So, remember I talked about a new online network launching in just a short bit which I’ve been lucky enough to a part of by hosting my own food/travel web series? If not, check out the teaser post. In mid-June, I had 5 days of intense filming, covering 10 looks. Not too bad in the fashion sense, other than it being 100+ degrees and some icky humidity (the one thing that makes D.C. so unattractive) which had me batty and wanting to dive into the nearest hotel pool! Imagine the makeup touch-ups. No fun at all. By the end of my days, I felt like a 4-layer cake!
My 2nd day was colorful and busy visiting food trucks in D.C. I didn’t put too much thought into what I was going to wear. I mostly wanted to be comfortable and cool since I’d be outside all day long. I also knew there’d be a lot of running around, chasing down these social media-driven businesses handing out delicious eats. And, potentially sipping iced coffee as I waited for real customer lines to taper enough for me to jump in to do my work.
You know my intention was to wear heels, no matter the situation! But, I seriously needed some ease in maneuvering around the city! It was a sacrifice, but I ended up with flats. It all worked out. Something ironic I just noticed, which may be of absolute nothingness. But, the shoes I wore happened to be ones I bought in Hawai’i almost two years ago when my brother got married. The lone time I’ve been and have shopped there. One of 4 pairs of shoes I stuck in my bag during that awesome vacay. And, it just so happens that the one truck I really had a good time filming with is the single Hawaiin food truck in the entire city.
I’m telling you! When the stars align, they just do!
Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.
