Hey Prizms! Life's been a whirlwind and I have a few new projects underway, including a new EP I'm working on! More on that later... Yes, your girl is a singer-songwriter too (among some of the other dope shit I do) and I've been putting pen to paper and cranking out new music daily. So, that's why I've been under the radar but I promise I have been doing plenty of things to keep you guys interested and bring you great content.
Speaking of which, in one of the networking events that I was a part of called Black Girls Do here in DC back in March, I represented Prizmatik and spoke to about 25 young Black women who are aspiring/current entrepreneurs about how to get their dreams off the ground. It was so much fun and I met so many dope and inspiring young Black women and got an opportunity to talk to them about my blog and my future plans for it as a brand in itself. A few of them I will feature on the blog soon with their businesses so you guys can follow and support.
At that event, I met a young Queen with locs, flip-up shades, and a wide brimmed hat named Oxytosin (yes, like the medicine and I swear that's how she introduced herself to me!). I was introduced to her through one of the co-hosts of the event, J. Simms, because I had expressed interest in possibly starting a podcast of my own. Now, I listen to podcasts all day (and I will do a post of my favorite podcasts soon) but I've never actually been on one before in order to know if this was something I really wanted to do. So J introduced me to Tosin and we got to talking about podcasts and my blog and she actually went on to invite me on her show as a guest! I thought that was a great idea and I was super honored for her to even bring that up.
So...fast forward (and then rewind) to a few weeks ago on May 11th, I was featured as a guest on her podcast called Drinks and Conversations. Now, of course I knew there would be liquor present (hence the name) but I wasn't sure exactly HOW much. Needless to say, I drank and conversed with Tosin and her co-host Intropixs about a wide range of topics including how I got my start with my blog and my music, my thoughts on the #BowWowChallenge, and Phaedra's lying ass.
Also, Oxytosin and Intropixs host seasonal mixers and day parties in the DC area and they have one coming up on June 10th (THIS SATURDAY) in Adams Morgan at Johnny Pistolas. I will be in attendance ready to have some drinks and conversation with everyone there and you should come out too! Come out and meet the hosts of Drinks and Conversations and get your summer started off right in DC!
