Embracing My African Roots at the 11th Annual ACANA Festival 🇱🇷✊🏿

It is my lifelong dream to one day visit my father’s homeland of Liberia, West Africa. A ‘sh*thole country’ in the eyes of some, but beloved by many. Until the day comes, I look forward to learning as much as I can about African culture by attending events like the ACANA Festival. For the past […]

Rompers: The Perfect Short Girl-Friendly Outfit!💁🏾‍💃🏾

If you’re a height-challenged girl like myself (5ft), then you know how frustrating it can be to find clothes that fit our petite stature. I can’t tell you how many jeans fit perfectly at the hips but have to be tucked under at the ankles or the amount of dress pants that drag at the […]

Sailing Through NYC in a Derek Heart Duster ⛵🗽

When it comes to affordable fashion, honey, there ain’t no shame in my game! I take pride in being able to dress well on a dime. The earliest display of this was my eight year old self fishing through my mother’s trash to retrieve the black handbag she had discarded while doing some spring cleaning. […]

Fashion Fridays: A Few Fashionable Finds

A graphic tee is a great way to make a statement without actually having to utter a single word. It speaks for itself. It expresses your mood, sense of humor, cultural pride, and political views. A graphic tee can also be a bit of an esteem booster like the one I recently purchased. This criss […]

Sole Searching: Spring Footwear 

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not much of a sneaker girl. I currently own 2 pairs of sneakers (sad, I know), one pair of pink pumas and a floral pair of canvas sneakers. Though I admire those who can rock a pair of sneakers and still look fly, I’m much more of a flats […]

Summer Dress Haul!!!

Confession. This is my first official “haul” so I’m not too sure how many items are required to be considered a haul but anyway… My birthday was last Friday and no I’m not done celebrating! Today, I was shopping for a dress to wear to dinner. I had my heart set on a black, strapless dress from […]
