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 [...]

The Eiffel Tower

•••
I remember as a child I was dreaming and wishing to go to Paris just to see the Eiffel Tower. When you are a kid in Africa you don't have too many choices. Traveling and exploring the world seems a distant dream, but I always kept my head up high as my hopes. I didn't know if I would ever make it to Paris at all, but I just knew someday I will get a chance[...]

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 bu[...]

The Streets Of London

•••
It have been a wonderful and surprising week in London. I mean, I still can't believe am here. This outfit is from my second day in London and we're on our way to meet up with some friends. I decided to walk around Notting Hill before heading out and I got to tell you, it's a must see area in London. In fact it's my favorite neighborhood, the homes are so [...]

The Dashiki

•••
A few weeks ago after my parents got married, my  family and I were walking down the street of Indianapolis going to our car all dressed up in our African outfits that my mom friend made for us. I was wearing this beautiful and colorful skirt suit. For my none African friends, we call this traditional style Dashiki. It's a very popular design in the Africa[...]

Hot Day In The Cactus Garden

•••
   Our time in Palm Springs was so amazing. After almost 3 weeks with the family I was ready for a getaway with my friends, one of my girl friends graduated and we had to celebrate. So we all decided to go to Palm Springs for a relaxing time instead of big party. It was over 100 degrees farhrenheit, so hot at some point I could feel my skin burnin[...]

Off The shoulder At The Getty

•••
Guys, I'm so excited!! I'm going home today to visit my family, especially my father whom I haven't seen in almost 9 years. I remember the last time I saw my dad, I was a teenager saying bye to my father and going out into the world without my best friend. Coming to America is a big deal for a lot Africans, it was a dream come true for me. I thought I [...]

Where Are You Now?

•••
Sometimes it takes getting into your car and driving far away from everything to regain yourself. That's about what I did. A week before my final exams, I was freaking out. Too much stress for me and I felt I was loosing myself. Funny right? But I actually felt that way. So Raffael (boyfriend) and I decided to take a 5 days road trip out of LA to relax[...]

For the Mind Body And Soul

•••
I have been asked so many times how I survive  my lifestyle. Work, school, blog, yoga and do I even sleep. To be honest, it's not easy. It's a lot of work, which includes staying up late sometime. When it comes to me sleeping over eight hours, I would say everyone is different, some people are just fine with sleeping less and some are not. If I sleep over [...]

•••
They say you never go wrong with black and I say you never go wrong with a black jumpsuit. Thanks to Laura Basci for this beautiful and comfortable jumpsuit. Isn't it lovely? Over the weekend after a long week of exams and school struggle, I had the chance to take a break from everything and just breathe again. When I say breathe, I mean take a break to ste[...]

Walls Of Inspiration

•••
  I started the New Year with a little visit to Miami which happen to be one of my favorite places in the States. Miami is full of beautiful beaches and great people and everyone is free spirits. I remember last year when I visited, I spent most of my time discovering all the beautiful beaches and restaurants. I really enjoy being on South beach last[...]

The Golden Globes

•••
As a teenager I remember waiting days just to watch a movie award show, which made me wonder how, would it be to experience it, but you don’t assume that might ever happen. Last year was my lucky year and I got the chance to attend the 72nd Golden Globes. Here is how it all went down. What really happens at the Golden Globes? When you drive towards [...]

Adventures in New York

•••
On of my favorite cities is New York. I recently got the chance again to visit this great city.  As much as it can be fun to be living in LA with the beaches and sun all the time, I have to admit being in a high paced placed like the big apple is very fascinating. Every time I visit the city there is so much more and new stuff to see that you will never ever[...]

Oh Canada

Happy Wednesday everyone, Traveling from Los Angeles to Canada was an amazing experience. It was my first time in Canada, in fact it was my first time outside of the US since I moved here eight years ago. I was excited and ready to take this trip. We stayed in downtown Vancouver in a beautiful apartment with an amazing view just down the street from all the [...]
