What I’m Listening To: January 2018

I’m back bitches. Here to give you a look into what I’ve been excessively overplaying this past month – oldies, newbies, goodies, etc. You can follow my playlists on Spotify here, otherwise, buckle up and let’s get started.

What I’m Looking Forward To In 2018

Now that I got my favorite music selections from last year out of the way, here is a list of things I’m looking forward to this year (and it’s already shaping out to be an exciting year to come)! Television Scandal & How To Get Away With Murder Crossover – how incredible is this? I’ve…

Artist Spotlight: Tinashe

Hey friends, I’m back – or more importantly, Tinashe is back! It’s been a long time coming for the good sis since she released “2 On (feat. SchoolBoy Q)” back in 2014 (and we’ll just forget about everything prior: like her time in the girl group “The Stunners,” or the three mixtapes she released after…

After VACorps noticed my visual storytelling skills on my own Instagram account during my time in Cape Town, I was approached to takeover the VACorps company Instagram to share my journeys within the city and my internship at Reach Digital. I got to speak with the lovely Athena who runs the account and encouraged me…

Adventures in Namibia

Y’all wanna talk about a bumpy ride lets talk about the time Ariel, Waverlee and I thought it’d be fun to take a weekend trip to Namibia. As with any trip or excursion we tried to plan, naturally we had the absolute worst luck with trying to plan this weekend vacation. But per usual, we…

Overnight at Aquila Private Game Reserve

In the middle of our nine week stay we thought: what a good idea it would be to escape the every day life of Obs and take a trip somewhere – maybe even spoil ourselves and stay in a nice hotel or Airbnb. We had heard of Aquila Private Game Reserve from others (Rihanna had…
