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

Don't see your skill listed but think you can contribute? Still please reach out!

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…

Gluten & Allergen Free Wellness Event

My whole life changed (for maybe the billionth time) on November 3, 2017.

I had watched my son graduate from his Army AIT training the day before and traveled back from SC only to wake up with my entire face so swollen it looked as though I could burst at any moment.. the pain was real. I had done some blood work at the docs a few weeks earlier and we had not gotten the results so my husband drove me straight to the doc that day to demand some answers. I was told a few tests needed to be redone but the one thing she knew for sure is no more gluten... I blogged about it here. Before you ask, no I have not found out if it's Celiac, Lupus or anything else, even though the doctor seemed concerned about Celiac. Insurance issues. Yay life...
The last year has been a huge journey. Figuring out that EVERY little thing matters. Cross-contamination is real (if you don't change your gloves I will have a reaction), almost everything has gluten in it from shampoo to sausage and you often f…

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 to be sure. …
