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...

Creating Authentic Content

    Hello my loves, Today's blog post is all about being you, being different and creating authentic content. This is like a part 2 of my previous blog post ( How to blog for living 101). Again, I'm still new to blogging but I have learned so much and one of the things I have learned that has become easier for me now is to not be like others but myself. I believe we're so different and unique in our own way and we just have to believe it.   How to stand out from the crowd: I know, you must have heard that sentence so many times; "To be successful, you have to be different" but it's actually true. So here is how it...

How To Blog For Living 101

BLOGGING 101 Hello my love, happy Tuesday! Finally, the post that most of you have requested. "How to blog for living and how I started my blog". So let's get right to it. I started my blog a little over a year and a half ago and here is all the information I have learned and challenges I faced. First most important question; Is blogging for everyone? I will say no! It's really not for everyone because we're all different and have to do things that makes us happy. If you start a blog and you don't make the time to work on the blog or you just hate the ups and downs, it's not for you. Before anyone decides to start a blog,...

How I Got My Dream Body

Let's get right to the point, How did I get this body? To be honest, hard work and consistency. I know, that what they all say but many people don't really tell you the full story behind that amazing toned body so let me break mine down for you. How it all started: One day I woke up and looked at my body and I realized I was too thin and needed more muscles (that was about 5 years ago by the way). So I started to do my research and there were a lot of options out there, knowing me I wanted something that works fast and something that I will love. The first thing you will think about is the...
