ChoGeishaville, LLC ~ My New Home❣️

So… 2012 was around the time that I was losing my two-bedroom condo and most everything else as a result of the Great Recession while starting a master’s degree… Ten years later, I did a thing, bounced back bigger, and today, closed on my new (but old) house… and became a LANDLORD while starting a doctorate!

Introducing Phase 1 of ChoGeishaville, LLC… the triplex edition— 8 bedrooms, 3 baths, 4 fireplaces… around 3,877 square feet! 🤗 The first pic with the lawn is from 2018, the second and third, from today. I planned to buy a quadplex/ four-family, but when I stumbled upon this historic Queen Anne Victorian home, built in 1895, with its corner tower, I had to make some sacrifices to snatch her. This beauty with double two-car garages (equals four car spaces plus driveway… no more alternate-side parking!) came on the market the same week that my arduous #NACA journey to qualification came to fruition… and mind you, I had been researching homes for MONTHS! This program not only paid for my down payment and closing costs but my attorney fees, too! I paid down out-of-pocket to get the lowest interest rate possible… as of today, 1.12 percent!🎊🤗🎉🥳 I’ll be back with pics of #MyCastle after her makeover including painting her sage green with brick red and black accents… getting some stained glass, a moat (kidding,) new fence, and changing the landscape to my liking (I don’t understand those afro bushes.🤔) Anyway, please reach out to this generous program that also helps people of all income brackets with rent, food, and getting jobs❣️

I voted!🇺🇸🤗🎉

Let me tell you how excited I was to discover that this mask and bow set was delivered to me, days earlier than expected, and only HOURS before I planned to vote! The surprise was far more sweet due to the fabulous packaging to go along with the lovely work of @immyhmillinery. I felt like I got an early holiday gift!🤗

I must also shout~out @joanieclothing who made my new favorite sweater/ t-shirt (so soft) and tipped me off about Immy’s accessories (the most comfortable mask I’ve worn thanks to what seems like nylon around the ears).

None of this would be possible if not for fictional character, Sean, on Coronation Street who was rocking this top on the show.

P.S. Nocturnal me decided to enjoy the wee hours of the morning after my late shift at work then, go to the polls at 6am. It worked out well as I was in and out of there in around 40 minutes.

When the Crazies Start Knocking at Your Door

This could be partially down to 2020 and #CoronaPalooza, but I’m thinking that I must be getting better with age because for the first time in ALL of MY DECADES I have triggered jealous, insecure, female trolls (THREE in two years) to come out of the woodwork to stalk and hassle me, a STRANGER, for simply existing at one point or another (with absolutely NO FOUL PLAY) in the lives of two men that we have in common (one new bitch who has the leftovers of my ex and two other bitches complaining about another man that they allegedly haven’t wanted in years, but mad anyway ‘cause they apparently hate that he got an upgrade💅🏽). Oh… and what’s with them all having Central/ Eastern European/ Slavic ancestry… including the States-born wretch?🤔

Besides this fu€%ery, I’ve had three sugar*daddies contact me on Instagram… and now, this chick. I’m not into chicks, but do appreciate that her fake profile picture is, at least, attractive.

😆🤦🏽‍♀️💁🏽‍♀️ #WHATtheFUCK!!!?

PART 1 of 2 ~ SURVIVAL “STEW vs. SOUP” (Inspired on 3/30/2020) ~

I am definitely NO CHEF, but do know how to survive and make reasonably tasty, healthy, illness-preventing food last a long time while on a budget and/ or LOCKDOWN… the new normal. Aside from cheating for the first week of isolation by ordering a lot of GrubHub to support businesses (and avoid actually cooking), I’ve managed to make two weeks’ worth of food last for a month. In this group of pics and video (go to my Facebook or Instagram to see my video), I decided (at 1 o’clock in the morning) to make with similar ingredients that I had roasted days earlier (3/27/2020), (red) potato soup with a lot of other vegetables like red onions, sweet peppers, broccoli, and baby spinach… add some Angostura Bitters (a Trini thing), sautéed Beyond (fake) sausage and quinoa then, DROWNED them all in minced ginger and garlic to knock out any possible “Corona Cooties” in my body. My house smelled HEAVENLY!!!🤗 Anyway, as I anticipated during my experiment, the quinoa took over the liquid and what was intended to be potato soup turned into quinoa stew. Et  voila, with the assistance of a mound of delicious Parmesan shavings, a flavorful, hearty meal was made!

You can see how I took advantage of the stew versus soup issue in Part 2.

*Public Service Announcement for Party Hosts*

If you are an exceptionally cleanly person who wants to keep unhygienic remnants of the world out of your space, DO NOT invite people to your home for a special holiday (or any) event without NOTIFYING them in ADVANCE that you REQUIRE their SHOES to be REMOVED upon arrival; Many people put a lot of time, effort, and MONEY into having their OUTFITS be ON-POINT and don’t need their looks ruined by having to—

1. drag their long pants/ dresses on the ground because they UNEXPECTEDLY had to remove their high-heels…

2. regret their last-minute mini-skirt choice due to revealing their stubbled legs, bruise or wrinkled slacks that were tucked in knee-high boots…

3. be embarrassed because, heaven forbid, they either left the house with or developed a hole in their socks on the way to your gathering…

4. explain what their fierce cosplay couture get-up would’ve looked like with their kicks in-tact…

5. become FURIOUS because someone stole their Manolo Blahniks that would’ve been otherwise securely guarded by their “foot soldiers” (a shout-out to Carrie on “Sex and the City”)

It is rude and inconsiderate to do so because their pride and (hopefully) uplifted party spirit are more important than your having to sweep and disinfect your floors when they’re gone… something that you’d probably be dying to do anyway, freak {geisha~giggle}.

You’re welcome.😼

GeishaGlam by C+I ~ Dressed to the Nines

I finally got my new, sparkly toys, in the mail. I was supposed to have them for my movie shoot, in a mansion, but USPS screwed up the delivery and sent them a week late.

Anyway, I love my Desert Bloom Drop Earrings as well as my Mirabelle Statement Bracelet and Petite Collar Necklace. I’m not one for floral designs, but these pieces are very elegant, as is the antique-styled Pavé North-South Ring.

My dilemma was whether or not to wear a necklace with my one-sleeved gown. Which do you prefer?

GeishaGlam by C+I ~ Palm Royale

The Chloe+Isabel fashion jewelry line is bringing some spring flavor and diversity to our boudoir of baubles with a sneak-peek, mini-capsule named, “Palm Royale” featured on a chocolatey model… or at least, one of some sort of mocha~latte variety. Our pieces are designed in New York City, and as such, it only seems appropriate that our glamour reflect the array of ethnicities present in the cultural “Capital of the World”. I look forward to the company going farther out of its comfort zone.

Palm Royale is Art Deco-inspired with bold accents of turquoise and splashes howlite– a twist on this color palette can be found on our host-exclusive pieces where sodalite is used as the featured stone.

Here’s a glimpse of the collection and model, in action–

 

As luck would have it, one our fellow merchandisers (also fudgelicious) decided to go in on some “Glamour Shots” to show off the versatility of our new line. These are just a few ways to rock our new Palm Royale collection… more pieces to come, in February! 😀
