Hi Loves! Happy Hump Day! Guess what? We made it half way through the week, and I feel great! How about you? Can I share something with you? I did a collaboration with Jewelry designer Malyia McNaughton of Made By Maylia for a pilot that’s in the works, fingers crossed.

Hi loves! Happy Sunday! I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend. Sunday is by far my favorite day of the week, it’s a chill out day for me to refresh my mind from the week prior and to prepare for the new week ahead with a new mindset. My mantra is new day, new beginnings, new blessings. Saturday I went to the Legendary Damon, Ty Hunter & Claire Sulmers No Basics Brunch at the Corner Social in Harlem. As always it was an epic day spent with unlimited mimosa’s, friends and A LOT of Laughter; lets just say…

Monday I attended The Beauties & Brains Behind the brands III event presented by In Her Shoes & Essence magazine. A Fabulous and fun event honoring 25 fly female entrepreneurs. The room was filled with a lot of major female game changers.

The location was a beautiful space in Dumbo, Brooklyn. where we were able to drink, eat, shop…

Hi Loves! So here is my super late, but super cute outfit post of what I wore to my cousins wedding last Sunday. I have a thing for dresses or skirts that have a good side split. It’s something about them that screams sexy in an understated way. I particularly love this dress not only for the obvious side split, but for the price. I went into H&M last minute and scooped up all the long flowy maxi dresses that I can find and made a bee line to the dressing room. I tried one dress and hated the way…

Hello March! It’s so good to see you, please bring us some warmth and sunshine soon. I am still on my vacation high, can you believe that? I am just getting off cloud nine and back into the flow of things. Before I move forward I want to share with you some fun I had while away in St. Lucia.

Yay! it’s my Birthday! I turn 28 today! Wow, I am getting up there in age. Nonetheless, I am truly blessed to see another year. I believe that every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new. I am coming to terms with my age, I’ve accepted the fact that getting older is a beautiful thing and kind of a big deal. I have learned a lot and I am still learning about the woman I am becoming. I am grateful for all the lessons that I’ve learned, the knowledge I’ve acquired and the experiences that have…

I spent the weekend in Connecticut with my best friend, and it was nice to spend some much needed quality time together just laughing, reconnecting, and having a good time. It made me fall in love all over again with our friendship, and I realized how much I appreciate her. I think we should always take the time out to simply cherish our best friends and let them know what they truly mean to us. And I couldn’t end this weekend without snapping some flicks, photos courtesy of my best friend. Dress: Uniqlo, Necklace/ Bracelets: Aldo Shoes: Aldo, customized by…
