May the world be your playground

It’s been a minute since my last post and there have been a lot of swirling, moving parts in my life. My recent travels have taken me to the sunshine state where I had a lot of time to relax and unwind.

I enjoyed some time in Miami, where I hung out in the Gables, Kendall, Fort Lauderdale and Davie. Although I did more resting than partying, I enjoyed my time away from the hustle and bustle. Of course the most rewarding part of the trip was spending time with my girls: Cha, Fi and Tyra.

A month later, I journeyed to Tampa where I for some quality time with the fam. Unfortunately, our family had experienced three deaths, two months apart over the course of six months. So, I was praying that no one else would pass before I made it to Tampa. On the Friday night of my trip, my cousins and I enjoyed a night out in Ybor City. Our first stop was a local restaurant and bar to see one of Tampa’s finest drag shows at Hamburger Mary’s restaurant ( The show lasts for about 45 minutes, but it is quite entertaining and the performers are pure high energy. I highly recommend this show to anyone visiting Ybor City and looking for a great time. After the show, we partied the rest of the night away at Gaspar’s Grotto ( where we swayed to the grooving beats while enjoying the beautiful Tampa weather. We partied so hard that it was 2:30a.m. when we finally departed.

Saturday night was spent at Jackson’s Bistro ( in Tampa’s Harbour Island. We arrived around 11p.m. and the party was KRAZY. The first couple of minutes was spent in the latin room listening to salsa, reggaeton, merengue, and cha cha. A little later we made our way to the hip hop room where we dropped it low, low, low, low, low, low low. I definitely got my cardio workout that night.

After recovering from the activities of the past two days, my cousins and I spent Sunday having lunch at Bahama Breeze in Clearwater, Fl. This was the perfect way to end a weekend of non-stop fun with my family. The sun was shining, the music was relaxing and love was in the air. This was one of the best visits I’ve had in a very long time.

As I look forward to my milestone birthday coming up, I am looking forward to many, many more days of sun, fun and relaxation.
