April 12, 2019 Shopping For Produce

Today, I needed some fruits and veggies to get me through the next few days and I decided to hit Paradise Food & Vegetable, a local Arabic market to see what I could find. In almost EVERY case, shopping at ethnic markets is a BIG when it comes to produce. A) The prices

I've been back from Los Angeles for 7 days now, yet the city remains on my mind. I can't shake it. I guess I'm infected with the idea of living in a progressive city where there are palm trees, hacienda style homes and plenty of opportunity for creative minds such as mine. I'm

Yesterday, I was pretty hype to hang with friends in Southwest Detroit to enjoy Cinco de Mayo. I planned on smashing Mexican fare all day and of course, margaritas. Well, none of this really happened the way that I planned or hoped. The area where the celebration took place wa

So I got ahold of a 2nd generation iPad last week after waiting nearly a month for it to be delivered. Not sure if I mentioned it here, but I was not feeling the idea of buying an iPad since it was 1st introduced in  spring of 2010 because it seemed like a big ass iPhone witho

Typically, a hour before the doors open for the audience of a runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, you can catch the models doing a practice walk somewhere between their hair and make up styling. About this time, photographers lucky enough to get early admittance will hav
