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...

New York Days

Dear NYC, I can't believe I'm wearing shorts in the spring or do I always feel cold because I am of Africa? Ok seriously, last week was busy and fun. A few months ago, I got invited to be a panelist on the event called Creative and Cultivate. I know right, I was so honored to be speaking at this big women empowerment event and I couldn't wait for the day to come. Also, I love NYC when it's not winter. I'm more of a summer girl and my biggest fear is feeling uncomfortable in the cold so it worked just perfectly for me. We got to NYC on Tuesday for Create and Cultivate, we explored the city before my big day which was on Saturday....

Chasing The Sun With Becca Cosmetics

Since I became a blogger a year and half ago, I always wanted to work with great brands and be apart of great awareness. I wanted to help people and honestly review products and show people how to use them and tell honestly if that product is great or not. All my blogging life I have dreamt of brands like BECCA cosmetics but I didn't even know much about the brand till I got contacted by BECCA to join the team on the #beccascape trip in beautiful Palm Springs. You guys, this was my first big brand invite on a travel trip and It was a dream come true. I was so excited you have no idea. I was told that the...

Mexico Part 1

Dear Mexico, I really don't want to go back to LA, not quite yet.  We took a trip to Mexico for Raffael's birthday and I got to say, it was a great last minute decision. I wanted a peaceful place after staying in the city for a while so we stayed in beautiful Tulum. The city is so beautiful and there is much to see and do so everyday we would plan a trip to see Cenotes, beaches, Tulum Mayan temple and eat at some of the great restaurants in the area. Mostly importantly, a relax day by the beach and walking up to birds and see the sunlights through our windows.  Posada Margherita Beach. At the Tulum Ruins Everything was going to prefect till...

Life In A Tree House

Since it's Thursday, let me throw it back a little to our Mexico trip. I have received so many questions about these images on Instagram so I decided to do a Mexico, Azulik throwback post. I know you guys have seen the resort all over Instagram, well that how I got to know of the resort as well and decided to stay there. It's truly the most beautiful Resort I have ever stayed at so far and I wasn't disappointed at all. Azulik Resort is a luxurious eco-friendly with organic architecture, which means it's impossible not to rest here with your loved one. Also there is no electricity, which means there are no lights, so at night, they light up your room with candles...

New York Fashion Week, One In 3 Looks.

Lets just say what a great experience it was being apart of New York Fashion Week especially when you have others to share it with. When I think of fashion week, I think of a lot of cool and amazing outfits, shows and changes. That's just what it's about. I love NYC, it's so beautiful, lots of great locations and great people. It was cold, snowing, raining and I took me awhile to get used to it. Well I didn't get used it at all but for the sake of fun and shows I was just fine with my frozen feet ;-) Since it was my very first fashion week, I wanted to learn how it works and what it was...

Interview on Good Morning America

Wow! Thank you so much Good Morning America for having me speak about diversity, and for helping spread this message. It was an honor speaking on the show today. The Black Mirror project have been just a great experience and we're just so happy that you guys are on this road to fright for diversity with us. We had no idea that this would viral around the world! This takes me back to when Raffael and I first spoke about the  Black Mirror Project , when we spoke about shooting these images It sounded like an impossible feat to pull off. I asked him: "You want me to go against all the big brands and top models in the world? That's...

Tower Bridge, London

I remember waking up at 8:00 in the morning to make it to the Tower Bridge in London before it gets flooded with tourists. The Tower Bridge is so popular in London that by 8:30-9:00am, there are so many people on the bridge to get the same feelings I had when I was on it. Wow, what a beautiful bridge, it's like it was only built for the Queen of England but we're on it as well. I'm sure you get the picture, so I advise getting there early in the morning to avoid a lot of people. Oh how I miss London already. I started my days at 7:00-8:00 every morning for a week in London because there are just so much to do in one day. The...
