Say Hello To New Healthy Hair

  Like they say "The most important thing a woman can have(next to talent, of course) is her beautiful, healthy hair." I couldn't agree more. Our hair is our identity. Over the years, I have struggled with my hair to the point where I woke up one morning and went to the salon and had to cut it all off. Of course, I cried after the cut, I couldn't do it anymore with all the relaxing and breakage. This hair of mine has been through way too much - from the cut, to the colors to the extensions and more. I give up on my hair and turn it over to one of my best friends (she's a hairstylist) to help taking care of it.   As a black woman, it's hard to find products...

How To Stay Fit

How do I stay fit? This is a question I get all the time. I believe staying healthy and fit is a lifestyle choice. So I workout six times a week and rest on Monday or Friday depending on how I feel. Some weeks, I workout everyday and eat very healthy. I mixed up my workout as I get bored doing one type of workout routine for a while except yoga. My workout routine also depends on my school schedules. Since every semester is a different schedule, the same goes for my workout routine.       Here is a break down of "How To Stay Fit." 1. Cardio: You have to put cardio in your workout routines. It will help you burn some fat fast and raise your heart...

Black Is Beautiful

Black is beautiful! Yes!  and we don't even have to say this that much because we're seeing all the many changes that's going on. If you don't know what I'm talking about it is ok, let me  break it down for you. This morning one of my amazing followers on Instagram sent me a message pointing out the new Calvin Klein campaign with the winners for the Oscar best picture (Moonlight). He was so excited to see the diversity in the campaign and so was I. I got to say, I was in tears that night watching all my people on the red carpet and on stage. That speech from  Viola Davis was so touching, she's always been my role model and...

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...

30 Minutes Home Workout

Today's blog post is all about taking care of your body without breaking the bank. As you all know I do not have a person trainer with me everyday of my life. To be honest, I thought of the trainer and tried to get one but it can be quite expensive and doesn't always work with my schedule. So I learned how to workout and tone by body all by myself. The best part is, you don't aways have to go to the gym to be fit, you can do it at home. All you need are workout tools. If you visit my apartment you'll find a lot of them because we invested in them over the years. They come...

5 Things You Don’t Know About Deddeh

Todays blog post is going to be all about me.. I have gotten so many questions about what I do, where I'm from, how I get through my days,  etc. so I decided to tell you all a little about me and what inspires me everyday. 5 things you don't know about me.  1. I didn't not grow up in Liberia:  I was born in Liberia, West Africa but I didn't grow up there. In fact, I only remember being in my country once, for Christmas when I was 7 or 8 years old, I think. I wish I had spent more time back home but I was too busy with catholic school which I asked my dad to attend when I was a...

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...
