We celebrated a national holiday in January! Brittany THE Brand was Tippin On 22 in Atlanta and and support North Carolina A&T at Honda Battle of the Bands. Somehow, I only got one picture with the birthday girl but we were still cute!
So let's dive right in!
I feel super official because my big-girl job allowed for me to go on an all expense paid trip to VEGAS....FOR A WEEK! I felt so legit haha Also, this trip fell perfectly in line with my birthday so the world tour continued after Atlanta.
This was an experience I will never forget. I essentially work for an international company as a designer and every year, the company sponsors a national convention for our consumer segment/lifestyle. This year, moving from an intern to a full time employee, I was fortunate enough to attend this trip. One would think I was living it up in the night life, but I was definitely working and perfecting my craft. More importantly, I ate incredible food. I mean incredible! I probably ate at Wolfgang Puck's three times, an amazing Italian restaurant, an Irish pub and some others. As great as the food was, I was ready to head to my next destination, LA, by day three. None the less, I had a good time, learned a lot more about my job, and experienced Las Vegas in a different light.
Check out the pictures to get a glimpse of the places I visited!
Please note: Mercury Retrograde was taking place and I was not happy. This was the worst one that I'd experienced to the point where social media wasn't letting me post after editing images four. different. times. My work laptop wasn't working on random days. It was just too much. Did anyone else experience a tough time with technology or moods during this period?
Next Up: Los Angeles
To start the world tour off right, I decided to go to Atlanta! I hadn't visited the city in a few years and figured that would be the best way to bring in 25! Of course I made my way to Lenox Square in Buckhead a couple of times and I finally tried Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen! I heard about the famous restaurant and finally had the chance to experience it for myself.
I started my meal with their specialty drink called The Swamp Thing and ordered the andouille sausage gumbo appetizer. For the main course, Pasta Mardi Gras (without mushrooms). This was one of the most amazing meals I've ever tasted! The waiter was perfect with his suggestions and he was originally from the city where I currently live. Such a small world. Next time, I think I will try the Shrimp Etoufee.
Later that night, my friends and I went to Amora. I wore an amazing dress from Sonyabees Boutique and matching booties from Aldo. Let me tell you I loved this "Happy Birthday" Crown because every one was buying me drinks. I think I'll be wearing one every now and again when I want special attention.
Unfortunately, I did not get my Saturday night outfit photographed but don't worry, I'm sure it will make another appearance soon. Overall, I had an amazing birthday trip with great people! I can't wait to see what else 25 has in store for me.
Up Next: Las Vegas
Welcome to the launch of The J Spot!
I wanted to make a web page for quite some time but didn't have the guts to do it. But, today at 5:47 a.m., I finally bossed up.
This will be a space of documentation for myself and resonance for all things current, fun, and experiential. I'm on the go all the time and seem to have selective memory unless I have something to jog my memory. Because, let's face it, if you didn't take a picture, did it really happen?
So click through the site to see where I go next, what my current favorite things are, and the occasional outfit of the day! Make sure to comment and follow me on all social platforms to see what happens in real-time.
