How to get out of your comfort zone!

Hi all, For all those who know me well, I am through and through a city girl. Moving to Vancouver 6 years ago was rather hard for me. I find that everything closes really early here, there isn’t really a night life scene, it  is extremely quiet all the time, the non-stop rain is super…

A reminder to myself

It is really hard to feel “on top of the world” all the time. There are days where everything just goes wrong, sometimes you are just not feeling the most energetic, perhaps some unforeseen changes occurred which upset all your plans- the list goes on. Point is, despite the reason, life will never be perfect…

Living in the Lap of Luxury at Seattle’s Loews Hotel 1000

This post was originally written by me and published on Viva Lifestyle and Travel and republished with permission. The moment my taxi swerves to the side of the road to let me out, I know I’m in for a treat. I’m a mere 20-minutes away from Tacoma International Airport, and yet I’m standing in the heart of downtown Seattle,…

6 Things Every Brown Girl Does When She’s Bored

This post was originally written by me and published on The Browngirl Magazine and republished with permission. Boredom is inevitable. We all get bored at one time or another and there are times that you’re SO bored, you decide to just take a nap. But other than napping, we as Brown Girls, know that there…

Summer Makeup Essentials

Hi fam! So, during the summer I like my skin looking especially bronzed and glowing. There are various ways I try and make this happen. Other than drinking tons of water, and spending some some extra time in the sun(with sunscreen on)- using the right makeup really helps me achieve that sun-kissed look. Here are…

Soft Skin Secrets

Hi babes, So Sundays, as we all know, exist for some rest and recreation time! Other than lazing around, I make sure to take some time out to do some beauty and health care routines. Something I really prioritize is skin care. I have extremely sensitive skin, which burns super easy and gets really dry if…

Leather Lookbook!

Hi ladies, So, I have been wearing a lot of (faux) leather lately. For multiple reasons: it looks great, it is perfect for the slightly warmer weather, and it matches with pretty much everything! In my opinion, everyone should own four of these staple leather pieces: 1. David Lernery‘s “Draped Short”, leather shorts. 2. H&M‘s “Short Skirt”, leather…

Anxiety No More!

Happy humpday loves! Life gets busy. Busy and crazy. I wish I had more hours in a day, I always feel as though I need more time to do everything I need to do. What ends up happening is I stay up until 4 am getting everything done, and then I am cranky the whole…

Get Nailed!

Hi beauties, Happy Thursday! Today’s topic will be NAILS! Yay! So, I have always had weak nails which is really frustrating because I keep trying to grow them out- but before they can even get there, they break. I tried getting acrylic nail extensions a bunch of times, but they just weakened my nails some more,…

Au Revoir with Athena

Hi beautiful people! So, here is the final look of my recent series! I want to thank everyone for all the love that I got throughout this collaboration. I  put a lot of thought into each of my posts, as did the team I worked with to create these looks. It always feels good to have…

Contour with Contoured Studios!

Hola! Honestly, I’d be lying if I said I was feeling great today. Mondays are especially harder after a long weekend. After writhing in absolute freedom the last 3 days, my brain is still taking some time to restart its creative juice flow. Until then, I am going to leave you guys this inspirational interview…

Call Me Cray!

YO! So basically, yesterday I was just not feeling life. I was in the most terrible moods and it was not fun, to say the least. It did also happen to be that time of the month, which I must admit probably played a factor in my volatile emotions. However, thinking about how “it must…
