The Brown Girl Blogger of Detroit Series continues! My next Brown Girl Blogger I’d love to give light to is Akilah. Her bubbly personality and kindheartedness are two of the reasons why I was drawn to her as a person who  turned to a very good friend.

More about Akilah:

Beginning in 2015, Akilah Moore launched Dine and Drink Moore, a food blog. Akilah’s creative writing skills date back to her time in high school when she discovered her knack for blogging. While in high school, she was working two jobs which were both in the food industry when the idea for her food blog blossomed.

From serving, to food running, to working the pass, to being a line cook, Akilah has worked every station and learned every aspect of a restaurant. Back and front of house are usually separated by a “wall” and although it seemed typical for the two to never cross, her personality and bubbly presence broke through that wall and she’s been proud of it ever since.

“I’m proud to have really been behind the scenes of a lot of these food spots and have so much inside knowledge. It makes dining that much more enjoyable and blog that much more genuine”.

Akilah’s talent for writing and her bond with the food service industry are really the skeletons of her food blog. She uses her social media platforms and posts in order to achieve her long term goal, to be a food critic for a fashion and lifestyle magazine. Food critics take a lot of analytical, creative writing, and people skills. Practice makes perfect, and with every Dine and Drink Moore post, she gets better.

Dine and Drink Moore has gone nationwide and the next step is international. Stay tuned, stay connected, and stay informed  so you can keep up with your local food scenes because Akilah will be in an area near you!

Below is Akilah’s vlog post on her Five Favorite Food Finds. Enjoy!

When you promised yourself you’d go on a strict intermittent fasting diet but you can’t put down the sweets 🥴⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I haven’t consistently been to the gym in over a year. But quarantine fasho put a screeching halt to any physical alternative activities I could’ve been doing in the absence of the gym... like twerking in clubs. Dancing in streets at a block party. And other random stuff.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I gained at least 20 pounds. To some, I look normal. To me; this is the biggest I’ve ever been and I’m extremely unrecognizable to ME. I plan to change up my diet and eat way less meat (never going vegan tho), drinking more detox and energizer teas, and picking up the slack with the help of @jabsgym_em. But if y’all have any reccs for appetite suppressants - like really good ones - be a pal and comment them down below. I’m sure we could all use the tip as the world prepares to “shutdown” again 😉

Dating in Detroit sucks. It’s already difficult to meet new people because, where the hell are they? What circles do they run in? What restaurants do they like to eat at? And by chance if you happen to like the same things, will that person you plan to bag even be there the same time as you? Let’s not forget to add on also running the risk of being catfished in real life because this mask stays ON 😭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My dating journey this season hasn’t been pretty. It’s been pretty pitiful. That’s why I love that @bumble has made it super easy to date while safely socially distancing. There’s the video chat feature where you can go on your first virtual date and if you’re a woman you get to #makethefirstmove and start the conversation which I just love because it allows you to sort out the people you aren\'t interested in from the potential dating opportunities and we love to see that!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

If you’re ready to find out if you’re new date is quarantine material, #MakeTheFirstMove and download @bumble. #BumblePartner
