The Sway, Hive Tour and How to Get Involved

Just a little bit more about the #HiveTour here and fill you guys in and see what you think and who is down to share and support us on this quest.

Since I started with my Ktown brand my primary focus has been independent arts and entrepreneurs. There are so many amazing people I have met here in Jacksonville, FL with talent that deserves to be seen, heard and more. I have spent a lot of time hosting indie shows, vendor events and more hoping to help with their exposure all while building a name for myself. I blog here and there, go live from shows and love to just have fun with it all.

About 2 years ago my husband and I started dating and everyone fell in love with us as a couple and asked for us to do a joint project together. We are often invited out to various concerts, festivals and so much more so we came up with The Sway (meaning: The Kingdom) as an idea for covering events while we are out and about. Often times we will go live from events and of course post pics and videos as well. We want to do more though and we want to start right here in Jacksonville, FL, take it on the road and then back here to Duval where we want to open our own business (more on that in a later blog).

For now though let's discuss this show a little more and the tour. We'd like to grow The Sway into a monthly talk show, with various segments on life, art, entrepreneurship, mentoring and community outreach. We have various contributors from all over to bring you talent, techniques and more from bloggers, teachers, small business owners and various professionals across the country. We want to bring them on to highlight the talent we have across this beautiful and diverse country.

With no concrete time set in place (yet!) the next step would be to take it on the road. We are creating a business plan to buy an old school bus or RV and convert it into a mobile home/studio. This would take us on the scene to events, we can bring artists on-board for interviews, chefs to whip up some meals and become a moving mural created by artists everywhere as we head cross country to spotlight creative types, entrepreneurs and more across the states while still having contributors send in their updates as well.

We know you want to support indie, find out about different new projects and more so that's what we'll be here to do! You can be in Colorado supporting a Musician in Virginia or in Cali buying food from a Florida Chef, and in Maine hanging up art from a Texan. It's all about love, support and looking for ways to connect us humans through our passions. We want to be honeybees (there will always be references towards bees) dripping a little bit of sweet new things to you all on a regular basis and helping improve communities and connections all over.

We will be looking to feature/highlight in the following areas over the next few months:

Artists (All types-music, paint, photo, etc.)
Chefs (They make art too!)
Small Business Owners
Mentoring Program Directors & Mentors
Art Program Directors
Event Hosts/Bloggers/Personalities
Models & Actors

Gluten-Free on I-95

I love traveling.. road trips, flying and even by boat. I just love to go. I didn't travel a lot as a kid.. Until I was 10 the only states I'd been to were my home state of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and Washington DC. By the time I'd graduated I had added North Carolina and Kentucky. I live in Florida now but my first time here was in 2002 and at 38 years of age I have only added South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, New York (airport only) and Connecticut to the list as well as The Bahamas (Freeport) and Cuba. I still have a million places I want to go.. Now though it's all a bit trickier because of my allergies.. I have been diagnosed as allergic to gluten, cats, pine trees and a few other things. I seem to have reactions to other things and need to be tested for more in addition to other health issues I have that food can complicate. This makes traveling HARD. I have to be careful at every place I go.. eating at events is completely out of the qu

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage #VoxBox

*This is a sponsored blog from Garnier Nutrisse and Influenster as I received this product to test for free So recently I was selected to receive a new #VoxBox from Influenster of a beautiful light brown (#630 Toffee Nut) hair dye from Garnier Nutrisse. I have used this brand a few times in the past so I really had no worries with trying out this new one. I set up my phone and did my first "unboxing" video which was kinda fun and something I think I may do more of. Inside were: After mixing them as instructed I kept the dye on for the recommended time of 30 minutes in going from a dark blonde color to this light brown. I must admit I was a little worried the color would properly cover my head as I was applying; the bottle felt so light but I ended up with just a little more than enough and I still applied that to be sure. My hair as you can see is just at my neck length so I imagine if it was longer than shoulder length you'd be better off grabbing two boxes

Baecation at Sunrise Painting

Have you ever heard a song and just saw a visual in your mind as you listened? During the COVID 19 Pandemic I have found myself painting even more. Having created my whole life I'd never painted actual paintings on canvas. My medium has primarily been wood and glass, learning as I go with no real teachings from anyone other than hours and hours of playing with my Gramma's paints or watching my Mom draw. When painting my first canvas piece of a sunrise last year I immediately knew I needed to paint more on canvas. I grew up at a time where music videos were EVERYTHING. The effects, guest appearances and story lines mattered. When most songs from my teen years start playing I immediately see the video in my head and think back to what was happening in my life at that time and the impacts the music and more made on me. That's what art does. It comes in so many forms but it is always a part of the times. After painting that first canvas I was riding in the car one day and th
