I Have To Attend This Event Every Year


 

For as long as I can remember attending this event was always so much fun. Although times have changed and I am now much older it still holds a special place in my heart. Every time I return home during the month of October, it is always centered around The Mississippi State Fair and my sister’s birthday. I guess you can say it is now more like a family tradition.

I grew up in a very small town in Mississippi. With a population now of a little over 1,000 people, Terry, MS is home. It’s the one place where time stands still. Seriously. When I was visiting recently I noticed how different Terry is in comparison to all the other places that I have lived. No one is in a hurry. People will stop and carry on conversations with you. (even if you have no clue as to who they are) What was most surprising was when we had to make a stop at the grocery store and no one had their cell phones in hand. I was like (insert big eyes) Is that even normal?

But it is…

This is the country and there are more important things to do and enjoy and it doesn’t involve a cell phone tower. While I was at home, my sister De’Ana was in town. We were waiting for our youngest sister Jaz to arrive from Atlanta so that we could go to the one place that brings out our inner child.

The Mississippi State Fair

Ahh…the memories. There is nothing like The Mississippi State Fair.  Although I had to do a detox upon return back to Florida, it was worth it. Now that we are older, it is no longer about the rides. It’s about the quality time spent walking up and down the Midway and the food. I wish you could have seen the “list” of items that my dad wanted us to bring back home!

We had to bring in an extra tote bag just to carry all of the food! Not to mention we walked what felt like 10 miles just to find the cinnamon roll stand. De almost threw in the towel. After over 30 minutes of searching in the 90-degree weather, we found it! We were some happy campers.

So your probably wondering what in the hell did we buy?

Well, we purchased:

Elephant Ears

Funnel Cake

Candy Apples

Cinnamon Rolls

Malones Taffy

Penn’s Chicken on a Stick

Shish-Ka-Bobs

3 Important Reasons Why Married Couples Love Las Vegas


Everyone needs and deserves a vacation! I don’t care if you’re a mother, father, or child. It doesn’t matter.

Everyone deserves and needs a vacation.

Prior to taking a trip to Las Vegas my husband and I had not been on a solo trio together in almost 5 years. Basically, we allowed life to get too busy and forgot about how important it is to truly spend one on one time together.

So we planned a trip.

The last trip I remember was a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico A couple of years ago and it was really good. And then we just haven’t done anything together for the past couple of years. So this trip was a little it was one that we really needed both as a couple and individually.

Our trip was last minute. However, we knew that the kids were going to spend some time with the grandparents. Knowing this,  we wanted to work it out just as efficiently as we could. If they’re going for about a week, we wanted to make sure that we had a trip worked into the plans as well.

We drove up to New Orleans and dropped the kids off at the grandparents and we made our way back to Florida. After a few days of work and dropping the family dog off at the kennel we hopped on our flight to Las Vegas. (insert praise hands)

It was kind of weird because we haven’t taken a trip together in so long we were acting like kids in a candy store. Did I mention that we had an entire week planned without our kiddos? (insert praise hands again)

What do we do with ourselves? We don’t have any kids. This is really weird. But it was really, really good for us and that’s why that I want to write this post.

3 Important Reasons Why Married Couples Love Las Vegas-Tiffany D. Brown

Fremont Street, Las Vegas

 

Number 1: Quality Time

I would have to say the number one reason you would love Las Vegas is that you and your partner would have the chance to reconnect. It is a great opportunity to talk about things, and have the opportunity to enjoy some “first” experiences together. Although I travel a lot to different conferences, I rarely get the chance to take trips with my husband outside of the trips we take as a family.

Quality time is a really big deal. One thing that I want to make sure to do was to unplug.  I didn’t bring my computer or my laptop. I made a point to ensure that this trip was going to be strictly a vacation. No blogging,  no YouTube,  and barely any Instagram. I know that being on my iPhone is a big deal to him and he thinks I’m on it all the time 24/7  (which is totally not true) but it is the perception of me being on my phone all the time. So I made sure that I left my computer behind and I only used my phone to capture pictures and content that I could share later. Most importantly, he knew that I was present and I wasn’t so concerned with posting all the time.

Honestly, it was quite refreshing not to be so worried about social media and posting, but just living in the moment and enjoying the memories that we were making with each other.

Number 2: Have a Bucket List

Make a list make a bucket list of destinations that the two of you would want to see and experience. This would have to be a key takeaway for me.  Because we’ve done trips in the past but it hasn’t been to where I’ve created a “bucket list”  of places that I knew what wanted to visit/experience. Granted,  didn’t get a chance to visit every single one of them but we checked off the majority of the things on the list. This made it so much easier to make sure that we maximized our time in Las Vegas.

Here are a few things that we had on our “bucket list”

  1.  Take a picture at the Welcome to Vegas sign.

  2.  Visit the Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio

  3.  Watch the Bellagio Fountain Show

  4.  Visit Seven Magic Mountains

Just to name a few! I will have a complete list of all of the things we did coming up in a separate post. So stay tuned!

Number #3:  It’s not all about gambling!

It’s more about…being able to have adult conversations and talk about our plans for life. We set goals and experienced so much as a couple.  It’s all about the experience.

One thing was for sure, it was really, really, HOT!  I would suggest not to visit Las Vegas during the months of June, July, August. This, of course, is if you would like to enjoy outdoors during the day. We would suggest the best time to visit would be during the months of October,  November, or even September. Trust me! (we asked a local lol)

This trip was extremely nice and now I am ready to plan our next getaway! By taking this trip, I really want to travel more.  Thank you, Mazda because of your partnership we were able to experience so many different things that we would not have been able to experience. Thank you for sponsoring this post and allowing us to ride around in this brand new CX 9. This vehicle was truly amazing!  I really wish I could have brought the 2018 CX-9  back home so the kids could have enjoyed it as well.

Remember to make time for each other but most importantly, travel with each other.

Exploring With Toyota

I know your probably thinking that this will be a “style” post, but honestly its a post about a different kind of style. I had the opportunity to travel to California a couple of weeks ago to attend a conference. This conference isn’t just any conference, it is the ALT Summit, the conference that help me in so many ways as an influencer. This year I didn’t just attend the conference, I was a speaker! Yep, a 2018 speaker, and I am now back in the saddle creating new resources and prepping to launch something else that I am very excited about. (details coming soon)

The conference was held in Palm Springs, California. I love to travel so, I didn’t just want to fly directly into Palm Springs, so I opted to fly into Los Angeles. There is something about exploring new places and things, and I would not have had the opportunity to do that without the help of Toyota. I had the chance to explore in style in the new 2018 Toyota Corolla. Y’all, this car could have not been more perfect for my little adventures. We bonded instantly and let me tell you, it was hard to turn in the keys and say goodbye.

So lucky to have my sister with me on this trip, she was able to capture some footage of me riding in style in the 2018 Toyota Corolla! Seriously this car is perfect for anyone.

Check out the video below or you can watch here.

How to Travel And Explore In Style With Toyota-Tiffany D. BrownWhen you have an hour drive you have to turn on the music.  Being that in my full-time career, I am in my car 90% of the time. I love listening to audiobooks or new and interesting podcasts. Now, it take me a little while to get familiar with how everything worked but once I did we were ready to roll! I was able to hook up the booth-tooth for hands-free phone call and directions. This feature is one of my favorites because being in a new area and driving for a long distance it allows me to stay focused on the road and surrounding drivers.


Here is a list of a few places that I visited while on my little road trip in California:

Joshua Tree National Park– thanks to my sister we had the chance to stay a few nights in a AirBNB. I experienced the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen. Watching this sunrise really made me appreciate the small things in life. Sometimes we need to take the time to unplug and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us everyday.

Cheeky’s Restaurant

Altitude Summit

LuLu’s Palm Springs

The Saguaro Hotel Palm Springs

Desert Hot Springs


I was so impressed with the 2018 Toyota Corolla, it had much more space that I expected. I was able to climb from the front seat to the back with ease. Now, I know you’re probably wondering why did I do that? Well, my sister and I decided to do a little planning and goal setting from the passengers point of view. To top it off I drove over 1,600 miles and only paid $34 to fill up the tank! Say what?! It doesn’t get any better than that!.


I will have more of my trip to California on the blog soon so definitely make sure you are subscribed to the TDB Insider so you don’t miss it.

Catch us at NEW YORK FASHION WEEK 2017!

 

When you get a text at 7:30 a.m. you know it has to be something very important. My sister De’Ana, text me and said…we are going to New York Fashion Week so call me when you get some free time.

Say WHAT?!…

Now, it was funny because just a few weeks prior to her message, I mentioned wanting to go to NYFW. We both figured it was probably to late to go, and besides, it has always been on our bucket list but we never just made it official…until now.

In that very moment of receiving her message, I was scared to death, but I was ALL IN!

We have talked about going for years. At first, I wanted to just go and experience it, then I wanted to go as a makeup artist, and now I just want to go to say that I have done it. The best part about it, is that I will be with my sister. The one that pushes me to my limits, encourages me, and get on my ass if I am completely out of line. She has skills that I can only wish to one day have.  I have traits that help her as well. We are a TEAM, a team no matter the Good, Bad, or Ugly.

It was such a whirlwind not knowing what we were getting into, but it could not have worked out any better for us. We were able to get airline tickets, a great hotel, book pictures with one of or favorite photographers, and plan a few shows and tours for our trip.

There will be so much going on! We will meet up in New York and take the city by storm! Be sure to follow us on Instagram Tiffany and De’Ana. We will be on IG stories, posting our NYFW outfits and vlogging our entire trip!

Are there any locations that we must see while we are in town?
Will you be there? Let us know in the comments below, we would love to meet you!
