Motivational Moore: Chill Out Kings & Queens!

Written by

Baltimore, Maryland: Let’s face it, we live in a society where we are constantly on the go! From juggling a career, family, personal life I can go on! It’s weird but the world has us thinking if we are not grinding 24/7 we are not making moves! That’s crap!!! Taking time to relax is really important to maintain positive mental health. Pray, meditate, go for a walk, exercise, dance, chill out!

Often times we are so consumed by always being on the go that we forget to give thanks for the simple things in life!

 

So check this out! It was a beautiful day in Baltimore recently. The weather was poppin and the sun was glowing!  During my lunch break, I decided to stroll the streets of Hampden to admire God’s beauty! A warm winter day is a blessing! During my peaceful walk, I stumbled across this beautiful graffiti mural and met Harry Bosk, a local Baltimore photographer! Our energy instantly clicked and he snapped these wonderful photos. I absolutely love these pictures! It’s amazing what happens when you just take time out every day to relax and de-stress!

Shout out to Hudu Clothing for the dope sweater! 

Hey Kings and Queens!

I recently had the pleasure of hosting Roaring Pearls and Ties, a luxury Valentine’s Day Experience at Hotel Monaco in Washington DC! This event was everything! Curated by International Event Planner Extraordinaire FTK Konnect, guests enjoyed a night of elegance, featuring live entertainment, interactive games, charity auction and a multi-course dinner! From cocktail to dessert, each course was perfection! And to top it all off, the décor was out of this world!

I had so much fun hosting alongside Olumide Ayoola! The man is hilarios!

Now let’s talk style! My followers are still raving over my stunning red dress by Baltimore Designer Michele Blanchard owner of MB Design Gallery! She specializes in custom made couture designs and accessories! I gave some serious leg action and loved every minute of it! Michele Blanchard knows how to effortlessly combine sex appeal and class!

Huge thanks to everyone who came out to Roaring Pearls and Ties! Check out some of the pics below and follow and FTK Konnect for her many upcoming events!

Washington, DC: Hey Kings and Queens! So I really enjoyed myself at Cocktails and Soul Sistas hosted by Femme Fatale DC; a ladies only networking party series! I host and speak at events all the time but I have to admit this event was different!

 

Held at Jos. A. Magnus& Co. Distillery, Femme Fatale DC curated an incredible live music and comedy experience! The evening featured performances from soulful singers, gifted rappers, powerful spoken word artists along with talented painters and designers! Guests were treated to complimentary cocktails while vibing out to super cool performances and mingling with D.C. influencers.

 

I had the pleasure of performing my new poem entitled Passion; inspired by my media journey and created to empower others to pursue their dreams! It was pretty awesome to perform my poem for their first time in front of a room of talented Queens!

I’m so inspired to take my creativity to next level and I can't wait to take you guys along for the ride! Huge thanks to Thanks Femme Fatale DC for having me! Your girl had a blast! Images byJadi Imani.
