11 Louisiana Girls you should be Following

11 Louisiana Girls you should be Following

It’s been said that the very best girls come from Louisiana. I’m sure a girl from Louisiana said it but, that doesn't make it untrue. In fact many of the best things come from Louisiana including food, music, art and so much more. “If you ain't got a Louisiana girl better get you one.” In the mean while you can just follow some of Louisiana's best. Here are 11 of my favorite Louisiana girls and with time they’ll be your favorites too. It was so hard to compile this list because there are so many dope women here in LA. I would be typing for years to include every single one, but for the sake of this blogpost I wanted to keep it short, but valuable. Feeding our minds constantly and filling up with positivity is neccessary for our well being. Not only do these ladies portray style and grace but their content will feed your mind and soul. Without further adieu I give you, 11 Louisiana girls you should be following:
