My birthday is in a couple weeks and I'm going to celebrate by spending a couple of days in a city that I have dreamed of visiting FOREVER... New Orleans.
Yes. I'm so excited...I have never been but, all my favorite movies are filmed there...I have romanticized about this city forever...the colors, the sounds, the flavors, the people the art...I just feel like it's city for me. So today, I pulled together a post all about my romanticized notion of what I think New Orleans is all about...I'll let you know how correct I am or not when I return...
Dream bathroom...I'm staying at a Bed & Breakfast in the Garden District...and a bathroom like this would be perfect.
Pantone color for 2014...Radiant Orchid or purple if your nasty...
I imagine homes furniture with old furniture in modern ways...kinda like my place.
sidebar...I have seen and passed up on this coffee table twice in the thrift store...sigh. Next time I see it, I may have to get it...
Can't wait to install my birthday hair...Big hair...don't care.
I imagine a fly New Orleans sister living like this...more of that Radiant Orchid done right...sigh. Makes me wanna clean up...for real.
I imagine, men who look like gentlemen...New Orleans Style Blogger and photographer L. Kasimu Harris

I can't wait to see the art in New Orleans...I hope it's everywhere...
I will wear a skirt everyday on my trip...I'm heading to the fabric store...if it ever stops raining in NYC.
and food...Sigh. I can't wait. I'm not the biggest seafood fan...I know, New Orleans and not a seafood fan...why bother? Well, I will be eating things like frog legs...YUM! My dad was from St. Louis by way of Mississippi and he always ate strange food when I was a kid...strange by good. I'm an Aquarius baby, nothing scares me...the stranger the better.
You can make them at home... recipe here .
