Unraveling The Year Ahead


Today is the first day of the new year. Honestly, I feel like this….


My New Years Night

My last day of the New Year was great and I rung it in right here in Harlem. This was my first New Years keeping it local and it was a nice and safe experience. Honestly, being able to get home in 5 minutes was awesome. Read more about my night and reflections on 2014.

My 1st Stop: Dinner



My night started at dinner at Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant-268 West 135th Street.

My 2nd Stop: The Party 


My second stop was at Red Rooster (310 Lenox Ave.) to the Ginny’s Supper Club downstairs.

Unraveling the year ahead 2015

My 2014 was very interesting to say the least. I accomplished goals, and learned more about myself.

My 2014 pivotal events:

  • Got my Master’s degree in Public Administration
  • Lived in Miami for nine months
  • Completed a half marathon
  • Ended a serious relationship,
  • Started this blog
  • Took my first solo trip to Jamaica

Unraveling 2015 

For the past two weeks, I’ve been working on Susannah Conway’s New Year workbook. That helps you to reflect on 2014 and prepare for 2015. Uniquely, her workbook helps you come up with a word to be your guiding light for the coming year. My guiding word for 2015 is discovery. I want to use this year to discover more about myself, relationships, my career and new opportunities and uses for my blog and more.

It’s still the beginning of the year so it’s not too late to do the workbook and come up with a word that will help guide you this year.

Coming Soon for Harlem and Beyond in 2015

As I continue to reflect on my year, I will continue to outline my goals and use my guiding word for the blog. If you been following us this year, I would like to thank you. We have more in store for you for 2015 like:

  • More Artist of the week
  • Style and people profiles
  • Harlem Hole in the wall restaurant reviews
  • Guest writers

I hope you had a great last day of the year yesterday. Let’s make magic in 2015. Happy New Year!
