August Photo Wrap-Up 2015

Hey y’all! That time of the month has finally arrived. Here are some photos from the other randomness of the month of August. Enjoy!

Earlier in the month, David and I had an opportunity to try a new sushi spot. If you follow me on Instagram than you know that I am a loyal customer of Sushi Train here in Tulsa. However I think it’s always good to try and help new businesses. We ate at Sushi House on 71st & Lewis. It was pretty tasty but when it comes to ramen I have to say that Sushi Train reigns supreme. But I must say that Sushi House is worth a try.

My mom, David and I went to the 1st Tulsa Culture Festival at the Glenpool Convention Center in Gelnpool, OK. It was fun and interesting. We heard good music and spoke with local vendors. The highlight for us was the body paint.

Tulsa has the pleasure of having two inexpensive movie theaters (AKA $1 Movies). One of them was recently purchased and re-furbished. The Village Movies 8 is located on 71st & Memorial next to Vintage Stock. David and I love going to the movies so this is always a treat for us, especially when we can be entertained and save some money. We watched San Andres and it was a fun movie.

If you know me then you know that I am a creature of habit. However, I do like to break away from the ordinary and try new things. I tried a new hairstyle using Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter Whip Curl Creme. I liked the style and was able to make it last for a few days.

Tried out a new hairstyle...I liked it

Culture & Body Art – Tulsa Culture Festival 2015

Hey y’all! I know it has been awhile since my last post, but I assure you that I haven’t forgotten about my blog.

This past weekend my mom, David and I went to the 1st Tulsa Culture Festival in Glenpool, OK which was put together by Lamorell Entertainment LLC..The event was held at the Glenpool Convention Center from Friday evening to Saturday evening. Since it was the first time for this event I didn’t expect for the attendance to be too high. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the turn out. There were vendors available offering everything from tribal print clothing to homemade body essentials like soaps and body lotions. For us the musical performances and the body paint were definitely the highlights of the event. We only stayed for around 4 hours but we were not disappointed. If you happened to miss it this year make sure to look out for it next year.

Poppin’ Bottles at Pops in Arcadia, OK

This past Sunday me and the Feyonce’ (yes I am aware of my inaccurate spelling lol) decided to visit a Route 66 landmark and treasure, Pops, in Arcadia,Oklahoma. Pops is a cool rest stop located on Highway 66 (of course, lol) and is open 7 days a week. I first heard of Pops last year (I know, I know…and I call myself an Okie). My chance to visit finally came on Sunday and it was worth the trip. Arcadia is a small town with very few interesting things to see, however Pops helps make up for whatever that small town lacks. It’s not a big restaurant/gas station. However, because of the floor to ceiling windows it feels spacious enough. We were seated quickly and the staff was very attentive. The food was good. David (the Feyonce’ mentioned ealier) really enjoyed the “Arcadia Burger” which had additions of bacon and blue cheese. Of course we couldn’t stop at Pops and not look over the large selection of pop (or soda depending on where you’re from). There were so many selections from seven different flavors of lemon pop to interesting flavors like “Pimple Juice”…yes you read that correctly. The options can seem endless. Words alone cannot express how cool this experience was so….you can find the video of this fun time below. Thanks so much for reading. You can find more information about Pops here.
