Sensual Motion & Meditation Retreat

As this year comes to an end, I think it is important to reflect on the good & the bad of this year. The good, to thank God for all of the blessings He has sent your way & the bad, to learn from it & use it as momentum to prosper in 2017. I…

Mic Check, Mike Check!

So if you read the #WhoIsVLeroux? (Sweet or Savage)? post, you know I’ve been trying my hand at a little music blogging. At first music blogging was something new & I just wanted to try it, since then it has become something that I really enjoy. The artist to be featured in this post, definitely confirmed my love…

Greens on the Go UPDATE!!

Hey, y’all (if we were in person y’all would know the drawl is real strong today)! So if you read my Clean Eating: It Works! post, then you know that I’ve been incorporating a new supplement into my diet. I am now replacing my vitamins with Greens on the Go, by It Works! In the…

Trump or Travel

I’m not sure about y’all, but I am so ready to VOTE (make sure y’all do that), & get this mess over with. On some days, thinking about these elections & the overall state of America right now takes my anxiety from a 2 to a 10 (but God is able). So I’m here number…

Clean Eating: It Works!

Hey, y’all! Guess what? I finally got my first request! One of my readers asked me to do a post about how I transitioned from eating horribly to healthily, so that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. If any of you want me to blog about a specific subject, please go to the homepage, click “Contact”…

Why I Chose the Dominican Republic (DR Series Part 1)

Okay guys, so I’ve been wanting to blog about my travels in the Dominican Republic for some time now, but I wanted to be in the right head space when I did it, and I think I’m there now. Ya see, this past January through June was everything but conventional and really made me grow…

What is Mieroglyphs?

Well, I’m glad you asked. Mieroglyphs is an accessories company that specializes in making bracelets, dog collars, key chains, etc. from sustainable material. They are vegan, cruelty-free (which Luca, my Frenchie, & I LOVE), and ALL of their products are handcrafted, which I also love. Because I am slowly but surely trying to transition into…

Yoga… Seriously, Do Something YOU Love!

So I know this post has nothing to do with travel, but one thing you should know about me is that I can’t be placed in a mold. Yes, travel is the main focus of my blog, however, because I have this platform I feel I should write about other things that are placed upon my…

¡Bienvenido!

“Bienvenido” means welcome in español, & that’s exactly what I want to do, welcome you to the new & improved BlackGalAbroad, website. Or, as I like to call it, BlackGalAbroad 2.0. Same content, same attitude, just with a new face & a few new features! I am SUPER excited about all the new features because…

Flingin’ into Fall

Although my favorite season is summer, October is my favorite month. I know that probably doesn’t make sense at all, but that’s what I like! Since summer has sadly come to a close & fall has arrived, I’m gonna give you guys a few places to go, things to eat, and super cute wardrobe ideas…

Girls Love Beyoncé ![#formationworldtour]

Let me just start by saying that this was just as much a surprise for me as it is for y’all! I had no idea that I was going to this concert, it just happened! Talk about blessings, on blessings, on blessings *Big Sean voice*. My daddy literally just sent me a text the Friday before…

Brunchin’ at Boogalou

Brunch has quickly turned into one of my favorite hobbies. Yes! I said hobby, because it is! Finding a good brunch spot, with drinks (it ain’t brunch without mimosas), getting all the crew there, & finding a cute outfit to wear to said brunch all takes planning & preparation. Now this doesn’t have to be…
