It’s been 18 years since a woman of color has worn the Miss Louisiana crown. That all changed when my friend Holli Conway won the Miss Louisiana pageant on June 23, 2018 joining the legacy of Nita Whitaker (1984) and Faith Jenkins (2000) @judgefaithjenkins Last night Holli won the talent portion of the Miss America pageant and hopes to be the first Miss Louisiana to win the Miss America title. Holli is only the third Black Miss Louisiana in its over 50 year history. I had the pleasure of meeting her while judging Ms. Louisiana in 2016 and she was first runner up that year. Her father Hollis Conway @hollisconway is now my friend, an inspirational speaker, and two-time Olympic medalist (but thank God she looks like her mom 🤦🏽‍♂️😂). The third and final night of preliminary competition is this Friday. The 2019 Miss America pageant airs at 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9 on ABC. NO MISS LOUISIANA HAS EVER WON MISS AMERICA. If Holli does, she is straight up, unadulterated, regardless of her race, a huge part of HISTORY because she will have done what NO ONE has ever been able to do! Please tune in and give her your support. @missamericala @welcometo_holliwood #hollic #holliconway #misslouisiana #missamerica #nitawhitaker #faithjenkins #judgefaith #beautypageant #queen #lilsis #hollisconway #olympian #nothingcanstopyou #fatherdaughter @missamerica

Was pleasantly surprised that it tasted really good 😋 kinda remind me of the butterfly fritters found in the Singapore hawker centre... fried dough with a sweet coating over it~

Their highly raved coffee was mehhhh... I would say just go for the Beignets! 😎

I’ve tried to explain why to people, but if they’ve never been it’s hard to describe. The drive through Louisiana was beautiful. At one point, we drove on the highway over a bayou. It rained off and on while we were there and it was humid as heck! There is something about New Orleans that is magical. With the trees and plants, it feels old and overgrown, like you’ve gone back in time. The houses are amazing and each is unique in color, design, and size. I’m convinced that Bourbon Street is the Las Vegas of the South. So many people were out drinking in the early afternoon and there were bachelor or bachelorette parties everywhere! We didn’t plan for this to happen but we coincidentally visited New Orleans during a jazz festival to celebrate Louis Armstrong. We were in a parade and went to a jazz mass. It was one of the most fun and crazy things I’ve ever experienced! Finally, the people. Locals were so SO kind to us. When you walked down the street, people talked to you and asked where you were from. Multiple locals told us to come back and not be strangers. Brendan and I felt strangely at home after only a few days and were genuinely very sad to leave. #satchmosummerfest2018 #NYroadtrip2018 (Also, I wouldn’t say that the locals think it’s Mardi Gras all time like some stereotypes suggest; I think tourists want it to be Mardi Gras when they visit so the locals just sell beads and stuff for the tourists.)

One day he was like “I got blenders down! I go anywhere! Up hills, downstairs, ANY-WHERE! We got to film somethin’!”
.
So I got to work visualizing how far out could we take the blender. We filmed all over Los Angeles and out in the desert 🌵 too. We wanted to make something special that hadn’t been done before. Anything special is going to take way more work than expected and this scene for Diversion 4.0 was no exception. It took 2 trips to California to complete this project. This week’s video is a peek behind the scenes on that project. The new lab is now in Hawaii and that phone 📱 is ringing again. It’s that same Louisiana number.....

The air - moist, sultry, secretive, and far from fresh - felt as if it were being exhaled into one's face. Sometimes it even sounded like heavy breathing. Honeysuckle, swamp flowers, magnolia, and the mystery smell of the river scented the atmosphere, amplifying the intrusion of organic sleaze. It was aphrodisiac and repressive, soft and violent at the same time.” ~ Tom Robbins #dawn #bayou #louisiana #gom #tomrobbins

My friend Merrie Pearl has seized him and a pug from an owner who kept them chained up outside 24/7, through tropical storms and the Louisiana summer heat. Rico had died 5 months earlier and I was in the middle of building a house so wasn’t quite ready for a dog but my apartment allowed pets and I was home for a month—I could foster this little guy, get him healthy and send him on his way, right? He was so scared and malnourished when I picked him up. He had fleas and heart worms, bad hips. But it was love at first sight and I immediately became a #fosterfailure. He is 6 years old today, healthy and happy and has captured hearts in Louisiana, Texas and Tennessee. He can head tilt like no one and that tongue! You know, if you’ve met him. Happy Birthday Ninja! ❤️🐶❤️ #ninjagoldring #adoptdontshop

Natchitoches, Louisiana is such a lovely City year round, but it turns into a magical place every holiday season. Thankful I got to share the experience with my mom this year. She agreed, it’s so magical! Since 1927, thousands of twinkling lights illuminate downtown along Cane River Lake turning it into the “City of Lights.” The Natchitoches Christmas Festival has been ranked as the 3rd “Best Holiday Light Show” behind Rockefeller Center and Disney Land thanks to over 300,000 lights illuminating downtown Natchitoches and over 100 lighted set pieces along Cane River. A must experience for anyone who loves Christmas or needs to get into the Christmas 🎄 spirit ❤️

Happy New Year! - From us to you, with love 🎭 We started 2018 rocky when Tia Penny passed but we finished 2018 strong. We started our New Year of 2018 in Italy and finished the year in New Orleans, Louisiana. Ryan and I bought our first home, we got engaged, and we got married!! I’ve grown so much as a person individually and we’ve grown so much as partners. We’re lucky to have both good and bad examples of partnerships/relationships as it keeps us grounded and shows us what to strive for or what we don’t ever want to be as partners. 2018 has opened my eyes to my true friends and family and We’ve been really blessed with our family across the street for so many reasons. My family continues to love and support me and I am forever thankful! I know I’ve missed a lot but the gist is... we had an amazing 2018 and I’m excited for 2019 🤗 thank you to everyone who’s made 2018 phenomenal... will you join us again in 2019? Now... please enjoy some pictures from our New Year’s Eve 🎆 started out on a swamp, ate delicious food, walked bourbon, got into a concert to see Florida Georgia Line, & brought in the new year watching fire works on the Mississippi River!! #nobaddays #travel #familyfirst #neworleans #louisiana #mississippiriver #NYE

It was just a week after a devastating, record breaking flood had torn through Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas- just an hour or so upstream, from New Orleans. Almost exactly on the 10 year anniversary of Katrina- a lot of residents who relocated to the “flood-safe” zone lost everything for a second time. There are many low-income residents in the area, and 93% of those living there were without flood insurance. For those who had insurance, the devastation was still unsurmountable- insurance doesn’t replace a lifetime of memories. The floods directly followed a summer that had already split the region at its seams- the police murder of Alton Sterling followed by a retaliation- two officers killed in response. In a way, the floods seemed to bring the community back together, as residents were forced to lean on one another. A region often neglected by the government, a region seldom discussed in the media- the residents of Southeast Louisiana are used to being self-sufficient, self-reliant. I knew that if there would be a community that would come together to overcome such a tragedy, it would be that of Southeast Louisiana. It felt like a story that chose me- a story that I had to (help) give a voice to. The commercial job I was on wrapped, and I immediately flew myself and a small crew back to Louisiana. It’s been one of the most meaningful pieces of work I’ve made in my career, the people of Southeast Louisiana have forever left an imprint on me. Watch the full film, “Above Below Sea Level,” on @vimeo. Link in bio.

Jensen the interplay between architecture and nature was sublime at this time of year: “Louisiana seems bigger in September. The inner garden space between the buildings is very different from the winter time...at this time of year the park is more unpredictable and exciting to explore.” — Quote from Knud W. Jensen’s memoir My Louisiana Life (Mit Louisiana-liv), 1985.

Tomorrow I’ll be leaving for Louisiana to meet up with @climatenexus’ Freedom to Breathe bus tour, a tour traveling across the U.S. highlighting stories of injustice, resistance, and hope. The tour is about how climate justice is social justice and how climate change has a greater negative impact on people and communities of color.
This image I painted is part of the painting I made for the wrap of the bus and I’m looking forward to seeing it in person, learning first hand about these issues, and sharing it with you all this week. I’ll be visiting a few places over the coming days including Cancer Alley, a stretch of land in Louisiana filled with fossil fuel infrastructure, giving the close by towns that have high black, brown, and indigenous populations some of the highest rates of cancer in the country.

Follow my stories through Saturday to learn more and tour Louisiana with me. First stop: New Orleans!
Special thanks to @amplifierart for this amazing opportunity.

I don't miss a day without talking to my mom, the rest of my family in louisiana doesn't check up on me at all and never had any faith in me having a bright future and always talked down on me and my mom and brothers that was the reason of her moving to texas from louisiana, to get away from the negativity they tried to build up on my mom... my dad is that common dead beat that lied about everything he told me he was going to do... when I was younger i was the first to say my dad was going to do this and that for me and he never did... just found out this character is living in alaska...lol literally living life all the way in alaska with a 17 year old son in texas with no one to look up to that he promised the world to ... im surrounded by peers that have their families and have almost everything handed to them and wouldn't last a single day in my shoes.. I've met a few genuine people these 2 years ive been in texas and would give my last to those few people because of the fact that they understand where i come from and I appreciate everything they've done for me ...im not telling you all this for any attention or to feel my pain but to open yall's eyes and appreciate life and count your blessings... the only person that can make a change in your life is you and you only and always put god 1st fr without god somewhere in your life you won't make it.💯

SOUND ON! CORRECTION: epiglottis in humans is at the base of the throat not the dangly part haha. The Louisiana Pine snake is indigenous to the longleaf pine forests of west-central Louisiana and East Texas. This snake is rarely seen and spends most of its time in pocket gopher burrows which constitutes most of its meals. Their habitat (longleaf pine forest) is largely fragmented and only 4% of what was once one of North America's most extensive ecosystems exists to this day. 29 species that inhabit this ecosystem are threatened or endangered. This includes the Louisiana pine snake, gopher tortoise, and red-cockaded woodpecker.

Pierre Caliste Landry, a former slave turned educator and minister, is noted as the first African American to be elected mayor of a town in the United States. Landry was born into slavery on April 19, 1841 in Ascension Parish, Louisiana. In 1866, Landry, moved to a African American community in Donaldsonville, the former capital of Louisiana between 1829 to 1831. Within a year, he started two day schools and a night school for the children, built the first home owned by a former slave, and opened a small store. In 1868, he was unanimously elected as Mayor of Donaldsonville, making him the first African American to be elected as mayor of a town in the United States. He served for one term, and additionally served as a Justice of the Peace, member of the Ascension Parish School Board, and Superintendent of Schools. In 1872 later Landry was appointed Postmaster of his town by President Ulysses S. Grant and elected to the State House of Representatives. Landry was also responsible for founding the third African American College in Louisiana, New Orleans University, which later became Dillard University in 1935. #blackhistoryfacts

It was just a week after a devastating, record breaking flood had torn through Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas- just an hour or so upstream, from New Orleans. Almost exactly on the 10 year anniversary of Katrina- a lot of residents who relocated to the “flood-safe” zone lost everything for a second time. There are many low-income residents in the area, and 93% of those living there were without flood insurance. For those who had insurance, the devastation was still unsurmountable- insurance doesn’t replace a lifetime of memories. The floods directly followed a summer that had already split the region at its seams- the police murder of Alton Sterling followed by a retaliation- two officers killed in response. In a way, the floods seemed to bring the community back together, as residents were forced to lean on one another. A region often neglected by the government, a region seldom discussed in the media- the residents of Southeast Louisiana are used to being self-sufficient, self-reliant. I knew that if there would be a community that would come together to overcome such a tragedy, it would be that of Southeast Louisiana. It felt like a story that chose me- a story that I had to (help) give a voice to. The commercial job I was on wrapped, and I immediately flew myself and a small crew back to Louisiana. It’s been one of the most meaningful pieces of work I’ve made in my career, the people of Southeast Louisiana have forever left an imprint on me.

————————————————
Fact 5. Louisiana is one of 29 states who have legalized medical marijuana. Nine others have legalized recreational marijuana. The original list of eligible treatments was limited to cancer, HIV, AIDS, cachexia or wasting syndrome, seizure disorders, epilepsy, spasticity, Crohn's disease, muscular dystrophy or multiple sclerosis. Newly-added conditions made eligible for medical marijuana in Louisiana include intractable pain, glaucoma, severe muscle spasms, PTSD and Parkinson’s disease, as well as some people with autism spectrum disorder. Nine licenses have been awarded for one dispensary in each of the nine regions designated by the Department of Health in Louisiana. #womengrowLA #cannabis #marijuana #hemp #nutraceuticals #endocannabinoidsystem #cbd #thc @louisiana_cannaboss

Thank you, all, for showing up, reading, sharing, and supporting my debut U.S. novel, “Louisiana Catch.” I am humbled: published by a progressive but small press...“Louisiana Catch” won me the VOICES OF THE YEAR AWARD @blogher @sheknows (past recipients have been Chelsea Clinton and founder of the #MeToo movement). The book was nominated for the Pushcart Prize and is listed as the top 50 fiction books of 2018 by @cyruswebbpresents—he joins Oprah Winfrey Network’s digital content starting March '19🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 🌟🌟🌟 6-7 years in the making, #LouisianaCatch was an offbeat book that didn’t cater to the stereotype many wanted to believe about South Asians and women, in general. But I persisted. My publisher, Victor Volkman, gave the novel a home and worked as hard as I did❤️🙏🏼 We have results to show that our team effort bore fruits. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

🌟
🌟For anyone with a dream: don’t let others opinion of you or your goals impact what you do with your life❤️ No two people are alike...neither are their dreams nor their chosen paths. Listen to all but do what works best for you. Stay authentic and honest and focused. Don’t criticize others just because you don’t understand their path. At the same time, you don’t have to concern yourself with understanding everyone’s decisions🤷🏻‍♀️ If you believe in yourself and are willing to work harder than everybody else and not be distracted by self-created competition and insecurities, your work will find its audience...it will find the right home🌟 The quality of your writing and ability to work hard can trump the size of the press. Here is wishing you a fearless, fulfilling, successful, and creative 2019❤️ #bookstagram #lifeofawriter #writingadvice

In 2019 my only New Years resolution is to travel more and to tap into some yoga and meditation. I want to work on my flexibility so my end goal is be able to place my head on my thigh and balance these energies lol
I have my eyes set on Costa Rica and/or Indonesia this spring and Europe this summer.

The term Creole can have many meanings, but during the early days of Louisiana, it meant that a person was born in the colony and was the descendant of French or Spanish parents. The term is a derivative of the word “criollo,” which means native or local, and was intended as a class distinction. In present Louisiana, Creole is a term used to describe people whose ancestry traces to the state of Louisiana prior to the territory being acquired by the U.S. in the Louisiana Purchase. These people are mainly of French, Spanish, Native American, Afro Caribbean, African heritage or a mixture of these heritages. The term Black Creole refers to freed slaves from Haiti and their descendants.
Still another class of Creole originates with the placage system in which white and creole men took on mixed-race mistresses in a lifelong arrangement, even if the men were married or married later. In this arrangement, the women had property, their children were educated and entitled to part of the man’s estate upon his death. In New Orleans, these people made up the artisan class and became wealthy and very influential.
“Cajun” is derived from “Acadian” which are the people the modern day Cajuns descend from. These were the French immigrants who were expelled from Nova Scotia, and eventually landed in Louisiana after decades of hardship and exile. Hearty folks from many backgrounds married into the culture, including Germans, Italians, Free People of Color, Cubans, Native Americans and Ango-Americans. French or patois, a rural dialect, was always spoken. Due to the isolation of the group in the southern locations of Louisiana, they have retained a strong culture to this day.
As to the difference in the cuisines, Creole can be defined as “city cooking” with influences from Spain, Africa, Germany, Italy and the West Indies combined with native ingredients. Cajun cooking is more of a home cooked style that is rich with the ingredients at hand in the new world the Acadians settled into. A one pot, hearty meal is typical in Cajun cooking.

You might not be familiar with his music, but if you’re familiar with the Rolling Stones and a whole host of blues and rock radio acts then you’ve heard his influence. When I was a kid Clifford Antone gave me one of Lazy’s records,(and one of Slim Harpo’s records), both on the record label Excello. Clifford‘s family was from Port Author Texas and mine was from Beaumont Texas the next town over and our families knew each other, long before I moved to Austin. Anyway, I had heard rumors that Lazy Lester had passed so I called @ccadcockcrows who is King of all things cool-Louisiana,(follow CC...one of my favs), & found out Lester had not in fact passed away, but is in the hospital and not doing well. So if you are of the praying type, please say a prayer for him. If you are of the science type, then just think good thoughts for him. I would like to go see him if possible but I’m leaving for Europe and not sure if I can get over to see him. I’m a huge fan, and this man’s music has had a profound effect on American music and he is not very well known outside of older blues fans, record collectors and musicians. 🙏❤️ PS two good Lazy starter songs if you want to download or buy are his hits “I Hear Ya Knockin” & “Sugar Coated Love”. But make sure you get the original recordings. Id just as soon listen to these two songs as any songs on the planet. #lazylester #excellorecords #louisiana #blues #country

Is this why there’s so many stupid ass comments and dms lately? 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ #justsaying #sorrynotsorry #wakeup A potentially deadly brain-eating amoeba has been detected in a Louisiana neighborhood’s drinking water — the third time the terrifying discovery has been made in the same parish since 2015, reports said.

Naegleria fowleri, which causes fatal brain swelling and tissue destruction, was found over the weekend in Terrebonne Parish, deep in the Louisiana bayou about an hour south of New Orleans, WWL-TV reported. “It kinda freaks me out because this is my home, I can’t do what I usually do,” Lindsey Dupre told WWL-TV.
“I want to know I’m secure rather than freak out over an amoeba.” All freshwater sources in the parish have been affected, including drinking water, the water in the bayous and pools, plus water used for showers and baths.
The water is “perfectly safe to drink,” claimed Michael Sobert from Consolidated Waterworks, “it’s just not safe to get up your nose.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said infection usually occurs when people go swimming in areas where the amoeba is present or when drinking water enters the nose — it can’t be contracted simply from drinking water contaminated with the organism.

Officials have switched from using chloramine to free chlorine, which is more effective at killing off the amoebas, but it’s a temporary fix for a problem exacerbated by the area’s scorching late spring temperatures, which allow the simple-celled organism to flourish. The parish is looking for a permanent solution and is researching the issue to have a better plan in place for next year.

It’s a way of life, I’m sorry to say that,” Sobert said. “I said it four years ago, as we continue to learn more and more about it, the hope is we can get something that will work.” Last June, Terrebonne Parish’s water system tested positive for the amoeba in a fire hydrant, and it was also discovered in 2015.
the Louisiana Department of Health advises residents to avoid letting water go up their nose during showers, prohibit children from being unsupervised while playing with hoses and sprinklers, and to not submerge their head in the bathtub

The Louisiana Chair now — and then. The museum’s architecture was created by the two Danish architects Jørgen Bo and Vilhelm Wohlert and in connection to the opening of Louisiana in 1958, Wohlert also designed a chair, a lamp and a number of objects intended for use in the museum cafe and in the museum in general. On the occasion of our 60th anniversary, the chair, the lamp and the objects are being relaunched—and the Louisiana Café has been refurbished with the new (original!) chair and the lamp. They are also for sale in the @louisianabutik.

Lazy was the architect of the Louisiana Swamp Blues sound, He's a Louisiana king, a rare breed, the "High Sheriff of Louisiana", and he was a friend. Lazy brought that dirty, sweet, old-fashioned, brutal, alligator blues to Justine’s on so many occasions, playing here with @jaimalano , the Moeller brothers, and Nick Curran. We will miss him forever. Lazy you are our favorite gap-toothed mother***er, the very truest legend, and we love you!

Beso Beauty takes great pride in providing the best & informative Microblading training, and ensuring every student embodies enough confidence to pursue their career as a Microblading Technician! We are approved by the Department of Health & regulated by the Louisiana Board of Regents, thus making Beso Beauty one of the ONLY legal establishments in Louisiana to provide training for Microblading. Being that our company is based off honesty, integrity, & hard work, we believe it’s worth mentioning that there are a number of businesses that’s offering ILLEGAL MICROBLADING TRAINING. Becoming a Microblading technician carries great risks and when you don’t posses the proper training, those risks are even more substantial. Microblading can result in IRREVERSIBLE scar tissue if it is performed by a technician who is not adequately qualified to perform this procedure! The Louisiana Board of Regents has a list of EVERY school in the state of Louisiana that is qualified to offer any type of training and we will attach the link for you to review. We encourage legal training so we ask that everyone who’s interested or considering becoming a Microblading technician to do an extensive amount of research. If you’ve attended a school that is not regulated by the Louisiana Board of Regents & Department of Health, your certificate is not valid or transferable. @besobeauty @besomakeup
