My first weekend back in the east bay and I was welcomed with the HEAT, baby! When Summer rolls around, I gear up my closet by putting the turtle necks and knits way in the back and give all of my Summer clothes a chance. Luckily, the weather here can go from Summer-to-Winter feeling real [...]

Phew! It's been a whirlwind of events lately! The month of May was a complete blur to me, as I had a month-long stint of work in New York that I simply could not bail on. Having so much time to reflect on my own, living in a hotel and out of a suit case, [...]

Is it Summer yet? Even after being here for two years, I am still a Floridian after all! We've been having some interesting weather here in the East Bay.

I've been dreading this post because it forces me to face a reality that I simply am not ready to face. And things are about to get a little sentimental up in here so grab a tissue. I might've mentioned that not too long ago our great friend, my homie, and cool kid on the [...]
