Living My Best Life Tour: Rascal Flatts 2019

Hey Guys!

I hope that everyone is doing amazing! As you know, I'm starting a new series on my blog called the "Living My Best Life Tour" and it chronicles all of my fun endeavors on my journey to healthiness and happiness. This is the third installment in that series, discussing my experience seeing my FAVORITE country band in concert, Rascal Flatts, with my play sister Ariel.

The key factors that attract me to Rascal Flatts are their diversified songs, strong vocals and their deep lyrics. They gave me all of that and more in their performance! I felt like I was in another world at the beautiful Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park. I'm not gonna lie. Tears definitely fell when they sang long-time favorites like "Bless the Broken Road," and "What Hurts The Most." I was already fairly emotional due to being in the process of healing from falling in love with a very toxic man, but to hear those songs be sang with such passion and power, it felt like Rascal Flatts was talking directly to me. Clearly, I wasn't the only one who felt this way because the entire crowd was swaying and waving their lights around in unison. 

On a different note, I felt very inspired and encouraged when they sang songs like "I Like The Sound of That," "Life Is A Highway" and "My Wish." To hear those positive messages during such a hard time was soul-soothing and I think that everyone in attendance could relate.

For the first time, I went to a concert and fell in love with the opening acts. This has never happened before. The opening acts were Billy Currington and Jimmie Allen. They held it down for us while we waited for Rascal Flatts to appear! I must say that "Best Shot" by Jimmie Allen and Billy Currington's "We Are" and "It Don't Hurt Like It Used To" are now forever in my playlists. They did an amazing job.

Thank you so much to Rascal Flatts! It's been at least 10 years in the making, but I finally got to enjoy you live.

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
