“…and I’m doing pretty hood in my pink polo…“ My best friend‘s birthday is days away and lately she has been obsessed with pink, so I decided to do a post dedicated to the poppy color (and to her, being it’s her color of the season and her birthday month!). I’m not a huge fan of wearing the color itself,…

I love the idea of a bed & breakfast although I have yet to stay in one. BnB’s can be luxurious but I  would choose to stay in one that has charm and eclectic character.  Lately, I’ve been obsessed with the idea of Airbnb. If you’re unfamiliar with the service, this is how  it works – a normal person like…

I will be the first to say, I used to despise Forever 21. My friends and co-workers would rock the cutest items; I ask where it’s from and get the same answer every time, “Forever 21”. *Insert stale face*. Every time I would step foot inside the fast retailer, I would leave empty handed. It took a trip to the…

“No bra with that blouse, it’s so necessary“ Yup, those are my actual bras all lined up in my drawer. What can I say, I worked in lingerie retail for over three years and growing up, my grandmother always taught me to match my underwear even if I’m the only one who can see them. With that being said, I…

“Get it right…get it right, get it tight“ I finally got around to deep cleaning my room. I spend so much time helping others organize and de-clutter their spaces that I never want to deal with my own.  It was an all-day process but so well worth it. I vacuumed, dusted, swept, and sanitized everything you can imagine. I got…

With the extremely bi-polar weather in New York, I have been doing nothing but daydreaming of water, sand, and sun. I’ve become pale as a ghost and I’m sure I’m lacking Vitamin D. I’ve been creating lists and following every travel Instagram account that puts me in a sunny land far, far away. So what better timing that YOOX and…

“Repair the past, Protect the future.” I was sent samples from the new skincare line DNAEGF Renewal (Thank you, Adrian!) created by Dr. Moy. The skincare line focuses on the science of skin aging, even as early as your 20s. There are certain products every age range should use to get the best results. Since I’m in my 20s, I…

The word girl is incorporated to show the happy-go-lucky aspect of black women (read: we aren’t all angry for no reason). I’m a bit of a CFBG myself –…

Photo via @marcjacobsintl This past Thursday evening, some friends and I attended a Marc Jacobs event sponsored by GQ and Ciroc featuring the artist Bäst, a street artist who’s style is a combination of collage and graffiti. The scene was lively, drinks were flowing, GQ mags were being passed, and the art was abundant. Immediately upon entering was a disco-eqsue massive triangle…

“All the fresh styles always start off as a good little hood thing” – Andre 3000  I love fashion but I love it even more when “new trends” aren’t really so new after all. Bomber jackets have always been a staple for me since my last year of elementary school, when I actually started to care what I looked like…
