So here is my question to you: What is LA to YOU?   special thanks to Cary Crenier. Check out his work at MisterSunset.com. Thanks For Watching....

Break Yourself: Video #2

It have been a long week with none stop school, from 2 exams to presenting a group project to writing a research paper and more haha. I'm so glad that it's over for now and I had the chance to put together an outfit of the week for you guys. To be honest, I love making videos now, I used to hate it. Seeing myself in a video was kind of scary. I think it's because I haven't done anything like this before but after a few times, you get used to it and it becomes easier. Sometimes, these things are just all in our heads and we just have to get over fears to find love in what we...

The Laura Basci

Todays fashion world is dominated by big names: Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, etc. We are used to seeing them everywhere in magazines, on billboards and on television. Their clothes are also very expensive and most of us can rarely afford them. However it is rare that we actually get to meet them personally and therefore will fully understand their thoughts behind each designs and what inspires them to create such designs. Now I was lucky enough to actually have the opportunity to get to know a new and upcoming designer up close and get to understand the process behind creating amazing clothes. Laura Basci inspires me through her designs. Getting to know her made a big impression on me and it...

The Happy Pants

Happy great start of the week everyone. I posted a Instastory on Sunday of going to Church the first time in 8 year and a lot of you wrote me back asking why and the question went on. I just wanted to address it in this post. I grew up a Christian and trust me, I'm still very much Christian, nothing changed. Just the going to church part did. So growing up, I was told I have to go to church every Sunday, sing in the choir, attend bible studies and all other church activities. So ever day and every Sunday I did that and I wasn't sure if I wanted to. I struggled with the church growing up and also have to deal with attending different...

Yoga For Self Love

You guys have asked what I do or eat to stay so fit in this busy life of mine. So today I wanted to share a little bit of my health concepts with you. To be honest, I didn't always care about what I would eat or work out. However not till five years ago I got introduced to eating healthy and working out. I started by doing a lot of research on food and workouts to help me stay fit and healthy. I stated hiking and running in the neighborhood for a start. I love running, I used to play soccer in high school as a forward so I will run for 5-6 miles. It was also a good...

Dark Romance

Included here is a FREE Giveaway of the dress seen in the pictures below. Follow the article to the end for instructions how to win the dress. I felt totally sexy walking around in this black dress in Miami. I'm starting to see myself as the sexy kind after so many years of not seeing myself as one.  Growing up in West Africa, I knew nothing about dressing up sexy or feeling sexy. I would always look at other girls or my friends  and wonder why I was so different. To be honest I looked nothing like anyone in my class, I think not seeing myself as a pretty girl played a big part in it. Also I needed someone to...

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 year because of how clean the beach is and the water was at perfect temperature . This time around I wanted to try new things and meet new people. So I had the chance to meet some great people who are very inspiring entrepreneurs. There's nothing more fun than meeting new friends that you get along...

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Time does fly, doesn't it?. I can't believe it's Christmas already, the most beautiful time of the year. I'm so excited for a break from school and work, it's time for family time!!. It have been very busy for me. I usually go home like every year to spend the holidays  with my family but I have my cousins over this time. It's so exciting having family over in LA for a visit. They are seeing all my favorite spots in the city and I take them to the beach in December which they are not used to. I miss my family so much and not having a family in LA can get lonely at times. We have been all over...

Layering With Leather

  Happy Tuesday my loves. I can't believe it is almost Christmas and I am very excited. Two of my cousins will come visit me in LA and I can't wait to spend some time with them. So many ideas of what you are going to do in running though my head as I'm writing. Christmas in many places also means it is getting cold. It reminds me a lot of Vancouver that I visited recently. The weather got chilly but I still wanted to dress stylish. This is the outfit I came up with and that seemed to be a good fit. Living in LA made me not well prepared at all for such kind of weather. LA is most of...

Simple But Elegant

Happy Monday everyone. I can't believe winter is already coming fast towards us. I decided to enjoy my last few days of summer/fall in LA. Los Angeles is a busy city. Wherever you look a lot is going on.  Being busy with school and work I felt I started to neglect working out, which I love a lot and is very important to my energy and feeling good about myself. It is a big challenge to be able to go to your regular workout classes. I heard tough that there was this amazing way of being able to go to many different workout places all for the cost of around $100. It sounded too good to be true. Usually most...
