It’s My Blogiversary!


Living La Vida Diva turns four today!!!

Oh what a year it has been!

I kicked off 2019 by attending a party thrown by my Friend and Mentor Ryan Jor El. He made a life changing decision to cut off his trademark Locs and I was there to document the process.

Ryan was to appear in several more blogs this year. Only fitting since he’s the driving force behind my brand. Not to mention he does some pretty awesome things!

I was there for the second year in a row for his Black Father’s Rock event.

As well as the 360 After Work: These Men’s Are Talking…Business where I learned some valuable tips for success from Ryan and the rest of the panel.

He also had several mentions in my yearly Father’s Day Gift Guide.

I tagged along with him for the Barbershop Talk with Novant Health and the African American Male Walk Initiative and learned some key factors in preventing many health problems that are prevalent in African American Men.

I shared a sweet story about a gift my granddaughter gave me. It was more than just a bottle of perfume. It was a memory of a time when I was just a little Diva about her age.

I had a Pick 6 and won the Super Bowl! Lol but it how you might think! Apricot Lane and Frutta Bowls are two of my favorite places and they find their way into many of my blogs and Instagram posts.

I had the Humbling experience of meeting my favorite designer Humble Connor and sitting in on a photo shoot! She’s always has such a runway presence at Charlotte Seen Fashion Week.

Two more fascinating interviews for Charlotte Seen include Wearable Art designer Nelli Levental and this Diva Worthy Pink Poodle!!

And I got to be a part of Charlotte Seen as they hosted their 100th Show!!!!

Even though I’ve attended several shoots at his Studio I finally got ‘Nikon Don’ Harris to sit down for an interview. His story is one of hope and determination. And I’m a better person for having met him.

Another young man I finally got to interview was Robert ‘Reasons’ Brown. And got to attend one of his music events as well.

I’ve met and talked over the phone with several talented musicians and authors. With each one I felt an immediate connection.

Target has been the subject of a couple of blogs. I also do a Thursday Target Treasures each week on my Instagram. I love my Target!!!

And finally, my new weekly series. Style It Saturday With Michael Kors was so popular on my Instagram I decided to continue them and do a coordinating blog post each week!

Thank you everyone for being in my Blogosphere!!
