What Does Luxury Living and the Soft Life Mean to You?

Luxury living transcends mere opulence; it's a deeply personal experience that intertwines comfort, well-being, and the pursuit of refined pleasures. In this blog post, we invite you to explore and define what luxury living means to you. Whether it's the serene simplicity of a well-curated space or the joy derived from life's finer details, your interpretation of luxury is unique and significant.

Defining Luxury
Luxury living goes beyond material possessions; it's a state of mind that encompasses comfort, time, and experiences. It could be the freedom to indulge in exquisite meals, the ability to travel to dream destinations, or the simple pleasure of a quiet evening surrounded by beauty. Take a moment to reflect on what elements elevate your life and make it feel extraordinary.

Comfort and Wellness
For some, luxury living revolves around creating spaces that cocoon them in comfort. Plush furnishings, soft textures, and soothing colors contribute to a sense of opulence within the home. Prioritizing wellness is also a hallmark of luxury living — whether through spa-like bathrooms, fitness routines, or mindfulness practices that nurture both the body and the soul.

Exquisite Experiences
Luxury is often synonymous with memorable experiences. It could be a weekend retreat to a serene destination, savoring a meticulously prepared meal, or attending exclusive events. Consider the experiences that bring you joy and a sense of fulfillment, and how incorporating them into your lifestyle contributes to the luxury you seek.

Quality Over Quantity
In the realm of luxury living, the emphasis is on quality over quantity. This principle extends to possessions, relationships, and experiences. Thoughtfully curated items, meaningful connections, and memorable moments take precedence, creating a life rich in substance and significance.

Personal Style and Expression
Luxury living is an extension of your personal style and taste. Whether it's through fashion choices, home decor, or the way you spend your leisure time, your individual expression adds a layer of authenticity to your luxurious lifestyle. Celebrate your uniqueness and let it shine through in every aspect of your life.

The Freedom of Choice
One of the luxuries that modern life affords is the freedom to choose. Whether it's choosing how you spend your time, who you surround yourself with, or the experiences you pursue, the ability to make choices aligned with your values contributes to a life of luxury and fulfillment.

As we delve into the intricacies of luxury living, it becomes apparent that it's a dynamic concept that evolves with our aspirations and personal growth. What does luxury living mean to you? Perhaps it's a harmonious blend of comfort, experiences, and personal expression that creates a life truly worth savoring. Take the time to explore and define your own version of luxury, and in doing so, elevate every moment to a state of opulence uniquely tailored to your desires.

Happy New Year 2023

Who set a resolution this year?  Well, I didn't!!!
This year I came up with a word and an action for the year.
My word is PRODUCE and my action is PRODUCTION.

My personal loan to you this year is 

I am excited about everything to come this year. I am also thankful for your continued support and I look forward this year to interacting with you more consistently.
I also hope to meet some of the 161K of you that check me out on a daily basis in person.

Currently stalking a venue for my first event of 2023.
I am also doing 12 Trips in 12 Months.
I can't wait to share the deets. 
I am  looking forward to some of you Stamping your Passports and Traveling with me as well.
I have revamped my Vinyl Shop soooo I have the custom Tees and products.
I am also very super super excited about PS MY WORLD dropping in the next couple of weeks.
2023 has already started and I always take a breather around the beginning of the year because I always end the 4th Quarter on a High Note.

So, this month or the first 30 days of this year, I am focusing on Self- Care and Self- Love to get this New Year off  to a great start.


Start by Doing these Challenges the next 30 days. I am an Alpha Female. So most of the time I multitask. I understand if you can't do all in the next 30 days. But I will promise you if you make an effort to complete any of these challenges. One area in your life will be in a better condition. 

On my blog for the Challenges I am going to journal  and do updates on each of the challenges in the next 30 day Period. The challenges end on FEBRUARY 9th and on the 10th we will discuss our next set of challenges.


Challenge #1 100๐Ÿšฒ๐ŸŠ‍♀️๐Ÿƒ‍♀️๐Ÿšถ‍♀️

Doing 100 Miles in 30 Days. That's  equivalent to about 4 miles a day. So on this challenge you can do it a number of ways.
But before you start of course talk to your Healthcare Professional if your health is not the best.
You can do it 2 ways. 2 miles in the morning and 2 in the evening. Or all 4 at one time. Beat the track.
You can Walk, Run, Bike or Swim
Listen its simple. No excuses.
You can get you a piece of paper. Write 1 through 30 or a calendar. Journal your miles and in 30 days we will add everything together to see if we reached the 100 mile mark in 30 days.

Challenge #2 HYDRATE๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฅ›

Water is a vital part and necessity of great Health. What is your water intake? If you are not drinking 7 glasses or 7 water bottles in a day. You are really not doing your body good. Simple change. All water. Drink 7 bottles of water for 30 days. We are not stopping here but let's just get through the first 30 days. DRINK WATER!!!!!

Challenge #3 HEALTHY BODY

Refer back to Challenge  #1. This probably should have been one. Let's Make a point of finding a family care Provider or a regular PCP. Let's get a full physical. Let's see what shape your body is really in. Ok I know you are saying. I don't have health care insurance. Let's start with a plan to save money to do a walk-in at a PCP. Let's take the initiative and say you know what. I am IMPORTANT without a healthy body I have nothing. Google low cost or No cost health care facilities or locations in your area to see if you can at least start with the minimum. Blood pressure, glucose, weight. But I will discuss this further if you commit to Challenge #3.

Challenge #4 MONEY BAG๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ

Let's get our finances in order. We are going to make a budget and a savings Plan. If you are not working or have an income. First step is we are looking for a Job or Hustle in 2023. If you do have a income or job then let's collect all those bills together and tally up what we owe and then come up with a plan to pay. If you have no savings then we can start small and move closer to our goal. But first let's collect the bills together and Tally up who and what we owe. When is it due? Is it pass due?

Challenge #5 CREDIT IS KING๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“Š

Don't run off now. We are working this year. This year will be a life changing year for all of us. Let's talk about credit. What is your credit score? Do you even know? Let's look into finding out the score. Where on the playing field do you fall?  Poor/Fair/Good/Excellent. In this challenge. We are going to go through some fundamental steps of Excellent Credit and the steps you need to take to get there and stay there.

Challenge #6 READING IS FUNDAMENTAL๐Ÿ“”๐Ÿ“•๐Ÿ“—๐Ÿ“˜๐Ÿ“™

Reading, We are going to start off with affirmations and Great Self -Help Books. Put your eyes on 52 books this year. One book each week. Ummm No excuses. Where can I fit time into reading? We will discuss options. Audible books maybe a great option for you. Listen while you are moving. Feed your mind as much as you feed your body and soul.


Soul Searching let's search YOU. Who are you? What do you like and let's spend some quality time with yourself and exploring new things and experiences. This year We really need to find out who are You. This year honestly ask yourself. WHO AM I?

Challenge #8 THE CALENDAR๐Ÿ“†

Let's organize our journey this year. The Calendar. Let's practice saying NO and the importance of organization and being on time and present. Let's get A Calendar and schedule what needs to happen and when. Let's be proactive and inclusive of family members, friends and work. Everything gets entered on The Calendar or hey it doesn't happen. Easy fix to implement in your life if you fill overworked. Of course emergencies do happen. but everyone's emergency isn't yours. Let's Create a Tunnel Vision to PRODUCE.

Challenge#9 I'M A BOSS๐Ÿ“‘

This challenge is for the OK I've did all of the previous things but I really need to just buckle down on some other things. Let's discuss will, life insurances, trusts, investments, businesses and really crossing our Tssss and dotting those Issss.


What is your Vision for this year? What is it that you would like to accomplish?  What is holding you back? Bringing it all together.

A Humble Beginning


Everyone starts some where. The beginning may not be the perfect start or ideal timing but it is the Start. Last week I got an opportunity to go back to my hometown Fort Gaines, Georgia. It is 2 hours and 48 minutes from Atlanta. The Atlantans consider this as the other Georgia. But I consider this my Georgia.


Nope, Im not from fancy pants NYC or LA. As a matter of fact I'm not from a city period. I am proud of my START. Its my start and I am so grateful and honored that it took place here. It is the most beautiful place in the world to me and yes I have been all over the world. When I left Fort Gaines I had big dreams and many opportunities ahead of me. Alone the way the journeys have not always been great or peaches and creme how the country folk say. But again this has been my journey.  I often get emotional when speaking of my town. My town is a family oriented place. everyone knows everyone and you would not just pop up here. Unless of course you knew someone who knew someone who bought you here. Get it.

Fort Gaines beauty can be defined in millions of ways. From the people with colorful characters. to the homecooked meals, to the lake, to the view of the millions of stars, to the fields upon fields, to the quietness of peace, to the no city skyline to the wilderness.

It is a place of gratification and solitude. I have traveled thousands of miles and days to feel this solitude. I have LAUGHED until I could not laugh anymore here and at the same spectrum I have CRIED until I could not cry anymore here.

It is a beautiful secret that I hold in my heart each day as a fight the hustle and bustle of city life. I often wisp myself back there with a phone call or two. I am constantly reminded how proud my Fort Gaines is of me and I am reassured what will happen will be. I often tell my new friends about Fort Gaines and I can tell from their facial expressions with their fancy degrees, million dollar homes that they are clueless about my journey here. I proudly boast my hometown name with crickets left in the room and the mapquest person who says o Albany Georgia. I know exactly where you are. When clearly you dont because you are almost 45 minutes off the mark. I just smile and say maybe one day you can come home with me.

THE LAKE ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My Strawbabies who are from Fort Gaines see this a hundreds times a day and are not excited about the Lake.


 But I am here to tell you our town is a hidden Jewel tucked away in Georgia and to be from there is valuable in itself.

Eat Breakfast Boys

Let’s do brunch in CP. CP as in College Park, Georgia.
Place: Breakfast Boys
City: College Park, Georgia (Atlanta Metropolitan Area)
Purpose: BRUNCH
How many Stars?⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Listen Strawbabies everything was everything. But the catch to enjoy the total experience and miss the total excitement of something sooo good is to go during the less popular Brunch days. The weekdays. The times posted on the website is 8am to 3 pm.

The menu is down below๐Ÿ Ÿ 

The drinks were amazing as well. 

The parking can be challenging and please please don’t park at the next door Subway lets just say BOOT ๐Ÿ‘ข and not the kind you wear. The kind your car would. 
The wait times can be frantic as well on the days we previously talked about but after these little kinks.

 My experience was worth every one of them.

A smart move would also be to just make a reservation. 

The staff is amazing, the drinks are EPIC  I could do 2 or 3 or 4 maybe more.
 I think this is a 10 of 10 I definitely RECOMMEND. 

You will not be disappointed and let’s just say we can absolutely, definitely do Brunch at Breakfast Boys. We are definitely brunching in 4th quarter 2022 and 2023.
