, refreshments, music) was provided by women and the ability to work together as a unit was represented quite well. Once all the adults left, aside from the beautifully aged couple ball rooming their hearts away, a party started. One I wasn’t expecting but appreciated soon after! Continue Reading

The WEEKEND PT 1: Murals & Sliders & Pie

For a long time I’ve been a hermit. Totally disregarding the outside world and hiding out in a fort made of a quilt and several pillows. For a few reasons: I need to focus, sleep and…it’s cold out. But now, It’s warming up and I’m fueled by the sunshine therefore this weekend I decided to head out instead of burying myself in my beanbag.

Saturday morning I decided early in the day that I wouldn’t be going out. I was tired from the work week and felt the need to unwind. I’m also┬áin the midst of balancing work, my blog and having a car; something I’m not used to. Shit can be stressful. Well, further into the day (I was at work) I told myself, “DAMN THIS”, and decided that I would go to an event called Murals & Sliders that was held at The Baltimore Gallery. I did my make-up and “gtfo”…

This was my first time at Murals & Sliders and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was real chill like. Artists was able to showcase their artwork (Good shit to Tony Rave, Sheefy, Candy Slice, and Freddy Diaz), There was live painting going on by Jimbo, burger lookin’ cupcakes from Neiko and Chicken n’ Waffle sliders…from whom I don’t know but that chicken. OMG. My favorite thing about the event is that, as horrible as it may sound, there weren’t any performances. I was able to direct my attention to good friends, Jameson, food and art. Quite refreshing.

Thank you Honey for the photos and putting together a solid event!
