Concrete Jungle

When I came up with the concept for this look and put it together, I thought to myself where in the city should I shoot this. Being a resident of New York for two years now and there’s still so much I have yet to explore. It then […]

Only Remind Them Once

I remember reading an article from Forbes during the summer of 2015, stating that black women were the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs. At the time I was in the process of packing all my belongings, heading to NYC. This article helped stir up a bunch of emotions inside […]

All Black Everything

  I know it’s summertime, which means vibrant colors should be overflowing in your wardrobe, but there’s something about an all black everything look that will never go wrong to me. Similar to red, whenever I wear black I feel even more sexy, powerful, and strong than I […]

Hey! Hey! Hey

Hey! Hey! Hey! Just a little fun I had with my sister before I went out. You know I come alive in the nighttime. Once again, I’m rocking the two buns! I just love wearing my hair like this for some reason; it makes me feel so youthful. […]

Sapphira Martin, creator of SassBoxx (subscription box service), invited me to her BlackGirlMagic picnic at Prospect Park! How could I possibly turn down that invitation?

Sorry MAC, Tarte It Is!

I remember back in 2014, working at Bloomingdales, which was when everybody’s eyebrows started to be “on fleek”. I didn’t then and still don’t know a ton about make-up. I have two make-up bags full of lipsticks, but concealer, foundation, or anything like that wasn’t and still isn’t […]


Last night I came across this photo on Facebook. I’m not sure who these little girls are but this picture made me so happy for so many reasons; let me explain. When I was growing up, my friends and I were all users of that creamy crack (perm). […]


 If you know me personally, you know I haven’t been in the best of moods lately. After having an hour-long conversation with my grandmom, I started to feel better. For the past week, a spark of inspiration has grown inside of me, pushing me to go harder with […]

Curl Pattern Check

I love being natural! I remember days when I was stressed because I was way overdue for perm. Now, I couldn’t imagine EVER putting a perm in me or my future daughters hair. Black women’s hair is so versatile, it’s not even funny. I can do so much […]

Melanin Mondayyy

     Happy Mondayyy! I love being a black woman; my melanin is on fleek today. Already halfway through the day and I’m still feeling great. It may have a lot to do with the S’mores Frappicuino from Starbucks but that’s okay. Continue to be productive throughout your […]
