Your source for better, best and Bougie in New Orleans and beyond.

Who is Nola Bougie?


I'm a wife, the mother of a threenager and pharmacist who loves Rose', spa days and some good tea, but don't get it confused, I still jump out of my seat when I hear "Cash Money Records taking over for the '99 and 2000." 

What's it all about?


NOLA Bougie is the source for all things classy and cultured in New Orleans. We have a 3-tiered platform to inspire women to not only live their best life, but to do so by being the best possible version of themselves that they can be.  

The three pillars of the NOLA Bougie Movement are:

1. Prioritizing Self-Care

2. Promoting Progressive Living and Positive Growth

3. Producing Events and Empowering Opportunities for All Women

NOLA Bougie strives to encourage women to view self-care as an act of love. Self-care is not optional and should not be viewed as selfish. It is a vital part of our health and success as women. 

NOLA Bougie strives to change the definition of the word "bougie".  It is not a negative thing to want or aspire to have more or the best in life.  On the contrary, it is our right as women to seek a life that is beyond mediocrity. 

NOLA Bougie strives to help women of all backgrounds recognize their value in spite of their circumstances.  You do not have to be rich in finance to be bougie...just rich in spirit. 

Are you a woman of class and culture?  You love high fashion but also love Secondline Sunday?  You love a nice steakhouse but you also love a 3 AM po-boy from Gene's?  You love champagne but nothing soothes your soul quite like a NOLA daiquiri?  If this sounds familiar to you - you might be NOLA Bougie. Join the movement.
