Yoga To Empower

I don’t know where to start because I’m so over joyed! I think I will start by saying thanks to my amazing Under Armour Women team for all the love and support they have given me. If you’re new to my blog, I became a brand ambassador for Under Armour Women about five months ago and since then, my life has changed so much, in a very good way I want to add.. I have loved the brand for a very long time, from the way they give back to society, the amazing team, the very comfortable clothing and most importantly, the voice they give to people like me. So when I was asked to join and become an ambassador,...

Get Ready With Me

 When it comes to makeup, the first thing I think about is, long lasting foundation with great benefits that's clean and evens my skin tone,  but it is really difficult to find the right shade for my skin. To be honest, I do not have an even skin tone which I have come to understand that a lot of women of color have the same problem. Did you know, you have an under tone? Trust me, I had no idea what that meant for the longest time and I would buy foundation that did not complement my skin at all. Just because you have a darker complexion doesn’t mean you’ll be able to wear dark shades that often have a golden undertone....

What To Wear For Fall

    Fall, is one of my favorite seasons, not only does it still feel like summer but the fall collections of clothing are quite exciting. The colors are bold, beautiful and it brings your closet to life. This fall, red and burgundy are the trendy colors and these are colors that work on all skin tones and can be worn at anytime of the day. My favorite fall trend is 70s Plaid. When you hear plaid, you typically think of '90s grunge. But this fall is all about the bright plaid from the '70s and I'm loving it. I already owned a couple a plaid pieces and hopefully I get to wear them at fashion week. This trend is so fun...

How to achieve perfect skin with SK-II

Hello my loves, I'm so excited to be talking about all things skin care today because if you really know me, you will know that I usually wear little makeup and try my best to take good care of my skin. I have to be honest, my skin these few months has not been doing so well. Our skin gets so stressed from all the work, travels and what we put in our body. I started to get breakouts I never had before and I was really worried about my skin plus I have quite oily skin. My focus for this summer was to start taking good care of my skin to go makeup free on my Bali summer vacation and my...

Self-Portrait

It has been so long since I spent 3 weeks at home and I got to say, it feels so good. Don't get me wrong, I'm so lucky and grateful for all the traveling opportunities lately and I love traveling but sometimes, home is enough. I'm talking about taking a break from living in your suitcases and seeing friends. I have some fun and exciting trips coming up this weekend so I decided to take a break and show myself some love before getting on the road again. You know, sometimes we take advantage of our friends and don't realize the important parts they play in our lives. I don't have that many friends but the ones that I have now,...

The Feminine Style

Happy August my loves, I'm always so excited for a new month. I don't know why but it seem like a new month brings new adventures for me. Before this month I did a cleanup in my closet and got rid of half my things, I was able to donate it but I thought it was time. When Raffael and I moved together, for some reason we got so busy with life and I forgot to unpack some of my clothes. Two years later, I realized they were still in the boxes so it was time to say goodbye to the things I haven't touched and time to bring in new clothes. It feels so good to have some space again,...

Confident In Style

Blogging 103   Today's blog post is all about building that confidence to succeed in the modeling, blogging world and everyday life. I decided to write about confidence because so many of you guys have asked me how I got the confidence to put myself out there with my Black Mirror project and  blogging. So I'm here to share how I did it. Honestly, my confidence comes from me sitting down and having a talk with myself. It sounds weird but sometimes in life you just have to do it. I wasn't always the most confident girl in life, in fact, the people that I grew up with back home in Africa are so surprised now, that I actually have a voice...

Summer Sunshine

Finally I can say I'm on vacation, well actually a family vacation for almost two weeks. I have been looking forward to just spending some time this summer with my family especially my dad and brother whom I haven't seen twice in 10 years. Not that they care much about being away for 10 years but I do and it's hard to see them while living Los Angeles. I miss my family so much and I'm glad to be home, I glad to be surrounded by people that are like me and speak my language. It is so peaceful this way. Living away in LA without my family can be very hard at times especially with beings busy a lot. On the...

Less Is Beautiful

Happy Sunday guys and hope you all are having a great weekend. I thought I'd write a quick Sunday skincare post because I have been getting so many questions on what I put on my skin that gives me so much glow. It's save to say that I don't like wearing too much makeup and I just love being makeup free if I can all day. So here's how to protect your skin from the sun and wear less makeup. Video coming soon. If you have been following me on Instagram, you probably have seen my Instagram stories about my Purlisse skincare. I got introduced to Purlisse less than a year ago and I have been using it ever since. From my favorite Blue Lotus treatment...
