Sometimes you think you know someone, then you see them in a different light and you get a whole new perspective of that person. You identify with them, empathize with them, you might even disagree with them or wonder what the heck were they thinking??? lol But in any event, you get insight.
My life is crazy...fun...some days? yawn! lol...but definitely BLESSED!
Take this journey with me...and again Welcome to MYYYYY world! ;)

"Cocktails With Belle"
"Cocktails With Belle" was a fun way of meeting the author/blogger herself, Demetria L. Lucas. I thought it was going to be more about her book "A Belle In Brooklyn: The Go-To Girl For Advice", but rather it was "a way to meet my readers".
The beautiful Belle is a charming hostess, and it felt more like a hangout with friends than an "event".
Demetria Lucas a.k.a. @abelleinbk rocking this cute pink number
(reminiscent of a modern day "Saaaaaandra Clark" from "227")
and the shoes were chic too!
I MUST have missed the memo because the majority of the attendees were fabulously dressed, and the shoe game???? CRAY!
I, on the other hand, jetted outta work like a fat kid at a weigh-in, and ended up looking like I was auditioning for "Who Wants To Be a Hobo?"
Ok so I know the invite said "Cocktails With Belle"; I dropped the ball on this one OKAY?!
Here I am with Belle...she didn't hesitate to take a photo with me,
as a matter of fact she was super-gracious
but I KNOW she is thinking "who invited this hobo to my party?"
My hair looked a hot mess and plopping this hat on my head didn't help as you can see. People probably thought I was a "bongo dread" (Trini slang for huge matted dread locks) or something.
Mental note to self: comb hair and look human next time.
We indulged in red velvet cupcakes from @cakemanraven
They were so good!
Hey if you're gonna break one of your New Year's Resolutions,
