I’m Raynata (or just Ray).
Memphis native, youngest sibling, creative, and culture consumer among other things.
By day, for ten hours or less, I work in a typical office environment. By night, I practice the art of staying up far past a reasonable time for someone who has to work the next day, delve into at home tea mixology (2 sleepy time tea bags, one Raspberry, 1 shot of OJ and some lemonade drink mix will cure all that ails you), mentally cleaning up my apartment (washing dishes in my mind as I type this), and lying perpendicular across my bed to scroll social media for
5 minutes 10 minutes
In the spaces in between, I write, blog, photograph, decorate, color, paint, read, revamp, watch, listen, organize, visit, muse, and more.
The Urban Curio is the collected trinkets and baubles of my life outside of my 9-to-5. It’s the virtual shelves on which I share my created and consumed curiosities, and those of others.
