5.19.2014 ~ And That’s All She Wrote…Goodbye, Kansas City, I Adore You…

When I decided to have a going away party, little did I know that I would end up putting together one of the most amazing groups of people all representing very different moments in my life here in Kansas City.  I also had no clue that I would end up taking a literal tour of some of my favorite KC bars and hot spots, including Sol Cantina, The Cashew, The Well, and Westport even for a final stop at Firefly.  I seemingly danced my way across the city, all the while kicking it up with some fabulous women in tow.

I have to say thank you so much to Chyanne, Gabby & the twins, Willie, Jim, Kendra, Kim and Dominique for the great conversation, laughs, and general merriment!  You guys made my last visit to Sol Cantina a memorable one!

I felt so fabulous thanks to the uber-talented Luis and Brayan of LB Styling & LB Glam who totally hooked up my hair and makeup for the night’s festivities.  Even though you guys couldn’t make it to the party, I’m so glad I got to spend those fun three hours with you while you turned me into a work of art.  The two of you are extremely talented, and I am blessed to have gotten to know you so well during my time here in Kansas City.  I KNOW that I’m going to be seeing you and your work in California very soon!  And P.S. I’m going to do my best to make sure that #thekhloeeffect becomes a thing!  I love it!

lbstylingI’ve talked so much the last few weeks about the things that I will miss, the people that I love and am saying goodbye to.  Truth is, while I put on my smiling face and I laugh and joke, and crush on all the spectacular people that have made my life in Kansas City so wonderful, I am heartbroken.  How could I not be?  Goodbyes are hard.  But what I keep trying to remember is this little poem, “Goodbyes are not forever.  Goodbyes are not the end.  They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again.”

So now it’s time to say goodbye to Curvy in Kansas City.  But this is not the end.  You and I ARE going to meet again.  While this may the final post for Curvy in KC, you have not seen the last of me at all.  What I am most grateful for when I think about Curvy in Kansas City, and when I think about all my fans, is that I’ve been so encouraged to grow and do more.  I want to go above and beyond anything I dreamed possible when I started this little blog that could.

So, my loves, be sure to keep tabs with me on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts (where you can also catch more photos from the Curvy in Kansas City going away party).  You will get first-hand info there about what’s coming in the next few months.  I’ll still be posting OOTDs, Want It Wednesdays, and all varieties of fun and mayhem to these accounts while changes to the blog are made!

5.6.2014 ~ OUTFIT POST ~ Going Out With A Bang…Or Was That A Shot of Tequila?

I hadn’t planned on making another trip to St. Louis prior to the road trip to California in a couple of weeks, but then something funny happened.  My bestie found this AWESOME deal on Voice Daily Deals for the Cherokee Street Cinco de Mayo Festival in St. Louis!

IMG_0513First, if you’ve never experienced Cherokee Street on Cinco de Mayo, DO IT!  Start planning NOW!  Cherokee Street on its own is an amazing cultural experience any time of the year, and my love for the area just might be bolstered by the fact that one of my favorite St. Louis jewelry designers, Scarlett Garnet, calls it home.  When Cinco de Mayo rolls around, though, there’s just something that happens that really brings the street to life, and you’ll never know what you’re going to see or find.

Second, all I can say is $35 for all you can drink and eat, plus VIP access to private, non-porta-potty bathrooms and air conditioning…yeah, that’s a keeper.  So with my best friends in tow, Miss Jenna, Melissa, Zach, and Kevin, I headed out for what may have been the best way to say ta-ta for now to the great City of St. Louis!

IMG_0550It’s a weird feeling, but with the way things are going now I really do feel like this is the way things are meant to be.  All my plans seem to be falling into place, and all my goodbyes are joined by beautiful sunshine, laughter, and well-wishes.  While I will definitely miss so much of what I’m leaving behind, I take some cheer in that all my final memories of the places I’ve held dear will be so wonderful and so joyful!
