Nashville Boutique//Envy Boutique

This edition of Small Business Saturday I highlight the ladies of Envy Boutique. They have a great selection, city-wide pickup, and it’s easy to spend money with ladies with whom you can relate. You couldn’t ask for a better partnership. I get a lot more “no responses” than collaborations, so thanks again for taking a chance on me! Head over to to see the different looks and be inspired by these emerging entrepreneurs!

Something’s Rotten in Nashville (Literally)

A few months ago I was approved to serve on the media team for the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC). This means I’m provided with access to the shows, plays, and events coming to Nashville with the opportunity to preview them and share my experience with my readers. I might even get to interview an actor or two (in the future).

My first Broadway musical experience with Something Rotten was hilarious, bright, and high energy.  I loved it.  I found myself cheering the progagonist on, falling in love with the celebrity of Shakespeare, and following along with the popular (and funny spin) of popular Shakespeare quotes.

I’m glad my first Broadway play experience was Something Rotten.

Continue Reading selected for sponsored Membership to Nashville Chamber of Commerce

Just in time for Small Business Saturday, I’d like to announce that I selected for a year sponsored membership to the Nashville Chamber of Commerce!

I’m legit yall!  I’ve met quite a few of the wonderful ladies that work for the Chamber and I would like to thank the team for recommended my membership.  I can not wait to forge relationships with this connected organization!

But to be honest, for a long time I was unclear of the Chamber of Commerce’s role in the Nashville community (and other communities around the country).  It’s ok — if you didn’t know either.  Click the link and I’ll put you on game.

Nashville Tee-Shirt Designer//PPPL Clothing

I always knew I was different.  Not better.  Different.  I’m the coolest most confident socially awkward inappropriate person you’ll ever meet.  I never really fit in, and I honestly stopped trying.

I was introduced to the PPPL Clothing (Peculiar People Clothing)in my (ongoing) research of the new Nashville social (media) scene.    Peculiar is one of those words that stands out because it just isn’t use that often.  And, being raised in the Souther Church scene, my head echoed of the cadence of the pastor quoting this verse:

(Now I know there are so many iterations of the bible so the KING JAMES VERSION states this):

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light”

Imagine after ever comma was a deep inhale and a body rock in the rhythmic style mimicking the ancestors.

But that verse though!!  Now I’m not religious AT ALL….but baby I know that creator of mine, whatever it may be,  made me perfect, splendid and amazing….unlike anybody else, with something special inside me that purposefully contributes to this thing called life.

Now if you feel me, Go ahead and let that shout in your spirit out.  I’ll wait.

Being a brand ambassador I get to choose my partners and I love wearing a tee that represents who I am, walking in my purpose, peculiar and all because guess what — I’m NOT like anybody else…..and neither are you.


Read on for wise words from PPPL Clothing Owner and Designer Tamasa Holden.

P.S.  Tamasa, I’m so proud of you sis.  This entrepreneur thing can be so tough, but you got this! New mercies and opportunities EVERY DAY.

Thank you for being so supportive and partnering with

In preparation for this Sunday’s Urban Soul Cafe #goodvibesonly ,I made a deal with Carlos….PLEASE GET ME AN INTERVIEW!  Shout out to Carlos Hale for doing what he said he would do and getting me connected with an artist for which I’m a fan — Nashville meet Emmy and Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, producer Artist Rudy Currence.  He’s performing with this Sunday’s USCAFE gospel lineup, but don’t put him in ANY genre box.

I was introduced to him via his R&B sound on the album Digital Analog (my favorite song is UFO) and he’s not married to either gospel or r&b but in making sure his purpose is served, not matter the vehicle of musical expression and artistry.  I’m not going to lie yall, this interview was more of a perk for me than a true interview.  Read on for my chat with Rudy Currence.

Tennessee Steeplechase and Working the Social Media Team

I had the esteemed honor to serve as the Day of Event Social Media for Iroquois Steeplechase 2017.  I manned the Facebook Page Iroquois Steeplechase and you can check out my coverage of the day of the event here.

Saturday, May 13, 2017, was the 76th annual Iroquois Steeplechase, also known as the Tennessee Derby LOL

Truthfully, I’ve never attended Steeplechase so I did some research to understand more about the event I was attending (and to ensure its historical background isnt….sketchy😎).   Here’s what I learned:
