I took a trip to New Orleans with good friend Ja’Lissa [who go graciously went with me even though she was under the weather :-)] for my 25th Birthday which is today by the way [insert Birthday cabbage patch :-)]. We had a great time in NOLA, ate some delicious food, took in some great and not so great sites and did a little shopping…

At my apartment before we left…

Headed to Bourbon Street…

Hand Grenades, best drink in NOLA!

Pissed off this alien because I didn’t give him a dollar… eeek!LOL

Got 3 free rides on this mechanical bull! First time ever riding one!

Two seconds later…

Yeah, I was pretty terrible at it. LOL

Saturday morning Breakfast at this great place called Stanley in Jackson Square.

Oops! Wasn’t ready!

That’s more like it!

Delicious corned beef hash, breakfast potatoes and poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce served with french bread! Yummy!

Tons of art on display on Jackson Square…

Can’t remember the name of this church, but nevertheless it was beautiful…

I love Henna Tattoos!

Ja’Lissa at the smoothie stand in the French Market…

The famous and crazy busy Cafe Du Monde!

No food, Beignets ONLY! LOL


Headed to dinner at Mr. B’s Bistro in the French Quarter! Sorry no pics of the shoes but I am wearing DEBA pumps, I wore them here too.

This is a Bebe body con dress, I got it on sale this past winter. It was my first time wearing it [shopaholic confessions]…

My hair was amazing this weekend. This was a flat twist out with Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking gel, see the post on it here.

Close up!

Ja’Lissa looking fierce with her color blocking skirt and blazer!

Waiting for the Valet…

5 stars for the BBQ Shrimp at Mr. B’s Bistro. It was delicious, the sauce was AMAZING, but it was super messy though. They literally put a bib on you, I even flicked a little bit on my friend Ja’Lissa across the table. LOL. Luckily I had my Tide pen on deck. 🙂

Chocolate Molten Cupcake with Vanilla Bean ice cream, compliments of Mr. B.

Next stop, The Hookah on Decatur Street.


In line waiting to eat breakfast at the delicious Camelia Grill, open since 1946!

The “Who Dats” riding around the French Quarter had me rolling! LOL!


That’s all folks!


Happy Birthday to me!!!!
