I finally had an opportunity to take another sewing class! If you have been following my blog, you know I decorated a sewing space in my daughter’s room and took my first class last year. You can checkout my sewing room here. Unfortunately, I have not touched my sewing machine in months! So when my sister mentioned that she was taking a class called Sip and Sew with Stitched By Shay… I jumped at the opportunity!
The class was so fun and I am very proud of my beautiful African skirt! This was not an easy project but, we were all beginners so we struggled together, lol ! The snacks and mimosas made it a little easier and fun!
Shay was so patient and easy to work with. My sister and I had so much fun! Checkout this little video of the class and if you are interested in more information about her classes and business checkout her Facebook page here.
I love flowers! I think it started when I got to be the flower girl in my uncle’s wedding when I was about 6 years old. My family says that I barely wanted to drop the rose petals from my basket. I guess I did not want to let them go!Continue reading →
So our old barbecue grill finally gave out after 15 years of grilling! I loved that grill but, it was definitely time to get a new one. After looking around at different models, we decided to go with the Weber Spirit. We got it at Lowe’s with free assembly and delivery so we were happy campers! After the grill was delivered, I could not wait to fire it up and try this Shrimp Boil and Foil Packets recipe I saw on Facebook!Continue reading →
Let’s Flamingle! This was the theme for my flamingo themed pool party that I hosted to raise money for a great charity, promote my wine tasting business, and just have fun! Take a look at my video to see how to throw a fabulous flamingo pool party!
The votes are in and the tea tables were fabulous! The Los Angeles Community Church Annual Tea Table Competition was another huge success! This year, the event was held at the beautiful Knox Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles which was the perfect setting for this amazing event. The ladies came dressed and ready for tea! The table hostesses did a wonderful job with creative table designs and yummy food! It was the perfect way to kick-off spring! Everyone was a winner in this competition because the event supported an amazing charity called Forgotten Children, Inc. Their mission is to rescue, restore, educate and bring hope to victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. The event was sponsored by The Cochran Firm and supported by various local vendors. The afternoon was filled with beautiful music, fellowship, sisterhood, and a moving message on the power of prayer! Please enjoy some of the amazing pictures of the tea tables from this extraordinary event!

I will be 50 years old this year! Whoo hoo! I am so blessed and thankful to God for all that he has done for me! As I get older, I find myself thinking more often about all the things that really count – family, friends, great life experiences, and hopefully an opportunity to make a difference. I have decided that the next phase in my life will be filled with doing more of what I love! So when I discovered the companyONEHOPE Wine and its mission to give 50% of its profits to causes like breast cancer awareness, supporting literacy for children, fighting childhood hunger, and so many more… I was sold! What could be better than gathering with family and friends, sipping delicious wine, and giving back to your favorite charity! That is why I am so passionate about my new business venture and so excited to launch Kery B. Events – wine tasting with a purpose!
I am expanding my brand through a fabulous partnership with viaONEHOPE wine to bring all of you amazing discounts and exclusive wine tasting events that give back to charity and support our community! I invite you to view the pictures from my launch party and learn more about this wonderful opportunity to mix, mingle, and make an impact! I also encourage you to subscribe to my blog (if you haven’t already) so that you can be invited to my next exclusive wine tasting event. Enjoy!
As a native of Los Angeles, California, I have had the opportunity to try some of the best desserts that LA has to offer! From Beverly Hills to the beach cities, there is no shortage of great places to eat and try different sweet treats! However, I have found that some of the best places to find a tasty treat are often not at fancy restaurants or the latest A-list hot spots. Some of LA’s Best desserts are right in your neighborhood or in places you may not expect! Here are a few of LA’s best sweet treats you may not know about!Continue reading →

As I watched Hidden Figures with my girlfriends last weekend, I was so proud to say that all three phenomenal women featured in the movie are members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.- the first Greek-lettered sorority founded by African-American women on the campus of Howard University on January 15, 1908. There is so much history that we don’t know about the contributions of Black women and Black people in general! As I watched the movie, I thought…why didn’t I know about their amazing contributions before?? It made me realize that I have to continue to educate myself about Black history because so much of it is “hidden”! I’m also glad that so many people went to see the movie opening weekend. It made over 20 million dollars in box office sales last week! If you have not seen it yet, I highly recommend it! You will laugh, cry, and learn so much! Continue reading →
