After a fun week in Scottsdale, I was on cloud 9 of creativity and excited about life. I kicked off the weekend meeting up with a new girlfriend who is an IT consultant for Deloitte. She attended my sold-out Money & Mimosas event in March, entitled “Elevate & Captivate” where a panel of super successful women shared their insights on how to level UP and lean IN without losing yourself. After the event she was inspired to start her a side hustle (something we PREACH here at Money & Mimosas) and immediately took steps to launch a drop shipping business on Amazon.
We met up at Drake’s Brewery in Oakland. She and her husband (they’ve only been married for a month- totes adorbs!) moved here from London a short time ago. It was great getting to know her better and to see how Money & Mimosas inspired to take steps to make her already amazing life, even more incredible. I’m so excited to see her Amazon business flourish. I’ll keep you posted.
After meeting up with her, I biked the five miles home to have date night with Nick. It was his turn to cook and he didn’t disappoint.
Nick prepared Ono. Ono is a Hawaiian word meaning “good to eat.” It is commonly known as wahoo and is a close relative of the king mackerel. Along with a delicious salad and a banana-rum cocktail. And these incredible potatoes. SO good.
Total spent today: $0 (My new friend treated me to happy hour- a kind gesture given that she wanted to learn how I have built my multi-million dollar business)

Today, me and Nick slept in until about 7:30a. Then lounged around before heading to our afternoon hike near Stinson Beach. It was about 6.5 miles. I was soooo sweaty afterwards. It was such a great booty, ab and cardio workout!
After our hike, we showered and walked to one of favorite couple’s condo for a dinner soiree. They are French and Trinidadian, and always throw the best intimate get togethers. They also invited a lovely gay black couple. Two men who were just a joy to hang out with!
Tonight they introduced us to Kir Royal- a French cocktail with crème de cassis topped with champagne (we did sparkling wine - which Stefàn kept reminding us that we were not drinking the beloved champagne, lol) and served in a flute glass. It was delicious.
The meal consisted of a delectable salad of beets, tomatoes, and other veggies picked from our friends’ garden. Along with cheese, crackers, pate for appetizers, and roasted chicken with Kuchela (a popular Caribbean spice). So fun!
Total spent today: $45 (wine for our friends + lunch picnic during our hike

Today, Nick went out mountain biking while I shopped around Walnut Creek.
I stopped in Sephora looking for a tinted moisturizer, a new lip stain and glow oil. Fernando one the store’s managers was super kind and helped me find the perfect products for my skin tone. If you are ever in the Walnut Creek Sephora, ask for Fernando and let him know you read about him on Money & Mimosas - he is the absolute best!
And since I spent over $75 at the store, I received a free hydrafacial. SO COOL.
After my surprise facial - by the way, I totalllly manifested it, more on that in another post- I headed over to Teleferic to visit my fave bartender, Wes. He made me custom drinks based on different feelings I shared with him. Such as delighted and ecstatic. We are mixing up something special for you- I can’t wait to share it with you! Unt
Until then, here is one of the cocktails he made for me based on my Caribbean heritage and mixed background.
