Last week the good people of ASUS sent me the new Transformer Book T300 Chi. Those unfamiliar may wonder, what exactly is the Transformer Book T300 Chi? It isn’t an tablet. It isn’t an laptop. It’s both. Yep. The best way I can describe the Transformer Book T300 Chi, is imagining your favorite laptop and favorite tablet, just had a baby. The ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi is the perfect all-around 2-in-1 device.

Happy 5 Year Blogiversary to me!

I lied. Nikki and the City hasn’t been around for 5 years. However, it’s been 5 years since I started blogging. I was deeply inspired by my friend Melanie Denise. At the time she was a student at Howard University and had a SUPER cute blog. I loved the fact that anyone could express themselves online in the form of a picture, text, audio, or video, and since I’ve ALWAYS had something to say, I knew I needed my own blog immediately.

A few years ago I had a chance to participate in the Macy’s ‘American Icons’ event on State St. It’s getting warmer in Chicago, which is a perfect time for Macy’s to do it again, and they are. This Thursday (May 14, 2015) to be exact.
