New year, new month, and an evolving me! I thought this week would be the perfect time to get many of you who are the new to Ooh La La an opportunity to learn more about me, the woman behind the blog.
For others who have supported Ooh La La for years, thank you! And this is our time to get reacquainted. A lot has changed since I started this blog many moons ago.
Who’s the Woman Behind OohLaLaBlog?
Hi lovely people. I’m Jamiese Price. I currently live in Birmingham, AL, where I was born and raised. I’m a television news journalist. I’ve worked for news markets across Alabama and New York. I’m committed to sharing stories that impact communities of color. I attended Syracuse University (go Orange) and Tuskegee University ( TU-U Know)!
I’m a sister to two amazing humans. I have a younger brother who lives in Charlotte and is doing his thing and my older sister lives in Birmingham, where she can teach how to hustle like nobody’s business!
I’m a dog mom, to a shih tzu mix named Marley. Marley recently had puppies and I plan to keep one of the precious babies. My beloved Lizzy Lou ran away in 2015.
I’m a mentor to under privileged girls and young journalists looking to find their way.
What are Some of Your Favorite Things:
I love coffee. I’m crazy about hot tamale candy. Seriously, it’s equivalent to a cigarette to me. New shoes and new hair makes me smile. I can’t leave Walgreens without buying lipstick or a pair of eyelashes. If we’re going to dinner, I’m suggesting a restaurant where I can get tacos or chicken. We can watch Love Jones or Paid In Full for movie night.
I’m always cold.I love summer nights, concerts, and laughing to it hurts.
I listen to trap music , 90’s R&B , and gospel.

I hope this gives you a better idea of who I am and the type of content you’ll receive here. I started off as a celebrity fashion blogger and found some success, but changed paths to focus on personal style and lifestyle blogging. It gave me an opportunity to discuss an area I know best, “Me.” Plus, it was an outlet for this TV Journalist who’s days consisted of covering crime, corruption, and high stressful events.
