I just love my African printed skirt my baby sis got me for Christmas! I have always wanted my own African printed outfit and over the years I have worn my mom's old pieces. Although this is not true Kente cloth material, I love the print! I actually have some cloth that I am waiting... Continue Reading →


Happy Holidays

Saturday night brought lots of fun celebrating Christmas with my Qodesh church family in Manassas. We danced, we ate, played games and danced some more (I will be perfecting my dance moves before posting that video 😆). There is truly no party like an African party and I can't wait to do it again! Oversized... Continue Reading →

`Tis the Season

I hate the cold, but love the cute fashions for this time of season! I definitely think that clothes in the fall and winter are more stylish and are different then any other season. I like to think that because it's cold, designers have to be creative in looks so we are not just wearing... Continue Reading →


Night Out

The other night my husband and I celebrated our friends birthday out at dinner. Of course since it's also been a while since "date night" (I can't even remember the last time we were kid free), I had to do it up! The night of the dinner I was going through my closet trying to...

Is it Fall Yet?

I don't know about you, but for me, there were several days in the past few weeks in which felt like Fall like temperatures.  Even though Fall doesn't officially kick off until September 22nd, it's not too early to begin transitioning your pieces (especially if you are someone like me who is always cold 😉)....

What’s Your Colors?

Every since my hair has been natural, I have loved how earth toned colors have complimented my look! I believe that anyone can wear any color, it's just a matter of shade and placement. I have personally found colors like bronze, forest green, cream, burgundy, mustard yellow and burnt orange have been my best colors... Continue Reading →
