A Lifestyle Experience

Hi everybody! For those who know me, and for those who don’t, my name is Felicia Rae and I want to personally welcome you to my website. I mean, I don’t know if you consider a website introduction being personal, but believe me, we’ll get personal. For starters, I want to thank you all for coming to my website in the first place. This project has been something that has been in the back of my mind for ages and I don’t think a part of me truly knew what to do or how to get started. If I’m being even more honest, a huge part of me was simply scared that this was going to be just another “blog” out there, but I was determined to not allow that to be the case. Black Champagne is something that has many more facets and projects up its sleeve, but for now, let’s start with the basics:


Why Black Champagne?

Has anyone here seen Crazy, Stupid, Love where Steve Carell’s character refers to his wife as the perfect combination of cute and sexy? That’s seriously what came to mind when I thought of Black Champagne: being the perfect combination of cute and sexy, edgy and classy, daring and innocent. It’s this idea that no matter who you are, guy or girl, you have the ability to embody both qualities because who says you can’t? When you come to my blog and you take pieces from my website, I want you to feel like you are part of the Black Champagne lifestyle because it truly is a lifestyle experience. We are going to go on road trips together, we’re going to be bold with our makeup, we’re going to find the best pizza or burger in the city, we’re going to master the art of modeling in a boudoir photoshoot, and everything else in between. We can do it all and experience this all because that is what living the Black Champagne lifestyle is all about. However, this can’t be possible without y’all. I want you to feel free to message me, tag me, and if you really know me, text me about some ideas of things you would like to see me do, review, watch, read, and so on. This is an experience worth being a part of and I want you to be a part of the family, my family.


What kind of content will I post?

There are four categories to my website: lifestyle, beauty & fashion, health & wellness, and travel. However, I don’t want your minds to be limited on these categories because there is so much depth and experiences that are within these categories that make this even more exciting. For those that don’t know, my undergraduate degree is in Journalism and my Master’s degree is in Early Childhood Education so best believe that the topics and conversations we will have will be endless. However, I will note that the opinions on my website are exactly that: opinions. What I share and what I think are for entertainment purposes only but if there is something that you can gain, think about, ponder, or question from my content, then I have succeeded in my purpose.



All my love and gratitude

Without a doubt, my family will always be the people I am thankful for that have been a part of this journey. However, I would like to give a special thank you to my mother: the person who has pushed me every day to be better than what I’ve settled for. I’m done settling mother. I’m going to seize this opportunity with every fiber of my being. To my cousins, Danielle and Edmund, this project wouldn’t have come to life without your support and I will always be grateful for you two.

Although this person is not family, this is someone who is part of my Black Champagne family for life: Brittney Lopez. Without your patience, creativity, and determination, my vision would not have come to life. I’m so thankful for you, I don’t think I could say thank you enough but best believe I won’t let all your hard work go to waste.

Lastly, thank you to everyone who will become a part of the Black Champagne family. Welcome home.
