Posts of the Week

If you haven't had a chance to read my two posts this week, you can check them out here! On Monday, I discussed my mental health journey and how I practice yoga as a way to take care of myself (How I've Dealt with Anxiety/Depression Part I).  On Wednesday, I gave a tour and review of my new closet from IKEA ( Closet Tour & Review of IKEA Pax System).

TV/Movies

 

Dear White People - Based on the 2014 movie of the same name, which was based on a concept trailer. Dear White People explores the lives of the black students at the fictional Ivy League University, Winchester University, and how they deal with social injustice before and after a fraternity on campus hosts a blackface party. Each thirty minute episode of the satirical comedy-drama focuses on one of the show's main characters. The show is funny and very well written, and obviously is still very relevant. The entire first season can be found on Netflix

Detroit

 

On Wednesday Gabe and I had our wedding menu tasting at the Detroit Institute of Arts! We were blown away with how delicious the food is and we're seriously so excited that the day is in less than five months!

 
 

The photos seriously don't do the food justice! It was exquisite! We also met with the head chef who has been with the DIA for 40 years! 

 
 
 
 

Wednesday was also my lovely best friend, and maid of honor, Laila's birthday! We celebrated with drinks and sushi at Inyo in Ferndale!

 
 

What do you have planned for this weekend? On Saturday I'm heading to Spring in Corktown, which one of my favorite spots, Eldorado General Store, is participating. Then on Sunday, I am checking out Eastern Market Flower Day 2017!

 
 

I'd love to hear your weekend plans! You can comment below or find me on FacebookInstagram or email. I hope you have a fantastic weekend! 

 

Thank you so much for visiting!
