Self Love: The Unintentional Way

Hey Beautiful People! Happy Saturday — I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and making the best of their "free time." I would come on here and talk about everything that I've been dealing with, trying to get back on the good foot, keeping my head afloat and locating that motivation I had before the …

My Inner Cookie Lyons at Nana’s Funeral

Hey Beautiful People! All weekend I have been thinking about how to approach this blog post and I still haven't figured it out. I guess its because I'm still processing what this post means and I don't think I am ready to come to terms with everything that is. Last week my grandmother (mostly known …

The Real You

Hey Beautiful People! This past weekend was very eventful (no pun intended) but, the conversations that surfaced was everything that I didn't know I needed and so much more! If you asked me last year, do I feel like I have people in my life that truly understand the creative struggle — eh, not really. …

Bossed Up in Sapphire Blue.

Hey Fly Friends! Did you all know my favorite color is blue? This hue blue. It's my birthstone — shoutout to my September babies rocking that Sapphire. I cheered for PeeWees, this was the color. High school and college, too. Well not cheering, only junior and senior year but colors, yea. Not to mention, there's …

Plaid Outlook

Hey Fly Friends! With all that's always going in our world and at times in my own life, sometimes I find myself retreating. Not in an anxious way, more so, in a focused way. I have been struggling to find words to express myself however, in no way am I feeling silenced. It just feels …

I feel like we're so conditioned to "be humble" and to "dumb down" ourselves to make others feel better about themselves and I …

Let Me Tell You About My Best Friends: Denim x Thrift

Hey Fly Friends! Do you know what I just realized? As much as I love and live in denim, I rarely show you all how I style them. For me, denim isn't just another pair of jeans. It's better than my cellphone, it's my lifeline. Before going away to college, I had to struggle with …

#TBT Big Florals for Blogger Brunch!

Hey Fly Friends! Today we're throwing it back to a couple of weeks ago when I attended the #SteeleVain Influencer Brunch during New York Fashion Week hosted by Monroe Steele of FashionSteeleNYC and Vanessa of VanaVain.  Some events leave you drained but this one was by far, the prettiest I've been to in a LONG …

Mentally Strong in Power Red.

Hey Fly Friends! It's finally September and if you know me, you know this is MY season. I love everything about this month. For one, it's my birthday — the 18th to be exact, so feel free to send gifts. I wear a size 7 shoe, lol. September also means Fall, which is my favorite …

Back To Cool.

Hey Fly Friends! As Summer winds down, I'm trying to bare shoulders everyday and wear all of cute sundresses before it's too late! I purchased this racerback dress and jacket from Target when the weather first broke and have been plotting on it ever since but, have yet to wear it all Summer. I was …
