ATGC’s 2016 in Review
Hey Loves,

We made it! 2016 is coming to close and if you’re like me, you’re 100% looking forward to 2017. Now we all know that 2016 was rough on a very grand scale we lost a lot of amazing people; Prince, Muhammed Ali etc. We elected an orange guy as President and so much more. But to be honest with you guys my 2016 was really awesome and I couldn’t more grateful for every single blessing of this year. So this post is just to look back on some of my favorite highlights of my 2016!

Featured in People Style Watch twice
I’ll never get over the fact that twice this year I was able to go to a newsstand, pick up a magazine, and see myself on the pages. I had the blessing of being featured in People Style Watch in both the June and October issues. I was completely over the moon. I am so grateful to the PSW team for giving me this opportunity not once, but twice.



Traveling to Montana with Catherines
Montana was not a place on my bucket list, but when I tell you it was one the most amazing trips I’ve ever been on…It was fantastic. Thanks to the awesome people at Catherines, I got to experience 3 awesome days in mountians glamping! Ugh what more could a girl ask for. Check out my post about my trip to Montana, as well as the details on where we stayed (Collective Retreats)


My 1st Cruise with MSC Cruises
This was my 1st cruise ever and I have to say I had the time of my life. It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait for my next cruise. Whenever that will be. Check out all my travel vlogs from my cruise!


Saw Beyonce LIVE
Formation had to have been one of the most amazing live performances I’ve ever been to. I saw Bey live during her On The Run tour and I’ve seen Kanye live. But Formation live, is just unforgettable. To top is off, I saw it with 3 of my amazing friends. It was an experience that none of us will ever forget.

Shooting in Ashley Graham’s swim collection
It’s one thing to wear her bathing suits for the blog, but to shoot live next to her in all her glory is something completely different. Ashley is definitely that girl next door that is always a ball of fun.


Slaying on the beach in Aruba
You all know I love to travel. When me and my guy FINALLY were able to get away to Aruba for a couple days, I just knew that I need to get some amazing pics on the beach. Shout out to my guy for being the photographer and getting these pics! Get details on my skirt from Sofistafunk in my Sunkissed Post

This shot will forever be one of my favorites of us. This was totally his idea, and before shooting, I fought him tooth & nail to NOT do this. But I’m glad he talked me into it, because it’s an awesome picture.


Starting #IEmbodyMe
I will be bringing this back in 2017. #IEmbodyMe came to fruition early in 2016. I was tired of the basic conversation of confidence. I wanted to feature women who fully Embody who they are as women. Follow us on Instagram now @IEmbodyMe

I wore box braids on my locs
I have been wanting box braids on my locs for YEARS. And never really had a reason to get them. But when I was going on my cruise, I thought it would be the perfect time to finally get them done. Check out my youtube video on how I got them done.
