We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiara BriAnn and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiara, what do you love most about your work?
Being a Media Personality allows me to connect with people all over the world. I love what I do, because I am able to express myself in my most raw form. I am simply just being me. What I love most about it most is touching the lives that so happened to scroll on my post and/or watch my videos. Being the source of inspiration, a good laugh or advice makes me feel good and it is very fulfilling when I get that type of feedback.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Tiara BriAnn. Most people remember me by my YouTube Channel tag line, “It’s Tiara BriAnn and dont you forget it!” I am a media personality and the creator of She Gotta Eat food blog on Instagram. I do enjoy hosting and curating events from time to time. What sets me apart from others is my genuine, down-to-earth spirit. I can walk in a room and amplify the energy from 0 to 100! My strong ability to connect with others is always recognized and reciprocated. People generally know me for having such a transparent, relatable and upbeat personality. I am most proud of the increase of consistency in my work. I believe that’s what got me to where I am now, because my work never goes unnoticed. People are beginning to acknowledge and recognize who I am and what i do. I met one of my Instagram followers for the first time in public and they said, “Aren’t you media personality, Tiara BriAnn?” Encounters like this inspire me to keep going. Getting to where I am now was not easy. I overcame my challenges by going with the flow and not fighting it. Being able to express myself without being fearful of what others may think. I learn as I go. I don’t have to be perfect to go after what I want, but I must be willing to work and learn along the way. Tiara BriAnn is a lifestyle brand. Reminding you of the things in life you should not forget. To live your life unapologetically and do what genuinely makes you happy. Spreading positivity and keeping it real is what i do! My YouTube channel includes vlogs, advice, travel, events, food, interviews and all the above. You can stay up to date with my food blog, @shegottaeat, on Instagram! I feature local restaurants, events, and travel. Also, I share my home cooked recipes as well as my vegan brand favorites.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First things first, we are getting a drink at Minero inside of Ponce City Market in Midtown, Atlanta. They have one of the best frozen margaritas in the city! If my best friend needs more than just a pick me up, Hudson Grille has $3 shooters EVERY DAY. You can’t beat that! Plus, they are open until 2am on the weekends. When it’s time to eat, I have a few spots in mind. Barcelona Wine Bar – Westside location is a favorite! They serve delicious Spain and Mediterranean inspired tapas, so you can order a little bit of everything. Needless to say, their service is outstanding! On Mondays, they sell 50% off wine bottles. Their “Make Your Own Mimosas” during brunch are the bomb! You definitely have to make a stop here. Another brunch spot favorites are Milk and Honey on the Southside and Homegrown in Grant Park. If we are in the mood for seafood, the Beetlecat, Optimist and Atlanta Fish Market is where i am heading to! When we want sushi, we’ll head to Wagaya or Ocean Wave by Harry and Sons. Finally, my best friend is ready to chill and relax. Of course I take her to the Atlanta Belt Line. It is connected to local restaurants, Ponce City Market and Piedmont Park. Little 5 Points has an artsy, hipster, community vibe. It is filled with retro and cultural clothing stores, restaurants, and a dope Metaphysical shop called Crystal Blue. Vickery Creek in Roswell has a beautiful water fall. Wednesday night at Cascade Skating Rink is adult night and we can definitely catch a groove! On the weekends, it’s time to dance and shake a little something! I might head to Escobar or FirstFridays. Bar hopping in Buckhead is my favorite past time. I do enjoy day parties and Cafe Circa’s rooftop is a good time! Like Glue Friday’s at Atlantis Lounge is always a vibe if you are into Reggae, Soca and Afro Beats. Last but not least, you can catch me at ANY food and drink festival here in Atlanta! The Atlanta Brunch Festival was the latest event I attended and quite an experience. Check out that footage on my Food Blog, @shegottaeat, on Instagram. The FULL VIDEO can be seen on my YouTube Channel, Tiara BriAnn.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shout out my family, close friends and sisters of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated. Their unconditional love and support are appreciated. No matter what crazy idea I have, they are right there behind me. WHATEVER and WHENEVER I am in need, I know they are one phone call away. Also, I greatly appreciate the people I have never met. The people who share, comment, subscribe, follow, and/or support my brand. All of the love is appreciated.
