Happy Mon(Daé) 017

We all know why there’s no such thing as a Monday Funday trend because Mondays are hard! Life is all about perspective and Monday is the start of a new week with new opportunities. I’m not saying Monday is the new Friday by any means but they don’t have to be the enemy. 412 Fresh…

Happy Mon(Daé) 016

October is finally here and that means Halloween is coming! Although I prefer warm weather, Halloween makes fall worth it.  Last year I was on a cruise in the middle of the ocean, this year won’t be as big but I’ll definitely be in costume enjoying Pittsburgh with great friends. 🙂 I’m Rockin’ Previously I…

Style and Glam Pittsburgh: Glam Guaranteed

Pittsburgh native and founder of Style and Glam Pittsburgh, Jamyce Patterson can whip together a fashion show in her sleep. But it’s not the glamorous events that intrigued me. It’s the message behind the runway affairs that got my attention. Fashion shows come a dime a dozen now a days but you won’t find many…

Happy Mon(Daé) 015

A new week means a new chapter and new opportunities for successes and failures. I may be a little exhausted but that never stops me as I run on optimism and caffeine. Fierce the Runway was fabulous last night and I can’t wait to get founder Jaymce Patterson’s entire story. Until then cheers to the…

412 Fresh: 4 Events in the 412

Sometimes it seems like there are a million things to do in Pittsburgh or nothing at all. There is no in between. With the weekend on the horizon and a Superior Motors reservation tomorrow I’m excited to attempt to check out some of the coolest events in town. Here are four events that need to…

Happy Mon(Daé) 014

Happy Mon(Daè)! I can’t believe we’re more than halfway finished with 2017! It feels like we’ve been in the twilight zone or something but life goes on. I recently took a weekend getaway and it left me really motivated and refreshed. I’ve been doing my freelance graphic designing and picked up another freelance writing client….

Happy Mon(Daè) 013

To say I’ve been embracing my  inner free spirit would be the understatement of the century as I’ve always been one to follow wherever my soul takes me. My mom is super encouraging as she’s always telling me that the worst thing that can happen is you get a no and as Jojo says best, I’ve heard…

412 Fresh: Wigle Whiskey Sets up Shop Downtown

When I think of whiskey I think of an old fashioned and old men. That was before attending Wigle Whiskey’s tap room opening at the Omni William Penn Hotel. The opening had live music, whiskey samplings, a build your own old fashioned bar, hors d’oeuvres, and this pistachio chocolate bark that I could’ve devoured by…

& Happy Mon(Daè) 012

Happy Monday and first day of Spring. It’s crazy we had spring in February and winter in March. Winter is definitely not leaving like a lamb. Next month’s shenanigans include me buying my Cedar Point Season Pass and a 90’s Bar Crawl (The 90’s were all that & after last year’s shenanigans my tickets are…

& Happy Mon(Daè) 004

Hola peeps! Life has been cray! I write more than I could ever type. One day I’ll give up handwriting for just purely writing novels on my phone (Don’t count on it though.) Good news is I edited an entire book yesterday, the bad news is it wasn’t mine! But tis is life I finally…

& Pittsburgh’s Women ‘n Wine LadiesFest

Around the same time last year I found myself in the same space with one of my best friends sampling wine from local wineries in Pennsylvania. This year’s Women ‘n Wine LadiesFest was an upgrade from last year’s. That’s not saying much because the event was pretty disorganized last year but it wasn’t as crowded….

It Truly is a Happy Mon(Daè)

Happy Monday! With Thanksgiving around the corner, I’m in the business of counting my blessings. I’m learning that sometimes I may take things for granted and the things about life that frustrate me, may be someone else’s fairy tale. My weekend started out great because a lot of people may not know this but besides…
