Birthday Trip Photo Diary Pt 2: New Orleans • 05/02-05/10

It should come as no surprise that my favorite part of my birthday trip was visiting New Orleans. This was my first time there which was a little intimidating, but...it made turning 24 all the more special.

I'm a huge lover of food and more importantly getting to try new food--who isn't? So I made a point of bookmarking and consuming some standout spots. Lunch at Lil Dizzy's Cafe in historic Tremé, beignets at Café Du Monde, shrimp po'boys! Plus all the wild activity and tourist traps I and my best friend Nailah could get ourselves into.

(Like for example...the swamp tour? Home of maaany alligators? Yeah. Did that.)

Birthday Trip Photo Diary Pt 1: Atlanta • 05/02-05/10

Happy belated birthday to me!
This year I wanted to do something special to me--travel. It's been a minute since I've had an extended travel vacation so I was ready-ready. I decided to make this a double trip: first Atlanta then New Orleans. I've been to Atlanta quite a few times now; I actually spent my 21st birthday there in 2016, too. So I was excited to go back and especially to attend the Shaky Knees Festival. Some of my favorite bands, from The Dandy Warhols to Tears For Fears to Tame Impala, played over a three day span in Atlanta's Central Park. Tame Impala closed on the final night of the festival, with mesmerizing visuals and true-to-recording sound quality.

Nothing beat getting to see some of my favorite musicians, visiting family, and of course that warm weather.

You're Invited 🙋🏾‍♀️ (feat 15% off!)

This post is sponsored by Basic Invite.

When I was approached by Basic Invite, I was excited but admittedly, a little intimidated! They present such a broad spectrum of invitation and stationery options -- even offering websites for your events like birthdays and weddings. They also offer almost unlimited colors to customize your invitations, with over 180 different color options for each element of the design, so your design is truly your own.

Something I really appreciated too, was the fact that Basic Invite saves you the headache of ordering invitations sight mostly unseen, with custom samples. Not all sites offer the ability to get a sample of your final product before it's sent out as the "final product", but in my opinion it offers peace of mind and of course, room for last minute changes, which are super important.

These are some of my favorite samples; the variety in colors, textures, and templates alone is already inspiring my next order of invitations. (Seriously, I *need* that gold foil lettering). And with graduation season coming up, Basic Invite has you more than covered with seemingly endless graduation party invitations templates, includinhighschool graduation invitations and photo graduation invitations.

I also loved that aside from amazing invitation options, like this adorable Friendsgiving invitation idea, Basic Invite offers killer stationery, like these clear business cards. I've been racking my brain for a new business card design and these clear business cards stood out to me immediately! 🌿

Don't miss out! Basic Invite is offering 15% off right now with coupon code: 15FF51
