I had so many (too many??) amazing #cocktails this weekend! I think the Dover to Calais at the @vettedwell was one of my favorites, though. I have a serious weakness for #greenchartreuse ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š #cocktailhour #cocktailtime #dallas #drinklocal

We did date night in #DeepEllum this week because (I still can't believe) we're moving away! Black Swan Saloon KILLED the drinks during my bachelorette last year, and last night made me a believer in #bijou cocktails. Like I'd never actually had a GOOD one until last night! Bless. #dallas #cocktails #cocktailtime #cocktailhour

Omg I tried #soulcycle for the first time last night and I am SO SORE. But I can't stop thinking about it?? I might be obsessed?? Do any of y'all do #spinclass on a regular basis? I think I may have found my next great love.

Ok so I am pretty obsessed with my new #PokemonGO outfit, I'm not gonna lie to y'all โค๏ธ Imma need it in red though, because #VALOR. #pokemon

I just realized I haven't announced this on Instagram yet, though if you follow me anywhere else online, you know this already! I've been pretty uncharacteristically quiet on IG this past month, and this is why โค๏ธ Last week, I accepted an offer to join the Social Media team at The Pokรฉmon Company International ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ which means that this time next month, the husband, the dog and I will be moving our entire lives from Dallas to #Seattle! I've literally got like...three weeks to move, so I'm doing my best to do/see as much I can while getting my tiny family ready for a cross-country move โœˆ๏ธGET READY FOR ME, SEATTLE. I am SO excited! Pic related: it's my new boss. #gottacatchemall

Nope, definitely hasn't hit me. I'm just gonna be over here chilling in denial for HOWEVER LONG. #strongfemalecharacters

I don't think it's hit me yet that I have to leave these ladies ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

#TBT - chilling with @tha_camera_kid when he came to visit us before the honeymoon! My brotherrrrr โค๏ธ he's already so good at roasting CJ lmaoooooo #eastdallas #dallas

So for those of y'all who have been keeping up with this - CJ and I have been married for exactly three months as of today, which meant it was time to transfer the #whiskey we started aging on our wedding day from a barrel to a bottle. Look how pretty and golden it is! When we initially poured it in, it was two 750ml bottles of unaged corn whiskey, and when we transferred it over, we had just about a bottle's worth. That angel's share is no joke, omg. We're trying a tiny bit today because it couldn't all fit in the bottle, and holy shit, it is AMAZING. It tastes like vanilla, caramel and smoky oak โค๏ธI can't wait to have it for real on our one year anniversary! Shout out to @oakbarrelsltd for the custom aging barrel! #tinsleyeverafter

My three-year-old passion project, #28DaysOfBlackCosplay kicked off today, and it's been one HELL of a first day. I'm so proud watching people who discovered #blackcosplay during the first year in 2015 come back every year since with costumes that are better and better, and I absolutely LOVE seeing the community come together to celebrate this. My ultimate long term goal is for the hashtag to become as common as WCW or MCM, and to have it continue for years without much need for prodding or organizing from me at all. I want it to belong to the community. And it's getting there โค๏ธHere are our daily themes if you're a #cosplayer interested in participating!

HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS to my sweet friend @moco_latte โค๏ธ Here we are basking in our mutual #blackjoy at my bridal shower last summer. LOOK AT US. Isn't she perfect? She's perfect. Ugh. Jazmine, I'm so glad I've gotten to spend more time hanging out with you and getting to know you this past year! Your shrimp and grits are ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ as hell and I am constantly spreading the gospel of @juliapearlsouthern because of you! CJ and I love you and we can't wait to celebrate with you tonight โค๏ธ

So my #MCM is my husband, as usual. Even as a cartoon. @gdbee really captured the true essence of his ridiculous hair, haha! This is some of the art we had at our wedding โค๏ธ
