I’m headed to South Beach today to share in Blogalicious ’10. It’s been a crazy week (read: sinus infection/mostly bed-ridden) but I’m looking forward to meeting some of my favorite bloggers and reuniting with the folks I met last year. See y’all on Monday!

I’m really excited to have been asked to speak at Blogalicious 10 this year. In its sophomore year and produced by MamaLaw, the conference is a celebration of the diversity in our blogosphere. Last year was remarkable. The sessions, the connections that were made “in real life” and the entertainment/parties were breathtaking. If you haven’t considered attending, you really should. [...]

If I can’t have fun yet, my friends certainly should (but damn them for going without me).One of my favorite bloggers and all around most stylish peeps has been at Martha’s Vineyard for the past week.

Let me see. My obsession with Harriette Cole began nearly 15 years ago when I came upon her manual of manners, How To Be: A Guide To Contemporary Living for African Americans (but truth be told, most of the content transcends race and is just good, old-fashioned home training). I have enjoyed following her career as a tastemaker, journalist, lifestyle [...]
One of the perks of my job…remember, this is a job for me now…is meeting some of the world’s most fabulous people.

Last Saturday was an extremely rewarding one as I actually finished my first full 5K race. I’d been invited to participate in a remarkable experience by my dear friends, The Blog Rollers. Having created a campaign called “Race and Relax” under their “Run, Wifey,Run” division, they invited twenty women to get moving and prepare for the Virginia-Highland Summerfest 5k here [...]
