One Time, At Band Camp…

Standard

Well, I planned this blog post on Local Charlotte Doctor Kellye Hall out so meticulously.

And then did a complete 180 after doing some more research and talking with her.

Not only is this incredible Super Woman a Physician, she also excels at pretty much everything she does.

From the age of two, Kellye knew she wanted to be a doctor.

Like most of us at that age, we combine a bunch of dreams and strive to be them all.

Kellye made all of her childhood goals become a reality.

Growing up in Soul City, Noth Carolina, she was surrounded by inspiration. Along with dancing, she also was very involved in band.

After High School she enrolled in North Carolina A&T and immediately set forth to become a part of their band.

“The next summer at band camp in 1998, we were all lining up to march to the practice field, and Dr. Kenneth Ruff, the assistant director at that time, came to the back of the band where the saxophone section was lined up, took my saxophone out of my hands, led me to the front of the band, put me in line with the three drum majors at the time and said, “Give my drum majors some competition.” I seriously didn’t have a clue on what was going on but it was official that day at band camp that I was the first female drum major.”

After seeing THIS VIDEO my blog went another direction.

Kellye Hall opened the first of many doors when she became the first Female Drum Major.

She continues to open doors for other females by mentoring them and inspiring everyone that crosses her path.

Doctor, Drum Major, Dancer… so much talent.

But wait, there’s more!

Add author to the mix!

A major advocate of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, she guides her mentees through the entrance of the HBCU that best suits their goals.

And she’s currently working on her next book.

Being a doctor on a good day isn’t easy. Being a doctor during a pandemic has got to be the one of the hardest things ever.

Saddened by how healthcare is being treated as a business by insurance companies, drug companies and large corporate hospitals systems, Kellye has decided to step back for awhile and focus on some of her other passions.

Going full circle, dance has become a major part of her life once again.

The NC Dance District, a Hop Hop Dance Studio now occupies her days.

Running a dance studio doesn’t feel like work to her.

Now since you’ve gotten the feel for Kellye then you will know this isn’t your typical dance studio.

It’s more of an anti studio in fact. They train professional dancers in a warm and nurturing environment.

It’s such a successful concept they plan to grow, building in cities all over the country.

They’ve even been featured in Essence On Line Magazine.

I always ask the subjects of my blogs to send me a picture of something that brings them joy. And I always find an immediate connection between my subjects and their pictures.

It was only fitting that she sent a picture of the Queen Bey herself. Beyoncé, another female force that’s paved the way for others.

When you see a door opened for a female in a male dominated area, you can be assured, Kellye Hall will be there holding it open for her.

Hue…Hue Got What I Need

Standard

If you don’t own at least five pair of black leggings you can’t possibly be human.

Yes, I have more than that. I have some from Target and Amazon but my all time favorites are from Hue.

I’ve been buying from Hue for years and I’m positive my first pair of leggings were Hue.

There’s Faux Leather black leggings.

There’s High Waisted leggings.

There’s cropped leggings which, because of my shortness look like regular leggings on me.

And there’s velvet legging for a nice holiday look.

What’s your favorite legging? Are you also True to Hue?

A Cup Of Holiday Cheer

Standard

It’s that time of year again! The first Peppermint Mocha of the season is being consumed in festive cups all over the world.

Why do these cups make the drinks taste ‘merrier’?

I think it’s a mental thing with us. Something about the cups fill us with cheer.

We all remember a few years back when Starbucks made the big change from Christmas cups to Holiday cups and almost made the world implode.

I recognize that not everyone celebrates Christmas but they do celebrate holidays in the Winter.

McDonald’s and Dunkin have joined in the holiday cheer with their festive cups as well.

There’s just something about these cups that make us happier.

‘Take a cup o’ kindness yet, For days of auld lang syne’

Out Ramen Around

Standard

Yes I’m the last of the Charlotte Foodies to visit Silverlake Ramen in the South End.

So when Megan of Megan Miller Marketing invited me to the Fall Menu Preview I was there!

Now, being a vegetarian I’m often limited in what I can eat. Don’t get me wrong, I be eating!!! However I have a bit of FOMO when it comes to some dishes.

One of these dishes is the Bao Buns. Today I finally got to experience one.

Silverlake offers a vegetarian version with the Impossible Bun! Panko fried Impossible plant meat, shredded cabbage and katsu sauce! I could eat a dozen of these they are so delish!!!

I had The Ramen Vegetarian. Vegetable broth with miso base, bean sprouts, corn, mushroom, tofu, broccolini, baby greens, kale, red cabbage and avocado.

Hubby had The Classic Ramen. Choice of protein: pork, chicken, or tofu. Creamy pork broth, bean sprouts, spinach, green onion, seaweed, black garlic oil and egg.

He actually liked the broth in my veggie bowl better! And he’s a carnivore! it was full of flavor. And flavor is very important to vegetarians!

Now, being married to a Singaporean, I’ve wanted to try a Singapore Sling for ages but never found a place that serves them.

Until today! Yes I finally got my Sling!!!

If I ever ask you to Send Nudes then you better send me Noods from Silverlake Ramen!
