For BHM2015 Macy's held The Soul Era events around the country. In cities such as NYC and Atlanta, stylist, designer, rock mom, and everybody's aunty in their head June Ambrose and celebrity costume designer Johnetta Boone held panel discussions and showcased styles for the 60s and 70s era. Though they did not make a stop in my fair city of Memphis, we still got in on the fun. I along with my friend and photographer Elle Perry checked out the local event hosed by designer, lifestyle blogger, and Memphian Andrea Fenise . The even was filled with fashion, performances, food, and styles of the 60s and 70s. Students and faculty from STAX Music Academy preformed hits from the Soul Era and Bridging Soul Production gave a performance that got the audience involved in dancing to the hits. I was able to catch several looks, that were styled by Andrea Fenise featuring denim, jumpsuits, and flowy dresses. To top if off Dindie's Soul catered: cornbread, greens, candied yams...YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

We are well into 2015 and while soo many people are flocking to the gyms for the new year, I am dedicated to making my home the most adult looking space possible. I have amassed a pretty decent collection of mid-century modern furniture thanks to my love of thrifting. I now want to give my space a little more, polished home of two. and less museum of all things Mad Men.

I probably make this pico de gallo dish about twice a week. Seriously, it is soo good and really simple and easy to make. This is great for a quick snack or as a topping or fillers in fajitas, nachos, and even eggs. Yes eggs, you'll thank me later.
