Oh shit. So you started a blog or small online business and you're thinking to yourself, "What did I get myself into?!" It's terrifying. A few years ago, (when I started this blog) I imagined myself blogging every other month or so. Casually uploading a photo of an outfit and imagined it getting 10,000 views [...]

Life Update: I’m home

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, [...]

Whatttt?! We brought back out Q&A sessions - and this time we recorded it! I am so glad #landofries was up for the challenge. He wanted this video to be DONE and over with because he hates being in front of the camera but I on the other hand just enjoyed every bit of it. [...]

This year has truly been an amazing one! Getting to have a little corner of the internet where I get to write up my thoughts on style, beauty and inspiration is a true and natural hobby of mine. I have loved interacting with you on social media and through comments on this blog. Your thoughts [...]

#MondayMuse: Nailah Ali of The Moda Intersection

I had the chance of meeting Nailah (a fashion blogger and creative marketer living in Detroit) in NYFW this year and have followed her through social media ever since. I watched closely as she turned her hustle into a real work of art. Merely months after NYFW, Nailah kicked life in the ass by making [...]

NYFW Recap: Plunged

By this time of my trip, I was fully embracing all that NYFW had to offer and was learning more and more as the days went on. I'd mentioned that I'll be breaking up my tips into segments and so far we've talked about New York Fashion week and what it really takes to be [...]

This year I am so excited to attend New York Fashion Week for the first time. I have always dreamed of the runways, the designs, the chaos and for the first time in my life I completely pulled the trigger on NYFW without even a glimpse of hope or security net to catch me. I [...]

A Letter to #LandoFries

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:22+00:00 July 16th, 2015|Advice|

What can I possibly say that hasn't already been said? "My love for you runs deeper than the ocean!" "Be here for you through thick and thin!" "You're the best thing that's ever happened to me!" And while all of that still holds true, I'm left with the thoughts of our future together and the [...]

Oasis Sens Resort Review

Traveling to Mexico has to be one of the most invigorating trips we’ve ever taken. For me, mostly because every time I’ve ever been in Mexico it has always been to visit family. I never fully got to do the “tourist” thing and venture off on on my own. I was always really young, so [...]
